Phew! Busy day! I'm glad that's over! I think I deserve a Twix chocolate bar. It's two for me and fuck you!

Anyway, I had mentioned this last week but there was a NARP this past weekend over at nademagnet's pad up in Orlando. Nice dude. Splendid host. Let me crash on his couch. We had a projector running with games of Street Fighter IV and Batman Akham Asylum, there was an SSBB throwdown, and I even gave it my all to run through Mega Man 9 in a single sitting. Couldn't do it. Wily handed me my ass on a platter and I was too stupid to stock up on E Tanks before entering the castle. That fucker. He doesn't get laid, you know that? Why else would he be fucking with me year after year?

I think the best part of the night was my Bacon Explosion! It was my first time preparing the meal, but it turned out not bad at all. People were talking about it! They gave me my props! I'm pleased that you have clogged your arteries on my cuisine! Man, that stuff was heavy! We sliced the bastard up and ate them on Pillsbury biscuits! Heaven!

So, again, thanks to nademagnet for opening his doors to everyone.

Now, on to the final order of business this evening: Hironobu Kageyama of Dragon Ball Z fame singing Ken's theme from Street Fighter II!

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.
