Judging by the demo on the Wii U, the game is horrible. I really never understood its appeal.Going to have to pull out the Wii U and download the demo for this to see if I personally enjoy it. (I didn't realise it had a demo),
Sounds like the demo is not a good slice of gameplay, then? Unfortunately that ship has somewhat sailed for me either way. My Wii U is failing... a deadly case of bad memory blocks.Judging by the demo on the Wii U, the game is horrible. I really never understood its appeal.
I heard that you are better off getting it if you are playing the game from the beginning though.
New $2m stretch goal
Yeah as long as there're dumb cunts that are paying more money then why not?
Yes I am serious mate. The game already got funded on three platforms and they kept on adding rubbish stretch goals. What makes anyone support this more? You've done your job already as a fan and you should've stopped right thereI'm not sure if you're serious, but of course people and fans of the game can do what they want, I'm all for that, but still. Don't they already have everything done as someone already mentioned? Like, how does it cost a quarter of a million for a remix when there are sites out there like OCReMix and it will be on MP3? Guess I'm the bitter gamer cunt innit, sorry!
What a joke. It looks like they are throwing random stuff. You don't see that many respectful Kickstarter projects actually. This one really makes me feel like they are taking fans and supporters for milking cows, and not even trying to hide it.New $2m stretch goal
Well the actual reason we decided to do a Kickstarter campaign was not for funding at all, it was more about gauging interest in The Wonderful 101. This is a game we’ve always wanted to revisit at some point in time, so we thought it would be a good opportunity to bring the fans together—to unite them—and gauge interest. And in essence, to release the game. So it wasn’t really about the amount of funding at all, it was about self-publishing, bringing fans together, and revisiting The Wonderful 101.
First off, the money is going towards the production of all the goods—I don’t know if you’ve seen all the tiers and their rewards, but those cost money to produce. The rest of the money is going towards the additional content that will be added to the game. All that costs money, and it takes time and work to port the game to the additional platforms. I want to clarify that we didn’t do the campaign to ‘get money’ or anything like that—that wasn’t the point of it. The main goal was to bring the fans together, gauge interest, and find a good way to revisit and release the game.
This Kickstarter campaign is an absolute shit show.
My game arrived on June 25th in Germany still haven't got it and if it miraculously shows up I have to pay import duties.
Platinum Games and their useless partner Yetee ignore all complaints coming from all non US and Japanese backers who I guess are around half the backers.
They shipped the games with a non traceable cheap option. It can't be traced after it entered the destination country WTF!!!!
They were hiding the fact that you have to pay duties. They added this later after many including myself already backed the game and not as part of the reward information.
Yetee does not respond to any complaint. 3 weeks no answer from them Platinum Games is dead silent on the issue as well.
Honestly I love platinum games but this is an absolut unacceptable shit show on PGs end. And they don't have the balls to make it up to their biggest fans who supported this fraud since I am 100% sure they game which came out earlier then the backer version would have been released without Kickstarter as well.
Personally I can't complain. I got my copy on June 4th (Germany as well).
The holographic cover looks really good and the game is (as it was on the Wii U) a blast.
You mean July 4th? Because I thought they just started shipping in June. I consider my copy lost right now . . . But the fact that Yetee and PG ignores all complaints is the worst thing ever. I mean PG is not a nobody . . . And their comment section on Kickstarter right now ist just a dumpster fire with complaints in regarding to shipping and hidden extra costs!
For all the bad buzz around the Shenmue III Kickstarter, I have to say that the shipment went very smoothly (albeit slowly) and they even sent me an additional paper-sleeve on my request free of charge, since one of the 2 copies I backed did get a little damaged during shipment.
That is to say, I would be so pissed and disappointed if the post did end up losing my kickstarter copy, too.
I hope they are not responding because they've been caught off-guard (usually it's safe to assume incompetence instead of malevolence), but they should 100% send you another copy without complaining.
If all comes to worse, make a fuss on twitter too, and write to some online magazines. They're good at making noise, so that'll come to your advantage.
