LONG BLOG

C-C-C-C-blogs of 11/21, also starring Striderisms!

I'm hating this week so much.

Amount of hours was the last thing I was concerned with at work. But I have 35 hours this Thanksgiving week. I have 35 hours of work, a lack of feedback on the Fapcast, a disappointing game release, and 8 hours of driving to get through this weekend.

Let's start with the Fapcast. I spent an entire night editing it because we lost a track so I inserted fake voices to hold it up. What do I see for a whole night of devotion? ONE COMMENT. Well fuck, have we plateaued? Because editing this thing takes a lot of personal time. I'd love to use it on other things but nope! I'm using it staring at a screen and mixing audio levels!

Speaking of using time, I'm not used to working 3 days of 7 hour shifts in a row. I phrase it that way because you probably work long hours. But this is a part-time job, so fuck, where does the PART-TIME thing factor in? Jesus Mickey Mouse, you're a slave driver!



So games? I like diving back into BLOPS zombies. It even has rank progression now! But I bought the collector's edition of Adventure Time: Hey Ice King why'd you steal our garbage? I wasn't expecting something great but at least something good. But this? I bought this game yesterday and I beat it today. Probably less than 10 hours. I sat down less than 6 times with the intention of playing it. There are numerous other flaws I can forgive as far as a mediocre game goes. But I felt this length was inexcusable. And all I have now is New Game+. And the Collector's Edition.

Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to getting home and blasting hundreds of zombies after riding the bus across a god forsaken highway. Not to mention score streaks are a pretty ok way of earning our longtime killstreaks. I mean, sentry gun is finally good!

This week has been a little frustrating. I'll probably drive 4 hours to see my girlfriend and just spend the whole sleeping in bed with her, sleeping off this tough as balls week.

Be sure to check out episode 5 of the Fapcast because I don't think anyone caught our community question. I hope episode 6 is easy for once. Or maybe we won't do it. It's been a moody week. Plus I'm going to see my girlfriend Saturday. Do I have time? Historically, no, I don't have time. FOR ANYTHING.

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.
