No Y0j1mb0, I didn't get the girl. :(

That's okay though because at the least I got a new Latin dance partner, and it isn't a completely lost cause yet. ;)

Busy times abound. Between work, spring cleaning (aka: yet another round of trying to get rid of all the shit I accumulate), and general real life stuff I haven't had much time for gaming. Thankfully LEGO Batman is there to not only entertain but relax me. :)

Overall some good blogs today. A few about Wrestlmania, which are making me nostalgic for the days when I religiously followed pro wrestling. Big shining moment for me was when I went to Wrestlemania X8 in Toronto, then Smackdown two days later in Ottawa. I still believe that the Canadian crowd's love for Hogan is what started his face turn that week, as we cheered him and booed the Rock despite him being billed as the face. I still actually have some left over memorabilia, including a copy of Tributes. I'd never start following it again though, as I've been out for far too long to even think about trying to get back in. Plus I just don't have cable, so it would just be too difficult to keep up with.

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.
