LONG BLOG

Cblog Recaps of 2/10/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


I was gonna make a separate blog about this, but, due to time constraints (read: Left 4 Dead), I’ve decided to put this here:

So, I recently began taking a glass sculpture and blowing class, namely because of A) my love of watching it as a child, and B) because some of my friends were in the glass program. One of those friends, who goes by the moniker Adam, created this beauteous piece of work here:






Yes, I know the pics are blurry. All you need to know is that that is that’s Bowser, made entirely out of glass. The display he’s currently in has him grasping, oh yes, a REAL FLAMETHROWER in his left hand. It’s one of the coolest art pieces I’ve seen in a long time.

NOW TO THE RE…caps…wow, we’re rather light on content tonight, folks. Oh well, just makes my job easier, I guess. Anyway, in the recaps, and old man talking about old man things, how great Nintendo is doing, and how poorly Sega is sucking.

Cblog Recaps…yeah, I’ve got nothing…



*-Respair is so awesome, he can beat games IN HIS SLEEP! LITTERALLY!

*-A list I couldn’t agree more with: 5 characters who need to be put in a great game.

*-So true, so true: when a game your anticipating lets you down.

*-A great blogged summed up by its final line: “I want gaming to be Viewtiful forever.”

*-When are you too old for games (answer: NEVAR!!!).

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.
