C Blogs of 4/24/10 and 4/25/10 + SilverDragonisms

Earlier this week I got an email from Amazon.com informing me that I had been invited into the Starcraft 2 Beta since I had pre-purchased a copy of the $100 Collector's Edition earlier this month. To say that I jumped up from my computer and screamed for joy like a little school girl would be putting my reaction mildly. Let's just say that I've been waiting for Starcraft 2 for a REALLY REALLY long time.

So I began playing the beta on Thursday night and I think I have become completely addicted. Last night I played till 3:30AM in the morning. When I finally decided to go to bed I couldn't actually sleep because I kept thinking about different strategies in my head. It eventually got so bad that I woke up and went back to my computer to play until 6AM in the morning. I haven't played a game till 6AM in the morning EVER ..... in my entire life .... and I'm 30, so that's a really fucking long life of gaming. Before this I think 4AM was the latest I ever stayed up playing a game.

Suffice to say, I am pretty sure I'm completely in love with Starcraft 2. The funny thing is, I completely suck at the game. I probably only win 25% of the matches I play online, so most of my time spent playing this game, is spent getting my ass kicked, yet I still enjoy it. That's just a testament to how incredible Starcraft 2 is. If any of you are even remotely interested in this game, I recommend you go preorder it and pick up a beta key and try it out. If you do look me up. My in-game email is: [email protected]

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.
