    btw why did they remove the blue jacket Kiryu had in the demo? It's not even an unlockable.

      It would have been way better than Kiryu putting on his yakuza suit again. He's a civilian. Wish they at least gave us the jacket in premium adventure or as DLC.

        Maybe it was a temp clothing for a planned collaboration like they did with jackets in 5 and 0 but it didn't went through so they removed it for safety

        Blue also fits better since Kiryu is often associated with Seiryu, the Azure Dragon.

            Yakuza 4 wasn't as stupid as people like to claim, and I don't even think rubber bullets is the worst asspull in that game either.
            It probably has the most asspulls, but they shouldn't shock you exactly, having played through the previous three games all with asspulls of their own.

        Not really man, did you even play the game?

        -Kanda is from Nishiki family, since Shindo was dead and Arase was out of the family, Kanda was the only one with balls and power to be the new patriarch of the family, yet Date explain that if Nishiki were alive Kanda would be nothing in that family.

        -Mine, he literally explain that he paid Kanda to join the Tojo, he went from Nishiki Captain to patriarch of his own family thanks to his money.

        -Hamazaki, he had a deal with Lau Ka Long, of course it was a secret, to the Tojo he's the man that conquered the former Snake Triad's turf in Yokohama with only 10 guys! of course he was promoted for that feat.

        Yakuza is very faithful with Yakuza 2 ending, since those 5 guys (Kashiwagi, Majima, Mine, Hamazaki and Kanda) are the only direct patriarchs after the massacre of Yakuza 2, Yakuza 4 is worse, not less than a year later you see the room full of new patriarchs or guys like Shibata.

      Kiryu is once again trying to live a quiet life until Daigo finds him and tries to get him to help resolve a deteriorating alliance, Majima's blood brother breaks out of prison again after finding Majima was murdered, Haruka pursues a career as an idol, Akiyama the friendly loan shark is there, and a disgraced baseball player, Shinada, is hired by Daigo to investigate his own banishment from the league.
      >Y6
      Haruka runs off for a while only to show up and get hit by a car and end up in a coma. Also, it turns out she has a kid now so Kiryu is off to find the father while also babysitting.

      honestly, I started with 0 and went Kiwami 1, then original 2, then release order after that, though i did go back and play the original Y1.
      Kiwami 2 just feels so wrong going from K1 to K2, combat is entirely different.

            With a gunshot wound and after fighting an army prior, Kiryu still handily kicks his ass. He also loses to him early in the game, and not long before by Saejima.

            Not even a challenge. Probably canonically the weakest final boss Kiryu fights, his hitman is a bigger threat.

                Okay, I shall commit the sin of explaining the joke to you: Haruka refers to Kiryu as ojisan, like when you're walking around the city with her and you run too fast, she asks you to go slower etc. When people insult Haruka in these threads by calling her a whore or that she is useless, people post images or gifs of Haruka being outraged, yelling "Ojisan!" like she does to Kiryu. Ojisan means uncle, even though he is her foster father, it's an endearing term and she would use it when she disapproves of his actions. Why do you say responding with a Haruka meme is spam, but you don't tell people calling her a whore to stop spamming that?

    why did people hate Y3? I just finished it and it was the best one so far for me.

    0 story was badly spaced, boring even the rock paper scissor fight was worse than kiwami

      There are several reasons:

      A- They are 0 fags and hate 3 despite 0 being heavily influenced by 3.
      B- They are 2 fags that thing Ryuji is the best villain in the series.
      C- They hate orphans
      D- They hate the outdated combat and broken minigames.

      Answer A: People that haven't played previous Yakuza games don't know that Kiryu said multiple times he wants to open up his own orphanage after 1,2 (even mentioned few times in sub-stories)
      Answer B: Back then, Yakuza 3 western release was panned for massive cut content and unacceptable localization quality, hence the poor opinion which nowadays due to constant parrot chinese whispers turned into "Yakuza 3 as a video game sucks because... well that's just natural knowledge that I heard for years!"

        Instead you press XXB on repeat. Meanwhile bosses do 10 hit combos on you and you take zero damage from that. It is almost like they knew it was a problem and just compensated by having everyone deal zero damage.

      A lot of people drank some sort of kool aid that it was the devil of the series due to shitposting. It's also very much on the sillier side of things and has stupid shit like Kazama's CIA twin. Other than that a lot of people came to series with 0 and K1 and expected that sort of quality and got met with the campy feeling of the early PS3 titles which probably made them angry that the series wasn't what they expected. It's also a game that is very rough combat wise, and takes a lot of interacting with certain things to finally get going, and that's something the average player is not willing to do.

        Gonna start it properly soon, I got up to the first tailing mission and found that mechanic to be terribly boring, I really hope there isn't a lot of it. Yagami seemed...interesting, I guess. I feel like he might not be as entertaining due to him being essentially a big actor.

          I feel like Yagami is a great character, he just gets a lot of flak because he isn't wacky or overly emotional and is much more subdued in his emotion, he's a character with a lot of nuance and you can pick that up if you're clever enough. Also don't get discouraged by the slow start or the tailing missions, yes there's a lot of those but if you actually just roll with them you'll be rewarded with the best written plot in an RGG game. I never understood the hate for Yagami, dude's great.

            Thanks anon. Yeah it's not any hate on my end, just a bit of initial skepticism, but I liked what little I saw of him and playing a detective sounds cool. Honestly after Ichiban I wouldn't mind a cooler and more stoic character.

              He's not stoic at all, he has a ton of expression, he's mostly cocky and witty and deals with the emotional trauma in his backstory through Judgment, you'll see once the story starts rolling properly around chapter 4/5. Playing as a detective is cool as hell though, and I feel like Judgment really nails that aspect by letting you take cases from people and in substories you demand people pay you, it all makes a lot of sense and it makes you feel more than a bystander like in the other games.

      I like Kiryu better, but Akiyama's not a Mary Sue. You can't forget the humiliation he got from Kiryu in 2 games. You can't call him a Mary Sue after that. And before you say "Kiryu beats everyone's ass anyways," it holds more weight when you're a playable protagonist.

                whenever some LARPing retard does this, ask them which one in particular they're butthurt over being replaced. They never answer because two of them were original characters, and nobody gives a fuck about Kugihara, Baba, or Aoyama. Replacing Ogita with Koshimizu from 6 is legit, too.

                Adachi and Shibusawa replacing the characters they made up are great ideas, too.

        >How is LAD controversial
        Did you miss the fact that it completely changed the mainline's genre because the devs misunderstood people were excited about the April Fools content because they thought it would be the next game's Clan Creator/Battle Dungeon-esque minigame? It was and still is the biggest issue people have with 7 existing, and it's even stupider because they had Judgment which literally had Yagami being a random civvy teaming up with his friends fighting lower stakes battles that would have made perfect sense without upheaving everything the series is known for.

        Now the spinoff is the mainline gameplay and the mainline is the spinoff gameplay and it's super weird. It's like if Halo Wars gameplay became the mainline Halo gameplay and Halo Wars games became the only way to play the FPS side of Halo. Or if Dead Souls gameplay became the primary focus of 7 and 8.

                I'd say I'm a fan of the series. I love action games a lot more than I do jrpgs but at the same time, one of my favorite games is a ps1 jrpg. It really depends on what you can handle. I found LAD to be way better than I anticipated and I really liked it overall.

                I fucking despise it, and yet your character building depends on it. You wouldn't believe how stripped for money you are in this game if you don't do that shit. I literally cannot afford weapons and have to base my party around whatever weapons I happened to find in a chest somewhere. They better cut that shit out in the next game.

                Didn't bother me. I don't know what else to tell you.

            As a JRPG they had the general idea of what a JRPG is but had no idea how to balance it.

            On Normal (Your first playthrough) you can just mash attack while occasionally healing with party healing items and get by pretty easily so if you don't mind something like that it's fine. It actually lets you dick around with all jobs and pretty much any combination is viable even on the FMT (Postgame dungeon). There's minor difficulty humps in chapters 6 and 11 when they change up enemies in the overworld but they're fairly easily powered through, and there's a diminishing returns system to stop you from overleveling and trying new jobs each chapter so if you don't level up like every four battles you've hit it.
            On Legend (Your NG+ playthrough or TFMT attempts) the issues with the gameplay really start showing.
            >Apparently there is a grind near the end?
            Yes but no. In chapter 12 there will be a boss fight that feels seemingly impossible if you just do the main story. During that chapter you're taken to a optional dungeon that the game tells you is optional at least twice while inside of it but they intend for you to clear it fully within that chapter before moving on as it gears you up and levels you a lot. People consider this "grinding" when it's like a two hour detour that they decided to call optional. If they didn't call it optional I don't think people would complain as much.

She lies to his face that she doesn't know of any connection between her and the other 2 but she has a picture with some people from that highschool right on her desk that we know about. WHY THE FUCK DOES HE NOT ADDRESS THAT? Are they pushing this character further and further away until the make her silent by killing her? If they are seriously doing this everybody involved can go suck a cock. This is fucking retarded. Yagami is shown to not back down from even detaining people who have even a shred of culpability.

      He was written to be a shit so Kiryu had someone to fight. The whole premise was that Daigo was faltering and Kiryu needed to beat some sense back into him, then promises to stop running away and help out the Tojo before running away and not help the Tojo again. Kiryu is meant to be the honorable Yakuza that no one can match but he is pretty bad and just beats up any who disagree.

        And guess who isn't in Kamurocho either? Again Akiyama was absent in 7, I'm just saying now they have a way to potentially justify it, like he's one of the few returning characters they could reasonably bring back. It would even be a natural continuation of his ending in 6.

      >And the only way to raise number is to do the shitty fucking management sim
      No. Do the Battle Arena. It's not optional, it's mandatory. It gives you the second best weapons for the default jobs and a bunch of endgame armor for free as long as you meet the optional requirements (Which is really easy to do even at that stage). It will also level your general and job levels quite a bit. The weapons you get from Chinatown are only better for non-default jobs if you're being lazy, and you can get a bunch of free armor from the Ijincho Underground if you do a single run that will hold you until postgame.

      Did you guys open the "fun packs" in Kiwami 1-2?
      Feels like it just dumps a bunch of cheat items on you that are way too good in the early game. I ended up just reloading the save and not getting them.

      They're not cheat items, they're free patch items that have been given in every game up until K2. You're intended to have them. Cheat items are strictly stuff you get from paid DLC in K2, Judgment, and LJ. It's where Ishin's best Battle Dungeon card is from, it's how you make early game Dead Souls more tolerable since you can craft the Handcannon a bit earlier, it's how you get some decent SSR cards in K2 before you get your SSRs from substories, etc.

          >Do I have to go all the way through if I just wanna beat the game on normal?
          Yes. Like I said above it's only like two hoursish, maybe three since you can fly by a lot of floors even without knowing what to expect and the optional requirements are fairly easy to reach.
          >The first sewers dungeon?
          Yes. If you just need some mediocre armor without paying for anything to get by you can run it once and loot some safes then use whatever the Battle Arena gives you outside of that. This should carry you to finishing FMT at the very least since if you can finish the final boss you can easily clear the FMT. If you're really worried running the dungeon in the final chapter gets you the best armor in the game from the safes.
          >Does it actually scale up as you progress?

      >I'm just not feeling this orphanage thing
      It's the beach episode of the series but a character from it is important in 4 and the orphanage is a recurring plot point for 4-6. The orphanage bits are 30 minute to 1 hour sidetracks maybe three times in total throughout the entire game, the rest of it is main story stuff. It also has good side content and fun bosses. Just make sure you're not playing on Hard if you're on the remaster even if you're on PC.
      >seems like it's going to be an immensely frustrating asspull
      You're gonna love every game going forward then since they have twists on par with it. 3's got some silly stuff but 4 takes the cake with its finale which is incredibly funny at how many twists they shove into it.

        The unique thing about 3 is that the beach looks beautiful. But I guess you may not want to beat the game just for that. Mine is okay as a villain too. You can tell from the QTE mid-fight that he's not meant to be near Kiryu's level like Ryuji was, he's just some angry gay guy. And that was a nice change of pace from the the other final antagonists in the series.

      The orphanage is the best part. It's just extremely front-loaded to where it drags. If they better paced it, you wouldn't even need Kiryu in Tojo bullshit and could've had a comfy "we aren't letting Kiryu have a beard from 2's ending" story.

      It's why everyone hates 3: Kiryu didn't need to come back and that girl from 2 was his canon waifu that would never ask him for sex because Kiryu is canon Asexual.

        No they didn't. It wasn't the best ending, but he has government officials by the balls on a national scale after that ending. That's a pretty big achievement. Him being legally dead makes it less likely for people to harm Haruka to get back at him. The drawback is he can't touch his chinese sorta-grandson anymore or be with the Morning Glory kids, but they're nearing adulthood anyway. I think we all knew he wasn't going to die. There's no way they'd have him die against an enemy like Iwami.

      It would go terribly. Mine wouldn't be the big deal he is in 3 because that required Daigo to be there which means the Tojo Clan goes under due to them lacking the financing and even if it reaches the point of 4 Kiryu would never trade with the Ueno Seiwa Clan. He also specifically admits he doesn't approve of ripping people off or scamming them so it's very likely he'd shutter many of their moneymaking avenues.

          >Bowling has broken physics and makes the pins standing bricks that typically fall in place instead of actually rolling and knocking over other pins properly.
          On PC specifically people are still complaining about how hard the Tuna is to catch in fishing but I had zero issues on PS4 in 3R so I don't know if that's just a skill issue or a game issue.

          3R:
          >Quickstep is broken on all systems, either being too short or too far.
          I forgot which was which, I think PS4 was too short while PC and Xbone were too far?
          >Enemies with guns are completely broken and will not fire bullets normally. When they do eventually fire a bullet they will fire 2 bullets at the same time which means shotgunners can instantly kill you in one hit.

          >Enemy blocking frequency is seemingly double from what it was on PS3 which is noticable if you compare Hard or Ex-Hard/Legend between the versions.
          I can personally attest to this because I went from 3R Legend to my PS3 3 Ex-Hard save to check something and noticed enemies weren't blocking nearly as often.

          4R:
          >Apparently enemies grab way more.
          I don't remember enemies grabbing a lot in 4 myself but people were complaining about this a lot when it came out and as recently as a month or two ago.

          I only played 3R so far out of the remasters and am going off what people here said about 4R and 5R since release but 3R was a mess. This took me like four hours to do compared to five minutes on PS3.

      No, the only thing that got fixed was 5R's PC port specifically because it had a bunch of PC-exclusive issues at launch that caused a bunch of issues. They didn't touch any of the issues still present from the remasters being 60 FPS. PC can fix the quickstep distance but that's it and you still need to grab SilentPatch for them to fix some of the CPU utilization issues.

        Last time I was playing Y5, the amon fight glitched the fuck out. Kiryu's extreme heat mode kept switching on and off randomly and some hits were just phasing through the models without doing anything. I wonder if that was a PC exclusive thing.

      >something funky
      3 is borderline-unplayable because enemies exclusively block and rarely perform other actions. They can begin blocking while you're mid-combo and shut you out, or just alternate between blocking and taking damage in a nonsensical fashion. You need to mod the game unless you feel like literally tripling the length of your completion time.

      PS3 western Y3 is censored and literally missing content. Then again so is PC remaster 3. Not even mods can bring back everything removed

      The only true way to experience OG Y3 is emulating the original PS3 Japanese version

      Nah, unless you can read Japanese 3R is the best English experience of it. 4R is fine on PC with the restoration mod and the Quickstep mod, you're just gonna lose the original hostesses but that's not a big deal. 5R is up for debate since they did a retranslation that has incorrectly translated dialogue or OC rewrites that aren't there in JP so that doesn't reflect the rest of the script well.

      Oh, and another thing is that Shinada's one chase section in 5R is completely broken, I always forget that. You can finish it but it's not remotely how it was intended to be finished.

    is 5R the most not broken remaster on console? I played all these on PS3 so I'm surprised to hear all these issues on the ports.

          I had to use cheat engine to freeze the timer or else it ran out too fast despite me not stopping at all. I tried 3 times before I said fuck it. It would run out just before I'd get to the destination. Quite literally impossible.

        I don't remember any issues with completing a substory in 5R. It's the first game I did the Amon fight in. Maybe this was patched beforehand?

      I'd say it's 4R just because of the Shinada issue affecting both the main story and the ultimate mission.

    I get that the gameplay is separate from the story, but it makes no fucking sense for RGG to think anybody would be worried about Watase getting stabbed. That fucker was coming at him so slow, too. It was literally the least climactic way they could've introduced Kiryu again.

    I haven't tried Yakuza 7 DLC classes yet. Do any of them actually top Breaker in terms of how fun they are to play? Shame a good chunk of the cool classes don't seem viable for Amon.

      >in terms of how fun they are to play
      Matriarch has a bunch of gun moves that are pretty fun and one of the moves is pretty overpowered.
      Devil Rocker is pretty bad overall but it has a neutral all enemy attack you can get fairly early on and Vampirism is pretty decent on Normal.
      >Shame a good chunk of the cool classes don't seem viable for Amon.
      FMT Amon can have any job used against him. I think when I walked into FMT I was running with Hero (I), Bodyguard (A), Musician (H), and Hostess (S) since I was leveling them? There's not a single job that's bad on Normal, you can literally use an all Chef setup on Amon without much issue, all you need is the talisman that stops Ichiban from having Death work on him.

        Damn, I thought having an idol was pretty much a requirement. I'll try the fight once I get some more of those permanent stat boosts from job exp.

          Nah, if you want you can run Hero and have Ichiban heal everyone or go make those lunch bento things from Survive Bar. They heal the party for 500 HP and I think 500 MP for the best ones allowing you to ignore needing a healer on Normal at least. You can also summon someone for heals (I think the chicken or the donation girl?) and then Mr. Masochist gives the entire party multiple turns of invulnerability.

    Is it some sort of tradition that Yakuza don't get their tattoos colored in until after they climb up the ladder or something? Or was the lack of color on Kiryu's tattoo in 0 purely symbolic?

      Symbolic and I don't think you get tattoos done all at once, for big ones like Yakuza tats it's a multiday process.

    Is there some sort of dialogue in Yakuza 4 that suggests Arai was the one who taught Akiyama how to fight? I think there was one, but I swear I read every possible dialogue box in this playthrough and I couldn't find it.
