I had my first Shenmue 3 dream last night

Postby BlueCreeperBoy12 » Tue Jan 23, 2018 8:23 am

It started with my brother playing on his new gaming pc (that he doesn't have irl). I said "oh what are you playing?" To which he replied "the shenmue 3 demo." So I said "but you didn't pre order it?"
He told me that he did. So then I checked the Dojo to see if anyone was talking about the demo. They weren't.
I got on my pc and the demo was downloading on steam. So, when it finished I started playing. But it wasn't Shenmue. It was a first person shooter in Guilin.
"What is this? This isn't Shenmue." I said.

Then I woke up. How weird is that?
Oh, a sailor's life is the life for me
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!

I think this dream speaks to a deep subconscious fear that Shenmue 3 will not live up to expectations.
So, for you, this is symbolized by it being a FPS, which -- to you -- represents banal mediocrity.

The answer to your soul's yearning is to first lower your expectations. Let go. Don't expect to touch the face of God by playing Shenmue 3, just because you've waited so long for a miracle that actually happened. We're already living in dreamland, man. This is all magic. So, this isn't a "be careful what you wish for! ha ha" criticism. It is self-discipline. It's making the water of your soul clear so you can see the world as it really is. Govern your emotions, my friend, and you will enjoy Shenmue 3 in the right context.

Shenmue III was the worst thing to happen to this forum.

Redundant topic. Could someone please merge it with this one?

The topic I mentioned is even still active and I think this is better off in the S3 section.
