It's hotter than the devil's armpit, I have a summer cold, and part of my job is to drive up and down a mountain every night, with all the accompanying changes in pressure. Y'know how a bottle of detergent or shampoo acts when you drive up about 3000 feet of elevation? That is what the mucous in my head holes is doing, even hours after descending to my normal pressure and elevation. And with that lovely mental image, let's talk about cake.


*-You may have seen pictures of this Mario cake making the rounds on Twitter or other blogs, but did you know it was for one of our own? Happy birthday, Sargonas!
*-Moment by moment, Derek Yu steals Beyamor's life away. What a jerk.
*- Full Metal Alchemist + Bit Transmission = the greatest mashup you're gonna see today.
*-Mistic made an ordinary, everyday trip to Singapore AMAZING by adding a little Dtoid. It could work for you, too!
*-RandomBullseye's Musing for the month is an epic in nine parts. Expect to see this promoted soon.


A-Norm9 writes in defense of the much-maligned loading screen.
S- Puzzle month in Magnet School continues. BulletMagnet's gonna punch you in the face if you don't pay attention.
P-Did you know you can win games by listening to Podsumaki? Well, now you do.


E-Gyrael's entry into SenorDoucheoisie's contest. Cool story, bro.


E-Less than two months until the DtoidMidwest NARP.


R-JC83 reviewed the "Overlord" DLC for Mass Effect 2.
R-Wasphone reviewed Call of Cthulu: Dark Corners of the Earth. Might be worth $10 during the Steam sale.
R-Bans is testing out the Onlive Service, and here's what he thinks so far.
$-Pizzadude gives the lowdown on some free iPhone games.


S-SteezyXL chronicled his recent purchases and his murder of a poor, innocent brown cardboard box.


V-Jayyblackheart talked bigger than he could deliver. He's man enough to own up to it, though.
R-The word of the day is "Random." LawofThermalDynamics vents some Apple-flavored bile from his spleen.
C-You know why this could be better? 'Cause you hated on Kirby's Epic Yarn, that's why. Have fun torching orphanages and eating puppy brains, or whatever it is you people without souls do.


F-"This is going to be another one of those articles." Well, thanks for the warning.

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.
