Just when you've thought it's safe to relax, along comes a surprise ScottyGasm to the face!

As always, hello my lovely Dtoiders! At the moment I'm exhausted and eating hot dogs (which are a nice comfort food for me). Back on the unemployment line after my temporary job ended today, which is a shame but at least I'll be able to focus on a less temporary thing to do with my life. Or... just play video games until I realize I'm almost broke and take the first job that'll hire me. Either way really.

Speaking of gaming though, things have been good. Beat ODST, which I mostly liked. Frankly didn't dig the story or any of the main characters, none of whom were memorable or even really all that likable. It's a real shame the good story was all within the audio logs, which did something interesting and unique without really interfering with a fairly well defined period in the Halo universe... On top of that I took advantage of a used game sale and picked up Arkham Asylum, Raiden Fighters Aces, Prince of Persia, and Tomb Raider Anniversary for $60, less than the price of Arkham Asylum brand new. Go me! Plan on digging into those soon. ^_^

Um, I was going to also talk about the latest Dtoid/Reddit spat, but I honestly can't be bothered. There are people who would be more than willing to argue with me and they care a lot more than I do. I will however ask that if someone could give me a legitimate reason why Reddit and Digg exist I would appreciate it. <3

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.
