While he has heard for years about the greatness of Shenmue, Maniac never owned a Dreamcast and was never able to play the original Sega Classic. Today, that issue has been rectified. Shenmue I & II was re-released today and can be purchased on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. To celebrate, Maniac played through the first hour of the first Shenmue blind with no guide and no guide.

We’re going to do this Let’s Play on the PlayStation 4 Pro in 1080p HD. The game was not augmented for 4K UHD or HDR so playing it on the Xbox One X or PS4 Pro should not make much of a difference. As usual, all gameplay is provided with full picture-in-picture video commentary.

Shenmue I & II is out now on the PS4 and Xbox One.

Arcades in the US have been getting a resurgence ever since getting combined with the adult food and bar experience provided by locations like Dave and Busters. While there’s currently only one location for the entire state I live in, my friends and I have had a blast there whenever we have visited. Now, Microsoft just released a next generation 4K arcade experience exclusively to Dave and Busters locations called Halo: Fireteam Raven.

How does a game like Halo: Fireteam Raven get made? How difficult it is to take a property best known as a console first person shooter and turn it into an arcade light gun game? Watch this behind the scenes look and see for yourselves.

Halo: Fireteam Raven is out now exclusively in Dave and Busters arcades.
