I don't have a problem with Ryos voice the main problem is he comes out with some dumb shit.

I also seem to remember one of the VA's saying on here they got told not to have any emotions?

I just read through the february 2000 issue of the German Dreamcast Magic that I recently bought for it's Shenmue article and it really put a smile on my face.

There is nothing better to show how much of an impact the game had then to read articles from around that time.
Things like "Shen Mue will usher in a new generation of video games" or "Comparable to: nothing" really just make me happy. :D

In this video:
phpBB [video]
Yu Suzuki says (through his translator):
"You can actually buy stuff at the convenience store and store it in the fridge."

I tried to do that (with Caned Tuna, Salami, Milk etc), but it didn't happen anything; no buttons, no interactions of that kind.

As a bonus, in that same video he says that:
"In Shenmue there is a technology called "Mouth Clip" which automatically synchronize the mouth of the game characters/models with the voice."

Never really liked this guy cause of his random potty mouthyness.. but cause he's apparently popular/well exposed enough good on him for doing a rant.

Agreed. I mean I curse a lot, so I'm not offended or anything. But this guy says fuck more times than a Scorsese movie, it's just annoying.

Haha, I love AlphaOmegaSin. I think his foul mouth adds to his charisma.

If anything, he needs to say FUCK more often lol.

A nice lounging to hear podcast about Shenmue: "The Fangamers Episode No. 5: We’re Looking for a Podcast Named Lan-Di".

Shenmue is an experience for your eyes to see, with messages for your mind to think, and emotions for your soul to feel.

^At least it could lessen the expectations for some players, expecting to play a full of adrenaline bursts kind of beat-em-up action-sequence game...

Nowadays, it could be accompanied by the following thought found here:
With all this talk about a possible Shenmue 3 all the Shenmue trolls are out in full force.

"Shenmue sucked!", "Shenmue was boring!", "I hate QTEs and minigames". Yada yada.

All I hear is “I’m a fa**ot, I will stick to my COD and avoid anything with a good story due to the fact that I have the attention span of a 4 year old”.

If Shenmue 3 is possible, then anything is possible.

Main difference among almost every other open world game & Shenmue:
in first ones you *destroy* their worlds, in #Shenmue you're LIVING them

That just made my day! I never knew that you can actually hit that gong. How did you find that out? I'm surprised they've hidden that by having to perform somewhat cryptic actions.

Man I just love it when I learn something new about Shenmue. The game really is like life, you always and forever learn from it!
