    Yakuza 6 is out and is awesome.

    PS 4 exclusive.

    This looks to be GOTY for me.

    Finished it and it’s awesome.

    Reviews are good -

    Some history -

    https://www.gamespot.com/amp-articles/the-history-of-yakuza/1100-6456703/

    Good summary of the series.

    Yakuza 0 is a game made recently and does back story (looks like an end gen PS3 game) - PS4.

    Yakuza 1 was the first and on PS2, got a massive remake for PS4 last year (tech as in Yakuza 0)

    Yakuza 2 is getting a remake, currently PS2. http://www.engadget.com/amp/2018/03/18/yakuza-kiwami-2-western-release-date/

    Yakuza 2 drops August 29th.





    Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 are on PS3 - 4 and 5 look ok.

    Yakuza 6 actually looks incredible and has beautiful shots and it's engine is a massive development with a lot of seamless stuff - beyond that of GTA V. The world is not as big. Combat looks like more of same but streamlined.

    It's not a true open world like GTA V but it's open enough and sandbox enough. Crazy amount of additional activities and 'real' old games to play within the arcades. Lots of mean gritty yakuza crime testosterone posturing combined with Japanese zaniness.

    As stated Yakuza 2 is getting a Dragon Engine remake and dropping August 28th! http://www.engadget.com/amp/2018/03/18/yakuza-kiwami-2-western-release-date/

    A Yakuza 0 part 2 might be in development and Yakuza Shin (after Yakuza 6) without Uncle Kaz is definitely in development.

    https://www.dualshockers.com/yakuza-0-2-considered-shin-yakuza-details/amp/

    Added features to Yakuza 6 include a clan game with New Japan Pro Wrestlers, Okada of course is the big boss and an appearance by Beat Takeshi, Yakuza film legend.

    Yakuza is also coming to PC. Yakuza 0 and 1.

    Now on a high end PC, that’s going to look awesome.

    Yakuza is my favorite current game series. I'm buying the collector's edition for 6, which I never usually do.

    Can't (wait) to run my gang with Toru Yano.

    Edit because I'm sketchy.

    Man I still need to play Yakuza 0. I started it but something else was coming out so I returned it to gamestop (it was used). I went back to get it this weekend and the gamestop website lied to me the store didn't have it. Only the mall location had it and I'd rather kill myself than go there. This weekend I'm going to go pick it up I have nothing to play just been running games of Smite online since I also got rid of PS+.

    Scratch that I'm picking that shit up today after work.

    6 will be (or is) the first true current gen Yakuza. Boxy combat replaced with fluidity and a reacting environment. Here hopes all side quests are voiced.

    Pretty sure side quests will not be voiced because they’re not in the Japanese. And anyway there won’t be English dubbing.

    That's a shame. I felt it was the one thing missing in the series. The side stuff was well thought out, but it gets tedious reading through walls of text.

    Yep continued were I left off from last time I played. Remembered most of the story already. Just trying to make it through the semi-intro part which I hate in these kind of games. They always try to force all these side stuff on your just so you know how to do them and I personally hate all that stuff and just like to go through the main story.

    Still need to finish Yakuza 0 - got about 1/4 of the game left. Just haven't been very into gaming the last few weeks. Hopefully Y6 will snap me out of that.

    I've been the same way not really into gaming other than my Switch at work during lunch. I've been enjoying Yakuza 6 though it's pulled me back in. Ready for this weekend with some tequilla and pizza and fucking some people up.

    Meanwhile Rockstar with 100 times the resources and a billion dollar money drip from GTA Online can’t finish RDR2 on time.
