LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/14/13 + Shadeisms

Can’t talk, utterly humongous paper on the legal evaluation of the law on protection of personal data. Due in approximately "way too soon".

I do want to take a moment to thank Andy Dixon again for promoting my blog last week. That was a very pleasant surprise, and I fucking love the header he made. I saved the everloving shit out of it. Once again, I was completely stunned how well a blog that just consists of “here are 10 awesome things” went over with everyone. We’re at 75 comments now (it’s such a weird feeling that one of my blogs has a “load more comments” button ) and there’s not a single negative one in there. I consider that a massive victory. So again, thanks to everyone.

Also, going back to that paper for a second: it turns out that listening to ridiculously hyperactive music while you’re writing a paper works surprisingly well. Who would’ve thought, right? So here ya go, have some CAPS and some DragonForce. (you didn’t think I was lying when I said that I went looking for DragonForce albums, did you?)

*Dives back into the pile of paperwork*






I know what you're about to ask, and the answer is no. No, I don't understand a word of it either.

A - While the 7th generation of video games has been great, it wasn't ALL good. Plombo thinks the big leagues have gotten to scared of taking risks lately.

A - All you really need to know about this blog is that it features the phrase "don't be a flaming pile of mermaid shit". Oh, and something about not taking reviews too seriously I guess.

C - So I'm not entirely sure what Comikaze is (I assume a comicbook event?) but you can win stuff from it! Swag, even!

C - OpiumHerz wants to make a new podcast for Destructoid, but he needs your ideas. Help make Radio Dtoid a thing!

N - Do you want to be a cheating scumbag in GTA V? Sure ya do! modtkone has some nice cheats in store for you.

R - SeymourDuncan reviews the new Ratchet & Clank game. He liked it too!





L - Goddammit Carter, what have you done?! Think of all the people you just got heart attacks with that SHAMEFUL 6.5. It's a good thing we have Benny Disco to tell it to you straight, because we shouldn't have to stand for this.

V - Jagger Gravning has a video interview with a Finnish indie dev. Also naked pixelated ginger.

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.
