Hello! You might be wondering where Qalamari is. Well, we decided it might be beneficial to us both to try switching up days. We might wind up going back to our original days, for this week you'll have to bear with us and our CRAZY scheduling!

I saw Watchmen tonight, and I gotta say I don't remember the last movie I watched that had more penis than breast. Glowing blue penis at that! I was discussing with my roommates about how Dr. Manhattan should've been naked when he fought in 'Nam, and I commented on how he could've used his penis to crush the soldiers instead of just blowing them up.

Gaming wise, I starting playing my recently acquired copy of Link's Awakening DX. Just as good as I remember, and since the colour is provided via the Super Game Boy instead of the Game Boy Color I can play it on my nice 42" LCD screen in full colour!

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!
