I would like to begin tonight's recap by first thanking Garison for covering for me on yesterday's recap. That was the first time I have ever asked for someone to take over my spot, and I honestly felt bad. I probably shouldn't, since I have definitely covered for other people close to 15 times, but I still do anyways. Thanks Garison! You are full of awesome!

Just so you all know, I am very addicted to Killzone 2's multiplayer. As much as I like it though, I do have quite a lot of issues with it. The fact you don't get access to all the classes in the beginning of the game, really causes some major balance issues in my opinion. A team full of higher ranked members, who have all the class abilities to choose from, can basically decimate a team with lower ranked individuals who have no class abilities. This obviously won't be a problem eventually, once everyone ranks up, but right now it causes me some headaches. Maybe I'm just too used to playing Team Fortress 2, where you can pick from every class from the get go. Anyways, that's my only major problem with the multiplayer so far. I have several smaller complaints, but nothing worth boring you with here.

Let's get to the recaps shall we ....

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.
