More from me:

New game season seems to be upon us. I've not touched any of them. In fact, Mega Man 9 may well be the last new game I buy this year. Its not that I don't want to play Fallout 3 or Saints Row 2, its that sixty dollars is a lot to pay for a video game. Think about all the things that money can buy. According to the news, this year we should all be worried about saving money. Then think about the used games industry and how I can purchase at least two maybe three of last years best games for that same price. At the very least, I plan on picking up The Evil Overlord and Lost Odyssey. Those two look good for 20 bucks. I might even pick up one Rainbow Six Vegas. I saw it for fifteen at blockbuster and considered it.

I just feel like I'm out of the loop. Everyone is in betas or playing these new games, I feel left out. Mega Man 9 and Castle Crashers feel more like my kind of games anyway. If not for their cheap price or old school gameplay. The only thing that bothers me is the digital distribution. I can't loan out Castle Crashers or Mega Man 9 to anyone.

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!
