Howdy ho folks. How's all you sexy people on this fine Monday morning? Still sexy? Awww yeah. Guess how many times I get to say AssCreed for this? Like 4. Pretty rad huh? I don't have much to talk about this week. I'm tired (as I always am, it seems). Set the clocks back last night and then my son STILL got up at 6. No sleep for ole Phil this weekend. Thank god for cocaine.



I've been playing a lot of RE: 5 lately. Sheva hasn't pissed me off too bad, compared to two years ago, when her AI made me walk away from that game. I did put it on easy though, because I didn't want to get so mad, I punched my dick off. I hate when I do that. Had an awesome Always Sunny marathon last night too. That was cool.... alright, this is boring. On with the CAPS!

*- Nekobun busts out a fantastic write up on Lilly Caul from Telltale's Walking Dead.
*- Wquach gets sauced for awesome costume ingenuity, done with budget constraints. Vote for this one on Amazon's contest page.

F- Oh Scott, thanks for the contribution. SHAAAAAMOOOONNNAH! But it ain't much, in fact it's jack squat. C'mon man.


So yeppers. Those are your caps. I hope you folks enjoyed what little I did. Enter my contest. Stay awesome. Love you all. Except you. YOU FUCKING KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Changes

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.
