Today I woke up extra early so that I could make it to my local Best Buy at 11AM for the beginning of their $10 game sale. If the thought of waking up early to be some place at 11AM on a Sunday is hilarious to you, you should know I typically make it a habit to not even wake up before 11AM on Sundays. Suffice to say, my goal was to get to Best Buy in time to pick up a copy of Soul Caliber 4, Devil May Cry 4, and Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword before they were all sold out.

Well when I got to Best Buy there was already a line of about 20 people waiting at the door. I was tempted to just turn around and leave right then, but my awesome girlfriend convinced me to stay anyways. It's a good thing she did because I ended up picking up 2 copies of Soul Caliber 4 for the PS3, and a copy of Ninja Gaiden for the DS. I almost got a copy of Devil May Cry 4, but other people had already grabbed up all the copies before I got a chance to snag one. Suffice to say, I left Best Buy very happy indeed. Now I have an extra copy of Soul Caliber 4 that I need to give away. I just need to decide who to give it away to ....

Oh, I would also like to mention that my Carolina Hurricanes shut out the New Jersey Devils tonight 4-0 at home. I look forward to the 7th and final game of the series on Tuesday night! LET'S GO CANES!!!

All in all, it was a great Sunday. Now time for the recaps ...

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.
