C-Blog recaps of 12/22/12 + 12/23/12 + I'm dreaming of white Philgasms

Did you miss me?



How about now?.... WELL FINE! I missed you though :(

HOLY CRAP I'M BACK! Damn have I missed you fine folks. What's happened in the month I've been gone? The worlds ended twice, Christmas is tomorrow, people are pointing blame everywhere (but where they should), GOTY awards and lists up the wazoo, that one thing with the guy... LOTS OF STUFFS! We're not here for any of that though. You folks are here for some sexy caps regarding this past weekend, aren't you? AREN'T YOU? TELL ME THE TRUTH MARTHA! Moving on....

Before I cap this place up and down (and possibly all around, haven't made my mind up yet), let's sit down and chat. Where has ole Phil been? Now, you probably don't care, but fuck you. I'm telling it anyway. I was in the process of moving to my new (and ballah) house, when that big ass storm hit Sacramento. The one with the flooding? Yeah, that one. Well guess who had his phone/cable lines trashed in said storm? That's right: Charles Duncan. But also me! Since so much damage happened, I've had wait forever for AT&T to get out here and fix it all. Then I had to wait for them to fix their fuck up that they made doing that. Then... anyways, now I'm here. With you all. As I should be. Your hive mind sex god has missed you and is no longer hindered by only being on a phone. Let's do some capping shall we?



*- ManWithNoName is sick of your whining. STOP WHINING! No, he didn't say that. I'm stuck in Arnold mode after Jingle All The Way.
*- Alphadeus drops the music of 2012 on our asses. Boosh.
*- EpicKx gives us his best for 2012 and does a damn fine job of it. I was going to fail him out of spite, but fuck it. It's Christmas. Merry X-Mas Silky.

P- These assho...HEY GUYS! It's episode 6 of Scary Granules! Ooooo it's X-Masy and reeks of pine too....
A- A very entertaining read on Ground Zeroes by Bory Borham. Featuring some MG history and speculation on where it's headed!
S- Marcunio88 continues with day 9 of her 12 days of X-Mas games. Today: Limbo
A- ManWithNoName drops an interesting piece about Brazil's grey market of games. I appreciate folks with grey that get a Brazilian.



E- Weekend Warriors continues and no one plays Monaco with me. F%^K YOU GUYS.
C- Kwamouflage returns with Zentoid 2: We gamers are killers. I dig the layout. Nice.
S- A very cool tale of what Rock Band is to Bigboss0110.
C- Jetpacksheep gives us a good write-up about always on DRM.

R- Ctate95 busts out a timely review of NFS: Hot Pursuit
V- SirTobbii gives out his soundtrack of the year award and looks like a sexy Fassbender on heroin while doing it.
P- Ctate95 gives us an in-depth look at Elder Scrolls Online. Nope. Not for me.
V- A Pringles Radview of Guild Wars. This does not look easy to make.
T- Sven Wohl shares his overlooked in '12 list.

M- Johnel Lance shares some VG Christmas songs with us all.

C- TheKodu spreads some truth, but needs better formatting and spell checking and flow.
C- WOWitsAwombat needs an intro blog and a longer, more thought out blog period.
R- Kwamouflage gives us Oldtoid. Holy shit, weird doesn't even cover it.


F- I tried not to fail anyone, but GODDAMMIT Esteban, you at least have to type SOMETHING! FFS man.



Wasn't that special? Darn tootin' it was. You folks go have a Merry Christmas or Holiday or whatever. I've got some kids I need to make happy and some Don't Starve to play and blog about. Also, keep your eyes peeled for a special X-Mas Low(er) Tier Podcast episode coming up. It's got a lot of presents :)

Merry X-Mas my virtual family, I love you all. Even you Smurfee. Kind of.... ;)

Make 'em bounce now!

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.
