I just got past Kiryu's level cap, and I'm wonder about this block breaking attack. It says to press a button at the right time, but nothing's really happening whatever I press.
What's the deal?
Also having level caps and going back to blind leveling up was a really retarded idea. Especially providing the ability to remove the cap SO late in the game. You basically have to grind to hit 25 with every character. What the fuck were they thinking?
Great game though.

Elaborate please. Sounds like they changed up the level uping system from 4 radically.
1, 2, and 3 had blind leveling up systems. 4 had a great one where you could choose whatever you wanted freely. 5 goes back to the blind bullshit where you have minimal choice.
Also it caps you at level 20, until you fight the 2 Komakis to unlock at at the end of the fucking game.
Yakuza Ishin and Zero steal FFX's sphere grid system which blows my mind on how stupid it is.
The two komaki fight is so fucking stupid.
you need luck and a shitload of healing / heat potions. Younger Komaki constantly spams heat move that makes him invincible for extended periods. The main game was way too easy on hard but this is stupid artificial difficulty.
It's easy as fuck with Kiryu and Seajima.
Just kept Tiger Dropping with Kiryu, only had to use 2 Toughness Z's. Just tanks their shit with Seajima spamming attacks, had to use about 4.
With Shinada I just spanned the grab counter and cheated with a few strong weapons.
I tried not cheesing with Akiyama but it was fucking impossible, without his heat moves he's absolutely useless, so I just spammed guns.
Also agree the fight is stupid.
I've seen it in action but have no idea how to activate it consistently. Like randomly Kiryu's weak attacks will guard break.
Ishin's was a lot grindier. Both have portions that you need to unlock. Honestly I don't mind cause I like the feeling of building up to stronger skills but it also shows you what you're getting into which was the weakness of the older level up system
Yeah. I loved how you have the freedom to allocate points to whatever skill that fits your playstyle in 4. From the sound of it Ishin and Zero's grid system is more of a grind than 1 and 2 was.
Aside from money literally flying everywhere in 0, if you want to skip the grind it's really easy cause Kiryu has a CP skill(perks/equipment that you get from doing stuff) that lets him make a killing off of extortionists(the big tough guys who steal all your money), and you barely even have to fight them. Just bring overpowered weapons and spam heat actions after you let them steal your money
>Saejima is the most fun character to play despite being second worst in 4
>Akiyama's new moves are gimmicky and useless, no substory
W H Y
Also, I'm disappointed how bad Shinada's fighting style is. He's a great character but damn weapons are just not fun to use aside from occasional heat move.
Some skills were only available after reaching a certain level in 4, but you could still see what it was and best of all you could be methodical with your skillpoint allocation. You could plan it out in advance, prioritizing certain skills and buying others with some points saved up so you could immediately buy the upgraded version of that skill.
>Yakuza game introduces 2 cool "baddie" characters
>they're not killed off in the end
I'm actually impressed.
Shame Mirei bought it.
well he thought he kidnapped daigo so it's understandable - kiryu was just sick of everyone's shit
kiryu v watase felt really really forced, and watase is a complete pushoever - same as katsuya
actually so was fucking saejima
>dies in 4 tiger drops
I was following that poll from the beginning
the only consistent thing throughout the vote was Majima & Kiryu being 1st & 2nd
towards the end the voting numbers inflated by like 5k across the board and characters like Haruka and Kashiwagi were pushed out of the top 10 entirely and characters like Baba and Tanimura slid in out of nowhere, shit's weird
I remember Ryuji being top 5 at one point too
They really should've made Morinaga the final boss
feels like they just couldn't resist the oppurtunity to do one last big tweest
I'm working towards 100% completion but I can't for the life of me get one of the river fishes. It's the 5th one on the list. I think it's called "man face fish" or something in Japanese. I've tried every fucking river in the game. So frustrating.
You want the Silver Arowana. It's the rarest river fish in the game, don't be surprised if it takes a while to get one.
Make sure you do it at night, and wear that fishing charm Akiyama gets in one of his substories. Makes things a lot easier. A good luck text message also helps. River fishing is honestly much harder to complete than regular fishing, and much more luck based.
The one I mean is "Jinmengyo". I got all the other fishes already, but that one refuses to show up after LOTS of fishing, even in the places the guide mentions. Thanks for trying to help anyway.
>never understood why everyone hates big the cat so much since he's a pretty cool character and his levels are piss easy in Adventure
>playing yakuza 5
>doing shinada's training
>last one with the baseball guy is to catch a marlin at the wharf
>mfw after like two hours and finally doing it
I finally understand.
wtf I want to leave this shitty mountain
where are the save points
I dont care about this shitty bear, Saejima punched his fucking face in and he still roams this crappy mountain
The hunting side story sometimes disregard its own rules
>Don't run from bears! They will catch up to you!
And then some mission requires me to turn tail and dash to the village while angry Yama-Oroshi is chasing me (but he never catch up to me)
>Bear isn't something you can beat in fist fight, Okudera says
Except that Saejima did once with Yama-Oroshi, then another in Tsukimino, then he has to beat Yama-Oroshi by fist in the end anyway
I'm at level 25 with most of the characters, did all the master and if8 training and revelations, but in all of their training tabs in the abilities section there's still three ??? place holders. What am I supposed to do to unlock whatever these abilities are?
Funny thing is, we never get to see his actual fashion sense
>stranded in Okinawa, Kiryu gave Saejima his spare clothes
>stranded in Hokkaido, Okudera gave Saejima his spare clothes
And by sheer coincidence they're the same style; green jacket, black shirt, camo pants, and boots.
Majima was too busy teaching him about Hatune Miku and general vocaloid lore to be able to take him clothes shopping (during that one year Saejima decided to just frolic around in Kamurocho I guess?), evidently
>Bought the most expensive drink in hostess club
>Affection bar filled instantly
Lesson learned. Either talk your way to win women's heart slowly or just fork enough cash to make them swoon in an instant
