    Shenmue Dojo Interviews: Esra Krabbe

    Hello, thanks for listening as always. You've summed things up perfectly in terms of the content and it does raise some difficult points. My concern on a personal level is that YS wants to start again and make a revolutionary game with Shenmue 4 but we all know the budget is likely to be...

    [RELEASED] Shenmue 3 Kiwami Overhaul

    I'll download this later and have a play around with it. Definitely appreciate the work and like someone said above the music changes could be worth teaming up on. The fighting camera looks particularly interesting in comparison to the standard one. What I will say, being a little presumptious...

    Shenmue Dojo Show - Episode 4: Those Burning Questions!

    Glad you enjoyed it. James does a cracking job with the videos. With, presumably, two games left there is so much to cram in and I wonder how they will choose what goes in. I maintain that Shenmue III's systems aren't far off at all so if they really nail the story in the 4th and 5th games we...

    Really nice work, it's actually something James and I were discussing for a Podcast episode down the line. Keep it up

    How confident of you in your singing?

    I'm horrendous, there's a reason I play Bass!

    Shenmue IV Will Happen - Here's Why!

    This was before I spoke to Cedric and it was relatively non-descriptive in what they were doing. so I can only assume, after Cedric's interview, that they were working on the Shenmue 4 pitch. However I have always (as have others) begged the question of how the hell are they keeping the...

    Shenmue IV Will Happen - Here's Why!

    Unless anything has changed from when I spoke to Ryan last year, Yu Suzuki had a team continuing working at YSNET and on payroll.

    Shenmue IV Will Happen - Here's Why!

    So then by moving the scale a 7 isn't considered/interpreted by people as a solid game anymore? Or have I missed what you're getting at?

    Shenmue IV Will Happen - Here's Why!

    Exactly and that in turn stifles developers being creative by conforming to the tried and tested AAA model. I really enjoyed Ghost of Tsushima but at it's core, barring some nice little things like the wind being your waypoint, it was largely what we have had before. I really wish these big...

    Shenmue IV Will Happen - Here's Why!

    7/10 is considered rubbish these days. Back when I was a kid 7/10 was considered a solid game with some flaws.

    Random Shenmue IV Thoughts.

    Cedric is a legend.
