I just rewatched the Saturn footage. My god. I'm still so impressed by it. It was an incredible achievement, and it's such a shame that we can't play it! Do you think they'll ever release it in some form?

How I love to sail o'er the bounding sea
And I never, never, ever do a thing about the weather
For the weather never ever does a thing for me!

Suzuki said last year that the Saturn prototype was only 30% complete and not likely to become available, as they'd mainly progressed on the visuals without much in-depth content.

Absolutely beautiful rendition of "The Sadness I Carry on My Shoulders" by a YouTube pianist named Shipluss:

The hip throw always looked silly to me, yet I know it is a viable throw and if you do not know how to land you can seriously get hurt. Perhaps because I have not got myself to get "in there" with my hip yet to really apply it, but still, there is always that second of like... :-&

What is up with Chai?
Like really, how does one become as creepy and as unusual as him?
Also, I'm pretty sure you're lying if Chai didn't jumpscare you in the arcade fight.
I see.

I've always been quite fond of this explanation by KiBa (direct link: http://shenmuedojo.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=927987#p927987):

Anybody who doesn't understand Chai, doesn't understand the 1980s. Therefore, you're just too young to get it. By the time you were born, being a mutant freak wasn't cool anymore. But it was once, and Shenmue is a period piece. Complaining about Chai is like complaining about the presence of Nazis in a WWII movie. Chai is an obvious nod to the criminal freaks that were all the rage in the 80s. He is absolutely typical of, say, any given thug in 1980s New York City - in real life. I wish I could say it was just in the movies, but that decade was a very degenerate time, even for the frothing underbelly of society. Crime rates went through the roof, and being a good old fashioned gangster or mugger didn't cut it anymore. Gangs really did become packs of creatures, having lost every trace of their humanity. The most respectable scumbags donned mullets. Their underlings usually went with the mohawk, or completely bald like Chai; few were allowed to have eyebrows. Tattoos, piercings, bondage leather, and extensive body paint were common, as were STDs. The more mutated the hoodlum, the better. Chemicals were literally the best thing ever. According to the logic of the 80s, the more exposure to glowing mutagens, the better. The whole point was to act like an animal constantly, dressed in rags or rudimentary body armor (with spikes), raping, stealing, and killing everyone in your path, and all while polluting the environment at the same time. This breed was mostly wiped out by the mid-90s, but not before we got such gems as Death Wish, Streets of Rage, Robocop, Total Recall, and Bebop and Rocksteady. All things considered, Chai is rather tame for 1987, but he is a homage to the era nonetheless. He's as necessary a component as cassette tapes.

I just rewatched the old project Berkley video. https://youtu.be/GQ6-QRThA8A
Might be interesting for some of you to look back.

Anything outside of the M25 is a wasteland tbh. "Escape from new york" was based on a quiet Wednesday in Manchester

Not sure if this is worth getting our hopes up over, but according to this Eurogamer article, Bluepoint's next title will be a remake of a larger scope than Shadow of the Colossus.

Whatever it turns out to be, I'm sure it'll be great, but could it possibly be Shenmue? Surely not.

Yeah, that did cross my mind as well. I'd be just as happy with that, actually. ICO is closer to my heart than SOTC.
