Hey all. Happy... well, Tuesday I guess. Some other commitments kept me busy last night and unfortunately nobody was able to sub in, but since the bosses are on site today I figured I'd take the time to do the recap this morning. In the interest of tidiness I decided to tidy up how I organized the recaps, grouping similar categories together. Hopefully that'll make them easier to read. :)

Not a lot to say Gamewise. I picked up LEGO Star Wars: TCS for the 360 to replace the Gamecube copies I sold awhile ago. Just a fun game that didn't overcomplicate the series like LEGO Batman did. The only game I've really been playing though is Mega Man 9 on XBLA, which I originally picked up on WiiWare but didn't beat before selling off my Wii. That game plays like a dream with the Mad Catz SFIV fightpad, and is a very solid Mega Man game to boot!

Looking at yesterday's cblogs, here's one thing that Mr DIllinger's Video Game: The Movie piece made me wonder about: why do we bitch and moan about developers making worlds that are brown, edgy, and full of attitude, and then proceed to do the same thing when we make fanfics/movies/art from existing games? While that was an entertaining read, the idea has been done so many times...

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!
