Shenmue 3 game

Sony dropped many megatons at E3 2015, but few were as surprising as the announcement of a new Shenmue game for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Shenmue 3 is in the works, and we have some titillating details to share with you.

What’s the big fuss about Shenmue 3, you’re probably wondering? Well, the first game was an open world action-adventure video game that has been featured in several “greatest video games of all time” lists.

Considering that many critics hail both the original Shenmue and Shenmue 2 to be a masterpiece, praising their realism, interactive world and production values, we have the very high expectations for a new Shenmue on a console as powerful as the PS4. It had been one of the most requested games of the last 15 years or so.

We have dug up the following details about Shenmue 3, courtesy of Japan’s Famitsu video game magazine:

  • It is being developed by Japanese developer Neilo, and Yu Suzuki — the director of the first two Shenmue games — is leading the project.
  • Suzuki gathering other key members of the development team for the original game to work on Shenmue 3
  • Unreal Engine 4 will likely be used because its colors fit the color of the world Suzuki envisions for the Shenmue series
  • While Shenmue 2 had a bigger game world than the original Shenmue, Shenmue 3 will have a smaller map in order to deliver a much more detailed and lively world. Suzuki is clearly a strong believer of the old adage quality of quantity, and so are we
  • Shenmue 3’s story will start directly after the events of Shenmue 2 and will see the return of several familiar characters. That makes the game a direct sequel, and not a spin-off, side story, remake or reboot
  • Shenmue 3 will release by the end of 2017, giving you more than enough time to get caught up with the first two games

When Suzuki set out to make Shenmue 3 a reality, he crowd-funded the project via Kickstarter, setting a goal of $2 million USD. That goal was reached in less than 24 hours, making it the fastest Kickstarter project ever to hit both a million and 2 million dollars.

Are you would enough to remember the first two Shenmue games? Were you one of the thousands of fans who crowd-funded Shenmue? If so, share your excitement in the comments below.

Xbox One S Actually More Powerful Than Regular Xbox One

Published

Xbox One S and original

When Microsoft revealed the slim Xbox One S at E3 2016, we were led to believe its only noteworthy selling points were its significantly smaller size and more appealing design. However, as it turns out, it is also more powerful than the regular Xbox One.

Yes, the console also supports 4K media playback and boasts a UHD Blu-ray player, but we are little astonished to find out it actually plays regular Xbox One games better.

In an interview with Polygon, Rod Fergusson, head of Gears of War 4 developer The Coalition, said the new Gears benefits from some of the Xbox One S’ increased power.

Apparently, the updated console features increased GPU and CPU “raw” power that allows games to dynamically scale resolution in both single-player and multiplayer and maintain frame-rate targets for each.

The team behind Gears of War 4 was able to use the extra power to reduce the frequency of frame-rate and resolution penalties in demanding spots.

The Xbox One S’ high dynamic range (HDR) offers a wider colour range, helping with some visuals improvements like surface detail on metal and armour.

It’s odd that Microsoft didn’t say anything about the One S having more power than the regular Xbox One, even if it isn’t a huge increase. Maybe they didn’t want to shift any focus away from the beast that is the Xbox One Scorpio…

Are you more likely to buy an Xbox One S now?
