LONG BLOG

CBlogs o' 9/9/13 + MacMangasms [Breaking Bad Spoiler Alert]

   0


Gotta say, I haven't really had time to play much of anything this week. I've been buried hip deep in a pile of test prep books as I desperately cram for the GRE. Oh, how I love standardized tests that will have a major impact on the course of your life. But that's not what I want to talk about this week. This week I have to talk about Breaking-fucking-Bad.

[img=600x800]https://d2nh4f9cbhlobh.cloudfront.net/_uploads/galleries/3577/breaking-bad-image-2.jpg[/img]

I am simply obsessed with this show. I watched the whole series earlier this year and marathoned right through it on Netflix in preparation for the final episodes. This week's episode was just too much. My favourite moment was when Saul Goodman and Walt Jr. finally crossed paths. It was a funny reminder of how Walt Jr. has been completely unaware of what has been going on throughout his many breakfast eating scenes.



As for what I think will happen, I'm pretty sure this is the end of Hank, and unfortunately, Gomey. The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that it's the inevitable end for Hank. For him, it's no longer about simply locking up a criminal, it's about catching his White (no pun intended) whale. Clearly he hasn't gathered evidence in a way any court will take and he also has Walt's confession tape to contend with, Hank was gonna catch him even if it kills him.



I'm pretty sure the next episode will begin with Hank and Gomez going down and Walt finds that Jessie has escaped.  I really can't take the suspense. What do you guys think is gonna happen?

Let's talk about this in the comments.

* - A bit on the pitfalls of game criticism. I give you top sauce like I think of Vice as a good documentary show. Great, but I'd have liked to have seen you do more.

* - A great journey through the history of backwards compatibility.

A - Manny just about has me sold on the Vita TV.

S - Sammy let's us know what he'll be up to.

S - A meaty backlog. Fine work as always.









D - I'm really intrigued. Looking forward to the trailer.

T - Shuuda-y brings us some impressions of an interesting looking prison game.

R - A Fallout 3 reviews for you. Nothing against the review but I really hate when people call a review "The [insert name here] Review," eh Kotaku,,,

R - Another review by Sammy. This time he does Gone Home.





V - Marchey takes us through some of the cooler streams out there.

S - As I say every week now, please do a blog along with your let's play.

Also guys the Pirates finally have a winning season! I could care less what happens form here on out this season. It's been over 20 years. I'm good.

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.
