:-k
yu not a game player as a general? didn't know, not like i follow his life or anything.
there's a logic to it, and makes sense. (thanks whoever first pointed that out.)
the powers of observation, combined with an excellent imagination, dev team to hand, and able to direct them accordingly.
hell, he could make it up in his head what a 'video game' is...and in effect, is doing. 8)
...
seeing that just raised my expectations to ludicrous speed. (we've gone to plaid) :P
one warning was absolutely fair, was over zealous on conviction on a response to a subject.
the other one for 'spam' (aka: it was me posting that qualified) which is bogus due to personality clash. why don't who this concerns pull the other guy for destroying my subject, accusing it of SPAM?
oh, i get it now, not one of your cliques, and i watched you stand by and and let him trash it, and you did NOTHING but was complicit in your silence, and totally one sided and agree with it by inactions. (you have the temerity to pull me for spam, and yet, you let your lackey cliquey friends shit on my subjects? double-standards, real fuckin professional dude.)
at least the other staffer explained where i was wrong, and backed it up clearly in writ. :roll:

Not genally no, but he has played games before, infact while he claims in this interview, that he Isn't influenced by other games, and that sure maybe the case for Shenmue 2, and 3, but evidentle we have him being influenced by other games to thank for the creation of the entire Shenmue series altogether.

According to Yu, he use to play some RPGs in the late 80/early 90s, and something really bothered him in these game(He liked the overall gameplay of them, but one thing really annoyed him). Now because Yu is completely insane, the thing that bothered him so much, was the fact you had to point to a NPC to talk to it, and that lead him to want to make a RPG, which lead to the creation of Virtual Fighter RPG, which inturn morphed into what we ofcourse know as Shenmue, the greatest adventure series to date.

This baffles me, because a lot of morons hate on RPGs all the time, omg I hate those people(basically because they're not meant for brain dead cavemen, yet brain dead cavemen are always trying to change RPGs, to fit their mentality lv), and they say the craziest things, to bash RPGs. Know what I have never heard of before? Is any of these people complaining about how they don't like the fact you need to point at a NPC, to talk to it.


It blew my mind when I heard Yu say that, because he's saying we have to thank something that would never bother anyone else, for the creation of the Shenmue games. Um just WOW.

^^ fair point. (the last line)
i'm not fazed by it though, because if it counts to him what we think as a whole, he'll commit.
my observation on the truly talented:
i don't know how much space is in the human brain, but a consistent flaw is prevalent.
savant.
a word to describe an individual with an unparalleled skillset, but it goes to their heads.
usually, not very nice folks, celebrity culture, games now have that accolade as it's the most dominant form of entertainment.
...
i know devs on all sides of the prism, very few with talent and humble, the rest, absolute dicks you wouldn't want to meet irl. (never meet your heroes, you're in for a rude awakening and a sharp disappointment.)
ambiguous on it, the results are all i care about...
and if he delivers true to form, the ones calling him on his 'arrogance' will fall silent.
still, if he fucks up, the net will show it's ugly side and won't bar blows. (and rightly so. raise expectations, and not follow through? many long time houses was buried for failing to deliver. benefit of the doubt for yu, past results...and the story a WIP!) :mrgreen:
[edit]
i've never met yu irl, and i'm not speculating on his personality, merely a general observation on the world as a whole.
one warning was absolutely fair, was over zealous on conviction on a response to a subject.
the other one for 'spam' (aka: it was me posting that qualified) which is bogus due to personality clash. why don't who this concerns pull the other guy for destroying my subject, accusing it of SPAM?

I love everything about the interview. I love the new ideas that Yu wants to do with SIII, the "inner development" philosophy, that he likes challenges for himself.

Really hyped.

And yeah, remake the cave scene, I'll be happy whatever happens, but they can tone it down a little.

That's the thing that bothers me now: the quality of his team. And Yu & Hirai can't do anything.

Besides that, does anyone have noticed that the Character Perspective System concerns only the Baisha Village according the stretch goals ?

We were lead to believe that it was a Baisha village only thing(and even then, probally only for the infiltration quest segment+ a few minor segments), due to the way it was originally described, combined with the way It's placed in the Stretch goals. Nevermind his statement about why he wanted us to expand the last area of the game first.

However this last interview, almost literally states, It's a much bigger deal then that(like a most of the game kind of big deal), so maybe that's where they just decided to list it in the stretch goals, since he wanted people to expand the last area first anyway.

In any case, if it really is suppose to be such a big deal, it will most surely be one of the first things we notice in any gameplay footage they start releasing, during the development of the game.

I'm sure whatever we understand as the structure of the game according to stretch goals, Shenmue 3 will still be well paced and fun. I think this is why he had to spend time restructuring according to budget while making it interesting.

That image at the top of the interview aswell, wonder if that's the set in stone font for the game now, or just something otakumode have made? The kickstarter font was absolutely awful and true Shenmue font is the best, whilst it's not easy to read over their clothing, I quite like that chrome style :)

I think I'm beating a dead horse at this point, but what are you talking about? That IS where Shenmue 2 left off.

Lmfao, where do you think, in the bloody stone pit, in front of the 2 oversized carvings of the mirrors, with Shenhua, and Ryo facing each other.

2 did not end in Shenhua's house, so WTF are you talking about?

Very surprised to read that Yu Suzuki isn't into actually playing games!

He's got a precise vision of what he wants and where he wants to push gaming limits.

Couldn't be more excited about Shenmue 3 right now!


Yep, Yu has never been a real gamer in his whole life.

From my experience, I know that the best talents (especially in art) are those who are the most dispassionate people because they only focus on the most profound human yearnings and create directly with the existing tools whatever the others do or did, which are usually boring for them.

@Lan Di-sama : Like in Shenmue 2, I think we will face forest mazes again because of the storm damages. Maybe an early occasion to see the new Ryo's climbing abilities.

although true somewhat I guess there's a video on the internet of a japanese convention were yu suzuki schools the creator of tekken in both tekken and virtua fighter. incredible stuff
