There was honesty in what I said; alimn is definitely the guiding light, in terms of any optimism in this place, regarding Shenmue III! He is the man!

^sorry for spamming this place having just popped back again, but i was serious too

i just wish it was contagious... i think loads of people in this forum - including me - could do with that enthusiasm and hope!

anyway, this topic is really annoying with the way everyone seems to hate Adam Doree so much, fo no reason whatsoever. He is a good journalist IMO and Kikizo have some spectacular exclusives when it comes to japan. and sega. remember that
give him a break.
and remember, ffs, he is one of us! a fan of Shenmue!

Nah, it ain't spamming. Talk as freely as you wish. :)

It's a shame so many have given up, that I agree with, but not everyone is as strong as the likes of alimn. Nor are they as patient. Heh. :P

^Thank you Henry, actually waiting even for more years can't prove
that we'll never see Shenmue III & the good news is that in this
industry pubs and devs never say never...

Many older SEGA titles like NiGHTS, REZ, Samba de Amigo, Space
Channel 5, Seaman, Sega Bass Fishing, The House Of The Dead and even
more are back so they should not have forget their 70 million dollar
Shenmue yet,...

In closing I must say that with lovely active places like Shenmue Dojo
& it's great members this franchise will never die!

>>>

In backing to this topic after a few months I should say that
even if Shenmue Online is officially canceled this can't be
the worst Shenmue news ever!

I mean they can use from Shenmue Online by adding it to their next
main Shenmue game as an online- extra mode, many today games have
more than one single player-offline-storyline based mode.
^In this way both MMO lovers and Shenmue fans can be happy.

So, we shouldn't say that they have wasted their time over nothing,
however we all loved to see Shenmue III(rest of the main storyline)
before any other Shenmue-related sequel or spin-off.

BTW here is a new news...

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/850/850710p1.html

^It can be a bad news and many may say shame on Satomi
or *%*%? Hajime!, but maybe this means that they are going to focus on
bringing back more old SEGA titles via re-makes and DLC games? instead
of wasting their budget for developing more new(wester-based) IPs?
(something like what CAPCOM usually likes, as an example Okami was a
masterpiece but it didn't sell well on the PS2...no they are bringing it back
on the Wii)

US, February 8, 2008 - As reported on gamesindustry.biz, SEGA Sammy is attempting to cut costs by laying off 400 employees after announcing operating losses of US $242.1 million for the full year. Previously, the company had forecast a profit of $9.3 million. The move will bring staff levels to roughly 3,000 employees.

Makes you wonder what Sega-Sammy's strategy to make a profit will be now; since it seems whoring Sonic out like a crackpot prossy isn't getting them anywhere...

And I seem to recall some jackass from Sega-Sammy saying a while back that they actually like their current business strategy? Hah!

uggh, ive been too busy to follow shenmue as of late, with multiple jobs and school, but I never have understood this communities undieing loyalty to this guy from Kiziko, the bottom line is he is in game media and knows what they choose to tell him, he was given PR blitz from the beginning that looked like it was too good to be true. The bottom line is Shenmue is going to come, some day, in some form. the story will be complete, but its going to come from Sega, its not going to be broken by some guy at a website, regardless of the pedestal he is placed on. I personally dont care what his *source* is, game websites act as the middleman for offical information, if anything from the original story were as definite as he led us to beleive it would be a frontpage story on more prominent websites. basically I am saying that its sad if you allow this guy to have that much control, he certainly isnt the one that is going to break the news on shenmue being alive or dead, this rests in segas hands, despite the repeated attempt of people trying to attach themselves to outcome of the 3rd game
