LONG BLOG

C Blogs Of 10/01/13 + mcgeeisms

Long time, no CAP! I'm filling in for Wrenchfarm while he spreads the good word of the Mech around the countryside.

I've been up to the usual lately: trying all the different candy corn I can find. For review purposes, of course. I've made my through some caramel apple-flavored candy corn, and today I'll be busting open a Starburst branded cob. The texture seems fine, but I'm having a hard time imagining how it meshes with fruity flavor.
Towards the end of October, I'll probably have a big roundup of my criticisms so everybody can decide what kind of Corn to stock for their parties/trick-or-treaters. It's an important decision to have to make, and I want to help people be properly informed. So please, if there's a CC you want to see covered, or just have a favorite to suggest, feel free!

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get back to being disconnected from Grand Theft Auto Online. Good to CAP again :)







C - pk fire wants to start a new community project: Musicians Wanted. For those familiar with Bloggers Wanted or Artists Wanted, this is exactly what you think it is. What says you, community? Is this a good idea? Would you participate?

N - zerocrossing sums up the Mighty No. 9 campaign in this one from his personal blog. They reached over $4 million by the time it finished!!

T - TheDustinThomas doesn't want games using the term "Game of the Year Edition" without some actual accolades to back it up. It is pretty obnoxious. ISN'T THAT RIGHT, DEAD ISLAND??

V - JordanLloyd traverses the Eurogamer Expo floor, and tries out all the new things. Check it out!

A - Words fail Panzadolphin56, so instead he put his empty feelings into one Art that expresses the inner confusion caused by Dead Space 3.

C - Alasdair Duncan continues his backlog quest, although you would never know it because he cannot format or use the preview function :P You can still tell what the choices are by the pictures, so there's that!

V - MiB1231 is participating in Extra Life! Good man. Check out his video and donation page, as he supports Children's Miracle Network by playing games for 25 hours straight.

F - JackSlack is a PC thug, and I won't tolerate it.

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.
