LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/17/09 + Pendeltonisms

So, last week, I talked about my friend making a badass Bowser glass piece. That same friend has asked me into the studio tonight to help him out with his next project: the 3 main characters of AAAAH! Real Monsters. Holy shit am I excited! Also, this week, our school has had an old-world (read: Italian born-and-raised) glass "maestro" come in and make glass while people observes. The guy's name is Elio Quarisa, and he makes some of the most beautiful pieces I've ever seen. Check this out:

Yeah, he's been in the shop all week, making stuff like this, and, for some reason, humming "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" all the time. I fucking love this dude.

Speaking of old guys, today's blog contains some old dude's birthday, on top of other things, like the first ever Fail and Top blog by the same user in the same day, and lost of The Lost and The Damned talk.

Cblog Recaps: Ba da bum ba ba, I'm loving it!



*-OH FUCK YES! Over 100 of us fine folks are in the Google Group for PAX 09. WE’RE GONNA TAKE OVER SEATTLE!!!

*-A great look at what I think is the most terrifying segment of gaming ever invented: bullet hells.

*Umm…wow, hell of a way to come out the gate: Welcome Mighty Pinto as he talks about R-type: Dimensions

*-Pretty fantastic round-up of The Lost and The Damned, considering his fail earlier in the day.

*-When is Dtoid just gonna get its own art gallery: Vice shows off some gorgeous Castlevania X and Cave Story art.



A-Crunshii examines the need for game companies to look into dropping game prices back down, what with the Economy in such bad shape.

A-BFeld13 gives us his thoughts on GTA DLC through a children’s storybook-style delivery.

P-FAILCAST recorded tonight. And, apparently, it’s magical and unexplainable.


FUCK YES! Though my guitar broke (=[), I was happy I was finally able to play this on Rock Band today:




S-Wow, Kyvon08 found the only instance of a Gamestop employee who isn’t an inconsiderate moron.

S-Wow, Brilliam IS awesome! Also, fucking rocking dog, Zen!

I-Welcome professional weeaboo to the cblogs, then run away in terror.

B-Some old guy (y0j1mb0) talks about how some other old guy (SantanaClause89) got older today. Those ancient fuckers.



N-Since I know not the loving touch of PC gaming, this means little to me, but probably excites some of you: the Source mod Black Mesa is gonna be out by the end of the year.

V-Mega64 spoofing Elite Beat Agents. Like the costumes and dancing, but the music makes me want to shove a flaming screwdriver in my ear.

R-A pretty cool text-and-video review of the new SF4 Fightpad.

R-COD4 review, with some Dtoiders showing their teeth in the comments. Good read, though.

T-Aparently Demios likes GTA: TLaTD. How do I know? Oh, probably the line “THIS IS HOW THE DLC CONCEPT WORKS BITCHES!”

T-A look at Daemon Bride, which, while gorgeous, is apparently for pussies.

D-This is pretty neat: GamingGoddess shows off some sprites she made for a game she’s working on.



A-Art of Isarar, Maximilian, and Selvaria in the new Valkyria anime. Also, I find out what the fuck Char Aznable means.

A-Aertyr is on the path to failing maths whilst he draws SF4 and Dtoid doodles.



?-Neat little find: F.E.A.R. 2 has some Office Space Easter eggs.

?-I don’t care what he says: Gibbo is the father of that crazy British whore who slept with a 12-year-old.

?-Mix this with Gentleman Dinosaur, and you’ve got the makings of the greatest, classiest, Anti-Semitiest game ever.



F-...are you serious, dude? Do your own work.

F-I don’t understand why you didn’t direct this to the forums…

F-What, pray tell, was the point of this shortblog?

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.
