So, this week was my friends birthday and, like most people do, he decided to have a birthday party. I went round to his house with everything you take to a birthday party, only to find that I was the first one there. Now, for some bizarre reason, he had set up his old PSone and challlenged me to a duel. If I could get through the entirety of Crash Bandicoot, he would give me half of his birthday money.

I almost had it. I had gotten to the third island when that stupid machine gun boss killed me. Sweet! After that, more and more people started to arrive, including some drag queens (Why they were there is beyond me.) I barely remember the rest of the evening, but I DO remeber waking up next to a naked man. At this point I left the house, because enough was enough.

Also, Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver came out yesterday! I'm planning on getting it today or tommorow. I'll post back here with my friendcode if anyone wants it.

Now on with the caps...

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!
