Cblog recaps 11/02/08 +Randombullisms

Comic books, do you read them? No seriously, do you read comic books? I've always been a Marvel guy myself. Not that I hate DC, I just like Marvel more. Superhero comic books are fun, but my favorite ones seem to feature less spandex these days. Like Transmetropolitan, Preacher, or The Walking Dead. Yeah, I still read a ton of super hero books, but those three are great examples of non-superhero comics. It seems like most people who hear comic book think superhero.

Still the best comic book to pick up right now is "The Boys" published by Dynamite. Only somewhat related to super heroes. The Boys is a mature audience title about a secret government agency that investigate super heroes. Some really great stuff in there. If you think Sam Jackson as Ultimate Nick Fury was a great comic cameo, wait until you see who the main character of The Boys looks like. I'm guessing you're a fan of Sean of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, so you'll notice the similarity quickly.

If you want something else to read, pick up The Walking Dead. If you like zombie stuff at all, you should be reading The Walking Dead. I've been with it for a long time, great series. If I bought people gifts, I would buy them the first trade paperback of The Walking Dead. It is still ongoing, so be sure to take a look!

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.
