Shenmue Saturn

I love the Dreamcast version of Shenmue, but hot dang the Saturn version looked good! I'd easily put it on par with Playstation graphics, and all the footage we've seen was on a STOCK Saturn... it's amazing that the Saturn had THAT much pent up power! What features do you guys think would have been missing or would have been in the Saturn version?

I've always been curious why people want to play the Saturn version when we have the Dreamcast version. You think it would be different?

More than anything the reason i'd want to play it is because of how peculiar it'd be. Shenmue felt right at home on the Dreamcast but it'd be interesting to see what it would have accomplished for the Saturn.

True. I wouldn't NOT play it, lol. I'd be curious to see what the differences are.

I'd probably play the hell out of it if I was able... though I wouldn't exactly be eager for a release. :P

Want to have the chance to play it, because Art. Art is: something never happened before, even in a different form. You could take a masterpiece, say a painting, say one of Picasso's, and repaint it with a different style, method, procedure. You have to witness that, too. Why? Indeed, how is it different than the other? That's interesting! What new (in the same meaning of different) has to offer? I want to be surprised! Psychologically you are inclined to like an end work that comes from a more limited source. A baby can lift up a mountain! Wow, this must be something special, I want to see it! I have made the same painthing in two different versions; one with pastelli colours and the other with metallic colors. I painted Ryo's face using sand. I painted Ryo's face on a rock. That's Art. To represent something, in a form, or in a different form.

You saw that Shenmue HD remaster? Why would you want to play it when we have the Dreamcast versions? Yes, but the Saturn version is more limited than Dreamcast's, and, that Shenmue HD remaster (at least in terms of graphics) looks more superior than Dreamcast's. Indeed. The crucial point is not the level. The point is, indeed, the different approach. That's art. You and me may capture on a photograph the same thing. However, both of us and as it is represented on our photos, we have captured the same thing with different end results. It is how you have captured it, not what you have captured.

The different. That's Art.

I'd like to see if certain scenes were changed or different in some way. That would probably be my motivation for playing Shenmue Saturn. I've noticed for example that in Shenmue Saturn the Phoenix Mirror is kept in a secret passage in the Hazuki yard, whereas in the Dreamcast final released they swapped it for a hidden chamber in the Dojo. Maybe at the end of Saturn Shenmue 2 something different might have happened. Maybe Ryo and Shenhua would talk for a little longer, actually walk out of the cave and BOOM! Niao Sun! "The Story Goes On."

It'd be nice to tool around in the Saturn version, there likely was a a lot changed and it could clue us all in more on hidden story elements.
