It was about a month before you took over, but I'm not havin a dig at anyone, just surprised it went unnoticed by practically everyone. I've always wondered n'all why some of the original members have never popped in out of curiosity. Especially after Shenmue III was announced.

Yea, it's crossed my mind too, where so many of the names have gone. Even after Shenmue 3 was announced, we had a good few back. Perhaps the interest in Shenme has just.... gone. For good with a lot of them. But despite the loss of interest, Shenmue 3 still represented an element of closure in their lives that they still felt they needed to be a part of. Perhaps some have forgotten here altogether.

For myself, being here 15 years has its downfalls. I struggle to remember a lot of it now. The old days of this place are a distant memory now, and I can barely remember anything about them. Even the time line of this place is one vast blur.

I think it’s more of a fact that they may no longer be into games as a whole, not just Shenmue specifically. It happens a lot; peoples’ interests change especially when things like family and work can get in the way. A lot of people who would play games stop and forget about them a few years down the line. Because I am pretty certain that if they still had an interest in games, they’d still have an interest in Shenmue and would have come here after S3 was announced.

Andy's gotta be the biggest surprise for me. He's like what I'd be like if I had a kid.

The Movie "The Burbs" (Blu-ray) from Joe Dante arrived me today. So happy to watch it again after a very long time, maybe about 19 years? It's one of my favourite movies with Tom Hanks.

Walking around Chinatown in Sydney, when suddenly...

We're in a fairly dry news period for Shenmue. I don't know what else to tell you.

Would look a lot better without all the shitty chromatic aberration.

Then surely you must feel right at home then. Back to the good old days.
