C-Blog Recaps for 6/1/13 + 6/2/13 + Gunpointgasms

   0



I'm going to speak my mind on something and it may hurt some of y'alls feels. Sorry. I am disappointed though. For the past couple months it seems the c-blogs are going down the shitter. Sure we still have good entries (amazing in some cases), but they are being buried under bullshit. A lot of what I'm seeing is forum posts, not c-blogs. There is no excuse for this people. There are guides to help you. There are examples to help you. Community members are telling you this is not cool, yet some of you aren't listening. Our blogs are not like other places. This is a shared space and it's very special to me and a lot of other folks. Make an introduction post, by all means blog, but make sure it's worthy of a blog. Make sure you're not knocking someone off the front roll for a bullshit joke/3 sentence crap blog. Seriously sit back and think about what you're posting. Could it be fleshed out more? Is the content interesting? Is it just some dumb fucking meme that could be posted elsewhere? In short: STEP YOUR GAME UP. Oh and don't fucking copypasta. I will go out of my way to get you banned. Moving on....

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.
