That day, did you see the Shenmue Endurance Run?

The Shenmue Endurance Run Playlist

Well…I already covered Persona 4 and the Deadly Premonition Endurance Runs…I guess that means I have to watch Shenmue now.

This series features one highlight from each video in Giant Bomb’s Shenmue Endurance Run. While this series will cover many of the funny moments from Vinny, Alex, and Dan’s play through, it will also tackle the different aspects of Shenmue as a game and what Giant Bomb went through while playing this game.

Oh god, what have I done?

I really hope that they start Shenmue 2 this year. The hollow world and fighting system of the Yakuza series can go and get bent when Ryo takes the stage.

(So far I've been going through this Endurance Run pretty fast, to the point where I don't want to create too many threads in such a short amount of time. Plus Shenmue probably doesn't deserve this much attention. With that in mind, I think I'm just going to update this one blog post and post comments linking to the new videos. Anyways!)

Here's Part 2:

This game is so bad I can't even sit through all of these videos. HOW CAN ANYONE THINK THIS IS A GOOD GAME?!?!?!

I love how much this game's time-wasting broke Vinny. Also, that map from Part 2 might be my favorite part of the entire Endurance Run.

Thank you for doing these, @clagnaught. (Maybe. This is a terrible game.)

These are great. The back and forth between Vinny and Alex during the Fire... boy episode was one of the best things to ever grace this website.

Behold, the stunning conclusion to the Best of the Shenmue Endurance Run, which is totally not late by 10 months or anything!!

Thanks for watching! I think I am only going to upload the next series like this (whatever that may be) when all of the videos are done to avoid another lull like this. Anyways, Shenmue 1 was a mistake!
