Nothing to say tonight. Too many games to play. Went overboard at the Steam Sale. Not enough time. Games to play. Can't stop. Way behind. Big backlog. Gotta play. Stressing out. Drowning in games. Never, ever thought I'd have this problem, growing up. More games than time. Never happened before. Time is precious. Let's get this done.




*-Wry Guy's Nostaljourney Podcast is something I'm excited about. Maybe you will be too, after you read this.
*-Been wondering how exactly 3D will be implemented in the PS3 and 3DS? Golden Avenger puts his optics training to work explaining it for us.
*-It's Phys. Ed. time at Magnet School, where BulletMagnet looks at yet another batch of head-to-head block-droppers.


A-JoeyCastro's opinion piece on Playstation Plus raises some good points. Unless something drastic changes, I don't think it's something I'm interested in.
A-Hkun wonders what it takes to introduce a non-gamer to our favored pastime. The first comment is an excellent place to start.
A- MKSKILLZ16 shared a thought about the disconnect with immersion something as simple as a pause menu can create.

M-3uho's Musing lets us know what it's like to be a gamer without a console, deep in the southern hemisphere.
M-Mollygos' Musing makes mention of monsters meandering merrily, murdering mooks and majorly messing up the metropolis.

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.
