Cblogs of 8/15/09 and 8/16/09 + SilverDragonisms


I'm not sure if anyone has noticed, but I haven't been writing many cblogs the last month or so. I've posted a random one here or there, and of course I still do the cblog recaps every weekend, but besides that I have pretty much been dormant. So far I haven't told many people why, but I'm finally ready to divulge the reasoning behind my absence as of late.

The reason I haven't been writing much in the cblogs lately is because about a month ago I got hired on to be a Writer at For those of you who don't know, Gamer Limit is a newer gaming website run by our very own Magnalon. The website's goal is to "to provide unique, exclusive, relevant and expert coverage of the gaming industry, including insight on the inner and outer workings from developers and key figures at large."

As a writer for the site, I provide everything from news stories, to editorials and reviews. Right now I've mainly concentrated on writing editorials and opinion pieces, but I hope to start reviewing more games in the near future. The only game I've reviewed so far is Shatter for the PS3, but next week I'll be posting a review for Shadow Complex. If you are interested you should look for that. I write under my real name, which is Shawn Evans, if anyone is interested.

Unfortunately writing for Gamer Limit means I don't get to spend as much time writing for the cblogs, but I still plan on trying to squeek out a new blog every once in a while. I'll at least keep up my "Guess the Game Brain Teaser" series I've been doing the last couple months, and of course you'll get my weekend cblogs recaps every week. Everyone seemed to enjoy those posts. So now you know where I've been. Please feel free to come by and visit the site sometime and see what it's all about. There are some really great writers there who are all really passionate about games. It's really a winning combination.

Ok, enough about me .... now onto the weekend recaps. If you want a good laugh you should check out the "Failtoid" section.

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!
