I'll be honest with you, Destructoid... My heart's not in it tonight. I've had a lousy week and the last 24 hours in particular have been a positive cavalcade of unpleasantness. Like any good robot however, I subscribe to the law of the future: You gotta do what you gotta do.



Let's get this over with, shall we? I'm looking forward to taking a shower, crawling into a fetal ball and whimpering for a few hours. My apologies in advance, this will most likely be scourged of the wit and charm I'd like to think I bring to these posts.


*-Genki Jam made me think of a Metal Gear/Shitty Robot Michael Bay Battle Movie crossover, which can never be undone.
*-Vitamin H's Musing looks at the survival horror genre... or does it? Truly, this game is its creators Crowning glory.
*-Megastryke for Editor. Who's with me?
*-Forums are back up! No more BRB.


P-Failcast has produced a podcast which they assure us is NOT about Gurren Lagann. Whatever that is.
S-Goodgamer77's Fake Game Friday was inspired by last week's episode of RFGO! It's a nice idea, I'm sure someone will steal it eventually.
S-Gemsi's EU release list looks a little more promising than the last couple'a weeks.
P-FSA has reached its tenth episode.



Nuthin'. Uh, let's see.

That work for ya? (Tweeted by The Fox Trot guy.)


S-The Toilet Duck takes issue with the WePC ads currently running on Dtoid.
C-Coonskin made some arrangements. CTZ failed at math.
I-Caelas Powdery Cheese Shadowfoot introduced himself. Welcome to Destructoid... I believe you may have overtaken Scary Womanizing Pig Mask in the longest avatar name competition.


N-Grasshopper Studios and XSeed may be parting ways.
N-...Which is Ok, because they confirmed Fragile for a North American release.
N-Which is apparently good news.
N-Flower, Sun and Rain went gold. Delicious copypasta. Rain dude, not Moon.
N- Free DLC is always nice, even better when it's good. In case you hadn't heard, "The Touch" is free for Guitar Hero RIGHT NOW.
T-inFAMOUS has some glitches, same as any other open world game. Aren't we used to this by now?
T-Square's new MMO is codenamed "Rapture." Insert Bioshock joke here.
T-Dragonzigg's E3 predictions.
T-Tubatic, surely you must be aware that John Excrement will be announced in the week leading up to E3.
F-Building a video game canon, week 2.
R-That guy with the long name from above is thinking about trying a new system for game reviews.
R-Haxan's "review" of Zelda: Majora's Mask gets into some serious detail. It's clear he loves the game. My favorite Zeldas have always been the nontraditional ones. MM is about as nontraditional as it gets.
T-Covah is grumpy at Sega's announcement of what amounts to Super Sonic Kart. Not for the reason you might expect, though.
V-Remember that Mega Man 2.5D game trailer that came out a few months ago? Apparently the project has progressed significantly. Capcom, hire Peter Sjostrand. It works for Valve.
T-Nilcam's ponderings pre-E3.
T-PC gaming is looking pretty decent this year.
$-Unreal Tournament 3 will be free on Steam this weekend, and available at a drastically reduced price point.
T-EvilSpants thinks it's a bit odd that the electric urban God carries what is very clearly a Nextel walkie-talkie.


M- Power Glove has an artist list (so far) for Guitar Hero 5.
F-Cowzilla reviewed Drag Me To Hell.
V-Mass Effect 2 dropped a trailer, Covah dropped a pantload.


V-Mr Glider posted a video about a Street Fight and a shrew.
L-Zero Punctuation's "review" of Duke Nukem Forever was spot on. If you haven't seen it yet, I suggest viewing it at your earliest convenience.
V-Something about Persona 3 and a video. What does AMV stand for?
R-Penn Jillette weighed in on the Japanese rape game controversy.
C-Spellcheck, grammar check, and please be aware of the format weirdness from Opera or whatever browser you're using.
V-Substance TV 9 is out.
C- More content, please. Stream of consciousness is fine as long as it doesn't cause the reader to lose theirs.
C-Maybe a picture or a video next time? I appreciate the sentiment, but 2 lines does not a blog post make.


F-This is the wrong way to introduce yourself. Not too late to hide this one.

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!
