LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 12/23/13 + a quick word

   0

Sometimes us Dtoiders need each others' help. Usedtabe is making the call for another Dtoider who wishes to remain anonymous. You can't blame them. Some conditions are more embarrassing than others, even if it's not your fault. It's totally understandable. Used is looking for some donations to get this person to a doctor, and even stuff like games to take his/her mind off of things. If you're in the holiday spirit, please help if possible.

One of the things this community prides itself on is being more than just avatars to each other.

Check it out here and please consider helping.

* - Titannel shares with us his favorite Christmas moment: the Xmas his parents surprised him with a Dreamcast. I may or may not have shed a couple tears reading this sweet blog.

* - Justin Villasenor's top 10 Chocobo themes. Oh yes.

P - Communitoid episode 26, with special guest OpiumHerz! Listen to Joanna's last full episode :(



I - LReiviN isn't new, but this is his first blog. He's looking to do some art commissions (quite talented I see!) or to have y'all check out his game he's working on. He may or may not draw you some Jonathan Holmes porn, as well. Check it out if you're looking for a new piece or just want to help out.

I - say hello to anthonyacc! He's a big Twitch streamer, and was interested in posting because of the...positivitey as of late. (yeah let's keep that going, right?)

T - zerocrossing has a lovely list of 5 Christmas-themed games to try out!

V - Historicnerd has a video about the not-so-good SNES game Supergodzilla, and includes some cool Godzilla facts.

V - The Game Corner talks about Pokemon Snap, probably.

A - BeatBeat switches it up a bit for this comic; it's very heartwarming and embodies what is so enjoyable about the holidays. It also features Animal Crossing characters, and Isabelle as the Christmas tree top. SO CUTE!

L - Alex Barbatsis drops in to say hello and post a very timely Black Eyed Peas parody.

F - The sentiment is interesting, but the post isn't.

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.
