LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 1/20/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


I think that this might be one of the greatest weeks I've seen in a long time, and it's only Tuesday! First, yesterday, having MLK Day off, I did what anyone would do to celebrate the great Civil Rights leader: stay in the house and watch a Powerpuff Girls marathon while finishing Symphony of The Night. As if that wasn't enough, today's historic inauguration was a beautiful thing to behold. But, it's not nearly as cool as what I picked up today: LEFT 4 DEAD!!! I'm finally one of the many to become a Survivor, and I've loved every minute of it. As the rest of the week goes on, tomorrow promises my first glass blowing class and the season premier of Lost. Thursday is free dinner with my folks, and Friday, I'll hopefully participate in my first FNF with the Dtoid gang!

Awesome.

Anyway, in today's recaps, we've got tits galore, a Xenu-hating Shamwow spokesman, and, for some ungodly reason, Alf.

I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Recaps, and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Cblogs of Destructoid.

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.
