SheMue: Overhyped and overated

Altered Beast: Yes, of course I know it isn\'t an RPG(but would have been much more playable if it has been one). it\'s basically an adventure game but lacks all the puzzle solving aspect of a good adventure game. The \'FREE\'(i hate that hypocrite term) battle is too few and far between. in fact, you don\'t even need to pratice much. Just button mashed your way through with the few simple moves and it\'s done before you can try anything else.

For all we know, the very word "ShenMue" could means BORING...

btw, I wonder how many copies of ShenMue has been sold so far? I knew it didn\'t do too well in Japan but I\'m wondering how many copies have they sell in the West.

Last time I heard, it took them 40 million(yen??) to develop this game. I wonder if they can even break even!

70 million dollars. They did not expect to make it back in the first installemtn. They are making 16 chapters, or probably about 10 different seperate games.

The games numbers so far are about -

350,000 Japan
450,000 America
Not out other places. I am betting it will sell 1 million easy though.

And, this game is pretty similar to VF, you can master moves, and use them in combat. This game is not about mashing your way through fights. It is about mastering the moves and performing in fights. You can get out the sissy way and mash trough fights, or you can use the moves and kick some butts. :)

MM, havent seen you in a good long while.
In so many ways we live to follow the sun
In so many ways we exalt and fail as one
In so many ways we want so bad to be done
In so many ways we show our pain in unison
