C Blog Recaps of 01/14/13 + mcgeeisms

   0

Welcome one and all to the sideshow that. Is. THE RECAPS! As my fleshy sex doll PhilKenSebben pointed out in yesterday's recaps, I haven't been around much lately. There are certain reports about me playing board games with the Ancient Ones, that I will neither deny or confirm. However, I can say that if I was playing said games with said entities, I definitely won, and was granted several things. Namely, my freedom. I needed that back. But perhaps more amusingly, I finally garnered the position of Dream Wrangler that I desperately was craving. As head of sleep-kings, I put my new powers into use as soon as I could.

Don't believe me? Check out the front page today. I've infested some of Destructoid's finest editors' dreams with my own thoughts! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

SEE YOU IN YOUR DREAMS, DTOID


CAPS for you, haps?



* - UsurpMyProse beat Dark Souls. Hard. But on the road to sweet victory, he was assaulted by thoughts of assaulting caused by being assaulted. Read about the five bosses that made him most want to fist-greet a baby in his facial region.

P - A new episode of Binary Chode! Listen to the science, and check out the show notes/links. All you need to know, is that animal sex counts as science. So don't feel bad.

P - Secret Moon Base is back, and comes bearing gifts of blab. They gab about this & that and maybe videogames. They also give Far Cry 3 an awful score. Come register your hate/praise. All heil be the Human Fiddler Crab Lord.





I - DePeir is new here, and has a somewhat short intro for us. We do get a feel for some of the things he likes, but not a lot about himself. Go say hi and ask him stuff! +1 for see-through plastic.

I - DpadJoe introduces himself by giving his thoughts on sexuality in gaming, and lack of LBGT characters specifically.

I - Another introduction, say hello to Oven Fries! He sucks at Dark Souls PVP. I'm sure there's one or two folks around here that could offer up some tips ;)

T - Hey, It's Scott from Fullicide! He assures us that he's a real person, thereby making me suspicious that he is an android or body-snatcher of some sort. Also, he has some thoughts on the "Probation" period that can be applied to you in COD; Black Ops II. Do you think it's fair? Do you just not care? Come over here and wave your hands in the air.









F - Students health insurance is important. That's a fact. Maybe.

F - Is child health insurance more important? Decidedly, yes.

F - Remember that Rocko episode? Where a satellite crashed into Rocko's house?

F - The one where Bucky could really only build bathrooms, but it wasn't even him doing the work? It was his female "assistant"? That was pretty funny.

F - Slolar Planlels.

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.
