TBH I played Yakuza 1 back whenever it came out and didn't love it as much as I loved Shenmue 2. I don't remember why. I just remember horrible loading times & a terrible random encounter rate. I didn't keep up with the series until I got my PS4 and played 0.

I'm strongly considering getting the fist of the north star yakuza clone, what's the word on it am I better off getting judgment?

Judgment is awesome. You can't go wrong with Judgment. I unfortunately completed Judgment just before starting Shenmue 3. Haven't played FotNS. I think it's on the old Yakuza engine.

i'd take Judgment over FoTNS

Fist was fine but i definitely had the feeling "i played this before" whereas Judgment felt fresh

That's a real breakthrough if I ever saw one. Congrats.

I wasn't really looking for a breakthrough. I was hoping it'd be a good game b/c the first two are so near and dear to my heart. :'( The last part of the game really pissed me off if you can't tell.

I kind of trailed off from it, still in the first area even, and never went back. This development in mortimer’s opinion is...not good for me getting up the steam to try again

I personally don't think it's worth it if you're already not feeling it. The next area, Niaowu, is a "city," but maybe the most artificial feeling city I've seen in a game in a long time. There are hardly any NPCs walking around and the entire town is filled with stores that sell completely useless stuff you need to buy so you can flip it at a pawn shop and earn more money. All you do in this game is try to earn money doing the most tedious, soul-sucking stuff. You can't even earn money most of the time. You have to win tokens, trade the tokens for junk, then trade the junk for money. This always takes like half an hour and ends up with me earning like 1/15 of what I need to earn to get to the next mission. I can't take it anymore.

The mini games are almost all terrible: you throw rocks into a bucket in one of the many thrilling mini games; in another, you throw a basketball into a hoop using the same exact controls and mechanics as the rock game; in another, you throw a golf ball into a hole using the same mechanics as the rock and basketball games.

The story also doesn't go anywhere interesting. In fact, I'm not sure there's been any story up to the point I have gotten to. I'm still looking for Shenhua's dad and trying to earn 5,000 yuan so I can buy a book.

This game makes me feel like I'm being punished. The 3-second music loops are absolutely hellish. I felt like I was having a nervous breakdown playing it the other night. I had to pop in Yakuza Kiwami to come down from it.

i rushed in here thinking yu had died

yeah, i gave up on this. i really think it would have been better off had they limited their graphical ambitions to the dreamcast era, even if it is telling that shenmues 1 and 2 are still better looking games than 3. but i think had they limited their graphical ambitionsn that strictly they might have had the cash to do more mechanically

So Adult Swim and Crunchyroll are working on a 13-episode Shenmue anime that goes up to the end of Shenmue 2. I’m kind of psyched. Think it could be a good way to get the next game a much larger audience.

There's some serious time lapse issues with mortimer stopping posting in March and this account starting in August and it feeling like it hasnt' been that long since I read a mortimer post

It’s kind of weird a Shenmue show is gonna be on TV 20 years after the first game came out. This is like a AAA production. Feeling good about Shenmue 4 now at least.
