So I spent most of this week playing and beating Dead Space: Extraction for the Wii. If you are a Dead Space fan, or if you are the type of person who likes to complain that there are no mature games on the system, you should really try this out. Please don't get put off by the fact it's an on-rails shooter, because if so you'll be missing a pretty great game. You can read my complete thoughts in my official review I wrote for Gamer Limit.

I've also been playing God of War: Chains of Olympus this week on my PSPgo. That game is pretty freaking awesome, though I wish my left thumb didn't hurt so much after using the damn analog nub on the system. I don't think Sony had comfort in mind when they designed the PSPgo. The controls just straight up feel awkward to be honest with you.

This is a HUGE week in games and I personally have my heart set on Uncharted 2 and Brutal Legend. After have a huge exam to take on Tuesday for my graduate class, but after that I'm going home to play Uncharted 2 all night. Actually, I'm pretty much dedicating my entire week to Drake's new adventure. Anyone want to play through the co-op campaign with me. If you are interested let me know.

That's enough form me for now. Let's get to the recaps.

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.
