Title: How we all feeling about Shenmue 3?
Post by: ArbieG on March 21, 2018, 15:12:38 PM
I'm a backer of the Shenmue 3 campaign, just wondering whether people are excited or apprehensive to see the series come back, combined with the manner it's come back in?

I'm excited to see it come back, but pretty much expect the game to under deliverer, it's like Half Life 3, the waits been too long that the hype will push expectations far too high.

Just glad its being made after 16 odd years, didnt think id see the day (well i havent yet of course!) like you, im keeping my expectations down, though unlike some people moaning abount the early gfx, they dont bother me, any enhancements is a bonus on the originals, as long as the size of the game is around the first anything bigger is a bonus, personally thought Shenmue 2 was too big and it dragged on a bit at the end.

I enjoyed the first game when it came out but never finished it and I never played the sequel.

I probably would have tried the new game when it comes out, but honestly all the Save Shenmue nut-jobs ruined it for me. I can't begin to tell you how many people I have either muted or blocked on Twitter because they can't shut up about the game. I understand being passionate about a game series you love, but some of these people are just plain crazy. So yeah, eventually I got so pissed off at all of it that now I want nothing to do with the game.

Think I must be getting close to the "Get off my lawn" stage in life. ;D

I loved the first game, not so much the second, I am looking forward to what they deliver with this one.

Agreed, i was part of a few Shenmue communities as I really got into the series back on the DC, but some just got so infatuated with the series and outraged it wasn't being talked about. End of the day the series never got the exposure it needed to remain relevant, regardless of whether the game was any good or not.

Can't be expected to play every game ever made... that's just mental =P

It's coming out PC & PS4.

Can't say I'm hyped. Just leave the 2 almost perfect games as they are, don't try anything, reviving an old franchise or such, just revisit 1 & 2.

This might seriously backfire, as also times have changed, and I don't know if the world needs or wants another Shenmue.

Im pretty sure the world wants one, the Kickstarter would have even started without people keep pushing for one. As for times changing, they have but same could be said for Zelda or other old francises, theres no reason why not, indie gaming is bigger than ever, its not just the boring FPS games of last gen, plus its an ongoing story, revisiting 1&2 alone is pretty pointless as the story is incomplete.

Erm, from what I remember both Physical & Digital, I backed for a digital PS4 copy, actually had to go and buy a PS4 because of it... eugh, I can be so lame =D

Sorry if this self promotion is a little self indulgent, but on the back of this thread we went and made a quick 5 minute scripted & VO'd video about our thoughts about the return of Shenmue, never tried this kind of video feature before so would be great if people can let me know their thoughts!

I absolutely can't wait, I know the hype amongst fans is extremely high so it's hard to deliver on that but for me the game is SO much about the story, so even if parts of the gameplay are lacking I'm just so eager to find out how the story unfolds

I never played the originals  :-[ guessing I missed out on something special?

Will have to try play through them at some point, although I hear they are re-releasing the game in HD.

Deffinately excited, I've started playing the 1st one again, slightly annoying as there are flat spots where you can't skip time, but great game even so
