Hello everyone! Hope you all had a fun Halloween!



I spent my Halloween night playing Cave Story, since the Steam version of the game got a special Halloween update where all of the sprites were given a holiday-themed redesign. It was adorable playing through the game again and seeing all of my favorite characters in their Halloween costumes, and a lot of the enemies were redesigned as well. There were also many references to other video games, which made me really happy. There were Metroid enemies, Behemoths and Cactuars, Sue dressed up as Princess Peach, Curly as Samus, and Balfrog as Wart from Super Mario Bros. 2!

I think it's really cool when games do stuff like this for the holidays! It gives me another reason to revisit some of my favorite games and provides me with a (somewhat) fresh experience. It may have essentially been the same game, but it sure had a much different tone to it, especially when fighting the Core while it's painted up with giant red lip-sticked lips!

So what did you all play on Halloween?

* - burningsoup reviews Wreck-It Ralph and explains why he thinks it's a very important movie. I hope to see this soon!

* - Elsa has a problem with Halo 4's proposed threat to ban players for sexist language, and offers up some alternate solutions for dealing with harrassment.

* - Awesome, animalistic Podtoid fan art from ThomJownes!

A - Every once in awhile a game comes along with really innovative ideas, which unfortunately never seem to be used again in other games. One of those innovative games was Freedom Fighters, which silent1234hill tells us all about.

A - ManWithNoName explores the myth of Pandora's Box, a theme which seems to be utilized in many video games.

A - dancinbojangles loved Halo's universe, but thought the storyline of the series could have used some work.

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + Giant, chainsaw-wielding Nazis!

F - Friday Night Fights on the 3DS + China gets all the cool stuff!

E - There was a Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament today in Dublin, Ohio. This is actually very close to where I live; too bad I was working.

C - shaxam1029 loves Destructoid, and Destructoid loves him back <3

R - TroyFullbuster reviews the HD re-release of Jet Set Radio for PSN and XBLA.

$ - November 2nd UK releases and bargains.

R - Skid Row Trash seems to be having some problems with the Xbox Achievement Rewards program.

F - I think this is a spambot?

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!
