I hated it. I remember trying to beat the 3rd dumbass opponent and not have a heated gamer moment while my wife was trying to snooze.
I mean, It looks cool as hell though and as a kid, you couldn't beat the idea of actually playing fighting robots.

Was that the rubber bullets thing? That was so stupid it looped around and became hilarious and I loved it. If itís something else I donít remember because everything in that game that wasnít Saejima-related just slid off my brain completely

yeah. It's almos fjustified because of how it immediately cuts to the police chief looking at the report and going "this is loving idiotic why did you think this was a good idea, it's so dumb that the literal reason I know you're the mole is that I refuse to believe you fell for it"

its straight up fuckin retarded that saejima's guns were loaded with rubber bullets just so that bad guy could kill everyone himself. why would he do that, theres no reason except to make it so saejima never killed anyone. also his plan depends on saejima succeeding, why wouldnt he load the ueno seiwa's guns with rubber bullets too in case one of them got lucky and shot saejima in the head. completely fuckin stupid

For the first part, the excuse they gave was that he wanted everyone but the chairman and himself to die, so this way he could control who actually died while still having Saejima as the apparent gunman. For the second part yeah that was just unmitigated stupidity lol

i've beaten the third guy twice randomly but i have literally no idea what i do differently when i win or lose. sometimes i just get wrecked by the second robot before i can even hit him once and sometimes i roast him and near as i can tell i am doing exactly the same thing. i'm basically just button mashing one of the triggers and trying to point myself at the bad guy.

mahjong loving rules in kiwami 2, the little helpful notes on the tiles would have been great when i was still learning, you can control some of the rules if you want, the animations are glorious so that when you go out you feel like a boss, it's just a good time.

It's crazy how much stuff is hidden away behind side missions. The whole spearfishing job and baseball management career can be really easily missed in y6, I'm glad I found them. I've been playing MLB 2021 so the baseball manager mode has been a lot of fun.

The Majima part of the ending in 0 is the best scene I've seen of the whole series so far

hi c:


If you want a bad ending play Yakuza 5!

Then again, I witnessed someone in this thread saying it was great.

Maybe... in this world... different people like different things. Interesting. Am I on to something? Feel free to give me your thoughts and we can discover that phenomenon together.

the ending of 0 owns. i hope the series gets a prestige television adaptation so i can watch the scene where makoto demands the heads of dojima's lieutenants, and majima is just a moment too late.

it also gets better after playing kiwami, because it helps to set up the mirror between kiryu and majima: when the chairman explains to majima that he can't do what makoto asks because it's a debt that can never be repaid (and references saejima), it makes you empathize a little more with nishikiyama about his feelings of inadequacy compared to kiryu. in kiru's case, he's taking the fall for a murder he didn't even do, so nishiki is both taking the dark path that majima would have AND incurring the debt that mokoto would have, creating a permanent rift between him and kiryu.

hi c:


There's also this scene from the Ending of 0 that I found really entertaining it's when Kiryu puts on his gray suit with a dark red shirt underneath and Nishiki comments on how it looks like poo poo. I can't help but feel this is a direct response to that one interview with Yakuza members reacting to Yakuza 3 where they all trashed the suit.

i also felt that the ending of 0 was a letdown (finished it two days ago, my first yakuza game), but maybe that's just because the rest of the game owns so hard.

obviously Makoto demanding the lieutenants' heads is good, Kashiwagi showing up with the cavalry was also fun, Awano taking all the bullets for you kicks rear end, and the Lao Gui fight is good, but all that's the leadup! after that it kinda sputters out imo:

Shibusawa as the final boss was dumb and he was too easy after Lao Gui and ESPECIALLY after Kashiwagi in the prev chapter or w/e. he was hardest imo. also it sucks that Sagawa dies, I was hoping he would come back to torment Majima in the future, AND its dumb that Makimura doesn't recognize Majima AND that there's literally never an onscreen Majima-Kiryu conversation wtf

but for all that yeah 0 rules hard and I already started Kiwami

Well she does and she doesn't, she gets a pang of familiarity and knows she knows him from somewhere. But Majima stays silent the whole time because he knows he can't be a part of her life. It's a great scene!

Scythe posted:

There's that epilogue scene where Majima shouts at Kiryu just like in Yakuza 1, but yeah it sucks because there's no real bridge to it. P.S. Majima is fully jokerfied now. The end. Would've been better without it IMO

It is really weird that the two never meet up when the game teases it a lot, they know each other by the point of Y1 so it's not like it would have been an issue. It's funny as a reversal of expectations but not sure that's worth it
