Running waayyyy tired today. But y'all know what happened. It was E3 day one! Lots of good games (lots so many omghnnng) were shown, some were announced, and Sony checked all the boxes.

What are your guys' highlights for today? Disappointments? Predictions for tomorrow?


Short-ass CAPS with cheese.

* - The new Save State. Today, it's Fandango writing about Fear Effect, and hard choices. Great stuff!

* - TroyFullbuster and his buddy Matt have a thorough breakdown of all the things they want in the next Smash Bros. game.

S - More censorship chronicles with OpiumHerz. This one is about Sniper Elite V2 (again) and pre-emptive censoring.

P - A new episode of the Shattered Podcast. Chicken.

A - TheManchild has some thoughts on game reviews, and why many react the way they do to them.

P - A new episode of the GoForRainbow Podcast. Apparently, Corey is not an alcoholic. I have my doubts :P



F - Instead of Dtoid PS3 FNF. they're changing their name to PS FNF. So all Sony Friday Night Fights will fall under the banner. Maybe the Xbox guys should do the same?

V - Mikki Saturn has some video predictions for E3. Hopefully you saw these before the conferences. There's a Nintendo one, at least. Still time!

T - JanicedCollins has some good tips on buying mobile games while minimizing disappointment.

T - shaxam1029 talks greed, risk & reward, and Isaac.

V - Mikki Saturn continues looking back at Mario's 2D platforming fun with Super Mario World.

T - Osga21 has some thoughts about the Microsoft E3 reveals.

V - The sign of a good game: you just keep playing even though you're dying. Watch BobofManframe die like a billion times in Rayman Legends, and say angry things.



L - Of all the things Sony did right today, they really didn't seem to help out the Vita enough. For ninjapresident, it was still enough.

R - nabokovfan87 is here to tell you the good word. Now that you know the word, does a gaming PC finally interest you?



This conference was quite a ride. In Failtoid just because it was blank space.

Okay; gotta go get ready for Smash Bros. and a bunch of other games. So relieved that games are actually the focus this year :)
*dances*

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.
