LONG BLOG

C-Blogs of 16/09/09 +Cadtalfrisms

   0


Hey everyone. I haven’t been around much to fill in lately, but here are some c-blog recaps that are actually rather punctual for a change.

I have been a bit busy as of late: moving into a new house, being back at college and getting a shiny new PS3 have consumed a lot of my time. I recently went to a Dtoid LA NARP for the first time where I met Chad Concelmo. I met the Pokemon Trainer from There Will Be Brawl the other day. We were drunk. I just finished inFAMOUS...which is as fun as it was shit, much like Mirror's Edge is as amazing as it was awful, but perhaps I'm just jaded.

The recapping team has had a bit of a rough week, so I decided to put this ahead of the other things I need to get done tonight...so I hope you loveable bastards enjoy. Now, I would love to do nothing more than veg out for the rest of the evening playing Bit Trip or Mirror’s Edge, but I’ll be working into the wee hours creating a topographical map of my town with geographic information system software.

Tonight is going to be fun.




*-Blehman is caught in a love triangle
*-MegaStryke looks back at Onimusha Blade Warriors…if Resident Evil, Samurai’s and Super Smash Bros got thrown into a blender would the game be any good? The answer may surprise you.

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.
