Mario Kart is so much better than I had expected guys. If you haven't had a chance to see it in action yet you should really get on that because it is just absolutely gorgeous. They also fixed a lot of the balancing mechanics from the Wii one. The new stages and items are also great new additions, and the online works flawlessly and is a ton of fun. My one complaint so far? Where is Birdo? No Birdo in MK8 is a huge mistake Nintendo. 2015 year of Birdo!!

Speaking of Nintendo we are less than a week away from E3! I am pretty excited. Microsoft should have big announcements since they've already announced kinectless XB1 and all those Halo details. Sony needs games to keep up that PS4 hype train. And Nintendo, well they have a lot they need to do, Mario Kart seems to have helped a bit but they still need to move a lot more units.

Do you guys have any predictions? I'll make a few just for fun. Microsoft: some sort of Windows handheld gaming device with the Xbox brand (not likely I know but...), New Rare IP or a returning one, big system update for XB1, Titanfall 2, Battlefield 3 is an XB1/PC exclusive (I would hate that myself but just making a prediction)

Sony: New Crash Bandicoot, new Jak and Daxter, Last of Us 2, Infamous game for Vita, PLEASE SAY SOMETHING ABOUT LAST GUARDIAN, system UI overhaul, new gravity rush for PS4 ad Vita

Nintendo: Smash release date and a new character, pokemon ruby and sapphire info, new 3d metroid for wii u, gameboy camera on 3ds eshop, gamecube virtual console games, pokemon red and blue on eshop (THAT SAME DAY?!) Mother 3 localization or maybe a Mother double (triple?!) pack for 3DS, 3DS lite

I could go on but I'm mostly just making wild guesses. What would your ultimate e# announcement be?

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.
