WHAT UP PARTY PEEPS? How is everyone doing?



How about now? So did you folks buy Binary Domain from Green Man Gaming for $5? You should. That is one the best TPS I've ever played and I happily grabbed it for such a cheap price. I even threw Alpha Protocol on there (shut up, I LOVE that cheesy spy game) and escaped only $7.24 poorer (coupon and credit, otherwise it would've been 9.74). Not bad.

I'm covering for Smurfee and doing my own weekend stuff tonight, so it'll be brief. I have robots to shoot after all. Before we start though, I want you all to know something. I'm going to edit your comments to make you look stupid and I'm going to delete EVERYTHING! Why? Because F*CK YO COUCH! That's why b*tches. I'll let the other five mods deal with spam. I'm all about the abuse of power. This is going to be so awesome. For me.

Well, other than that, check out the topsauce section and vote up Dtoider Dustin Thomas in that wrestling thing. DO IT! Help one of us live their dream! WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS? GO VOTE FOR HIM AND THEN BUY BINARY DOMAIN BEFORE THE SALE ENDS!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Crowdfunded

It feels like it's been a decade since we've seen the rise of the crowdfunded game. I'm always surprised when I remind myself that crowdfunding has been a thing long before the first crowdfunded video game, but nowadays a crowdfunded game seems like a dime a dozen.

Of course such a phrase is an incredible disservice to some of the great games that have come out thanks to websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Games like FTL, Shovel Knight, and even Undertale are around thanks to crowdfunding; thanks to people gathering around and literally putting their money where their mouth is, a game they want gets funded and inevitably the greater landscape of gaming benefits from it. Most of the time the landscape gets to benefit from it anyways.

Don't worry though, this month's bloggers wanted prompt isn't an exploratory thesis on the effects of crowdfunding on video game development. We just want you to talk about your favorite games, as long as they were crowdfunded. This topic can be simultaneously broad and narrow, because you can talk about whatever game you want, however you want, as long as it was crowdfunded.
For me, FTL is the original crowdfunded game, and it was great. It was somehow minimalist and incredibly detailed at the same time, and it was all done because a man wanted to do it, but needed the money, and thousands of other people wanted to see where his idea would go. Shovel Knight to me feels like this natural evolution of the classic 8-bit gaming of yore without also throwing myself back to a time when gaming was honestly comparatively archaic. And everyone's talked to death about Undertale, so we all know where I'd go with that.

To participate in this month's bloggers wanted, just start a blog! Oh, and title it "Crowdfunded: [your blog title here]." I bet this month is going to be pretty diverse, since it's basically writing about your favorite crowdfunded game. So I hope to hear about some good games revisited or amazing games no one has heard about.

Remember: Persona 5 was not crowdfunded, but excuse me as I plow through it.
