I don't get it, I just don't know what the big fuss is about. I mean I backed shenmue 3 on kickstarter so that the game can be made, and so I can play it, well that is exactly what is happening. I have EGS, Steam, and PS4 so why is it so hard for people to adjust..

Some people are being so pity on kickstater's comment section saying they're going to pirate. smh

Why? It's a legitimate form of protest. And if they've legitimately paid and supported the game, is it really piracy?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I'm still going to buy it, the whole launcher war doesn't bother me.

Yes, it is really piracy if you download a different version of a game than the version you paid for.

Or is it also okay to download the Switch version of a game for free if we already paid for another version (f.e. a much cheaper PC, iOS or Android version of the same game)?

I did that for Doom. I didn't want Denuvo on my PC, so I bought the Switch version, torrented the PC version, and played both. I support the dev's work by buying the game and punishing the DRM by not giving them money through there. Now that there's no Denuvo in PC Doom, I have it for PC. I see no problem.

Some people doing that kind of stuff without "seeing a problem" still doesn't make it "a legitimate form of protest".

And what exactly is wrong with it? This people supported the game, without their money, it wouldn't exist. Now that the publisher has changed the deal, why shouldn't the customers react in kind?

I don’t care about exclusive game deals or Shenmue but it is shady as fuck to kickstart a game with the belief that it was a Steam game and then after people have paid millions to fund it, change it to a platform lots of people fucking hate. I hope it backfires big time on them to sway any other greedy devs from trying that BS in the future.

Or if you get the refund and then download illegal version.
