What's happened in your life in the past 14 years?

Postby Birty » Wed Jun 17, 2015 3:42 pm

After taking some inspiration from a Facebook status I saw from MiTT3NZ , I thought would ask if any important events have happened in your lives since we ended with Shenmue II? I've been to university and got an honours degree, learned to drive, bought my own car, got a long term girlfriend, and a boat load of other stuff that's insane to think how long we have waited. Oh and we even created the new forums in that time haha. Any exciting stories?

I didn't play Shenmue 1 or 2 14 years go.

I played them in 2006. :p

But, since I did play them? My grandma and grandpa died (different sides of the family, so everyone was affected) around Christmas in 2006. It was the worst Christmas I ever had and its been had for me to enjoy the holiday ever since.

I graduated college.

I got a job, dated people.

I started exploring my sexuality more and managed to admit to myself I like men while also realizing I was transgender. I later transitioned from male to female.

I've focused on my art heavily to achieve my dream of working in animation and so far, let's just say, that goal is going well so far. :)

Next up? Moving to LA. \:D/

Wow that's amazing! Incredible the amount of time that has passed and the amount of things that actually can happen in life in that amount of time.

Let's see -

*Went to uni, got an English Literature degree
*Got a few full time jobs, the current one being a support worker for people with autism (with shit pay for what it involves)
*Realised I was gay and came out gradually to family and friends
*Moved out of my parents house
*Got a long-term boyfriend, who I currently share a house with
*Started writing a novel, and also currently trying to get a poetry collection published

It's crazy to think all this has happened in my life since Shenmue II came out...and by the time 3 does, I will be 30 years old...goddamn...

I played Shenmue at the year it came out, 1999 and in Japanese at the time. Since then I went on to move from country to country, got a college degree, a fiancee and witness two business of mine fail lol.

Finished highscool, moved alone, started cinema at uni - dropped, got into a few bands, started game programming - depression and dropped.

I'm now doing a videogame in unity, trying to get a book of short stories published and opening a little beer bussiness.

Hopefully I'll get 2/3 succeding.

But I think Shenmue III happening is a good signal for 3/3

At some point in the last 14 years (I think it was 2004 or 2005), my girlfriend bought me Shenmue 2 for the Dreamcast, for my birthday. Last year, I married that girl.

I also finished school, college, university, have had multiple jobs, bought my own house with my wife etc etc.

I've also completed both Shenmue 1 and 2 probably more than a dozen times each.

Looking back on it, it seems incredible. It feels like only yesterday that the year was 2000, I was living with my parents and I received Shenmue on Christmas day for my glorious Dreamcast. That game blew my mind!

Ah quite a lot - got married, tried to immigrate to Japan (Without success), got a daughter, changed jobs, got a car license, two cars, visited Japan over 10 times, learned programming and so on. Not necessarily in that order, but yeah i guess that pretty much sums it up. And just got older.

Yeah, I forgot we were the same age :lol:
It's also really cool to see the forums this active again...really takes me back to those good old days, browsing the forum on my AOL dial-up connection and having to come off when my parents wanted to use the phone :rotflmao:

What restricted you from moving over there? It's one place I have never visited and the revival of Shenmue makes me want to go even more again.

Graduated high school. Completed some college. Bounced around from a few jobs. Both my grandparents died in the same week :( . My Celtics won the NBA Finals in 2008. Became involved in my first serious relationship. Sadly got addicted to opiate painkillers :/ what a rough road that's been. Recovery is a bitch. And by the time III comes out I'll be 29 or 30.
Waiting for Shenmue III like...

It's been a long road mate, we can experience it all together when it finally gets here! :)
