I really hope that if the series dies or ends properly, they do a "proper ending" with Chobu Chan being the evil mastermind behind all of this. The big fat one that unlocks upon three starring everything with every character in Battle Rally.I hung out with my brother this weekend and played S3. He liked the realism of the first two games, as well as the gambling in S2.
He made two playful comments I now can't unsee:
-"Why are there no cops in Japan and China?"
-(Regarding the kung fu shop where you buy the fancy move) "Only in Shenmue could you walk into a martial arts shop, without doors, that has a bunch of axes and swords readily available on a table"
So too, both of us agreed Chobu-Chan killed Zhao Sunming. (Really, he thought the game was a nice throwback and is buying a copy.)
EDIT: Like Yu did the Mega64 ending.
