LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 5/15/10 and 5/16/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Iím not sure if anyone has noticed, but it has been almost six months to the day since Iíve actually written a Dtoid community blog. Sure I do the recaps every weekend, but I havenít actually written a real blog since Christmas Eve of 2009. You might think this is because I spend all my time writing for Gamer Limit, but I havenít written for them much lately either. The last review I wrote was for God of War 3, and besides that Iíve only done a couple news posts here and there.

The main reason I havenít had any time to write the last six months is because Iíve been working my ass off trying to finish graduate school. Well, Iím happy to announce that as of this weekend, I have officially graduated college, again, with my Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering. Iíve been going back to school now at nights for 5 years, while still working 40+ hours a week at my job, and all that pain and suffering has finally come to an end. I have to admit that itís an incredibly good feeling to finally have that goal accomplished and out of the way.

Now that Iím done I can finally get back to playing games and writing reviews. Actually, Iím working on a review right now for Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. Unfortunately Iím under NDA so I canít talk about it, but if you are interested you should check out Gamer Limit on Tuesday for my review. If you are interested in the game youíll definitely want to read it.

Well I hope everyone had a good weekend. Before I go I just want to give a shout out to the school I just graduated from: North Carolina State University. Iíve given that school 10 years of my life, and tens of thousands of dollars, and I donít regret a second of any of it.

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.
