LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 01/20/14 + mcgeeisms

   0

As per the usual lately, these will be short -isms because I'm doing other things. I had a couple topics I thought maybe I would touch on, like Nintendo losing money, or how cool the Vita is, or how amazing Super Hexagon is, or some other stuff. BUT, I shouldn't spend too much time on this. Hopefully next week will be a bit different.

For now I will fall asleep while listening to the Blood Dragon OST.
CAPS in the house.


Tonight's filler theme isn't too hard to surmise.

* - RenaudB90 sits down with a certain Nintendo high-up and gets the dope on their budding new business structure. The strain of the Wii U sales should be vaporized by this new joint venture.

* - taterchimp takes a look at the trends of some of Steam's top games. It's really interesting to see how things can change for a game even in short periods of time. Semi-soft data FTW.

S - Better On Holiday gets through some more games for his NY resolution. Super Mario Galaxy 2 garners a deserved A+

A - MrPopadopoulis tells us why  we should experience Unearthed, even though it's a technically terrible game.



F - Everyday Legend made a new Steam group for Dtoiders to easily find each other, especially for fighting games. What's it called? D.I.C.K.S.

V - BitofaGeek takes a lighter look at the ugly side of modern gaming: DLC, patches and the like. What of other things (like tea kettles) used the same business model?

T - kellyjean was so put off by the advertising of Bioshock Infinite that she didn't play it. Read to see why. Pretty interesting perspective.

T - SpielerDad weighs in on Nintendo's recent financial troubles. Would Nintendo partner up with a competitor?

T - I couldn't agree more: copilotlindy stops to take in some beautiful visuals. Do you smell the roses, or trample them in pursuit of some...goal?

M - OpiumHerz shares with us a ton of German music that we should check out. Have some culture!



F - hauntedcoinop's performance art.

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.
