LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 10/09/09 + Y0j1mb0isms

   0


Ever since I got Demon's Souls I haven't been able to put it down. My impression blog of this game is coming soon but in the meantime that picture above is the only game that can pry me away from hunting demons. Funny that a cheap charming downloadable puzzle game is as addicting as a full priced one. Go check out Destructoid's review of Critter Crunch and then promptly buy it. This game kicks major ass and you need to own it. Its that awesome. Here's another look at it right after the next paragraph for those not in the know.

Also on a Cblog related topic, I don't think I've ever topsauced as much stuff as I have today. I make it a point to literally put the cream of the crop here by my standards which usually results in less than other recappers. That and I'm old. It warms my cold heart to see the size of topsauce grow. As a matter of fact all across the board everybody is getting better. A special shout out to mkshiranui who's writing is improving. You're getting close to topsauce.

*-Wry Guy's latest in his KoF love letters. Read it. Even if you're not a fan of fighting games it's kickass.
*- Tubatic's masturbatory compendium of his Way of the Samurai 3 blogs is what being passionate for a game is all about.
*-John Johnson's Monthly Musing is a good read indeed.
*-Kauza's humor is infectious.
*-I actually don't agree with megaStryke's assertion that immersion is a nonsense buzzword word...but I can't deny it was a worthwhile read.
*-The Obscurer Tribune + Topsauce always go hand in hand.
*-A Fan-Fic Dare. Quirky and very cool.
*-THIS IS AMAZING.
*- Another monthly musing in topsauce? Yup. This time its Wry Guy's.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Changes

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.
