Oh, sweet merciful Lord, Darksiders. Darksiders, Darksiders, Darksiders. I never thought I could have such a boner for a game. It’s just…a game made for gamers. Everything good about gameplay from fucking EVERYTHING is in here. Christ, they put a Star Fox/ Panzer Dragoon level in it, for absolutely no reason. This has been my curse, my obsession for the past few days. I'm sorry if you're not into the game, because you are seriously missing out on just pure unadulterated fun. Yes, it is buggy, and the story blows, and blah blah blah. Forget all of that; this game is just SO. FUCKING. FUN. that none of it really matters. Again, sorry to gush on about this, but…AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHRUINVOIDWALKERSAMAELKILLINGBATSAAAAAHHHHHHHHH.

While I not-so-quietly lose my sanity, let’s get to the recaps. Today, we have two Dtoid regulars hate-fucking each other over various blogs, mass killings made fun, and, of course, waffles.



*- A re-introduction to the great DtoidEurope group!

*- A blog that will make you actually think a game about the Spanish Civil War would be pretty cool.

*- This blog is about nothing but waffles.

*- A refreshing blog about spending the night with Crash Bandicoot, with no rape involved at all.

*- Let’s go look at the past of gaming with some old bastard!

*- Here’s an interesting and somewhat sad blog about the passing of DarwinMayflowers internet friend.

*- Holy shit; if you ever need a super-comprehensive look at the best Starcraft players from around the world, look here.

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.
