I don't know whether I should even bother celebrating, sigh.

You shouldn't be able to pull out!!! It's just stupid! Kickstarter should have a 24 hour or maybe even 48 hour cooling off period where you can reduce your pledge or back out completely, but after that, it should be made clear that you are locked in. I know it would be unpopular, but it just opens up too much potential for trolls or people backing out otherwise.

Set12 mentioned that someone's Kickstarter got ruined by troll pledges. This shouldn't be able to happen and Kickstarter should do something about it! (e.g. My above suggestion).

And another $3k tier has gone...honestly feels like someone might be doing it on purpose and will give them up just before we hit 3.5mil again. Hope i'm wrong.

Don't get too excited. More than likely the 10k is from a troll. So you still might get to live off of bread and water! =D>

You can always change your pledge, it takes literally 5 seconds to change. Get yourself in there :)

Whether the donations are legit or not, it is easy to see that we are still making progress. Shenmue 3 up to #14 most funded KS ever.

... for the rewards :cry:
Maybe just pledge something like EverybodyLovesRen suggests? You can always change it when you see a better reward. Right now, every single donation from every Shenmue fan really counts. :)

Btw, the KS is being trolled. We just lost another $10k. Fuckers :evil:

If there is anyone out there TRULY considering the 10k pledges, watch the ks like a hawk. It's likely the people currently in there are trolls that are just trying to screw with us as we approach a stretch goal.
