LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/25/08 + ScottyGasms

Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you all spent it with some loved ones, ate too much good food, and possibly got a good haul of presents as well. I know I did. :)

I've also decided to start a new Christmas tradition: watching the "Christmas With the Joker" episode of the Batman animated series. For those who have never seen it this is what you're missing out on:


Seeing as there was no Cblog recaps yesterday, I'll just do the ones starting with the beginning of Christmas day.


*- Randombullseye gives us Bonerquest
*- Yeah, I'm topsaucing my own cblog. On top of it being awesome and getting front-paged, it's a nice perk for doing recaps :p


S- Latest episode of dTunes, featuring SilverDragon1979's 12 days of Christmas song


E- Possibly late Persona 4 entry


S- eBay and Sony do a tag team on poor Edco
H- Darkknight37's basement setup, updated with new tv
C- NihonTiger90 looks back at 500 cblog posts
S- Some favourite game moments, but how did he get time to place all those proximity mines?


R- Castle Crashers review. Hella late, but at least they actually waited for that goddamn patch...
T- L4D community is nice, yay!
T- A top ten, and several other lists waiting to pounce on the unwary web-surfer
N- List of game translations that were released recently
R- Rather brief "review" of Tomb Raider Underworld
N- European VC releases. Yay, Secret of Mana!!


F- Fox owns rights to a Watchmen movie. Boo...
M- Insane Ian got 3rd place in some contest with this WoW song. Not bad
F- <3 Wallace and Gromit, and must see this
A- Same sketch that Krow linked to (below), but the link actually works


R- Sounds like Freefall got 12 games for Christmas... Cunt...
R- Another Christmas haul. Yay Batman animated series! <3
L- Failure on the GameTrailers forums
R- Yet another Christmas haul. Join us on FNF for TF2! :D
L- I'm a Canadian Dtoider! Gimme my present now damnit!
R- Christmas wishes, as only BigPoppaGamer can
V- Followup to the fail announcement post. Stream of a few good movies
C- Conspiracy theories and lack of avatars abound!


F- Apparently bad grammar and insults don't make people want to watch movies with you
S- Meh, video wasn't good when it was first released. Also, lolz for thinking the iPhone is a gaming system
F- If there was a Fail of the Day, this'd be it. Just the Digg link is enough to clinch it. Fuck Digg
S- I've never seen that before, but Hamza says they've always been there so I won't argue
F- Krow shows us why you apparently need to put a title in your cblog. Can't even link to the entry so just linking to their profile. Shame, as it's a nice sketch
F- Giant thread in the forums for just this thing buddy, but amazingly the community wasn't very harsh on them

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.
