Running waayyyy tired today. But y'all know what happened. It was E3 day one! Lots of good games (lots so many omghnnng) were shown, some were announced, and Sony checked all the boxes.

What are your guys' highlights for today? Disappointments? Predictions for tomorrow?


Short-ass CAPS with cheese.

* - The new Save State. Today, it's Fandango writing about Fear Effect, and hard choices. Great stuff!

* - TroyFullbuster and his buddy Matt have a thorough breakdown of all the things they want in the next Smash Bros. game.

S - More censorship chronicles with OpiumHerz. This one is about Sniper Elite V2 (again) and pre-emptive censoring.

P - A new episode of the Shattered Podcast. Chicken.

A - TheManchild has some thoughts on game reviews, and why many react the way they do to them.

P - A new episode of the GoForRainbow Podcast. Apparently, Corey is not an alcoholic. I have my doubts :P



F - Instead of Dtoid PS3 FNF. they're changing their name to PS FNF. So all Sony Friday Night Fights will fall under the banner. Maybe the Xbox guys should do the same?

V - Mikki Saturn has some video predictions for E3. Hopefully you saw these before the conferences. There's a Nintendo one, at least. Still time!

T - JanicedCollins has some good tips on buying mobile games while minimizing disappointment.

T - shaxam1029 talks greed, risk & reward, and Isaac.

V - Mikki Saturn continues looking back at Mario's 2D platforming fun with Super Mario World.

T - Osga21 has some thoughts about the Microsoft E3 reveals.

V - The sign of a good game: you just keep playing even though you're dying. Watch BobofManframe die like a billion times in Rayman Legends, and say angry things.



L - Of all the things Sony did right today, they really didn't seem to help out the Vita enough. For ninjapresident, it was still enough.

R - nabokovfan87 is here to tell you the good word. Now that you know the word, does a gaming PC finally interest you?



This conference was quite a ride. In Failtoid just because it was blank space.

Okay; gotta go get ready for Smash Bros. and a bunch of other games. So relieved that games are actually the focus this year :)
*dances*

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!
