Yay, another Thursday done! I'd love to say I'm ready to Friday, but unless that Friday involves sleep I'm going to need a nap first.

So... I was hoping to have my nice, shiny, sexy Mad Catz Tournament Edition SFIV Arcade Stick by now. Sadly it would seem that EB Games in Canada (or at least around here) isn't actually getting any until March, and no other store around really carries Mad Catz products. So, in the interests of actually wanting to Play SFIV with friends online I'll have to suck it up and use the shitty 360 gamepad. Thankfully there are still plenty of other games I want to use the arcade stick for (for both 360 and PC), so I'm hanging on to my preorder. :)

And yes... I know I could get a Hori. Thing is though I'd want the Hori Pro EX which is only $20 less than the Mad Catz controller, but no place within Canada that I can find sells it and the cheapest I could find online will charge me ~$80 shipping which after the exchange rate would come to over $300 CDN for a friggin controller. I'm williing to do $200, but not $300. :'(

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.
