It's snowing...

And I am cold and grumpy and I want the snow to go away. Winter always puts me in a foul mood. I don't really have anything for you today as far as these -isms go, but here are some pictures of kitties in the snow. They make me feel slightly less hateful towards snow.

* - Though I remain pretty optimistic about the current state of video gaming myself, I definitely agree with Char Aznable's complaints about the industry. But there are plenty of great games out there, you just have to know where to look!

M - Returner Mike's debut Cblog focuses on the monthly topic of sex in video games. He has a very reasonable viewpoint, and I'd say he handles the topic quite well.

M - ccesarano dreamed of creating a well-written hentai game, but the idea never came to fruition.

A - segastardust recently had a very bad experience at EB Games, a store he once loved.

A - CommanderCC offers up a cautionary tale of modding addiction and the problems that can arise from modding a game too heavily.

A - Pixielated makes some adjustments to her RPG quest, as she will now be focusing primarily on Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem.

A - Would it be beneficial to give developers a tighter budget to keep them from going under? Perhaps, but I don't think modern gamers would be too happy about it.

A - A brief history of Ketsui, a vertical shoot 'em up by Cave.





F - Friday Night Fights on the PC + Giraffes!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + MURDER SWORD.

F - Friday Night Fights on the Wii U + Yoshi is made of string!

T - Some thoughts on the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo by lokhe.

R - nilcam bought a very pricey set of component cables for his GameCube and gives them a review.

$ - January 25th UK releases and bargains!





V - Nick RP Green talks about video games while doing the dishes. He also mentions something about "hard on hot chocolate," so it sounds like a sexy video!

V - Video review of 10,000,000 by DanielCampbell.

R - Ronin4life seems to think the snow is affecting Disqus... goddamn snow!

C - Like and sub if you enjoy!!!!!!!111!!1! (I'm not really a fan of blogs like this...)

C - I guess he wins the sexual innuendo contest?

C - I don't understand why you would complain about an HD remake existing. Just don't buy it?

F - Beijing spams the shit out of the Dtoid Cblogs. Fuckin' Beijing.

F - Welcome back! Write a real blog next time.

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!
