Due to a slight change late in the day, I'm cappin Sunday's CAPS as well as Monday's.
Hey what up, community?!? YEAH! That's what I like to hear! Are you guys ready for tomorrow's Xbox reveal? If comments and social media are to be believed, y'all are SUPER EXCITED mildly interested. Sounds about right.

With these console reveals you can be sure of a few things:
-Bingo cards/drinking games
-Complaining
-Stupid stuff/people
Boom.

I guess I have a couple of predictions of my own for this:
1) They won't show any Playstation games.
2) Nice fingernails.
3) A horrible lack of Daft Punk.
4) Batman
5) Sandwiches (not for us, obviously)
6) Someone will slip on something
7) Buzzwords
8) Nice fingernails
9) A controller without a D-pad.
10) They won't show any Nintendo games.
11) Anti-grav skateboards
12) Bad shirt/tie combos
13) Sexism
14) Need For Speed
15) Fifa 14
16) Pretty much EA
17) Nyarlathotep
18) Gifs
19) Repeated news posts
20) A fist bump

Okay I love you buh-bye

A - Ronin4life thinks there is a double standard when it comes to judging Nintendo consoles versus judging companies' machines

A - The Salty Hippo was disappointed with Max Payne 3, and wishes they would have actually explored Max.

P - LowerTierPodcast episode 10: It's Squirting Out. They're giving away Orion: Dino Horde and Cart Life, and talking about 7th Heaven. Does it get better than that?

D - POstudios gives us an update on episode 3 of Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller. It's detective time.

T - Asterion doesn't like that buzzword, "Mature." Can't blame him. I do, however, think he's wrong about MGSV.

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.
