LONG BLOG

Cblog recaps 11/29/08 +Randombullisms

   0

I'm going to try and recap todays blogs, based off of the opening lines. Lets hope I'm accurate as possible! If I made a major mistake, can someone else look over my shoulder and fix it for me? Thanks a lot. Hey can you get that? Thanks a lot.

Oh hey, Bonerquest had a test version get passed around. I heard it wasn't working now to download it, so I guess those that have it are playing it and seemingly enjoying it. Some places not as much as the others, but I'm getting some good feedback. Also cocks. No really. It seems some areas are full of random battles, the dialog is funny, and I guess the game is playable. Rather difficult to install, but once you get past that, you're ready to rock with some old school style role playing action. One fella described it to me in an message as being like zelda and pokemon mixed with my type of humorous nature. You know, dick and fart jokes. I've been told I do that well. Course, I've also been told that Destructoid recaps are important and that everyone reads them. Does anyone ever read these posts I write here? I'm sure one guy does. You're awesome sir. Or lady even. Thanks for reading my posts. I try to read peoples posts, but often times now I'm so busy with stuff. I can just sort of skim over things.

Just in case you missed it in our chat, I've bought some new games on the xbox three hundred and sixty. I'm now part of the Gears 2, Fable 2, and Saints Row 2 club. If any of you wish to play some of those, my gametrag is the same as my name. (randombullseye just in case you don't know who I am. Which saying that makes me think of the Juggernaut cartoon.)


I guess I didn't pick anything today. Some decent posts today, I might read through some of the Chrono Trigger DS posts. Maybe.


A- This post is about an HDTV and I think something about their xbox as well. Don't know what catagory or section to put it in, so article under word it is.


C- SSF2HD Tournament for you playstation three fellas.


?- Retroforce GO music fans check out this post. Someone has something in mind that involves retroforce and music.


N- Playstation 3 has new dual shock charger and wireless keypad coming out. Says it has a video in the blog title.
R- Mirrors Edge review
R- Review of Chrono Trigger DS
T- Something about 2008s video games, I think.
T- Chrono Trigger DS something about it.
T- Another Chrono Trigger post, from someone that hasn't played it before.
V- TF2 Mass AI
V- Fallout 3 video. Sounds like it might be about dancing or something. Perhaps it is humorous?
?- I want to say this is about Street Fighter 2 and that new version of it, but maybe not. Sure seems like it from the little description in the opening lines. I like how destructoid has that.


A- A community member is doing a comic.
F- ShiMoNi continues with Leonord Part Six. Swat Kats, Megas XLR, and Pokemon also mentioned.
?- Something arrived from Canada.
?- Someone went to Japan on a field trip or something. I assume this is the first of many posts about that trip.


V- Destructoid's editor in chief is old.
V- A post about a video taking someone back to their childhood. I put it in other, assuming it was an other related video post.
?- Something about Linux. I don't know exactly what they're talking about.
?- Made a robot aparantly.
?- Another website needs help or something.


I guess I didn't fail anything either today. Some stuff seemed less interesting than others, but just for politeness sake and that nothing seemed glariingly fail, I guess there wasn't any.

-(randombullseye)

Hopefully I can devote some more of my free time towards Bonerquest. If you're curious where Random SElect was yesterday, I won't be doing it for a few weeks. I want to get Bonerquest finished and then concentrate on doing the blog thing. Unless of course someone hires me to do blogs proffesionally, then by all means you'll see somemore random select such as Missile Command or something else like that. I want to do more Golden Age stuff. No one seems to talk about the Atari or Colecovision, and gosh darned it, I'm just a bad enough dude to talk about that stuf. Have fun guys and keep it clean.

Also left in spelling errors today. Hopefully none of my code work here messes up. Oh well!

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.
