LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 6/26/10 and 6/27/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

After my 10 day hiatus to Los Angeles and E3, Iím back in action recapping the weekend cblogs. I have to tell you that it feels great to be back, but I already miss all the awesome people I met last week during E3. Thereís so much to tell you all about, but unfortunately I donít really have time right now. I do plan on posting a couple of Cblogs to recap my incredible week, as well as to share some pictures of my experiences. Be on the lookout for those sometime this coming week.

I want to send a major shout out to Cadtalfryn for covering my butt while I was away. He did an absolute awesome job handling the weekend recaps. I actually got to meet him at the Scott Pilgrim Dtoid party while I was in LA, and Iím so glad I had the opportunity. Not only did I have a blast hanging out with the guy, he was also nice enough to drive me, Sean Carey, and Andrew Kauz back to our hotel room at the end of the night when we were drunk. We even ran into some trouble with the law on our way back, but Cadtalfryn was able to get out of it without any trouble at all.

I also got to meet a ton of other Dtoiders while I was in LA, including Jim Sterling, Chad Concelmo, Ben Perlee, Hamza, Hollie Bennet, Puppylicks, Technophile, and the list goes on and on and on. There are honestly too many to name here. Like I said, I plan on talking more about my adventures later this week when I get around to posting my E3 blogs. Just know that last week was one of the best weeks of my entire life. Iíll never forget it.

Before I go, let me just rant a second about a new article I posted today on Gamer Limit. The article itself is about 3D gaming on the PS3 and how, after trying it at E3, Iím very disappointed with what Iíve seen so far. The article is a huge success right now, with tons and tons of hits, but the only people whoíve commented are angry Sony fanboys who want to crucify me. I honestly donít know how Jim puts up this kind of shit. Do these people even take the time to read my article? Iím trying to not let it bother me, but after a while it just begins to wear me a bit thin. Ugh, oh well.

Thatís enough about me for one week. Now letís get to your regularly scheduled weekend recaps.

*-Jonathan Holmes posts every single video he did this year at E3. The man is an E3 video GOD! I had the chance to meet him in the press room, but everytime I saw him he was busy as hell editing video.

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.
