Oops! I nearly forgot about Friday's recaps! I've been spending way too much time playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf this week, which was a gift from my boyfriend (now that I have constant access to his 3DS since we're living together). It was a gift and a curse, since I don't know how I'm expected to get anything important done when there is a new Animal Crossing to play. 

In Animal Crossing, I became the new mayor of Inaba (we're both really big fans of Persona 4), and quickly got to work building my house, meeting the neighbors, and catching fish. At the moment, my small house is mostly an aquarium of sorts, housing some of my favorite animals (squid, octopus, nautilus, piranha, ocean sunfish). I haven't found too much actual furniture that I really like yet. 



My neighbors are all pretty cool, for the most part. Genji and Lobo are my favorites so far. Pancetti and Chops are pretty weird, and the other neighbors are OK but mostly forgettable. I always hope I get Bob or Octavian, because they're awesome, but I don't think I've ever had them in any of my Animal Crossing towns. Oh well.



Also, Nook's shop hasn't been selling any tools except the fishing rod and shovel all week, and it's starting to piss me off! No bug nets, no axes, no watering cans, no slingshots... give me options, Nook! I can't wait for the store to expand, but I'm not sure when that will happen. 

Anyway, these recaps are late enough already so I better stop talking and just post the damn thing! ...and also I can get back to Animal Crossing ;)

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.
