Cblogs recaps of 07/03 and Striderisms

   0




How funny is this? I'm recapping the day before the 4th of July. Who's going to recap on the 4th? Our resident Dutch recapper, Shade. Do the Dutch know anything about America's Independence Day? They probably know we had a movie starring Will Smith and it's how we gained our independence from alien invaders who wanted to enslave/destroy/parlay with us. That's probably enough actually.

Jinx is also probably expecting me to finish and upload the Fapcast soon. I told him it'd be done soon and to expect Valve time to rear its ugly head. Yeah, it'll be done when it's done. We never rushed Duke Nukem did we?

My style of Animal Crossing so far has been rather relaxed compared to other mayors. Alphadeus or Mayor Pas, has a very aggressive system of fundraising for both his town and his residence. My I hear other mayors like Mayor Levi, or Zompieplatypus, put a bit more focus in their town before diverting funds into his home. Me on the other hand, I've put more effort into my town rather than my home, but that doesn't mean I'm proactive in fundraising for either. Anyone playing New Leaf knows that the best way to earn money is to grind on the tropical island. But I don't want to grind in Animal Crossing. That isn't the point to me. I do like going to the island with friends though.

Animal Crossing to me is the daily change and greeting of the day. I play it everyday to see what's new in town: the store is remodeling, there's a new shirt I want in the Able Sisters, a new fossil I haven't discovered, a new project to be finished. Even when I theoretically catalog all the items there are and I don't need to see anymore new items and my stores are fully upgraded, there's still the neighbors I want to catch up with and the other mayors I want to visit to see what their towns are up to. And like true Animal Crossing, it doesn't have to end there. There's always a new goal to set for yourself to make the game appealing.

I recently decided to pave roads in my town via patterns. In previous games, it seemed like a hassle to design an entire pattern just to walk over, let alone devoting a space to my pattern collection to it. But I can use the 3DS camera to scan QR codes of interesting patterns. I already  have an N7 shirt pattern thanks to the Internet and QR codes.

I didn't even need to scan a code for my path really. I borrowed a pavement pattern off the Internet through the Dream Suite. Generous towns can share the patterns they used through Wendell and I was very fond of one town's pavement style. Older Crossing fans will remember Wendell as the starving artists type of walrus who gave away rare wallpapers in previous games. Now, he browses the Dream Suite for interesting food because he loves how he never gets truly hungry while dreaming. Of course, you can set your dream to not share patterns, in the case of one certain dream town.

I decided to go an extra mile and plant extra flower gardens and pavement, since my town was showing signs of extra grass wear. I currently have pavement down between the train station to Retail, to my house, with a t-bone intersection to my goodwill fence (like the dump in OG AC) leading too my cafe.

So I got a request in from my favorite townie, Hopper, to build a lighthouse. I haven't paid off my mortgage either. Looks like a lighthouse is being built.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
Changes

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.
