Cblog recaps 11/23/08 + Randombullisms

   0

Dependable old weekend recaps on a Monday morning. Who doesn't love that? Sorry about my attitude yesterday I was running late that morning, I had worked a full shift the day before, and was trying to get all my stuff together. It isn't exactly easy putting these things together, and I apologize for not being able to post this last night.

About to play a few rounds of Call of Duty 4 then finish up a review I'm writing for another game. Still putting off hooking my playstation one up.

And here you go, your starting line up on the Destructoid recaps! YAL READY FOR THIS DOO DOO DEET DEET DOO DOO DEET. DUNT DUNT DUNT DUH! YAL READY FOR THIS!?


*- Free Dr. Pepper. I didn't sign up but was aware of this. Oh well.
*- All I saw was "Mother F- Nintendo" and I knew this post should be put in the top picks. I've imagined this to be a hilarious post about how angry this poster is at Nintendo. I can't wait to read it later.


A- Someone is organizing what they want to write on their blog. Good luck.
A- Something about a toilet and video games.
M- Monthly Musing: Banjo Kazooie
S- Castlevania 2 from Random Select series.
S- Mega Man 7 from Random Select series.




D- A long time member has a death in his family. Everyone put him in your prayers.
D- Another Destructoid member is dealing with a death in the family. Again, our prayers go out to you in your time of grief.
E- Miami Narp
E- Another Miami Narp post. Also possible Gears 2 spoilers, if I find out that what they said is in the game, I will probably not care.
E- A third post about the Miami Narp. I won't read this one, that last one told me way more than I ever wanted to know.
I- A new members introduction post. Welcome to Destructoid, I love you.
?- Miss Jim all you want, he's American now. I for one would like to welcome our new english overlord.


R- A Gears 2 review.
R- Another gears 2 review.
S- Short blog about gears 2.
T- Fallout 3 Disappointments
T- Another Nintendo post. From the opening lines, it implies they're angry. It helps that I read everything this poster writes like a cartoon parody of the X-men.
T- It says Spoiler Free thoughts on Fable 2, but I won't risk reading about it at all.
V- A posters little brother made a half life 2 video.
V- Chrono Trigger video advertisements.
?- Something about Pokemon
?- Something about Game Informer
?- This member wants to play Left 4 Dead once a week.
?- Something about the Zune playing games.


A- Art dump.
A- Gamer arts and crafts sale
A- Game charms. Also as far as I can tell this is a new member, so welcome to Destructoid! Also according to the comments and context clues on their profile, their a female gamer. No pictures of themselves. No plugs over and over for other websites they write on. More girls should post like this.


F- Post about Old Boy with WILL SMITH.
N- Someone killed them self on a web cam. A destructoid member writes some reactions. Comments aren't bad to read either.
?- Podcast needs someone else. I guess this goes in other.


No fail on Sunday. Just like hard liquor.

My avatar is evolving...

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.
