Ever since Bit.Trip Core was released this week, it's been pretty much all I've been playing. Even though Core shares a similar look with Beat, the gameplay is completely different. The developers really weren't lying when they said it's a more traditional rhythm game, as it takes a lot more practice to be good at. In Beat, you could get by with just sort of winging it, and going by reflexes, but not the case in Core.

I almost finished the game today. I can get to the last boss on the third stage, but everything just seems really random, with notes coming out from every which direction at once, and there is no videos of the boss on YouTube yet, so I can't get help there. But seriously, the game is freaking amazing, Gaijin really has a winner on their hands when it comes to their Bit.Trip series.

Also, check out my review of the Yukiko Amagi figure from Persona 4 over on the Tomopop Cblogs. I was contemplating reposting it on the Cblogs today, but just decided to put it in the recap instead.

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.
