Hey you. Yeah, you. C'mere. Someone needs a hug. D'awwwwwwww. (pat pat)



I was gone most of the weekend, so I missed the majority of the festivities. From what the veterans have been telling me, this is nothing compared to the great Not my Turning Point Gaming Rig blizzard of aught six. I have a duty that needs fulfilling however, so I shall begin to climb Mount Cblog with all haste. For tonight only, the H under Communitoid stands for "Hug," not for "House." In actuality, the bulk of the hugstorm landed on the weekend, with just a few stragglers and slowpokes coming in today... people who like myself missed out on the frivolity when it was in full swing, and those who were basking in the afterglow and didn't want it to end. My condolences to RandomBullseye.

You will no doubt be pleased to discover that I finally figured out I wasn't supposed to bold everything in the entire goddamn post. Better late than never.

There's a Steaming copy of Left 4 Dead percolating in the background, a late Christmas gift to myself. If I time this right it should be just about ready as I get the recap done. If you're looking for a partner who knows how to duck and doesn't call dibs on anyone, look me up on Steam.

I'm going to do something a little different tonight and add a forum post to our Topsauce. Even more unconventionally, it's going above the banner. I'm a rebel. Don't try to change me, I'll just end up breaking your heart. *-If you wondered where Heretic and Reaprar were during the Hugstorm, educate yourself here. Also, insights into running this crazy community we all love.


*-Hey kid, want a job? Muddy Waterz voluntarily recapped the entire Hug phenomenon.
*-Tactix unveils a new series: Dtoid Community Discusses. This week, the topic is DLC.
*-At their best, these two Youtube videos remind me of "Duck Amuck." I can offer no higher praise than that.

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!
