Dope. .....

Nah, just going in quite a bit of debt for it, honestly. But it's fucking worth it.

I don't know whether I should even bother celebrating, sigh.

You shouldn't be able to pull out!!! It's just stupid! Kickstarter should have a 24 hour or maybe even 48 hour cooling off period where you can reduce your pledge or back out completely, but after that, it should be made clear that you are locked in. I know it would be unpopular, but it just opens up too much potential for trolls or people backing out otherwise.

Set12 mentioned that someone's Kickstarter got ruined by troll pledges. This shouldn't be able to happen and Kickstarter should do something about it! (e.g. My above suggestion).


The problem is that you can cancel any transaction made on your credit card during the last 4 or so weeks. And even after the credit card company has charged your bank account, you can disallow their debit retrospectively, so there's not a lot Kickstarter could do. If someone doesn't wanna pay, they're not gonna pay.


That's a good point actually. Ugh.

I can't believe all 3 of the people who bought dinner with Yu Suzuki belong to this place. This forum is definitely the best Shenmue Forum out there!

I feel guilty now, Peter...

I feel like I need to explain who I am now.. I'm not a casual Shenmue fan. My brother and I are 35. We are identical twins and we help lead a school just outside Guilin in Yangshou where we teach poor kids English in helping them get scholarships to achieve better education.

This was inspired by Shenmue. My Avatar is of me laying on a raft on the Lijiang river just outside Guilin.

I've been there from the beginning like most of you. This will be a great experience in my life that I will treasure until I die.

A lot of the pictures are of my brother and I.

Here is me with the kids.

Ken Sugimori isn't here, as far as I know. He's the artist for Pokemon. He posted on his Twitter that he got it.

I can do nothing but salute you guys who are putting up $10K for this. Yu Suzuki should replace Ryo and Shenhua and Lan Di's faces with all of your faces.

Also, wdrpgwd is clearly a fantstic human being. He deserves his face as Ryo regardless of his donation. And if that's him in that picture, I would honestly be totally totally cool with it.

I cant help hide my disappointment, but i am glad Yu will be meeing proper Shenmue fans. I guess it just wasnt meant to be for me. Well done all of you! Of course, PM me if anyone feels like they cant make it or whatever. But enjoy when you all go.

I still habe hope YS.net will get back to my request to open up some more dinner options. I dont see the problem with printing some more copies of the Shen scripts and adding an extra seat at the dinner table. The 10k is there if they really want it, but i am not giving all that money just as a donation.

I wish I could swing $10,000 to my most treasured franchise, I really, really do, but I just don't have it. :cry:

So much respect for all of you showing so much love for our beloved franchise by pledging or trying to pledge these huge amounts, it can't be easy financially, but you're really helping make the game the game it should be.

Much :heart:
