LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 04-20-09 and ScottyGasms

Another Monday, another week I start off poorly by staying up way too late on a Monday. Huzzah!

Not a lot of blogs to recap this week, bu for the most partt a good selection. Quite a few monthly musings that are almost always a joy to read. Much love to all of you. :)

So... does anybody actually think the L4D DLC is coming out tomorrow? This is Valve we're talking about here. Even if it does I doubt I'll be playing it tomorrow though. Life stuff aside the oddity known as Zeno Clash is supposed to be coming out tomorrow, which is likely what I'll be playing if I'm playing anything.

Been going though another one of those phases where I'm trying to get rid of lots of old junk. Thought some of it might have been worth something on eBay, but alas none of it is. So I have some really old stuff, some of which may be video game related, that I am looking to get rid of. Any ideas for a community contest? ^_^

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.
