Hey guys and girls, who's ready to be horribly depressed?!?


You may wonder why this video is heading the recaps tonight. Well, if you listened to the most recent episode of Podtoid, the usual suspects were discussing this Cracked.com article about soul-crushing TV series finales. Having experienced this for himself, one of our regulars took it upon himself to create something the Henson company will probably never forgive.


*-To save myself an ass-kicking by Char Aznable, this gets the top honors tonight. Good thing it's actually well written and worthy of the nod.
*-Clever title? Check. Well written article? Double Check. Topsauce? Checkmate.


A-This article on Killer 7 by Mooks introduces the titular 7. Sounds like something I should play.
P-Podsumaki is recording episode 4 this evening. Probably done by now, come to think of it.
P-S Pastic did an interview with Raymond Herrera of 3volution productions that you may want to check out if you're interested in games' audio.


C-Mark Oleski is giving away a beta code for StarCraft 2. But you don't want that. Not as much as I do.


Nothin'.

Once again, congratulations to Anthony and to Ms. Davis. I missed out on the lovefest last week, but this seemed appropriate.


N-DerrickH posted something newsworthy that might also be appropriate in our contest area. How's 10,000 Microsoft spacemoney sound?
T-With a new set of Pokemon games just over the horizon, NihonTiger90 wants to know, what do you think should be changed?
T-SocialNorms has been playing the Halo: Reach beta and shared some impressions.
T-JustKarol wonders how nostalgia figures in to the incessant lists of the BEST GAMES EVER.
R- Daniel Campbell posted a video review of thinly-veiled Cuba simulator Tropico 3.
R-Ramundi let you know what he thinks about the DS space combat title Infinite Space.
R-As well as the monster hunting title Monster Hunter Tri.


A- Faith and her perler beads fly in the face of Mr. Ebert's notion that nothing associated with gaming can be art.
M-Dread Pirate Rob.. uh, Stefan Turnbull gave dTunes a buccaneering theme today.
M-Stereotoid dumped a whole mess o' music on your sorry asses.


L-Jayce Diaz and friends put together a video parody of the opening to Resident Evil.
R-Bizzarre video from PDP Candace adding red glow to the blue.
V-I might have topsauced this if not for the godawful, ear-rape audio. Watch it on mute.



F-Competition or no, doing nothing other than stating your intent to write a blog later lands you at the bottom of our little list here.
F-Yes. Pelicans are weird. Great in Pokemon though, 'cause they can use Surf AND Fly.

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.
