Well, I don't have much to say other than the inFamous demo was amazingly incredible. I've always been a huge fan of the Sly Cooper games, and as an action-whore, this game really delivers. Sure, it could have been fleshed out in regards to a few areas, but it's fun!

I also found a new show to pick up. Strangely, I've never seen The Wire. I'm like 4 episodes into the first season, and I'm loving it. I understand that many critics regard it as the "best show ever made", so if you like crime dramas, watch it!

Oh, and I made a stupid joke regarding Killzone 2's optional controls. Disregard it!

Oh look another rockin' power metal song!


*-Did Y0j1mb0 just predict Jet Set Radio Online? Hell yea!.
*-Chef Pendleton wants to tickle your taste-buds, then rape them.


M-Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth ? Ooh Tran-syl-vania is a Place on Earth!
P-Pocketoid Episode 1 Records Tonight!
A-Wry Guy asks: "What's with all the Wii hate?"


E-OMG a contest! Walrus want's you to MSPaint yourself to a 50% off Demigod coupon.


E-bahs gives us more amazing Destructoid Trading Card Game goodness!


F-CrocBox will be showing Mystery Science Theater 3000 on Sundays. Sounds cool to me!
M-Ever wanted more FFVI fan-work? 4knuckleshuffle promises to deliver...hard.
M-Music....overload...If you can take youtube embed after embed, Analoge will make you want to play all these games over again.
M-Ani-Wednesday is streaming Zoids, Escaflowne, and one of my all-time favorites, GTO, compliments of Genji-JAM. GTO is about a badass ex-motorcycle gang member that becomes a teacher: with hilarious results!.


T-Some more thoughts on Rapeplay...again
T-Killzone 2 is a clingly slut.
N-unangbangkay has matlocked some photos of attractive anime women for your viewing "pleasure".
T-Wan Sum Dung reminds us how awesome Paper Mario was.
T-Only the hardcore GBA-ers remember this puppy. Durga AI reminds me of an awesome backlight.
T-Another day, another "Should I buy Cross Edge" blog. Tell Covah how awesome it is.
T-It wouldn't be a day on the blogs without more Zippyduda MGS speculation.
T-Slash watermelons and Tengu heads while avoiding bombs on the DS! Wait what? NihonTiger90 has the details.


R-Zippyduda posts one of those Livejournal-ist "things to do before you die" checklists, and I don't know what to think of it!
R-Kojima secretly has another counter, for his counter, which in turn, was a counter for a counter!
R-Mr PORC gives us random videos of random stuff that's "back by popular demand". Maybe this was before my time?


F-FinnE is a "first generation gamer", and Lost Odyssey is his first JRPG. Zuh?
F-Cyber Altair could have made gametoid, but his name and failure prevented it.



Ding! Blogs are done: just sit back, relax, and put some head-phones on:

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Changes

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.
