C Blog Recaps of 09/10/12 + mcgeeisms

   0



Tonight's recaps are brought to you by nostalgia and this motherfucking elephant.
* - Wrenchfarm is a man who truly appreciates his jazz, as well as good game design. Come read about player choice, player (and developer) restraint, and the assassin's assortment of Dishonored.

* - KingSigy loves Mario and Link, maybe to a fault. Here he takes a look his own possible bias and whether or not it's affected his thoughts about other games. Be ye biased?

A - S Pastic throws his hand up quickly, as he sees another game borrow mechanics from Batman's recent game outings.

A - SephirothX has some first impressions of Steam's Big Picture Mode. I like what Steam is doing here.

C - PhilK3nS3bb3n is back with yet another contest, giving away Shattered Horizon! Go win it so you can literally jump around in zero gravity (space) and shoot people.





D - Steam Greenlight is the new Kickstarter! Just kidding. Kinda. You could probably write a bit more about it, but it looks good, actually. Sometimes all a good game needs is the right spotlight. So check it out.

R - Elect-Nigma reviewed a game that should've been bought by everyone ever: Rayman Origins. Seriously, though; there's still time to buy this and beat it before Rayman Legends comes out. For like $20. Even if you don't like platformers. Give it as a gift. Oh and read the review.

T - A maybe SLIGHTLY sarcastic piece from Stavros SteviewGreek. He's not so keen on the Wii U and it's "features." But I will fistfight anyone that tries to deny me a little Balloon Fight.

T - nekobun took the time to properly appreciate Duke Nukem Forever. He thinks perhaps his time was wasted.

L - GlowBear has some ponderings on the book Reality Is Broken. It does indeed sound interesting and confusing. Any of you out there read it?

V - Honestly the vid is kinda rad. I'm not sure what's happening or why, other than a cool video, but the blog needs something. Like why you did this specifically, or how some behind-the-scenes stuff. Basically: post some damn words to go along with this, Please.

F - Too many typos. Oh also: fucking go away.

F - Johnel Lance finally remembered his password! Thank goodness he could pop in to tell us about his other site instead of re-intoducing himself.

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.
