How to Kiss a Woman, by James Tiberius Kirk

Always nice to start off Mondays with a little misogyny, he said sarcastically. Maybe that's why they moved House to Mondays last season. Anyway.

I'd intended to do the YTMND thing on the first Monday of every month, but as you no doubt recall, my body became the home to all disease over the last couple of weeks. I'm behind on posting my PAX pictures and stuff too... time just keeps slippin'. At least I can post the YTMNDs tonight and pick it up again in a couple of weeks. So with no further ado:

Super Tim Allen Land
DOS games were the best.
Vader plays Rock Band.
And he's a busy guy, also freelancing for Team Rocket.
The Blue Bomber has his work cut out for him.
Capcom's looking to branch out. Would this work?
The signs were all there.
Ultros' garden.
Super Pizza Kart
D'awwwww.
How is it that there's STILL no Wii version of Mario Paint?
Little Mac vs. Blanka.

And of course a few Random Man Now Dogs.

Moe in the lawn.
It's time for Han to pay.
An Aardvark's preferred prey is Brent Spiner.
Plutonium!


*-TSuereth brings to light something that you're probably not familiar with, but should be. Please take a few minutes to read this; it's important.
*-Tofa Waifu got everyone in the Monday spirit.
*-The DRMaster knows age ain't nuthin' but a number. And a stereotype.
*-MegaStryke's Musing looks at a couple of spinoffs starring the amped-up amphibians known collectively as the Battletoads.


A-The Night Knight compares a tale of two Zeldas in this article.
A-Crunshii took some issue with the Sony article Jim wrote over the weekend.
A-RandomBullseye took a look back at one of Atlus' early NES outings. Oddly, the words "Astonishingly difficult" don't appear until about 1/3 of the way down the page.
A-TewDee wrote about a game that has even less than 2 dimensions... an ancient grandparent of MMOs known as a Mult-User Dungeon, or MUD.
M-I might argue that Knights of the Old Republic isn't a Forgotten game per se, but I can't argue that this blog by Bluexy isn't great.
M-Pedrovay2003's Musing for this month looks at Sega's answer to Mario Kart 64-- Sonic R.
S-NihonTiger90's What'd You Get? feature apparently had some trouble with the Grammarator.
S- Tanukitsune played through Redneck Rampage and a few other, probably better games.
P-Backwards Compatible 26 is now available.
P-Drunkcast records tonight.
P-Refused Classification has good reason to be pissed off this week. Expect some rage on the topic of L4D2.


C-Nilcam's King of Dtoiders week 2 review features videos of several of the matches. Good stuff.


E-Vexed Alex would like some help with a community roundtable discussion on older games. Would you kindly help?
S-Ben Perlee IS Apollo Justice.
R-360s seem to know when big releases are coming and time their RRODs accordingly. Our condolences, ThreexPennyco.
R-Superhobo's 360 died a while back, but he's found a temporary solution that doesn't involve towels.


N-Zombie Panic in Wonderland. Got your attention? Thought so. Now have a look at this concept art brought to you by Infinity's End. Snow White alone is worth the price of admission.
R-Subenu reviewed the Wii game Disaster: Day of Crisis. Does this have anything to do with the old PS2 series that started with Zettai Zetsumei Toshi?
T-Armando would like to know what class in Borderlands people are looking at. I think I'll go with an Amazon first. Or maybe a Necromancer.
T-Suitcoat Avenger's been biz-zay but he took some time to update us on his various thoughts.
T-Sanious is having a gamer lull, where he just doesn't want to play. Ever had one of those?
T-Monodi's taken stock of his life and is thinking about the future, and how this all relates to gaming.
D-Doctor Insidious gives us an inside look at assembly programming.


A-Suitcoat got his groove back. I like purple.
M-It's Mashup Monday as Casual Weaponry takes over dTunes for the week.


L-Crunshii heard a rumor about the Wii 2. But you should check this one out for the Left 4 Dead/Teletubbies mashup video.
R-Not sure if this is a complaint or bragging.
V-Some video from the most recent Friday Night Fights.
R- This article has been peer reviewed. Well, that's comforting.
V-Danger, Chaos and Exploding Babies.
C-Besides linking to a Kotaku rumor story, (already a no-no) the blog part of this didn't really say much.


Another week with no outrageous fail! For you, I share my watermelon smoothie.

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.
