Re: Shenmue HD in magazines

Maybe it was kindness, more likely it was laziness. It's a free magazine subscription that comes with a year paid into Gamestop's reward program. He may not have even cared about the magazine, he may have simply wanted the discounts and the magazine came with it. He'd likely just need to update his ...

Re: Shenmue HD in magazines

Thanks to the previous owner of my new home receiving Game Informer, I now receive Game Informer. The current issue was in my hands just a day or two after the announcement so clearly the re-release would have missed the print deadlines. Interestingly, there is an article on Shenmue III in the magaz...

Re: PS4 & X1 Physical Preorders?

Interesting note, Newegg is listing release date for the HD collection as 6/26/2018 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16879257154 Just checked that link and it appears that Newegg has entered a new placeholder release date of 12/31/18. Now we can begin the speculation as to wheth...

Re: Release Date Speculation

Withholding some release information is just good marketing strategy. When the game was announced, it was all over Twitter and all the big game news sites ran stories on it. They gave us a tiny bit of information and a very tiny amount of video. Later, they'll announce the release date and get more ...

Re: Shenmue HD's effect on the price of the originals

Earthbound is a good comparison case. Until recently, the only way to legitimately play the game was to buy a used SNES cart for around $200 (eBay). A few years ago it came out digitally on the Wii U (maybe 3DS as well, idk) and is also now included with the SNES classic. You can get them today for ...

Re: Only another $131K for next Kickstarter Goal

I wonder how relevant these stretch goals are at this point. They were written before anyone was sure the project would even hit its original $2m goal. Since then they've signed on Deep Silver as a publisher which supposedly injected cash and allowed them to rethink the scope of the project. Even if...

Re: What are you most looking forward to?

I'm most excited to get the two platinum trophies but that was mentioned in the OP. I'm excited to play them again on modern consoles. I've played through both games three times since around 2012 when I fell in love with the series. I'd planned to play them a fourth time this year in anticipation fo...

Re: Shenmue HD - Are the cutscenes in 4:3 (Non-Widescreen)?!

It seems that the cutscenes may be 4:3 unless this changes from the pre-release footage. Does anyone truly think this is a huge detriment? You could call it lazy but this will not affect my enjoyment of the game one iota. At the end of the day, what difference does it make? We'll still get the wider...

Re: PS4 & X1 Physical Preorders?

As of this morning, Amazon US was taking pre-orders for the first time. I was able to get my order in but I did not see a listing for the XB One version. I only have PS4 so I went ahead and ordered that but since it's only $30 I'll probably pick up the other version for collecting purposes. It's a s...

Re: How do you hope they handle the load screens?

I think they add value to the game and, of course, are an iconic part of the presentation. Leaving them up as long as they are in the original games is unnecessary though. I think a good way to handle them would be an on/off toggle in the game menu. If on, they appear where they normally would but t...

Re: Critical Reception (Reviews)

I'd guess it will get around 8/10. Reviewers will deduct points for any technical issues they may have with the release (low quality textures, if the cutscenes are 4:3 as rumored, etc) and for anything that hasn't 'aged' well (time spent waiting around, English dub, etc.). The story will shine throu...

Re: How many copies are you gonna buy?

I'm on the fence, will buy either one or two. I am a game collector and have all current versions of Shenmue I and II English releases. I also have a Japanese copy of Shenmue but not Shenmue II. I have a PS4 so I'll buy the physical PS4 version for sure. With the Amazon Prime pre-order discount, it ...

Re: worries about the physical edition of shenmue 3

I've not backed a KS project before this one but from the above information it seems unlikely that I will get my physical copy before the game is available in stores. I really hate digital so I'll probably be buying a second copy to play early!

Re: worries about the physical edition of shenmue 3

I've wondered how the rollout would be handled as well. Hopefully KS backers and Slacker Backers will have their rewards shipped first before anything is available in stores or on the digital stores. Even then, there is a concern that digital purchasers might get the game on the same day the physica...
