LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 12/28/12 and bbainisms

   0


Woah, you guys, there's a meme going on in the Cblogs! Do you know what this means? It's time to break out the old Memetoid banner and dust that bad boy off! When was the last time this thing was used, anyway? I have no idea. I'm not even sure where it normally belongs, so I just sort of improvised. I suppose the 10 Things blogs could have counted as a meme, but they all ended up topped with sauce anyway.

To honor this momentous event, I shall indulge you all in my own name's Urban Dictionary meaning. Let's see...

Benjamin: Short or slang expression for a 100 dollar bill, 'cause Benjamin Franklin's face is on the front side of it.

What is in this bag? -- it's full of benjamins!

Oh... oh yeah. My name is a slang term which actually belongs in Urban Dictionary. No huge cocks or godlike powers for me! Thanks a lot, Ben Franklin!

M - I need to find this "Handy" Mirandy person. She sounds nice!

M - "When I walked in on Thomas in the bathroom, I never knew a white boy could be so huge!" Possible intro to an interracial porno?

M - "Wow... that guy can make pie appear at his fingertips... he is such a Kellen."

M - Oh Jeeze, I'm definitely not bored with this Nia." Also, kudos to Pixielated for actually turning this meme into an informative intro blog!

M - Oh no... it seems this meme has ruined Nic's day. It's all fun and games until someone's name is a racially charged slang term.

V - A new gameplay video of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate has surfaced!

F - The forums are that-a-way, buddy.

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.
