@zevvion: Gamespot's 10 point scale was really a 100 point scale because of decimals while GB's is really a 10 point scale because of half stars. Depending on how you like to round it compared to 4.5, 5 stars is equivalent to the 9.5-10 range on the Gamespot scale.

And GB specifically went with stars because it leaves this wiggle room on how good a game is so there's less time agonising over what exact score something deserves. 5/5 stars doesn't meant perfect. It means a perfect star score, but not a perfect game.

There are no half stars, so it's a 5 point scale.

I still don't know what a "Shenmue" even is.

I didn't understand what Shenmue was until the end of the second game. Which is hilarious. Wish they had a title card that late.

Wait, literally no one has mentioned that Robert McNamara wasn't a Game Informer editor but in fact John F. Kennedy's Secretary of Defense?

Shame on Jeff for letting Dan believe he worked for GI.

Andy Mcnamara is EIC of Game Informer, and Dan was obviously ribbing on that since he worked there.

@dovah: Also:

-Being able to train with Fuku san in the dojo every morning

-Practicing moves in parking lot/park

-Training before bed

-How Ine-san is just a caretaker and not mother or grandmother of Ryo

-How movement controls are not as 'tank-y' as Vinny makes them out to be

Except the movement controls ARE beyond tanky. I just played 1 and 2 today, it's worse than tank controls. Tank controls do what you want them to do.

@nukleon: There is a climbing animation. You might be mistaking the staircases for ladders.

As someone who theoretically has a copy of Shenmue 3 coming at some point in the future and also as someone that has essentially no knowledge of its story whatsoever, this is more than great.

I'm actually curious, so sorry if this comes off as snarky cause that's not the tone I'm going for: if you never played any of the previous games, so you have no nostalgia, why not just play one of the Yakuza games? You get all the Japanese culture stuff, a MUCH better and more tonally consistent story, and some wonderfully over-the-top voice acting. Oh and WAY better gameplay/fighting.

"Better Fighting"? Yakuza is a brawler, and Shenmue is Virtua Fighter.
