      It was my biggest frustration in my video game history, not seen more shenmue, now I have contributed to make it happen, one of my 3 favorite games, thanks Yu Suzuki.

    11. Contemplar on

      Here's hoping the ragdoll mechanics will make it in!

    12. Ari Tomi Stenberg on

      I think they mentioned Paypal on next funding progress whatever that be.

    13. James Closs on

      Woo! I figure with PayPal backers we'll be able to get up to at LEAST the Rag Doll reactions.

      Yeah, power outage. Seems like the haters summoned all of their negative energy to unleash a psychic Electro Magnetic Pulse wave to take out the power stations. Thanks Kotaku.

      It went off on me twitter strem

    24. Long Tran on

      someone forgot to pay the electric bills......that's all.

    25. Ari Tomi Stenberg on

      And ofcourse they just cant do good stream. first it was black shirt guy and audio problems. Now Audio was echo effect and feed was cutoff during a show. Bad pr i hope pledges still comes in. Was it weather or they they really cant manage their wires???

    26. Clevis Willrich on

      I really want to hit at least one more stretch goal. I am hopeful that we can break $6.5m in these last two hours!

    27. Robert Hillman on

      We done well we past $6 millon i would liked to past all the gols but $6 millon is good its the higst any game gon on Kickstarter so thats good i think

    28. Clevis Willrich on

      3 weeks ago I was worried that we wouldn't get past $4m. Then the next time I checked, we had broken $5m. Last night as I was increasing my pledge, I was extremely skeptical of us breaking the $5.6m Kickstarter record, if we even got past $5.5m. As I see our current standing, which continues to rise as I type, I feel so defeated in the happiest way.
