I replayed Shenmue II disc 4 last night

Postby Himuro » Wed Jun 24, 2015 3:02 pm

I have a save specifically for when I want to replay it because I consider it one of gamings biggest milestones and achievements.

Before, it always made me sad, but last night I did it for the first time with the knowledge we are getting Shenmue III, and it made me really, really happy. I was happy seeing all of these questions and stuff that I may actually get answers to. Shenhua talks about water buffalo, and life in Bailu, and the old lady who taught her how to sew, all this stuff that's hinted in 3 you think you'll never see ever. And we're fucking getting it. We're actually going to get it! \:D/ Every time I played this section of the game I had a sense of melancholy, but for the first time I could sit back and enjoy it in full without pressure that I will never get answers to my questions.

I highly suggest everyone else do the same. What an amazing experience! =D>

Did the same, actually one of the emulators from here actually has a savegame from the start of it.

Fucking awesome.

Probably that's the seed of the "rapport system".

Yeah, I can see how the rapport system will probably be implemented after replaying it.

I have that saved as well. It's definitely my favorite part in Shenmue II. It's just absolutely beautiful. I'm planning on replaying it soon. Hell, I'm gonna play it tonight!

I'm just about to reach the Wiretappers room in the Tea Break Building in Kowloon. So psyched that I have Disc 4 waiting for me all over again. :heart:

I did too. I found out I sucked at QTE after not playing Shenmue II for quite some time!

But the walk with Shenhua is great, and the moment when they reach the cave always gives me goosebumps. It's good to remind oneself from time to time of why we are Shenmue fans, and why we have patiently been waiting for a sequel for such a long time.

I have played many great games over the years, but Shenmue and Shenmue II are truly special. No other games have given me that special feeling inside. It's like my whole body reacts to it.

Gonna do another special one, right before 3 hits! :D

Still think that the fucking laserbeam is way out of place, just make it like a secret door opens letting light come in and the light gets amplified by the sword and the mirror or something.

I replayed it after the announcement for the first time in like 10 years, the whole change of setting and atmosphere is amazing. And like you said we can view the things hinted in a positive way now!

And my username is a reference to disc 4... when you walk with Shenhua and Ask her something Ryo says: "Shenhua" and she replies: "nani?". If you play jpn version you are gonna hear that like 50 times.

Nothing will beat S2 Disc 3 for me. Kowloon was such an amazing location. Been fascinated with it ever since. Although I was in the camp that really enjoyed Disc 4 too. I hope the same amount of small details that Disc 4 had work their into Shenmue 3 (Shenhua and the dialogue choices and all that).

Such a good book. Glad I picked it up a couple years back. Probably harder to find now.
