LONG BLOG

I hope everyone is fat and happy! I know I am! I made sure I was ready by doing my exercise routine before the meal was served. Nothing builds an appetite quite like working up a sweat!

I had promised my mother that I would join her in visiting Toys "R" Us for the midnight sale. I thought it would be fun, but waiting in that long-ass line was not fun. There was another line just to check out of the store. And you could just feel a chill in the air, that some disgruntled shopper could snap at any moment. That's why I don't do the Black Friday shit. This was a one-off, mom.

For all the bitching and moaning I do, I am so thankful for what I've got. I love my family. I love feeling needed and appreciated. I just love the simple things. A bunch of you have stuff you are grateful for and decided to share them with us today. Some cbloggers had a lot to say, while some just had quick holiday wishes. Today was a special day, so no matter how short your post was, no one got failed.

Drive-by wishes from Klipsched.
Cowzilla is thankful for the recap team and a whole bunch of other people and things of lesser importance.

Sadistic actually remembers The Critic.
RoG from I-Mockery provides a Duck Hunt-themed video.

We've got a long month ahead of us. Let's keep our spirits up. Hey, at least you weren't forced to eat tofu turkey:

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.
