Re: So happy for the words PHYSICAL COPY (MN9 fallout contin

Compared to the Famicom Rockman box arts:

Much like MN9 itself; vaguely resembles what its supposed to be, but with absolutely none of the charm.

Re: So happy for the words PHYSICAL COPY (MN9 fallout contin

considering that physical copies at that price point is the norm and they knew that due to that very few people would look further in to it, I would say that yes, it is willful deception. I find it very hard to believe that they didn't realise that the majority of people would automatically back it...

Re: So happy for the words PHYSICAL COPY (MN9 fallout contin

Is it deceiving, though? It does seem a lot of people are jumping to conclusions or didn't read the product description.

Shoddy quality aside, that is.

Re: So happy for the words PHYSICAL COPY (MN9 fallout contin

I can see why they'd ship it as a flatpack, as having nothing actually in the physical box makes it several more times likely to get damaged/crushed in transit, but the manual not fitting in the Japanese box version is a massive oversight. The box design also looks... cheap as fuck.

Re: Shenmue III @Gamescom '17 Discussion - [WAIT] - [QUIT]

Added a countdown timer to the OP. I'll replace it with an amended one if we get more specific information about when Shenmue III will be shown, but until then it's set for the opening of Gamescom on its first day, 22nd August.

Less than 35 days to go!

Re: Shenmue III @Gamescom '17 Discussion - [WAIT] - [QUIT]

The salt would be beautiful if that happened. Don't you think they will upload everything they show at the gamescom in the August update? Clips, images, info... That would be the best option in my opinion. Oh that's almost definitely what's going to happen. It's just the PR aspect that means we may ...

Re: Shenmue III @Gamescom '17 Discussion - [WAIT] - [QUIT]

The update isn't even ambiguous on that point. It outright says backers should stay tuned to games media for the information as it comes in, which makes attempts to manufacture controversy even stupider . YSnet aren't even done announcing their plans (you'd think calling the last update "#1&quo...

Haha. Hope the creative industries are treating you well. ------------ On the subject of the KS comments, there's one guy who's just like a pied piper of madness over there. I dipped into his posting history the other day to see if he's always been like that and... yep. Guy was a fruitloop from the ...

Re: Shenmue III @Gamescom '17 Discussion - [WAIT] - [QUIT]

In terms of volume, there seems to be a lot of European outlets who picked it up and are spinning it negatively in the article titles. Even Gameblog did that, which is incredibly frustrating as it's been a Shenmue-friendly site in the past. You can find them pretty easily searching Shenmue on Twitte...

Re: Shenmue III @Gamescom '17 Discussion - [WAIT] - [QUIT]

It's not a controversial or unusual way to show the game at all, which ultimately why it's even more puzzling that some games media sites are trying to portray it as such.

Re: Shenmue III @Gamescom '17 Discussion - [WAIT] - [QUIT]

Fingers crossed for the press pass. There's nothing in the criteria (that I can see) which would exclude the Dojo/Peter from being accepted, so I guess now it's just down to chance. If you get the pass, you'll probably have to book an appointment with whoever is handling the PR for Shenmue III's sho...

Re: Kickstarter Update #70: Gamescom 2017 Update #1

I think there's an element of frustration with some people here who have bought public tickets to the event and now know they won't get to see anything of what Ys are going to show. I think it's fair enough to be somewhat irked if you're forking out dollar on travel and accommodation on top of the ...

Re: Shenmue III @Gamescom '17 Discussion - [WAIT] - [QUIT]

They are definitely keeping the game at arm's length, despite the attempt to look a bit warmer towards it when it was obvious it'd smash KS records, but I wouldn't say we were off the mark. Promotional/marketing deals do mean press conference time in most cases, so it was reasonable to expect Sony t...

Re: Shenmue III @Gamescom '17 Discussion - [WAIT] - [QUIT]

Yeah, half an hour of footage is a little much to hope for. I have to say, I think I might be more excited about YSnet having a room at the event to take meetings/show the game off/do interviews than just having Shenmue III pop up at a conference. Bodes well for a more in-depth look overall. EDIT: O...
