I hope everyone has had a good Labor Day weekend so far, unless you are not American, in which case this was just another weekend. For those of you who are at PAX, I hope you all had a great time. I have to be honest and attest to the fact I hate all of you, but that's only because I'm jealous. I really wanted to go to PAX, but things just didn't work out. Instead I have enjoyed a nice relaxing weekend at home with my girlfriend.

Speaking of PAX, if you haven't checked out ScottyG's blog post with the video from Dtoid's PAX panel, you need to. The video captures the very end of the panel, at which time Chad and the rest of the Dtoid staff all sing a hilarious song they wrote themselves about the Dtoid community. You seriously have to watch this. I was pretty excited because I was actually mentioned in the song. Not sure how I managed that one, but it's pretty damn awesome. Qalamari and ScottyG were also mentioned.

In other gaming related news, I am finally getting around to playing Uncharted on the PS3. I can't believe it took me this long, but it was well worth the wait. I absolutely love it. It has it's flaws, but it's easy to forget them since there are so many things the game does right. I'll talk more about this after I've beaten the game, but for now just know that I'm playing it and I love it.

Well it's time to get to the recaps, so let's get this show on the road ....

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.
