Happy Return of Max Scoville Day everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was great! I won some stupid coffee contraption at work (I don't like coffee but I like selling shit for money). I also saw Thor 2 and found it to be an acceptable way to spend two hours. And then last night I went and saw Chance The Rapper!

If you're not into Hip-Hop or just unaware of who he is, he's a rapper (go figure) from Chicago who is on the verge of blowing up. The show was in a college town and at a not very big venue. He played nearly everything from his latest mixtape, Acid Rap as well as a Cold play cover which I totally didn't see coming.



One really cool thing about seeing a Hip-Hop show is that often time they play with a live band which brings a whole new sound to the songs you're used to. Another cool thing is that shady dudes will try and get you to buy drugs! All in all though it was a great time.

I would also like to declare here that I WILL finish Pokemon Y this week. It shall happen. Also, any of you picking up a PS4 this week? If so what are your plans?



* - I really like what Dannaz has to say in regards to overhyping. I find it hard to not get over hyped though.

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.
