Hey all.

I was going to write something great here (Riiight, suuure I was) but then I ended up talking to Megastryke on Facebook for an hour. So I think I'll take a page out of SilverDragon's book and just start things off with a couple awesome pictures of a squid.



This thing's called a Vampire Squid. Does that rule, or what? Images came from here.


*-Keep a shot glass full of eye bleach handy for Handy's new feature, Fanart Flops. (NSFW)
*-Help Elsa celebrate her 250th conversion of a thinking, feeling human into so much fender meat.
*-LK404 has some great tips on how to make the most out of your gaming budget.
*-Tubatic's one of the biggest Mega Man fans around, and his predictions for the upcoming Mega Man Universe have me getting excited.


A-Trioptical thinks a recent announcement in M.A.G. is the gaming equivalent of chocolate-covered-bacon-on-a-stick.
A-Enkido and Bluth's Banana Stand have been duking it out in the C blogs regarding how pretend violence and real violence are related. Interesting stuff, but Beyamor's right about the teeny tiny monkey brains.
S- Magnet School's "electives" course causes Elsa to get all alliterative.
M-SAMA1984's Musing looks at the idea of taking a character and all their personality traits from one game to another.
P-Podsumaki recorded episode 9 tonight, all about MORTAAAAL KOMMMBAAAAT!


W-Beyamor's contest post says that in a way, everyone is a winner! But in another, more accurate way, Stevil is the winner.


S-DtoidSF had a great time over the weekend, attending the Final Fantasy concert called Distant Worlds.
B- Happy belated Birthday, Metallion! And thanks for the Apple Pie recipe.


T-LoopyChew has some concerns about the upcoming Power Gig: Rise of the Six String.
T-Though it's months from release, Ninjasnake thinks people are being too hard on BulletStorm.


A-Corduroy Turtle's girlfriend added some awesome artwork to his game-related limericks.
F-Gyrael wrote a beautiful blog about what cinema means to him.
S-BenelliM4 demonstrates a possible reason why Topher used to use the term "Yard Sale" when something was awesome.


C-This isn't formatted very well, and the content gives off a strong whiff of troll. Watch your ass.
C-I'll give ya a pass since the forums are down, but this would really be more appropriate over there.
C-Same deal. I hope the forums come back soon.


F-It's a great song, but it's not a blog.


-(Qalamari)

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.
