C-Blog Recaps for 7/20/13 + Goodbye-gasms

   0




This is some bittersweet shit right here. As I said in my whiny blog, I am stepping down from being a recapper. My life is too shit, with too much going on right now, for me to have any extra on my plate. My brain is fucked and everything is..... everything is pretty shit. You guys cheered me up and pulled me out of the deepest part of that funk, but my situation hasn't changed. Thank you all for being so supportive of me. Shit makes me cry like a baby. I'm honored and humbled, to have such support from people like you guys. It gave me drive and helped me not be so down on myself.

The bright side of this is, you get a recapper who is not shit in my place. Let's be real, I suck as a writer. My only skill is that I can convey emotion like a mother fucker. I write from my heart and I believe it shows. Taking my place and returning to you folks is the fantastically awesome: Manchild. That's a big old cup of fuck yeah in my book. I'll still be around as a reservist to suck it up on occasion though. 

This set of recaps is special for me though. It marks my one year anniversary as a recapper. Wish I could do another, but... yeah. Let's end this (I'm getting really sad right now) and have some recaps and stupid pics, shall we?

* - Marche100 tells you about making a game (THANKS OBAMA!) and some other things in this great blog.





C - ManWithNoName has some ponderings on Ninty and the Wii U.

E - Weekend Warriors does video games live.

T - TheManchild is all up in Dark Souls again.

T - Kyle MacGregor tells us his favorites (so far) of 2013. 

T - Pope has some thoughts on TLOU *SPOILERS*

T - DiZZastergaming writes the best press release for Ubisoft I've seen in awhile.







F - Random thoughts, random fail. Take it to the forums.
F - Don't bother telling me what I'm watching, I won't bother watching. FAIL VID.


I'll see you guys in the forums or maybe in a stupid comment on the front page. I love some of you a lot. Except you. Fuck you.

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.
