Shenmue 3 is making a comeback

As of yesterday on KICKSTARTER, Ys Net launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring Shenmue 3 back to the fans that have been dying for this game.  It has been 14 years since the last game hit the shelves for Dreamcast.  In my opinion this is what makes Kickstarter so awesome, to be able to bring cult classic games back to the market.  There is a market for these games contrary to the gaming industry thinking, like they know what we want all the time lol.  Back to the Kickstarter, If you are not familiar with Kickstarter, it is basically a crowd sourcing website for ideas.  Projects have a time frame and reward tier based on the donation.  If the project is successful your donation is taken out of your account, if not then nothing is taken.  Once you back a project, you receive updates on that project, mainly just for the backers.  I personally have been using Kickstarter to back all kinds of projects. Here’s where you can donate to Ys net project.  So far they have met their goal of 2 million dollars, but they do have stretch goals.

Ultimately, this game will be coming out now for what platforms remains to be seen.  Right now they just mention PC and PS4, but I would love to play it on Xbox One.  In my opinion, I always thought Xbox was similar to Dreamcast.  More info is available on their Kickstarter site……………..I can’t wait for this game!

Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy XV


Thoughts on the No Show of KH3+FFXV


So it has been confirmed that SquareEnix will not be showing any new information on the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy XV games.   Honestly I think this is a waste.  Although they are making us watch the trailer for KH2.5 to get info on KH3, which is a great marketing ploy.  Are we really interested in buying and playing a game we played back in ’07?  I still play my original, but that was expected. What I would have been looking forward to was info on the Final Fantasy XV; currently we here at OA are playing FFXIV.  I love this game, (for me I’m not a fan of MMORPGs).  However, the more I play this game the more I’m interested in FFXV. So, in regards to Square I’m not looking forward to there E3 show as a whole.  What are your thoughts on this or any other E3 developments?
