LONG BLOG

C-blogs of 01-22-09 and ScottyGasms

   0

After reading RiotMonster's cblog, I have to ask a question to the community (staff too if you read this): How many of you see your games like this? As things you just have to play though so you can get to the next one, and check off another line on a list. Do you find it impedes on your enjoyment of the game, and gaming in general? Or do you prefer the sense of accomplishment at having played/beaten that many games?

It's pretty darn late and I NEED some sleep (FNF is going to be tough...), but hopefully I'll make a full cblog around that question Friday or Saturday. Think about the question though, and how you play your games.

Also, it's good to see the Dtoid forums will be back up and running soon. I was just starting to get back into them too when they went down. As is always the case with a forum redesign, I'm scared that they will just over complicate things by making a ton of sub-forums, one for every conceivable subject.


*- Serendipity experiences the joy of online PC gaming with TF2. Now pay attention to my cblog for TFT/FNF updates!
*- That brought back some old wrestling memories. Never followed much outside of North America sadly until shortly before I stopped following it

S- Newest episode of HAWP is out. Good to see that after a lull they're getting funny again
S- BSD's latest shirt, of Dtoid fame. I never got any stickers when I ordered my Dtoid shirts... :'(
S- This time around watch michiyoyoshiku play Metal Slug 6
P- Latest episode of The College Gamer podcast

S- Grim needs to dream less about the forums and more about his hot wife. Also, he's friends with himself :S
C- Krow asks what game he should finally beat next. I say he's a god damn failure at life until he's beaten Super Mario World. Would you agree? ;)
S- Phalanxxx realizes iPods are fragile, overpriced pices of crap. Thankfully no real loss as it eventually started working again
S- Technophile spoils the surprise about the new forums, much to Hamza's chagrin

S- Baby pictures, health scares, and Thornnn actually with some clothes on

L- BSD informs us on how to mess with programmable road signs


F- Not only a copy/pasta blog (which I thought were kind of copyright infringement), but pasta'd twice...
C- A copy/pasta blog that throws out some serious accusations with little supporting facts. Regardless of validity that's a fail cblog in my book
S- Awesome yet terrifying L4D Macho Man mod. Has been posted many times though
F- Fail blog, but even more fail comments. Kudos to Garison for not being a pile of wank though

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.
