Highlight of the Week: Actually, if it's been in your mouth...

Ryo Hazuki is probably better off taking the loss on this one

As listeners toTalkRadar UKwill know, this week I finished the original Shenmue from start to finish for the first time in around ten years. As our100 best games of all timefeature would suggest, it's still as magical and fresh as it was in 2000. But I was surprised how many characters I'd pretty much completely forgotten about. Master Chen, Gui Zhang... and of course, wonderfully Gollum-esque baddie Chai. It all came flooding back... which was when I remembered I was about to see this again:

Ryo keeps a pretty straight face, but I can only imagine the horror in his mind as his precious ticket goes into that decaying abyss otherwise known as Chai's mouth. Eeeew!

Is this your favourite moment from Shenmue? Let us know in the comments!

Things get awkward in small town America



It's QWOP - the game that lets you run like a drunk



Like looking through a man's eyes
