Is it time for the nightly Yakuza thread? I'm tempted to make a /vg/ thread but I'm sure it end horribly
>>

Not enough shit to talk about to warrant a /vg/ thread. Don't bother. Every general eventually turns to shit

Isshin is really good too but I wish hand-to-hand wasn't awful

I got Yakuza 3 and 4 for £12. Did I do good?

Is it true that 4 uses a lot of the same assets from 3?

I'm liking 3 at the moment but I don't feel compelled to do the side missions in Tokyo

I've been really interested in checking this series out. Some friends have told me that it has some elements in common with Shenmue, which sounds like enough to sell me just by itself.
From what I gather, most of the series is in Japanese, but the first game is dub-only? And supposedly a pretty bad dub, at that. Is it difficult to get through?
>>
>>275814707
Is the digital version different from the box version?
>>
Before people start asking about emulating it again.

>>275815393
First game is dub only, yes, and it's a pretty bad dub. But thankfully it's also the shortest in the series, and has the least amount of voice acting anyway, so it makes it bearable. Mark Hamill is decent as Majima though, and Kazuma's voice isn't too bad. Everyone else is shit though. And yes it's very much like Shenmue.

Apparently, if you use a custom 16:9 resolution, the lines don't appear. Can you confirm that?
>>
>>275816482
Yeah, I have no lines and I use exactly >>275815752 setup. But if you use DX11 you'll get all sorts of other issues, especially horrible ghosting, most likely. You can try it yourself though.

Are you me? I haven't tried either yet though.

Did you buy them new? I couldn't find a reasonably priced copy of 3 new.

My PC isn't powerful enough for emulating PS2, I have a console but not here so I was just asking out of curiosity.

>>275817595
They just added 4 and Dead Souls to PSN last week with the Yakuza 5 announcement. No 3 for some retarded reason, but it's SEGA so not really surprising.
>>
>>275814707
Cant wait for 5 man

>>275817316
Just start with whatever you can get; ignore the people who absolutely insist that you have to play the series in chronological order. If you like the series, you'll get around to playing all of them eventually, anyway, so it really doesn't matter either way.

So anyone got any good settings for Yakuza 2? I'm trying to get PCSX2 set up for Yakuza 2 after getting the first game running great with >>275815752 settings.

No luck on 5 so far though, all the cutscenes are incredibly blurry. Or this happens if I change too much
>>
>>275814707
The only thing they lost is character progression feel. In Yakuza 3 you really felt like building Kiryu's skills through entire game. You find ancient scrolls, learning moves from teachers or your old sensei and shit like that. In Y4 it's more like "level up - unlock move" which is a little disspointing.

4 recently got put on PSN. Actually when 5 was announced for localization.

Dead Souls is on PSN too.

Not difficult to get at all. Here's some copypasta.

It's completely up to you. All the games have menu options to recap each game, and while they're quite in-depth, we both know there's nothing like playing the actual games. It's highly recommended you play them in chronological order to truly fall in love with Yakuza.

The combat in the first game can put a lot of people off due to how clunky it is. If you're willing to give it a go, don't do full 4-hit combos too much when surrounded, just do 2-3 hits then back off. Makes combat a lot easier when you're not just punching thin air, then getting punched in the back of the head. I say this because I've heard these complaints, and seen a few people on Youtube do it, and complain. Also grabbing can be a bit of a pain as you can easily miss your mark and be left open to attack.

A lot of people agree the second in the best of the franchise, and the combat is less clunky with lock-on improved. BUT of course if you're willing to start with the PS2 games, go with the first obviously. I find the first two games emulate well even on toasters. Also, the move from PS2 to next gen is quite breathtaking as the city comes to life so to speak.

In the end it doesn't really matter all that much as the recaps in 3 and 4 are really well done. People have started with the PS3 games and fallen in love, just to go back to playing the PS2 entries (dissapointed that they didn't start with them). Just have fun and thanks for supporting the series.
>>
>>275817983
>ignore the people who absolutely insist that you have to play the series in chronological order

It's a good idea to do so. But ultimately if the person wants to start at 3, that's a sale (unless it's pre-owned) so whatever.
>>
>>275818880
Well there are still things like Revelations and the Master to get a bit of that, but I do see what you mean. On the other hand, you're dealing with 4 characters instead of just 1, so there's only so in-depth you can make the progression for each guy.
>>
>>275818880


This is why you don't start with 4. Kiyru basically has everything already. He's already OP as fuck from the start.

Alright I give up on Yakuza 2. Can't fix these blurry as fuck cutscenes. Just going to watch a playthrough instead I guess.
>>
>>275824637
But all the way in Q3? Its so far away, Sega/Sony better not cut shit out of the game.
>>
>>275825262

I'm hoping because of how far away it is, they don't pull a Yakuza 3.

>tfw she'll probably be 19-20 by the time Yakuza 6 releases
>>
>>275825262
>>275826065
They'll probably only cut the quiz game as usual.
Which is still a shame because it's a big chunk of Haruka's playthrough. Maybe they could dumb it down and add some different questions westerners would know.
>>
>>275826128
I think she looks cutest in Yakuza 4 and Dead Souls, and in that cutscene in 5 on the beach where she's 14/15. She looks retarded at 16. Her lips are too big for her head.
>>
What happened to the corrupt cop in 4? He's easily the worst character so I'm assuming he got killed off?
>>
>>275826379
Also Akiyama has a quiz thing for a sidequest where a girl he meets wants to be an idol.

I hope they don't remove racing and hunting etc.

He dies. It's really fucking obvious he dies.

>>275826562
They really moe-fied her in 5. I don't actually mind the change in her looks (as her newer design does make her look a lot more like her mother now) but I did mind how she went from having a "family comes first" mentality to not giving a shit and wanting be famous and rich and cute and shit. It's like she went backwards in development in 5 and at the end of the game she just went back to square one.

Then grab or counter them. Or use objects.

Keep at it. I remember going damn near insane fighting Wesker and his boys on EX-Hard, but I just used items and grabbed the lackies, while just doing 2-3 hit combos and breaking away.

Is the cop kid coming back for Yakuza 5?
The contract with the actor probably ran out.
I'll miss him.

>>275829000
Might be cool. Though, I don't recognize any of them unfortunately.

>>275829245

No thankfully. Couldn't stand him.

Shinada is a much better character.
>>
>>275829824
I loved his fighting style tho.
but i think hes too busy with movies and dramas to come back.

his story was dope too.

Yakuza is so well crafted.
