So, a lot of people are pretty against me getting the Destructoid tattoo. Well, I just wanted to take time out to defend myself. Here's what I wrote in the forums:

Since a lot have asked me about this, yes, I'm 150% sure. Before Dtoid, I never really had a place to talk about games; I never had any real gamer friends, and every other community I was a part of felt rather lifeless and troll-filled. Through Dtoid, I've met some amazing fucking people, gotten the opportunity to do things I'd never think to do before, and write about something I'm passionate about. Though most of you might think this is a fucking terrible idea, I have so much love for this site and the things it's given me that I can't think of anything better to do than get this tattoo. The fact that you, the community, are helping me make/choose it makes the tattoo that much more special.

So, call me stupid if you want. I'll just be here in the corner with an amazing fucking tattoo.

Also, if you love horror movies, PLEASE click the first link in the Topsauce blogs. You won’t be disappointed.

*-Togail, my favorite cblog artist, amazes again with this Yoshi drawing.

*-Yeah, I know, but I don’t care: my glass final project, Mega Man vs. Glass Man.

*I couldn’t have said it any better: What needs to be in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.

*-The most adorable fucking thing you’ll see all day, maybe even all week.

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.
