Hello my lovely Dtoiders! I hope you have been taking care of yourself. <3

How have I been? Pretty darn good. I traveled across the border to Seattle for the weekend for a belated Thanksgiving feast with Dtoid Northwest. Had a wonderful dinner including a deep fried turkey and one deep fried twinkie (probably the last I'll ever have), then fell into a food coma while people played Pimp My Ride. A good weekend for sure. :)

I'm currently listening to a few songs from Nintendo Land on loop. Whatever happened to the tunes? I'm not against grand orchestral and licensed soundtracks, but you don't get many simple catchy tunes anymore.

Anyways, enjoy the caps!

*- Nekobun shares some personal memories, and convinces me to give Red vs Blue a watch finally

A- Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified: Scotty's Duty would be a system seller for me
A- More thoughts on how Sony could help the Vita
P- Episode 64 of Zero Cool, where they (thankfully) don't talk about the N64! Download it right now!
A- (SPOILERS) I know the story of Spec Ops: The Line, and I STILL want to play it

C- Whoa! A contest! Bearded Gent is giving away the Humble Bundle for Android 4!

S- Tales of Dark Souls adventures
C- Capcom is bumming Dapper Blanka out
C- Is it time for the old "consoles vs pcs" debate again?

R- Black Ops 2 review, as well as some bbcode issues (oh bbcode, you so crazy...)
T- They really should have called it Persona 4 "The" Golden XD
T- Weighing in on stealth vs lethal preferences
T- Remembering back to our time in Vice City
R- Hitman Absolution review
R- Halo 4... happy that this time I'm recapping people are actually reviewing recent games! :D
T- Nice, practical ideas for if Sony does a remodel of the Vita

F- To be fair, the tv/film industry is woefully ignorant of... just about everything
F- Honestly I didn't think Jar Jar was any worse than Ewoks, or anything else put in specifically for kids
S- I wouldn't say 15% is a "crazy" sale, but a deal is a deal. Check it out!

L- I think this is a joke? I mean... it has to be right? It's either okay satire or... I'm going to have to cry
C- Nostalgia is a hell of a thing...

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!
