Was looking at all the Shenmue related videos these past two weeks because of the Shenmue 3 announcement. Anyways, I looked at the old announcement video Sega release back in October of 2009 when they teased Ryo was going to be in Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing. Link to said video down below.
Anyways, after watching the video again after not having seen it since it was first posted, I looked at the comments. To my surprise, not only did I find comments I made about Shenmue 3 I posted 5 years ago but of one Jerry made.
So I guess we still had hope for Shenmue 3 way back when. As for Sonic and Sega All Stars Racing, I bought the game Day 1 for PS3 when it came out. Was a pretty fun game for what it was and sunk hours into it. I highly doubt that purchase helped in any ways with the announcement we got two weeks ago though. Still glad though that we are getting the game we wanted. Just hope Sega would get on re-releasing Shenmue 1 & 2 for PC and current gen consoles.
Also, I upped my pledge now to $510 just because I need those capsule toys. Also as a time stamp, the Kickstarter is at $3,778,458 at 6/30/2015 at 11:21 PM PST. Only 16 days left so I hope it will at least reach the 5 mill mark before it ends.
I was pretty shocked to see this announced. I'm so glad I spent all day watching E3 shit even though my apathy was maximum. I was blown the fuck away. Just got a ps4... can't wait to play some Shenmue 3 on it.
