LONG BLOG

Cblogs of 7/14/09 + Pendeltonisms

Late night tonight, folks. I recently bought me a PSP for the 2nd time, and, since Iíve got nothing better to talk about, hereís a shitty 1 sentence review of every game Iíve played on the system since I bought it:

Lumines 2: The best puzzle game, ever, hands down.
Mega Man: Powered Up: The best Mega Man game, ever, hands down.
Gunpey: The 2nd best puzzle game, ever.
Mega Man X Maverick Hunter: Great, but it bastardizes the Storm Eagle music (i.e. greatest gaming music ever).
Patapon 2: OMG THE CUTTEST THING EVAR.
Crisis Core FF7: If you liked/loved any of the continuing saga games/movies, youíll love this.
Popolocrois: Why arenít people talking more about this awesome RPG?

And thatís it. Now, as for the recap, all Iím gonna say is this:

Jesus, people, you need to start posting your amazing blogs on OTHER days of the week. The Topsauce is getting pretty crowded on Tuesday nights!

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.
