LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 11/3/08 + Jimboisms

   0




I'm back, again... reading the cblogs of Destructoid in all its totality and recapping them for your reading pleasure. Your usual Cblog Recapper, the gentleman known as Casual Weaponry, unfortunately couldn't make the proceedings tonight due to a little thing called voting. So since I'm your recapper tonight I thought I would use this opportunity to tell you what games have been occupying my time to the point that I'm not writing blogs lately. Still playing Persona3:FES, as well as FARCRY2 which I liken to GTA IV in the jungle ( Love the game ), Little Big Planet, working on my next level and rounding it off: SOCOM:Confrontation.



Dear Lord, I can't stop playing this game. It's a drug you see. No multiple lives, no shields, no auto aiming, just you, your skill and a heartbeat from death or victory. With the latest patch this game is running like butter. Do yourselves a favor, if you haven't picked it up yet... now is the time to do it. With the bundled headset it's a steal and it rocks. The Destructoid Clan is in full force and this upcoming Saturday, SOCOM Nights debuts. Now that I have gotten that plug out of the way, let us take a closer look at what was before.

Spoiler Alert: There were a lot of interesting, newsy, strange and plain fail things you may have missed.

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.
