Really painted a picture for me there mate. Good read perfect 5/7

Shenmue I and II sales will have zero affect on III beaucse they are owned by different companies.

I and II are owned by Sega while III is being independently funded. Sega have nothing to do with III at all.

Sold II for about £50 many years ago
Sweet. Thanks. Ordered from here. Cancelled my Amazon preorder
Base £21.85 incoming...
I keep looking at this, I never got round to playing the first one properly and I can’t decide if to play it on the Dreamcast or get it on the PS4. Heat added
Are these remasters?

Play on the Dreamcast first always if at all possible. But... this is a superb price and I cannot wait to play them again. I would have paid much more(y)

why. its the same game, they havent really changed anything. just higher res and added a new control scheme if you want to use it. i think these will be better to play.

They probably will control better. Perhaps I’m biased as I still have my Dreamcast connected up and regularly play, but if you own one I’d say they are two games you really should be playing on there if possible. Way ahead of its time! There’s no doubt it’s easier and far cheaper to play this release though...
Only £7.45 on Xbox digital (Argentina)

A bit off topic certainly, but you could always have a look in some of those 'specialist' bars. Best of luck.

I see
does this mean shenmue 3 will be coming to the xbox one as well?
These two games aren't without their charms (I'm looking at you Joy!) but they really haven't aged that well.

Still, Shenmue 3 is coming so I suppose it doesn't really matter. Lan Di is gonna get his just desserts.
I used to love playing darts at the docks and spending a fortune on the capsule toys.

Oh, and it's worth noting that collections carry over from one game to the next in the DC versions, so it will probably be the case here as well.

He just asks the same question to everyone you meet? And the notebook tells you exactly what to do?
I loved these games. I'm buying this even though it's obvious both will have aged really badly...

I honestly have no idea why I couldn’t figure out wtf to do. It was damn frustrating, still annoys me 18 years later

Not sure if you checked a walkthough guide since but you'll probably kick yourself when you see how simple it was (well, you had to talk to a specific person (old lady) if it's the bit I'm thinking of)
If it's not a remaster then it will have the same atrocious voice acting?

It's what made it good! But it does have the Japanese voice too.

That is part of the charm. So will this not have any enhancements at all? Surely it'll be 1080p?

I can barely remember how it looked... presumably this was still in the days of dialup, im wondering why I didn’t check out a guide at the time, perhaps I was at my grandparents house or something or else couldn’t find who the heck to talk to. Ah well, life goes on

The fact you were looking for a "mission" shows you were playing the wrong game. Shenmue is about the experience.

Just want to apologise in case i sounded rude!
(Know i quote the wrong post but anyway)

Let's all go easy on the guy! We've all given up games for many reasons! I know I've dumped games for worse!

These games will have aged badly. And the English voice acting was the worst. I felt the japanese dialogue was good. I learnt how to give Japanese tourists directions in London from playing this... they would be speechless. Probably because my Japanese was so bad.

It's full of cliches and it's hammy but i loved them!
I want this for the switch! Well that and all Dreamcast games - a portable DC would be wicked!

Well, this collection is being made by SEGA.

Shenmue III is being produced and funded independently from SEGA, and so it's not really connected, and these 2 games coming out because SEGA felt that *now* is the best time to publicise and make money from them before Shenmue III comes out has no bearing on whether YS Net decides to raise the money to port the game to Xbox as well.

Thanks mate. I’m a big boy, expected some backlash

All good though, I’m delighted others enjoyed it - I felt I had missed out at the time as it was set to be a great game, and 12 or something year old me perhaps didn’t give it the patience it deserved. These days, there’s no excuse to miss a game for the same reasons with all of the resources available now :
its now £22.95 same price as BASE,so deal is expired.
Mine is on the way!!!! 😁😁😁
