C-Blog Recaps for 5/4/13 + 5/5/13 + IDFKgasms

I really just don't know anymore. So tired. I took a new weekend shift awhile back and I no longer sleep on Sundays or Mondays other than a few hours Monday afternoon. It is taking quite the toll on me, but I need the money. What ya gonna do? Thank God my caps haven't been the greatest anyway. Problem is, you all deserve great caps. From someone not half asleep and burnt out beyond recognition. So, I'm thinking of stepping down as a recapper. I'll try to switch days with someone first and I will finish my first year (almost there!), but yeah. This sucks. If I didn't children, it'd be a different story, but I simply cannot go on working, raising kids alone, recapping, programming, podcasting, commenting and contesting it up. As much of a workhorse as I am, even I have my limits. To anyone that actually cares, I'm sorry. Like I said, I'll try and make it work, but I don't have high hopes. I love this job and I love you guys though. So let's enjoy this while it lasts.


I've been trying to unwind in some games lately, but I can't seem to play anything more than a half hour at a time anymore. My brain just can't do it, along with my hands. It's kind of sad. But still totally a first world problem. OH NOES! I have played some cool stuff though. Still big into Orion: Dino Horde. Just a fun game to kick back with and blast some dinos. Played a bit of Poker Night 2. Pleasantly surprised by Cambell's replacement. He does a surprisingly good job. The card game has been stepped up and is more fun, but the AI has a hard on for going all-in at just the oddest damn times. Hopefully they patch that up. If not, it was only $5 and I've had more than $5 worth of fun already. Eh, that's all I've got. Let's cap.


No sauce this weekend. Just this:

A- SongSeven has a well written blog and boobs and stuff.
A- Qlum does a great write up on the cost of gaming.
A- Let's play catch up with Randombullseye.


R- Don't forget you can win some sweet ass Steam games from The Low(er) Tier podcast. IT HAS ME ON IT! WOOOOOO!

E- Weekend Warriors gets perverted.
C- Kodu talks about the need for shovelware. Don't really agree on his definition myself, but hey! Fuck it.
S- Let's take a trip down memory lane with BlinkingPixels and look at Star Wars games.
C- Matt Evans thinks CoD could learn some new tricks from Receiver.
C- The new Xbox friends list/program sounds like Twitter. Lame.
C- Joseph O Hagen flips the bird to AAA games.
I- Say hi to ArkhamJester in this intro, that's not really an intro.

T- Roberto shares some Monster Hunter love.
D- ArkCo made Greenlight. WOOOOOOOOO!
T- Sword of the Stars: The Pit is not the pits, according to Shuuda. I agree.
T- A round-up of Achievements from NICk unCAGEd.
T- Suck it Blood Dragon's PC version. Suck it.
T- AssCreed has changed according to TheAce over here. Not for the better either.
T- A cool read about Dead Space 3 from The Salty Hippo.



V- Rathowreck has a new video series.



F- Love this new copypasta trend. Steal all that credit bitches. Makes ya feel good huh?


I'm out. Time to start dinner and then about 4 hours until I can go back to bed. 4 horribly long hours. With yelling and learning and...... *sigh* Anyone want to marry me?

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.
