Been lurking for about 8-9 years. I came here after googling how to fix my dreamcast and I think I found a thread here or linked from here on how to do so and stuck around. I've made a couple of accounts over the years but never posted. With Shenmue 3 being announced, and hopefully Shenmue 4/5 to complete the story, it seems a good time to join in. There have been massive disappointments each year and I'm glad we are going to finally get a continuation of the story... anyway hi!

And Ladettes? There are female members on here.... ;)

Welcome btw

I'm currently replaying Shenmue 1 now and will get to Shenmue 2 right after (and just bought an original Xbox just for it lol). I never have finished Shenmue II :oops: (the X360 emulation really bothered my experience), but now I am determined to finally finish it now. Shenmue 1 is such a great game and I am glad (and obviously many others) to see it is finally getting another installment. I'm proud to announce that I donated $100 to the Shenmue III KS, even if I haven't completed Shenmue II yet.

My favorite franchises are Streets of Rage, Metal Gear Solid, etc. I am also an active member in the Streets of Rage community. Glad to be on here! :)

Welcome and nice one for pledging!

Can't believe you've never completed S2- that's gonna be a good experience :)

@ Saven.

see you around! :P
one warning was absolutely fair, was over zealous on conviction on a response to a subject.
the other one for 'spam' (aka: it was me posting that qualified) which is bogus due to personality clash. why don't who this concerns pull the other guy for destroying my subject, accusing it of SPAM?
oh, i get it now, not one of your cliques, and i watched you stand by and and let him trash it, and you did NOTHING but was complicit in your silence, and totally one sided and agree with it by inactions. (you have the temerity to pull me for spam, and yet, you let your lackey cliquey friends shit on my subjects? double-standards, real fuckin professional dude.)
at least the other staffer explained where i was wrong, and backed it up clearly in writ. :roll:

Then went on a huge hiatus, signed up with my normal email address last year to comment on something then forgot the password and username.. so here I am again. :D So happy to be back talking about Shenmue and part of the expanded Shenmue Family. \:D/

Hello Shenmue Community,

Just a few words to introduce myself.

I'm from Switzerland and I'm 41 years old.

I played Shenmue I & II when they came out for Dreamcast a life ago and as many of you, fell desperately in love with the saga created by Suzuki San. The dream of seeing the sequel of Ryo's adventures one day never left me and as you can imagine, the annoucement of the Kickstarter back in june just sent me to the moon emotionally speaking.
I've of course backed the game and now the long wait for the dream becoming reality begins...

I've followed Shenmuedojo in the last years but never had the "heart" to register.

I would like to thank the guys at Shenmue Dojo for everything they've done this whole time and I would like to thank the whole community from the bottom of my heart to make the rebirth of Shenmue real.

So proud to be part of this family. :heart:

Those, who follow the path of a warrior, must be ready to die, in order to stand for one's convictions, live for one's convictions, die for one's convictions. That is how I lived my life.

hello!
see anything you like, hit the torrent download button and DON'T forget to seed. :P
dig around the forums for possible solutions, and failing that, create a subject.
take it easy! 8)

Hello! I'm 16 years old, and some of my interests include video games, anime (Favorite: Urusei Yatsura), movies and computers. I first played Shenmue a few months ago, and it has become one of my all time favorite games (next to other games like MGS, Snatcher, Policenauts, Streets of Rage II, and others).

I own Shenmue and Shenmue II (XBOX and Complete with DVD), but my copy of Shenmue only has a real disc 2. The other discs are burnt because of them being too scratched to play. I did just get around to sending the other discs somewhere to be resurfaced recently, however. I can't wait! :D

I'm currently playing Shenmue II at the moment, but I haven't played enough to judge it, yet. I'll judge it once I've beaten it.

Welcome, Gyo6161 and Tpgb12.

@Gyo: It's amazing that Shenmue can turn people into passionate fans, even after all those years. Don't worry about English. There are lots of non-native speakers here. :)

@Tpgb12: Again, your case shows how powerful and beautiful Shenmue is. A 16 year-old who first plays Shenmue in 2015 and becomes a fan. Wow! Just Wow! Welcome to the Shenmue Family!

I was 16 when I first played Shenmue. What can one say? You saved yourself 14 years of waiting, young man. You may perhaps never know the sweet feeling of joy, gratification and relief which I felt when S3 was announced. But on the other hand, you didn't have to live with that feeling of emptiness, that void which Shenmue 2's ending had left within my soul for well more than a decade.

Most of the people on this forum are about 30 years old now. Old people from your point of view. But don't worry, you'll hit 30 before you know it. :)

It makes me happy to see that Shenmue has been living on, even with younger players. :)

Welcome to the family, both of you!

Hi all,

I'm a long-time occasional lurker and just wanted to introduce myself to the community.

I completed Shenmue 1 back in 2001 as an 11 year old kid. I fell in love with the game and story, and it remains my favourite video game series. I ended up selling my Dreamcast before I could get my hands on Shenmue 2. But In 2003 I bought an Xbox with S2, and after completing it, I looked online to find out when S3 would be released, finding this forum along the way. I was disappointed to find out that it wasn't being made.

Every year since, I visited the forums during E3 time, hoping against hope for S3 to be announced. Each year was met with disappointment. I only re-played S2 one more time (around 2005), but knowing that S3 wouldn't be coming out made the game's cliff-hanger ending painful and sad. I couldn't bring myself to playing Shenmue again. I was losing hope, and at one point, I even wished that Yu Suzuki would at least release a book to bring the story to a closure if a game wouldn't be possible.

Fast-forward to 2015 - I visited the Dojo once again during E3. I wasn't very hopeful after all these years of disappointment. But to my amazement, S3 was actually announced! It was like a dream come true. Without hesitation, I pledged $100 towards the Kickstarter.

I haven't played a Shenmue game in over a decade, but my heart always longed for S3. Now that I know S3 is being developed, I'm considering getting my hands on a DC and S1 & S2 again. This time, it won't be painful to replay them with the knowledge that S3 is coming out.

I want to thank all of you for keeping the dream alive all these years!
