    Don't let Moose sell you on Dead Souls 2.0. The game is largely meme content. Sega was so weary, that they originally denied the west from localizing it.

      They hadn't even gotten to 5 by the time Ishin came out. Why would they have done the spin-off first, especially after Dead Souls was a bomb in the west?

        There's a moment during the Shinsengumi rolecall in chapter 4 where a guy here noticed they didn't have picture related mentioned because it implies Hayashi molests/abuses his men.
        It's not specifically clear from that line but when I tell you the next bit...
        Anyone who has played Ishin knows that this means they're going to be heavily changing the moment in the story where Hayashi kills a bunch of people and kidnaps Hana to force Baba to trade himself for Hana because Hayashi wants to have some rounds at Baba's boy hole. There's also a minute long thing where Hayashi laughs at the implication that he's straight and says he's gay and doesn't find women attractive.
        This part is more speculation but because of how they're censoring the last two things then you can also argue they might censor the returning Kenzan substory where Ryoma walks into a brothel in Gion, is promised a beautiful woman a guy, and then it's an oiled sumo wrestler scam where they both start shaming Ryoma for not wanting a gay sumo wrestler prostitute.

        >Ruins the combat.
        You can ignore using the cards yourself but boss movesets are now ruined because in their second phase/Heat phase they spam the hell out of the cards. Izo 3's fight that they show off in the demo have him using it almost every other move. This will also lead to Tokugawa's boss fight being less special because the whole point of his boss fight was that it was an unorthodox fighting style but when everyone can use magical whirlwinds that's kinda not a thing.
        Many of the Battle Dungeon cards have also had their uses changed like Lao or Shinada.

          I already pre-ordered Ishin the day it got put on steam. I've been wanting to play it and now I finally am able to. I fucking love the setting and I really like how RGG games are structured.

          Quite literally never. There's child prostitution and child sex slaves. That's a big no no since retards can't separate current world views from historical world views. However, I just started playing Kenzan last night with the incomplete english patch and I'm using ThePatrick guide as well as KHHsubs videos for subtitles when I actually wanna see what a character has said. I'm probably not gonna do everything and mainly focus on the main story because it's rough having to pause every couple minutes to read a guide and follow along on videos. However, I really want to play Kenzan so here I am.

          They had the "You're not going home tonight" thing with the gay man in Bantam in 6 though. There's also working alongside okama's in previous games that didn't get taken out as well as being able to fight Michiru in one of 3R's ultimate matches.

        Yeah, that's why I'm saying I'm just speculating on that one, but considering what they're specifically trying to remove from the main story you can argue that might fall under an "unacceptable" thing. Yeah, Michiru is in 3R's Ultimate Missions to beat him up but his entire substory line is gone and so is Mack's perfect shot of Michiru forcing himself onto Kiryu. I think he's still around in 4R but in 4 I don't believe they made fun of Michiru like in 3R.

        There's no way they remove the Saigo thing though, I would consider that inoffensive compared to the example we already know is removed.

          So, I've done all the substories in every Yakuza game. How necessary would you say the substories are in Kenzan if I'm mostly interested in just doing the story? If I knew japanese or there was a complete fan translation patch, I wouldn't ask but I'm finding it kind of annoying to have to pause all the time to figure out what's going on.

          • 6 days ago
            Moose

            If you're just interested in doing the story just do the story. The substories are entirely side things in this game and are more for fun or to just talk about some stuff from history. A couple are to do with historical things like Benkei or Goemon if I remember right, one of them dealt with the Portugese, one of them was about how entertainment was done at that one theater in the suburbs via the water throwing girl, how Kabuki Theater started, etc.

            Kabuki's substory is the only one you might want to do if you want access to that minigame but it's basically normal combat but you're locked to an umbrella and beating people up gets you mon/ryo the longer you don't take damage.
            Komaki's/his rival's training only matters if you can read it since they talk about their history from the little I recall about it and it's missable if you don't do it all by the final chapter since you can't go back to Gion.

            The secret boss fight is actually one of my favorites because you can't really cheese it and it's quite fair on top of having some silly things but you need to be glued to the guides to not miss any substory, kakemawari mission, or bounty and you can't make a single mistake during any substory or it voids it much like 1 and 2.
            Just make sure every single chapter after you're introduced to the watermelon monk you go to the beachfront and do the minigame successfully as this unlocks exclusive boss Heat Actions in the "Feel the Heat" moments and some are boss-specific and only usable in that chapter.

            Yakuza casual here (played 0 K1 K2 3 off game pass) and I genuinely liked what I played so far plus I like Edo period shifts, I should get this right?

            Yes.

                I already started the game with like 300 points from previous games so I bought some of them outright. The tattoos, ship pieces, mounts, and weapons were all given out for free during weekly events that they're not doing anymore so I didn't have to buy any of those sets that are up now.

                If you're on PC you could probably just Cheat Engine them in. With my Xbone Ubisoft Connect knows if you already own the items so it'll say you own them in the app, and it's glitchy even when it does because I have all the Adrestia bits from the weekly challenge but it's still telling me I can buy the set for 60 coins.

      On both console and PC guns are broken on enemies in that they don't shoot at all and when they finally randomly can they shoot two shots which can lead to shotgunners one-shotting you, Tag Team Heat Actions are broken so you have a quarter of a second to react to some of them making them significantly harder to land for the completion list, bowling is broken so you need to look up guides on how to throw it on Remastered specifically because 3 throws don't work right for strikes, and the enemy AI blocks more on Hard/Legend than in 3.
      https://cookieplmonster.github.io/mods/yakuza-3/
      Get that as well.

      Anyone know if the preorder dlc is worth anything? I’m a big completionfag for RGG games
      If it’s something I can get in game, I won’t bother and wait for a sale
      Just don’t want to be locked out of shit even if it’s cosmetic

      No, not at all. Shinada is nerfed from what he originally was and I went over the weapons

      [...]

      so I don't need to retype this.
      If you're a completionist just know that the Black Cannon and Shinada SSR were free in the original and they're charging for it now.

      1. why are you a tripfag
      2. how long have you been playng the yakuza games for

      1. Because I'm a jerk who has been doing it for like 16 or 17 years and I just want to because I like it. No other reason. People can filter me if I bother them.
      2. Since 5's announcement of getting localized. I was asking in the threads how to get into it since the Heat Actions looked neat, got into it, loved it, missed the missable substory in chapter 4, messed up the casino unlocking, found out Amon existed and I wouldn't be able to fight him, then dropped it. I picked it back up again when 0 happened and reminded me I still had a playthrough I needed to restart which led to me importing 1&2 HD and later Kenzan and then that was that.

        Alright cheers Moose I did get the silent patch on K2 and that worked well. Shame about the gun people being broken and the tag team heats being a bitch.

          Moose

          Sorry, I meant how to get into the series with 1, not with 5. There's no missable substory in 5. With 1 there's a missable trading substory in chapter 4 that will lock you out of getting the tape in chapter 5 if you didn't complete it because the NPCs for trading don't spawn. Then you can lock yourself out of the starving kid substory if you ignore him in front of West Park and then if you don't immediately talk to him when Haruka is following you around in chapter 6 he's permanently missable. Haruka's substories are also permanently missable if you don't do them with her.

        >i legit don't understand why the whole Genda offices gives so much shit about the whole Ehara stuff
        Because the entire event pretty much had Ehara damaging Saori's reputation and they hired Yagami specifically to get to the bottom of what's going on so they're invested in it.
        >also why does Yagami even get so emotional about her
        Because regardless of her anger and dismissal towards him he was still getting through to her, the guilt got to her and she opened up to him revealing everything, and as you'll find out why in a few chapters when Yagami outright explains why he constantly harps about her.
        If you want minor spoilers it's because the main antagonist refuses to acknowledge that their actions caused Sawa's death while preaching their own idea of justice and actively tries to get Yagami killed on top of it effectively making his actions hypocritical.

        but is not like Ehara did it even personally to her, the fact that Saori was the lawyer was a coinicidence since no one wanted to take the case and its not like she even tried aswell, the whole thing was a huge fumble, and the media barely even covered the case itself due to the police wanting to put a wrap on the whole thing ASAP until the video of him killing Toshiro's bully appeared, so i don't get why Saori feels so personally attacked but maybe is just me being autistic as fuck

      Sawa literally confessed to Yagami what actually happened and poured her heart out when she felt like she couldn't before or that nobody else would believe her. She was only giving him the cold shoulder before because she thought nothing would get done. It's like you completely skipped all the dialogue or just looked at it without comprehending what was going on.

        It could work but they'd need to redo most of the gameplay, I doubt they'd do a 1:1 when the most criticized part about it is the gameplay, not to mention it would get slaughtered in reviews if it was kept the same. They'd also have to add a bunch of new substories into the mix because a lot of substories in the game are multiple part ones that are literally just room transitions which they've shown they'd consolidate like that did in K1 and K2.

      It's a western thing, actually. In Japan, the series is called 龍が如く (Ryuu ga Gotoku), which translates to Like a Dragon. But for some retarded reason, when the first game came out, the western publisher changed its name to Yakuza and it carried on like this until 7 (which wasn't supposed to have 7 in the Japanese title because of a different protagonist, etc., but it eventually did; this didn't carry over to the western release, because SEGA decided to take this opportunity and correct the series' western name to Like a Dragon). Ishin is a spin-off that didn't see a release in the west originally, now its remake is coming out and it'll be properly called Like a Dragon: Ishin.

          You forgot 1&2 HD, 3R, 4R, and 5R (All three were individual releases in Japan) which would throw that amount to 21. Then there's FotNS if you want to count that which would be 22 since it still has the "Like a" branding. RGGO would be 23.

            >counting HD versions and remasters as separate games
            Moose just fucking stop. I'll give you the Kiwamis and FotNS cause the Kiwamis are actual remakes, but counting remasters is just retarded.

              I'm just trying to think of his logic. Even if we discount remasters then there's Ishin Kiwami, FotNS, and RGGO missing but that doesn't bring it to 21 unless you start counting remasters. He might be forgetting RGGo and counting FotNS, Ishin Kiwami, Gaiden, and 8 which would bring it to 21 but no one's played three of those so it should technically only be 18 titles if he's forgetting RGGO. Otherwise it's 19 titles out currently not counting remasters.

              I'd also argue the Remasters (Not 1&2 HD) should count as different versions since they offer different content than the originals like nuTanimura and new hostesses (Even if their dialogue isn't changed). You could make the argument only 4R counts because of Tanimura. Then there's Judgment Remastered which has an entirely different look to it because of the lighting change and different minigames.

                If you're gonna count that then Project x Zone and Rainbow Six Siege are also Yakuza games.

                It doesn't close the window. It only pauses the game. You can just press play and it'll resume. I'm just watching whatever is in the KHH subs video until I'm able to play

                Oh, that's great then. Yeah, you do you however you find it works out. For me it was the "Sync the video as best as possible" method.

          I can't remember, did Kenzan have pausable cutscenes? Because if you really wanted you could try syncing KHH's video and your gameplay. That's how I did it in Kenzan and Ishin. Even if it doesn't have pausable cutscenes you could try and sync it as best as possible.

              I think that pauses the whole emulation (As in, closes the window) so it wouldn't be as easy. Something I think people here said they were doing during ishin was skipping the cutscenes, pausing if anything happened like a boss fight or something, then they watched the cutscenes leading up to that point and then continued in-game.

      And that's why Tanimura is the best player character

  56. 6 days ago

    Almost done with replaying 4, near the end of Kiryu's part. Some post Saejima thoughts:
    >Tanimura's combo finisher heat move is cool as fuck and he generally has some of the best side content
    >Saito is one of the worst bosses in the series and has no business being so powerful as a minor antagonist, especially when you always fight him at a low level
    >Kiryu's part is so fucking short, chapter 3 was like one cutscene
    >plot is more confusing than I remember with all the double agents and backstabbing
    >they actually did something with Hamazaki after squandering him in 3
    >Akiyama's part is still all around the best (which is what I remembered the most clearly from my original playthrough)
    Still loving it anyway but I might have to knock it down a place or two in my personal ranking, strong highs but it's really inconsistent. That said Akiyama will always be my absolute man and I love the whole cast so much that it kinda outweighs a lot of my issues.

      I find the plot pretty simply understood as Shibata/Katsuragi/Munakata having a fallout with Arai working for all three trying to make something for his own vision, Kido and Daigo mostly got roped in. The fact we don't see enough of Arai being the guy Akiyama simps hard for and relegating to only the first boss in the finale is kinda disappointing in that sense

      • 6 days ago

        Or Daigo getting shoved in as Kiryu's final boss because he had no relation to the story otherwise whatsoever. It didn't even make sense that he would beat him up for something that was out of his control.

    Why is it that Yakuza games always punish you for doing all substories during your playthrough? I like completing them in between story stuff, you know. But then after I finish the story, suddenly I get all those wacky outfits in premium adventure and nothing to use them on anymore. Why don't they at least give us the outfits for NG+?

    >Yagami as a lead still feels refreshing to me, he is a character with a lot of nuance, he's also extremely cool
    >The story is a big slowburn, there's a ton of walking segments and a ton of dialogue in general but it is quality, and the intrigue is palpable

    >Kuroiwa is still pretty intimidating and an asshole all around
    >Kaito is best bro
    >The combat after having experienced LJ is a massive stepdown, but still somewhat enjoyable, EX Heat charges up too slow for what little it offers
    >The friendship system is great fun, and encourages going out of your way to interact with businesses more
    >Sidecases are quality all around, there's not a single bad substory in the game
    Honestly it was a great foundation, and the story is just too good. Just wish the combat and content and gameplay was comparable to LJ's, maybe they'll finally manage to get everything right if a third Judgment happens

      >EX Heat charges up too slow for what little it offers
      I think this is because they wanted to discourage spamming it for EX Actions and EX Burst early on which is why it's so slow. Once you get it to 2 it's pretty reasonable, and 3 is ridiculously fast. They didn't want to fall into the 6 trap where you can very quickly go into Ultimate Heat and then there's never a reason not to be in it during fights outside of variety.
