      Fellow Careless Whisper bro.

      YLAD has a fan fucking tastic main cast. Ichiban is great, Adachi and Saeko are great, and the story is interesting on it's own beyond them. For me, the protag and main cast in Judgement is way more dull and boring, it seems like they were more focused on making Yagami seem 'cool' in Judgement than making him actually fun and interesting, but maybe that's just me.

      If I were you I'd go with YLAD, or at least download it so it's in your library forever while it's still free on PSPlus..

      >the protag and main cast in Judgement is way more dull and boring
      Words of wisdom. Yakuza 7 definitely has it's bad moments, but Judgement and Lost Judgement make the player question why they are even playing the games in the first place.

    Well first ask yourself.
    Do you want to play a beat em up with a ex-lawyer turned detective.

                serious answer would be you now realize yuta saw the big rusty secret proof of the corruption as well as Kiryu but nobody came for him for that, so basically uh based retard Date allowed some slimy politician with good diplomatic qualities into a room with Kiryu on good painkillers and Kiryu god duped out of cool Tokyo mafia action just like that.

                Ichiban goes through everything that happened in 0 and 1 in one game. Even goes homeless, has Korea and China immigrants after his life and has the entire country against him as an opponent when he goes into politics.
                Ichiban goes through more shit than kiryu does in a single game. Kiryu just stretches everything out and wonders around kamurocho for 70% of each of his games.
                The events of Yakuza games tend to span a very short time frame for each game. Yakuza 7 takes a bit a of a leap from that and besides obvious time skips at the start of the game. Takes place within the span of a few months and not like a week.

                His only redeeming moment was the ending chapter 3 discussion with Ichiban, that's it. I absolutely loathed his double heel turn and he wasn't endearing as a character at all even when you know his backstory. His Baka Mitai is definitely top tier though, I still think Akiyama's is better but his is pretty much right after. When it comes to English VAs outside of karaoke he's dead last next to the only Bostonian in the Omi Alliance: Ishioda.

                Does 6 offer anything that K2 doesn't? Everything I've heard about make it seem like K2, but worse.

                Onomichi is great, the substories are pretty great overall and they're all fully voiced, Someya is one of the better antagonists and has awesome fights, in general it has some pretty fantastic boss fights, and it has some great gauntlets.

        Imagine a yakuza game where very action is basically a heat action. To some that’s an improvement, to others a detriment. I like yakuza as a full package so the change to RPG didn’t hurt so much as feel like an interesting change. I honestly want them to keep going down the RPG path while also having the more traditional beat ‘em up gameplay in other games as well. I just hate that judgement is becoming a franchise instead of making a new story out of the millions of potentially interesting people living in Kamurocho and letting Yagami boring ass be a one off.

        No, and you can't change it in PA either. It's strictly in substories or main story events that ask you to change into your disguise. The only character that can do that is Kaito in his DLC because it's an unlockable ability and The Kaito Files has no PA in it but rather acts as a PA in the final chapter.

            Nope. I wouldn't be surprised if it's some sort of clause Johnny's has at this point. You can make a save in chapter 12 before you to talk to Tesso and it allows you to wear any disguise but only during nighttime settings while chapter 1 lets you run around with the janitor disguise and only the janitor disguise until you go to Seiryo in the morning but you can visit both Kamurocho and Ijincho.

      They give you better dungeons to level up in as you progress through the game. Grinding is really quick. If you don't want to do their genuine dungeons, they even have a tower that just takes you instantly to each fight and you can choose which floor you start at once clearing that stage (they do this for every 5th stage).

    • 2 weeks ago
      Moose

      The "grind" is a joke even if you're doing TFMT. It's the least I've ever grinded in a JRPG.
      For the main story you just run the <NOT OPTIONAL> optional dungeon in chapter 13 once and maybe do the last five floors one or two more times if you're not confident and that'll take you through all of it along with FMT.
      If you're doing TFMT then you just need to get at least two jobs for a character to 99 (Your main job and a throwaway for stats) and everyone else to 30 (For stats and access to all moves). 99 takes like two to three hours per job if you have at least one JP item equipped so six hours max and then getting everything to 30 takes like maybe 10 minutes per job. It takes longer to run over to the metal slime equivalents than it does getting to 30.

      Even if you get every single job to 99 it's maybe like 30 hours at most. I have spent more time grinding Platinum Ingots in FFXIII and leveling skills or finding equipment for said skills in Lost Odyssey. I have spent more time than that grinding out Digimon in Digimon Cyber Sleuth to fill out the not-Pokedex.

      Yes, I think it's one of the best in the series though the combat is unbalanced. Keep in mind that it doesn't really start until about chapter 5 or 6. I can't remember when the first major event happens. The tailing missions are also unbelievably dull and easy so prepare yourself for the endgame ones because the last story one literally makes you go in the same circle three times.

      I slogged my way through both kiwamis and 3 and it was worth it. 4 and 5 especially are some of the best content in the franchise.

    BIG FAVOUR TO ASK.
    Did anyone manage to download the Yakuza 7 wallpapers and icons from the SEGA 60th site? I can't seem to get anything on there now.

    Can I play LJ without playing any of the Yakuza games?

      Judgment can be played by itself
      LJ has one overarching detail about the Yakuza, you can play Y7 or literally read up on anti-yakuza law.

      You should play 0-7, skipping 3 if you so choose.

        Forgot to mention, if you want to play all of them the order in the end is 6, Judge Eyes, 7, Lost Judgment

      never ever
      It technically already is ported, the Luna version was built for PC and streamed to you. So it's already ported, just unavailable.
