LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 01/01/10 + Mousisms

Now that Christmas and New Year are both over, we reach that slightly depressing period where you realise you have another year before you can do anything like that again.

If you read last Friday's recap you'd have heard that I was experiencing some technocal difficulties with my family. Well it's all ok. My dad didn't have a heart attack and my uncle hasn't touched a drink since then which is a good sign, I suppose.

Anyway, this was a pretty slow day for the blogs. Expect some FNF's, a few topsauces and "noggetits".



*-Topsauced for the Necros hating.

*-There were some other things in BFelds blog, but the most important thing is that Samit has finaly, FINNALY played Portal.

*-Gitaroo Man is apparently a game you NEED to play.

*-Do you want to know what people played in 2009? Better check out this list by Necros.

*-Here is Part 2 of that list.

*-Obscurer Tribune is up again.



A-Torzelan blogs about his resolutions.
A-Bluexy has been struggling to play all of the great games of 2009.
M-For his first blog, Enkido does a love/hate about DLC.


NO.



F-360 FNF, with added Nils.
F-PS3 FNF. I see some "friendly competition" between Elsa and Jimbo.
I-Welcome, L G Jargon! At least someone managed to keep up their resolution.
I-Welcome, Stronstad!



R-RetroSoldier does a review of Resident Evil 5
T-TSureth tells us what he played in 2009 and boy is that a big list...
T-Lester37 wants YOU to tell him what to play.


Nothing here, surprisingly.



V-ShiMuNi - hosted, as always, by Genki-Jam.
?-CLP posted a "Happy New Year" blog but didn't put a title on it. I've linked to his profile.
C-A Happy New Year to you too.
NVGR- Animated Toupee blogs about Doctor Who, which I know nothing about.



F-If this wasn't a drunk blog I would have topsauced it just because of the word noggertits.

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.
