Very good questions in here. Would've loved to add one myself but couldn't quite think of any as everything has pretty much already been asked here. Looking forward to the interview!

Update: the interview has been completed and covered a good number of the questions gathered from everyone's submissions earlier, which I'm really happy about. The transcript is being worked on and should be posted up on the blog within the next few days.

Eric even kindly recorded this short promo as Ren. :)

Wow this is really awesome.

My only complaint which I have to mention, is that I really wish the question asking if he's gonna portray Ren or "X character" in Shenmue 3 shouldn't have been asked. Yeah nice and fun speculating story questions like "Do you think Ryo gonna marry Shenhua?" "Will Giuzhang leave the warehouse and reunite in Ryo in China like he was supposed to" lol etc. and speculating on that is nice. Because it is fun and playing around and it may or may not happen in the story, but it's harmless.

But going into more private questions like that when the game is very close to being complete. Like "Are you gonna play Ren/Giuzhang in Shenmue 3?" "What happens to Ren in Shenmue 3?" etc. In media and press usually people keep quiet about those types of things, and that was nice enough for him to be honest and sadly say he hasn't been contacted, it was still an inappropriate question.

So when you do future interviews and get questions like that, and you're interviewing an actor or a designer/artist whatever. Weed out questions like that. There is a fine line between being fun and asking an inappropriate question.

But other than that nice interview you gave. Again it was nice for him to take his time for us fans to answer questions and I'm happy my questions were answered.

Thank you. :)

:lol: I honestly didn't expect my throwaway question about Gui living in his dads warehouse to be answered or even asked. Thank you for doing it and I thank him for the answer. Great work overall!

Personally I did think it was a fair question to include, being a topic of interest to many fans. You'll notice that Eric himself had already alluded to not having being contacted yet in the previous question, so it was more a clarification of his point. But thank you for the feedback.

I'm especially pleased you like the video! I think you can really hear the energy and positive vibe in his voice when he talks.
