We promised and we delivered! However, we promised MONTHS ago and finally delivered when the novelty of hearing an "early" review is completly lost.
It's probably our shortest episode, sorry about that folks, but this is being recorded at an extremely busy and hectic time for both of us!
Shootin' The Breeze
Anyone remember Shenmue?
Just one of many games that made the Sega Dreamcast, the best gaming console ever, at least in my opinion.
Sega's Ryu Ga Gotoku, known overseas as "Yakuza" is the spiritual succesor to Shenmue, and an all around fantastic game. (Actually based on a popular novel series)
For anyone who might appreciate this, the infamous Takashi Miike (who directed the live action Koroshiya which was revied a few episodes back)
is directing the live action adaptation to Yakuza. Not only that, but the look of the characters is modelled after the fantastic computer game.
You can check out the official website for the film, here.
Here's a cool sign:
How on earth does one explain the inexplicable? We have no idea but it's sure amusing to watch us bumbling through. Satashi Kon can do no wrong, that's for sure and it's a fantastic film.
Also noteworthy is the wonderful soundtrack by Susumu Hirasawa.
Spoiler Discussion (Warning!)
We do discuss the story a bit more indepth here, so if you're the sort of person who doesn't want to know any spoilers before seeing a film, skip this segment.
It's a wrap
Hopefully we'll be back in full form for next week's show. Until then, take care my pretties!
