LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 1/13/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


Last night, I was fired from my high-profile, well-paying gig as a janitor at my college’s student union. It sucked. On top of that, I’ve had to contend with my worst cold in years, being poor due to the holidays, and classes that’ll suck the life out of me this semester. So, needless to say, I had a shitty day. That is, until this afternoon, when I spent about 6 hours playing Psychonauts. It’s amazing how the pure unbridled genius of Tim Freaking Schaefer can totally turn a depressing day around.

Speaking of Psychonauts, one of our topsause blogs contains a damn fine pic of Rasputin! Also, we’ve got blogs detailing the downfall of VG music, broken controllers, and how not to play a video game.

Cblog recaps, #_1_in_the_hood_g!



*-Mikey creates a beautiful picture of Raz. I cannot wait to see what he has in store for the community comic!

*-Somehow, Dtoid’s becoming a fucking art gallery; here’s Togail’s gorgeous pic of Mateus The Corrupt.

*-The best 45 seconds of music you’ll ever watch. God bless you, GuitarAtomik.\

*-With Tehmtnlion’s b-day coming up, he takes a look back at his video game exploits.

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.
