OMC79 commented on Sony Is Assisting With The Creation Of Shenmue...:

Nice to meet you @luke88.
@Tender_Cutlet Your passion for Shenmue is amazing. You even think now that I said there were no fans left. There is not even an O in @RegalSin.
Are fans still alive and well? Sure there are. Are they willing to even sell their mothers to see the sequel? You better believe it. Is it OK to give money so a multi-billionaire company won't risk its money? Common sense says no, but fan logic says: come and take my soul.

Crowdfunding is now a joke. Now is at the service of the poor multi-millionaires that are so attached to their money. Poor millionaires, let's give them our money so they won't have separation anxiety. It feels more like crowdblackmailing now.

@bitleman Agree. Those are not AAA, but have a similar hype and excuse for the crowdfunding. Isn't it amazing how naive are those who support those games even after their backing of companies, this one is just too much. It's freaking Sony, dam*it!
Sorry to rain on some people's parade but Shenmue II was a commercial flop. I love the game and I really wanted to see the conclusion, but the truth is that even after 3 years or so of the successful DC release, the XBOX release bombed. If Sony is involved, it is about the profit.

@Angelic_Lapras_King Vita: very likely. Dreamcast: wake up and smell the beginning of the new video game crash, you're just dreaming too much. They don't want their own money to be spent on the development of a game for current consoles, I don't think they want to spend their hard pledged money on older consoles. Making a DC version these days is like making an SF II version for the 2600 back in 1991. It was weak even for Shenmue II, it needed 4 giga discs while the XB just needed 1 DVD.

@Tender_Cutlet Sorry, hurting your feelings it's not what I wanted. As someone who works hard for the money, I look for my own welfare first before my fan needs. As much as I've also wanted the conclusion for so long, asking for money to the fans and then getting a big investor like Sony and still asking for money after that, makes me so angry at both Sony and Yu Suzuki that now I just stick to the cliffhanger of Shenmue II forever.

@Tender_Cutlet At this point, is obvious you are the kind of fan that would sell his soul to get more and don't respect himself as a consumer. Go sell your house to get this game done if you want. As you've just stated, now your making things easy not only for Sony, but Sega as well. If helping them is what you crave, go ahead. I hope you really, really get what you are pre-paying for, but you probably won't mind anyway.

OMC79 commented on Sony Is Assisting With The Creation Of Shenmue...:

@Tender_Cutlet If we are talking a AAA game here and the guy and the game have a rep, there are many rich, vastly rich investors that would be more than willing to back the game. I rather pay those $100 for a $40 game and the $60 of goods after it's released, at least that way I'd have the chance to read the review or even play it to chose whether to buy it or not. Instead of making things easier for Sony to save them some bucks, buy a PS4.

@link422007 At least with the Amiibo you are paying for a finished, already-invested-in product. A worst kind of exploitation was Capcom's DLC scam for SFxTekken. That was also paying ransom for something you already have.
@Tender_Cutlet Yes, for it will more honest. I wouldn't be paying someone who could have gone to a bank or any game company and get the investment with the help of his rep. If it would have been a regular joe who wanted to get his game done, he wouldn't be that lucky, he would really need any help for he'd be kicked of the bank by security personnel and the best he'd get in a game company is as a janitor. Businessmen don't go in the streets with a hat or a tin can so regular people throw money in it so their investors finally put the money in.
That's not the way Capitalism works, not even the way Communism or Socialism work, even in a cooperative, the employees get their equal share of the earnings, not the finished goods.

OMC79 commented on Sony Is Assisting With The Creation Of Shenmue...:

@Tender_Cutlet Sega threw those $100m at him, not the people and we didn't give him money so that Sega could threw that money. And if now he needs more money to get the control of the game from Sony, we will be paying ransom now for real. It gets worse by the minute.
I suppose in the next days we will see a Kickstarter from Microsoft to release the XB360 backwards compatibility because poor old MS need to know if there is enough interest from fans.

OMC79 commented on Sony Is Assisting With The Creation Of Shenmue...:

@Tender_Cutlet Sega relinquished the rights for Shenmue about a year ago. If people like IGA or Suzuki would have remained independent (in the case of Inafune that was not possible, though. Unless he sold his company but if he did, he'd have money so it would be te same), I'd be OK with the crowdfunding stuff, a little disappointed but it will be OK. The least they should do is return the money or something more than just sending you the "perks" they originally promised. Kickstarter needs some sort of regulation when things like this happen.

OMC79 commented on Sony Is Assisting With The Creation Of Shenmue...:

@sinalefa I'm afraid of that too, what would be the motivation for them to make a good game if they already paid for it? It might as well be like that Waterworld arcade game Milhouse plays in an episode of The Simpsons. The game just have to be finished so they won't give you any refunds.

OMC79 commented on Sony Is Assisting With The Creation Of Shenmue...:

@Tender_Cutlet I love it too but I don't feel it's OK for a company like Sony to ask for my money before it's even developed. It's like a ransom. Pay 3 million or we won't make games. I'm a consumer, not an investor and if I were I'd be expecting my share of profits, not just a copy of the product.

OMC79 commented on Sony Is Assisting With The Creation Of Shenmue...:

You know what could have been a better way to see if there is interest in the sequel? To release the first two as downloadable games and upon the sales figures, determine if the release for a sequel could be profitable enough. If Kickstarter would have existed in the 80s, Coca-Cola would have made one to re-release the Classic after the New Coke fiasco instead of taking the hit. The people are not speaking, they are making things for big companies easier.

This Kickstarter thing is getting out of hand. Now Sony "needs" it too? What's next, government Kickstarters to pass laws or to arrest someone? "If enough people wants a serial killer to get arrested, we need to reach the goal of 5 million US Dollars to know if there's interest in the people for the criminal to be stopped".
I hope the bubble bursts soon.
I'll wait for the cut scenes to be on YT. I'm so disappointed in Yu Suzuki now.

@Zombo OK, I admit my mistake there, I really didn't know you could get refunds but with such a clause is not something you should hope for every time, especially with things like this that reach the goals 3 days after they start. Just for the record, even with refunds, is not like an investment and you do buy nothing at the start, so my "correction" is still good; when you make an investment, you also take the risks (which is probably the main reason for which Capcom and Konami decided not to keep doing those games) and you fail if it fails.
@Darkthany If I'm "trolling" is because I don't like the idea to fund someone who does not legitimately need it. These guys could get to any bank, any game company or even the government and get the money loaned or get hired because they have a big reputation. But what about the average guy who would be kicked out by security personnel of a bank or a game company?, if any, they'll get a job as janitors in the game companies waiting for a chance.
I'd be OK if they'd release those games on their own, I would still criticize them for not being original, but It wouldn't make me so angry.

@James1993 Actually it is not in the Castlevania Universe unless Konami gives them the license. If they want a good excuse for using those $3.5 million from backers, getting the actual Castlevania license could be one. Greed and Fan Service can be a couple of b*tches, a match made in hell, especially for fans.
Castlevania Judgment was released 8 years ago on Wii, Dracula X SFC was released last year on the WiiU VC, it hasn't been that long.

OMC79 commented on Capcom Reveals E3 Plans and Mega Man Legacy Co...:

I think the choice for the 3DS over the Wii is good, this is not 1987 and playing this game in a TV (especially HD) is not that good anymore. Games that now are short and not so challenging as they used to be are more suitable for portables today. But if you still want them on the WiiU there's the VC, except for the 6th.

@EarthboundBenjy If I really wanted yet another, I might be backing this too, if only it wouldn't have a big investor like Deep Silver. I'd rather back a real indie with a really innovative idea who really needs my money. If Symphony of the Night would have been the only game like that or there would only be a couple of them (as it is the case of Banjo-Kazooie), I would also like to fund it. The thing is that I have too many of them already.

@Rasgar Everybody as in most people, as a figure of speech, not as in 100% of the population using the Internet. No offense but you take things a little too literary. I really hope the game won't disappoint you, you really, really believe in his job. I respect that but I still don't buy the "I was humbly trying to open a small studio" thing. Others have done it and don't go asking for money as if they would be "homeless nobodies". Neither I buy the story of "we need to know the fan response"; that can be done without asking for money. They might be committed to finish the game, but not to make it good, after all, you've already paid for it.

OMC79 commented on Video: Watch Koji Igarashi Hack And Slash His...:

@Rasgar I still don't get your idea of me thinking the Internet is a collective mind. I never said the whole Internet ever said that about Konami, and I never cited a group or made up group who considered IGA a victim.
Just because some people think it's OK to see the same thing again that doesn't mean there are no people who are tired of it and see this as a scam. That doesn't mean the whole Internet "thinks" is a scam nor that the game is really needed or that it is labor of pure love either.
It is not that a group called him a victim, but if someone goes out and say: "they fired me from my job, now I need your money to do what they didn't let the poor of me to do", how does that make that person look like? If playing the victim is not the right term, then I need a good dictionary. I know he didn't say it like that, but that's the general impression he gave, at least for me.

OMC79 commented on Video: Watch Koji Igarashi Hack And Slash His...:

@Rasgar It might not be using assets from previous games, but it is game we already have like 12 times. People did grew tired of Konami doing the same thing and it showed on the low sales of "Ecclesia" as compared to other Castlevania games. What did you mean by "Don't think of "the Internet" as a single entity." Could you elaborate on that? Because if it isn't with the internet, I don't see how Kickstarter gets its funding. Is there a magazine, adds on papers or a TV show? By the way, are you aware that he had a big private investor and probably was from the start?

OMC79 commented on Capcom Reveals E3 Plans and Mega Man Legacy Co...:

I'm glad to see that there is not as much "hate" for this announcement as I'd expected. Still, there is quite some, maybe if Capcom would put this in Kickstarter, they'll no longer be called lazy, uncreative and easy cash grabbers.
I do think it is lazy but at least is a download, It should have more games like the racing one and Megaman and Bass, it's just plain "remix" NES.
The good thing is that Capcom won't be risking their business to please some fans with some standard below average game that almost no one would care about with a multi-millionaire investment. Did I hear Megaman Legends 3? I think I also heard KOF XIII.

If IGA should still be at Konami doing this, everybody would be hoping for it to be canceled and everybody would be attacking Konami for releasing once more yet another Metroidvania, you'd be making puns and memes about their laziness and lack of originality and people would even be wishing for Konami go out of business. But this is IGA on Kickstarter, and suddenly he is the victim, he is passionate, he is stressed and we all should be giving him our money for a yet to exist product even though he needs our "backing" as much as he'd need a glass of water from us if he'd be the owner of a soft drink factory. Shame on all of you!
You back this guy when there are others out there with great and innovative ideas that probably won't see them materialize because they could never get the money not even from their relatives. When you back guys who struggle for a chance, you could be helping someone to start a great career he could have to abandon. When you back Jon Snows like this who have had all the chances in the world already and even have big investors, you are only turning yourselves into their cat maids.
@ekreig Backing is not an investment, you'll be getting a "thank you" e-mail and the download code (a physical copy at best) and that's it, you just pre-purchased something, no-refunds. When you invest, you get your share of all profit present and future, just like the guys at Deep Silver and Koch Media will.

OMC79 commented on ​Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Smashes P...:

@PanurgeJr Kicktarter is not an investment, you are simply pre-purchasing stuff. When you invest, you get a share of the profits, when you crowdfund, you get a thank you e-mail with a download code at best, while the funded gets all profits. It is not an investment. That's not how capitalism works, is how con artists and beggars make a living. However, I'm OK with it when it comes to fund a guy who is indeed penniless, has a great idea and all he has is a computer in the basement of his parent's house; guys like this do need a Kickstart, but people like Inafune or IGA need our money as much as Angela Merkel needs more control over Europe. What they need is a retirement home. Scamming mediocre has-beens!

OMC79 commented on ​Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Smashes P...:

@Alucard83 If you can't wait, there are dozens of Castlevania games, available for all kinds of consoles, mobiles and PC. You say you can't afford a PC Engine Duo for Dracula X or an NES or SNES for all of the games? If you own a Wii or WiiU, you can have them. And you know what's the best about them, they DO exist already. They are good and there are many.
Do we really need another? If Konami would release a new one, same metroidvania style, they'll be awfully criticized and even their stocks would go down, but if it is in Kickstarter, poor people give money to rich people so they can make yet another game and make them even more rich for doing almost nothing.
BTW: You should get some glasses, the SNES wouldn't had been capable of having even the first of the DS games. If you didn't like those, why do want this? Oh, I forgot, because it's crowdfunded.

If IGA and Inafune can do all that easy money, I'm gonna make a fundraiser to make a live action movie of this guy:

Apparently, people love knock-offs if they appear on Kickstarter. It doesn't have to be good, it doesn't have to be original, it doesn't even need to exist, it just needs to be crowdfunded to make money like a summer blockbuster.
Next, when Yoshinori Ono gets kicked out of Capcom, it's Movie Monster Fighter: The Massacre Resurrected. Gentlemen, start typing those credit card numbers on Kickstarter for the sake of mediocrity.

OMC79 commented on Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Will Not Be Ava...:

@KillScottKill Comcept might have been the no rep indie developer, but they didn't started the Kickstarter it was Inafune. He had a name that would have gotten any real investor and he did, he already had his own company: Inti Creates. He wasn't fired from Capcom when he started this, he just got his games canceled as Capcom denied the use of their IP for the abominations he was developing, Inti Creates served as an independent studio for Capcom since the Zero series, it was not even like Clover that was internal. It is the same case as with Bloodstained, maybe worse.

OMC79 commented on Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Will Not Be Ava...:

Capcom is fine, is not staying in the past and learns from mistakes, especially from others. If they'd stuck with the Mega Man games and releasing 5 fighting games a year and nothing else like the fans wanted, It would have joined SNK in its bankruptcy and road to oblivion adventure. No matter what some fans want or how much money those fans are willing to give away, there is not the same market for a game like this as there was in 1987, not even as it was in 2005.
@TrueWiiMaster What I meant is that it will never succeed Mega Man as a legend or in popularity, sorry for not elaborating on that. The term "spiritual successor" is awfully abused. Anything can be a "spiritual successor" these days.
A game like this should not even have a physical release for any platform, it should be a budget download.

OMC79

OMC79 commented on Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Will Not Be Ava...:

Something I just can't understand is why someone would spend the same amount of money for a 30-year-old concept of a game that looks like a 64-bit game instead of buying something like Splatoon or Smash Brothers? Is like if someone would had released the spiritual successor for Breakout keeping the same goals, the same length but using 16-bit graphics and sell it in disc format for the XBOX at the same price of a Halo or Fable game. It's just ridiculous.
@GearsOfWarU If you are a big MegaMan fan, stick with the originals. Even the Gunvolt games and other clones are more worthy.

OMC79 commented on Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Will Not Be Ava...:

@TrueWiiMaster That thing is no Mega Man successor, no matter who did it. Is like saying Taekwon V is Mazinger's successor, maybe he should sell the game in Korea, they love knock-offs.
@Kogorn733 Check the video he released (I think it was released yesterday) and you see why I said he didn't deliver, the game itself is not what he didn't deliver but something up to the expectations.

Who cares if we don't get the signature of Lazy No.1, er, I mean, Inafune? If you own a Nintendo console, you can get almost all of the original games of the real character. The backers are getting ripped-off times two. Shame on you, Inafune!
If I ever get this game it will be if, and only if, the game is good and find it used and cheap, although I might get a better run for my money with a better Mega Man clone or the originals I still don't have. I hope we all learn a lesson from this: never fund has-beens disguised as victims and indies.

I checked it regularly buy it made so angry every time they replaced the good shows (the ones that are now on the eShop) with those dumb Frederator shows and that Baman thing. Man, the joke that Baman and the conspiracies are, wore thin so quickly!
I'm so glad the good stuff that is on 3D is now available in the eShop on demand.
@dkxcalibur Like I said, the good shows are still on the eShop and Dinosaur Office is one of them, I'm not sure if all the episodes released so far are available, though.

OMC79 commented on Mighty No.9 Looks Rather Neat in This 60fps Tr...:

I'm not sure how much of a true Megaman fan I am even though I've played them since the NES (and still have those games), I even liked the racing one. The only ones I've never played are the PS2 3D ones.
I gotta say that I'm looking forward to play Dark Witch 2 more than this thing. For a clone, it sure was a nice done one, it was challenging and fun and didn't need fancy-yet-outdated 3D graphics too be good. One thing I liked about it is that the characters (that yell Kawaii all over a little too loud) are well designed and you can't always tell what their powers are or how they will attack you just by looking at the stage or the name of the character, so it was a nice surprise. The best of all is that I paid for a finished product at a very reasonable price. As a fan of the classic Mega Man and X, I enjoyed more this game than the ZX series. Inafune could have created new characters like they did in Dark Witch but he went the easy way and used robots, again. Wasn't he supposed to be the one who designed characters at Capcom? I'm not a designer either, but you can't deny that that is lame. He just swapped the buster for a dash, is like when Jack Kirby created the Challengers of the Unknown, they were simply the Fantastic Four without powers, with the blue uniforms swapped for pink ones (EDIT: sorry: it was the other way around, CotU was before FF, still it was the same).

@Pod Asking for crowdfunding was low for a person who had his own video game company and already had profits from other games, but if he does charge you extra for the new DLC even after you backed him good, he'll break the limits of lowliness.

OMC79 commented on Mighty No.9 Looks Rather Neat in This 60fps Tr...:

@BertoFlyingFox I really hope it won't disappoint you. Back when I was a kid, I bought some games just for the name of the characters. it was such an embarrassment when it turned out to be rubbish but since I've spent on it, I had to defend my "investment" from the criticism. The worst part is that I could have waited for the review and avoid the purchase, but in this case, the ones who fund it won't have that choice.
@TromboneGamer I would agree with you if the game would not only be more original, but also wouldn't had that obscene backing from crowdfunding. Yes, I don't know how to make a game, but then again, how come he had the time to make the Gunvolt games during the same "limited time"?

OMC79

OMC79 commented on Mighty No.9 Looks Rather Neat in This 60fps Tr...:

@TromboneGamer Limited development time? It has been almost three years since he started his virtual peddling and he got the money so quick and so much. Bigger, less funded, original, O-RI-GI-NAL games hadn't taken that long in development. It's just plain laziness. It reminds me of that failed Megaman Universe crap. Over-hyped, over-funded and over-priced as well. No thanks, I rather spend my money on the real MM games on VC or a good clone. IGA, take notes or be ready for similar criticism.
@Rhydas You are not his master, you are his b**ch, just like the morons who pre-purchased this so long ago. Fund the indies, not the has-beens.
@Nik-Davies I think the difference is that the WiiU version is that is less appealing to its user base since they have the original, X and Zero series in VC and the ZX will probably make their way soon (Let's not forget the EXE series if you like those too). PS4 users have not many options for a similar game... but wait, they already have Axiom Verge and other more competent indie (real indie) games of all kinds.

@TheRegginator Because they really don't need my money and I don't want to be their bi*ch so they can give me their freaking game. There are so much better options for the Nintendo systems, including the original Castlevanias with one major advantage: they already DO exist.
If these guys were average joes with a really good idea, I would back them for they legitimately would need help. IGA could have easily opened his own company and easily found real investors just because of his name (which happened) and Inafune already had his own company. Is like if Rupert Murdoch started crowdfunding so that the next Super Bowl be broadcasted.
