Tonight it's Shenmue II

Tonight it's Shenmue II

Even though there's been quite a controversy on Shenmue III's Kickstarter for a few weeks, we couldn't help but want to livestream Shenmue II on Xbox 360 thanks to backward compatibility. Tonight at 9:45 GMT+2 we'll go back in time to have a better look at the future, which is basically the perfect definition of going back to the future.

One game I've never played. Though the original is one of my all time favourites.

Great idea, guys!!!

I saw this a few days ago, but didn't thought it was relevant to talk about it, but now it's the perfect occasion!

I still have both 1&2 for the DC, but no DC anymore :D
I like the Japanese dub much more than the English one for Shenmue 2, sooo many terrible voices in English, especially the kids...

Ha I'm in the same boat - just that I had my dream cast but it wouldn't come on anymore : ( ... had to trash it. The guys in Chinatown couldn't even fix it lol.

Got the xbox version as well, but the game really hasn't aged well. Tried re-playing it a few years back and it's so clunky, ugly and suffers from the most horrendous voice acting :P

Yeah a HD remaster of Shenmue would make a lot more sense than any other that has been released so far. Though I really doubt it will ever happen.

Sadly, I have 2 broken DC now so no ShenMue anytime soon. One chipped (to play my JP imports) which resets all the time when heated up (PSU probably) and 1 unchipped which doesn't recognize discs anymore... :-(

Maybe swapping the PSU will do the trick but chances are slim...

I guess I'm lucky it this case. Still have my launch DC working with some games including Shenmue 1 and 2. I plan to replay both very soon :)

Game with the best atmosphere ever.

Really wish there'd be more games like Shenmue. I hope they'll do great with the 3rd one. Though they could ease up on the quicktime events.

It will be as usual at http://www.gamersyde.com/livestream_en.html, and also on our twitch channel Gamersyde. I will announce when it starts in the shoutbox.

Nice. Both Shenmue's are classics.

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (24 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (27 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (9 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (16 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (16 Hours ago)
