LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 5/25/10 + Pendeltonisms

   0


A bit of a crazy today. Moved out of my last college apartment to finally get all my shit home (read: parent’s house). Almost fully set up with all my cool shit in my room. Next week I’ll have pics of my new set-up, either up here or in a cblog (whenever the fuck I get around to making those again). This is, in fact, the first thing I’ve written at my new work station! Be proud, recap: you’re making history right now!

Alright, enough talking to inanimate…objects (how do you classify a cblog?), let’s get to the ‘caps, as the kids call ‘em nowadays.



*- Om Nom On Souls, while suffering from writer’s block, still produced this great blog about game characters.

*- Taking the place of Rev Anthony’s Monthly Musings, the community has taken it upon themselves to keep the topics coming. This month’s: how games are associated with our families.

*- So here’s a new series devoted to interviewing Cblog celebs. This week: Occams electric toothbrush!

*- Results and videos from the FI: Mark of The Wolves Cblog Tournament.

*- Soon to be the top item on everyone’s Christmas list, The Modurn Warfairz 2 Limited Edition Xbox 360.

*- Topsauced only to shed light on the craziest Tumblr I’ve ever seen: Can Mario Fuck It?

*- Stevil gives us another incredible Gamer Obscura about the Police Quest series.

*- Though you’ve probably already bought it if you really wanted to, here’s a wonderful review of GTA4: Episodes from Liberty City.

*- Though I wholeheartedly disagree with the man, BenelliM4 still put out a great piece about why he hates Portal.

*- You had me at the first image: check out this great write-up about the new shmup Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype.

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.
