So, last night, during a game of L4D, I was discussing with my fellow players the game of Humans vs. Zombies, which, surprising to me, none of them knew about. So, I thought I’d give a basic overview here, for anyoe who hasn’t heard of this magnificent game:
Normally played on college campuses, HVZ (called many different things by many people) is a zombie apocalypse LARP. You start off with a group of humans and a group of zombies, both of which wear pre-set bandanas (humans wear them on their arms/legs, zombies on their heads). In the real world, it’s up to the zombies to yank the bandanas off of the humans to “turn” them. But, to defend themselves, the humans use balled-up socks and Nerf guns to shoot zombies in the head. Any zombie shot must stand in place for 15 minutes, until he “respawns”. After a set time (usually a few weeks), the zombies make a final stand against the remaining humans. Here at BG, that means the humans have to make it from the Student Union to the “heli-pad” (the library), where they will be rescued. Whoever is still human at the end wins. Check out all the rules here, and try and get a game going at your college. This shit is fun as hell.

Alright, for today’s cblog goodness, we’ve got the ladies of The View hating on the Wii Fit, the creation of Dtod Denver, and the biggest Mr. Saturn doll I’ve ever seen.

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!
