LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 4/7/09 + Pendeltonisms

   0


Without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite games is Lumines. I havenít been gaming much on my laptop recently (because itís shit), but I did some digging last week and found I had Lumines on it. And Iíve played it for about 5 hours each day the past week. Iím not sure if itís because of the music, the visuals, or the new puzzle type they developed, but I can safely say that Lumines is the greatest puzzle game ever created.

Tetris can suck it.

Alright, now with that flamebait out of the way, letís move on to the recaps! Today, weíve got unstopablejuggernaut making me feel like Iím playing Left 4 Dead with him, 2 different views on the new Bionic Commando game, and a few new members joining our ranks.

For you, the day Pendelton recapped the Cblogs was the most important day of your life. For me, it was a Tuesday.



*-FRONT. PAGE. THIS. IMMEDIATELY. A letter to The Combine Overwatch (possibly one of the best things Iíve ever read on the cblogs).

*-ygro looks back on his history of gaming with his first love: PC games.

*-Since there isnít a section to put blogs I want to have sex with, I guess this will be good enough: juggernaut makes the craziest video ever. And, Jesus Christ, hereís another one.

*-Still my favorite cblog articles, this weekís Dtoid Community Discussion is about GDC.

*-Professor Pew reviews the new Hannah Montana game AND gets put on a sex offender registry at the same time!

*-Who here wants a beautiful, amazingly well-crafted, handmade Destructoid helmet from craineum?

*-THIS IS WHY I LOVE THIS COMMUNITY: megaStryke writes a great response to Tascarís Nintendo article.

*-Like you didnít already know this was gonna be up here: todayís GrumpyTurtle pics.

*-Darth Vader mixed with Bricktop from Snatch. Holy shitÖ

*-Hahaha, a list I never knew could be made: the top 10 JUMPS in gaming. Awesome.

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.
