My download is done but just sitting at the title screen doing the connecting, reconnect, could not connect over and over. Figured this is exactly how this would play out no way they were going to meet actual server stress.

 

I figured as much, things smooth out over the next few days. That's why I figured I'd wait a few hours and grab the digital codes off Amazon for 20% off instead plus get some sexy stickers and a cardboard box.

I got into the character creator once, but couldn't get past that screen. Only a 5.2 gig file size so that's a positive. 

 

 

 

edit: so I got in for a few rounds so far and I'm pretty impressed with playing on an xbox controller, my main concern was the aiming and I think they really did a great job with it. Inventory is kind of a mess with equipping scopes and what not. Protip, to load your gun it's hold down x for a couple seconds, same to reload, not quite a fan of that but they are limited to the amount of buttons I suppose.

Are you serious? Shenmue 1 & 2 were popular Dreamcast games with a dedicated following that played the games long enough to find the 'bad endings' and unearth all kinds of weird easter eggs and shit.  I personally went through both games several times, even bought Shenume II  on both Dreamcast and Xbox. I'm not going to pretend they were the pinnacle of gaming, but they are still very enjoyable games with amazing moments.
 
And of course you never met anyone who played Snatcher, there were only like 5 copies released in the US. The Metal Gear references is the only reason any mainstream publication mentions it.


Shenmu 1 is a masterpiece. I never beat 2, but I remember it being good.

Snatcher is popular now for a lot of reasons.
1) Rarity
2) Kojima
3) It's HEAVILY influenced by Blade Runner

The dude who is claiming no one played through Shenmu 1&2 is an idiot.

The number of times Contrast has been on sale for the 360 kinda makes it a definite shoe in for GWG especially with that 80% off discount this week .

 

And I'm sure next week all our prayers will be answered with the greatest sale of all time!

If you actually read what I posted, idiot, was that some of the guys the camera caught (over)reacting to the Shenmue III Kickstarter campaign announcement during the Sony E3 2015 conference were not or didn't look old enough to have played Shenmue 1 or 2....ever. I never said no one played them at all.

I played a bit of the second on the Xbox since it was borrowed to me and decided to give it a try for kicks. Sadly, I didn't know nor care what was about. Though at that point, my disdain towards Japanese games was so big, a forklift simulator was not going to make me change my mind. Don't care if people consider them "masterpieces", the second one bored the shit out of me long enough back in late 2004 or early 2005 that I dropped it like a bad habit and never went back. No regrets.

But, I know I'm in the minority.

After having played the pc version for hours and hours and not getting a chicken dinner, my first game on Xbox it was me and another guy having a shootout. He got me. I was #2.

I want to cry.

I don’t know. You seem offended by someone stating that a lot of people who namedrop the Shenmue games never actually played them, and that they were boring. But it sounds like you played them and never finished them...maybe because they were not compelling to play and took forever to complete? That sounds like the opposite of what most would consider a masterpiece... As someone who played, finished and still owns a copy of Snatcher, I can tell you it’s mediocre.

Ha I've been #2 on PC a handful of times and have always choked doing something dumb. So far my best is a #10 but I did manage to get to a "drop crate" for the first time ever, got a Groza and Ghillie suit and died from the blue zone :(

Yah, once I got that complete a game achievement completion out of the way I'm flying. Day 2 I got the Versus tags from vote online in FM6 (lol yeah I usually played that solo believe it or not) and own the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2RS in FM7, (which was chump change). I actually spent more on the 2015 McLaren P1 GTR for completing tier 13 in the game, although they did give me a discount lol. Onto Day 3 before I hit the hay tonight/this morning lol.

Oh is that what it did? I thought it just added moving preview thumbnails to every video.

To each their own, never felt I had any issues controlling Lucky and found it far from being a bad game. Better than games like Yooka Laylee that’s for sure.

Agreed

I don't know if Shenmue 1 was "amazing" back in the day, but I do know that Shenmue II didn't grab me at all. Maybe one day when I'm really bored, I'll go back to it.
 

I'll also say this, Shenmue 3 has got to make a lot of changes from Shenmue I. I watched Giant Bomb's endurance run of it recently and *whew*. Let's just say games have come a long way since then. I know I'd have never made it through playing it, only the 'witty banter' got me through watching it. But hey, what else were they making anyway?

Is Okami a disc or a code in a case? I was going to get it at BB with a reward cert and GCU, but dummy me issued a $15 cert and the store pickup incentive discount makes the game 14.99 so it won't friggin work with it.

I ordered Okami and PUBG from BB, and set it up to have my Mom pick it up for me, and I didn't get the $1 pick up in person discount. Do I just suck? It seems like too much work to complain for just $2. At very least, I will not subject my Mom to try to negotiate for $2.

Done with the semester and 75% done with my Master's. Let the gaming begin!

 

Finished Strider, it's nice and short but fun while it lasts. Glad I didn't actually buy it since I don't see myself coming back to it, but it's very good.

 

Torn between Mass Effect 2 replay and Fallout 4. Now's the time for Fallout, but I'm always legitimately afraid of starting games like that because they are so easy to sink time into.

Just wanna let you know this did not go unnoticed. Finally bit - thanks.

I wanted to look into picking up the Victor Vran bundle that was on sale, but working open-close Sat-Sun-Mon wipes me the hell out, and deals wrapping at Tue 5 AM CST these days instead of noon has wrecked my last-minute impulse buying habits.
Oh well.

Day 12: LEAP FROG

 

You need to unlock twelve achievements, each with a higher ratio and in a different game than the last.

 

This is going to take some planning.

Yeah, if only older consoles still worked today so any generation could play any previous generations games.

There's literally a DVD that comes with the second game that plays the cinematics and explains the story of the first game. But, your disdain for forklifts was so strong you probably didn't notice.

Nah, offended by someone pretending to know what they're talking about.

I beat the first game multiple times and when the second one came out I wasn't as into gaming so I never finished it. The first one didn't take forever to beat, at least not for me when I was 11-12. You just made a shit ton of assumptions and put a lot of words in my mouth, congrats.

Would b easier if it could be the same game...so I have to play 12 different games and also have  a lookout on the TA Ratio...which can easily change when it's only about 0.01 difference we are talking about here...hmm. Best start with a 1.01 Achievement

So the discussion on the website is that it only needs to be a min of 2 game that you can alternate back and forth.  That makes it easier I guess. I have a lot of unplayed games I started for a Bean Dive so I should be ok on this challenge actually.
