LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 04/25/13 + Shadeisms

Another week gone already, and it was a busy one. There was a lot of work to do, but fortunately it was all work I liked doing to a more or lesser extent. There were three essays to write or finish writing: one on the legal philosophical question of whether or not legal research is a science. My 3,500-word essay condensed into four? ďWho the hell cares?Ē The second was an examination of a recent court case. It was a short essay, we had a 1,200-word limit, but it turns out that having so few words to tell your story in is actually much more difficult than just being able to elaborate on everything. Seeing as I tend to be slightly verbose (just slightly though), this was good practice. Finally, Iíve been busy with the working of competition law on hospitals and other health care providers. Now that one is nowhere near done yet, but Iíve made good progress this week. I want to have a good portion done by the end of next week so I can send it in to my supervisor for further comments. On top of all of that I even managed to come close to putting the final touches on a Cblog I want to post next week or so. I hope itíll be good.

This is the first particularly busy week Iíve had in a while, and only now did I really see Project Curaga pay off. I managed to pretty well keep a schedule of starting my work at 9 or 10AM and staying more or less on track until the end of the day. I never wouldíve been able to do that two months ago. Itís really quite surprising to me how much of an effect a simple thing like ďgo to bed on timeĒ can have. For good behavior I rewarded myself every night with a good couple of hours of video games: mostly that one with all the monsters and the hunting. I forget what itís called. Right now Iím rocking a full set of Volvidon armor, which gives a large attack and evasion bonus, and which I managed to adjust so it also gives more stamina. Always handy.

Oh, and it looks sweet.



I like the demon look on the female version.
I am thinking of taking the time out to slay a bunch of Gigginox for the increased monster exhaustion and the decreased stamina loss their armor set gives, except that Gigginox are dicks. Like, such massive dicks.


Fun fact: its weak point is its head. ďWhich side is the head?Ē, you ask? Exactly. Dicks.

Either way, thereís not much else for me to talk about unless you are massively interested in competition law in the health care sector or how big of a dick Gigginox is (such a dick), so letís get cappiní!

* - Farewell Fap, we hardly knew ye. Fortunately, Zombie Orwell does everything in his power to keep the memory alive.

A - Kbirth is wondering about the announced Xbox reveal. It certainly doesn't seem like it'll have the punch the previous Xbox reveal had. No Elijah Wood, for one.

P - Faps or no faps, there will always be a Fapcast! Episode 12 with Strider, Phil and no Glowbear. Also Injustice. Lots of Injustice.

A - Strider examines the meta-game for Injusti-...goddammit Strider, can you and Injustice please get a room?!

A - Apparently the Virtual Boy had games on it, some of which may have even been decent...ish.

A - Here are some predictions for the Xbox reveal, all of which seem completely reasonable.



Don't you give me that look.

I - Christerious introduces himself to a game blog by saying he doesn't play much video games. It's okay though, it's only for time reason. Besides, he makes up for it with soundtracks and streams.

F - PC Friday Night Fights and Hot Dog Princess because Swishiee doesn't know what to talk about. LSP is where it's at man.

T - Oh shit, always-online is coming to WiiU now? I am so sad now.

A - Ray organized an event for a ton of artists to draw Zelda-related stuff. There's some really cool art in here.

A - It's certainly no Zelda, but Podtoid fan-art is cool too!

M - I've played so much of this game, but never noticed how good the music was! That doesn't happen to me very often. So thanks for sharing this Sonic Heroes song, amxwolf!

C - If you like Europa Universalis, killias has a promotion.

C - There's not much structure to this Bioshock blog.

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.
