LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 07/12/12 and Mangasms

   0


I'll be back to less stark, mechanically functional recaps soon enough. Going through some stuff, and some things. Don't have a single moment of desire for any kind of creativity or levity.

Poop.

I hope that made you laugh, it's the best I can do right now.

* - I want these on my wall.

* - I feel automatically compelled to topsauce some members here. In fairness, I always read the blogs first. I topsauced this one after being wary of topsaucing it based on the fact that Occams wrote it and I love him. But then I topsauced it anyways because it was great. Funny how these things work.

S - The second part of a very cool new series.

A - Some people like Dark Souls, and other people are COMMUNISTS. But in all honesty, this is a pretty fair look at Dark Souls from the perspective of someone who isn't just a raving fanboy...and a Communist.

A - A neat look at risk and reward systems, specifically those in the roguelike genre.

M - Some musings about 2012.

M - More o' that, and BRAAAINS

M - Lots of musings this month.



T - A neat look at Steams new TV oriented interface.

T - Some short thoughts on Braid.

L - Yes, a DS emulator would be helpful to all. Oh wait - if you want to steal DS games, you could just get an R4 or something. Or just not be a dick and buy them since they cost about as much as the gum I spit on the ground last night. But whatevs.

R - Some *yawn* thoughts about......zzzflurgh, sorry, Ahem. Star Wars *nnnnggg* Old rep *yawn* ublic.

R - zzzzzzz......

R - And more stuff. About stuff.

F - I suggest using the Wii U to drop on small crabs at the beach. It is an excellent crushing device for small crabs. Alternatively, you could rip the guts out of it, and use it as a home for said crabs if you are against the crushing of small crabs. I find that crushing the crabs into a fine paste first makes them much easier to can for later consumption. But the choice is yours, really. I'm sure the Wii U has other functions also, but I mostly just use mine to crush and eat small shelled beach denizens.

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.
