LONG BLOG

CBlog o' 9/2/13 + MacMangasms

My apologies for being MIA last week, I had to make a business trip to Philly and boy do I not like cheesesteaks with cheese wiz on them. 



SO

Couple things to chat with you lovely people about. Firstly, I saw The World's end and loved, loved, loved it. It could very well be the finest installment of the Cornetto trilogy, which I was unaware until this movie was a thing. Apparently in each movie someone is eating a Cornetto or at the very least one is referenced. Each colour of the wrapper relates to the theme of the movie. Really cool stuff. It's inspired me to go back and look out for them in the other movies when I can finally find the DVDs.



And HUGE guys. I've been thinking a lot about it and I really like the idea of it. It reminds me a lot of how PSN+ is at the moment. It gives you things instead of putting things already in place behind a paywall.  I'll probably extrapolate more on the subject when I join in a community blog dedicated to it.

I also caved and pre-ordered GTAV. I had great hesitation toward it because I actually didn't like GTAIV. It took much of the silliness that I enjoyed about the series and did away with it. It was too silly and lacked the spirit of GTAIII that I loved so much. To me, it wasn't the spiritual successor that it was touted to be. I am excited for the fifth installment though. It looks as though they will be bringing some of the old style back.



What are your thoughts on.. the hodgepodge of shit I talked about?

Let's recap

* - Some nice words about Dtoid inspired by the inception of HUGE.

* - Callusingy asks why Ryse deserves the hate it does in the finely written piece.

A - Grey-ee needs to flush this idea out a little more. I'd love to see him elaborate.

A - Malfy-ee's thoughts on launch day experimentation.

T - Suuda-ee coming at you with some Racing the Sun impressions. Digging this art style.

R - Some quick reviews for you a la Boomy

T - Dusty wasn't as taken with Saints Row as he thought he'd be. A fine blog on expectations.

R - Kingy reviews the Walking Dead Episode 1. Not sure that this game is for me but I love the idea of it.





L - P0RNZ

L - Some commentary vids if you're in the mood for a laugh.

F - Do you even lift?

S - As I say at least once a week, write a blog about your video. Otherwise it's just spam I'm too hungover to make a half-decent joke about.

Yesterday's Pitt tailgate will be the death of me...

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.
