LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/17/08 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Njsykora unfortunately couldn't do the recaps tonight, so I'm filling in for the 2nd time this week. I have to say recapping went a lot more smoothly for me tonight then it did on Monday night. That could be because there were a decent amount of Fail blogs today, but it could also be because Monday was the first Cblog recap I ever did, so I was pretty lost and confused. As I already said though, tonight went much smoother and I am glad it did.

So Yojimbo has been giving me a lot of crap lately about not buying SOCOM for the PS3. He enjoys reminding me that I make more money then probably most of the community members on Dtoid, and that I should therefore have the money to buy this game. He has been bugging me about the game for over 2 months now. I am honestly starting to believe he is never going to stop, and at this point I'm willing to buy it simply to shut him up. UGH!

Anyways .... before I start the recaps let me present to you my daily dragon picture .... enjoy ...

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.
