LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2/20/10 and 2/21/10 + SilverDragonisms

   0

Welcome to another exciting edition of the weekend cblog recaps. I'm your host, SilverDragon1979, and I'll be your guide on your wonderful journey through the heart of the Destructoid community. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask. Also, make sure you keep your hands and feet inside the moving webpage.

Now that that's out of the way, I thought I would mention that I sat down and watched the Halo Legends DVD this weekend. I'm writing a review of it for Gamer Limit, and I have to tell you all that I was pretty impressed for the most part. The DVD consists of 7 short stories, most of which are 15 minutes long, and anyone who's a Halo fan will definitely get a kick out of them. I don't even consider myself a Halo fan and I enjoyed them quite a bit.

I also played a beat Master Blaster Overdrive this week. Unfortunately I had little to no fun playing the game. There were sections of the game so hard that I threw my WiiMote across the room on more than one occasion. Suffice to say, it won't be getting a good review from me, which actually should be posted tomorrow on Gamer Limit.

Now I'm playing Bioshock 2. I'm only about 2 hours in, but so far I'm not impressed at all, which is pretty disappointing. All my friends really enjoyed it though, so I have my fingers crossed that it eventually gets better. Did anyone else play the game? Did you enjoy it?

Well that's enough about me for one weekend. After all, you didn't come to hear my jabber about. You came for the cblog recaps, so let's get on with them shall we ....

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.
