C-Blog Recaps for 6/8/13 Philgasms

   0


Someone needs to clean those damn toilets. Jesus. How y'all doing? Excited for E3? Not to be a dick, but I'm not. Not for any negative reasons, but I'm very content with I have gaming wise now. I don't feel I need anything else. Yes, even you MGS V. It feels weird dismissing a Metal Gear game, but there it is. I'm swimming in awesomeness. This past week saw the incredibly awesome Gunpoint enter my library, as well as Zeboyd's followup to Penny Arcade 3 (I GET TO REVIEW IT AND GOT A REVIEW COPY YAAAAAAAAY!), as well as the return of my favorite Resident Evil in some years to my library; Revelations. Fucking loves me some Raid mode.


That's me and Panza whoring it up in Raid mode. I have a major beef with international co-op though. It lags pretty fucking bad. Certain times of the day are ok, but Capcom needs to beef up the servers. Played with someone in the same region as me today and we had no problems. Panza and I though, have had nothing but. It sucks, but I can always solo or play with other Americans I guess. I just really want to show off my lovely Lady Hunks :)


It's a damn fun game regardless of server issues (that will hopefully disappear as we move away from launch, I doubt Capcom will fix them) and I'm impressed with PC port. They listened to feedback from the demo and fixed the controls and patched a few other things and the whole thing works great. Looking forward to co-oping the story mode now as well too. That's a neat addition. Alright, I need a few matches before work tonight, so let's get to capping. Recapping that is.

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.
