LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 8/14/10 and 8/15/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So I've taken a break from Starcraft 2 to read the cblogs and present you with this recap. I'm honestly not sure how much longer I'm going to be playing the game as hardcore as I have been. I've probably put in well over 100 hours in the last 3 weeks, and I'm kind of getting burned out on it. Besides playing tons and tons of multiplayer, I'm presently spending lots of time playing through the single player campaign again on a harder difficulty setting. Once I'm done with that, I'll probably be spending a lot less time with the game.

A lot of my friends were shocked when I posted my official review last week on Gamer Limit and I didn't give it a perfect 10. I mean don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the game, but there are a few small flaws that kept it from the perfect 10 score. If Blizzard could make a couple of tweaks to the multiplayer balance I think it could be perfect.

The next big I'm looking forward to at this point it Metroid: Other M. I really wanted to play it at E3 this year, but the line was typically well over an hour long and I didn't want to waste that much time waiting for a game that was coming out in only a few months. Rest assured, I'm super excited about this game and can't wait to dive into it.

Well, I think that's enough about me for one night. Let's get on with the weekend recaps shall we.

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.
