So I spent 8 hours today at a PC LAN party playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare with 7 other guys. It was freaking awesome. Me and this same group of close friends get together about once every 2 months to do this, and it's always lots of fun. There's nothing better then eating junk food, drinking beer, and blowing your friends away with shot guns and MK-47s while yelling obscenities at them. A great time was had by all.

I also want to say I had a great time last night with my fellow dtoiders playing Gears of War 2 for FNF. To be honest I suck at the multiplayer in that game, and typically get raped online when I try to play it. Because of this I usually don't enjoy myself when I play multiplayer, and hence don't go online much. I had an awesome time last night though playing with members of the Dtoid community though. It didn't matter that I sucked at the game, because everyone was having such a great time just screwing around and having fun.

Ok, now 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!
