Hello fellow Dtoiders I will be filling in for ManChild today. I recently got my Link Figure and it's amazing, Figma makes my favorite posable toys and I'm so happy Nintendo is finally getting some proper figures made of their franchises, I already have the Samus, and plan on getting Pit, I even have a Layton Revoltech even though he's technically a Level 5 character. So close to being able to recreate Smash in figure form.

I finally got around to beating Resident Evil 5 today, and I'm a bit mixed. On one hand it's inferior to Resident Evil 4 in every way, it's not even a little scary, a lot of the boss fights are lame, and some levels dragged on. On the other it's a really good local co-op game. It's some of the most fun I ever had with a local co-op game. What sets this game apart from most other co-op games is that you have to constantly work together by trading ammo/supplies back and forth, saving your partner, and building strategies together such as one player becoming bait and the other sneaking up on the enemy. Most co-op games are really about playing the game about the same time and competing over who gets the higher score and more kill. this game is more about surviving together and cooperating which was really fun when it came together. If I had played this game Solo with the computer AI I probably would not have liked it very much. It's a shame so many people are saying that 6 wasn't very good, as I adore 4 and thought that 5 was some decent fun. I'm definitely going to have to check out Revelations on 3DS.

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.
