I am a sad panda today. Well, I should say I was, because all the tequila and blended strawberries in my system are actually making me chipper. Nontheless, I no longer have Xbox Live. My spring semester of school has ended, and now Iím back home, where Iím relegated to stealing wireless from my neighbors, because our only internet connection is my fatherís, and God help me if I should ever touch it. So, to all my L4D/Peggle friends, Iíd like to say I loved all the great times with you these past few months, and donít forget about me: Iíll be back up and running August 15th.

Ok, with that out of the way, onto everyoneís favorite concentrated community blog post! In todayís recap, weíve got a Mexican bee whoís got a penchant for reporting, the first mention of Sega Channel on the cblogs that I can remember, and NO FAIL! ARIBA!

Cblogs: insert witty phrase here.

*-A fantastic article pointing out the flaws in the current game-pricing model every company seems keen on (btw, a 60-hr God of War would be awesome).

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.
