Shenmue I, II & III [PC, PS4, XBone]

Post by Medicine Man » Tue Aug 21, 2018 3:16 pm

I see Shenmue 3 has a release date. August 27th 2019...



The HD remasters are also out now and are by all accounts pretty decent...



Performance wise that is, the game part of them is still pish.

Shenmue is a terrible series. You have all been warned.

It's one I just never understood. I can appreciate the relatively simple story of revenge without world-altering consequences, but the actual gameplay was terrible. I've never known such a dull game to receive so much hype.

Why? Just curious, was thinking of giving them a bash.

You should probably just play Yazuka instead, Those games are everything Shenmue tried to be and more. Plus, you know, they are actually fun to play.

Shenmue was probably a necessary step to get where we are today. Its just not a step I'd be in a hurry to return to.

I wouldn't recommend it, they haven't aged well and I say that as someone who's replayed them both near enough every year since they were released. I just love the world it's set in.

It's amusingly appropriate that a video called "Shenmue 3 Gameplay Trailer" has approximately 4 seconds worth of footage where the player could potentially be controlling the main character, and everything else is blatantly just cutscene.

Still looks weird to me, faces barely emote and the lead character/characters' faces look like those off a china doll.

Shenmue III delayed until November 19th...


Hello Everyone,


Today, Yu Suzuki & Deep Silver would like to give a message concerning the release date.


Shenmue III will now release on 19th November 2019.


[before] August 27, 2019

[new] November 19, 2019


Whilst almost ready, the game simply needs a little more refinement before being truly finished.


We feel that the extra time we have will help us deliver the true Shenmue experience players around the world deserve!


We thank you for your patience and understanding,


Yu Suzuki & Deep Silver
