More from me:

New game season seems to be upon us. I've not touched any of them. In fact, Mega Man 9 may well be the last new game I buy this year. Its not that I don't want to play Fallout 3 or Saints Row 2, its that sixty dollars is a lot to pay for a video game. Think about all the things that money can buy. According to the news, this year we should all be worried about saving money. Then think about the used games industry and how I can purchase at least two maybe three of last years best games for that same price. At the very least, I plan on picking up The Evil Overlord and Lost Odyssey. Those two look good for 20 bucks. I might even pick up one Rainbow Six Vegas. I saw it for fifteen at blockbuster and considered it.

I just feel like I'm out of the loop. Everyone is in betas or playing these new games, I feel left out. Mega Man 9 and Castle Crashers feel more like my kind of games anyway. If not for their cheap price or old school gameplay. The only thing that bothers me is the digital distribution. I can't loan out Castle Crashers or Mega Man 9 to anyone.

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.
