Re: Shenmue III teaser is FINALLY HERE!!

Why's it become such a seemingly negative thing to raise genuine concerns about a franchise you want to succeed? I waited my entire life for a Batman/Superman film and was pretty happy to debate why I reckon it's great with those who thought it was a trainwreck. I don't seem to recall telling anyon...

Re: Shenmue III teaser is FINALLY HERE!!

"What YSnet said or did doesn't matter because WE said so and it doesn't fit our narrative"

I had no idea the Dojo had so many successful marketing experts among its members tbh.

Jokes aside, lads, you're tilting at windmills.

Re: Shenmue III teaser is FINALLY HERE!!

YSnet doesn't consider it a promotional effort, so I can't fathom why we keep going in circles about it supposedly being an "ad". Their word is the end of it. They know what they made. YSnet's own language on the Kickstarter is that it's a progress video. Even the Playstation YouTube video...

Re: Should there be an in game mini map for Shenmue 3?

We saw a peek at a mini-map in the March update video, so it's at least being considered. It looked sort of like an evolution of the mini-maps from Shenmue II, so it wouldn't be out of step with the series if they did make it in. I think there's maybe a case for including a mini-map regardless. The ...

Re: PAYPAL SUPPORT FOR SHENMUE 3! PRE-ORDER FOR PS4/PC!

Every extra bit of funding helps, but Deep Silver's money is clearly going a lot further seeing how it's significantly expanded the scope of the game. Not that the Slacker Backer funds are useless. Nobody knows how YSnet are using them, but maybe it's paying overtime hours for contractors, or being ...

Re: PAYPAL SUPPORT FOR SHENMUE 3! PRE-ORDER FOR PS4/PC!

It's probably an awareness issue. I dunno if even a fraction of the people who saw the progress video on YouTube even knew you could still contribute to the game. Not that it's really essential now. Whatever's coming from Deep Silver's pockets is going to outstrip whatever the Slacker Backer site ha...

Re: Shenmue III teaser is FINALLY HERE!!

I'll add an elaboration. I've mostly said my piece, but my last post is a little thin on the ground. When you are genuinely wondering about the viewership not being able to read the video description because of the app they're using - you're making excuses. When you're bringing back the old chestnut...

It is genuinely baffling the lengths some of you are going to defend the ignorant. Jeeeeeeesus.

Re: Shenmue III teaser is FINALLY HERE!!

And again, there are examples of times when YSnet put work in progress disclaimers right on screen... and people still didn't use their fucking heads about it being pre-release and subject to change.

Don't argue for the morons who can't put 2 and 2 together. They're not worth it.

Re: Shenmue III teaser is FINALLY HERE!!

It's funny how half the gameplay-related discussions here are filled with hand-wringing about "casualisation" and not wanting Shenmue III to appeal to the lowest common denominator, but in this thread there are arguments being made for making progress videos slicker for the sake of people ...

Re: Shenmue III teaser is FINALLY HERE!!

I don't understand why we have to constantly absolve a section of an audience of their ignorance, but feel the need to roast YSnet over the fire when they had a complicated situation to deal with, compounded by an unforeseen development blip that affected a majority of what they wanted to show. Coul...

Re: Shenmue III teaser is FINALLY HERE!!

Yep. Lake of the Lantern Bugs is a great example of how it doesn't matter how clearly YSnet mark materials as subject to change. The only other option was not releasing any footage, and risking angering nutcases like Waves & co over in the KS comments, or inciting clickbait "OMG IS SHENMUE ...

Re: Shenmue III teaser is FINALLY HERE!!

Who is handling their marketing at this stage. Is it still Awesome Japan or was that just for the Kickstarter? Awesome Japan are Kickstarter administration with some limited PR capacity. That's likely not changed much. Yes, Shenmue III could have had a warning that it was still in development and a...
