Another week, another double dose of me all over your face! Big happenings this past week! Infinite Bits landed in Miami this past weekend and I hit it up on Saturday. I'm a bit disappointed that I couldn't make it on Friday to check out the Destructoid weird games panel. I had hoped that some of the crew would show on the following day so I could say hello, but the only person who appeared was Rey and I didn't want to interrupt him as he was busy filming and getting biznis done.

The rest of the show was pretty bitchin'. Ben Heck was there talking about his mad genius modding skills. Billy Mitchell was all smooth and shit. Egoraptor was Egoraptor, which is to say he was AWESOME! LIKE, OHMYGOD! HOTNESS! I WANNA BANG YOU! Finally, there was Doug Walker, a.k.a. The Nostalgia Critic. Cool guy. He's got a new video coming up and when it drops I'm gonna talk about it.

Of course, the big draw was the games. There was a slew of games spanning every console EVAR, but I found myself being drawn back to the big widescreen where a massive game of Saturn Bomberman was going down. Seriously, you guys, ten-player Bomberman is, like, the best game ever. No denyin'. I need to get myself a Saturn, a copy of that game, and nine other people. That stuff is dope.

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!
