I honestly can't believe that Starcraft 2 comes out in less than 24 hours. It's been an extremely long 12 year wait since the original Starcraft was released, but on Tuesday it will all be worth it. To say I have extremely high expectations for this game is truly an understatement.

I've spent the last 4 months playing the beta and loved every second of it. I would spend $60 on the multiplayer alone, and that's not even what I'm looking forward to the most. It's the single player that really has my interest peaked. After spending the last 2 months reading tons of Starcraft novels, I know the lore inside and out, and I really look forward to seeing where the story goes.

This is Blizzard we are talking about here people. They simply don't know how to make a bad game. Can you imagine what the industry would be like if every single company put as much time, love, dedication, and hard work into every game they made like Blizzard does. Sure, there would be a lot less games to play, but they would all be spectacular.

Suffice to say, when Tuesday gets here, the only place you'll find me for the next couple months is on Battle.net playing Starcraft 2. If you are interested in playing with me, let me know below in the comments and I'll add you to my SC2 friends list.

Now let's get to your regularly scheduled weekend Cblog recaps.

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.
