Every year in California, the Electronic Entertainment Expo becomes that milestone that video game fans look forward too to indicate that summer finally begins. This year was the year that dreams did come true to many fans across the globe, even dreams that us podcast hosts have been waiting for many years.
We really don’t need a time code for this episode, since we stay true to staying on topic on what happened at E3 this year. June 16th, 2015 will mark a milestone date for both Jonn and Zeonic as the day Shenmue 3 was announced that launched a hugely successful Kickstarter that even crashed Kickstarter themselves. This also gets us into talking about dreams coming true for Kingdom Hearts 3, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, The Last Guardian, and much more. If you can’t tell already, (but let’s break it down for you again), that this podcast totally called out the idea of Shenmue coming to Kickstarter when we were talking with Lisle Wilkerson last year, so we are total trend setters of the gaming industry without anyone really knowing it.
This also gets us into discussing what happened during the other conferences (and how the HoloLens is just Strange Days tech come to life), the breakdown of the Nintendo World Championship 2015, Conkers Bad Fur Day talk, latest with Chris Chan and much more. Also, Josh gives his big plug for his personal blog at Cartoon Historian, where he spends a lot of time researching and writing about early American television animation that is largely forgotten about, and why you should care. He is basically becoming the next generation of Fred Patton without even knowing it.
OP – When Shenmue comes your way, you dream on!!!
ED – These Shenmue dreams go on as I close my eyes…
This show has:
That was how I felt in that moment too…
So for anyone wanting to know what this game is about, let these drunken Irish developers tell you all about it…
Big question, does this game still hold up almost 2 decades later?

Personally, I think it’s probably been the most exciting E3 in a while. I’m really looking forward to Shenmue, The Last Guardian, Fallout 4, and the new Doom game.
By the time November comes I’ll probably have to upgrade my PC, because really I can play most of this generation’s games on there. I still haven’t bought a next gen console yet and I probably won’t anytime soon unless I get a good reason to.
Speaking of FFVII, I actually started playing that for the first time the other day because it was on sale on Steam. It’s pretty fun so far.

I still need to sit down and go through all of FF7 eventually.
My PC should be fine for a while, but when Shenmue 3 comes out it shouldn’t take much, im hoping to upgrade it.
