Hello my pretties. I'm actually at work right now, taking a break from yet another late night to provide you with a cblog recap. Shame Youtube is so addictive, or I might have gone home by now. :P

At least I have the Baltimore NARP this weekend to look forward to. :D

It was brought up in a previous recap I did that I should change my avatar back from this:


To what it originally was, which is still what I link to at the bottom of my recaps (opps):


What do you think? The original was a picture taken on the balcony of an old apartment, and of course is a Mr. Destructoid papercraft that sadly didn't survive my last move. The new one is an crop/edit of the title screen of The Man Who Killed Batman, one of the more entertaining episodes from Batman: The Animated Series.

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!
