Default Anyone play Yakuza series?

August 4th, 2018, 16:05
Broke my teeth back on GTA3 which everyone seemed to love but I just got bored. Saints Row games, on the other hand, were great fun.

Save points ARE a horror but I can survive them if the game is good enough.

Lengthy cutscenes? That!? Have you ever played Xenosaga, @duerer?

Yup, those were epic indeed. Fortunately, Monolithsoft mastered their craft and the Xenoblade games are much better with their cutscene lengths (e.g. trimming down 40 min cutscenes to a mere 20 minutes, heh-heh) Ah, those Japanese…. gotta love'em!

I actually play GTA V with KB+M. Unless its aircraft then its KB+numpad. I can land a chopper anywhere.

But if you're talking about the 50 race wins you need to unlock all the engine upgrades, make your own map, make it short and make sure there's a wall in the middle of the road that they'll crash into and you'll avoid, make it motorcycles and use Akuma. You're welcome, newbie.

Yes, the bloody numpad.
I'm aware some people love being tortured. I'm not one of them and any future GTA garbage can rot for all I care, my money will go elsewhere. I'd rather spend a mortgage on scammy phonegames with lootboxes than buy another GTA.

I'm sorry but i i would prefer to read more about the thread's subject then this unrelated non-sense so in that fashion it is my problem (though as matters go it is rather minor). It would be nice if you had a tiny ounce of courtesy and could stick to the thread topic but i suppose that would be too much to expect from one such as yourself.

Having said that so far the reviews on Yakuza seem surprisingly positive so that is at least a positive.

Looks like Yakuza rolled out a patch today then rolled it right back in again.

How are they supposed to develop a plot with a mere 20 minutes!?

That link is not really… Detailed?
This one is IMO better:
https://steamcommunity.com/games/638…73287819294231
While our patch showed no issues in testing, it appears that Patch 1 is causing issues for some users who had no issues previously. Therefore, we are rolling back the patch while we continue to investigate.

Our apologies to all who are experiencing difficulties. We are investigating all issues raised here and will be back with more information soon.

Thank you,
SEGA Dev
The patch sadly didn't add options to remove different blur rubbish, but we have to still use a mod for that. It was supposed to fix a few crash types:
• Fix for crashes on boot and in cutscenes/gameplay.
• Fix for crash when using Staminans to gain consecutive Heat abilities during Chapter 10 Fight.
• Fix for crash in Pocket Circuit mini-game after selecting a rematch with an opponent.

Ooops, sorry, I grabbed the wrong link!

Here's another article from PC Gamer regarding Cabaret clubs: https://www.pcgamer.com/i-made-a-bil…d-i-cant-stop/

Still can't get enough time to start playing it. Hopefully this weekend.

If PCgamer's article is true, you know what my vote will be at the end of the year.
https://www.pcgamer.com/i-made-a-bil…d-i-cant-stop/
When you open up your club you take an overview of all the tables, and deploy your hostesses to match clients who wander in. Once seated, money starts pouring out of clients as they order more rounds of drinks.
Problems start popping up as the night wears on. When the hostesses need something for the table they show you a hand signal. You learn this sign language after a few sessions—more ice, a towel, an ashtray change. A wide thumb and forefinger gesture means the guest wants another drink. A tiny pinch means a small drink for her, because who knows how many more dull salarymen will want conversations tonight.

Sometimes the guests get angry. Maybe they don't feel sufficiently charmed by the personality they are matched with, maybe they can't hold their drink. You can appease them with gifts, or throw them out.
As I rake in millions I'm slightly baffled by the whole thing. We have strip clubs and escorts, but there's nothing quite like this where I live in the UK, as far as I know. Do the men believe the compliments they have paid for? Do they think the women, and the club, see them as anything more than a fat wallet? What am I missing?
The men never speak. You regularly see repeated 3D models walk in, a churn of workaday customers who might as well be identical. All that really matters are their preferences, and their wealth. I might allow a moneyed guest time with one of the club's 'platinum' hostesses, and I might offer them a session extension because my happy hour bar is almost powered up, and once that's activated I can really milk them.
Yes, even if k+m is clunky. Sorry KCD.

I'm watching hubby playing Yakuza 0. Karaoke alone is enough reason to play this. Also, dance by Goro Majima. Hilarious!!!

PC Gamer magazine (I don't know if it got on the website) actually had a whole article on mahjong in Y0.

DSO made possibly the best PC review about this game… And then spills the milk.
https://www.dsogaming.com/special/re…ciously-silly/

Pros:
- Charming main characters
- Outstanding dark narrative
- Well-directed cutscenes
- Authentic urban areas
- Fun, wacky side-stories
- Stylish and flashy combat
- Running a cabaret club
- Technically excellent port

Cons:
- Tiresome, repetitive combat
- Too many street fights
- Some unbalanced battles
- Limited play area, dead ends
- Some outdated visuals
- Some shallow mini-games
- Controller recommended
- Much subtitles, read quickly!
Subtitles are a must in every single game. Unless those are microscopic like on Nintendo Gameboys, you can't put them as cons! Especially not after mentioning the biggest sin on PC.
