So I'm going to try and get to bed super-early tonight. Why? Tomorrow is, quite possibly, the biggest gaming day of the year. Two of my most hotly anticipated titles will be release simultaneously, filling me with more gaming pleasure than I can probably stand. First up is Shank, which was nicely reviewed on the front page by one Nick Chester. Ever since I witnessed it in all its cartoony glory at PAX Prime last year, I've waited not-so-patiently to try out the whole shebang. Alongside that is Scott Pilgrim: The Game. As a massive fan of the comics and movie (the movie's better *audience gasps*), this game is like a fucking dream project to see in motion. Both games are frantic, gorgeous, top-notch brawlers, and both will take my attention away from any PAX planning and real-world activities for at least 24 hours. Anyone else looking forward to possibly the two greatest games of the year tomorrow?

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!
