Many thanks to you Peter for your incredible support over the year, and for helping to spread the word about new articles on your Twitch streams. I've found the enthusiasm of Shenmue fans to be quite amazing, and it's what provided the inspiration and motivation to make the blog. It's an absolute pleasure to spend time on this project.
