Re: Phil Spencer - The Biggest Request is to Bring Back Shen

I hate when people talk about Shenmue like it sold 2 copies.

It's one of the best selling games on dreamcast !

If the shitty games (like REALLY SHITY) that david cage does make profit, Shenmue can fuck that number over. It's marketing, just put some phrases like: "one of the most awaited games in VG history" "revolutionized videogames" "like nothing you played before", pay for some good reviews and the fanbase is going to get the hype over 9000.

A LOT of people knows about Shenmue that haven't even played the games.

It will not be a killer app, but it will bring a lot of new buyers, and it will certainly be a better exclusive to show off than pretty much 80% of exclusives.

Re: Yu Suzuki at Gamelab 2014 (Information & Multimedia)


People underestimate the popularity of this series alot.


I think it's the other way around, Shenmue fans overestimate the popularity. I study videogame programming in a group of 20 no one has played shenmue, and not even professors (they just know it was a really innovative game, and appears from time to time in the powerpoints).

People KNOW about shenmue because we are a vocal crowd, most people haven't even played shenmue. Even at the time shenmue was a love/hate game.

Let's not create this ecochamber of thinking about shenmue like the most requested game in all history and revered as the best game ever made, it's not. We just yell louder (as a lot of little communities do).

Re: SHENMUE 3 ANNOUNCED FOR PS4 KICKSTARTER (INFORMATION INS

FUck yeah, a let's play commentated by Yu Suzuki would be incredible.

Gametrailers is doing one of Shenmue II, would be awesome to see Huber, Yu Suzuki, Rocco from mega64, or some guys hyping the shit of Shenmue for people that haven't played it.

The whole 70 man battle scenes, the third disk of shenmue II, the ending.

Don't make it 1 hour long, but something like 15 minutes hyping the shit out of the game.

+1 to the mirrors replicas.

The documentary is great, but actually quite expensive, DF hurted a lot, it was awesome (even more so than the actual game), but just saying "exclusive making of videos for X tier backers" would be great.

I remember that I would not turn off the pc for almost a week to see that trailer. It was an ordeal because every phonecall could kill the load.

Some guy made this, shenmue is quite strong

But I think they're not counting actual "days" of the kickstarter but real days.


at its new current rate we are look at an absolute maximum of $6.9m.

There's always a very big push last day, but probably the 5k per day will decrease :(

Re: Fighting Mechanics: Let's discuss

How about injuries and stamina ?

Certain moves taking more stamina that regenerates with time/damage/blocks like other fighting games ?

If you can gain experience point to spend in the skill tree, maybe you have to balance how much you can train per day or risk getting injured (so you may have to buy food/medicine) or getting recovered by days passing.

Also I was kinda mad they removed the automatic move button.

Re: Update; Interview with Tak Hirai, lead Shenmue programme

Why are this things so hidden ??

The webpage was great content, but there's no way one could know from just looking at the kickstarter.

So from putting info together I think that the battle QTEs will not be "press this button" but actually "select the best Scroll/move for the situation at hand".

But it worries me that free battle will be scrapped :S

Re: Yu Suzuki - Reddit AMA Today 21:30 PST / 05.30 GMT

Well I backed a couple of these, it's pretty amateurish. The kickstarter video is pretty damn bad, the coolest update yet (the video with the programmer) isn't even on the kickstarter. They reached the goal on record time and barely awknoledge it, one update was for giving thanks to another guy (and give a shout about his game), there are not enough tiers, etc. They couldn't even put the time right ! like, come on.

Bloodborne had social media "achievements", dreamfall had cool video updates about the game, concept art, broken age wasn't even a videogame, but the guys did let's plays, documentaries that were awesome. I even backed a game made by pretty much 1 guy and the updates were better than this.

It's pretty bad.

I'm not saying anything about negativity, look at my posts about the kickstarter and how it's developing moneywise. Just that the guys that should be doing it the most approchable possible are not doing a good job about it. It's criticism to improve, not to destroy.

PS. the gratitude should be to Yu Suzuki, the guys that are actually running the kickstarter are getting paid to do a mediocre job.

Re: Yu Suzuki - Reddit AMA Today 21:30 PST / 05.30 GMT

I dont get it. When in another topic we discuss that game footage is not really good, eveyone keep saying that this video was made for 0$ and just for showing. Im ok with that. But do you think they have money to make full campaigin? It requires budget. Really big budget. Good marketing campaigin can cost 100k$+ because its really hard to promote kickstarter for the people who not interested in it, a lot of people never heard of Shenmue, and of course they dont wanna give money for the game for no reason.


Look at this:

But maybe from a marketing point of view ENG dub is better than jap dub, this is no yakuza, I think it'll sell better to eng users.

Re: Yu Suzuki - Reddit AMA Today 21:30 PST / 05.30 GMT

To be honest, marketwise I think it's better to have only eng dub.

As a fan, I prefer more content over voice acting.

To be critical, I like both eng and jap ryo voices, but the directing is so bad in eng that I kinda prefer jap so at least I don't know what I'm hearing. But nostalgia is nostalgia.

If the VO direction would not be in hands of japanese (or french) people, I would side with only english voice.

Re: 4gamer interview - character perspective system [spoiler

It's called "perspective system", so more than "controlling" other characters will be how they react to certain events that you can see from first person perspective (literal, not gameplay). For example you can see ryo doing his bullshit revenge act, then see xiuying sad about him, then the cat just wanting some milk. Like some "inside info" about other characters state of mind.

It's a really interesting idea.

Things I don't agree with MiTT3NZ:
- Saying from the first moment that the "dream game" should be 10 million would be a kickstarter harakiri, it's just too much for any game kickstarter.
- Simplified stretch goals don't seem like a good incentive, I think that people feel better when they think they're achieving things, I even think that closer stretches would be better.
- Suzuki did various interviews, but mostly for japanese media. But also sony talked about Shenmue in most post E3 recaps.

Re: Shenmue 3 - All stretch goals announced.....

I'm absolutely disappointed and shocked at the complete lack of regard for Shenmue's Chinese fans despite the fact the location of the game. :roll: Portugese but not Chinese?

I guess it's hard to get statistics from china, and the pirate market there doesn't make it easier.

I guess online was a really interesting approach to their market.

But I don't care about online Shenmue. Shenmue is videogame in it's great form, and to me, it means an amazing art.

Today is everything shoot this, or that. Blah blah or this sidequest, grind here, That's what I liked about Shenmue I better than II.

Great stories should be told how they need to be told. I don't know about Shenmue story, but what I know is that this series did so much for the medium that I can't start to speak.

Yu said he wanted this game that could be played by kids, he did a lot more than that.

I just want more of his ideas.

How in the world did you go from China to "shoot this, shoot that" and "Yu wanted to make this for kids?" :-k

Kinda 4 liters of beer, kinda I know, kinda I love shenmue.

We can fucking do tis.

To be honest I didnpt give e3 a shit after shenmue was announced, but there are good stuff.

I don't like ti, but a shenmue cellphone app to gain money while you are playing ? Don't know something like that.

We need this shit to happen, Even while I studied game design most of the teachers didn't know about Shenmue, they would actually show Shenmue in their ponit but didn't play it.

I would really like the mirrors replicas, just because they are cool as phuck. I actually bought a little collection of miniatures from a japanese museum because it had a little one.

I don't think I could fit somewhere a lucky hit stand. But also, it's easier to doubt about the quality of a mirror replica.

A shenmue themed usb would be nice, a metal case would be nice, a keychain (most of the kickstarters have this), the heavens lighter.

Re: Shenmue II too big ?

I think that SI feels more "real" specially since most of the people there have custom responses and more "not random" npcs. You could see that each store owner goes to X bar, get back drunk, your friends smoking at the park (or barfing, don't know). In SII feels like every person is there to guide you. Like being smaller made you want to talk to everybody to see their responses, while on SII is mostly asking a question.

Still Shenmue II has a great level of detail (for example when you can ask around about Xuixing), but a lot of that detail is easier to ignore. I think the new Shenmue will have to "maximize" the ammount of detail it can offer.

I like that the world is bigger, but from a budget perspective and how much do certain areas get used not so much.
