LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/25/13 and CHRISTMAS CBLOG FAPCAST 17-isms

   0

Merry Christmas!

I'm tired.

I got an SD card that's incompatible with my 3DS and $200.

I saw The Desolation of Smaug and really want to go to bed.

So instead of Striderisms, here is Fapcast 17, Return of Pony Pals.



It's Christmas time! We get together specifically so Shade can make sure he knows English before spending $200 on a test! But don't worry because we've loving the blogs you've been doing! It must have been the Christmas spirit! Also 2013 is ending so that's cool to restart a podcast. Also, I'm giving away Pony Friends 2! Leave a short review of the game below and you may win the Wii game of the century!



After months of calculated waiting and sloth, we finally return with an episode of the Fapcast! Macmanus, Shade, Strider, and Smurf return in a post-Huge Dtoid world to talk blogs, Dark Souls, Pokemon, and COOKIE CLICKER MADNESS.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Changes

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.
