So I understand there's some kind of big board game and toy show going on in Los Angeles, is that right? Bringing back classics, I guess. I heard a lot about Triple-E and it seems like everyone's talking about K'Nex for some reason.

I am now the 300,000th person to make that K'nex joke. I think that means I win a pet monkey or something.

Anyway. Seems like everyone has an opinion about E3 so far. You know what they say about opinions, right? Yeah. To cheer myself up, I'm gonna link some absolutely great videos I found by following Grumpy Turtle on Twitter. Anonymouse and I both agree this first one is pretty much the best thing ever.




*-Dtoid Community discusses wasn't dead, it was only... napping. ErbilT is your new host for the welcome return of this feature.
*-S0lesurviv0r found a video that demonstrates a day in the life of everyone's favorite oiled-up red dude.
*- BulletMagnet's new series Magnet School kicks off by examining "ochige," or falling block Puyo-style games.
*-I like being able to highlight buried treasure on a high-volume day like today. BrainCandy wrote a great series of tips for anyone trying to get an art job in gaming.
*-Dexter's just brilliant and that's all there is to it. I am proud to have traded Pokemon with this man.

I-And welcome to Phallus41, who claims to have massive strength.

C-I appreciate the theme of not judging a book by its cover, but this could use a little more fleshing out.
C-This was almost great, but it would have benefited tremendously from some pruning.

F- Copy
F-and
F-paste.
F-So unprofessional.
F-I don't know where this guy came from, but he's been posting the same damn comment in every thread all day and I'm tired of it.
F-Limericks must follow a set of rules to qualify as such. Chief among these are a triad of rhyming verses in the first, second, and fifth lines, and a pair of shorter verses with a different rhyme in the third and fourth lines. Limericks are generally written with a humorous bent, and have a reputation for bawdiness.
F-You again?

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.
