Waste of time.
Unprofessional.
Nothing to learn.
And I live in Europe.

On the plus side, under 3000 people were watching, so most backers missed this catastrophe.

Hmm, feeling a bit weird, that guy really didn't help, made the whole situation feel very embarrassing. They opened the new rewards, and I don't know what to make of them, yes they do sound like personal items from Yu Suzuki's possession, but it's just so random, that you could spend alot of money i'm not quite sure what to expect. I was expecting to go up from the $500 tier, to something really exciting, and without knowing what items will be sent...i'm not sure. They showed off one of the old timex watch, and if everyone picking a grab bag got one that would be amazing, and I would be at the $1k or $2k level feeling excited. However because they are unlikely to have 46 of them i'm not quite sure what to make of these tiers. I did pick the $2k tier originally, because I didn't want to miss out with them being limited I thought they would all get snapped up, but realistically based on my finance situation i've had to swap it to just the $1k. I'm still debating though. I would rather a guaranteed reward to throw my last pennies at!

Well, at least it looks like there was a little jump in donations.

That was such a bizarre experience. It was telling from the start with the audio issues that it wasn't going to go well. Though the pledges are at least going up, so something minutely good must have come from their stream!

They'll be able to watch it later on Youtube however... Maybe we should really just put Yu Suzuki's answers together and keep all the rest under wraps.

Yeah, that was dire, but it was also pretty exhausting watching everyone comment on the white guy. He definitely didn't do the project any favors.

$12M stretch goal - fire Awesome Japan. We'd hit it in a day.

So they decided to stream on what looked like a built in laptop camera. They also just decided to film in what looks like the corner of Yu's dining room. It seriously looked like a school project some kids where doing for a media project.
The interviewer was clearly stoned or suffers from some form of autism and shouldn't have been put in that position. They're lucky only 2,500 where watching because if this had a large audience the whole Kickstarter would just become a meme about that guy.
75% of the questions had already been answered yet the interviewer asked every question twice.
The translator seemed too get stuck on a word during every answer and just gave up translating and smiled at the camera as if the answer was finished.
They're looking at a way to make the psychical copy happen but in a way that will make fans happy? Put the disc in a box with a cover that says Shenmue 3!
They announced there would be pictures of the new rewards and then said that the photos weren't working and moved on.
The interviewer just kept saying the chat was going too fast and ended the stream.
The fact they said they would explain in detail the stretch goals past $5 million makes me worried they'll do this again. I can honestly see them learning from nothing here.

Christ almighty.
That made me gassy.
They should have taken a bunch of questions prior to the twitch via the kickstarter, gone over those...then take some random questions at the end.
Welp. Lets try and move on I suppose.

Dude it's going to be some hilarious Kotaku article and I won't be surprised at Polygon trying to kick up more hatred with this.
