SEGAbits: "The official site for Shenmue City has opened up, more info is trickling down. The game, which was thought to be a sequel to Shenmue 2 has been revealed to be something else..."
"the game will take place in a parallel universe and you will start off where Shenmue 1 started" R.I.P Shenmue, you will always be my Number 1 game of all time
... I rather would have seen an announcement for HD remakes of Shenmue 1 and 2 for for XBLA and PSN (including the original voices), clearing the way for Shenmue 3 to be released after that. This 'Shenmue' news blows chunks.
it be that too, but I would take a 'Shenmue' social game, then have them make money off of it and get Shenmue 3 then have nothing at all. I hope that is what the funds goes toward, if not, I will be right off pissed.
the fuck is Shenmue City ?? is it a sequel or some kind of MMO ?? and when did they announce this ??? the heck is going on in here ? :\
Yu Suzuki has produced and directed some amazing games. Unfortunately he has made some duds as well like Shenmue 1 and 2. $70 Million wasted on these turds that could have gone into awesomeness :( It is a shame that he is wasting his time and energy on another crappy Shenmue game instead of making news Space Harriers, Virtua Cops, Hang ons, After Burners, etc or some new kick ass IP.
*revokes Fan Tastic's rights to be a gamer*
They absolutely were NOT turds, but that being said, when you take a good hard look at them they don't exactly scream justification of said $70 million either. Still great games, I wish he would just make a Shenmue 3.
Are you serious? I guess you're either the kind of person who likes a Wii or was introduced to gaming from Modern Warfare 2.. /s
I do like to game on the Wii, though my main console is the PS3 :D I hate Call of Duty games. You can play Shenmue City while I'll be playing Uncharted 3 :D I've been gaming since well before (first console 2600, though if you had any sense of history you'd know that by reading the rest of the post about Space Harrier, After Burner. You've missed on his great games.
I do know those games but calling Shenmue 1+2 a set of duds? Now I can't agree with that at all.
...and I agree with Fan Tastic - it was a smelly piece of turd. Although, I did finish it just to see if it got any better...but, it didn't. Ryo was more robotic than Robocop and his painful dialogue made me cringe everytime I heard him speak.
alright.. Just doesn't make sense that you know those games yet say "or was introduced to gaming from Modern Warfare 2" which isn't even in within a decade. ;) And yes the dialogue is horrible, the animations are stiff. The gameplay is even stiffer. How dare you insult Robocop ;) "I'd buy that for a dollar" wait when it comes to Shenmue I wouldn't/
Kick in the teeth of fans who have been waiting patiently for a proper sequel. I hate Yahoo.
not impressed. Just release Shenmue 1 and 2 for XBLA with HD visuals, subtitles and japanese speech but this time you gamers need to actually buy it!!! I brought shenmue 1 and 2 for the DC and shenmue 2 again for the xbox so I did my part, but its the people that only play PC games or only cared about the PS2, its your fault! I always buy the great games even when they are quite obscure..on any console/system btw people that were RPG/adventure gaming fans during 1999/2000 and didnt buy shenmue should look at themselves a bit
... unless Sega manages to fuck it up again, releasing it with only the horrible english dub or something. If they half-ass it, they can only blame themselfs if no-one buys it.
"we don't have money to make a game everybody wants, but we have money to make a game no one wants. And when this game inevitably tanks we will use it as an example not to make a real shenmue game."
Exactly & Bubbles.
another great series bites the dust... ironically, sonic color seems to be getting very high scores...
just give us Shenmue 3 already...
if sega knows we're waiting for the conclusion to the series why make this. They could of tried this afterewards
sega aways do that man, they aways give us the oposite of what we want... they are doing this to us since forever with sonic...
Why must I be teased..... What I really want is Shenmue 3 and a re-release of the first two on XBL and PSN! :-(
This title is probably gonna crash & burn. So long Shenmue :(
I want a new shenmue. That being said, i loved the first to when i was a kid. Got them for the Dreamcast and thought they were the greatest thing ever! Went back and played them like a year ago, and yea not so great, horribly slow; The voice acting is just horrific. And most of the dialog is off, With sentences like how you good today. Makes me wonder what the heck i was thinking when i was a kid! But i did go through and beat them both again... It was very boring!
Duke Nukem Forever is coming out so why can't this game come out?:/ anyway it will only be for Japan...right?
It's sega , they can't do their old franchises justice , or they f*ck it up with unnecessary spin off or reboots (shining force , shinobi , golden axe , sonic...) . Just look forward to their newest ips , that's the only thing they are nailed so far
