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.

Nice. Both Shenmue's are classics.
