BWOMP BWOMP!!!

Hello once again my pretties. ScottyG here giving you a healthy dose of a ScottyGasm.

To be honest I haven't been up to all that much. Got laid off right before PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAX, and spent the week after PAAAAAAAAAAAAAX sick in bed. Since then it's been a lot of sloth and video games with very little in the way of job hunting. I did manage to get a temporary job though which pays depressingly well (compared to the previous jobs I've had), but I do need to get my butt in gear and figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. ;)

Gamewise I replayed No One Lives Forever (<3) with the intention of making a "Forgotten" Monthly Musing. It's a bit late for that now but I still intend to do a writeup as it's a criminally underrated game and Kate Archer is another perfect example of a good female protagonist that people keep overlooking.

I also played through Tomb Raider Underworld, managing to get 1000GS on it. Planning on doing a review, possibly with more nekkidness. Is it sad that the only two games I have 1000GS on are both Tomb Raider games?

Now if you'll excuse me it is my birthday tomorrow (technically today I suppose), so I best be getting to bed. <3 <3 <3

Also... Tucker Max adverts? I know you gotta pay the bills and all, but WTF Dtoid? Everybody knows that Maddox > Tucker Max a million times over. :)

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.
