While most people are busy thinking about Spider-Man and a new Destiny 2 expansion this week, some of us are still hopelessly obsessed with Shenmue thanks to its recent remaster. If you're still thinking about tracking down sailors and playing games of Lucky Hit, then we have just the show for you.

The latest episode of The Eurogamer Podcast sees myself and fellow Shenmue obsessive Martin Robinson try our upmost to brush off the nostalgia and see how well Shenmue actually holds up today - as well as some thoughts on what the long-awaited third instalment will be like.

Interested in more Shenmue? Oli's lovely take on Shenmue as a first-time player is well worth a read, as well as John Linneman's tech analysis of the remaster and Martin's account of travelling to Yokosuka in an attempt to retrace the steps of the game.

We hope you enjoy the show! If you missed it, our first returning episode was on Chris Tapsell's Football Manager piece, and we plan to release new episodes every other Thursday through SoundCloud, iTunes and other reputable podcast services.

See you in a fortnight!
