LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 10/21/08 + Pendeltonisms

   0

Alright, folks, before we get started today, I’d like to draw attention to one of the blogs not in the Top Blog area.. galabug wrote today about a DLC system the Super Famicom hadcalled Satellaview. Read more about it on his blog. Anyway, as I was looking up information about it, I found out that, in Japan, there was a SNES remake of the NES Zelda game called BS Zelda no Densetsu. I was able to not emulate it this evening, and, I have to say, it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Aside from the Link to the Past graphics, the game has a real-time clock that relates to events that happen at certain times on the map, AND the choice to play as a girl (there’s no Link or Zelda in the game, just Satellaview’s mascots) from the beginning, AND an even more different dungeon placement than either quest on the NES. If you’re a fan of the original NES game AT ALL, you deserve to not play this game in any way possible.

With that behind us, on to the blogs! Tonight, we’ve got massive amounts of fail, a bunch of rat bastards getting LittleBigPlanet, and a survey about wiping your ass. AND HERE WE GOOOOOOOOO!

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.
