      Yakuza if you've been playing the series for a while and want a shittonne of side content. It also has a very modern vibe for a JRPG kinda like Mother 3.
      Persona 5 if you want a comfy 100 hour slow paced jrpg that leans more towards the fantasy side.

          Years ago they showed off an April Fools trailer for Ichiban. It was a JRPG and people were led to think it was a major minigame that was part of 7. Apparently because of the reception to that trailer they decided to make the entire game a JRPG and now we have 7 and 8.

            Wasn't it confirmed already that the "we did it because of the trailer" isn't true? I would swear I read an interview where they said they were hoping for a good reception to the April fools joke, but they already wanted to and planned to make the whole game's battle system turn-based.

              >A little bit after, then-Chief Creative Officer of Sega and Yakuza producer Toshihiro Nagoshi gave an interview suggesting that the game only became an RPG after the reception to an April Fool’s Day joke that first revealed the game as a turn-based battle system.
              >“At first we said half-joking how about we make an RPG,” Nagoshi said in the interview. “We released an April Fool’s video. Many people were assuming that we were already making an RPG at that point. Actually, it was really something only made for April Fools’ Day. It was still an action game at the time. From there, the video was positively received, we suddenly fully changed directions. We started making it an RPG.”
              >They did in fact release a video of such a thing on April 1st, which also happens to be the first day of the financial year for many companies, when Japanese publishers tend to release a lot of information on big upcoming titles.
              >You’d be forgiven for thinking, out of context and without knowing Nagoshi, that he was telling the truth. Anyone even vaguely familiar with his interviews instantly knew this was a joke, as a game does not change that dramatically in the final year of development now matter how used to sprinting a studio might be. I got the chance to ask new RGG studio chief Masayoshi Yokoyama about this to clarify it once and for all.
              >“Of course it was a joke,” Yokoyama said through a translator. “We decide on those things before we ever start developing the game. It was not a late decision.”

      The major problem is trying to keep one story going after like 10 games, each pike 80 hours long, and the story having had around 5 endings by this point only to get forced to continue. The whole thing is a mess and you cant fix it because characters need to come back "one last time" every freaking game. I always thought the series shouls have been like FF and every game be its own thing with a new world and characters.

    Always 100 friendship, hit damage QTE, vs l16 sand bagger, rank 13 sujimancer, level 27

    Frosty breath (hits weakness)
    21 frost power = 383 damage
    333 frost power = 450 damage
    999 frost power = 606 damage

    Spicy Strike
    no sujimon = 232
    11 scorch power = 224
    333 scorch power = 276
    999 scorch power = 377

    So a 1.6x spread from having no sujimon equipped compared to 999 max stat sujimon.

    The 999 power moves are comparible in damage to a "medium damage" skill on other jobs (mechanic, desperado), using 4* weapons, which is what the game intends at this point. 5* weapons would be stronger.

    So it seems like sujimancer does scale with sujimon power, it's just so undertuned that it doesn't matter. With max stat (i.e. 999 in the equipment screen) sujimons, sujimancer keeps up in damage with job using intended weapons, but if you use Dondonko island money to get weapons one tier up, it feels super weak.

    tl;dr it's shit, it's almost OK if you just do 10 minutes of pay-to-win + a bit of grinding to get 999 stat sujimons.

      I agree. It only felt weak after I got big weapon upgrades from grinding out dondoko island though. It never felt behind... just meh. It does have amazing healing though and for some reason the sleep attack misses 99% of the time.

      There is no reasonable argument for any more than 3 save slots.

      Yes there is. I want each chapter final fight + Amon + Final bosses without having to play through the entire game again. I have made a save for every chapter ever since I got to Ishin. Should have been doing it sooner since everything up until 5 I have it just for each character's final fight or very specific boss fights.

          Most of her drink link revolves around her and Ichiban. For fricks sake she even gets a similar proposal from a guy near the end of it.

            Does that include Majima? I remember not long after it was announced there was some talk about how his VA hadn't been called in for any lines yet and people assumed he wasn't going to show up.

      Why did this whole subplot even exist? It only really matters at the start and the end of the game and it was poorly handled at that. Just having Ichiban acting like a sperg and not knowing how to admit his feelings to her would have been better then "We can still be friends while I ignore you for a year but I actually do like you"

        Because Saeko is absolutely fricking useless actually. So this was the only way they could justify giving her some "plot" relevance.

          They should have just ditched her or made her a support-only character. There's no good reason why the whole 7 cast had to come back playable.

            I'm still completely confused why any of the main three are doing anything but be support roles. Ichiban is literally going up against massive mafias and gangs again and Nanba, Adachi, and Saeko have way less reason to actually throw themselves fully into the fray.
            >Nanba literally only knows how to smack people because of a magazine he read and his main motivation for anything in 7 was only his brother. He's willingly throwing himself at the yakuza and gangs just because of his friendship with Ichiban rather than pulling a role like Tsukino did in LJ.
            >Adachi can hold his own in a fight but he's older than basically everyone in the cast, and he would work way better as some sort of procurement officer for their equipment using his cop connections or something. He's also mainly there because of Ichiban being his friend.
            >Saeko knows how to boxercize which isn't really gonna get her far and she literally only joined in 7 to find out about Nonomiya. Why isn't she someone who helps gather intelligence for Ichiban?
            You could even have them like Ei was in chapter 2 where they support Ichiban from the sidelines with buffs rather than fighting. Saeko could be a Navigator like in Persona, Nanba could be someone who throws random street items at enemies, and Adachi could do buffs.

            Should I get a job with agility as the stat bonus to 99 on everyone then? Like going dealer with Saeko even if I'm using her as an idol?

            Honestly up to you. I would say to do Breaker or Enforcer for the guys even if you aren't going to use them while for the girls Saeko really should just do the mage jobs since higher magic = better healing while Eri should go Night Queen or Matriarch since Dealer and Matriarch are her best jobs on Legend and she's strictly an attacker.

              Yeah it's pretty easy for the guys and for Eri since the former has a lot more options so you can easily get all 4 stats you listed and the latter has Clerk which for some reason has a metric shit ton of attack and agility so doesn't really have any concerns in that regard. Saeko as my idol was my main worry. Don't want her to not have enough agility to get turns. I honestly don't really know how much of an impact agility makes for that.

                Saeko typically moves less than the rest of the cast but she still moves a lot, make no mistake. It's just that with the healing situation it's gonna be 50/50 Ichiban and Saeko. Hero's heal is a 100% full heal for the team as long as you have the personality stat for it and Saeko can full heal with that concert move. It's more about how much damage can you take and can you ignore Ichiban healing to let Saeko heal or vice-versa.

                Don't think too much in depth about this or you'll drive yourself nuts, the TFMT Isn't that hard you just have to get used to Legend's quirks like accuracy checks meaning you need to use Shadow Stitch with Eri to lower evasion or rely on paralysis as it lowers enemy AGI and EVA.

                >since higher magic = better healing
                Wait healing scales with magic? What does healing do then?

                If I remember right Healing influenced it and so did Magic, it's why for a healer both help.

              Nanba and Adachi returning is fine for me. They both lost everything around the time they met Ichiban, and now they're moving forward in life "with" Ichiban. Adachi is still invested in taking down conspiracies and taking care of people who've been let down by the law, plus he has the skill to contribute to Ichiban's team at least as much as any of Kiryu's allies ever contributed to his yakuza-centric adventures.
              Nanba didn't HAVE to come back, but he's such an effective companion for Kiryu as an Ichiban proxy that it doesn't bother me. Nanba is also taking this opportunity to actually BE the best bro character that he failed to be in 7.
              There's no good reason for Saeko to be getting involved in everything, nor for her to be particularly invested in Kiryu's plight, especially not while she's on the rocks with Ichiban. As you say, she could have been a support-type character who perhaps plays a solid role in a few chapters to help Kiryu navigate Ijincho, but otherwise belongs on the sidelines.

                I get their reasons for wanting to help, my issue is more them actively being party members than support Ichiban or Kiryu can run over to, that's all. Think someone like Date. Date's just a random cop, you wouldn't put him on the main team, you'd put him in the support role helping you from the sidelines to figure stuff out for you. Tanimura works because he has that fighting training despite just being a cop.
                Then again, you could argue against this with the Shinada example, but even he fights less people overall outside of the town I guess.

          Saeko isn't going to be dropped because she's part of the original party along with Nanba and Adachi, and the only one of them I could see them retiring before getting rid of Ichiban is Adachi since he's pretty old, he's about 63 in Infinite Wealth.

          Actual fricking 8 spoilers for the final cutscene.
          By the end Kiryu is able to use his name again cause it's all over the internet anyway. He decides to undergo chemotherapy instead of just wasting away and dying like he planned at the start of the game. He's quite frail looking and I think the implication is we may play as him again in a future RPG but we're definitely never playing as him again in a beat em up.
          Unless you consider the Big Swell DLC canon and in that case the Yakuza universe has cancer solved, you just need to accept treatment.
          It's mostly about Kiryu finally leaning on others for combat and not thinking he has to lone wolf it every time.

              It is so goddamn refreshing to hear Kiryu have conversations with people where it isn't focused entirely on combat or the future of the Yakuza.
              There's a chat where Nanba says he's going to try to drink as many energy drinks as possible, while the rest of the party says it's a bad idea, Kiryu says he's tried it and he felt sick to his stomach after 4. I'm just like yeah, that's Kiryu. Pack your inventory with energy drinks and start swinging until every enemy hits the ground.

      Kiryu says he's been at the Daidoji for three years and that happened as soon as 6 ended so winter 2016 is when 6 took place meaning it's 2019 when the game starts.
      7 takes place during 2019 and Kiryu is literally there in Yokohama when Ichiban is recovering and doing stuff.
      The ending is immediately after the finale of 7 so it's still 2019.
      8's Story Demo is in tandem with 8 meaning Kiryu just landed in Hawaii within the past few days of when he met Ichiban in 2023. He was off doing his own stuff between 2019 and 2022.

            People said I might be looking into it too much and masks were always there in the games (Which is true), but I felt like in LJ there were more NPCs with them than usual. It wouldn't matter in Gaiden because it's set before it even happened.

                It is, they do it for common colds and stuff just to be considerate, but in LJ it felt like more NPCs had them than usual. You occasionally see them in the older games with a mask but it's rare, whereas in LJ I felt like maybe every third group of people had someone walking around with one.

      Hanawa actually asks him about it at the end of Gaiden and Kiryu says that he will visit other places first and go to Hawaii later (or something like that).
      He probably went to Hawaii after finding about his condition.

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          You may as well, Gaiden has only 5 chapters while Infinite Wealth has 14. It's short because it's basically a DLC turned into a short game, they padded it out with the Coliseum mainly.

        • 4 weeks ago
          Moose

          That's pretty much half way through already. It barely even matters at all to 8 according to everyone who has finished the story. It's basically context for Hanawa, on what Kiryu was doing between 6 and 7, and that's more or less it. Kiryu isn't even consistent with the Kiryu from Gaiden and lets everyone call him "Kiryu-san" and take pictures of him when Gaiden explicitly established that if anyone knew he was alive the Daidoji would hang him out to dry and heavily punish him to the point that he refuses to drop being Joryu at any point outside of talking to Hanawa or some very specific moments with the Daidoji themselves.

            I'm gonna assume the reason he's more lax is infinite wealth takes place 4-5 years after Gaiden.
            The Kiryu issue probably isn't as important anymore, especially with both Tojo and Omi having disbanded.

            Circumstances have changed a lot, as Date points out in IW.
            Daidoji doesn't give a frick about Kiryu anymore and just lets him do whatever he wants. Tatara channel exposed a lot of secrets out in the open so they are not the super secret organization they were back in 2019.
            Kiryu's only reason for keeping up appearances in IW is, as he puts it, the promise he made to the Daidoji, and not wanting to hurt his friends by making them experience him dying soon anyway.

    Was considering getting the ng+ dlc before but im tired of the combat at this point. The only hard content seems to be the last boss because he always sets the party leader asleep with one skill and requires team healing for his meaty aoe attacks. I think ill just skip completing sujimon since its kinda lame and finish dondoko island since its much more fun

    >Sophie is some silver-spooned chick who speaks like she's some British aristocrat who has never even stepped foot outside but she's a random white chick slipping between a Scottish and American accent who is willing to mount a random guy she texted on a dating app and flaunt her nice ass.

              Because it's not misinformation? Just because you didn't notice or didn't have issues doesn't mean they don't exist.

              0 and K1 are fine because of the work they did on Ishin to account for higher framerates.
              K2 has issues above 30 FPS. This is a documented fact and why Silent Patch exists as otherwise multiple minigames are completely unplayable like Toylets. Even with Silent Patch the physics on enemies are broken and they fly way farther than they're supposed to at just 60 let alone 120.
              All three Remastered versions of 3-5 have issues at 60 FPS.
              >3R has increased guard frequencies, broken quickstepping (Fixable with a mod), enemies with guns almost never fire them and shotgun users are especially glitchy, Heat Action timing is significantly limited, they added spin on pool (Fixable by disabling the Y axis on your right stick), and PC specifically has (Or had) issues with tuna being instant line breaks.
              >4R has the sniper firing twice as often, broken quickstepping (Fixable with a mod), enemies in general grab more frequently, and the boat segment has issues in it.
              >5R has the entire Shinada gauntlet being broken both in the main story and in the Ultimate Missions.
              6 as far as I understand only has issues with the physics when attacking enemies, nothing else.
              Judgment has issues with the drones at 60 with them not flying correctly and is an issue on Judgment Remastered. One guy here also had an issue with the drone not detecting Ryan at all at 60 FPS and higher and it fixed it at 30.
              7 as far as I know didn't have any noticeable issues at higher framerates.
              Lost Judgment as far as I know also didn't.
              Gaiden has all the issues I listed

              On release Ishin Kiwami had Heat being drained at worse and worse rates the higher in the framerate you went to the point that going above 60 had you losing Heat absurdly quickly. This was fixed with a patch on PC, I have no idea if PS5 or SeX still have issues at 60.

      No, guests more or less just consider the whole island when they want "Slightly Rustic" or "Sleazy". Otherwise they'll gravitate towards stuff they like and raise your Satisfaction, Popularity, or Dondobucks.

      Ichiban spent his childhood as a shut-in gamer surrounded by prostitutes.
      As a teenager he was a friendless delinquent until his soulmate moment with Arakawa.
      Then his "first friend ever" was Masato, whom Ichiban fell right into unconditional love with while they had a weird yakuza family power dynamic going on too.
      Ichiban got to be semi-normal for a handful of years within the Arakawa family (befriended other yakuza like Mitsu and had yakuza-coded relations with people around town), then went to prison for 18 years, missing a period of massive technological and social/cultural development.
      Ichiban had no chance of ever NOT becoming a social moron, in spite of his empathic nature. He has barely three years of life experience as a normal adult civilian.

    Still grinding away 7 in my off hours. Just got every job to 30. What stats do I want to prioritize for a 2nd job to get to 99? I assumed agility and attack were the ones to go for but I thought I'd double check.

    • 4 weeks ago
      Moose

      AGI > HP = DEF > ATK.
      HP depends on the character. Someone like Nanba for example needs it more than DEF while people with decent enough HP like Han could benefit more from a bit more DEF. In general though, AGI is kind on both 7 and 8. When you use Rush in 8 on Kiryu and then switch to Beast it's a really good demonstration of how broken the stat is because Beast clearly loses a lot of AGI when switching to it.

Kiryu IS a great guy, so he's earned the love. The only Kiryu wank that doesn't feel right is Ichiban's friends like Nanba and Saeko acting like they're big fans and close friends of Kiryu at the start of the game.

      The only reason 6 was planned to be Kiryu's "final" game was because the first Dragon Engine game had to be massively scaled back in content compared to previous entries and they needed a hook to get people interested.

        Whatever it was the reason, it was almost a perfect finale.

    What happened between Gaiden and 8 that made Kiryu drop the "I'm Joryu, not Kiryu" thing?
    He pretty much introduced himself to everyone as Kiryu and even divulged his connections to Daidoji to total strangers that he just met, they even changed the reason he's in Hawaii from an indefinite vacation as his reward to an actual mission from Daidoji, it almost feels like that Gaiden wasn't canon.

      The Gaiden script was written after IW and they didn't feel like going back to change it. The next entry will have to somehow mix the two together now.

    Seonhee must be fricking soaked considering how much she crumbles whenever Kiryu gets near.
