LONG BLOG

Well good weekend everyone!

So Anita Sarkeesian released another video, which cheeky scamp Steven Hansen shared with the oh-so-level headed Dtoid bunch. It's like waiting on the next instalment of a well loved webisode to a sci-fi...only it's not well loved. 


No one likes this show right?

Regardless of your opinions on her opinions, people are kinda straying off the beaten to death path. Be you pro-Sark or anti-Sark, be you a bottle of vinegar or a tramp under a bridge (those two are connected, you'd see that if you didn't hate genders) - then you need to realise that we're talking about the same issue in a constant loop, only time and social media has increased the sheer rage and fury that accompanies it. 

Sexism is wrong, bigotry and phobia is wrong. That's the basics, that's the truth. We need to stop rehashing and start actually doing something. Game companies need to start implementing equality in gaming, especially as it should be the easiest thing in the world to do. 



New consoles will come and go, but hate will always remain. Unless we just y'know, stop.

*read that in Enya's voice, it might sound a bit more meaningful and wise*

In other news, for those that don't know and those that do, I tried to organise a charity event in London that focused on inclusion for disabled gamers. I had everything but the advertisement support and it got too close, with too few numbers so I cancelled the event. Still a little bit of money was raised and donated to the charity and I am glad for that at least. 



To anyone out there with free time and who want to do something really groovy, that will mean a lot to others, I'd suggest volunteering or getting involved. It doesn't consume too much time or your life. I volunteer as a reader in a school (fuck yeah The Bear and the Bee is a great book) and also as a scribe for disabled students. I do it mainly because I have a lot of free time, but it does make me feel like I'm helping and you get to meet amazing people and share amazing stories. If you want to donate to charities, even a few quid does indeed make all the difference.

Anyway lets roll out with some recaps.

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.
