Shenmue 3: Hands-on with the Long-Awaited Sequel

Bernard Boo Jun 17, 2019

Shenmue 3 has been a long time coming, but does it deliver? Here are our hands-on impressions...

Shenmue III has me torn in two. I spent 15 minutes with the game at E3, and on one hand, I was delighted with much of what I played, mostly because the little things—like having odd conversations with random townsfolk, buying peculiar items and trinkets from shops and capsule vending machines, and engaging in quaint, meditative mini-games—reminded me of the brilliance of the original titles and Yu Suzuki’s genre-defining concept of somehow making mundane, everyday tasks deeply fun and engrossing.

At the same time, I came away from the demo a bit concerned about the game’s presentation and combat system. There’s something nice about the fact that someone could potentially play Shenmue I and II and then jump into Shenmue III and find the characters and environments immediately recognizable aesthetically.

Ryo Hazuki’s Original Voice Actor Is On Board For Shenmue III

The news keeps coming thick and fast for Shenmue III. This time around though, we’ve got a pretty substantial update to share. Corey Marshall, the original voice actor for series protagonist Ryo Hazuki, has had his involvement in Shenmue III confirmed via the game’s Kickstarter page.

We would all like to thank Corey-san for coming back, and especially for all the support he has given to Shenmue over the years.

Corey is as excited for Shenmue’s return as we all are, and to help out, he has magnanimously offered his voice for a special reward. Yes, that’s right–get a personal message from Ryo! Do not miss this opportunity to get a very special message from Ryo himself. Maybe one [of] those classic Ryo one-liners?

You’ve got to hand it to Ys Net – they’re doing everything they possibly can to reward long-time fans of the

30 Great Games That Defined Dreamcast

A 1999 demo promoting the ruinously expensive Shenmue (called “What’s Shenmue?”) featured an exclusive scene in which then company president Yukawa-san could be seen slumped at his desk, head in hands, surrounded by piles of unsold consoles (above). Deep down, Sega must have known the Dreamcast didn’t stand a chance even before they axed it two years later.

Even though the Sega Dreamcast enjoyed a relatively short lifespan (officially somewhere between its 1998 Japanese launch and late 2002 termination) and wasn’t supported at all by the most powerful publisher of the day (Electronic Arts) the well-loved machine still boasts an impressive library of titles.

Even extending this “best of” list, from the originally planned 10 to a whopping 30 games, has seen me leave out such gems as cult top-down shooter Ikaruga, well-regarded sports sim NHL 2K2, online deathmatch game Outtrigger, stylish BioWare-made shooter MDK2 and Street Fighter III: Double Impact (to

Big Video Game Movies That Never Were (Um… Yet)

As news of David O Russell’s departure from the director’s chair of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune sends shockwaves through the internet, now seems like as good a time as any to look back on a few of the epic video game adaptations that never were… or at least haven’t been yet. In the background, behind all the Uwe Boll adaptations and the notorious Bob Hoskins Super Mario Brothers movie, there have actually been a few projects which, at one time or another, threatened to be quite good.

Warning! One of the below has been completely made up for the sake of my own geekish amusement.

Halo: Combat Evolved

The game: X-box first person shooter (Fps) Halo: Combat Evolved has, since it’s release a decade ago, spawned a multi-billion dollar industry – at one time being described as the biggest “entertainment property” in the history of the world ever.
