Cblogs of 9/26/09 and 9/27/09 + SilverDragonisms


After being gone the last two weekends, I've returned to take back over my duties as the Cblog Weekend Recapper. Besides being absent from my recap duties, I've also been absent from the site, thanks in part to a lot of time I've been spending playing games and writing reviews for Gamer Limit. I hope to make an effort this week to actually get back to writing some Cblogs of my own. You should probably expect the first one tomorrow, as I'm already in the process of writing it.

So I hope everyone had a great weekend, because I sure did. First of all, my two main sports team kicked some major ass this weekend. My North Carolina State Wolfpack beat Pittsburgh in an intense football battle on Saturday, 38 to 31. The today, my San Diego Chargers beat the Miami Dolphins, as Philip Rivers threw for 303 yards. My arch rival, the UNC Tar Heels, also lost a crucial game to Georgia Tech, so that also added to my great weekend.

Another reason this weekend was great was because my girlfriend and I celebrated our anniversary by going on our first ever horse trail ride together. It was essentially the first time I've ever been on a horse, so it was a brand new experience for me. My girlfriend, on the other hand, owns a horse and has been riding for almost 20 years. As long as we've dated she has always wanted to go riding together, so today we finally did. I have to admit I was pretty damn scared, especially since it has rained the last 2 days, so the ground was saturated and really muddy. I got through it ok though, and had an absolutely great time.

For everyone's viewing pleasure, I included a picture of me from today on the horse I rode. Check it out below. Now let's get to those weekend recaps shall we.

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.
