I guess you'll have to settle with Shenmue IIx upskirt shots.

Just holding the place up as always bud. Waiting for Shenmue 3 and/or HD remakes to be announced and then I expect this place will begin a new chapter.

Always good to have you around Nick, try and hang out more. Need good chaps to talk to with the downtime in Shenmue 3 causing the convo to stagnate a bit.

Not too bad. It's weird, I started posting on here at a time of my life that now seems "awesome" so is viewed with a lot of nostalgia, but also when the "internet" and forums were kinda new and crazy and people who trolled could be highly funny because back then you may not have seen that particular stunt yet. Definitely fun times. A lot of us are quite cynical old cunts now. :lol:

Totally. It's an indefinable mixture of nostalgia and a genuine sense that things were so different then. Most of us were so young and carefree so it's easy to look back through rose tinted glasses. The community was so tightly knit and active too, nowadays we have Reddit and stuff, it's bigger and infinitely more accessible but I would argue that it's not nearly as much fun. I don't have much free time these days but I never go too long without a good lurk here.

It isn't all nostalgia though. Way back when the internet was nearly all geeks and other nerds, free of the dregs of society and their scams and endless pictures of what they had for dinner. It seemed like an untapped frontier of limitless untapped potential or government regulation. And it was ours. Technology was still improving so rapidly that the gap between N64 and Dreamcast generations was simply gigantic. The leaps in the games we were playing with titles like Shenmue have scarcely been matched since. We were still riding the coattails of the 90's, a golden age of prosperity so much better than the times we now find ourselves that the nation's biggest worry was a guy lying about getting a blowjob. Prosperity and liberty itself feel eroded since then, and I'm not sure that's all just rose tinted goggles.
