Can anyone tell me the correct Chinese pronunciation of both Wude and Ziming?

Wude: woohduuh ziming: zi like zinc, ming like ming dynasty. At least thats what I heard from a chinese YouTuber long ago.

Thanks. I wasn't quite sure how to say Wude still, so I recorded myself speaking them here: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1Wxjs4pm93A

Is it like the first one, or the second one? Also, is Ziming spoken correctly here (despite my accent)?

Wude is almost correct you'll want a really small break between wu and de like wooh-duh. Ziming is really nice. :D

Edit: No cigar on finding the video with the correct pronunciation, I did remember another let's player who even explained how wude is pronounced and what it really means but I can't seem to find the bit where he says it.

Edit2: listning to your recording again, wude nr2 is correct nevermind my comment. :)

Drawing parallels with the Half-Life series is nothing new, but reading the first message on this page, it's kinda funny to recognize just how much of it has been said by Shenmue fans over the years.

It is impressive.

You may have noticed that this week the last person at SEGA that had anything major to do with writing Shenmue 3 finally left the company. It hardly seems worth the trouble of repeating but I think this is the very final nail in the coffin. Technically there could still be another Shenmue, but even if they did do it now the chances of it being anything like the originals is extremely remote. It’d basically be like fanfic at this point, as far as I’m concerned.

Not that I’m too worried about having to put up with inferior knock-off Shenmue, as I think it’s pretty obvious we’re not going anything. What I don’t understand is why they couldn’t have just finished the story off in a novel or comic or something. Or got Telltale to do it or something. I mean the last game finished on a serious cliffhanger and then that’s just it.

I also wonder what on earth this writers were doing at SEGA all these years? Were they really creatively fulfilled writing the little messages when you click on someone in PSO 2? Did they actually end up writing 20 different scripts for Shenmue 3 but ended up binning them all? It’s like as if they stopped Star Wars at The Empire Strikes Back and then George Lucas went on to found Amazon instead.

BlueMue uploaded a fantastic day-to-night time-lapse of Dobuita, complete with the "Hey, mister! Wanna play with me?" kid doing his best Slender Man impersonation from 3:48 :lol:

I'm happy that you enjoyed this! If this interesting to watch in general then I'll do more of those time-lapse videos.

I wonder what caused the kid to just stand there for all that time. It looks like three models spawn in one after the other and seemingly merge together before settling on the kid with the yellow jacket and remains stationary 'til the day ends. Strange stuff.

I think there was too much going on at one point. The game confused the spawning and then it somehow didn't load the routine for this NPC. Too much standing in one place? That's what I guess at least. In any way this was interesting and funny to see.

Any chance of a time-lapse in Shenmue 2 ?

Yeah I've been thinking about it there too. With no real NPC routines this would be more for the sky though.
It's nice enough to look at on it's own with the much more defined sky box and moving clouds.

Yamanose and the Harbour would make great time-lapse videos, too; the shrine visitors and the forklifts running free, especially. By my recollection, I've only ever seen Liu-san visit the shrine for its intended purpose - does anyone else make a visit, too?
