    Shenmue Official Dreamcast Trailer Restored

    Originally from "F355 Challenge", which is another game directed by Yu Suzuki :love: And it was quite astonishing at the time.

    Shenhua's house in S2 vs S3: a pictorial comparison

    That's beautiful. I agree I'd sure like to see more of this stuff on other locations in the 3 games.

    What level should my Kung Fu be at before heading to the last area?

    I also played/finished the game at "hard", the battles were not so difficult but the QTEs were almost impossible. I don't even want to think what it'd be like to catch the chickens at "nightmare" difficulty. I'd throw myself out of the window.

    Random Shenmue III Thoughts

    I had the black screen in Bailu Village. Only happened to me once in 50+ hours of gameplay. Could have been worse.

    Your Opinion About Music Integration

    That's one of the two arrangements for "The Place Where the Sun Sets", from the Shenmue OST double CD Although the entire track in S3 seems to have been evidently equalized, emphasizing the lower frequency range, sounding a little warmer and somehow more intimate, compared to the OST version...

    I also didn't want to offend her by calling her "Granny", but it felt prettttty weird.
