I'm going to be completely honest with all of you. Last night I got extremely emotional and practically cried my eyes out as I watched the final episode of Battlestar Galactica. I say this without regret, and without being embarrassed, because what I watched last night was 2 of the most beautiful hours of cinema ever put on the small screen. The episode had everything from epic battle scenes, to touching and deeply emotional death scenes. It took you on an emotional rollercoaster ride from beginning to end and never let go until the screen faded to black for the very last time. If there was ever a way to end a television drama, that episode was it.

For those of you out there who have not yet watched or experienced the 4 season long arc of the new Battlestar Galactica, you are truly missing out on the best science fiction drama on television. You don't even need to be a fan of science fiction to enjoy it, because the truth is, the show is really just a drama, that happens to take place in a science fiction setting. I have watched this show for the last 6 years, and I can say without any doubt, that this is the best science fiction show on television. I can't tell you how many times I have watched this show and had some type of emotional response to it. Whether that means jumping up from my seat and screaming out in joy, or lowering my head as tears streamed down my face, this show packs a punch. The story telling and character study is presents is absolutely at the head of the class. It is a show that I will always remember, and that I will probably watch over and over and over for decades to come.

Good bye Battlestar Galactica. You will me missed .....

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.
