Running short on time seems to be a recurring theme lately. Let's keep these CAPS above 55 MPH lest we all explode for vaguely-explained reasons.

So this past week, the Recappers all saw that the universe is against them, hence there not being a new Fapcast. Luckily, and completely unrelated in any way, I bought Miami Hotline on sale, so I had something to do. That game is quite something. I am really digging the vibe of the entire thing. The atmosphere created by the simple visuals, colors, and music, mixed with quick, gruesome murder is nothing short of beautiful. But the game does not get along with my PC. So it's been short bursts for me. It's a horrible tease, because I have a feeling I could and would finish that game in one glorious, bloody session. At least I can mainline the soundtrack like a true fiend.

The Hotline Miami OST goes with...anything I guess. Including wrapping presents and baking and drinking. Topical!

Speaking of topical, cream. Speaking of cream, whipped. Speaking of whipped, cream. Shit...loop. Oh well. It almost went somewhere.

CAPPY HOLIDAYS
Also, be on the lookout for end of the year CAPS by the...end of the year.


* - kona has a really good piece regarding the "Gamers" and "Players." It's a divide many of us probably feel, but it's hard to put into words without sounding like a dick. Good job, kona.

* - Where are you? Why are you reading this? Do enjoy hurting people? Joe Fancypants certainly does. Answer the call.

* - Cheesy erections, space people, and the term Dtoidians. It's GlowBear's gaming moment(ish) of 2012!

* - Secret Women’s Business: Labiplasty Surgery

S - Snealiv has a very unfortunate look...back...at Super Monday Night Combat. Maybe these guys shouldn't have abondoned XBLA.

A - I should have figured the Jimquisition was partially responsible for this topic. burningsoup also has some thoughts on dumbing down, easy mode, and options.









T - Little Inferno will probably make you think, but perhaps you should just burn all the things.

T - Esteban Sky Cuevas has played some stuff over the last few weeks, and has some quick thoughts on them stuffs.

T - Noisetank41 got into Hotline Miami as well, as felt compelled to share some thoughts about it.

T - Lenigod's first recommended game of 2012: Kerbal Space Program."Incredibly low barrier of entry, with a seemingly endless skill roof." Well, there ya go! Fits pretty well with the discussed topic of today.





C - hardcoregamer123 is new, so try and be -somewhat- gentle. He could use some pointers.

L - TripleZer0 has a pretty funny way to help you through the 5 stages of backlog grief.

F - Looks like the evening will end with some hot spam.

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.
