Can you people beleive that 2010 of all the years, is the one year were we’ve been doing lots of Shenmue related posts? Either way, it will a pleasure to see the Messiah once again, but what to think of Yu Suzuki’s approach to Shenmue as a social game? It’s like  not  Suzuki-san hasn’t had crazier ideas before, but to reach out to a more casual audience… Hmm, does it cheapen the brand or is this a likely test bed for better things to come? Only time will tell. Wait around for 72 hours and we’ll see how this goes…
