So demos, today I played the Modnation Racers PSP one and you know what, I think provided they put all the creative stuff for Karts and Mods in this version of the game this could actually outclass its PS3 big brother. I'm certainly more entertained by the AI here than I was by the beta AI. Sure online play takes a hit but provided I can still use downloaded tracks I'm fine with that. Only problem is removing the option to auto-decorate a track makes the track creator a bit unnecessarily fiddly if you're going for something awesome. I can't see myself tweaking a track for hours on the PSP like I can for the PS3 version. Weirdly I reckon I'll end up getting both, a grand testiment to Sony's dedication to putting their major franchises on both their formats. Hopefully this is how things'll work for the PSP now, since Modnation PS3 and PSP are both out at the same time. I'm looking forward to them certainly.

Things I've found porn of today, the 5th gen starter Pokemon (all 3 of them) and the MALE 5th gen Pokemon trainer. Also Nick Clegg/David Cameron slash. Internet, you never fail me.

Oh yeah, and Portal's free now. GO DOWNLOAD IT.

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.
