This is gonna be another quick one, but they can't all be winners or whatevs. I would like to mention a thing I just read about, though. Apparently, DC's show, Gotham, is not quite what some people thought. It's about "all of the classic Batman characters" and how they came to be what we know them as. Think Smallville in a sense.
I'm tired, so I can't tell if that's a great idea or a terrible one. All I know is it's on FOX, so it won't make it to season 2.

Have some pics and CAPS & stuff.



* - RenaudB90 settles this business of the Wii U being hard to develop for, AND he has proof to back it up. Nintendo conspiracies ahoy.

* - Part 2 of Dreamweaver's fascinating list of favorite videogame Doujinshis. Turns out Demon's Souls manga porn is just as bleak as the rest of the universe.

P - Scary Granules is back! The scintilatingly-titled Armoured Core Dildos is episode number twenty. Welcome back :)

A - TheDefenestrator is your go-to-guy when it comes to Warframe. He's got all the helpful tips to playing & understanding this game.



E - MeanderBot continues to share all his lovely photographs from PAX Prime 2013.

I - Say hello to new Dtoider and Texan: Psyforce! Great intro dude!

S - AlphaDeus is looking for some collaborative help on a huge music project of his: AD Infinitum. It's a doozy, so let him know if you're interested.

R - Terry 309 does a "current-gen" review for Warhammer 40k: Space Marine, despite it being last-gen. HMMMMMMM. Check out the review for what is regarded as something of an underrated gem.

T - Better On Holiday gets into his first week of 2014, with the goal to clear his backlog and not buy ANY games all year. See how he's doing so far.

R - JordanLloyd video reviews Gunman Clive, a great little game for 2 bucks.

R - Kooram reviews Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. A pirate's life for me, gents.

T - Om Nom On Souls has a quick but poignant blog, on videogame growth and the use of the Anthology format.



V - The Arm Length Interviews guys get drunk and unbox old technology. I smell a hit.

F - JordanLloyd still hasn't written, like, anything. Just another video plopped down here. I'm not even sure what Dragonball Chi is.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Changes

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.
