Am replaying Shenmue 1 and 2 in advance of 3, but...man...I had to take a break at Kowloon. It’s just not a great experience by any metric.

You could have easily gotten the idea the Kyle and Rogelio (of the Horde) were something of an item from watching the way the characters interacted in the show’s background. Read more

Cue the angry nerds incensed over the fact that this list isn’t at least 25% Marvel, 25% DC, and 25% what passes for ‘indie’ when you’re upset that half the list isn’t mainstream as fuck...so let’s just say...I dunno...Image. Read more
