So I'm back after having last weekend off from my usual recap duties. I would like to thank Magnalon and Nintendoll for filling in for me. I was at the beach visiting an old friend, getting some sun, and seeing the new Harry Potter movie. If you haven't seen it yet, and you are a Harry Potter fan, then I highly recommend you go see it. What am I saying? If you are a real Harry Potter fan you already did see the movie.

Speaking of movies, my girlfriend took me with her to go see the new Katherine Heigl movie, The Ugly Truth, tonight. As far as romantic comedies go, this was wasn't so bad. You could definitely do a lot worse guys. It's got Gerard Butler, from the popular movie 300, in it, which was pretty cool. I kept expecting him to say "This is Sparta", but he never did. Oh well. If your girlfriends/wives drag you to this movie, just know you will probably enjoy it.

Let's speak games for just a moment shall we. If you guys haven't played the new PSN game Shatter yet, you really should. This game is totally awesome. It's kind of like Arkanoid, but on crack. Yeah, I would say that a fair description of the game. It's only $7.99, so go pick it up now. I promise you won't regret it.

Ok let's get on with the Saturday recaps shall we.

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.
