Hi all. Exam next week. European law. Bucket-loads of material. Difficult. No time. CAPS.

“Cassis de Dijon.”

Yes, brain, I know about the Cassis case.

Keck and Mithouard.”

Yes, I know about that one too.

“Commission v. Italy.”

Stop it.

“Groenveld.”

SHUT UP.

“Conegate.”

You’re hurting me!

“Alpine Investments.”

OH GOD THE VOICES ARE EVERYWHERE.

GET OUT OF MY HEAAAAA-



* - Do used game sales harm the industry, or is that more of a campfire story trying to scare is into buying new? DoTheTwist thinks the latter, and offers up some very interesting alternative money making schemes.

A - Right after DoTheTwist's blog, SirAlex highlights Total Biscuits video AGAINST used sales.

A - GoForRainbow loves being a pirate and tries to make piracy sound good. Will he succeed?

S - In what seems like it's going to be a massive series, TheKodu looks at Tropes vs. Women.









N - I had completely missed the announcement of this game, but TronKim tells us something about Panapticon: Freedom Wars. Sounds really cool!

A - Help me out here and convince Pope to tell us more about his Mega Man 25th Anniversary artbook. It looks like a great book and he sounds like a big fan, so there must be things to say! Also Roll upskirt.

F - Apparently Fast & Furious 6 doesn't make a lick of sense. Who'da thunk?

V - I like the idea of this Super Metroid video, but the delivery is kinda shit.

L - Goddammit Dixon, I told you to stay indoors while zombies are on the loose! Well, I guess we're leaderless now, we're fucked.

F - A game that was being made...is still kind of being made. How was this news again?

F - There is promoting your Kickstarter idea, and then there is begging for money. The former is fine, up to an extent. This is not.

F - Complaining about a forum we don't even know about people we don't know from someone we don't really know.

F - Okay, I gave the Super Metroid video the benefit of the doubt, but you really need to stop posting these.

F - He's not lying when he says "a quick word".

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.
