I'll be honest with you, Destructoid... My heart's not in it tonight. I've had a lousy week and the last 24 hours in particular have been a positive cavalcade of unpleasantness. Like any good robot however, I subscribe to the law of the future: You gotta do what you gotta do.



Let's get this over with, shall we? I'm looking forward to taking a shower, crawling into a fetal ball and whimpering for a few hours. My apologies in advance, this will most likely be scourged of the wit and charm I'd like to think I bring to these posts.


*-Genki Jam made me think of a Metal Gear/Shitty Robot Michael Bay Battle Movie crossover, which can never be undone.
*-Vitamin H's Musing looks at the survival horror genre... or does it? Truly, this game is its creators Crowning glory.
*-Megastryke for Editor. Who's with me?
*-Forums are back up! No more BRB.


P-Failcast has produced a podcast which they assure us is NOT about Gurren Lagann. Whatever that is.
S-Goodgamer77's Fake Game Friday was inspired by last week's episode of RFGO! It's a nice idea, I'm sure someone will steal it eventually.
S-Gemsi's EU release list looks a little more promising than the last couple'a weeks.
P-FSA has reached its tenth episode.



Nuthin'. Uh, let's see.

That work for ya? (Tweeted by The Fox Trot guy.)


S-The Toilet Duck takes issue with the WePC ads currently running on Dtoid.
C-Coonskin made some arrangements. CTZ failed at math.
I-Caelas Powdery Cheese Shadowfoot introduced himself. Welcome to Destructoid... I believe you may have overtaken Scary Womanizing Pig Mask in the longest avatar name competition.


N-Grasshopper Studios and XSeed may be parting ways.
N-...Which is Ok, because they confirmed Fragile for a North American release.
N-Which is apparently good news.
N-Flower, Sun and Rain went gold. Delicious copypasta. Rain dude, not Moon.
N- Free DLC is always nice, even better when it's good. In case you hadn't heard, "The Touch" is free for Guitar Hero RIGHT NOW.
T-inFAMOUS has some glitches, same as any other open world game. Aren't we used to this by now?
T-Square's new MMO is codenamed "Rapture." Insert Bioshock joke here.
T-Dragonzigg's E3 predictions.
T-Tubatic, surely you must be aware that John Excrement will be announced in the week leading up to E3.
F-Building a video game canon, week 2.
R-That guy with the long name from above is thinking about trying a new system for game reviews.
R-Haxan's "review" of Zelda: Majora's Mask gets into some serious detail. It's clear he loves the game. My favorite Zeldas have always been the nontraditional ones. MM is about as nontraditional as it gets.
T-Covah is grumpy at Sega's announcement of what amounts to Super Sonic Kart. Not for the reason you might expect, though.
V-Remember that Mega Man 2.5D game trailer that came out a few months ago? Apparently the project has progressed significantly. Capcom, hire Peter Sjostrand. It works for Valve.
T-Nilcam's ponderings pre-E3.
T-PC gaming is looking pretty decent this year.
$-Unreal Tournament 3 will be free on Steam this weekend, and available at a drastically reduced price point.
T-EvilSpants thinks it's a bit odd that the electric urban God carries what is very clearly a Nextel walkie-talkie.


M- Power Glove has an artist list (so far) for Guitar Hero 5.
F-Cowzilla reviewed Drag Me To Hell.
V-Mass Effect 2 dropped a trailer, Covah dropped a pantload.


V-Mr Glider posted a video about a Street Fight and a shrew.
L-Zero Punctuation's "review" of Duke Nukem Forever was spot on. If you haven't seen it yet, I suggest viewing it at your earliest convenience.
V-Something about Persona 3 and a video. What does AMV stand for?
R-Penn Jillette weighed in on the Japanese rape game controversy.
C-Spellcheck, grammar check, and please be aware of the format weirdness from Opera or whatever browser you're using.
V-Substance TV 9 is out.
C- More content, please. Stream of consciousness is fine as long as it doesn't cause the reader to lose theirs.
C-Maybe a picture or a video next time? I appreciate the sentiment, but 2 lines does not a blog post make.


F-This is the wrong way to introduce yourself. Not too late to hide this one.

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.
