Really bummed it's a port and not a sequel, but if there are meaningful improvements, I'll grab the physical Vita release (if there is one).

I already know the answer to this question, so this is sort of rhetorical, but if a video game doesn't have anything in it that you actually play(a la visual novels) then simply checking out a Let's Play is essentially the same exact experience, no?

To me, this would be like reading a book over someone's shoulder.  They're turning the pages at their own rate and you're just kind of along for the ride.  Except also this book talks to you and maybe sometimes you want to hear the voice work and sometimes you just want to move along.  And usually there's at least a little interaction in terms of story branching, if not some puzzle solving ala Danganronpa (but at that point it's maybe debatable if it's still a VN).

Should I make my not so risky risky investment of the year - $60 to Shenmue 3 on the ps4 having never played the Shenmue games nor owning a ps4?

 

Bigger question - Ryo > Kazuma???

I can't imagine anyone playing Shenmue 1/2 for the first time in 2015 having a good experience, and I can't imagine anyone playing Shenmue 3 without a deep love of the first two.

 

I say this as someone with a deep love for the first two.

 

No way dude.  Wait for the retail collector's edition announcements. 

 
Do you really think this $30 mostly-digital game will have collector's editions?

So 13 pages of "I hope they have...."

I was just going to ask if there was any actual information in this thread.  I'm guessing not.

Kinda weird that:

 

1. It's a gift card and not just a credit on my account

and

2. That they already shipped it.

 

Whatev!  I miss Amazon, but GCU and these credits too good to pass up.
