C Blogs of 03/16/13 + 03/17/13 + 03/18/13 + mcgeeisms

   0

Hello again, ladies and gents of Dtoid. Due to some technical issues, the weekend CAPS were, uh, deleted and stuff, so I'm covering for Phil and stuffing the weekend and Monday blogs together. As such, I haven't really had time to write any isms, and...OH LOOK! The UPS man just showed up with my copies of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate! HNNNNNGGGGG

Yeah, isms are dead. Time to HUNT!!!
Great blogs over the last 3 days, guys. Let's take a look.
CAPS for Kayumba:


* - SeymourDuncan17 lays out what needs to happen for Saints Row IV to be better than The Third. Someone listen to this man. Please.

A - TheKodu is still excited for OUYA. Read why. (Sex games maybe?) I still think the thing has potential, despite them trying to shoot themselves in the foot at every turn.

A - Saydmell Salazar of POstuidios wrote this blog about art & work, and asks for some help in supporting others in the indie community.

A - On the "evolution" of our beloved games; The Steamdriven.

? - "Im Egypt." Is Facebook always like this? burningsoup posts some drivel from a post on GoW: Ascension having Leonidas in it.

F - I honestly haven't watched the video. I'm just failing it because all Jordan has done is post his videos with no other substance. At least introduce yourself, sir.

F - This one is going in Failtoid, too. I don't have time to watch it and there is only a video with nothing else.

F - An interesting thought on just why The Phantom Pain is named as such, with the assumption that it is in fact MGS5. Also, I'm pretty sure I've seen this guy actually write some stuff. I know you can do better, Vito!

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.
