Ryo needs to stop carelessly shoving everything in his back pocket, plus aren't Japanese suppose to be overly polite, and such, shoving pictures in your back pocket, is hardly a showing of a well meaning gesture lol.

I'm pretty sure that is legit though, for the link, I seriously just copy/pasted the link to the first site I found with the info on it.

The article the site shows, has basically gone viral, so the odds are this test, was a real thing sigh.

Even a lot of the more reliable/more trustworthy youtubers are talking about such.

EDIT: Dark Souls and Bloodborne are perfect examples of contemporary games that give very little - if any - hints as to where you should go next, hence why exploration and the sense of discovery in those games feels so organic and wonderful. In Dark Souls, as soon as you land in Firelink Shrine, there are three directions in which you can head at your will with absolutely no restriction: the Catacombs, Undead Burg, and New Londo Ruins. Only after getting absolutely massacred at two of the three does it occur to the player that Undead Burg is the right way to go at that point in the game.


Or a jump button for that matter :)

I've actually just started playing Dark Souls, heard alot of good things about it.

You're in for a real treat, man. One of the best games of the last generation.

Did anybody actually play through Shenmue I with "Magic Weather"/the historical Yokosuka weather? I mean, it's cool that it was included but I wonder what else the budget allocated for that could have been spent on instead :P

I did.

It makes it easier to trigger certain weather-related events, like the Nozomi/bullies thing after it snows (or something like that).

Interesting, forgot that there were weather-related triggers in the game!

Wow, that is really intresting thanks. Perhaps I should use this on a new playthrough.

I might try experimenting with PC stuff, creating custom box arts for Shenmue 3 some time!

Yesterday I dreamed about Shenmue 3 :rotflmao: :roflmao: It was about that tech demo that Cedric tweeted about.

It started with a snowy place, showing the new weather engine, there were rabbits deers and other animals there, then the camera panned out, a lot of flowers in blossom and petals started to fly around the sky, in a beautiful manner, and suddenly it changed to a beautiful spring with green mountains and hills plenty of life.

A figure appeared from the distance, it was Shenhua, she was walking around the environment, she seemed very happy and plenty of life too, her outfit was different but similar to her traditional one, she was wearing a hat and had longer hair than before ( I know it makes no sense, but I don't have control over my dreams xD)
While she was walking she meet Ryo, our Ryo, it was the CG Ryo xD, and then when everything was getting interesting I woke up T_T

In my dream Shenhua's dress was gorgeous, I am not very good at drawing, but I tried to make a sketch of the basics.

Man I wish I could take a photo out of my Dream that whole thing was gorgeous.
