Yo nerds! You ready to have some sticky wet recaps popped in your ass? GOOD!

So my PS3 died. That was a lovely shit surprise. Hopefully getting it fixed this week so I can continue my pirating adventures in Assassin's Creed IV. In the mean time I've just been playing a ton of LoZ: Link Between Worlds and Spelunky. I'm looking forward to the Playstation 14 sale tomorrow, I wanna get peace Walker and play through it before Ground Zeroes comes out.

I've also been watching Space Dandy. At first I was a little iffy on it but the second episode sold me on it. I just wish it had a bit more of those super badass choreographed fight sequences. If you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend checking it out.

Lately I've been wanting to buy a new board game and I got a $50 Amazon gift card for Christmas. I've narrowed it down to King of Tokyo (going to play it at game night at the bar tonight) and Eldritch Horror (haven't played it but I have played Arkham Horror). Have any of you played either of these games before?

I'd love to talk more nerdy junk but I've got a lot of real life dumb adult things to do today so I should wrap this up. Hope you guys have a fantastic week! I know I'm going to!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Changes

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.
