Shenmue 3 review

Nothing better captures the magic of Shenmue III than its save files. On one line, the current date and time; above it, the date and time this particular save will whisk you back to. Because that’s what Shenmue is: time travel. The opportunity to visit a very specific moment in history. In the case of Shenmue III, China in the spring of 1987. Of course,…

After 18 years, Shenmue 3 is finally a game you can play right now

It's only gone and come out, hasn't it? Four years after its controversial, record-breaking $6 million Kickstarter campaign, Shenmue 3 is finally a game you can pick up and play. Blimey, it's only been 18 years since the last one. Shenmue's had a rough road to release, full of publisher scandals and delay after delay after delay. But it's finally time to pick up where…

What you do when you’re not chasing your destiny in Shenmue 3

A lot of Shenmue happens in the spaces between the game. I remember my time in Yu Suziki's sprawling RPGs not as some grand unveiling of my destiny, but as a dude collecting capsule toys, getting a job as a forklift driver, and hanging out at the arcade. I lived a rich little life playing it, though because of it I horribly failed my forklift…

Feature: Throwback Thursday

Why are so many old games coming back? We asked developers why they chase nostalgia

Remember that thing you like from 10 years ago? It’s probably getting a sequel. Shenmue 3. Evil Genius 2. Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2. The calendar of upcoming games is packed with throwbacks that will revisit the worlds we left behind over a decade ago. Oddworld: Soulstorm is heading back to the strange homeland of Abe the skinny green freedom farter. Mechwarrior 5 is booting…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Feature: Technically, these are tortoises

You can race turtles in Shenmue 3 and, OK, yes, this is nice

Let’s get it out of the way: I have not played the Shenmues. For some this admission will immediately disqualify me from having a valid opinion on one of the most eagerly awaited (and expensive) Kickstarter throwbacks in history. I know how this will go. I will tell you I have played a bit, that the characters feel wooden, that the English voice acting is…

Shenmue 3 delayed again, back to November

The will-mue, won't-mue of Shenmue will continue for a while longer, as Shenmue III is delayed once again. Previously due on August 27th, the open-world brawl-o-RPG is now expected on November 19th. It's the usual reason: they want more time to finish and make it better. Almost three months might seem a fair while longer to wait but sheesh, it's been 18 years since Shenmue…

Shenmue III won’t be released in 2018, but you knew that already

You've been waiting 17 years for Shenmue III - what's one more year between friends? Sure, a delay until until 2019 makes the time between the wildly successful Kickstarter for Yu Suzuki's white whale and its eventual reality jump to four years, but I think we all knew this was inevitable.

Shenmue 3 Screens Offer Glimpse Of What’s To Come

For many a Shenmue fanatic, the fact that Shenmue 3 [official site] is still actually happening is enough to overwhelm. By the time the third series entry lands next December, 16 years will have passed since the conclusion of the last, thus it's had an inordinate amount of time to stew in the cauldron of cult status. Can it live up to the hype? Who…

Shenmue 3 Smashes Records, Finishes On Over $6 Million

Yu Suzuki On Board For Shenmue 3 Kickstarter

When Microsoft made the announcement that they'd be adopting some kind of Early Access process for the Xbone, I joked that one of the other major publishers would use their conference to announce a Kickstarter. And so.. Last night, while I was catching up on sleep after a frantic weekend, Sony invited Shenmue director Yu Suzuki onstage to announce that they would be funding and…
