So this weekend is Gay Pride weekend for my city, and there's going to be a parade tomorrow morning right outside my apartment. I'm pretty excited about it, it should be a lot of fun. But because it's in the morning, I'd like to get some sleep while I can, so these -isms are gonna be a bit short. 



This week I played Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom (finally!) and it was a really cute game! I was initially a little put off by the Majin's voice, but I quickly fell in love with it as the game progressed. He's just way too adorable (although he tends to trip over himself entirely too often). I'm not sure I'd recommend the game for everyone, but I really enjoyed my time with it nonetheless. It was clear to me that a lot of heart was put into making the game, and I appreciated that.

I also finally subscribed to PS Plus (it's about time, right?). I played The Cave and Machinarium for free this week, two more really cute games. I like cute things, you see. I've also got access to XCOM: Enemy Unkown, Uncharted 3, Saints Row the Third, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, among other games, all for FREE! I'm wondering which one I should play first. I'm thinking I might try out XCOM first, even though I'm not too big on strategy games. It just looks really cool.

Anyway, my bed is calling for me. Happy Gay Pride month, everyone! :)

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.
