Re: Kickstarter Update 51: Poll Results & Shenmue.link revam

If it's any consolation, I bet my physical PS4 copy of Shenmue 3 that we would have endured the same bashing from the same clickbaits medias who are spreading false news now, if AJ/YsNet decided to make the exclusive rewards available for slacker backer campaign.

I almost see the article title: "Greedy Yu Suzuki breaks rewards exclusivity for a few more bucks despite 25% of the voters were clearly against this!"

I'm wondering... where are the professional journalists? Where are the honest articles ready to restore the truth about a bad communication ok, but definitely an attempt of "Awesome Japan" to do the right thing?

The bashing has been so harsh since E3 announcement that sometimes I have the feeling it's fuelled by interests bigger than our small but beloved Shenmue franchise. Maybe it wouldn't be so biased if Shenmue 3 was multiplatform... If you know what I mean?

Re: Sega Europe comments on Shenmue

As much as I want to believe..... It's Sega.

If they promoted the Kickstarter, or even Shennue 3 in general, then yes, I'd believe in a heartbeat. Promotion of Shennue would mean more sales of a HD release, which in turn would mean more sales of Shennue 3.

Sega doesn't like money folks.

Re: Sega Europe comments on Shenmue

Hey guys,

In order to give you a thorough understanding of yesterday discussion I had with Thomas Hobbs, here's the end of our "chat" on Twitter:

@thobbsjourno @segafans Thanks for the answer. Hopefully you read correctly between the lines in the Shenmue related part of your interview!

@KosiCosa I'm confused. Nothing changed. It is a marketing publication so Shenmue info was paraphrased/not 100% quoted. Hope that clarifies?

He sent me another tweet but apparently deleted it in the meantime.
I still have it on my Twitter iPhone app though.
@KosiCosa I'm just as excited they are 'exploring ways' for a HD remake. About bloody time!

@thobbsjourno You're a Shenmue fan too I guess? If so, YES, I understand your excitement! Thanks again for your kind replies! #SaveShenmueHD

He did retweet the message above, so I take it as a YES to my question :D

Re: Monaco Magic 2016

In all honesty, I don't really understand why Magic Monaco staff asked Cédric to take care of the Shenmue Forever original tweet. It didn't seem to be related to this "amazing new thing" they will announce during Magic Monaco and about which Cédric tweeted a few days ago.

That said I totally agree with you about Magic Monaco beeing a lot more than just an event revolving around Shenmue 3. I sincerely hope this event will gain some reputation worldwide and become a major event for pop-culture (anime, cosplay and videogames), at least in Europe...

As for hyped and crazy reactions of Shenmue fans for every piece of tease, I'm sure Cédric is well aware of how crazy (but at the same time passionate) the Shenmue fans are. :lol:

Thank you very much Yokosuka, great translation =D>

A lot of informations in this interview.

I feel kind of confident about the Marketing of the PS4 version, I'm sure Sony can manage a great campaign for Shenmue 3 launch... if they feel confident in the game qualities.

According to Cédric, an appearance of Shenmue 3 at E3 2016 is not totally out of the question!

Re: Monaco Magic 2016 - Official Discussion Topic

I can't even tell you whether something will happen at E3 but perhaps we'll decide to show something new.
Original : [...] je ne peux même pas te dire qu'il se passera quelque chose à l'E3, mais peut-être qu'on décidera à un moment donné de montrer à nouveau quelque chose de neuf.

Cédric has currently nothing in mind to show off at E3. I think it will depend of the development circumstances.

At least, that's the way I understood it. I don't think Cédric talked with a disclosure tone.

Well, your translation is absolutely correct. The way I understand it is that Cédric cannot confirm if there will be or not something Shenmue 3 related during the E3 2016.

In my opinion it's slightly different compared to the affermative headline "No Plans To Show The Game During E3 2016."

As you said, it will probably depend on development circumstances. Cédric said later in the interview that big events such as the E3 are very important to them. I think they will try to show something if it's "Wow reaction" material but for sure, they will keep it a surprise as long as possible.

Re: Monaco Magic 2016 - Official Discussion Topic

Thanks Yoko :)

The latest misleading news I'm reading on a few websites is about the alleged NON presence of Shenmue 3 material at E3 2016.

I may be wrong, but I didn't read anything from Yu and Cédric confirming there will be NO Shenmue 3 at E3 2016.
I only read in the Cédric interview that he can't confirmed Shenmue 3 presence at E3. Did I miss something?

I've the impression that some medias misunderstood Yu Suzuki's statement about the trial version not being ready for 2016.

Anyway, this isn't very important but it shows how easily misreported Shenmue 3 news can spread:

Re: What would you include in Shenmue 3 so it's more realist

The NPC AI talk reminds me of Suzuki San interview at GDC 2014:

Suzuki recalls an amusing bug where everyone disappeared

Shenmue was notable for offering the concept of in-game characters having schedules - waking up, going to work and eating at specific times - all powered by AI and scripting.

"I remember this because it took a long time to find cause," he explained.

"The cause was a convenience store. In the morning. All of the NPCs (non-playing characters) in the warehouse district went to buy breakfast at the store, which became congested. They became stuck because they couldn't get out."

The solution was two fold; to increase the size of the automatic door, and limit occupancy of the convenience store.

Re: Yu Suzuki interview by Shenmue Dojo & Team Yu (MAGIC 201

If it's a readability problem - Western kids not being able to read joined-up writing (first I've heard of that) - then why not just keep the original logo and seperate the letters?

Come on, Yu. Sort it out! The original logo is iconic.
The Papyrus logo looks actually like a convenient attempt to make the original one separated. They might wait the work of a professional designer to do a proper conversion/new version before the first official trailer.

The original logo was deeply significant to me but if that's his will, I can deal with it. This part explains it well:
With the word being unfamiliar to all other languages, perhaps at least making it more easily readable is an important step to avoid premature dismissal by casual browsers of game store shelves.

It's not really a question of readability but fast-readability and easy-memorizing. YSnet have probably been advised by Sony or another marketing expert while Yu wants to do everything in his power to prevent Shenmue III from poor sales.

I agree with your analysis.
But there must be a different way to make the word S-h-e-n-m-u-e more readable.
It's just my personal opinion... I can't stand the papyrus font, especiallly versus the original one. :???:

http://i.imgur.com/DCWjEBO.jpg

I don't say the last font is better than the papyrus but only that it take 5 minutes to do something playing around with a standard font set.

Anyway, if that the only thing we have to "complain about" by the end of the development, I'm more than happy :mrgreen:

I've been tempted too this last days to make a pledge and put the 6.6M$ mark behind us!
Since baby number two is expected very soon now, my wife would have killed me though :lol:
Do you want your kid to grow up in a world where Shenmue 3 didn't make 6.6 million on Friday the 29th? It would be irresponsible not to donate!

Don't make me think about the world my kids are going to grow in... :-&

...

When they will be grown up enough, I will make them play Shenmue. So educative!

1. Avenge your father if needed!
2. Don't forget to feed the cat!
3. Remove your dirty shoes when coming home!
4. Arcades are cool and the only bike you will ever ride is the one from Hang-On.
5. Daddy used to listen to music on a device called "tape player".
5b. That doesn't mean daddy is old. It means daddy has a lot of experience.
6. Girls are overrated...
7. Sailors are hard to find, especially 500 miles away from the Sea!
8. If you think it's boring to drive a forklift all day, you better have good grades at school!
9. No, Ine-San CANNOT work for us!
10. Gollum, Chai and Oncle Benny are NOT the same person!
11. Yes, you need to finish your carrots!
