Ok thank you for the advice all. It turns out that I played the Route 2 day 3 times over bc I was hitting the quota and then playing Mario maker until the shift ended. I wasn't triggering the cutscene bc it happened at like 330 in the warehouse. I got punished by the game for being lazy on the job lol.

I really like how 1 had this cozy hometown feel to it where you know everyone and youíre kind of a badass and then 2 makes you feel like a fish out of water in the big city and you start to feel out of your depth.

Yeah everyone you meet is a scumbag trying to rip you off and I have no money and I had to pawn my virtua fighter toys to pay for one nights rent at a hotel. It's such a sick atmosphere so far and a cool tonal change

gotten into the habit of playing 1 day of shenmue 2 every morning, the days feel much longer than 1 bc Hong Kong is huge and dense and theres a lot more story happening every day. Love all the mind clearing taoist QTEs in this one where you have carry books back and forth and punch trees for IRL hours over the course of the game.

I accidentally hit the Pay Out button on the slot machines when I had 79 credits in it so I had I pick up every coin from the lower slot and put it back in the machine to keep playing by hitting square 79 times.

the more I play of kowloon the less I like it...this stuff kind of sucks. like the whole reason I came to Kowloon in the first place with Ren is because he's Dou Niu and the Yellow Heads sworn rival, and the two of us have hosed with Dou Niu and his girlfriend like 3 or 4 times so far, but now they don't care and I've been recruited because I won a bunch of street fights???

the real reason I was frustrated when i posted that is I couldn't believe they wanted me to make another $500 in kowloon, the entire time I was there I had $4 bc i couldnt find a job, I thought you HAD to gamble to make money, I didn't find the job site until literally Dawn of the Final Day when it didnt matter and I already spent an incredibly tense hour or two gambling on big or small to try and make 500.

lmfao spoiling since i know emmyOK is playing shenmue II for the first time too the yellowhead building assault had a lot of incredible moments ramping up to what i assumed would be a showdown with dou niu, loved all the chainsaw battles, kicking out mineshaft support beams in a residential building, the Ultimate "walking across a wooden plank" QTE etc. but the reveal of B5 containing a Amano looking ghost warrior cage battling people to death that you then had to go toe to toe with for 3 rounds was insanely badass.

Excited for the upcoming posts as you experience the end of Shenmue 2 and start 3. Playing 3 wonít have the same effect as if you had been waiting for it for over a decade, but itís very much a Shenmue game. It basically feels like no time passed and all that changed was the graphics. Itís pretty amazing in that regard. The fighting system is total rear end though, so Iíll just throw out the recommendation that you set the game to easy mode to mitigate frustration when you get to it.

There will also be money gated story progression points in 3. Thereís pretty easy ways to make sure you have enough money though. Iíll throw out my strat if you want it when you get to 3, if you donít want to waste tons of time again trying to scrounge up cash.
