Hey all my fellow Dtoid community members. I hope you've all had a good weekend. I ended up celebrating Halloween a week early this Friday night. I dressed up as Rorschach from Watchmen and my girlfriend dressed up as a forest fairy. I have to admit that both of our costumes looked extremely awesome. I plan on posting pictures from the part sometime this week, so be on the look out for them.

I spent most of the week playing Uncharted 2 and loving it. It has some of the best multiplayer, if not the best, I've played all year. I just can't seem to put the controller down. You should check out my official review over at Gamer Limit if you get a chance.

This week I'll be putting all my time and effort into Borderlands on the PC. I have been really excited to play this for a while, and after hearing a lot of people rave about it, I'm ready to dive in head first. I should have a review posted for the game by sometimes next weekend, assuming all goes according to plan.

So I'm curious as to what all of you plan on dressing up as for Halloween. Feel free to share in the comments. :-)

Now onto your regularly scheduled weekend cblog 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.
