LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 5-31-10 and Qalamarisms

Well tarnation, look at that there. If that don't beat all. We had a bumper crop of quality bloggin's today, yessiree. It may have been the holiday, or the weather, or some other permutation I can't think of at the moment, but you outdid yourselves today, ladies and gents. With some extra free time on your hands today, it seems as though many of you decided to work on your blogs. It was a busy day, so let's get to it. And if you spent some of your Memorial day playing a war game, first let the irony sink in, then make sure to thank a veteran.




*- Norm9 took a moment to remember the reason we had a holiday here in the U.S. today. To those who have served, we thank you.
*-I'm PROBABLY wrong, but I think this blog is about Stevil killing Funktastic and stealing his Playboys.
*-Guncannon proves that some music just works in any situation.
*-Nilcam offers some tips to improve yourself at the fightin' games. As he puts it, "It's part Sun Tzu, part psychological warfare."
*-Moobs-- Beyamor has'em. (Apparently.)
*-I don't agree with EternalDeathSlayer's rant here; personally, I avoid Activision products because I don't like their apparent contempt for gamers. And though I know full well that my decision not to purchase their wares is as ineffective as farting at Air Man, I won't condone their disrespect by giving them any of my money. However, he has every right to say what he did, and it touched off quite the debate in the comment section.
*-And a bit later, that debate continued with this blog, a fairly heady piece by Lazaro Cruz.
*- the hits keep on coming, and Golden Avenger drops some SCIENCE while praising one of history's greatest badasses, Nikola Tesla.


A-Sometimes, you just need to vent. I know you think it's bad now, Kinjiro, but it was arguably worse when GameStoppers knew nothing about their stock.
A-An open letter to PS3 developers asking that they not copy-protect their save files. Makes sense to me, that data's a lot less sensitive/valuable/worth stealing than the game code itself.
A-Alakaiser shares the story of how he fell out of, and back into love with fighting games. (It rhymes with "blooper meat spider war.")
A-Javidwashere details his affair with Atlus, from schoolboy crush to nightly penetration. (Was that too far? That may have been too far.)
M-For the final Musing this month, Enkido explored the different gaming paths his family has taken.
P-Podsumaki recorded earlier this evening.



I love this guy's channel.


F-Nilcam posted the weekly update for the PS3 fight club.
S-Doomsday Forte spent part of his vacation at a hospital. Sorry sir, hope your mom has a speedy recovery.


T-With some time to kill, HELI05 whomped up a list of unlikely sequels he'd love to see.
T-And Kytherno took time to educate us on one of the listed entries, Rogue Galaxy.
T-And another, the Metroid Prime series. Hm. Maybe HELI05 and Kytherno have a Tyler Durden/Jack thing goin' on.
R-Ruicraveirinha dissected Mass Effect 2 and found some things lacking in comparison to its predecessor.
R- Snowknight reviewed Super Mario Galaxy 2.
R-So'd Idrawrobots, who just finished the game with 120 stars.
D-RobotBebop's still working on a game, and has this progress report. Starting over must be a pain, but the results speak for themselves.
$-It may be worth your while to check Target's clearance section from time to time. Just sayin'.


A-A lovely tribute to some good people. Nice work, Jack Maverick.


V-A second trailer for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World has been released thanks to Facebook. Bathe in its radiance.
V-You know what? It does. It really does.
R-A plea from RetroSoldier to... honestly, I'm not even sure.
R-16bitJeff has been working on a Let's Play article for one of the first games I ever owned, Mega Man 4. Looking forward to it.
R-McFearsome is fearful of what the 'morrow may bring. Man up dude, it's only Alpha Protocol.
C-I don't give a fat crap about Modern Warfare 2, and I doubt very much I'm unique and alone in that sentiment. Never assume everyone in your audience thinks exactly the same way you do.


F- Yeah, no. But the picture Occam's posted in the comments? I want that on my wall.

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.
