LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 6/8/10 + Returnisms

   0


Iíve finally done it, folks. After months and months of letting my other account get cluttered with dust and vanilla-frosting-filled condoms (Iím assuming), Iím finally going to revive my dormant cblog tomorrow! If youíve only known me for my writing I do here, be prepared to be amazed and delighted by what I can show you when given more room than a paragraph above the recaps. I will have a new episode of my long-lost cblog series Level-Headed, featuring my favorite zombie-inspired level in a game. I will then follow that up with a couple of other posts as the week continues. Hopefully, you all will take me back into your loving cblog arms, where I will feel loved and kinda sweaty. See ya tomorrow!



*- SenorDoucheoisie returns to the cblogs with some more microgames, video of the Burch/Davis wedding, and ketchup eating.

*- Stevil is a little baby-man who cries at the end of gamesÖspecifically, these ones.

*- YAAY Whatíd You Get IS BACK.

*- Kinjiro writes a damn good post looking into the stigmas that we, as gamers, must face.

*- And Enkido retorts with an equally well-made post.

*- What if the current generation of consoles didnít exist? Also, what if an old woman rode around on a Hoveround on a unicorn?

*- LawofThermalDynamics has another community interview (with Stevil this time) for you all to enjoy.

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.
