It's a little less than 2 hours at this point.

We know that because 8:54 is the point BogusMeatFactory freaked out to the point he couldn't type properly and just hit the keyboard repeatedly in uncontrollable joy :lol:

I was all set to snobbishly ignore all the new game news this E3 (I don't have any current-gen consoles beyond 3DS and am not normally a PC gamer)... BUT I AM OVERWHELMED WITH EXCITEMENT FOR THIS!

Damn straight. My wife donated $100 to it and said, "Happy Father's Day." BEST WIFE EVER! I am losing my fucking mind!

Bogus has a nice wifey.




Two hours and the total is over 760k.

Keep plugging away, you little bugger, I wanna see more of those stretch goals.

So I guess I should probably actually play 1 and 2 haha, I have been holding off until 3 was announced. Didn't want to start the games and never have a conclusion. I guess I'll add Shenmue 1 and 2 to my summer gaming challenge and make it a priority.

Looks like this'll finish funding in the first day.

Will this top Iga's record?

and it's coming to PC!

I have a hunch we will finally see 1 & 2 ported to PC before this is released.

Came back from dinner, pulled up IGN and could not believe what I was seeing, Shenmue III kickstarter?!?!? After going into a spasm on the floor, I promptly pulled out my card and pledged to the $120 level, gotta get one of those capsule toys!

I would be surprised if it didnt reach funding by the end of the day, it was at 800k when I refreshed the page.
