Special reports, analysis, and background information for heroes of the role-playing genre or hobby generals, and single-player enthusiasts from professionals who know the game. Your benefits:
Video games’ history is at risk of being lost. Since software, unlike films or music, aren’t quickly converted into new formats, games from the past disappear with every next-generation console. In the gray legal space of emulators and the slowly, however, dying equipment, preservation lies in the hands of the rights holders.
From orphanage to the traveler in the world
The story of Shenmue starts with the cold winter months when teen Ryo Hazuki witnesses the killing of his dad by the mysterious Lan Di and pursues revenge. But first , he needs to determine where he went to. From the sleepy suburbs of Yokosuka, the Japanese Port city of Yokosuka, Ryo begins his investigative work and stumbles upon an eerie conspiracy.
First walking simulator
Shenmue is believed to be the pioneer in an open-world genre. But, those who play Shenmue for the first time must adjust their expectations. Yokosuka is a collection of streets. It is Hong Kong in the second section, which is considerably larger yet far from the scale of a whole city.
It is still impressive to see the care in which the world is transformed into a living entity. Yokosuka, as well as Hong Kong, consists of just a few streets, yet they seem alive. Stores are open and closed, employees go to work and relax in the evening in the bar, and children play on the streets until they need to sleep.
Even the bustling streets of the urban environment remain a crowded place and are a visual treat, which even the most modern titles with a graphic design do not necessarily manage.
A setting in which traditional gameplay is mostly irrelevant. Players must follow the breadcrumbs to find Lan Di through clues from one to the next. Ryo must earn money each day through other tasks (such as operating forklifts at the harbor) to pay for tickets to Hong Kong in the first section – but there are many opportunities to will allow you to burn the coals elsewhere, like Gashapon vending machines featuring collectible characters of famous Sega characters or arcades in which you can play games like Space Harrier and Outrun.
