GAMES OF THE WEEK EDITION

This week, I almost finished Assassin's Creed 2. Almost. I had gotten onto one of the last chapters when the game decided to freeze, sending me back a few chapters. So much for the almighty auto-save. I can't be bothered going through another 2 hours of the annoying-as-hell controls, crappy missions and the feather sidequest, so I will be trading it in ASAP.

A friend of mine lent me his copy of The Neverhood. It's a fun, quirky little game that I've been enjoying playing. The story is surprisingly deep and it keeps you guessing. You probably won't be able to get a copy on the cheap anymore, so I'd advise you to watch a walkthrough on Youtube or something. You need to experience this game.

Also, I got SoulSilver, which I spent most of yesterday playing. It's obvious how I feel about the game, so I won't go too far into it. PLease PM me if you want to battle sometime!

Oh, a special shoutout to FalconReaper, who managed to reply quickly to one of my tweets. Keep up those lightning reflexes!

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.
