Just when you've thought it's safe to relax, along comes a surprise ScottyGasm to the face!

As always, hello my lovely Dtoiders! At the moment I'm exhausted and eating hot dogs (which are a nice comfort food for me). Back on the unemployment line after my temporary job ended today, which is a shame but at least I'll be able to focus on a less temporary thing to do with my life. Or... just play video games until I realize I'm almost broke and take the first job that'll hire me. Either way really.

Speaking of gaming though, things have been good. Beat ODST, which I mostly liked. Frankly didn't dig the story or any of the main characters, none of whom were memorable or even really all that likable. It's a real shame the good story was all within the audio logs, which did something interesting and unique without really interfering with a fairly well defined period in the Halo universe... On top of that I took advantage of a used game sale and picked up Arkham Asylum, Raiden Fighters Aces, Prince of Persia, and Tomb Raider Anniversary for $60, less than the price of Arkham Asylum brand new. Go me! Plan on digging into those soon. ^_^

Um, I was going to also talk about the latest Dtoid/Reddit spat, but I honestly can't be bothered. There are people who would be more than willing to argue with me and they care a lot more than I do. I will however ask that if someone could give me a legitimate reason why Reddit and Digg exist I would appreciate it. <3

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!
