Taken and adapted for cats from Ever So often
As we are all Cats here I won’t spare any purrs (yeah I know bad pun lol), so down to business. As of my first post here on Nekojonez’s gaming blog, I have not posted anything else and for that, I do apologize to you my fellow cats. I have been working on some new content and as you may know, I do other stuff like podcasting, but I did not post them here as I believe if I am going to post something here it has to be specialized and not just a blatant copy of what I have somewhere else unless it is relevant. The Podcast I do is a mix of many different things and so it won’t be posted here unless Neko is a guest on an episode and in such a situation he tends to post it himself. If my little cat brother wishes it then I will post some other content that may not concern gaming like manga reviews but this is a gaming blog so I doubt that would be appropriate. Anywho I’m here now and I hope you all forgive me and lend me your paws. 😉
What I have been working on is a new series called From Manga to Video Game. It will be the focus of most of my new writing. As the basis for a few of my new articles, it will be a way for me to stretch my limbs as a writer. If you are a regular reader of the BSB you will notice that even though I am more active than I have been over the closing half of last year I am still not putting out nearly as many articles as I use to when we first started the BSB in 2012.
I keep telling others the reason that I’ve not been writing as much is because I have not been completing as many games and that my focus is mostly on manga these days, which in fact is primarily true, but it is not the only reason that I have not been publishing as much as I use too. Notice the use of the word Publish. I say publish because I write almost every other day.
The sad fact, however, is that I either leave most of my writing incomplete or never publish it because of my weird form of quality control that I impose on the content I create. With numerous articles, videos and podcast raw data on my PC, it should be a synch to take a few and publish them, but when what I have does not match the vision I have in mind there is a very limited possibility of me sharing it with others. This factor of my writing also bleeds over into other things I do which got me the nickname the over-planner.
So this week I have started to use my laptop to maximize the number of articles that I write so that I will have a larger pool to pull from when I am looking for content to publish. The first of these articles was inspired by my bro Neko who recommended as I am reading a lot more manga than the number of games I play that I should write an article about what manga would make great video games (see how smart my bro is). At first, I thought of doing a top 10 style list, however, as I sat down on the loo to write I realized that I wanted to turn it into a series and focus on each manga separately.
In this breakdown series I will write about manga that has not been made into games yet. If a character from that manga has made an appearance in a game, for example, the Jump ultimate series, but the manga has not received a proper stand-alone game then I still count it as that manga not having a game. I think almost all manga can be converted into excellent video games just as long as the developers remain close to the source material and develop it in a genre that suits the game in question. I look forward to the first “From Manga to Video Game” in the next 24 hours of this Social Cat’s views being published.
