Cblogs of 06/29/17 + Busy, Dizzy Times

It has been quite the news-filled week for my good self. I've been hit with a lot of headlines, both good and bad, and processing it all has led to some panic and sleepless nights, as well as some worry for the well-being of my closest...

 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 6/26/2017 + Losing my 3DS

It seems such a shit way for this relationship to end. I have been playing games on the DS family of systems for more than 10 years. Starting with the Fat DS and ending up with my beutiful Hurule gold New 3DSXL. Probably, I would make...

 
 
 
 

Cblog Recaps of 6/16/17&6/23/17+Run boy run

 Dying Light is basically Dead Island but not shit. Its also an interesting example of cribbing stuff from other games to make your own pretty good game and how thats not always noxious if you do it right and make a worthwhile ga...

 
 
 

Cblogs of 06/22/17 + Ch-Ch-Changes

'The times they are a changin'' warbled Bob Dylan way back when, and how right he was. Who knew then that his song was actually about the acquisition of our beloved Destructoid with Toronto-based effort Gaming Enthusiast, That Dylan su...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 06/15/17 & 06/08/17 + Hit The Snooze

I was once told that sleep is for the weak. I don't consider myself a particularly weak individual, but boy, do I need my sleep.When I was younger, I would literally stay up playing games until I 5/6am. Then I would get about two hours...

Cblogs of 6/12/2017 + Etrian-isms

The Etrian Odyssey series is a weird beast. At one time, an obscure Atlus RPG on the DS, and then a small-time phenomenon on the 3DS. At least for a while, Atlus doubled down on the series and two quick-fire remakes were released afte...

 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 6/5/17+6/9/17-A week of stuff

Its that time of the year again-the news has dried up in anticipation of what is arguably the biggest gaming event of the year-E3. All the shiny new things will be announced that haven't been spoiled by the internets incessant hunger ...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 5/22/2017 + Gridlock-isms

This is going to be a short "ism". I just came back home after suffering through a 4 hour gridlock, and I have very little to say. Traffic flow is very similiar to how fluids flow. Imagine all cars as moluecules on the road, and how a...

 
 
 

Cblogs of 05/14/17 & 05/21/17 + Jammy Review

Did you know that sometimes I don't play games? Sure I get my kicks with both computer and pen-n-paper RPG games, but doing the former on the train always makes me feel like my device will be nicked and the latter is a bit of a faux-p...

 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 11/05/2017 + THE LAST BASSISMS?

Except as a reservist ya know Hey guys, Bass here. Life has been pretty rough on my end the past week, not going to lie. Work is stressful and tiring, mostly because I see myself falling for the same mistakes as I did years ago. Stabl...

 
 
 

Cblogs of 5/15/2017 + Fatal Frame-isms

As a series, Fatal Frame never managed to transform its cult following into any mainstream appeal, despite the success of similar games at doing so; like Silent Hill’s earlier games. In many way, the fifth game in the series sho...

 
 
 
 

Cblogs of 11/05/2017 + Communisms

Get it? It's like a recap thing but it's also relevant because I went to Cuba last week! While I missed you guys, being free from the internet's grasp for a whole week was also sort of liberating. I've graduated into the big leagues, ...

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!
