I'm back... reading the cblogs of Destructoid in all its totality and recapping them for your reading pleasure. Your usual Cblog Recapper, the gentleman known as Casual Weaponry, unfortunately couldn't make the proceedings tonight due to working overtime stripping at a gay club. Bring home that bacon CW! So since I'm your recapper tonight I thought I would use this opportunity to address my new gaming addiction. Now mind you, I have SOCOM:Confrontation, which actually works now and is quite a bit of fun, The Resistance2 Beta which is Epic, can't wait for that game now, and a ton of games that I have that I haven't even made a dent in. So what game has me in it's clutches so? Well it's a game that I have had for awhile and played for ten minutes and thought yeah, not bad but too fruity. May get to it later. A LOT of time passed and when I was pissed because I couln't log in the servers of SOCOM day one I pulled out this game and started to play it again. What game you ask? Oh, this one.



Dear Lord, I can't stop playing this game. It's a drug you see. What makes it even more ridiculous is I'm a 37 year old man obsessed with making friends, joining the track team, going to the club at night, having spicy ramen noodles with my girl crazy friend, trying to get the right answers in class when questioned, trolling Home Ec for a ghost, oh and battling these shadows, who are mucking up everything, that only a select few, like the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad (SEES), which I'm a part of, see at night and the rest of the population are oblivious to because they're transmogrified to coffins... WUT? Why did I have to really start getting into this game? I can't pry my hands off the controller. AAAAARRRGGHH!

Now that I have gotten that out of the way, let us take a closer look at what was before. Spoiler Alert: There were a lot of interesting, newsy, strange and plain fail things you may have missed.

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!
