Old topic.

Rath460 (talkcontribs)

Should we have an article on Shenmue 3? It received middling reviews and was a game that should stay in development hell.

The graphics, while nice, looks like a HD Sega Genesis game, lip-syncing is just as awful as POSTAL 2 (a game that came out in 2003, mind you) and it ended on a sudden cliffhanger sequel hook.

Edit 1: I've made a sandbox on Shenmue 3. I'd like you guys to review it for me to see if it's good enough to be publicly published.

Edit 2: Shenmue III now has its own page.

SpazJR61 (talkcontribs)

Good, but it need some adjustments though.

TyrantRex (talkcontribs)

I cleaned it up, removed the rants and unnecessary comparasions with other unrelated games. Now you can post it BUT put the Average Games category.

SpazJR61 (talkcontribs)

Some of the game comparison is not unnecessary because Sonic '06 had the similiar problem in artstyle and graphics.
Plus, they're just examples, not comparison.

Also, you forgot to remove the unreliable sources like IGN.

TyrantRex (talkcontribs)

Those are different types of games and the comparasions were overused.

And the IGN review for a change is honest.

DeciduousWater534 (talkcontribs)

Yeah I think it could have a page here.

It really seems like that most who gave the game a positive review, particularly those who gave the game a 10/10 or something similar, are overly-enthusiastic about it, being blinded by nostalgia to see the game's bad qualities.

TyrantRex (talkcontribs)

Exactly, reviewers not looking at the game with nostalgia goggles are significantly harsher towards it, mainly in that the game is too similar to the older Shenmues which themselves have aged poorly to say the least and don't really add much to modernize the formula.

Additionally Shenmue is supposed to be very story driven yet Shenmue 3 ends in another cliffhanger that doesn't solve anything. When it took 18 years to get another game out, putting yet another sequel bait assuming they'll get more sequels is very tone deaf on their part.

KataWolf (talkcontribs)

It's not necessarily a bad game, just one grounded a bit too much in nostalgia. Hell, I know a guy who is a massive Shenmue fan who had it as his most anticipated game since its announcement and despite loving the game he can still see its flaws (according to him its a 7/10 at best).

TyrantRex (talkcontribs)

"Grounded a bit too much in nostalgia" is the core of the problem. The things that made Shenmue innovative and impressive in 1999 are not impressive at all in 2019, Shenmue 3 intentionally being too close to the old games for the sake of nostalgia and repeating old archaic design choices is why it's being seen as outdated and reportedly not selling all that well.

I've mentioned before that this is a recurring problem with nostalgia driven games.

SpazJR61 (talkcontribs)

I knew it dude.
Literally, Shenmue franchise should be cancelled.
Also, Sega was already wasted tons of money to the two Shenmue games.
Speaking of Sega and nostalgia, that's another topic.

TyrantRex (talkcontribs)

The reason Sega never greenlit Shenmue 3 is because the first two games costed a crapton of money and both sold poorly, leaving Sega with bad losses when they were already in serious losses from console flops. Remember, Shenmue 3 only came out because Sega let Yu Suzuki take the IP and the game had to be crowdfunded. I doubt Shenmue 4 will ever happen especially with Shenmue 3 also not selling very well, the HD collection apparently also flopped.

I don't think a publisher would fund Shenmue 4 looking at the track record the franchise has had, all the more reason why leaving the game in yet another cliffhanger very tone deaf and narrow minded.

SpazJR61 (talkcontribs)

Shenmue 3 is literally Duke Nukem Forever of the Japanese games.

TyrantRex (talkcontribs)

When Sega has Yakuza they don't really need Shenmue either.

Hello.

I am sorry for posting that offending message. I posted it when I was upset over something at TF&HW and it was exaggerated. Please, let me talk to you on Discord about it since the text turns red when I try to send something to you.

Actually, we need a page about Blizzard.
Considering they're started to destroying their reputation since Activision bought them out.

KataWolf (talkcontribs)

The game itself certainly seems glitchy and rushed. I would say what truly deserves an article is the whole shitshow with custom-made content. In a nutshell, any custom content made with the game's editor will belong completely to Blizzard.

Paprika (talkcontribs)

I believe it absolutely deserves a page. As for a page on Blizzard themselves, I'm not sure about that yet.

XxxRazorbackxxx (talkcontribs)

If Blizzard deserves a page, add a bad quality where StarCraft Remastered is incompatible with many StarCraft mods.

SpazJR61 (talkcontribs)

This is a nitpick rather than a reason.

So, is the page good enough to be publicly published?

DeciduousWater534 (talkcontribs)

Looks good to me. When you move it out of your sandbox I'll make some adjustments to it.

Rath460 (talkcontribs)

Thanks. I did it.

Rath460 (talkcontribs)

Hi everyone, I've made a sandbox on Google Stadia. I'd like you guys to review it for me to see if it's good enough to be publicly published.

https://crappygames.miraheze.org/wiki/User:Rath460/sandbox

Edit 1: It's official: I'm having it publicly published thanks to you guys' help and due to the console being critically unsuccessful.

Edit 2: Google Stadia now has its own page.

KongoBongo25 (talkcontribs)

You should add something about the fact that Google has burner accounts to defend the Stadia.

Rath460 (talkcontribs)

What's a burner account?

Paprika (talkcontribs)

A fake account made by someone to do something they wouldn't do on their regular account, like a regular user making a second account for vandalism purposes.

Kion the Lion (talkcontribs)

You should also add 2 more details on it: 1) that Google Stadia did not launch with a lot of features that were advertised. 2) that even though you need to pay $130 for the required hardware and an additional $10 a month for its services, you still need to pay $60 for access to the games

Paprika (talkcontribs)

Looks pretty good but could maybe use one more pointer or so. This thing is cheaper than consoles and it shows.

Did you make the discord server?

Caulipower (talkcontribs)

I don't know who made the Discord server, I am trying to get in but would not let me, because the invitation expired.

Rath460 (talkcontribs)
Caulipower (talkcontribs)

But my invite is invalid? Is there a Perminant link? (a link that lasts forever)

Rath460 (talkcontribs)

The link I sent is permanent. There's a way to bypass your problem

Caulipower (talkcontribs)

How?
