If you haven't picked up this month's copy of Edge magazine then I highly suggest you do, it contains a few choice quotes from developers, PR people and the magazine's writers taken from the last 199 issues (its the magazine's 200th issue). Choice nuggets that say we were once excited for Daikentana. Also there's their latest top 100 list of the greatest videogames of all time, based on how they are to play today. Spoiler, Ocarina of Time is STILL the champion. Space Giraffe is also in the list.

Also I bought Peggle off XBLA today. Not much to say on that subject, its Peggle and its awesome. Xbox Live play is also brilliant. I annihilated the second player I took on.

Finally, its the Resident Evil 5 limb hunt in London this morning, if you're in London get down to Westminster Bridge at 11am to see the carnage.

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!
