Cblog recaps - 11/16/08 + Randombullisms

   0

Hey guys. I played Fallout 3 for two weeks. In the pursuit of a job as a games journalism work, I wrote a Fallout 3 review. I pointed out some problems I had with it and my experiences with the game. I've got a lot of stuff written out and nearly finished for the cblogs. Old school games returns! With a new name! Hooray! Everyday this week I'll have a new post! Also this week I'll post a review of Conan on xbox 360! If I can finish the game and my review that is.

Also Tuesday is the day I want to finish Bonerquest! I'm going to try to spend all day working on it and hopefully get it done. I've selected a handful of people to test the game. I tried to pick people that I knew better than others that were a little more responsible and honest. I don't want Bonerquest to be insanely difficult or a complete cake walk. Also have to find out if the game is too crazy. Sorry to those of you that wanted to try it out first. It isn't quite ready yet for everyone to try out, but maybe soon.

Have to hook up the playstation one this week some replays. Megaman 8, we meet again! I'm going to put off buying any new games until next week. I also have to avoid putting Final Fantasy Tactics anywhere near my playstation. I don't have 200 hours to spend getting calculators again.

I want to switch to Mondays from the weekends. Also recappers please, please use the final post of the day option. I hate having to decipher what was recapped and what wasn't. I just had to guess today and I got confused and thought there were only five posts yesterday. So yeah. Pretty please with sugar on top post the final post of the day. If not here than in the recap thing. Even if I can never figure out my login information I still get e-mails telling me what gets posted. If that's okay with the recap team. My schedule has changed and this week I'm in a position so that I could do the Monday night recap. So just hit me with a private message or an e-mail.

Other then that, if you guys catch me on live I'm up for playing stuff anytime. Just ask. Still haven't found someone to play Marvel Ultimate Alliance with. Okay, that's it for me.

Any errors in tonight's recap, grammatical, typographical, or bbcodde, I will fix later this morning. Hopefully.

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.
