Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year! Not only because I get to see family and eat all of the delicious foods, but also because it happens near my birthday. This year, my birthday fell on Thanksgiving day! I celebrated by playing board games with the family and eating too much turkey, cranberries, pumpkin pie, and sweet potatoes! My god, I could eat nothing but sweet potatoes for the rest of my life and be content. Seriously, boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew... I'll eat them however they're cooked. They are unquestionably my favorite food.


Oh god, I just googled sweet potatoes and now I want them inside of me so bad.

Black Friday also happened, but I didn't buy anything this year. I only went out on Black Friday once in my life, to buy a laptop because my old one had just died (after I spilled Coke on it... oops). It was a crazy experience, and I haven't really felt the desire to go anywhere on Black Friday since. There were some great deals though, I'm sure. Anybody get anything good?

I'm gonna keep things short this week because I'm still relaxing on my holiday break. I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving!

* - Roberto Plankton's art and words are always entertaining. This time, he explores himself by creating self portraits inspired by several games. I'd say the Nemesis one is my favorite of the bunch.

A - StriderHoang expected more adventure out of Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage? Sad day...

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + Food comas!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + More food comas!

C - Kwamouflage plans to blog more often from now on and keep his various series going.

T - The Walking Dead is HightowersWorld's game of the year, no question!

T - TheKodu actually kind of liked the new Devil May Cry demo! Here's what he thought about it.

$ - November 23rd UK releases and bargains!

A - The webcomic Ctrl-Alt-Del appears to be officially over, and nekobun is thankful. Also, I've watched the video he posted at the end of the blog at least 5 times already.

F - Bankrupt Gamer finally watched the Star Wars movies for the first time and reviews them.

R - TroyFullbuster tells us what's been going on in his life this month. Then he hates on Thanksgiving? What the heck, dude?



I am thankful for no fails this week!

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!
