LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 03/26/14 + NIHILISMS

   0



Hello, Destructoid community bloggers. It's been a while yet.

Some of you may know me. Some of you may not. I am Nihil, a murder police in The Basement. I used to be a frequent blogger myself, on these here pages. There's a few excuses as to why I don't blog as much anymore. Foremost is because video games are horrible and should be banned and you all should be ashamed of yourselves. Secondly, it's none of your business. And last, your Mother.

BUT! I still care about reading your musings, so much so that I made a thread dedicated to showing Those Who Dwell Below what they're missing up here. A sorta cool-blogs-I-read-lately deal - not unlike these here recaps. And I have concluded, with my natural detective skills, that this made me a shoe-in as a reservist for the cblogs.

If you told me months and years and days ago that I would be a reserve recapper in 2014, I would've told you to shut up and go kill yourself. But now, in these dire times, it seems my services to the cblog community are required yet again.




* - Third Round of your MSpaints is go. You will literally get a cookie for each one you guess right.

* - Arsenic13 thinks about the children and the future of their online gaming environments.

* - Everyday Legend is a big fan of irony and corrupt politicians getting fucked in the ass. It just so happens I am as well.









I - HLBC is back, and explains why he hasn't made a blog in a while. His reasons are better than mine.


N - ktfX gives us the low-down on why Facebook buying out Oculus is pissing people off.

R - Old McDonald had a farm. And on that farm, he reviewed Silent Hill Shattered Memories, The Stanley Parable, and SteamWorld Dig. They're pretty okay.

R - Star Ocean is underrated, ROM'd, and reviewed. It's not piracy if they don't make 'em like they used to...

T - PopetheRev likes the Sonic and Outrun series, because they make him feel funny "down there".



A - A comic book review and recommendations by the elusive Hammershark.







Thus concludes our broadcast Recaps. Hope you enjoyed 'em. Thanks to Strider and Smurfee for the opportunity, and I'll see y'all 'round the bend!

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.
