I've finally been enjoying all the splendors of the new generation. I'm loving the PS4. While so many think that the launch lineup is nothing special, I find it just about perfect. Here's why.



Resogun. I'm obsessed. I've already clocked more hours into this games then my other games combined. It's old school and addicting to look to look at. The leaderboards, the trophies, the upped difficulty all has me coming back for more. I won't bore you with this any longer because it will all just be gushing over the gorgeous game.



Killzone: The singleplayer is good enough for a launch game. The visuals are stunning, which is exactly why I bought it, much like I did Killzone 2. Thought the glory of this game is how refreshing the multiplayer is. The fact that you get every gun from the start amazes me. I can't remember the last time I played a shooter online and didn't get owned simply because everyone has better equipment than me. Plus, it's loads of fun.



NKA2K14: This game looks amazing and much like the ones before it, is fun as hell to play on the couch with some friends and a few beers. This isn't a game I'll play much at all by myself, but with the graphics and gameplay it makes for a perfect local multiplayer session.

I never really expect much from a launch, but these titles have exceeded my expectations. Sure, there's gonna be a drought for a bit, but these will tide me over just fine.



* - This might be the best Comictoid to date.

* - A look back in time at the Nintendo Power Guide to Final Fantasy. A great read, Savestatey

* - Benny tells us of 5 Animal Simulators that Must be Made. This Must Be Read.



A - Some interesting numbers for those wondering how the console launch games did.

A - Huh, the Assasins Creed app looks pretty interesting. A good read for anyone curious about it.

A - Plumby wants to know why there's no GBA games on virtual console. Nintendo, y u do dis???

S - Stridey's history of Pokemon's Metagame continues. Interesting to think that Blacl/White may be broken.







I - A fine premier blog about the SteamBox. Everyone greet the man... just do it.



$ - Gazy. Such strength. Such resistance of the Steam sales. Wow.



A - Sweet Uncharted shirt, bruh





S - That two sentence blog.



Lots of quality sauce today.

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.
