    Wow. I just really got no words to what the hell I was watching just now. But I loled pretty hard. How the hell did mega64 get in touch with him. I'm really loving the publicity around yu suzuki, and it's awesome to see this side of him lol. Shenmue 3 :'(

    Why can't I get these things?

    I didn't find it funny.

  3. HA! Fantastic. I knew that's how it went down. Tony Soprano cameo was totally hinted at in the first Shenmue.

    He was reading off something made up for him but it was nice of Yu Suzuki to play along. The subs were pretty accurate. I'm impressed they got him to read their stuff. :)

    Gutted, I really thought this was goiong to be real. This story ending is too valuble to SEGA so they would never allow him to talk about it. Shame!

    I thought it could have been better. The best part is when he punches the trees. Why? Me no no.

    They should have just done a sketch, with Yu showing up. I have noticed that when devs show up in their videos, it isn't really funny but awkward.

  7. cube_b3 says:

    Well in this case it might not be him showing up but a random clip off him.

    Since he is speaking in Japanese, that few of us are fluent in. But it is possible he did do it.

    Its most assuredly not random. He's saying basically what's in the subtitles just with a little added slang and some mistakes like he says shotgun arm but the subtitles say machinegun or something.

    I wish I could get him to sign a copy of Afterburner or Outrun for me. He is one of the main reason I got into video games as a kid.

    ah great to see this in decent quality :)

    its really comical.

    and has anyone else noticed the exploding of shenmue related news and general talk? this is great guys

  10. upsidedown fuji says:

    Yeah totally crackdude. I hope this Shenmue talk keeps up and gets something accomplished!

  11. George says:

    Cube… there is a thing called subtitles. Plus Yu Suzuki knows English, he has spoken it in interviews.

  12. Yeah, the subtitles are basically what he is saying, キユービ。

  13. CrazyTails says:

    Oh wow guys. I don't know if anyone noticed, but cliff blezinski is actually in the video. Around 1:00 with the gunarm, you'll see him drumming :S

    What the hell he doin therE?
