Seems Left 4 Dead has been fixed somewhat. Actually was able to make it into a decent server on the first try, unlike Tuesday where we spent 45 minutes trying to get a decent server before giving up. I'm definitely liking the tweaks so far, although I haven't given versus a spin since the update.

Also, among other things I watched a monkey skating today!



*- Unangbangkay like to pay by himself... with others... Awesome writeup
*- MegaStryke reminises about playing video games with his dad. I love how Monthly Musings generally brings out such quality articles
*- Tehmtnlion continues his scary story


S- I'll call it a series at this point. Michiyoyoshiku plays Guilty Gear. Could use more in-depth impressions of the game
S- Latest dTunes, with a very upbeat selection. I like
S- A cool idea, GamingGoddess continues narrating her playthrough of Parasite Eve
S- Mikey draws sick fetishes on demand!


No contests once again, so enjoy this bonus video of bears actually playing hockey. I'm honestly not sure whether I should be amused or horrified, but I do know they need to pull that goalie. He's not even trying to stop anything!



D- Tubatic makes a call for feedback on cblog improvements
C- SurplusGamer sees the light on the benefits of renting games
F- Come out and play some more AMMO beta tomorrow night!
F- Call for a WipeoutHD FNF tourney tomorrow night. Be there!
C- TewDee organizes games he wants to finish/keep playing with his NEW KEYBOARD
I- Nice intro, and she made Daxelman go crazy. I'd say win-win
S- Pendelton21 give a general life/blogging update
E- LAN party recap, and too much energy drinks... I had a NOS once, and it gave me an irregular heartbeat for the rest of the evening...


N- Monster Hunter G news, and a special edition classic controller
N- Gemsi brings us the EU releases for the week
T- Jonathan Holmes wants to know if we think Dtoid is "anti-Wii"
N- Teta links to some Battlefront 3 footage that surprsingly isn't a RickRoll
T- BSD has Kraken-phobia, and also fails for not mentioning the FF1 Kraken...
T- Tubatic outlines why he plays his 360 more than his Wii
R- I'll refrain from calling this a series until #2 comes out. NihonTiger resurrects Bargain Bin Laden... sort of
T- Thoughs on the DS Rumble Pack- OMG THAT'S A SPACE INVADER SNOWBOARDING!!!
N- How the hell is Mario Kart DS on the best selling games of 2008 list? :S
T- Thefil doesn't think anybody else is looking forward to these games


A- A very nice SMB cake^H^H^ oil painting
F- Sorry, but that gunfight looked really stupid...


C- Don't post a teaser with a link elsewhere for the whole article. Only reason this isn't fail is because it might be a good read...
V- Eminem's L4D advice apparently, although I assume he wasn't talking about L4D when he said that
O- History lesson from LaxLuster. The JRPG joke put it over the top for me
R- Something about hand-egg in Rockband. Don't care much for pro sports myself, but it is a nice use of the character creator
L- A Mega64 video that actually made me laugh. Very well done commentary about 1UP/EGM
C- Covah worries about FF release dates, and for some reason mentions fanboys?


F- An oddly coherent "drunken" "clog" full of delicious hypocracy
F- Seriously? More Obama-mania? I just popped a pimple that was more interesting than this (spoiler: it's currently bleeding)
F-Mark Gormley is from Florida, not "Canada's smallest province" dummy... Not a bad song though, even if the video is pretty bad :p
S- LOLFace didn't look just a few blogs down. Slightly redeemed by Droobies failing at trolling
F- Two fail blogs in one day, both buy the same person and both about the same topic... Am I the only one who's sick of hearing about Obama?

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.
