Hello fellow Dtoiders I will be filling in for ManChild today. I recently got my Link Figure and it's amazing, Figma makes my favorite posable toys and I'm so happy Nintendo is finally getting some proper figures made of their franchises, I already have the Samus, and plan on getting Pit, I even have a Layton Revoltech even though he's technically a Level 5 character. So close to being able to recreate Smash in figure form.

I finally got around to beating Resident Evil 5 today, and I'm a bit mixed. On one hand it's inferior to Resident Evil 4 in every way, it's not even a little scary, a lot of the boss fights are lame, and some levels dragged on. On the other it's a really good local co-op game. It's some of the most fun I ever had with a local co-op game. What sets this game apart from most other co-op games is that you have to constantly work together by trading ammo/supplies back and forth, saving your partner, and building strategies together such as one player becoming bait and the other sneaking up on the enemy. Most co-op games are really about playing the game about the same time and competing over who gets the higher score and more kill. this game is more about surviving together and cooperating which was really fun when it came together. If I had played this game Solo with the computer AI I probably would not have liked it very much. It's a shame so many people are saying that 6 wasn't very good, as I adore 4 and thought that 5 was some decent fun. I'm definitely going to have to check out Revelations on 3DS.

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!
