I'm smashing the glass and grabbing the fire extinguisher. CAPS will be covered in soot and white goo. Enjoy!



* - Voltech WILL convince you that Devil Survivor 2 is brilliant. Also that Watch_Dogs is terrible.

A - RedHeadPeak brings us another lesson plan. This one compares the Mushrrom Kingdom to the reign of Henry VIII. You probably need to read it to understand that.

A - Part 2 of Zuckerhund's article about the hellhole we've all created that is called videogames. This part focuses on the actual trailers and PR.

A - Sabotender's delicious love of the Tales series.

A - Gray Time loves playing with himself, and applauds Bethesda for allowing it.

M - Caubex lays out his hopes & predictions for E3. Soon!!

A - SigriedLion makes the case for trying Persona 2, if you never have before.



D - StriderHoang shows some love to the bloggers and front-pagers with these Destructoid Trading cards.

D - We get an update on Magic Miguel from mascot1063.  Gamemaker ftw.

T - The Velour Fog has some QUESTIONS for Evolve. He's skeptical of the game thus far.

D - Zer0t0nin is entering the 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest! Here he outlines his ideas and overall plan. He plans on daily updates too.

T - kenshin89 thinks we should all be playing Go. How about it? Any Go players in our midst?

R - Gamingnerd15 reviews Child of Light.

R - TheKodu reviews Battle for Demon City.

R - Dookysharpgun posts his old review of Sleeping Dogs.

S - pedrovay2003 mods his Dualshock 4 with Xbox parts, that crazy sonofabitch.

L - Tonich knows exactly how a remake of FFVII would look today.

F - Artyom lists his favorite RPGs from the last couple years. But bad formatting, grammar, and a lack of info put this blog in the FAIL section. I'm sure you can do better.

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.
