LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 4/5/09 + Jimboisms

   0




I'm back... reading the cblogs of Destructoid in all its totality and recapping them for your reading pleasure. Your usual Cblog Recapper unfortunately couldn't make the proceedings tonight due to his prior commitment to a swingers convention. Go get them tiger. So since I'm your recapper tonight I thought I would use this opportunity to address the new DSi and a cblogger who has moved on to greener pastures. A gentleman who was a constant fixture on our cblogs. I, of course, am talking about Matthew "Cowzilla" Razak.

Matthew graduates to Weekend Destructoid editor. I would like to extend congratulations to him by his Cblog name one last time and toast. I raise my glass to Cowzilla and wish him much success on a very well earned position. Best of luck brother.

You gotta love a place that hires from the community. Seriously how awesome is Destructoid? That awesome Ladies & Gents. Who's next to move up the ranks of the Destructoid Hierarchy? Next up Nihon Tiger for Editor! Or maybe it will be you.

Now that I have gotten that out of the way, let us take a closer look at what was before. Spoiler Alert: There were a lot of interesting, newsy, strange, fun and plain fail things you may have missed.

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.
