LONG BLOG

C-Blog Recaps for 9/30/13 + Philgasms

   0



What up fools? Long time no see. Some butthole couldn't handle doing these, so ole Phil had to come, dick a swinging and pick up the damn slack. How've ya all been? I've missed you, my pretties. Well, as always only some of you. C-Blogs ain't looking all that great still, but I do see progress. There are some good bloggers out there, keep it up folks.

Moving on, have y'all hear about my brother? We are currently sitting $560 away from our $2200 goal. We keep stalling out, but I won't relent until we finish this. So if you can, please spread the word. The family needs the help desperately. Food is low, gas is low, meds are about to refilled and we need that last bit to cover these things. Like I said, if you can hit that link and help me spread the word, I'd be very grateful. I am so grateful for those of you that have already helped too. It means so much. Now do it again :)

Moving onto games, what have you folks been playing? I'm all about Eldritch myself. Described as inspired by rogue-lites and immersive sims, it immediately peaked my interest and hasn't let go. The atmosphere is fantastic, the game is highly polished for only being in beta and most importantly; it's fun. I have a blast exploring the depths, finding loot and either sneaking my way past the horrors or engaging them head-on. No matter my play style, I enjoy the hell outta myself, while playing it. Check that one out but before you go, let's do some cappies.

* - JoelCouture writes this absolutely fantastic blog about the classic Sweet Home. Please give it a read.

A - Skiptomylou has a good read on not giving up on FPS's, but fucks it all up with the Strangelovian title. Of course someone did this the time I come back. Of course.



S - Ole Zombor is up to his usual crazy shit in Chapter 1 of whatever the hell this is.

I - Say hello to Oridan in this lovely intro.

T - AboveUp is totally hitting on me in a roundabout way with this blog about the lovings.

V - FrankHowley has this comedy short about GTA V for you to check out.

T - Skiptomylou explores games that try to elicit emotion from us in this nice read.







F - More effort and no links next time. I don't want your copypasta either, unless it really is relevant and worthwhile. You're here, be here.


Well that was a fun ride. Nice to jump on the ole recapper bike for a minute even if just for today. You folks take care. I need to get a run of Spelunky in and some Eldritch.

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.
