I would like to begin tonight's recap by first thanking Garison for covering for me on yesterday's recap. That was the first time I have ever asked for someone to take over my spot, and I honestly felt bad. I probably shouldn't, since I have definitely covered for other people close to 15 times, but I still do anyways. Thanks Garison! You are full of awesome!

Just so you all know, I am very addicted to Killzone 2's multiplayer. As much as I like it though, I do have quite a lot of issues with it. The fact you don't get access to all the classes in the beginning of the game, really causes some major balance issues in my opinion. A team full of higher ranked members, who have all the class abilities to choose from, can basically decimate a team with lower ranked individuals who have no class abilities. This obviously won't be a problem eventually, once everyone ranks up, but right now it causes me some headaches. Maybe I'm just too used to playing Team Fortress 2, where you can pick from every class from the get go. Anyways, that's my only major problem with the multiplayer so far. I have several smaller complaints, but nothing worth boring you with here.

Let's get to the recaps shall we ....

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!
