Shenmue I & II remasters have been announced as coming to the PS4, XB1 and PC, in advance of the third game’s release.

I remember someone (Ben?) saying they’d never played it before.

This is a pretty good write-up of why the game is an important one historically, but might not hold up so well today.


#1469

Yeah, weren’t the originals Dreamcast only?

In any case, interesting news. Given the age of the originals, it’ll have to be a proper remaster job too.

Smart to do these ahead of the third game.


#1470

I think the second one got a PS2 and/or Xbox port, but I might be wrong.

Apparently the upgrade DLC cost if you own the original is going to be just £3.99/US$4.99.

Well done, Sega.

Excellent news. I’ve been playing it quite a bit recently as I’ve realised Doom isn’t really suitable viewing for a toddler but she loves Sonic.

Speaking of Doom the soundtrack is getting a physical release:

I’ll be picking up a copy. I’ve listened to it a heap on spotify but it’ll be nice to have a hands on copy.


#1479

I know I’m gonna sound like an old fart, but I really prefer the very first Doom’s OST… This one was waaaay too overhyped for what it really is… u_u


#1480

It is brilliant for the pure nostalgia factor…

While the most recent one is brilliant for the scope and ambition. As Mick Gordon said it is reminiscent of a concept album.


#1481

Ended up rewatching the talk Mick Gordon gave on the soundtrack.

I love the use of the original Doom chainsaw sound!!!


#1482

I’m more partial to this version of the OG DooM Sound track… =P

E1M8 is particularly haunting and epic (towards 23.20)

Also, no it’s not only for nostalgia’s sake… it’s a good bunch of songs, they fit very well the vibe… I’m not as much a fan of DooM2’s though, even if there’s a lot of people who prefer that one.

The thing that I didn’t like about Mick Gray’s one is that there’s no discernible melody, they all kind of blend together and they all sound very same-y… it’s all a weird fusion of D-jent and dubstep…

But speaking of old soundtracks… The Streets of Rage ones still remain some of the best soundtracks in gaming…


#1483

The SoR soundtracks were amazingly ahead of their time. I heard modern pop music today that often reminds me of elements from those games.
