    We all now should be used to delays so support the game no matter how late if of course it gets decent enough reviews

    A real shame all the anti-consumer bullshit they pulled with this game's Kickstarter campaign and EGS exclusivity. It's never been my favorite series by any means, but I certainly would've considered a buy otherwise. Instead it'll be a hard pass for me.

    "they're in full bloom though, so the petals will start dropping soon" she says as the tree drops petals like there's no tomorrow
    I wish this game did well, but I think it will bomb really hard.
    the game is stiff and weird, the dub is cheap and the motions are just terrible, like a poorly choreographed kung fu movie

    they haven't shown many in game battles, and i think that's because they made the game to look and play like it was on the dreamcast, which is awful considering how much this kind of game evolved with sega's own yakuza series...

    worst part is that this might not even be the final shenmue chapter anymore after the greed monster bit yu suzuki.

    it became kind of a rule of mine to suspect every time sony overhypes a game
    no man's sky = crap
    dad of war = crap ( sorry but it is, they even hired PR to bash all negativity using fake twitter accounts and fake metacritic reviews )
    death stranding = crap
    and by the way no refunds!
    every single time they act really shady and dismissive after release, it's super scammy.

    I've never played the originals, but can appreciate their cult status.

    I can also see that this game will be a huge disappointment.

    Those hypes ain't from Sony.

    Also, welcome to my club, y'all! Shenmue games are bad. This won't be any different.

    You just have to wait for the next two games then. In this one he was only paid for a long villain monologue, no stunts included.

    I can't wait to play it although the graphics is still disappointing especially when compared to the yakuza series which also has a measly budget to make.

    See, no man's sky I get (though they've improved it a lot over time, the launch was awful), Death Stranding is a very hit or miss type of game so I can get that too, but God of War??? The game that got 10s from a ton of people and was labeled one of, if not the best game on the system by pretty much everyone who actually played it? Have you considered that you not liking a game doesn't make it crap?

    Well it's good to see it finally come closer to a release.
    But still I am sad of the platforms it's going to be on.

    America's heart, she's a beaut.
    This series is probably has my biggest regrets of not playing. My Dreamcast stopped reading discs days after I bought the first game in the early 2000's and with the PS2 and XboxOG I just never went back to finish them.
    I wonder if I'd still enjoy them after almost twenty years?

    Pretty sure it was part of the Humble Bundle monthly thing last month, I'll have to check if I got a key.

    I'm liking this post because I am thankful that the project is still alive, but despite that I'm completely conflicted on Shenmue 3. Again, I'm glad that the franchise isn't dead, but the franchise's campy-ness might not cut it in 2019. But without the campy-ness Shenmue really doesn't feel like Shenmue. I'm also not sure if the realism of Shenmue will cut it either, and not to say this as an criticism (this isn't a review), but a lot of the first game is just running through alleyways and talking to people. But maybe I'm wrong, maybe the Shenmue formula might pass for a 2019 release, I'm not sure. I'm really not sure about anything relating to this game.
