[I know I posted this a few weeks ago on a different recap, but no one even guessed. Basically all you have to do is guess what community member is depicted in the picture above to win. It's also quite an appropriate picture for this week so ya.]

So I finally started Persona 3: FES. Got about an hour in before I started the recaps, and so far I'm really impressed. I really loved Persona 4, maybe I'll like 3 better, who knows.

Speaking of Persona, I ordered Alter's Yukiko Amagi 1/8 scale figure today. The only place it's available is in Atlus' Japanese store, so I had to get it trough a third party company. It was really expensive (came to about $115 Canadian), but I think it's worth it. Do any of you guys have this figure?

Today was a great day for Cblogs, Electro Lemon is back from his several month hiatus, unangbangkay wrote a great monthly musing, and Nick Chester makes a failblog, but it's okay because he is the editor in chief.

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!
