TheManchild strolled through the halls of his dimly lit apartment, pacing back and forth as he often did while singing a jaunty limerick.

"Oh me Oh my, Oh Chicken Thigh, what oh what shall I do today?
There's Game Boy games
Steam sales galore.
I could paint my face like a
dirty whore
or watch some eps of
Jersey Shore
Oh Trolly-lolly-lay."

He went to the kitchen to get breakfast as he often did at breakfast time. Thick mounds of butter on toast, water fresh from leaking tap, and a puff or two of month old hash after his belly was full and warm.

"Ah what I fine and glorious day. There is nothing that could be better. Methinks I shall play some Star Wars on the Game Boy before retiring for a morning nap."

As playing, a thought crept into his brain; a wormy, slithering thing, burrowing into his skull.

"OH FUCK ME I FORGOT THE FUCKING RECAPS FOR FUCK SAKES. Is it fuckin' Friday already? Jesus Christ what the fuck!"

And now I'm here.

* - Games should be fun, and it's always nice to be reminded of this once in awhile.

P - A new Pocketoid is out! Go now. NOW.

A - Peter M. is up to some Kickstarter shenanigans.

A - A deeper look at Hitman Absolution.

F - I only recently went into an FNF and TF2sdays match. Couldn't get my mic to work the first time, got told my voice was awful the second. But goddamn was it ever a hell of a lot of fun. Don't forget to donate to Swishiees TF2 server if you like what you say. Does anyone have change for a Mars bar?

T - This is cool. I never did get around to playing Echoes, but kingsharkboi did, and thinks it is underappreciated.

T - Memories of Need for Speed. I remember the original game where Denis Leary would go ape shit on you every time you lost a race.

R - Code of boobs is a titly great funbag. It breasts the competition with boob. I'm sorry. I meant Code of Princess. And it's good. Boobs.

F - Sorry, but this is a forum post. Put it there instead. And yeah, I know I'm not failing the ads anymore. I have put them in the same category as "everything ever by Karutomaru." Like that person, we don't need to give them more attention.

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.
