LONG BLOG

C Blogs of 8/28/10 and 8/29/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

So something REALLY REALLY big happened in my life this weekend, but I don't want to mention what it is yet here, because I plan to make an entire post about it. For now I'll just leave you all wondering what it is I'm talking about ....

I do need to mention that while I've been obsessing over Starcraft 2 the past month or so, I'm sorry to say that's all about to come to an end. I'll be taking a break from it, starting Tuesday, to play Metroid: Other M. I'm reviewing the game for Gamer Limit and I need to try and get through it as fast as possible. As soon as that's done with though I'll be back to my old stomping grounds in Starcraft 2.

Anyways, I don't really have much else to say right now. This was a crazy and awesome weekend and I can't wait to make a post telling everyone all about it. Until then, enjoy these weekend recaps.

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.
