Let the grandpa rape begin anew!


So how about that Wii U? Any of you grab that thing? Damn right some of you did, we even have some blogs down there about it! I saw a lot of folks on Twitter gabbing about it as well. Looks like a sweet system, but it's not grabbing me atm. Nothing screams BUY ME NOW! Looks like I'll be waiting awhile before I plunge into another Ninty console (besides the 3ds again).

What I've been doing instead of playing with a new fangled console, is diving more into FTL. I also unfortunately watched Total Recall today. Cool design (minus the ME3 lens flare), shit movie (Colin Ferrell never CLOSES his fucking mouth either!). Now, let us get back to the subject of FTL. I discovered the joy of modding the game and have been having a blast, playing with ships like this:



and this:



I've also turned the fleet off, increased events and encounters and maybe took a super op ship for a cruise. It's been a blast. The game wasn't even getting stale for me, but the minute I saw that Enterprise... hnnnnng.
All these cool things can be found here, along with instructions and the mod manager you'll need. Enjoy that.

What else have I been up too? Hrmmmm.... Well I royally fucked up the Cblog Fapcast, stupid recording program on my phone can't record more than 10m of audio, but I didn't notice that until AFTER we did the show. *FACEPALM* Now I must live in the fear that, at ANY moment, Strider will ninja into my house and strike me down.



Crafty little guy, that one is. He also has cyborg tiger. A Tyborger man! *shudders*

Hrmmmm what else..... Oh yeah! I've also been moving! Yaaay! Completely alone! Booooooo! Every damn muscle I have hurts and I still have about 1/4 of the way to go. 4 years in a house adds up, but I'm really happy about the whole thing. Moving to a bigger house, huge yards (DOGS AGAIN!) and most importantly: SAFER AREA. I'm so sick of all the craziness going on in North Highlands lately. People getting shot and robbed all the time. Apparently I time traveled back to Compton or Detroit in late 90s or something. So, so long ghetto! Hello, backstabbing suburban white people. Anyways, let's do some caps so I can go back to FTL.

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!
