After going through Yakuza 3, I started on Yakuza 4. Now I'm on chapter 2 and damn, do they keep upping the badass level of the characters all throughout the end?
I didn't think anyone could compete with Kiryu, but here comes Saejima to fuck shit up.
>play almost any other open world game
>get lost in the world for about ten hours and then stop playing since I feel burnt out
>play a yakuza game
>get almost 100 hours if not more and don't regret a second
why are these games so special
Also I'm playing 5 and any time this comes up it just hits me hard for some reason.
At this point Kiryu could literally travel to the moon and set up a little moon colony with Haruka and the sunshine kids and he'd still be dragged back into the Yakuza world somehow.
maybe that'll be the plot for yakuza 6
>shinji revealed to have survived his gunshot wound, has his face altered to look like kiryu, commissions the tattooist to give him the same tattoo
>final boss is an unwinnable fight against kiryu who was called in by daigo because you've gone too far
I played dead souls and got to kiryu's part.
The game was shitty enough with the framerate and odd controls but since I love Yakuza I tried to play through. Then I get to the flying fuckasaurous zombie and my QT army lady says "Use a sniper rifle" when i was never given one at the game.
That point pissed me off to quit, I know I could have bought one but still.
God Kiryu really despressed me in 5. Fuck Mrs Park for guilt tripping Kiryu to leave the orphanage just for her YUME bullshit.
Also Kiryu's boss mentions Kiryu got beaten up by thugs when he tried to help his boss when he arrived in fuckuda 6 months befor the game. Kiryu getting beat up? WTF
>partway through akiyama's chapter
>see kamiyama works, decide to dump some money into it just because and invest whatever it's asking for item-wise
>same thing only I'm using them religiously now because he's a weapons guy
>some items say "you need to invest [thing you got in kiryu's chapter and sold off because you didn't think you'd have any use for them] to see this"
well I fucked up
>Ishin has the best fucking combat in the series with the gun/sword form and is easily one of the best fucking games on the PS4
>Sega decided to be complete fucking retards about localization and wasted a perfect opportunity to get some attention towards the series with the PS4's library being fucking empty for over a year since launch
>Instead they shit out Sonic fucking Boom
retry it ! it crashed on the PS3 emulating PS2 and a friend had it crashing on his ps2. After a few tries it works. Dont know why, it's game related.
3 was good
4 was better
5 is awesome
Serious,y, all the stuff in 5 like the different cities, side-missions (in addition to the sub-missions), Haruka's part, etc. So much variety and fun.
Also most of the characters are really likeable.
Can't wait for 0 and 6
0 isn't as good as 5 though imo. It does run really good on PS4. I just don't like the different fighting styles that much. Ishin did it good because it had different weapons but in the regular Yakuza games I wouldn't miss it at all.
I've only had it crash when you've got to save Haruka from the Triad. Better to just save with the emulator around the parts you are crashing.
Albeit, you might not have the right specs for running the game or a bad version of the game.
He's confirmed strongest guy in the series.
He's stronger than Kiryu, probably stronger than Ryuji.
Kiryu however is the best well-rounded fighter overall, but Saejima can still fight him to a draw.
Rush style is the best. However Majima's street fighting style and his Mad Dog style are shit.
>implying japs would want their nippon banzai action hero to settle down with some korean bitch cop instead of continue to bang hostesses and be a dad to Haruka and the orphans
the guys who had it crashing on ps2 had to rewatch the funeral video each time he tried but it finally worked :/
Nope you are wrong.
I fought Kiryu as sajima in 4. Of course I won but with little health.
Then I kicked sajimas ass in 5 with most of my health.
KIRYU IS BEST!
Also why does Ryuji look 60 in Dead Souls? He cant be older than Kiryu.
Saejima has 5/5 strength.
Kiryu only has 4/5.
They are still equally matched with all of Kiryu's Komaki-style h4x.
>Saejima all fucked up from escape, no decent healing items
>Kiryu constantly going heat and red heat
>Saejima still manages to fight evenly
well, he's back from the dead you know.
In all honesty Sajima my second favorite fighter only because of his gorilla like punches.
I do prefer him looking like pic related however.
Why is 5 not in the HK store
Why is there no physical version
>that con girl who tricked you into drinking in the bar
ITS NOT FAIR WHY DID I TAKE THE DRINK WHY AM I SO NAIVE?
rubber bulletswas such fucking bullshit, it takes saejima's entire story, the guilt and respect for life aspect, and just shits all over it.
It legitimately makes me angry
HOLY SHIT KIRYU BEAT MY ASS IN 4 NIGGA DOESNT PLAY AROUND
Kiryu was also in Hawaiian shirt mode though, Which is when he's at his most held back.
I'm pretty sure they're both roughly equal levels of monster strength. Consider how physically handicapped Kiryu was during the entirety of 5's finale, that shit was bleeding almost non-stop
Well he still meant to kill those guys, and he still spent 25 years punishing himself for it. Whether he killed those guys or not is immaterial, he still intended to, and his time in prison still instilled him with that basic respect for life and maturity he was lacking in before. It just highlights how much of a soulless cunt Katsuragi is.
>Kiryu looks old and tired as fuck
>working as taxi driver
>wearing old man's clothes
>wearing sport clothes
>jumping on roofs
Some say she's still floating there to this day.
The one actual upside of rubber bullets is I watched the bit where he kills those eighteen guys and thought the way those guys reacted to getting shot was wrong, but I just put it down to Japan not knowing shit about guns. Knowing those are actually rubber bullets actually justifies that scene. It's still fucking retarded, especially when Munakata gave Arai a gun loaded with them hoping he would shoot him in the chest and not the far more obvious target of his face, but that part of it at least works.
Asian version has even harder to read Chinese squiggles on the screen. That's it. I heard the Asian version of 0 actually uses a famous Hong Kong actor for the likeness of Majima's final boss whereas the regular Japanese version doesn't, but that might be wrong.
>Don't own a PS4 cause poor
>"The PS3 version of Zero won't be localized"
>Get to Saejima's chapter
>That long-ass slow start
Jesus fucking Christ, when can I do anything by myself
Well the PS3 version is a terrible gimped port, so no real loss. 6 and Kiwami are coming out on the PS4 anyway, so there's at least three games you can buy to justify getting one. Four if you count Ishin.
Is there an easier way to win Shogi in 5 other than downloading a Shogi playing program and just following that, or just farming Give Up pieces from sea fishing attache cases? Do the challenge boards at Shoten count towards completion, or does it have to be an actual ranked match?
And that rumor is full of shit desu.
>All Yakuza games on PC starting from 0
>Despite no HD in west
>Despite the fact that they can't keep up with localisations at all
>Despite the fact that it's a series for Japs first and foremost
>Despite the fact that SEGA's PC releases are region locked so Japs can't buy
He was attempting murder twice. He'll sit behind bars for long now.
He fully intended to kill them, and thought he did. He shot all of them at point blank range. That takes a lot psychologically. I don't think he's "badass" because he did that, but I do think that there's little difference between the what he did and actually killing people. So he's still hardcore. He isn't any less of a murderer.
If someone stabbed you with a knife, fully intending to kill you, they wouldn't suddenly be a good person if it turned out to be a fake knife. They've still got the mindset of a killer.
Just want to say thank you to Yakuza /v/. You guys are awesome, help everyone and are big fans.
>inb4 jackie chan
0% chance of happening, but i'd kill for a jackie chan boss battle
