Oh, lovely, lovely people. Welcome to another edition of the only recaps you care about on Tuesdays. Today, against the will of both my wallet and my wishes to not get another game until Christmas, I bought On The Rain-Slicked precipice of Darkness Episode 2, after having gotten the first episode last week. While I havenít played the game, I just need to take this time to give my immense gratitude and love for Tycho and Gabe, 2 guys who have created one of the greatest gaming empires ever, all because of a small webcomic. Aside from a webcomic, the boys have created gamingís best charity organization, and one of the best RPGs Iíve ever played. CONGRATS ON THE 10 YEARS, GUYS. Canít wait to see what the next 10 has in store.

So, with that out of the way, on to the recaps. The best L4D video youíll ever see, some interesting new blogger additions, and one of the funniest Mr. Sadistic lines Iíve ever read pepper todayís Cblog. Thereís also some other stuff liberally salted down there.

Todayís Cblogs may cause sneezing, tiny scratches and erectile disfunction.

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!
