    (SpecialK was used for toggling the UI and DOF shaders which also got rid of the black bars during cutscenes conveniently enough.)

    Bit dated but really fun to play so far, granted so far is pretty much just the start of the second chapter after having one scene after another with old men using WAY to much hair gel having a staring and scowling contest with the main character. :p
    Excellent combat though whenever they get done staring down one another and things actually proceed to beat-down mode and in-between there's some story scenes driving everything forward one epic brawl at a time. :D

    With some not-so-serious moments in-between and probably for some of the later on optional content that can be stumbled upon.

    Definitively, just exploring the entertainment district and finding these side missions have been really entertaining and then the main story itself plus the free form combat and all the ways you can upgrade your combat styles and just utilize the environment plus the game provides a nice amount of challenge though some of it is also from trying to learn the mechanics and I absolutely suck at QTE's ha ha.

    (And on the opposite side we have, whatever this could be.)

    (Dialogue choices, oh this is going to go great giving players a choice between the obvious right answer, the really wrong answer and the really weird answer so yeah #3 it is.)

    The game has a first person perspective but the render resolution is far lower when using this so it's no good for trying to take screenshots since it will be very blurred and pixelated thus destroying finer details.

    EDIT: Ah I think I found the story again.

    A little bit, from what I have heard some of the setup sounds similar with a small but very detailed area that can be fully explored as you unravel the story though Shenmue is older and from what I have heard the first game has a bit of busywork in it as you need to uncover events on certain days or a specific time of day and if you miss it you have to wait a while. Second game introduced something like fast forward though from the sounds of it the upcoming re-release will not the bringing this to the first title.

    Shenmue 1 re-release should also be based on the XBox version so it differs a bit asset wise from the Dreamcast version with higher res textures but lower geometry detail and the licensed textures and such were replaced with generic brands.
    Haven't played the myself though but I heard they got good feedback but might not hold up with modern games although having backed Shenmue 3 via Kickstarter I am interested in seeing the original two games for myself so it's nice to see them getting a re-release on current generation systems. :)


    EDIT: For Yakuza Zero here there's also a Steam community guide for how to restore the removed original soundtracks from the intro, outro and the attract mode videos although since it replaces two movie files and then also one of the game archives it's a bigger 2.7 GB download for mainly two songs being changed out. :)

    Something similar apparently happened in some of the earlier games too but it seems nothing else was removed or altered in this version of the game and it's very likely any cut content in the other installments will also be restored once their remakes roll out.


    For which Yakuza Kiwami should be up next as the remaster of Yakuza 1 and probably followed by Yakuza 6 and Yakuza 2's remasters next year and whenever the PC port for these will be scheduled and then the rest of them.


    EDIT: And from what I know there were actually a few other proto adventure/walking simulator games but Shenmue is one of the early and also pretty widely renowned ones although initial sales weren't the best from what I've been reading up on.

    Lots of somewhat obscure Japanese developed games as well but now we're going from PS3, PS1, Dreamcast and all those way to the FM Towns and PC-98 systems of the 1980's and a lot of games that will probably remain mostly unknown though while screens and such can look impressive I don't think the gameplay has held up as well.

    LSD Dream Emulator for one back on PSX which I first learned about just a few weeks ago.

    Looks like Spiely here took ALL the drugs.

    [​IMG]
    Well, almost all the drugs.

    [​IMG]
    Oh what could possibly go wrong.


    EDIT: And something outside of cutscenes or dialogue.

    (Yeah sure it will, prepare to dine edition! Pfft.)


    EDIT: Also taking up a fair bit of space so tagged just as with Yakuza 0 above.

    Kuze's one helluva character though Nishitami isn't half bad either, for the main characters though Majima is definitively more interesting than Kiryu so far but both have their moments.

    Guy never gives up. :D

    [​IMG]

    Well he's on cooldown now at least. :p

    Yeah!

    Well that's certainly a surprise fight. Yakuza in a tea-house. Hella tough too.

    [​IMG]

    NOOO-

    [​IMG]
    -OOO

    Ha ha. Wonder how the game is going to try to top that crazy little battle dungeon.


    EDIT:

    [​IMG]

    Excellent game really, candidate for title of the year so far, amazing.

    Image embedded above is during the end of combat and the blue tinted view it briefly uses so not as much of a spoiler, the non-embedded one though while I really liked how it turned out is a actual end-game spoiler.

    The main menu, minus most of the UI elements.
    (Rotten vale I presume. Haven't found it yet but heard about it and that seems fitting.)

    The newest resour..member of the expedition team, Nocab :p

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sadly the game won't let you have him "assist" in the kitchen area of the home base, oh well. :D
    (Guess he won't have his full name just yet. Nocab Regrub, ha ha.)
    Terrible with names. <-
    Eh, it works.

    Everything so far on this expedition to the island of nope is going the wrong way so I guess it keeps the theme really keeping it backwards heh.

    Yeah you can't really name the pig AFAIK. But the main duo of Rennid and Tressed the battle-cat / dress-up monster distraction is still going strong one weak critter at a time working up the chain to the big tooth/fang/tail things.

    Just started playing this, and I am very pleasently surprised.

    Appears to run on an engine very similar to Skyrim, but reminds me of Oblivion in how the world feels large and unconstrained. Which brings me to the other point, the quests are once again numerous and well thought out [which is exactly how they felt in Oblivion], while the general aesthetics and lore are perefctly balanced.

    Finally, the online element feels seamless. Lots of people (and their pets!) about, so you really do feel like your in an MMO. Overall, ESO appears to have taken many of the best elemnts of the series, and executed them in an online environment remarkably well.

    p.s.

    So far, no bugs to speak of, either ?!?

    It's pretty polished, they took a existing MMO engine (Hero Engine I think?) and updated it and by now it really shows. Sunk a lot of hours into the game but took a break because it was getting a bit too time consuming and I had done most of the PvE exploration and missions over the course of a few hundred hours and wasn't a fan of the focus Zenimax was putting on the micro transactions so I decided to let it rest for a while.

    Summerset seems like a really good piece of content now and I guess the dungeon additions are nice for delvers who are into organized groups and raiding for these new items and other rewards or just the challenge.
    Still wanna see the rest of the pieces of Tamriel not yet included but I guess some of them like Elseweyr will be hard to implement due to lore being kinda confusing ha ha.

    And one of these days Akavir will have to be added to some Elder Scrolls game after all the teasing of the fun and adventures over there.

    Yes, to be honest, I did feel the Loot Box function was reminiscent of online gambling, but I'm willing to look past that and the initial "Crown Store advert" when logging in, as it's not so obtrusive once you start to play and can hold out on any gambling urges! ;)

    Hiding the player model turned out to only work partially since the head mesh is part of the overall geometry for the shader toggle so yeah...oh I'm sure a floating head is easy enough to overlook.

    This..doesn't really work. :D
    (Teeth and eye are separate too.)

    EDIT: Well time to experiment with the binocular item then, zoom might be a bit tricky for screenshots though but eh it might be OK though the hub areas don't allow for using items.


    EDIT: Binoculars seem to work, at least for the various adventure maps though some scenes see a increase in brightness from toggling off the vignette and chromatic aberration effect.
