BWOMP BWOMP!!!

Hello once again my pretties. ScottyG here giving you a healthy dose of a ScottyGasm.

To be honest I haven't been up to all that much. Got laid off right before PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAX, and spent the week after PAAAAAAAAAAAAAX sick in bed. Since then it's been a lot of sloth and video games with very little in the way of job hunting. I did manage to get a temporary job though which pays depressingly well (compared to the previous jobs I've had), but I do need to get my butt in gear and figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. ;)

Gamewise I replayed No One Lives Forever (<3) with the intention of making a "Forgotten" Monthly Musing. It's a bit late for that now but I still intend to do a writeup as it's a criminally underrated game and Kate Archer is another perfect example of a good female protagonist that people keep overlooking.

I also played through Tomb Raider Underworld, managing to get 1000GS on it. Planning on doing a review, possibly with more nekkidness. Is it sad that the only two games I have 1000GS on are both Tomb Raider games?

Now if you'll excuse me it is my birthday tomorrow (technically today I suppose), so I best be getting to bed. <3 <3 <3

Also... Tucker Max adverts? I know you gotta pay the bills and all, but WTF Dtoid? Everybody knows that Maddox > Tucker Max a million times over. :)

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!
