I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and stuffed their stomachs full of delicious food. I ate enough for three people to be honest with you, so I'm pretty content. When I wasn't eating I was spending most of my holiday traveling, which didn't allow me much time to play games. My girlfriend and I have decided to not travel anywhere next year. If people want to celebrate Thanksgiving with us, they can come to our house and we'll cook them food. We aren't traveling all over the state again to visit multiple families. It's just not gonna happen.

When I did find the time to game this week, I played Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, and Modern Warfare 2. I finally got a chance to try out Special Ops mode in MW2, and I am completely hooked. My friend Chris and I are working our way through every level, not moving onto the next until we get all 3 stars. So far we are about 40% of the way through. I absolutely love it! Ratchet and Clank is awesome as well, but I don't want to say to much on that subject because I'm writing the official review for Gamer Limit. It's going to get a high score, I can tell you that much. Before I forget, I also downloaded GTA: China Town Wars for my PSPgo. I look forward to diving head first into that soon.

So how was everyone else's holiday? Did you all eat yourself into a comma and game till your heart's content, or was it just another weekend for you?

By the way ... for your viewing pleasure this week ... I present the Turkey Dragon ....

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!
