    I think they've done a great job of making it look the same as how I remember 1 and 2, but still modern.

    As for the Epic store exclusivity, couldn't care less, least it's on PC at all. I find it hilarious people crying over which launcher to launch what will be the same game either way.

    Before I begin, I have no intent on playing Shenmue. Tried the old ones and just couldn't get into it. And now the main event:

    Wow.
    WOW.

    Just..... what the in the actual fuck were they thinking? That's absolutely DISGUSTING!

    First they refuse to make the game for years.
    THEN they say that YOU have to fund the game if you want it.
    And THEN they say "Nah thanks steam, where we said it was going. It's now going to the most hated online store."

    Someone's getting off to this shit. I'm stunned. I'm fucking stunned! I feel genuinely sorry for the people who paid to have this game made only to get bait and switched. And it wouldn't surprise me if each and every one of those people who are pissed off refund the game, then pirate the ever living FUCK out of it.

    Keep pulling this shit, and people aren't going to give a damn if your company is going to go over due to rampant piracy, because the higher ups are sowing this themselves just to line their own pockets with cash!

    I would be just as fucking pissed off if the same thing happened with a Skies of Arcadia remake or sequel. infact, I'm starting to hope this never occurs, so my favorite doesn't get the Epic shitsmear on it's face.

    Fuck off Epic, you greedy CUNTS!

    Looks like backers that chose a PC physical copy will get a case with an EGS digital code inside:

    Not sure who's the game maid, but you sure you can pay to have her?

    Yeah, it happens and I wish it wouldn't but if Will Smith is floating around, let me get $200M+ to life a whole lot of shit.

    ??Yes??

    That's one way to take a huge dump on your backers.

    God damn it.

    Personally, I don't care where PC games are and aren't available, it doesn't make a single difference to me. But clearly I'm in the minority. This move just killed Shenmue. It probably wasn't gonna sell a whole lot to begin with and now it definitely won't. There will not be a Shenmue 4 because of this, at least one without another crowdfunding campaign.

    Regardless, trailer was actually pretty good for once, but as always those faces need work it's downright embarrassing.

    It would have still been messed up, but they could have at least let the backers get their Steam keys.

    Yes; historically, the smart lie about finances (+-).
    Expect Shenmue V on the PSV(5)s'/XB1SCs' lifespan.

    For a game thats gonna have hours and hours of dialog and cutscenes with lots of close up shots on the faces, they need to look better and be animated better.

    Maybe Epic will back them again, but people aren't going to pay for another crowdfunding campaign for this series again, when they been burned already. At least not anytime soon and not as long as it is an Epic exclusive.
