Well, no one read my last recap section, where I asked "are there any other good TV shows running besides Lost, and Chuck?" Due to a recommendation from a friend, I picked up all of Southland, and wow: is it great. I'm bummed the first season is only 7 episodes, but the word on the street is 13 more were just ordered for Season 2. I say bring it on.

In other "not-me" news, apparently instead of jostling failblogs, Hamza has commanded that we try to leave them alone as much as possible. It's going to be really hard to resist posting Ruby Rhod memes, but I think this is a great practice (at least until Hoborg starts blogging again).

Lastly, everyone should be introduced to an amazing, budding artist that's part of this community: SuitcoatAvenger. He was nice enough to draw me the stylized avatar you see at the bottom of this post.

Oh, herro. Do you rike progressive metal from Denmark?

One hour ago, I had it all typed out: "no fail today!" Then this happened:

F-What was the point in posting this? Hoborg posts the same blog everytime, and it all boils down to some form of the comment: "the PS3 is a waste of money".
F-I sure do love the smell of first time posters and their text-linked youtube blogs with 0 commentary in the morning!

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.
