Alright, kids. In an attempt to prepare for PAX, Iíve decided to start a very strange sleeping schedule tonight. No, itíll take too long to explain, but understand that Iím a bit tired, so here are some random thoughts Iíve been having:

King of The Hill is a highly-underrated cartoon.
My room mate has yet to play Castle Crashers or Braid. Thank God I came along to set the boy straight.
Home Movies is also very fantastic.
ĎSplosion Man has the CRAZIEST. ENDING. EVER. Cannot wait to see what Twisted Pixel has in store for us next.
The Jockey sounds fucking crazy. I cannot WAIT to play with it.
Bonars.
Jesus, you people write the best blogs on Tuesday nights. And shame on the failures I had to put up with today.

*-Once again, megaStryke gives us a spectacular edition of Off-Brand Games, examining 8 Eyes this week.

*-A favorite of mine, hereís the 16th part of kjhonsonís Ratchet and Clank fan script.

*-Wanna have better gaming communities? Ride the coattails of your community. A must-read blog today.

*-While I donít agree with this, I canít deny itís a great blog: Are plastic guitars ruining music?

*-WHY HAS NO ONE COMMENTED ON THIS?!?! Canti-sama takes a deep, deep look at the strange tale of Killer 7.

*-BEST. BLOG. TITLE. EVER: We Need A Gaming Fonzie.

*-Here we have young Micro$ux6969. He spends his time trolling SA, and needs a good home. Will you help him out?

*-Where have all the good game developers gone, and where are all the gods?

*-In the fight over which zombie game is racister, UglyDuck suggest itís probably Left 4 Dead.

*-WOOHOO: A great compendium of every Spawn game randombullseye has played.

*-thefil wants game devs to throw everything theyíve got at him, giving Arkham Asylum as an example of doing it right.

*-Wow. Togailís back with a GORGEOUS comissioned piece.

*-Probably the best review of Mirrorís Edge Iíve read in a while.

*-Something tells me this new account is gonna be fun: Dtoid Countdown tells us why Hitler makes our lives better.

*-Yeah, itís a super-late Lair article, but itís a damn good one.

*-diceshow makes a pretty good case for why Turok 2 is blatantly better than Goldeneye.

*-As if you NEEDED any reasons, hereís 5 about why AvP is gonna be incredible.

*-krowís 2nd day of dTunes checks out our own I KILL PXLS.

*-Dear KOF: Wry Guy loves you.

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.
