Hello everyone! I didn't really play many games this week, but there are plenty of games coming out later this year that I'm super excited about. Atlus has been leaking all kinds of information about Persona Q and Persona 4 Ultimax leading up to their releases, and I still can't wait to play those. Initially, I wasn't too sure about Persona Q, but it looks like it's shaping up to be a fun little game! Seeing all my favorite characters in adorable chibi form in the trailers has been quite a treat. I'm not sure what the story will be like, but as long as it's fun to play, I'm sure I'll enjoy it. 



Ultimax is looking particularly great! I'm happy to see all the other characters from Persona 3 joining in, and I can't wait to try out Ken, Koromaru, Junpei, and the others to see how they play. I'm especially excited about the Ken/Koro combo. Everyone seems to hate Ken for some reason, but I thought he was pretty cool. He was in my party quite frequently in Persona 3. And Koromaru is obviously awesome. Maybe I'll finally replace Teddie as my main fighter!

Interestingly, they haven't really given us any more information about Persona 5. I'm actually kind of OK with this, as long as they're still working on the game. Out of all the Persona games they announced, Persona 5 is the one I'd prefer to go into blind. I went into both 3 and 4 blind, and I'm really glad I made that choice!

Another game I'm really looking forward to is Subnautica, an underwater exploration game that the Dtoid staff has been writing about a lot. It's from the team that did Natural Selection, a series which I've never played, but I heard it got great reviews and it looks lovely. Subnautica looks like it's heading into my dream game category, taking cues from games like Aquaria and Endless Ocean. So far, we've really only seen concept art and heard about the team's ideas behind the game. I'd like to see some gameplay before I get TOO excited, but the concept art does look phenomenal! 


Giant eel creatures? Hell yes!

There's plenty of other games that should be coming out soon as well, including Valiant Hearts, the Binding of Isaac Rebirth, possibly Mewgenics. And maybe we'll get to hear more about this Project Beast game that From Software is working on? I'm not sure I'm quite ready for another Souls game so soon after Dark Souls 2, but I'm sure it will be exciting, whatever it is!

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!
