C-Blog Recaps for 7/6/13 + Philgasms

   0



Life..... what a bitch, eh? I'm all sad panda at the moment. If you've noticed, my recaps haven't been great lately... well ever, actually. Lately though they've really fucking sucked. Life's kicking my ass and it's hard to focus on these. I haven't been playing as many games as I normally do, my legs constantly killing me and yeah. all sorts of other problems. You guys don't want to hear that shit though. You want some recaps and some happy isms for once, right?


Too bad, this is my show and I'll run it the way I want, while I'm still around. I do want to talk about a game though... so SHUT UP! FIRE & ICE BABY! :p Steam currently has/had Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed for f2p over the weekend, along with the discounted price of $7.50. One really awesome lady I know, gifted me a copy of it. I believe she did this just to kick my ass constantly, but hey, I'm having a blast. I honestly am enjoying this more than Mario Kart (I KNOW THE BLASPHEMY!). The speed feels better, the karts are cooler and tracks.... oh man the tracks are insane. All of this, also wrapped in nostalgia. So many feels. The Shinobi track, the Jet Set one, Skies of Arcadia.... The music, just all of it is so damn good.


Currently racing my ass off to unlock that guy. Favorite Sega character ever. I played Shinobi 3 so much as a kid, I can run that game blindfolded I bet. On the third tier of races now, but have a ways to go. I really dig how you level up the karts/characters and can equip them with mods. Using the right mod on the right track, makes all the difference.


I really dig when you can be a jet too. The transformed in the title, really means something, as you go from kart, to boat, to air, all in one race. Multiple times even. Every form feels solid and controls well. So yeah, pick this game up. Console or Steam. It's a god damn blast. Only kart racer that ever came close to Mario Kart imo (and surpassed it imo). Now let's get to some cappys ladies. Killing Floor just updated with a new map (also on sale until the 11th, $3.99) and I need to shoot some clowns.

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.
