New Member Introductions

Hi.

I was part of the Dojo 20 years ago and now that I'm about to start my first playthrough of Shenmue 3 I thought I'd sign up to the new forum.
Awesome! Welcome to the Dojo :) really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Shenmue 3! I absolutely love it, especially after multiple playthroughs, it seems to get better!

Welcome! By chance had you ever used your nickname in other site like old assembler forums or Resident Evil 123 (classic) modding? Its familiar to me.

Agreed! Make sure you spend a lot of time exploring and visiting Shenhua on an evening, too @Se7eN ! ;)
 
Thanks for the welcome.

I'm only an hour in to Shenmue 3 but so far so good. I'm not a fan of the UI and menus but it's good to be back in the world.
So far, so good... So close and still so far ;)

Happy to hear that just UI/HUD bothers you a bit, that means you're a Real Shenmue Fan 🔥👩‍🚒 unlike... others 😁

I think there's a mod for it, Im not sure because always jump blind into it with the classic camera mod only. The truth is that UI has bothered me since Shenmue 2 map were I always put destination marks by accident.
@Seaman I did but not where you mentioned.
Hmmm. Its familiar even in the use of caps. I used iirc emuler and wasabi as other aliases, in case it rings a bell for you. I'll await the no never heard of it. Anyways, its nice to have more crew on board!
 
Hello everyone, Shotaro Kaneda here, I was originally on the Ryo’s Place forums Andy set up under my names Shenmue4You/Shenmue4Yu, then as that moved to become Shenmue Dojo and Andy moving off and IwaoHazuki taking the reigns before I think he went off to the military, I was on each iteration, so was around for a long time then took a bit of a break, but popped by to see these how things are going now on this new version of the forums, hope everyone is well!

Welcome (back) hope all is well.
 
Hi everyone! Been an occasional Dojo lurker over the years (even signed up in 2020 for reasons I can't remember) but recently started an attempt at a 100% complete Shenmue I (HD) playthrough so I've become wanting to get involved in a likeminded community. Currently reliving memories of putting that first disc in during December 2000 and still finding everything an utterly transportive experience.

Welcome back dude, I made a thread a few years back trying to get some OGs on the new forum, you were on the list ha I guess you can finally be crossed off!
 
Hi guys, I'm new to the forum but I've been a fan of Shenmue for some time now. My favorite parts of the series are the walks/jogs with Shenhua near the end of Shenmue II. I remember waiting for so long to figure out who the chick was they kept showing me in dreams & on the box art...to find out that some others found those portions to be boring & is the point where they dropped the game is baffling to meo_O

A bit about me: Gamer since the 90's, I don't think I'm quite as old as the broader Shenmue community, but I'm not a Zoomer either. I'm still 100% physical on my games (not a hater if you aren't, we'll just have to agree to disagree. Steam removed 550 gifted + shared games from my account and won't answer my support tickets). I'd like to think that I have a pretty nice game room, though i'm not a "collector." I only buy games I intend to play. JRPGs first and foremost, followed by most anything on the N64. My top 5 games in order are Final Fantasy VIII, Majora's Mask, Ocarina of Time, Final Fantasy IX, Harvest Moon: Back to Nature.

You might be surprised to not see Shenmue in there. I find the series fascinating, backed the Kickstarter, and played I & II well before that, but due to the drought between II --> III, my interest waned. There just isn't enough of it. If there were 10 of them I'd definitely have them all. I like simulation games, the amount of player choice available in the Shenmue series & the focus on dialogue and story. The slow burn works for me.
