There are blogs from yesterday in this recap because the Dtoid c-blog page failed while I was recapping and it took me a while until I noticed it had loaded the same page I'd just been looking at.

Also this is the first recap I've written where I haven't had to go back and correct some formatting. I think I'm starting to get it.

I've literally gotten about 2 hours of sleep and have to go to work in about 5 minutes so I'll make this as coherent as possible.

Tiger Woods 09 has done something very few games are able to do, make me feel like I suck but still be fun to play, even when my beloved golf avatar (actually not modelled on me, so as to not remind me that I suck at golf in real life) is taking about 5 putts to drop the ball. Yeah I'm a big golf nerd, even though I haven't actually played a round in quite some time. I need a new set of clubs really.

Penny Arcade Adventures goes up on PSN today for you American people, if you haven't taken in this game yet then I highly recommend you do if you like some good RPG action. Its $15 so European types should be expecting within the 10 region, possibly a little less. I'll have to think about it as space on my PS3 is becoming slightly premium now that my download game collection is expanding.

Also I resumed play of my Persona 3 save yesterday after about 3 months of neglect. I remembered everything, that's how much that game embedded itself in me. I gotta get FES.

MechaMonkey tomorrow, I'm gonna finish watching the baseball and go to work. Goodnight.

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.
