Hello hello once again my pretties! Time once again for me to fill in a gaping hole in the recap week with a massive, overflowing ScottyGasm.

I think I mentioned that I got laid off at the end of August. Well, I started a temp job this week for the provincial election... group I guess it'd be called. Going to be in the election office where people can go to fix/add/remove their voter information, or fill out a special ballot. I was told up front that it will be fairly boring and uneventful, but fufills the government's mandate of providing service. Plus it sadly pays exceedingly well.

Gamewise I'm almost done Professor Layton 2. I LOVE it, but like all puzzle games there's no real replay value and I'll be getting rid of it as soon as I'm done it. I might pass it on to a friend rather than trade it in though. I got ODST from my sisters on Saturday, but I've put about a half hour into it. I keep saying hopefully tomorrow I'll get more gaming time, but with this internet addiction who knows?

Right... I need to get some sleep for work tomorrow. Time to finish up this mess of a ScottyGasm, and wipe it clean on your cheek. *puts on cape and flies off*

WHOOOOOOOOOOOSH!!

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!
