Shenmue II: My Part Time Gambling Job & My New Companion

I didn’t mind going to work in Shenmue II’s world because work was actually really entertaining (gambling, arm wrestling, lifting up crates, and fighting.)   I had to come up with HK $500 in order to proceed in the game. The best part, the NPCs complimented me on my skills. Hey, I can always take the compliment for my gambling skills even though in real life I hate it with a passion. I know it’s pathetic of me to confess, this game allows me to walk in a guy’s shoes. I am feeling so macho lately.   The game developer sure knows how to make those little small achievements feel rewarding.  When Ryo beat his opponent, he smiles. When he smiles, I smile too.

My adventure continues onto Kowloon after I was able to chase after Ren. Yep, I had to pay him $500! The section of the game is fun–as I enjoy pressing buttons quickly. But there are more to come, and it gets more intense further into the game.  And still, I have yet to meet the mysterious girl from the cover! In time, we shall meet, hehe.

I am stuck trying to make some money (gambling) so I can participate in fighting tournament. This is the part where I seriously need to learn my moves instead of just spamming buttons.  For each fight, I have to bet money to participate!  I need a lot of preparation and practice.

So far I love the flow of the game. Normally, I would try to bypass gambling in games, but everything in this game seems to have a purpose. It’s really impressive. I even want to plan a vacation to China one day! Maybe I should seriously consider getting a boyfriend, so he can escort me like a princess. Hehe I am just kidding! I will invite anyone wants to go on a trip with me. That would be fun. The more the merrier!

Now I wait for the weekend to come, so I can continue on my adventure. Until next time, take care.
