As of yesterday on KICKSTARTER, Ys Net launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring Shenmue 3 back to the fans that have been dying for this game. It has been 14 years since the last game hit the shelves for Dreamcast. In my opinion this is what makes Kickstarter so awesome, to be able to bring cult classic games back to the market. There is a market for these games contrary to the gaming industry thinking, like they know what we want all the time lol. Back to the Kickstarter, If you are not familiar with Kickstarter, it is basically a crowd sourcing website for ideas. Projects have a time frame and reward tier based on the donation. If the project is successful your donation is taken out of your account, if not then nothing is taken. Once you back a project, you receive updates on that project, mainly just for the backers. I personally have been using Kickstarter to back all kinds of projects. Here’s where you can donate to Ys net project. So far they have met their goal of 2 million dollars, but they do have stretch goals.
Ultimately, this game will be coming out now for what platforms remains to be seen. Right now they just mention PC and PS4, but I would love to play it on Xbox One. In my opinion, I always thought Xbox was similar to Dreamcast. More info is available on their Kickstarter site……………..I can’t wait for this game!
So, we have the Eric Dean Seaton interview up for your listening pleasure. We ran into Mr. Seaton while at C2E2, also BigL and I talk a little about his book, “The Legend of Mantamaji” and how we felt about it. Check out that show here. We are thinking about doing a spin off of OA dealing with sports. When we say sports we don’t mean we talk about sports in American. No, we talk about those and other cultures sports (cricket, 9-man, Rugby, etc.). Along with anime sports ( e.g Kuroko’s No Basket, Ace of the Diamond, Baby Steps, and so on), We are really stoked about this addition to the family. So, keep an eye out for these projects and more of our C2E2 and other shows.
For Otaku By Otaku
It has been a week now since C2E2, so the goings on of the show has sinked in. Have our overall thoughts of the show since day 2 & 3 changed. Check it out on the recap show
Also watch out for some of the interviews we gathered from C2E2, the first of them is with Eric Dean Seaton the writer of The Legend of Mantamaji
Here’s the second show on our impressions of day three,our recap of C2E2 is coming up.
Along with interviews with some of the writers and artists from the show. Also Mykey Fresh has joined Twitch (OA_MykeyFr3sh), and watch some of BigL’s antics on Twitch here
Mykey Fresh here and this is the first of our C2E2 coverage, we have a few interviews coming out. On a personal note, I really enjoyed C2E2. We met some really awesome people, the city of Chicago was great to a couple of Jersey guys. I definitely have to make a trip out there to really get to know the city.
As of today we here at OA have posted a new show, it is a Solo Act featuring BigL this month. BigL talks about two games he has been playing, check it out
Starting today we have began recording new episodes together, due to the work being done here we had to record Roundtables and Solo Acts. But we are back together, these shows will be posted before C2E2. Now speaking of C2E2, I for one can’t wait to get over there. If anyone else is going hit us up

Well it has been some time since I last posted, but there has been a lot going on since the last post. First of all we have posted two shows since the last entry, another Roundtable discussion involving the last Naruto movie.
The second show was last month’s Solo Act about the whole VR craze and Mykey Fresh’s thoughts on whether it will last longer than the last VR stint.
We also have been working on a new logo. We have one done, but we are working with an artist on another one hopefully it will be done by NYCC this year.
So, C2E2 will be going on at the end of this month and we will be there, still getting prepared for the trip. Definitely looking forward to it will be our first time in Chicago, more posts will be made in this month and future months leading into Comic-con season……..can’t wait!!!
