Not much to say. Yesterday I spent about 10 hours trying to get schoolwork in order. After I got home I crashed... I woke up in a panic at 2AM and realized I hadn't even started tonight's recaps. Have you ever sat bolt upright in bed from a sound sleep? It's not as easy as it looks on T.V. and in movies.


*- Mr Destructoid is SO CASH.
*-JT706 posted a list of some of some arbitrary game commercials. I remember seeing all of these and scooting up closer to the TV to make sure I didn't miss a thing.
*-Tremulant wrote about his first experience being raped by George Lucas. Surprised no one posted a pic from that South Park episode.
*-BulletMagnet wrote a nice impressions piece on Ar Tonelico 2.


A-Apparently F.E.A.R. 2 and hangovers don't mix.
S-Tactix posted this week's Destructoid Community Discusses. This week: What will the 8th generation of consoles look like?
S-As always, NihonTiger90 wants to know, What'd You Get?"
M-BradEatsPeeps wrote about how random games on XBL kinda suck in his Monthly Musing.
P-GECKO had Niero and Colette as guests for BBQ and a podcast. A good time was had by all, it seems.
A-CelicaCrazed defiles the corpse of the L4D PS3 rumor while sprinkling salt everywhere.
S-Jackal27's Sound Test returns. This week he spotlights Lonely Rolling Star from Katamari Damacy. That whole game's soundtrack is amazing.



No contests today. Please enjoy this video of the orchestra who performed the music for Super Mario Galaxy.




E-Crainium's pipe is getting slammed. Help him out, won't you?
E-There will be a couple of NARPs coming up in Texas. Sounds like fun!
I-Lots of introductions today. Greetings to Cyanic.

I-And this guy's from the same country. There's like a brazillion introductions today! Welcome, Mirax.

N-Rifter01 found the achievements for Outrun Online.
N-StevePhoenix says THQ is struggling. So are we all, brother.
R-Ocified Xboxer didn't care for the RE5 demo. The flamestorm that followed is actually fairly measured and reasoned. It's unsettling.
R-Another review of RE5's demo from CupOfCocoa. In all fairness, I don't think I could curbstomp a kitten either. That's very distasteful.
R-After those two, this may have been inevitable.
R-And we may be seeing the birth of a new meme here.
R-Ok, yeah. No.
R-Several RE5 demo reviews today. This one's more positive than the others from above.
R-Braunof theDead also had some nicer things to say about it. With a name like that though, he might be workin' for the zombies.
R-Cyanic reviewed the F.E.A.R. 2 demo.
V- Half Left shows off all the fun stuff in Sonic Unleashed. Unfortunately, this takes less than half an hour.

T-Unangbangkay has about three-quarters of a boner for Yakuza 3.

F-DJDuffy got to meet Dennis Muren and got a neat lightshaver.
S-l0cke doesn't really want this Jak 3 swag. Would you?

For the second day in a row, no one failed so badly as to end up here. Are the planets aligning or something?


OH YEAH!

By the way, Universal Music... you suck for not allowing the official video of Kool and the Gang performing this song to be embedded.

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.
