@nemuel yeah, I had the same reaction. haven't watched the video yet, but I'm cautiously optimistic that this game is at least OK.

Knowing Vinny, we know he wouldn't play this game until he finished Shenmue 2 and whatever spin-off novel it might have :)

Alright, lets see what this thing turned into.

Does it continue to still not be as good as Yakuza?

Man the footage I saw just a few months ago looked... ROUGH.

holiest of shit, what.

OK I gotta, but, aside from the unintentional weird, a lot of the praises about earnestness and 'being itself' and the direction and voice of unfettered yu suzuki- - is kind of what I think could (and has, see tim roger's review where he breaks it down in similar language) be applied to Death Stranding and Hideo Kojima's big middle finger to the modern gaming audience with what HE wanted to make. A lot of pretention and self awareness and direct intention of vision separates the two, but you could lift a lot of what they like about how weird and uncompromising this is to that game and what Kojima decided to make on purpose, wether they like it or not. For my time, I would rather play death stranding, I know that's not a popular opinion, but all said and done, I love it when a developer decides to stick to their guns, everyone be damned and if you like it, then you mostly like it for the weird, painstakingly deliberate up it's own ass weird, or...shenmue weird.

I forgot how I was exactly trying to tie these two together but maybe it will make sense to someone

I'm sort of glad this exists, but it's super weird in 2019.

This was an amazing Quick Look. I want to see more.

Vinny is a coward for not playing Shenmue 2 it’s the Endurance Run we’ve all been asking for. Be a man Caravellla and suffer through it!

Ryo must continue his destiny in another NEW SHENMUE ENDURANCE RUN. (Please???)

I would honestly double my subscription payment if it meant another Shenmue ER.

Abby should be the one that continues the Shenmue Endurance Run legacy, however Vinny should still have to sit there and suffer with her during them

Shenmue 2 Endurance Run with Abby at the controls. Please.

Or just a weekly stream I'll be fine with that too.

I appreciate that this game is still just as bad and weird and hilarious as regular old Shenmue. Which of course means it is anathema to modern game audiences who have already experienced Yakuza, a better game in every way. Shine on you crazy Shenmue fans, you gambled on the soul of this bad game series and won.

I hope it's because they plan on continuing the endurance run. I really hope that is the reason. =D

Happy to hear them enjoying it for what it is. I'll grab it once it comes to GOG in a couple of years.

I got two questions:

1 - Where's Vinny?

2 - Where's the Shenmue 2 Endurance Run?

I don't know why it never crossed my mind that the weirdness of Shenmue is something Abby would be into, but glad to hear she finds it intriguing.

... Which means another Shenmue ER must happen.

Giantbomb is notorious for not continuing with game series "sometimes" but no Vinny on this actually gives me hope that they will continue the Shenmue Endurance run,
