One of the things that hurts me is how little time I have to play Atlantica Online, that turn based MMORPG that its makers are very proud of. I love the game and I really enjoy my time spent playing it but whenever I'm on the computer in this house that has Atlantica on it I either a) start up a torrent, b) fap or c) end up playing Guild Wars or Perfect World. Why can't I fire up a genuinely fun and enjoyable MMO instead of my old habit (GW) or the inexplicably hooking Perfect World?

While on the subject of free MMOs, I got into the beta for the Football MMO Football Superstars recently and I plan on getting some game time in on that tomorrow. I reckon it'll be interesting to see how something as active as a sport can translate to MMOs.

Space Giraffe is coming out on PC next week. GIVE JEFF MINTER YOUR MONEY!

Also to finish on, a gentleman I know has been banned from the audience of Deal or No Deal because of his hobby tracking game stats. Its not really videogame related, but I think its very interesting that someone who gets a kick out of statistics could be banned from a TV show rich with stats because of it.

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.
