Gee, I sure do hope everyone wants to hear more about those stompy Titanfall robots!

What? No? Oh, okay... but that's all I've been playing.

Well what else do I have going on? The other day I made a Tumblr account where you can see more stompy robot and videogame related things. You might notice I have an About Me and Portfolio section on there like a big boy real writer. I'm trying to up my game and start writing "for real" so I needed a one-stop shop where people could check out some of my stuff. So yeah, that's a thing.

I've had Jazzpunk staring at me from my Steam library for the past two (three?) weeks. My brother looked me in the eyes the other day and told me I was a "soul-criminal" for not playing it yet.  Hopefully I'll be able to crave out some time for some surreal espionage action over the next few days.

Mercenary Kings is finally out in full-actual-for-real-this-time release and I really want to play that too! If not for the oldschool Metal Slug action, than for the charming pre-release trailer. I have a special place in my heart for soft voices singing about terrible things.






- No topsauce today *sadface*
P - 1st Spooge Office reporting for holodeck clean up duty.

P - The Videogame Rescue podcast/youtube group are talking about Rifts, and books, and faces this week.

R - Gather your Einherjar for this review of Valkyrie Profile 2. I was a HUGE fan of VP1 and it makes me a little sad to have missed the sequel. 

M - DRUM SOLO! DRUM SOLO! DRUM SOLO! Er,- sorry. I watched the new Muppets movie last weekend and I'm still in kind of an Animal mindspace.

A - An advance look at the Drakengard 3 guide book. It will have pictures of those crazy flower face girls just chilling in a cafe apparently, which actually kind of makes me want to check it out. Can we just get a game about girls with flowers coming out of their eye sockets chatting with each other?

? - Your glorious leader and mine, Zombie Orwell, is back. Soak in his mind thoughts, feel his disappointment at the lack of Eminem loin chops in his life, and maybe buy his "transcriptionist's" book.

C - Looks like Joe did a lot of leg work in his Fancypants to put together this series of interviews. Which makes it all the more of a shame that he didn't include any info about who he's interviewing, why it's interesting, or even what he wanted to accomplish. This post really needs a blog.

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!
