A Supposed "New" Shenmue Game And Other Useless News

There's a new Shenmue game on the horizon.  No, it is NOT Shenmue III.  It's "Shenmue Town," some sort of mobile-phone social game.  I really don't know how this is gonna work out.

You really ought to read some of the comments in that Kotaku article.  My favorite one is this:

Said it before but I'll say it again, I'm constantly feeling bad for Sega fans. They suffer regularly.

You think so?  You think my head pops off the pillow every morning with optimism knowing that Sega racers get the short end of the stick while every other racing game thrives despite the fact that racing games as a genre is a JOKE now?  I really feel bad for Shenmue fans, really I do.  I think we'll get it on Xbox Live Arcade someday, assuming Sega plows full-steam ahead with their Dreamcast campaign...

Funny thing is that Kotaku was the first to break this story.  Sega Nerds didn't get to it first, wtf...

EDIT: Nevermind, here's the Sega Nerds article which is more informative.


Also, Dead Rising 2 is starting to piss me off.  I've grown thick skin to these kind of games so it really doesn't bother me anymore from a gruesome/offensive standpoint.  I'm going achievement hunting and it gets old after a while.  I will review it later in more detail.

Speaking of zombies (yet again), Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 are sold as a pack for just $10 on Steam.  I say get it now if you haven't already cause it's a really good deal.  I actually bought it, but much to my chagrin, my laptop can hardly play it...yeah, that's great.  I could've sworn my laptop ran Half-Life 2 in the past with some success, but now, it's just a mess.  Not easy to install new video cards or whatever.  And now you know why console gaming is surpassing PC gaming by a mile--cause I don't feel like breaking the bank for some fancy gaming PCs with superior processors and video cards when I can just pop the game into my 360...and get achievement points while I'm at it!


Also, make sure you enter GameFAQs' pathetic contest on The Best Game Of The 2000's.  I didn't overthink any pics, but I think it will come down to Metal Gear Solid 3 vs. Super Smash Bros. Melee (with SSB winning).  Really, I never win any of these damn contests no matter how confident I feel so what's the point.  Just try for fun, I guess.


Now for sports.  The MLB playoffs are under way and the Phillies pitched a no-hitter in Game 1 which is the first time for a playoff game.  Really, no-hitters are still special nowadays?  There must've been like 7 or 8 no-hitters this season (I vaguely pay attention) so I don't know what the heck's going on--the pitchers are suddenly good or the batters just suck.  Must be something in the air...increased air resistance, chemicals which make you high, earth's gravitational pull is reversed, etc.

And the NFL is a mess now with only one undefeated team, the Chiefs who had a bye week already (3-0, not 4-0).  They play the Colts, Titans, and Texans next so I don't see them going 7-0.  Wow, what an interesting season already--everyone's getting beat down nowadays.  Lots of teams in playoff contention thus far.  It will be interesting to see how this pans out.
