LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 01/14/14 + Wrenchisms

   0




I had a Maxistentialism night yesterday. To celebrate my brother's birthday we got together with the girlfriends, tacos, Samurai Gunn, Nidhogg, and Cards Against Humanity. And maybe some booze.

It was pretty sweet.

I started writing some thoughts about the games for my -isms, but they quickly expanded into something I'd rather write a proper blog about. But here are a few key things you should know -

- Samurai Gunn is the most fun four people, 12 bullets, and a bunch of sharp objects can have together.

- Nidhogg is gorgeous, deep, and lets you throw a sword at your brother's face (GOTY potential).

- Cards Against Humanity is still providing proof positive that we are all terrible, terrible, people deep down.



I'm going to try real hard now to organize my thoughts into a proper blog before work tonight so you don't all feel short shrifted for nothing. But for now, do yourself a favour and download both Samurai Gunn and Nidhogg, dust off your rolodex, and call some people up for a games night. You won't regret it.

* - I don't know, the dudes on the cover or Rival Turf look pretty badical.

A - So Strider is collecting these so called "pocket monsters" now? What an obscure hobby!

A - Wow, there is certainly quite a bit of scholarly debate about the proper rearing of these "pocket monsters". There is a lengthy rebuttal in the comments that is probably more illuminating than the blog itself.

P - Another gaming podcast! Sadly, the blogs formatting is a little messy and hard to read.



C - Alphadeus could use a hand organizing the story for his concept album. Check it out and see if you're interested.



R - Some personal blogging by Titannel. His grandma sounds rad, and he made a WISE decision picking up Flashback on Genesis, and the underrated SNES port of Wing Commander. That's some good classic gaming.

R - Whatsacow is another victim of the Dtoid blog editor. Don't worry about it man, that thing is a massive pain in the butt to everybody.

V - A new Let's Play team is taking a crack at this YouTube thing. The post starts with a neg criticizing the typically low attention span of the average internet dweller, kind of guilting you into reading the rest of it. Fun times for sure!

L - Is this the part where I'm supposed to be snarky and ask why you'd want to play DmC at all, let alone be first at it?

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.
