    Shenmue 1 & 2 HD (PS4) 2018

    Yeah, agreed. I've now completed Shenmue 2 and unlocked the platinum PSN trophy. Shenmue 2 improves over the original in lots of areas. Whilst I enjoyed the Japanese setting in the first game, this time you visit some really beautiful and colorful locations in Hong Kong, Kowloon (also in Hong Kong) and Guilin (China). There's more people to talk to. The structure of the streets is more complex, more maze-like. Thankfully they introduced a useful map system (you can buy maps) which helps a lot. Although it's still easy to get lost. There's a really cool feature; where some of the random people you talk to (instead of just describing where you need to go) will actually take you-lead you to where you need to go (so you just have to follow them). So nice of the people of Hong-Kong to take time out of their day to show Ryo around the towns XD Since you loose all your money near the start of the game, you have to work hard to earn money (gambling is definitely my favorite method). Again you have the playable SEGA arcade games, although the arcade shop is harder to find this time and it's less convenient to play the games beause you never have to visit the arcade shop to advance the story. Whilst there is the usual (often boring) going back and forth between places repetition like in the first game, the story and characters are more interesting. You get to meet people such as Joy, the beautiful and wise Xiuying, and the thief Ren who you play a large chunk of the second chapter alongside. There's some entertaining dialogue between Ryo and Ren. The climax to chapter 2 (in Kowloon) is tense as you climb each floor of the "Yellow Head Building" overcoming the various different challenges. Also, there's some nice music. The combat is much better. This time you have a health bar, learning moves is definitely easier than the first game (the only one that pissed me off was the "leaf catching" challenge. You keep your moves from the first games and there are plenty of new ones to learn and master. Whilst some fights are quite challenging, I never found them frustrating like in the first game. The QTE's however, can go fuck themselves. Quick time events are of course very much trial and error, however, there's an insane number of them in Shenmue 2 and it's always hard to predict when they're coming. The worst ones are when the "controller d-pad" appears on screen and you have repeat a sequence of buttons which the game shows you on screen, but you have literally a split second to do it or you have to try again. This may not sound terrible, but when you get these QTE's at the end of a fight; fuck it up and then you're forced to do the whole fight again and then attempt to beat the QTE again.....THEN RAGE ENSUES. Oh and don't get me started on those stupid fucking walk-the-plank QTE's. Not fun! Unlike Chapter 1&2, Chapter 3 in Guilin (when you meet Shenhua - who Ryu kept dreaming about in Shenmue 1) is literately a walk in the countryside with some QTE's and an insane amount of dialogue and optional dialogue. No fighting what-so-ever. Chapter 3 pretty much is "an interactive movie" and it goes on for at least 2 hours. It has nice visuals though and it tells a good story visually as Ryo and Shenhua make their way past mountains to Shenhua's home. There's some really nice music in chapter 3. Once you've beaten the game and know what you're doing it's much more straightforward and more enjoyable when you play again. I did a second playthrough of Shenmue 2 to get the remaining PSN trophies and blew through Chapter 1&2 resumably quickly. I also like that once you beat the game you can start a new game from your completed save file (unlike in Shenmue 1). Although, there's no new game-plus. It's much better that sometimes the clock will automatically skip a few hours to help advance the story more quickly so that you don't have to waste so much time. So yeah, I totally appreciate the cult following these games have, despite their many flaws. Bring on Shenmue 3!
  8. After TSR what type of Sonic game would you like to see next? A new classic game, new 3D modern game, re-release (port or emulation) or remake of a previous game, or something else?

    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      How about a long break. Sega constantly releasing something sonic doesnt give them time to breath or regroup

    2. I Love Sticks

      I Love Sticks

      A Spin-off focused on the larger cast. Maybe throw in the Avatar since it could work, if not focus on Tails, and perhaps add some RPG elements.

    3. Kiah


      A straight up party game à la Party Mode of Sonic and the Secret Rings. I would love to play tons of mini games with the extended cast. 

    4. Diogenes


      mania 2

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Mania 2. Spiritual sequel or direct sequel doesn't matter, the only important thing is that it's by the same teams.

      Fully expecting a movie tie in game.

    6. Wraith


      I'm craving 3D Sonic right now. Mania 2 would be nice too

    7. Yeow


      A sequel to Mania. either by the same team, a different larger team with identical design philosophies, or a combination of both.

      Primarily in 2D, but the dev team and Sega get bonus points from me if they do try making the series' first legitimate 3D Genesis Sonic game from what Mania established.

      Although in both cases, I personally wouldn't start asking for either of those until 2020/2021.

    8. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      A "Mania 2" but on one condition... Providing that much of the same team are involved as well as a few more trusted members of the community too and make sure that the game gets complete the first time as well (Mania was released half finished, Plus fixes most of the problems though).

      Crazy me wants to see a Sonic Squash game though.

    9. I Love Sticks

      I Love Sticks

      If there is a Mania 2 it needs playable Amy and Honey, some villains from the past as bosses (Scratch, Grounder, Breezie), and an upgraded art style, maybe hand drawn.

    10. Diogenes


      i'd also take an actually good 3d game but like hell is that happening so whatever

    11. TCB


      Hopes: A 3D Modern Sonic game done by Yakuza Studio is all I want 

      Reality: A movie tie in game done by sonic team

      Honest answer: a game I can actually enjoy playing for once. 

    12. tailsBOOM!


      Anything that is high quality

    13. Dee Dude

      Honestly, the Adventure duo is long overdue for remakes.


  10. Now that I'm done with Shenmue, I'm gonna go back and finish Spider-Man (which I've only played a tiny bit).

    I still haven't played Zelda BOTW even though I bought my copy about six months ago, lol. I do want to play it though :D

    I may as well trade-in God of War because I've barely played it and not particularly interested in playing it again.

    1. TCB


      I might end up trading in BOTW if I can. It's just not scratching that itch for me unlike the majority lol I'm weird. 

  11. Unlocked the Platinum trophy in Shenmue 2. 










  12. Wow, this is a pleasant suprise. Especially so soon. Good to see SEGA recognising it's success and the great work by the team behind Adventures. Can't blame SEGA for wanting to capitalise on it's success. Wonder if we'll get longer episodes this time (assuming it'll be episodic whatever it's about) and whether it'll be uploaded to youtube for free like with Adventures. Maybe it will be linked to an upcoming game in 2019 or 2020??? Exciting stuff! I was sick of classic being bad, like he was in Forces. However, he was brilliant in Mania & Mania Adventures and I've no problem with seeing more classic as long as it's done right. However, I'm not fussed if this time it's Modern Sonic.
  13. I've updated the SEGA Ages topic. Yes, the Switch release will indeed include the drop-dash. I'd love to play any classic Sonic game with the drop-dash.

    Sega Ages Collection (Switch)

    More games have been announced for the SEGA Ages collection: Out Run, Thunder Force, Colums II and Sonic 2. I actually got my first taste of Out Run by playing it in Shenmue 2 This version of Sonic 2 will also feature the drop-dash (and hopefully the Mega-Play version of Sonic 2 will be included). Translated from the Jp site: In addition; Sonic 1 SEGA Ages now has a release date of 20th September for Japan:
