LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 2009/06/29 and ScottyGasms

   0

Once again, amidst all the arguing currently going on in IRC (usual stuff... people who can't take a joke and people who can't drop a matter), another Monday comes to a close. I for one and very thankful that it's over. I'll feel the same way about tomorrow too as Wednesday is Canada Day. Woo!

bushofghosts, I feel your pain. The whole regional thing MS has going with their XBL accounts and points is total bullshit, and haven't been able to get a straight answer from them yet as to why they do it. Thankfully I was able to (on the advice of MS support) to get ahold of the seller and get my refund since it doesn't really say anywhere that I can't use it. Still though. :(

And on a final note before collapsing to bed, and I'm going to be very polite here, SilverDragon1979 is frankly just wrong and really needs to remove the retro-goggles. Not to say the old days sucked as they were pretty awesome too, but I do not believe for one second that the quality of the community or the cblogs has gone down. Just because you don't know the frequent/good/bad cbloggers anymore doesn't mean they aren't as good.


*- The latest installment of dtoid community discusses focuses on AAA titles
*- A very funny and unique review of the Conduit


S- Episode two of STFUAJPGM! GET!

W- Kauza brings us Fallout 3 contest reminder, and love. Dawww...


C- alexBunchOfNumbers wonders what makes an "acceptable" cblog post and amazingly an actual discussion ensued
C- I'm sorry, but like Molotov said nicely written but I'm sick of hearing about this. And there no way that woman is only 50 feet tall
S- A good friend did the same thing with FFXII: hated it at first, but played it awhile later and now loves it
E- I think it's worth losing a dtoid panel at SGC if we get sexual favours from uncle Jimmles
S- Jesus... sounds like walkyourpath has a pretty awesome wife... All the girls I date kept waiting for me to grow out of video games... in favour of watching tv together all evening...
S- HA! megaStryke's mall pictures find their way into the US News!
C- I've always thought of it as being 0-10, which irc has informed me is an 11 point scale
S- As awesome as these are, thank god they aren't real or Scribblenauts would get sued into oblivion


T- How do you just "fall upon" an MMO's homepage?
T- The moral? Don't play with norm9 on your team
T- HydeGFF considers the gaming industry approaching critical mass
T- Actually... that's kind of a cool idea. I agree though... timers suck
D- That... was amazing... and there was some really fancy footwork in the video too :D
T- Velt's thoughts on Starcraft II lacking LAN support
D- I'm not sure CWal37, but I opted in too just in case :D


C- I still think Tanukitsune's missing the point of playing games (I didn't think you "beat" Peggle...), but it isn't fail this time
R- Might've been fail, but those are some awesome pictures
S- I honestly think the cblogs are as good as ever... just the faces keep changing. This one is questionable though :P


F- Sorry, but when you ask what is an acceptable cblog then follow it up with one that you didn't even bother to proofread...
F- Yeah, please stop directing this stuff to the forums. This wouldn't cut it there either

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.
