Here's hoping Keith makes it into L4D2 as DLC. Or maybe he's already in as a tank.

Nice job today guys, lots of good stuff and very little bad. Let's get to it.


*-It may not be officially official, but GamesAreArt and co. are keeping the Monthly Musings alive in some form. And that's pretty awesome.
*-Stevil's Gamer Obscura series took a look at a sunsoft survival horror game called The Note. Nice use of post-its; I do love a good meta joke.
*-AwesomeExMachina took a detailed look at the good and the bad of side quests.
*-BulletMagnet's Forgotten Essentials series takes on the puzzle genre, indirectly laying out why PopCap has more money than God right about now.
*-It's still in the early stages, but Skribble's working on something that promises to be pretty cool. Or hot. Like dragon's breath.
*- According to his local fundies, Clown Baby is going to hell. Yeah, well, down the hatch.


A-Beyamor's list of why the Pokemon world is superior to our own is hard to disagree with.
A-It's a Gameboy themed article day, as Mike Wuest explains his love of Link's Awakening.
A- There goes the Gameboy theme. But this piece by Time and a Half puts forth some interesting ideas about game development.
P-Podsumaki appears to be gaining steam, especially with the recent release of SSF4. Episode 5 recorded tonight.


C-MrRandyDixon needs a new blog header, and has offered a bounty in the form of a free PS3 game. Get cracking.


E- E3's coming up and Destructoid's AV club could use some help if you've got the chops.
I-Greetings to Justin, who apparently likes Friends and cowboy hats.


N-Covah beat the front page with this video confirmation that LittleBigPlanet 2 is a real thing.
N-Looks like they're making another True Crime game, this time set in... Hong Kong? Isn't half the point of those games seeing the landscape in a 1:1 scale? How many of you have ever been to Hong Kong?
T-Snoogans775 had some thoughts about his experiences with a malfunctioning PS3 and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories.
T- CrimeMinister posted a thought experiment involving the Guinness list of the best game series. It kind of went off the rails.
T-Ausgamer might just be the original N64 kid.
T-Wedgewu defends her right to play so-called "casual" games.
R-Metroid Fetus reviewed and recommended an android/iPhone game called Drop7.


A-Hi, I'm Daisy! KodyKoala made a custom statue in tribute to Luigi's sweetie.
A-Faith continues pumpin' the Perler, and HOLY CRAP NEX SIGHTING!


V-ChrisBradshaw posted up a video of a nice-looking Mario 3 Rom hack. If I weren't busy doing the recaps, I'd probably be playing it right now.
V-HybridRain introduced himself by posting this fan tribute to the Assassin's Creed series that he played a part in.
C-This topic has been done to death, the corpse flung onto a highway and dragged for miles by a passing semi truck.
C-I'm not seeing the point of this blog, and the community jab in the comments didn't help.


No fail, but those last two were close. Watch your ass.

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.
