CBlogs o' 8/19/13 + MacMangasms: PS4 Launch News Cavalcade of Fun

   0


Sony had a hell of a conference, yeah? I'm sure many of the games they showered were top shelf. But I wouldn't know
  BECAUSE THE GODDAMN FUCKIN CAMERA MAN ZOOMED OUT FOR HALF OF EVERY VIDEO




I'm very excited about the PS4. Now more than ever. The whole thing was just games, games, games, a couple euro things, a watchdogs movie, games, and a jab at Microsoft for not being consistent to say the least. To me, the biggest surprise was Murasaki Baby. That game is right up my alley. So much so to the point where I'm debating buying a Vita sometime next year.



Another cool thing to me Resogun. Super Stardust was one of the first games I bought when I got my PS3, and could very well be my most played game. That and a slew -nay- a smorgasbord of other games announced, have me incredibly excited to get the PS4.



However, on top of all the awesome news. I cannot help but feel like an entitled brat for thinking one thing as soon as it all ended: No Last Guardian?



Now let's recap.

* - A Nice FAQ on adopting an avatar that won't rake in a billion in the box office.

* - Some food for thought on how the gaming press is enabling the epidemic of death threats.

A - Glowy tell us what to play when you're depressed. I play Batman: Arhkam Asylum!

S - I swear, this talking to humans gets better everytime!

A - Huberty gives us a comparative analysis on fighting games.





E - Scieldy has an avatar looking for a home.

E - Glowy wants to give his avatar a home.

T - Killy has some first impressions of the new Europa for us.

N - enya likes dragon crown! Pretty sure I'm gonna pick it up after a price drops.







Playstation's had some weird ads


S - Your little teaser wasn't enough to make me look at your wordpress.


Seriously though, where the fuck is the last guardian?!

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.
