LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 07/02/10 + Mousisms

Hey, everyone, how was your week? Mine was pretty cool, I didn't play much games, but my girlfriend came back from Ireland so I'm pretty much happy.

More World Cup news. After an abysmal display, England are out of the World Cup. I will say that it is a travesty that Lampard's goal was disallowed, but it still probably wouldn't have made too much of a difference. Oh well. Cue 40 years of "The Stolen Goal Scandal".

There were two games yesterday, Holland vs Brazil, and Uruguay vs Ghana. I personally found Holland vs Brazil a bit boring, but it was good to see somebody beat Brazil at last. Uruguay vs Ghana was just spectacular. It had everything really - goals, saves, handballs and penalties. It was sad to see Ghana go out but they had a really good chance to win the game which they sadly failed to take.

Today's videos are something that I found through RiotMonster. I assume that a few of you will already be familiar with these videos, but they are very funny. [EDIT: For some reason, it won't let me embed the video. Have a link instead.

Finally, today was a pretty bog-standard day for the blogs. Good Topsauces, a ton of Wordtoid, and unfunny fails. Enjoy.

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.
