LONG BLOG

I remarked last week that I'd burnt out on videogames. This week I got Pokemon Heart Gold. Problem solved. It's amazing not only how well Gold and Silver have aged, but also how much more I appreciate the game now I'm older.

Saying that, the Pokewalker may be the most evil accessory ever created. Everywhere I go I have to have the damn thing with me. I walk to work with it, change Pokemon, wear it during work, change Pokemon on my break, then change Pokemon again before I walk home with it. If the aim was to get people walking then mission accomplished I suppose. Also casually catching Pokemon with it while I'm taking a piss is hugely satisfying (excusing the splatter when a Dratini showed up earlier).

Parting thought directed at Nintendo Europe. CAVE STORY NAO.

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!
