Penis penis penis penis penis penis. I've taken to saying penis as a greeting when I enter a room lately. Also I've sucked at recapping lately, 1 late recap, 1 missed recap last week (a change in recap computer which screwed me over) and now an ON TIME RECAP! Check the skies.

Videogames videogames videogames. I haven't exactly been playing much lately. It's been bitesized nuggets of gameplay when I feel like it. Instead I've been doing not much again. It's really quite hard to think of what I've really been doing lately.

Oh right, I've gone into election mode. I'm a hopeless election addict and it's my home country heading towards one this time. I have manifestos to read, news to watch and read and come May 6th an entire glorious night of coverage to obsess over courtesy of the hilarious Jeremy Paxman and hopefully the insanity of the BBC's graphics department.

I need help. Oh well, here are some blogs and the answer to that most critical question. Where did I put Beyamor's quest for Failtoid blog?



* - I won't keep you waiting, Beyamor gets Topsauce because his #2 is still making me giggle
* - Good rant, Apple aren't nearly as safe among nerds now everyone else is catching up
* - What the original Xbox Live (being deactivated today as you read this) means to Alakaiser
* - Related to the above blog, Tarvu's hosting one final blowout to say goodbye to Halo 2
* - Dear Niero, can we have a Dreamtoid category in the Cblogs?



A - Thoughts on games that repeat the same formula

A - GAME CAKE!! Grimspoon's Day of the Tentacle cake
F - Xandaca saw Clash of the Titans, poor guy
M - Guncannon showcases some of his favourite MMX intro stage remixes



? - This is certainly quite random, especially as a first blog



F - OK, some context would be nice, else this is just pointless rage
F - I don't feel good failing this, especially with the comments being brutal (and hilarious)
F - There are adverts in my Cblogs
F - uck off


(NJ, also ZOMG I ACTUALLY PUT MY AVATAR IN HERE)

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!
