You'd be better of treating it as an indie release rather than having unrealistic expectations. The technical achievements of the first two games resulted in what was, at the time, the most expensive game ever made. Shenmue III is being made on a shoestring budget by comparison.Love the trailer, hate the doll faces, hope there is an update there.
Shenmue 1 & 2 were technical masterpieces, so my expectations of looks and gameplay are very high.
Has the Dreamcast graphics feel to it which I'm fine with.Interestingly there's never any footage of Ryo's mouth moving, so I'm assuming they're still working on facial expressions etc. But yeah I'm certainly not expecting the ground breaking trend setting games that the first two were. My priority is playing out a continuation of the story and if it's five years behind as far as graphics are concerned that won't bother me in the slightest.
Ahh the famous resetting Dreamcast issue. Happened to mine all the time. If you open it up there's six pins on the left hand side that if you clean will fix it for about 6 months. But the most permanent fix I found was sticking broken off toothpicks in them so the pins didn't lose connection with the metal plating.I was playing through Shenmue 1 about this time last year. Got to the 3rd disk where I was working on the docks flat out and then the bloody Dreamcast reset. I don't think I saved it after a long stint so I couldn't be stuffed doing it all again. Will have to have another crack soon.
Another method I found is to put some solder on the pins to make them thicker.Ahh the famous resetting Dreamcast issue. Happened to mine all the time.

This place recommends bending the pins but I found the toothpicks worked well
Played them recently still hold ups the abilty to use modern control scheme will defantily helpSo glad I will have these games on a system that I don't have hidden in a box somewhere.
Two of my all-time favourites. Although to be honest I'm a bit worried about playing them now (because I doubt they have aged well).
I'm glad they didn't do a full a remaster with new graphics wouldn't feel right if they did imo.I was hoping when I saw this thread bumped it was a re-release on modern consoles. Not the HD remaster many were after but if they liked the originals so much they shouldn't really care. Yay.
To all of our backers, we are very sorry for the delay. After much discussion with our partners, Deep Silver, we have concluded that extending the release will allow us to deliver Shenmue III at its best. We promise to use this time to improve the quality of Shenmue III.
We cannot thank you enough for your enduring support.
