Cblogs of 1/2/10 and 1/3/10 + SilverDragonisms

I had this entire last week of work in which to stay home and play games, and it was absolutely wonderful. After beating Batman: Arkham Asylum earlier in the week, I moved onto Assassin's Creed 2. I'm about 20 hours in so far, and I still feel like I have another 20 hours to play. That game is simply incredible. I honestly have no idea why Jim Sterling gave it such a low review score. The more and more I play the game, the more I realize Jim was full of complete shit when he wrote that review. He must have had a huge fucking stick up his ass when he played the game or something.

I also picked up and started playing Torchlight this week. Now while that is also a great game, there is no mistaking that it is a complete Diablo rip off. Now I know it was made by the same guys from Blizzard who made the original smash hit, but still, you think they should have tried to make it less obvious. But no, its just DIABLO DIABLO DIALBO all up in your face. Oh well. I guess that's a good thing, because I loved Diablo, and I love Torchlight.

Well that's it from me for now. Let's get on with your weekend cblogs recaps.

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.
