Then I had a live chat with one of the guys, and it went really well. Oh damn, if it happens then WOW! It's gonna be crazy!


Great news! So you managed to talk yourself to Microsoft after all. When are you finally gonna meet Bill Gates himself? Keep us posted on the $50 mil donation!


It's not Microsoft. Don't worry, I'll keep you all posted! It'll be a glorious day if/when it happens.

Time will tell. :mrgreen:


And the award for cringiest Twitter account goes to


Shenmue500K actually retweeted his/her tweet!


Most likely one of the numerous fake accounts that somebody set up in 500K's name, unless it's the official @shen500k one.

Shenmue500K actually retweeted his/her tweet! And the tweet also got 3 likes so at least it's gaining traction. Now we just need to wait and see. I mean, he/she gets someone to donate $50M and I get someone to donate $50M (which is a very real possibility now) and it means they'll have over $100M! I don't know whether they would actually need all that though.

What they are doing is pretty pathetic. Just asking anyone to donate to a random project. And three likes isn't really traction.

Sorry to be a downer. But it's not going to happen. If it does I'll eat a paper plate.

Why would bill gates donate? What would he even get out of it?

Well, instead of ending world hunger or building schools for the poorest he will get the official title of Shenmue Legend. And when he does, all Shenmue fanboys around the globe can't help but endorse the new XBone X (even though there will be no Shenmue 3 on it).That alone should be worth more than $50M, right? Gates is all business man. He's got no time for world problems.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand the mindset of a Twitter account run by a moron spamming people with requests for 50 million dollar donations to something they couldn't care less about.

But it isn't a random project. This is Shenmue III, a very special project. As for you Jibby, you're confused. And at least it's better than not trying. On the off chance that it actually happens, then it will make a huge difference and both the gamers and the developers will benefit!

It's a random project TO THEM. They will get fuck all from donating 50mil. No one in their right mind would do it. You have to be a troll.

Ok, let me explain. They do donate to charity, correct? And what do they gain from donating to charity? Nothing, they do it so that they can help out the people in need and not for their own benefit. This is the same thing.

Going to lock this topic as it's pretty much redundant at this point.
