LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/23/08 + SilverDragonisms

   0

That's right it's time for another exciting installment of the daily Cblog recaps, brought to you by yours truly, Silverdragon. I'm taking over for Pendelton tonight, since he took over for me last night. I have to tell you guys there was a lot of good stuff to read today in the community blogs. So good in fact that I found 4 posts that I highlighted below in the topsauce section that I honestly think everyone should read. There also weren't a lot of fail blogs, which is always a good thing. The fewer fail blogs the better.

So today was my final day of work in the year 2008. I don't plan on being back in the office until January 5th, which is almost a full 12 days off. Trust me I am extremely excited. How do I plan on spending those 12 days you might ask. Well I've had Fallout 3 sitting on top of my XBOX360 for the last month unwrapped, so I plan on finally opening that up and playing it. From what everyone has said, including Yojimbo, it is was of the best games of the year. Yes I do believe 12 straight days of Fallout 3 is the perfect way to end 2008. SO what are you guys planning on playing over the Christmas break?

Well let's get to the recaps .... but first here's your dragon picture for the day ...

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.
