A bit different from the Vangelis version. Think I played this game before I saw the film, never finished it, will download it at some point.

Re: With the popularity of DLC nowadays..

I hate DLC.

But I would buy every piece of DLC for Shenmue III :) I hope if the stretch goals aren't realised that they propose them at a later date as DLC.

Re: Who remembers Shenmue 2 announcement?

I remember waiting ages to load the QuickTime trailer on my crappy ISDN connection. Watched Xiuying wave her arms about 50 times while waiting for the rest of the trailer to load.

Re: Yu Suzuki - Reddit AMA Today!

Another question to ask at the AMA is at what time the AMA will happen.

Also he should talk to the kickstarter team about the benefits of using am and pm.

This. I don't want to rag too much on them, but... 9:30PM PST??!! Europe is asleep then! That's a huge potential userbase being neglected. Even some people on the East Coast of the US won't be on reddit for the AMA. I've been a redditor for 4 years, really poor handling of the AMA so far. I know they couldn't announce it before the 16th because it would give away the surprise but what announcing it straight after and then having it at a later date so more people will know about it? :/

For people new to reddit, you can check what questions Suzuki-san has answered quickly by looking at his user profile: http://www.reddit.com/user/Yu_Suzuki

Click "context" below each response to see the question to which he is responding.

I asked again if he still practices martial arts and what made him choose jujitsu as the Hazuki art, awaiting response, please upvote :) http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/3ahcwf/i_am_yu_suzuki_new_posting/cscnx9x

Re: SHENMUE 3 ANNOUNCED FOR PS4 KICKSTARTER (INFORMATION INS

Bought a wired 360 controller a few months ago to game with on my laptop and was wondering if I could use it for Shenmue III or if I'd have to use a Dual Shock 4 even for the PC version, when it hit me...

No more A, B, X, Y for QTEs.

We'll be seeing Square, Circle, Triangle and X in Shenmue.

What a mind trip. Never thought that would happen back in 2000.

Re: Wasting money on smaller languages

It won't cost 400k to write the subtitles. It's just how the strech goals are laid out.
I think it's a good thing that they actually planned these subtitles from the very beginning.

Shenmue and Shenmue II got some bad feedback for not having German subtitles (or any other then English in the PAL version for that matter) and I know of people that don't play the game because they can't get into the story that much without having native language subtitles. That is the biggest thing. People didn't play the game becuase of that, it alienated gamers by only having english subtitles.

Shenmue III should not fall into a niche product category by not offering translated subtitles, like every other game does today. I know Shenmue is niche and III is only a Kickstarter game but come on, this is NOT a waste of money.

Yeah, I think they just included the subtitles as stretch goals to get people from those countries to donate, clever idea.

Re: Lets remake the Kickstarter video



Looking great, man! And yeah, the layout of the posts above yours is broken in my browser, too.

Seeing that motorcycle race to get Nozomi brings back memories. I couldn't complete it for ages because I fucked up both my Dreamcast controllers' R triggers from Crazy Dashing/Limit Cutting all the time in Crazy Taxi: one of them was loose so it'd get stuck all the time, and the other wouldn't go down all the way so I couldn't go full speed on the bike in Shenmue!
Haha, good times! I loved Crazy Taxi. Would always play as Gus or Hot D. Could never do the bowling pins minigame though :sad:

FUCK THAT BOWLING MINI-GAME.

I tried to complete the final bowling level last summer, came so close a couple of times, I rage-quit after about half an hour.

Re: Some serious backlash incoming in re: S3 KS campaign

They're just trolling/generating clickbait. Some godawful Gizmodo article comes up in Google News for Shenmue which honestly reads like it was written by a barely literate 12-year-old. I get why some people dislike Shenmue, and I've seen well-articulated pieces expressing such thoughts, but this was just awful, obviously got pass editorial since they knew it would make people angry, which is always good for revenue.

Just let it slide, guys, if you get angry then you've let them win.

Selling parts of my Dreamcast collection to raise money, including a spare PAL copy of Shenmue II I got as part of a bundle that I never touched (not selling any of my other Shenmue stuff, though, that's blasphemy!). Thanks to this Kickstarter Shenmue II has really gone up in price!

Re: Kickstarter Update #12 - Vote for your favourite charact

So my votes were as follows-

Fave character- Ren
Reward I'd pay most for- Dragon/Phoenix mirrors
Fave mini game- duck racing


Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

Voted the same for all of these, even though I've never gotten round to the duck racing in Shenmue II (need to get on that!). Arm wrestling would have been my 2nd choice, though I'd be curious to see new mini-games.

Dunno what I'd think about being in Shenmue III, "WTF is this mumbling Middle Eastern looking guy doing in Guilin?!"

Re: Response from Joel "The Red Shirt Guy" Tess & Awesome Ja

as much as I would like Corey Marshall back for VO, if only one dub (Japanese) meant more story, more features, more Shenmue I'd take that over having an English dub. I'd remove all the other languages as well and just make the subtitle files in the game modifiable and let the fan community sort out the translations. That would free up almost half a million for other more important stretch goals.

Just leave the entire English dub to Corey Marshall, including Shenhua and every NPC.

Re: My ugly face on a Lucky Hit board

Did they update the Lucky Hit text or did it always say this?

"BE A TECHNIQUE SCROLL LUCKY HIT GAME BOARD

Do you want to be a game of lucky hit? Get your face and name on an in-game Lucky Hit board featuring a Technique Scroll.

+ 50 Lucky Hit Tickets (In-game Item)"

Hmmm, playing Lucky Hit to get Technique Scrolls, don't think I like this idea...

Totally updated. Before it was just the lucky hit face and corey marshall voice. Looks like they saw no one grab it and updated it to include the I AM SHENMUE reward and the tickets too. Still priced too high, should be $2500

I don't even think the I AM SHENMUE was there when I looked at it! Wow, they updated that fast...

Re: Adam Doree leaving Kikizo?

Well, whether or not that 2005 article was a load of bollocks (most likely) or not (unlikely), Doree was almost right about one thing...

"As for Shenmue, I would have to say at this stage, it is worth forgetting about. If all the fans get any rich relatives together and channel it though Dojo perhaps we could buy rights, hire Suzuki (he’d likely say yes) and independently make the game under license from Sega at no risk to them. That is the only way it will get made at this stage I think. "

Re: KS Update #26 - Fan appreciation

Never expected an Iranian to be one of the biggest Shenmue fans, wonder if he first played the game in Iran? I don't remember seeing any Dreamcasts there, PlayStation and Mega Drives were king when I spent summers in Tehran and Isfahan. Hope he smiles seeing an Iranian name on the Choubu Inn register ;)

Re: 2 New Rewards @ $1200 and @ $1400

They seem to be losing the plot it seems and are fixated on the success of the $1500 tier...

..This isn't helpful for the KS..

Well I upped again from $800 to $1200 so something's working :P

If the $1500 included the $1200 then I'd probably stretch to that, too, tweeted Cedric and @Shenmue_3 about it a few times but no response.

Re: KS Update #29 - Dreams Come True - New Rewards

Just noticed the $160 reward has 20 capsule toy tickets, was that always there?

Yea it must have been Amir, because they said that once someone backs a tier they can't change the description for it.

"*Changes to Reward pledge buttons are not allowed after they are pledged for, so please see the "Rewards" section below for complete reward details"

Adding $1200 to all higher tiers, which they could easily do since apart from the physical calligraphy print all this content is just digital would definately mean the rest of those $1500 tiers would be snapped up imo, and then possibly might increase the $3000, and $4000 tiers aswell if everything higher included from the $1200 tier downwards.

I've messaged a bunch of people about this but still no response :/ Like you said, part from the calligraphy print it's all digital stuff so it wouldn't cost much more to implement.
