Thanks Himuro and FourWuDu.

This is a perfect example of how to NOT do an event like this. This is so screwed up. Are they kidding us? An English language AMA at a time when it's like the middle of the night in the western world? Really? This is a fucking joke. Someone just kick out those Awesome Japan people.

I'm not sure things are as dire as you think they are. The Kickstarter is still tracking better than comparable Kickstarters. For instance, it is ahead of Bloodstained on every single day of activity. Yesterday's addition of the $3,000 tier generated $54,000.

Please, let's not get ahead of ourselves. We didn't even know Shenmue III would happen a week ago.

I gotta say, besides the awesome news of Shenmue 3 happening, everything else from the kickstarter to this AMA has been rather amateurish and unprofessional. Kinda wish they hired a better team for the kickstarter.

They better not be getting paid!!! This could have been done better and for free by Shenmue fans!

You're comparing it to other Kickstarters, but what about the actual game advertising? This is awful. At this rate, the game would drop on PS4 and Steam and no one would know because they didn't bother to tell us the release date. This is terrible and inexcusable.

I remember one of my friends had this Hong Kong made VMU thingy, which let you transfer DC save stats to the computer via USB I think. He bought it from Lik Sang or Lan Kwei like 10 years back.

there are lots of DC game save files on the internet uploaded from a Dreamcast. I don't think it is a problem at all

Someone should start an ama called "I'm waiting for the Yu Suzuki AMA so AMA."

Right but is this a feature they really need to focus on when resources could be much better used elsewhere? If an HD Shenmue comes out, then thats a different story, but to go through the hassle of implementing it for DC files, I doubt its worth it for them.

To be honest why do you care about savegames ??

Just put a some money, and all the story items / photos. In shenmue IIx you started with pretty much everything, and it wasn't a problem even then.

There's not more than that. Do you care that much of starting with 10k or 1k in the wallet ?
