While it looks like it is already funded, after only one night, we need to keep in mind that a fully functional modern HD story based game starts at 10 million dollars and goes up from there. So spread the word!
That is, unless we want an "indie" Shenmue III, spread the word and get the GREAT Yu Suzuki, Tak Hirai and the rest of Ys Net Inc to make the Shenmue III we should have had on the Dreamcast or Xbox back in 2002-03!

Sorry for the delay folks, not that an "archive" site like GP even cares about down time. "Why were you down GP?" one probably would not ask. Two local computers failed, but fortunately none of the drives failed except one, which was not a storage disk. GP also had to change hosting plans, which disconnected the website until now.
All comparisons made or implied do_not imply preference of any kind unless otherwise stated. All preference statements, and observations on qualitative subjects, are made honestly and without complete mastery of every online comment ever made on the topic. Preferring one thing over another does not imply irrationality or negation of any facts. The word "hypocrite" means dissembler or stage actor, meaning that the "actor" is aware of his falsehood.
The grand experiment is over! "What experiment?" you might say, should you care to read and ponder? Are popular online "communities" known as forums treasure troves of solid information? Does pouring historical and technical facts into one or all of these popular communities result in more technical or historical discussion of the Video Game Industry? That answer is a resounding ... sometimes but very rarely. Instead forums, as originally suspected, are argument factories first, outlets for unfounded opinion posting second, and places to vent all around.
What does that mean for Game Pilgrimage? More updates. Below is a sneak peak of the Comparisons that will finally see completion in the highest quality possible starting this week (no really!).

1. Retired this old clunky updates page in favor of Drupal's default front page. Updates will now be automatically generated based on whatever pages I create or update.
