Reviews of Yakuza 4 and Dead Souls for comparison.
Just finished the story yesterday.
Graphics are dated since there's a Japanese-exclusive PS3 port.
I don't know why, but this episode really got me. Especially the part with the twirling baseball bat.
For some reason, ZP (and possibly the rest of the escapist) videos refuse to play for me. No matter what I do I just get their ~45 seconds of self-advertising.
And it happens on both my laptop, desktop, and phone.
Friendly reminder that this is one of the best games on the PS4 and one of the best games of both 2015 and 2017 and that you should all buy it.
These exist in the game.
What confuses me now is that all of a sudden the Yakuza games are starting to get the recognition they deserve but I wonder why this particular entry compared to the other Yakuza games.
Dunno, but I didn't know much about the Yakuza series until I stumbled upon this gif of Yakuza 0 which got me curious.
I don't have a PS3/PS4 which is a shame though. No idea if it even has an European release (probably does)
Also the likelyhood of a yakuza 2 remake is pretty high, though its likely to be radically different from kiwami if it uses the rgg6 engine
Anyone whos a fan of story rich kojima-esque japanese action games should pick up 0, at 60 dollars you are getting a helluva bang for your buck with over a hundred hours of story, sidequests, progression, and challenge arena modes
Also minigames are reallllly good
Tbh im just gonna keep shilling these games because i dont think theres any other series (yearly at that) that produces such fun, engrossing, unique, and passionate games of this caliber. Theres nothing cynical about these games despite the dark storylines and gritty action, theyre a breath of fresh air in a pretty stale market
I'm glad 'unrest' makes an appearance again in Yakuza 0.
ive wanted to play the series for god knows how long but them being near impossible to get for a good while bummed me out. but ill look into yakuza 0. atleast they seem to be on the track of remaking some of them
im a big fan of takeshi kitano's yakuza movies too so ive got hopes for these.
well yeah yakuza 0 is easy enough. im talking about the 5-6 other entries in the series which are far more difficult now. atleast some of them i think.
5 is digital only I think. 6 hasn't been released in the West yet.
oh damn well let me just go buy myself a PS2 and PS3 and then pay 180$ for 4 games + shipping
Its also likely there will be 3/4/5 hd ports on ps4 but im not holding my breath
If I can remember who said it, I'll find the tweet.
Drop hope of ishin getting localized, ive played a ton of it and barely any of it can connect with a western audience as well as it just being a spinoff making it lowpriority
That said, it has the best combat of the entire series imo
