Shenmue 3 kickstarter backers received news that they will not receive their refunds if they changed which version of the game they wanted. People who wanted the PC version of the game were unhappy about Shenmue 3being an Epic Game Exclusive. The Epic Game store has many controversies among the gaming community for its poor interface, failing to launch the game, and security issues regarding purchases.
Backers who were frustrated could apply for a refund if they no longer wanted to receive the PC copy of the game. However, if they switched from the PC copy to the PlayStation 4 copy of the game, they will receive no refund according to Ys Net.
This has angered fans as the instructions for refunds weren’t clear until this last weekend. The full refund option wasn’t available until the weekend as well so backers were forced to wait or change their Epic Copy to a PS4 copy.
If backers wanted, they could have waited a year after the game’s release on the Epic Game store to receive a Steam Code for Shenmue 3. However, Ys Net is unable to guarantee backers will receive the code due to negotiations with Valve. There is also a possibility there will be no Steam version depending on negotiations.
Shenmue 3 comes out on November 19th for the Epic Game Store and PlayStation 4.
Dead or Alive is famous for three things: sexy ninjas fighters, 3D fighting gameplay, and having a ton of costumes. Dead or Alive 5 had many costumes packs. To buy the entire collection, players would have to spend more than $1000! Koei Tecmo seems to continue this business practice with Dead or Alive 6as their Season Pass 1 will be $92.99.
What could be included to warrant such a price? Well so far, Mai Shiranui from the King of Fighters series who is well known for her assets. Also one new DLC character. The rest are all costumes; specifically 62. It’s pretty absurd for players to purchase DLC priced higher than the game but this is a common business practice for Koei Tecmo. Many of their game franchises such as Dynasty Warriors feature massive costume packs over microtransactions.
While DLC is completely optional, it’s pretty crazy to pay such a huge price for the 1st season pass; especially since it’s more expensive than the base game.
Confirmed by Nintendo, Bowsette is impossible to create. According to Nintendo’s New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe website, only Toadette can use the website. Not sure why Luigi is mentioned in the item description when the true desire for the item was Bowser.
At least we will always have fanart, animations, Tumblr, and more.
