LONG BLOG

CBlogs o' 8/5/13 + MacMangasms

Sadly, I haven't too much time for my Gasms so it's gonna be a quick one.

So, I've been waiting in anticipation for the PS4, but as I look more and more at what will be coming back this fall, I have a great grievance with it brewing. (which is pretty much my complaint with this upcoming generation in general) The whole no backwards compatibility thing is gonna be pretty annoying. 



This fall I will be buying the new Batman, GTA, and the upcoming South Park game. This means for the first couple months I'll have the PS4, I'm gonna be switching a whole lot between the PS4 and PS4. Now, 6 months from now, I don't think I'll give a damn, but the great lineup of games for coming out this season has me wondering if getting the new console at launch is really worth it.

What do you guys think? Anyone who reserved the PS4 or Xbone have this problem?

Another fine day for blogs. Let's get to it and enjoy these FUCKING SHARK WEEK themed pictures.

* - Zerocrossingy discusses the portrayal of women in games in a well done way. What I appreciated the most were his thoughts on other people's approach to the topic.

* - Zombie-ee is at his best with this edition of Talking to Humans.

A - Joey hits us with some thoughts on his backlog that I can relate to.

M - Popey's distaste for Mega Man's level design sparks a debate.

S - Another fine entry in the SaveState series.





I - VagrantHingey's first blog shows a very promising start. Can't wait to see more from you.

T - Sephzilla-ee ponders on how MMOs could be better.

R - Nadery seemed to enjoy Metro. Kudos for using the /5 scale.

D - Johnny is working on a cool little game here. Interested to check it out, for sure.

A - Gargaroo-ee gives us some thoughts on how art contributes to immersion. Really like the picture he used.





S - A not so great introduction. Better luck next time !

SHARK WEEK

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.
