    Default Shenmue

    Okay, so I keep seeing references to the fact that Shenmue was supposed to be a 16 part series... yet there is only one US game and two Europe... what's the story?

    It's not over yet. If I'm not mistaken:

    Shenmue: Chapter 1
    Shenmue 2: Chapters 2-4

    Considering that the Dreamcast is dead... and that Shenmue 2 was never released in the US that I know of... what's coming?

    Ah... right. I guess I'll continue to be several years behind the curve.

    I thought it was meant as a 12-parter? I could be wrong though.

    It was just over-ambition by the sounds of it. The chances of a 12-16 part game appearing on one console (to enable saved games continuity) was pretty unlikely whatever console it started on. I think it's stilll in development though.

    Well, according to a press conference or something, the 16 chapters will engulf, if I'm not mistaken, 4 games.

    I'm too lazy to check fan sites.

    Oh, bugger all. Hang on, I'll go look around.

    There. I was a bit mistaken, but you can see why.

    Yeah... that's pretty cool. I guess I should actually play through the first one so I can get ready for the next... though I don't see myself with an xbox for a long time.
