Does /v/ like this newest virtual trip to Japan?
>>
I enjoyed it, but I hope 6 doesn't force me to play 5-6 characters again.

Zero had it right. 2-3 characters is more than enough.

Also I really dislike that they went back to the blind leveling up from the previous games when they had it perfected in 4.

Ishin and Zero's sphere grid rip-off is shit too.


I hope 6 also fixes this.
>>
>>324198216
Haven't finished 5 yet but I think the Haruka part is a bit unnecessary
>>
>>324198216
5 has only 3 real characers.
Haruka is extremely short and more of a big glorified minigame.
>>
Riichi
White Dragon
Dora 7
9 Senpai Baiman

How the fuck did this only give me 16000 points?
>>
>>324198802
Plotwise, the only links she has to the main story is Park and her show being used by Kurosawa. But gameplay-wise, i think it was interesting nonetheless.
>>
>>324199195
Haruka is there purely for fanservice
>>
>>324199552
Meant to reply to >>324199485
>>
>>324199195
You mean 4.

Also, why did they made such a complicated scheme to get Saejima out of jail? They involve the ministry of Justice of whatever only so the warden would suspect this and let him escape? Why not just release on parole like the plan?
>>
>>324199485
Her concert and dance battles would benefit a lot with a more complex system, they aren't very different from Karaoke and they're actually easier
Since she stops being an idol by the end i hope she gets a combat gameplay in 6, she'll be 20 after all
>>
>>324197984
Yes
Not as good as 3 or 4 tho desu
>>
>>324199684
I don't think the series would ever do that to Haruka, or even have a female fighter as a player character. Kaoru kicked ass though
>>
>>324197984
Yeah. Enjoyed it far more than the previous 2 games.
>>
>>324199867
She's been kidnapped 5 or 6 times, she has plenty of justification to learn some self defense
having an playable legal Haruka however would mean she could go to Stardust and that would be weird
>>
>>324199195
>3 real characers


Well if you're gonna consider Haruka and Akiyama combined, that's 4.

Still too many to be FORCED to play. I don't like this fad with these games.

Improve the enemy AI and variety before this shit.
>>
>>324200025
>Implying she'd go to Stardust when she loves Kiryu
>>
Why is Kurosawa such a tard? Why not bring more bullets? Why not shoot all of them? Why not use Daigo's gun? Why not use the other dude's gun? Why say he had something planned for Haruka? Why use Baba and only Baba for you plan? Why with each entry ever since 3 i have to fill in holes with my imagination?
>>
>>324200118
>Implying Kiryu didn't go to Jewel when he loved Yumi
>>
>>324200179
That has nothing to do with Haruka. She only loves Kiryu and no one else.
>>
>>324200059
If they at least would switch characters every now and then, instead of force one through a whole chapter. Would also alleviate Saejima chapter syndrome.

>Have you done all her side-story shit?
Yes.

YOU can stare at her breasts, as in you, the player. I don't even know why you're making her out to be a lesbian. Same thing with Kiryu. You control him and make him go to hostess clubs.
>>
>>324200664
>YOU can stare at her breasts, as in you, the player.
That option however is disabled if you plaly as Kiryu against Haruka
>>
Sucks you can't go to other towns with characters that are not from there. I wanted to relive Yakuza 2
>>
>>324200378

It was a breeze with Saejima and Kiryu, but for Shinada I used stun weapons, and with Akiyama I used guns.
>>
>>324200489
5 => 4 > 2 > Gunrhein > 3 > 1

I've never played these games before but with the upcoming remake of the first Yakuza and the prequel coming I thought I would give them a try since story-wise they take place in the beginning. Would that be a good way to enter the series or does the story even matter?
>>
>>324200378
Zap Gun. Bring at least three. Kill Sousuke and then fight the old man properly. Assuming you're playing as Shinada and Akiyama anyway, Kiryu can Komaki Drop his way through the fight provided you get the timing right while they both try to buttfuck you, Saejima just needs a full heat bar to tank their attacks, it's a joke for him.

You can but only in Premium Adventure. Which has no carryover from story mode, either in this or every subsequent game in the series.
>>
>>324200952
I don't know much about 0's story but it's obvious that the remake of 1 is borrowing a lot from 0 both in story and gameplay, so 0 + 1 Remake should be a good starting point
Though that'll still take a while
>>
>>324201138
Really? Maybe i tried in the regular game then, because taxis were only giving me one extra destination. Anyways, that's cool

Well he said Kazuma could share that information with whoever he wanted
>>
>>324202079
He said Kiryu should tell his friends to just come by for breakthrough training, aside form the regular homeless guys in the Dojo I doubt Komaki gets many visitors. Never mind how Haruka knew to come when the only point in the story when you can do her training is before she's reunited with Kiryu.

Damn, I really wish we could play as a female fighter. It could even be Kaoru! She's clearly fit for combat and maybe would use a variation of Tanimura's style. Although I like rhythm games, I find Haruka's part boring. I mean, she's too soft. She gets "bullied" by those T-set girls and does nothing. This shit irritates me.


Anyway, guess they'll never release Ishin/Kenzan outside of Japan. I can't see why. ;_;

At least it doesn't look as silly as in 4

Not enough budget. They only have 90% voiced story events from 5 onwards, 3 and 4 only have like two voiced events between them, the rest is just silent or cutscenes.

Too expensive. I dunno, i like the Jap voices, makes it feel more like an actual Yakuza movie. I also think it's better than many series that force a dub and won't give you the original audio, as weeb as that sounds.

And man, speaking of Yakuza movies, won't Takeshi Kitano feel weird on the next game for the Japs? Isn't he associated more with comedies than with crime drama in Japan?

>Isn't he associated more with comedies than with crime drama in Japan?

He's literally the second greatest Yakuza actor to ever live, the only man who can top him was Bunta Suguwara. Half his own films star him as some low ranking Yakuza soldier.

>>324204361
He started off as a comedian, that's how he became a media personality in the first place and got the Beat Takeshi moniker. Then he directed and starred in Violent Cop, and here he is today.

Takeshi's castle man! Also a plethora of comedy movies.

Handshake aren't that weird, we have similar things with celebrities in the west. Hostess and idols? That's just insane in my opinion.

Everything about idols feels so fake, and at least in Yakuza, it's presented as almost the soul of Japanese youth, people that give meaning to dream and shit, but it's so fucking fake holy shiiiit. Also Hostess, there are prostitutes, and they're probably cheaper too, so why hostess

These random encounters are awful. There's no context anymore. I liked when in the previous games they at least had a (stupid) reason to fight.

Why didn't you protect her yume?

Because she's dumb.

Because she shit talked Kiryu

This is too sad bros. He's really dead this time.
>>
>>324216134
Her plan was just as crazy as Majima
>>
>>324216448
Because Haruka is a fucking bad ass.

Why does Majima keep getting less crazy and more mellow?
>suddenly he's a nice guy and mellow around Saejima in 4
>5 he was married to some lesbo and got mad when she aborted his kid
Is he a huge pussy in 0?
>>
That guy in the back looks kind of familiar...
>>
>>324216612
We already know we play as him in 6
>>
>>324216875
He's getting older.
We're all getting older.
Before you know he'll be dead, and so will Kiryu.
Then young ones will take their place.
Life goes on.

It was implied after the take that the director is leaving to jerk off to the footage.

>>324217103
That's literally the exact same character model.

Except more than 10 years younger.

If I want to get into this series can I start with Yakuza 3?

Nah, looks too young.
>>
>>324217259
No
>>
>>324217342

You won't like it. It starts really slow.

Emulate one and two, or if you can't for some retarded reason, start with 4.
>>
>>324217259
No one's stopping you, but 4 is a better starting point
>>
>>324217259
Yes. 4 might be better though, it's a better game over all.
>>
>>324216875
0 is pre crazy and he goes around challenging people to fights at the most inconvenient of times, still pretty crazy to me
>>
>>324217391
>>324217390
My PC cant handle emulation, so I was going to start at Yakuza 3 since it had the recap (unless im mistaking it for 4)
>>
>>324217379
Does 1 and 2 even emulate well?
>>
>>324217103
>>324217280

It's just a different model, but it's him. Same VA and everything. They just made him look extra fucked up in 5 because he was insanely stressed.
>>
>>324217547
Both have, but 3 starts immediatly after 2 and the recaps doesn't go into the fine details, there's also too much reference in the side quests to the previous games side quests and all
Yakuza 4 is pretty much a new start with new characters and less references and all
Until you get to play as Kiryu that is where thigns immediatly gets familiar
>>
>>324217630

Yes. They both emulate perfectly fine.
>>
>>324217547
4 has recap videos as well. 4 introduces new characters though and is a more stand-alone story than 3. It's also better gameplay-wise, but once you play 4 and 5 you should do yourself a favor and go back and play 1-3.

>>324217630
They're a pain in the ass to set up properly, and even when you get them going you have to deal with lines through the screen and ghosting a lot.
>>
>>324217103
>>324217280
He still looks pretty fucking old. If he's not Kiryu then at most a slightly younger brother.
>>
>>324203056
he still loves yumi
>>
>>324217795
Can you post your settings? I've never gotten them to emulate well. Always end up with various graphical oddities that ruin the experience no matter what I change.
>>
>>324217686
But he looks too younger. Isn't he in his 50's?
>>
>>324217906
If you mean the glow in the right side and the almost invisible line cutting the center then there's no work around that
>>
>>324217946
hed be like 48 in 2016, i think he was born in '68
still though, no gray hairs or wrinkles after a lifetime of fighting and the stress of protecting the tojo clan, friends, and getting seriously injured several times is amazing
>>
>>324218095
That's Komaki style for you
>>
>>324217797
i wish i could make mine not look like this
>>
>>324201138
>You can but only in Premium Adventure

Weird, I'm in PA and I can't go to different cities.
>>
Is Kiryu even full Japanese? He looks like a haafu
>>
>>324217951
Fuck it I'll just play in software mode and deal with it. Or give in and order the HD version.
>>
>>324218297
Who even knows, he's an orphan whose actual parents died in a Yakuza killing. They might have been some bigwig politician and his mistress for all we know
>>
>>324218297

Isn't he half Korean?
>>
>>324218453
didnt kazama kill his parents?
i thought he said it at the end of 1
>>
>>324218297

They're pretty inconsistent about his looks. He almost looked like a completely different person in Yakuza 1 and 2.
>>
>>324218095
But still, why make him look a lot younger in this new game? In 5 he really looks like someone who had/has a pretty fucked up life, and that those experiences affected his appearance, while in 6 he looks like a young guy.
>>
>>324218553
Yeah, but Kazama never said what his actual parents did. So they could've been anyone who pissed off the Tojo.
>>
>>324218662
i feel like they are afraid to make him aged
like the way they got rid of kaoru since they didnt know how to deal with a love interest for kiryu after the old writer left

i thought kiryu and majimas voices fit well

How do you do Hell's floor in 4 and 5?

Since the heat system on bosses was changed in 4 I never saw it other than 3.

Hell, the headbutt that was a boss finisher in 3 is a heat action for all in 5.
>>
>>324223272
It's not in 4 i believe, in 5 it's in a level up for Shinada on enemies that are getting up
Headbutt is also on 4 but only Kiryu had it, Saejima got it on 5

Great Boss fights too.

I don't see anything wrong with that. It's THE japan simulator after all. Plus it's super stupid to see subtitles "Shigeki!" when Saejima screaming "Baba-chaaaan~!"

Story-wise, is the Yakuza series any good? I absolutely love the setting, but I'm not really sure if it's worth sitting through.
>>
>>324233086
1-2 have great stories
3-4 are shit, 5 is meh
i hear 0 is actually decent but i cant read nip that well
it seems pretty cool from what i could understand
>>
>>324233086
It's legitimately fantastic at its best and really dumb in a fun way at its worst. Hell of a ride with lots of hype moments through it all though.
>>
>>324232942
its a host that says that, made me laugh first time i encountered it
>>
>>324233086
It's alright.

1 has a pretty decent story. 2's is way better.

3 is..kinda slow paced. And 4 has some "Wait huh?" moments. 5 is a bit better but it still has said moments.
>>
>>324233086
You will enjoy the ride no matter how dumb it gets, that's the only way I can describe the story
>>
>>324233086
Story is soap-opera most of the time, even when it was pretty good.
Y1 and 2 had nice stories, cause they were written by an actual novelist.
Yakuza 3 was a mess.
Yakuza 4 was all over the place, but I liked it.
Yakuza 5 upped the scale and stakes, but in the end it wasn't really good. And ending was abrupt.

But characters, man. The main reason I love Yakuzas (besides the ability to punch punks in the face) are the characters. They are charming, flawed, really charismatic guys that you can't help but love.

Give it a try.
