Designer says fans asking for sequel after 20 years is “very, very unique”.
Hopefully it doesn't disappoints.
Shemue 3 will get bad reviews for just being an Epic exclusive on PC.
I think it'll get a badd review mostly because it has a dated design, so people are gonna try to hold it to dumb standards. As long as it stays true to its roots I'll be happy, I want the story to be completed
@nitro Imagine making a game and having it judged by the standards of the time it released. The audacity.
Then ignore the PC reviews and stick to the PS4's?
After what they did to the people who crowdfunded, they deserve a shit review for going exclusive on EGS.
If by dumb standards you mean basic convenience then yes
Also a miracle with that Epic Games store back stab LOL
Cant wait for it to come in the mail
Shenmue 3 all possible by Epic games
embargo 2 days after release :D is it a good sign?
It's been clarified that it was UK only, not USA. It may have been due to shipping delays (we don't know for sure). USA embargo is day of launch (a common tactic, nothing out of the ordinary here). Do note that whether it gets good or bad reviews is irrelevant to a person's enjoyment. I love Death Stranding (36 hours in so far), and the bad reviews means nothing to me.
I still remember going to EB Games to pickup Shadowman 64 and the clerk telling me about this upcoming game that sounded too good to be true. He spoke of a large detailed gameworld that was teeming with life. NPCS that had lives and routines and dynamic day/night cycles and dynamic weather patterns. I'd never heard of a game like that and that game was Shenmue and on 9/9/99 I got a Dreamcast! I loved, absolutely loved the Dreamcast! It had an incredible library of games and blew away anything graphically at the time. Gameslike RE Code Veronica (most underrated RE game) Crazy Taxi, Echo the Dolphin, House of the Dead 2, MvC2(I wanna take you for a ride is seared into my brain) Soul Caliber 1&2, NFL2K & 2K1, Alone in the Dark and my most anticipated game.... Shenmue and when I finally got it I was blown away! I'm really excited for part 3 because I never thought it would happen.Also there was a Dreamcast horror game called Argatha that never released but it was another DC game that I wish I could've played!
And tomorrow Shenmue 3 is finally released! Man, I loved the Dreamcast too! In fact I just spent $170 last week to upgrade my Dreamcast! -GDEMU + 3D printed tray for the GDEMU -Pico PSU + 12v 5a power cable (can't use the traditional power cable that came with the system) -Noctura fan + new bracket to hold the fan Now I'll have every single DC game on a single micro SD card + it'll be whisper quiet and run cooler than it originally did! All that's left is the DCHDMI mod to make it perfect (actually, there may be a battery mod as well I should look up). Since you're a fan of light gun shooters, mentioning The House of the Dead 2, you may not have known one of the best arcade light gun shooters developed by SEGA and released at home exclusively for the Dreamcast called Confidential Mission. Basically its a cross between Virtua Cop and James Bond, and it has a very silly over the top vibe. SEGA never ported the game to consoles again. :( If you still have a CRT TV, look it up, and play it! Also HD Retrovision is about to release component cables for the Dreamcast likely next year! https://www.hdretrovision.c...
That's some incredible ingenuity! It's great to know that others enjoyed what was the short but amazing lifecycle of the Dreamcast. Thanks for the link too!
It is a miracle. Both games sold poorly, it has a devoted fan-base but most people still consider it a cult phenomenon... It had almost non financial support, and still somehow: it got made... Of course we are still having a bunch of people WHINING even before release, even before experiencing the game they are ready to jump on it because it is a Sony exclusive or an Epic exclusive or whatever... Haters are gonna hate, it is really sad living like that... But that's the way it is
It will be a special game and before the Gen Z folk cry for loot crates and 600,000 gun upgrades, this game is for a certain tastes.
Got mine in the morning mail today (I am in Scotland). I am about to load it onto the PS4 PRO.
