Drugs in Shenmue?

Postby Jesse » Wed Jun 14, 2017 5:43 pm

I don't think this has been posted before but I was wondering is there any mention of drugs in the game? I don't recall there being any unless I missed random dialogue somewhere. I think it would add even more interesting details.

Master Chen talks about this matter when he talks to Ryo about the Mad Angels.
Oh and what an opporunity to bring out this joke gif I made a while ago.

Lol. I don't think its ever mentioned what kind of drugs. I just had a random thought about it when Mark mentions the Long Zha. Side note if any of the characters were on drugs who would it be and what kinds?

Drugs could be why Shozo is homeless. He could be doing extracurricular activities in the warehouses for drug money.

I think its basically implied with the whole Chinese cartel in the docks thing. I remember being shocked at the revolver texture in Shenue II (That was censored in EU if memory serves) but all this shouldn't be too surprising really i mean what else are they gonna be shipping lol?

The revolvers can still be found in the European version. They aren't really anything to get excited about.
It's just a blocky and absolutely flat texture on the table. Might just aswell be part of the tablecloth.

I was playing through the section in shenmue 2 where you listen to the wiretapper's cassette tapes and at one moment they talk about a mule running off with 500 of something.
