C-Blog recaps of 1/12/13 + 1/13/13 + (Phil)gasms

   0




I'm feeling baller y'all. I don't know why. Maybe it's this big ass house. This new puppy I got (not a puppy, 3yr old yellow lab), maybe it's my new video card (Not that new at all, but to me it is) and all these games I can run now (Like 13 titles I owned and couldn't play, just BAM!), I don't know. I'm just feeling on top of the world right now. The only thing I can complain about is the fucking Maloofs finally getting their wish to sell the Sacramento Kings. Fucking team killing, greedy assclowns. Worse than god damn Smurfee.

Anyone seen that little blue bastard? Worries me when I don't see him around for a few days. He's probably lurking in some alley, shaving innocent cats nipples. That guy.... man.

What have you all been playing lately? I'm really loving L4D2 on PC at the moment. IT COMES WITH ALL THOSE CAMPAIGNS! Like wow. Then all the user created stuff on top of that? Safe to say, I've fully joined the master race again, after a 8 year absence. Just too many good deals and too much bullshit with consoles now days. But that aside, L4D2 for sure and of course everyone knows my deep love affair with Don't Starve. There is a new update for that Tuesday and after the turf building from last week, I'm very excited to see what's in store. I'll be posting another diaries blog about it soon (because you totally care). Well, that's enough baller blabbing from me, on with the caps!

*- Ccesarano discusses east coast expos and the awesome times he had there.
*- Part 4 of Tim333's Dragon Quest series. The time and detail put into this blog series impresses.
*- You HAVE to see Dao2-SKP's amazing setup. Not to mention the awesome contest he is running.
*- Strider takes on a long beautiful journey through 2012. Only thing that's missing? XCOM MOTHERF***ER!
*- Patrick Hancock is one of my favorite front pagers at Destructoid. He plays the stuff I play. Here is an amazing list, of amazing games coming in 2013.

A- Snealiv throws out a great write up on Nvidia's thingamajigger and some of the challenges it faces. Looks like a folding xbox. Not 360 either. O.G.
P- The Low(er) Tier delivers episode 4: Deadly Serious and another contest! I HAVE NO PERSONAL INTEREST IN THIS, BUT YOU SHOULD TOTALLY LISTEN.
A- Nekobun shares a great write up explaining streaming, the ways to get into it and more! Great stuff.

F- SkidRow Trash says to check out this movie: Stakeland. I heard Fallout meets vampires.... is there a New Vegas mod for that?

C- Osga21 strikes out with me again. talking about Valve this time.

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.
