Episode 77 : Shenmue (Dreamcast / remakes)

We broke from our own set of guidelines for this one, we're looking at Shenmue in honor of the HD re-releases of Shenmue 1 and 2, and the probable upcoming 3rd game in the series in 2019 (maybe).   We dive into the first game in the saga of Ryo Hazuki, who is sent around Yokosuka, Japan to find information on black cars, Chinese people, and of course sailors, as he hunts down Lan Di to get revenge for his father's death.  Does this game hold up at all in 2018, or was a game that was pretty clunky by 1999 standards even moreso now?

We also answer a listener question on our favorite Halloween films, which kicks things off for the remainder of October as we celebrate #31DaysofHalloween across this podcast, Youtube channel, our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages... and also in our hearts?
