CHINESE IN REVERSE?!?! – Shenmue | Part 4

No wonder I couldn’t read the letter to my father, it’s Chinese in Reverse!!

Welcome to a FULL playthrough of Sega’s greatest game and indeed possibly the best game ever made, a timeless classic from the Dreamcast, Shenmue.

After roughing up Charlie in that tattoo parlor last time, we’ve agreed to meet him at 3pm today where he’s gonna arrange a meeting for us with the cartel. At home Fuku-San questions us about the letter in Chinese that came for our father.

On the way to Dobuita we help a little boy who’s had his ball taken off him by Charlie and his gang. After beating them up and kicking a ball in Charlie’s face it’s off to Dobuita to see if anyone can translate the letter for us, but before we start that hunt we head to Bunkado Antiques and buy all the move scrolls we can. Tao-San at the Ajiichi restaurant, suggests I speak to his delivery boy who sends us to the Russiya China Shop to help translate my letter.

Once translated, the letter leads us to contact someone called Master Chen. All we have is a phone number so we give it a call and find out it’s for a warehouse number 8, but where’s that? After checking the area code in the phone book we find out it’s in the Amihama area. A quick chat with Tom at the hotdog stand reveals that it’s down at the docks and we’re gonna have to catch a bus to get down there.

Volunteer writer, poor mans excuse for a grown up, and certified panther rider... I'm told I have far too many consoles that i'm convinced come to life and have endless series comedy capers when the house is empty. Sort of like Toy Story, but really poorly written and every character is voiced by Jai Courtney... a bit like that...
