Hey Everybody, I'm filling in for Silver Dragon's weekend caps. Hope you guys had a good weekend. I hid eggs with my family and we threw them at each other, cause you know that's what Jesus wanted.

So what games have I played since last time I recapped? I beat BioShock, I spent about 30 hours in Rapture cause I got almost everything. Thought the gameplay was very good, but I think the story was a little too in your face, and could have made better use of the underwater setting. I beat 3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure which was surprisingly amazing, the subtle 3D effects look so good. I beat Donkey Kong Country Returns which had some very creative level design. I 100% Skyward Sword, although I don't think the game is a perfect 10 I enjoyed most of it. My gripe with the game is it has too much fluff, the dozen fetch quest it forces you to do to progress the story just weren't fun, they were boring so I took a month break from the game. The sidequest however were really good, hence why I did all of them. In my opinion this game had some of the best boss fights in the series, specifically that golden 6 armed boss.They did a great job with the characters too. Peatrice in particular has become one of my favorite characters in the Zelda universe. Although I really liked it I understand why some people were disappointed by it.

Onto the caps, lots of good stuff. I'm happy these 10 things blogs are still booming.

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.
