Sega has released the second part of their ongoing documentary series about the history of their iconic franchise, Shenmue. It’s a great way for new players to be brought up to speed on the game’s universe and a great refresher for older fans who are eagerly anticipating the re-release. In this part, they’re going to talk about the game’s characters.

As someone who hasn’t been able to play the original games all I can say is this game cannot get here soon enough.

Shenmue I & II are coming to PC, Xbox One and PS4 later this month.

Spider-Man PS4 Launch Trailer August 14, 2018

We are less than a month away from the launch of the currently most anticipated PS4 exclusive game, Spider-Man. To celebrate, Sony, Insomniac and Marvel have released this incredible launch trailer. Seriously, how good is it? This looks like it could be the trailer for a new Spider-Man film! Enjoy.

I’m a little disappointed to see that no one is currently hosting this trailer in 4K, despite the fact that most Spider-Man PS4 trailers released since 2017 have been in 4K. I talked to Insomniac yesterday about that and they told me they expected their master video files to be in 4K but they weren’t sent to them in 4K, so the fact this video is HD only may be an error. People from the UK may notice this trailer is the same one that was shown in UK cinemas.

Spider-Man is coming September 7th, 2018 exclusively to the PlayStation 4.
