LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 09/23/2009 + Sykisms

I would just like to say today has been the greatest day anyone has ever had. First I got a depressing letter from AOL saying that I somehow owe them 60. Then I went further into the mail to find a package from someone called Yanier. Is there anyone else here who gets caught for a second when someone refers to Niero by his real name? Anyway inside the package was my Become shirt (#223 bitches) which I naturally put on immediately. Then I go into town and buy season 1 of 30 Rock having thought about it for some time. So I then spend the rest of the day watching that. I also got an email from Sony with a handy MAG beta code. Then I got an email from Hamza with a nice fresh Uncharted 2 beta code. And now as I'm writing this I have Demetri Martin's Person special on TV. Then there's all the time I've spent today playing NHL10. Awesome moments where my Be a Pro player (N. Sykora naturally) wins games through an awesome pass or a blistering/lucky shot. SPORTS!!

Oh yeah, and I have cake too. Good cake, the kind you need a fork for.

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.
