I made the mistake of reading Holmes review of Guacamelee and watching the Giantbomb guys Quicklook of it. Now all I want to do is sit around, drink cervezas, and sulk that it isn't on the 360.

I ain't even joking, I'm going to make so much Mexican food today.

I've felt like poo for the past few days, so enjoy these pictures of Mexican related stuff in lieu of actual written content.


-I actually do make legit tacos.









* - Best review of Infinite I've read.

* - Shuuda makes some good points about RPGs and pacing. I can't be the only one who finds it jarring when a dragon is willing to wait while I rescue kittens out of a tree and scrape the hills for minerals to blacksmith up a sword.

* - Dark Souls concept runs are the best.

A - Square is out of it's mind. The paper thin obvious attempt to throw Enix under the bus for Square-Japan's failures is sickening.

A - TheKodu talks about indy development.

P - You better believe I'm gonna get down with some tacos, Tuesday or no.

A - Some games are easier than others to lose yourself in. When a game like Tomb Raider tries to make serious points about humanity and life, only to have you fall 30 into concrete in the next scene to no ill effect, it gets hard to take it seriously.

A - Hakael is very hopeful that Ouya and other open platforms will blow the lid off the established games market. But I just don't see it.



-Not mine, but I did make some crazy dios los muertos cookies this Halloween.
I - Shibboleth introduces himself with a blog about the Megaman game that never was.

R - Nilcam takes a last look at Skyward Sword.

T - Woah! There are still people out there playing SWTOR and its still being updated!? N7 will take those interested on a tour of the new content and changes.

R - Cmstrott weights in with a Bioshock Infinite review. I don't want to blow the surprise, but he might have liked it a little bit.



-Why did I never learn to play El Fuerte!?
? - This is video game related because of reasons I'm sure.

R - Notorum feels like some of the hysteria about EA has gone overboard.

R - PlayBoyMan has a very egalitarian mission statement for his future games.

S - Kickstarter ghetto.


-Wrenchfarm

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.
