Yojimbo is supposed to be filling in tonight for njsykora, but he's busy being a dad and doing all those real life things that end up being more important then recapping the Cblogs. How can Yojimbo's real life be more important then Dtoid you might wonder? Well when you get to be as old as Yojimbo is you'll understand. Luckily for him, and all of you guys, I am able to step in and take over his duties. Or am I taking over njsykora's duties? I don't know. Does it matter? I'm here now and that's all that matters!

Before I begin the recap, let me just say that I'm extremely excited about this weekend. Why am I excited you might ask? Well, I'm excited because me and 7 of my friends are getting together all day Saturday to have an 8-person 4v4 LAN party, in which we plan on playing COD4, TF2, and L4D. It's 8 hours filled with lots of smack talking, lots of junk food, lots of beer, and a huge body count. If anyone lives near the Raleigh, NC area and would ever like to participate please let me know. We hold this LAN party about once every 2 months and always on a Saturday. We are looking for more people to kill, I mean to play along with us, so if you are interested please let me know.

Now on to the day's recaps .....

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.
