Gee, I sure do hope everyone wants to hear more about those stompy Titanfall robots!

What? No? Oh, okay... but that's all I've been playing.

Well what else do I have going on? The other day I made a Tumblr account where you can see more stompy robot and videogame related things. You might notice I have an About Me and Portfolio section on there like a big boy real writer. I'm trying to up my game and start writing "for real" so I needed a one-stop shop where people could check out some of my stuff. So yeah, that's a thing.

I've had Jazzpunk staring at me from my Steam library for the past two (three?) weeks. My brother looked me in the eyes the other day and told me I was a "soul-criminal" for not playing it yet.  Hopefully I'll be able to crave out some time for some surreal espionage action over the next few days.

Mercenary Kings is finally out in full-actual-for-real-this-time release and I really want to play that too! If not for the oldschool Metal Slug action, than for the charming pre-release trailer. I have a special place in my heart for soft voices singing about terrible things.






- No topsauce today *sadface*
P - 1st Spooge Office reporting for holodeck clean up duty.

P - The Videogame Rescue podcast/youtube group are talking about Rifts, and books, and faces this week.

R - Gather your Einherjar for this review of Valkyrie Profile 2. I was a HUGE fan of VP1 and it makes me a little sad to have missed the sequel. 

M - DRUM SOLO! DRUM SOLO! DRUM SOLO! Er,- sorry. I watched the new Muppets movie last weekend and I'm still in kind of an Animal mindspace.

A - An advance look at the Drakengard 3 guide book. It will have pictures of those crazy flower face girls just chilling in a cafe apparently, which actually kind of makes me want to check it out. Can we just get a game about girls with flowers coming out of their eye sockets chatting with each other?

? - Your glorious leader and mine, Zombie Orwell, is back. Soak in his mind thoughts, feel his disappointment at the lack of Eminem loin chops in his life, and maybe buy his "transcriptionist's" book.

C - Looks like Joe did a lot of leg work in his Fancypants to put together this series of interviews. Which makes it all the more of a shame that he didn't include any info about who he's interviewing, why it's interesting, or even what he wanted to accomplish. This post really needs a blog.

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.
