Cblogs of 8/8/09 and 8/9/09 + SilverDragonisms


So I finally unwrapped my 9 month old copy of Resistance 2, and started playing it for the first time this weekend. I have to tell you, after playing other great games like Killzone 2 and Gears of War 2, this game just does not cut it. I'm almost completely done with the single player campaign and I have not been impressed at all so far. The graphics are sub-par, the story is completely contrived, and the action is very cookie cutter.

You need to understand that I loved the first Resistance: Fall of Man, so I had my hopes high for this sequel. So far those hopes have only been crushed. Now I haven't played the multiplayer yet, and I've heard good things about it, but the single player campaign is just crap. This makes the 2nd game in a row that I have been disappointed with. First there was MadWorld last week, and now Resistance 2 this week. What the hell is going on here?

Besides these crappy games, I have some pretty stressful stuff going on in my personal life right now. All in all, I have to say the last week was pretty shitty for me. I'm hoping things make a turn for the better soon, but right now I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. Anyways, I'm not going to bore you with the details of my personal life, and there are much more important things to talk about, like the Cblog recaps.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

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.
