LONG BLOG

Some definitely quieter caps this Saturday. But hey, that's what you all get for VOTING OBAMA.

It is the best day ever, however, because today on this glorious Sunday evening we see the return of Breaking Bad. It's the final stretch of episodes, where Walter White finally reveals himself to be a sentient cyborg sent to Earth to corrupt the youth with drugs? WHAT WILL HAPPEN? I JUST TOLD YOU!



I'm gonna leave it at that. Games and stuff. Whatever. Play Papers, Please if you have any love for yourself. Just don't expected it to be a fun, enjoyable experience with laughs and love. It's depressing and somber.

* - A very cool journey to the heart of GaymerX

* - ChillyBilly takes over the Friday Night Fights with an IRON FIST OF GAMING JUSTICE. Or whatever. Welcome aboard, brotha! He's also called Bill Platt I guess.

A - A cool look at gaming with defenstrator, and co-op in games.

E - Weekend Warriors, come out to play-ee-ay! And more about Platt, plus a great photoshop. I dig ur skillz bro

T - Spelunky is a fantastic game. And now you can play it on other stuff. Other stuff is always good!

R - Yep this pretty much sums up Papers, Please. It's great, go buy it!

P - A look at a dissapointing new mode in Batman for Game Boy. I mean, Arkham Origins. I love Batman for Game Boy...

C - A noble cause but a lacking, desperate blog. Two hours of notice is not very much, and it's made even more irrelevant a day later. Oh well.

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.
