Cblogs of 6/22/10 + Pendeltonisms

I've finally done it, folks. After months and months of letting my other…wait, I already did this two weeks in a row; let’s not make it three.

Anywho, the new Sam and Max episode came out today. All I have to say about it is that within a five minute period in-game, Black Flag, Monkey Island, and Starcraft are referenced. It’s also the most fun episode of this current series, in my opinion.

Yeah, short –isms are short; bite me, I’m tired. Now to the recaps…



*- A damn fine and high-class look at the idea of the phallus (and I don’t mean dongs…well, not entirely) in No More Heroes.

*- Wow, there was totally a Blade Runner game, and Stevil talks about it in this installment of Gamer Obscura.

*- Holy Awesome Fuck: The Scott Pilgrim War.

*- Om Nom On Souls wonders why we don’t have more video game characters that we outright hate, and not for their games, but their actions.

*- Cadtalfryn’s very epic, well-thought-out thoughts on Flower.

*- Everyone, get in here and congratulate JACK of No Trades for being with Dtoid for THREE years!

*- Wesley Susaya has a pretty great review of my favorite indie platformer, Eversion.



S- Now that E3’s all done, Brian (aka NihonTiger) asks What, if anything, ‘d You Get.

P- So here’s a Doctor Who podcast for the kind of people who’d be into that.



W- Yet another spectacular mrandydixon contest has come and gone, with Corduroy Turtle the victor.



N- England basically fucks over some game devs by getting rid of proposed tax breaks.

N- Not really noteworthy now, but yesterday there were a good amount of XBLA games at a huge discount.

V- Well now: check out the trailer for the winner of some Norwegian game contest, Norrland.

R- The Silent Protagonist reviews the unbridled awesome that is MGS: Peace Walker.

T- mjemirzian talks about the new Fire Emblem, Obnoxiously Long Title That Means Something Fancy In Japanese (I think that’s the proper translation).

T- Poe, in examining reactions to TLoZ: Skyward Sword, figures out why he loves Dtoid.

T- LuccaLover drops some change (roughly two cents worth) about Kinect.

T- garethxxgod has thoughts about Left 4 Dead zombies and XBLA vs. PSN, and wants to know what you think.

T- GiftofGab gets some bad games, which led him to write this article about them.

D- Lowell B talks about his love/hate relationship with Platinum Games.



L- Well that’s just not true.

L- Now this is just getting ridiculous.



F- No, I won’t enjoy.

F- Oh for fuck’s sake…

F- Listen to Gobun (p.s. that would make for a great t-shirt).

F- Hooray for advergames!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
The Adaptation

Some things don't belong in this world and yet they are conjured time and again by humans that wish to pay them tribute. A video game, book, comic or TV show becomes popular and later becomes adapted to another medium entirely or, worse, a mobile phone spin-off.

Sometimes you get Telltale's The Walking Dead and other times you get Super Mario Bros.: The Movie -- one a great tribute to the comics and TV shows and the other had its soul stolen and made a '90s movie executive's slave.

And here comes another classic game series with hopes of becoming a Netflix hit as I brace myself and hope it doesn't turn out to be a miserable pile of secrets.

Castlevania is a beloved series and with Konami it's sort of a surprise they'd do anything with it at all after running out the people that made their games good and running the franchise into the ground soon after. Yet here we are with an anime series debuting this week and I'm kind of excited for it.

History should leave me a bit more cynical, sure. I remember the Street Fighter live-action movie, the Zelda cartoon and much more, but Mortal Kombat was perfect in its camp and The Witcher games are pretty faithful to their source material. We even have games being adapted into other kinds of games by different developers. Borderlands is now a looter-shooter and a point-and-click adeventure and that works really well, actually.

So for this month's "Bloggers wanted," we want you head over to the community blogs and tell us about your favorite adaptations of games to other mediums or even your favorite adaptation of another medium to games. Use "The Adaptation: [Your game/title here]" in the title and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags.

Enough talk, have at you!
