I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and stuffed their stomachs full of delicious food. I ate enough for three people to be honest with you, so I'm pretty content. When I wasn't eating I was spending most of my holiday traveling, which didn't allow me much time to play games. My girlfriend and I have decided to not travel anywhere next year. If people want to celebrate Thanksgiving with us, they can come to our house and we'll cook them food. We aren't traveling all over the state again to visit multiple families. It's just not gonna happen.

When I did find the time to game this week, I played Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, and Modern Warfare 2. I finally got a chance to try out Special Ops mode in MW2, and I am completely hooked. My friend Chris and I are working our way through every level, not moving onto the next until we get all 3 stars. So far we are about 40% of the way through. I absolutely love it! Ratchet and Clank is awesome as well, but I don't want to say to much on that subject because I'm writing the official review for Gamer Limit. It's going to get a high score, I can tell you that much. Before I forget, I also downloaded GTA: China Town Wars for my PSPgo. I look forward to diving head first into that soon.

So how was everyone else's holiday? Did you all eat yourself into a comma and game till your heart's content, or was it just another weekend for you?

By the way ... for your viewing pleasure this week ... I present the Turkey Dragon ....

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.
