LONG BLOG

Hello everyone! I've still been playing Dark Souls II. I've moved onto New Game+, and I really like what they're doing with New Games this time around. I'm having trouble with bosses that were a breeze the first time through the game, which I didn't really expect.

I started doing some co-op, now that I've beaten the game solo. Summoning is definitely a lot more reliable now, which is a huge relief! Even at a high soul level of 160, I'm still finding plenty of summon signs near bosses, and the connections almost always work out. I also haven't had too much trouble being summoned myself, although there are certain bosses where you'll have to stand around awhile before you find someone who needs your help. 



I've only tried PvP a handful of time, and they always seem to be super quick duels, not lasting more than 10 seconds unless both players are being too careful. There's still some weird lag when it comes to attacks connecting though; I thought I was totally out of the way of other players' attacks sometimes, and yet they still managed to hit me. 

In terms of multiplayer, I vastly prefer co-op, so I'll probably be doing that more than PvP anyway. Co-op play has worked seamlessly for me so far, so that makes me happy! I love being able to help out players who are having trouble with a boss that had previously given me a lot of frustration. It's a wonderful feeling!

In other news, Kill la Kill aired its final episode this week. It was an extremely satisfying anime, definitely one of my favorites! So many memorable characters, awesome music, ridiculously over-the-top action sequences... what a great show. I can't wait for an English translation, so I can spend more time looking at the animation and less time reading subtitles. Also, I hope Mako can get her own spin-off show someday; her and her family were so entertaining!

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.
