LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 5/01/10 and 5/02/10 + Cadtalfrisms

Firstly, I would like to give a big ‘Thank You’ to Silverdragon1979 for doing the weekend recaps. You’re awesome doing this every week and I would like to salute you for it.

This past week I’ve been playing a lot of Killzone 2. I just unlocked the Scout so I have been having some fun with that.

In other news, some dick on Goozex is trying to get me banned for accidentally sending him Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life instead of Another Wonderful Life. Apparently a simple mistake on my part, and failing to give in to his blackmailing, equates a banning in his mind. Apparently I made his little girl cry because she got the wrong Harvest Moon and wasted 200 of Daddy's points. Hopefully that all turns out okay and I just get the negative feedback instead of losing my account and all that credit I have built up.

I also finished Dante’s Inferno and started playing it a second time. It’s an awesome game and I can’t stop thinking about it.

With that I'll leave you to the recaps...

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.
