Penis penis penis penis penis penis. I've taken to saying penis as a greeting when I enter a room lately. Also I've sucked at recapping lately, 1 late recap, 1 missed recap last week (a change in recap computer which screwed me over) and now an ON TIME RECAP! Check the skies.

Videogames videogames videogames. I haven't exactly been playing much lately. It's been bitesized nuggets of gameplay when I feel like it. Instead I've been doing not much again. It's really quite hard to think of what I've really been doing lately.

Oh right, I've gone into election mode. I'm a hopeless election addict and it's my home country heading towards one this time. I have manifestos to read, news to watch and read and come May 6th an entire glorious night of coverage to obsess over courtesy of the hilarious Jeremy Paxman and hopefully the insanity of the BBC's graphics department.

I need help. Oh well, here are some blogs and the answer to that most critical question. Where did I put Beyamor's quest for Failtoid blog?



* - I won't keep you waiting, Beyamor gets Topsauce because his #2 is still making me giggle
* - Good rant, Apple aren't nearly as safe among nerds now everyone else is catching up
* - What the original Xbox Live (being deactivated today as you read this) means to Alakaiser
* - Related to the above blog, Tarvu's hosting one final blowout to say goodbye to Halo 2
* - Dear Niero, can we have a Dreamtoid category in the Cblogs?



A - Thoughts on games that repeat the same formula

N - Batthink found this list in the Telegraph newspaper, interesting (if badly titled) stuff

A - Enkido made art, also SHARK
A - GAME CAKE!! Grimspoon's Day of the Tentacle cake
F - Xandaca saw Clash of the Titans, poor guy
M - Guncannon showcases some of his favourite MMX intro stage remixes



? - This is certainly quite random, especially as a first blog



F - OK, some context would be nice, else this is just pointless rage
F - I don't feel good failing this, especially with the comments being brutal (and hilarious)
F - There are adverts in my Cblogs
F - uck off


(NJ, also ZOMG I ACTUALLY PUT MY AVATAR IN HERE)

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.
