I spent this evening in an itchy sweater depicting 2 gentlemen fishing for large-mouth bass.

A friend of mine is moving to New Mexico for a few months. She’s the kind of friend who enjoys it when her friends do weird and stupid shit. So I had the idea of doing ugly sweater pics with a handful of friends. If you’ve never done anything like that with your close group of friends, reconsider. It’s a fucking awesome time acting like complete jackasses, especially when the end result of jackassery is great photos like this:







Jesus Christ, it’s days like today that make me fall in love with the community. We have probably the most Topsauced blogs ever, discussion about Disney villains, and a little Fail to piss in your coffee. Enjoy.



*-So Chad Concelmo made a list of the best Disney villains, which stevenxonward added to, and ace of knaves got pissed about.

*-Xzyliac continues his incredible series on bands grossly under-represented in Rock Band.

*-Togail. Do I need to say anything further?

*-Elsa helps to make the season bright with these fucking awesome Christmas traditions. I am SO TOTALLY doing the Christmas journal!

*-Ali D takes a great in-depth look at a game I just finished, Dead Space, in light of the sequel announcement.

*-Arkhon defends Rock band and Guitar Hero in the best way possible.

*-Technophile attempts to get a Dtoid WoW guild going, and muses about his time in Azeroth.

*-A wonderful selection of indie shmups, presented by Diverse.

*-Sevil Monthly Muses about the game stories that pull a Fonzie towards the end.

*-randombullseye expounds on his hatred for getting rid of games, either by trading or borrowing.

*-If you didn’t catch it on the front page, here’s an account of the Dtoid UK crew taking over the Capcom Christmas party.



S-Wanna see some pics of a PS3 Slim and a cute puppy?

S-Nick Chester tells us something we already knew.

M-Love/Hate: The scary side of gaming.

P-Remember how nice it was not having FAILCAST record last week? Well, sadly those liars are back to try and record again.



S-nekobun takes the reins for his 2nd day of dTune-age.



V-Miss any of the No More Heroes 2 virals? Check out this great compendium from ShadesofDante.

T-mollygos loves Majora’s Mask, and if you read her blog, you probably will too.

T-What’s your opinion on custom soundtracks for games? Check out GiftofGab’s blog on the subject.



F-There’s a reason this has no comments or faps.

F-Xzyliac was right.

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.
