Today, as you ponder, "How do I trick this person?," just remember that there is a line to be crossed. April Fool's can go terribly wrong in several ways, and you don't want to be remembered as that douchebag who ruined it for everyone. Please exercise good judgement and common sense. Remember that idiom: It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye. I'm still so sorry, Tyler.
April Fool's! Go fucking crazy.

Ahem. Hey; at least we get some cool stuff out of this holiday, right? Like Sega's Rappy Bird, or Square Enix putting Garrett in Final Fantasy. Well...that's not great. But you get the idea.

No CAPS today. April Fool's


* - Arsenic13 pleads his case for cock. He thinks male nudity should be more abundant, and nudity in general shouldn't be so taboo in certain media.

* - Char Aznable dips into the Dtoid well of memories and pulls out The GHosts' amazing Destructoid Cards. These were so cool. Maybe...it's time for a new deck?

P - TheDustinThomas' podcast is looking for more questions. This week's episode is about wrestling videogames! Comments, questions, and declarations about what wrestling game is best are welcome.



C - MeanderBot is nearing the end of his process and looking for input on the final Printoid image. Please take a minute to throw in your 2 cents!

F - Scield decides to post the Xbox Friday Night Fights post way early, to give non-forum people a chance to actually get organized before Friday night. Thinking about hosting something on Friday? Well, you've got plenty of time to ponder.

T - PopetheRevXXVIII has some thoughts about Kingdom Hearts, and Street Fighter. What's this BS about frame drops on the PS3 version of SSFIV AE 2012?

T - Blue Odeyssey remembers the good times. Thanks to Final Fantasy X, and X2, he can relive some of those great times. Do you feel the same way about how the landscape has changed?

R - Spazzh20 reviews the original Kingdom Hearts, and it almost sounds like he likes it or something.

R - Lord Spencer's review of the SNES game The Adventures of Batman & Robin.

T - junespirit loves Disney and doesn't care who knows!

A - RenegadePanda totally outclasses the 'official' version of the MGS: Ground Zeroes PS4, with his own design.



F - Terry 309 honors Cybele with this review of Valkyrie Profile 2.

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.
