For those in the UK, it's now Election day. Polls open at 7am and remain open until 10pm. Get out the fucking house and vote. I'll be obessing over coverage all day, reinforcing my hand for millions of facepalms and laughing my ass off at the comedy that always arises (intentional or not) from various pundits, actual comedians (Channel 4's election coverage is hosted by Jimmy Carr, David Mitchell and The One True King Charlie Brooker) and Jeremy Vine. I am an election junkie though, so you'll probably be best served just watching the funnies on C4.

VIDEOGAMES this week, or rather videogame. Super Street Fighter 4. Juri's awesome, the online is awesome (not endless Ken's anymore) and the reworked Trial mode is awesome. This is a Game of the Year contender far more than the original SF4 was and if you have any interest in fighters and don't have it yet you need to find an excuse.

It's been mentioned before, this entire sentence is a link to the Humble Indie Bundle, I recommend you pay at least $10 for it if you like videogames.

Once again I have to mention, the European Wii store still hasn't got Cave Story. I WANT TO PAY MONEY FOR THIS GAME.

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.
