I don't really watch TV. Not really ever, anymore. Even the Daily Show doesn't do it for me these days, it's just so damn political now. But... I had Breaking Bad. 

HAD

But now it's gone. The ending. I loved it. I adored it actually. Seemed to be the first real series ending I actually appreciated. I'm going through withdrawal, guys. But enough of my first-world problems.

Been playing GTA V almost nonstop lately, though I'm yet to really dive into the online. A few days ago I gave it a shot and it didn't work at all. I've kind of lost interest to be honest. A couple of sessions at my friend's house of just running around hitting other players with cars and I'd had my fill. I'll probably give it another ago.  I really need something to do until Arkham Origins comes out and I'm just not not in the mood for another quicktime adventure from Quantum Emotions. 



So I figure I'll ask you guys the real question... what do I watch/play now?

* - A well done overview of the gaming industry.

* - Can the Legacy of Kain be saved? Benny has the answers.

A - Nocy with some food for thought on the issues sandbox games bring to storytelling.

A - Travy with some Steam Machine speculation for you.

C - MUSICIANS WANTED

E - New fan site celebrating Dragoons.

R - Shuudy with a fine review of Shadow Warrior

P - Strider with a GTA Online brochure for the uninitiated.

R - A thoughtful Killer is Dead review.





L - A new zero cool which is dare I say.... cool

V - New Pocketoid, ya'll!

F - The weekly blog that's just a video link.

But seriously, what ever happened to Huell?

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!
