Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year! Not only because I get to see family and eat all of the delicious foods, but also because it happens near my birthday. This year, my birthday fell on Thanksgiving day! I celebrated by playing board games with the family and eating too much turkey, cranberries, pumpkin pie, and sweet potatoes! My god, I could eat nothing but sweet potatoes for the rest of my life and be content. Seriously, boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew... I'll eat them however they're cooked. They are unquestionably my favorite food.


Oh god, I just googled sweet potatoes and now I want them inside of me so bad.

Black Friday also happened, but I didn't buy anything this year. I only went out on Black Friday once in my life, to buy a laptop because my old one had just died (after I spilled Coke on it... oops). It was a crazy experience, and I haven't really felt the desire to go anywhere on Black Friday since. There were some great deals though, I'm sure. Anybody get anything good?

I'm gonna keep things short this week because I'm still relaxing on my holiday break. I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving!

* - Roberto Plankton's art and words are always entertaining. This time, he explores himself by creating self portraits inspired by several games. I'd say the Nemesis one is my favorite of the bunch.

A - StriderHoang expected more adventure out of Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage? Sad day...

F - Friday Night Fights on the 360 + Food comas!

F - Friday Night Fights on the PS3 + More food comas!

T - TheKodu actually kind of liked the new Devil May Cry demo! Here's what he thought about it.

A - The webcomic Ctrl-Alt-Del appears to be officially over, and nekobun is thankful. Also, I've watched the video he posted at the end of the blog at least 5 times already.

F - Bankrupt Gamer finally watched the Star Wars movies for the first time and reviews them.

R - TroyFullbuster tells us what's been going on in his life this month. Then he hates on Thanksgiving? What the heck, dude?



I am thankful for no fails this week!

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.
