Probably not going to buy any of the new games in the next three months, until next year. Not to say I won't play them. Renting games is always the best solution. Unless its a game from two years ago that you can buy at the same price as the rental. Then it is rental rape.


*- MrSadistic writes about a guy proposing to his girlfriend using little big planet. They throw up a little in their mouth. I threw up a little when the front page featured the same story later in the day. That always makes me laugh.
*- Pornstars play video games. This is a news video.
*-An arcade cabinet built from scratch.
*- 10 Things Unstoppable Juggernaut learned this week co opted from aborto cause they his style.

?- pendelton21 found a strange website. Commenters say its from Silent Hill 2.
?- Darkanubispwner writes " I like gaming but too much." They have put those ringtone things and sound effects from video games on their phones.


S- A shortblog that links to another article about controllers. Controller page isn't so bad, actually some interesting stuff. I know how much you guys rush to see failure, so maybe check this out. They even show off the Colecovision's controller.

Just to say it again, rental rape. If someone can find a worse video game related picture than Jackie Chun Li, I'm open to suggestions to change it. Also its still really big for some reason.

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.
