About This Club

A place to talk about a series I enjoy and to meet other fans of a series I love.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. So I found an amazing summary and history of Yakuza on YouTube. They got everything right which suprised me. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UitUl6o1ALU So if anyone is interested in a summary on the series feel free to give it a go. It doesnt really spoil much it's a basic summary.

    Yakuza OST topic

    Ok got me there. However its only good because of how out of place Majima is for this. That song was originally meant for Haruka. The reason Majima is involved in it is because come on only Majima could get away with it. And btw get to the top is from Yakuza dead souls. That game wow its the only zombie shooter that is so over the top i adore it.

    Yakuza OST topic

    I respec your opinion and I like the song. BUT... This one is simply the one and only and got a special place in my heart I memorized it even tho I did not play any Yakuza game. I guess it's cuz of that epic guy Majima.

    Yakuza OST topic

    Those were unexpectedly good!
  7. Since I only play Yakuza PSP version and a little of the first one I know a lot about OST and wanted to make topic to exchange couple fav songs. This one here is probably the best one I heard aside from the "Fierciest Warrior" mixes. I saw the fight only to not spoil the game much but I already like that boxer. He have really nice moves and combes that I had to customize Steve in Tekken to look like Han. Also this one here is really nice too and it's too one of my favs. We could go on and exchange the coolest songs from the series here. I wonder what are your favorites fellas.
  8. If they ever release a patch for those PsP games i would definitely love to check them out. But im more likely gonna learn Japanese before that happens.

    Yeah movie is probably related to game just in basic terms and nothing more complicated for you to spoil the game experiance but I'm not sure 100% since I did not see it. There are also Kurohyo: Ryu Ga Gotoku series. It's a series based on Yakuza from PSP with the same hero as in PSP games. Since I did not watch it either and it's full japanese I'm not sure on what is it about but probably it sheds more light on the side story from PSP seriers rather than the main seriers of the games. I think that it's pretty good to watch if you know Ching Chong Nip language.

    Nah, I say go with the game. The movie is probably just fan service to those who enjoyed the game anyways.
  11. Honestly thats your choice because its a very very condensed plot. While the actual game is more detailed answers more questions and fills in plot holes its a matter of preference really.

    @Axeo30Do you think I should wait for the game before watching the movie?
  13. Its a great series I cannot recommend enough. Its amazing a great story with an amazing amount of emotions. One moment youll be sad cause of a death and the next laughing at a hilariously over the top subquest. And angry at the villain its amazing how it can suck you in to the narrative.

    Thanks to it coming on the PC I can finally see what this series is all about.
  15. So i didnt know this and somehow it doesnt suprise me. But there is a Live action Yakuza movie called Like a Dragon. Its cheesy as far as movies go but its in all the right ways. Its a condensed plot of the first Yakuza game. Came out in 2007 and if you look it up on Youtube it has english subs.
  16. Well I dont speak or read Japanese. So I havent been able to play them. I am in the process of learning very slowly and once im more fluent those will be the ones ill be playing for sure. Might even once i have the knowhow do a fan translation of Kenzan.
  17. How about Yakuza Kenzan and Yakuza Ishin and Yakuza series on PSP what can you say about those @Axeo30?
  18. Haha tbh i just ate my words before coming here just now. I found the trailer on my feed and i feel like an idiot lol. And yes it looks amazing. Not to mention you play as freaking Majima again. I love his fighting style from Yakuza 0. Plus they added in the tower defense minigame from Yakuza 6 that has me hyped and Majima still gives me chills with his ridiculous over the top entrance in the arena. If y'all ever get the chance find a best of Majima compilation on youtube there is alot of funny bits that'll get your sides splitting.
  19. I didn't really pay much attention to gaming news the past week, until yesterday. But I know Sega wouldn't be dumb enough to miss out on this opporunity. It looks like Sega is advertising Kiwami 2 as much as it should. It would be hypocritical if it didn't since they also announced remakes of 3 to 5 to be released periodically in the next 6 months. There was a booth with demo of the game at E3, and they've also released live gameplay footage less than a day ago: Though I'd still be excited if I saw another trailer. I've seen this a few days ago, and it was fire:

    Yakuza is Coming to PC!

    Yeah, thought the photo was a good reaction~
  21. So im a bit disappointed and anyone here can correct me if im wrong. I was watching the Sony press conference and I saw on the schedule beforehand they'd have a new trailer for Yakuza Kiwami 2. Sadly it never showed. I even tried Youtubing it to see if it showed. Honestly I feel sega dropped the ball here. Yeah its just a remake but to me its alot more. This will be the first of the remakes to use the Dragon engine from Yakuza 6. So I have high hopes for it. Plus the story is Solid, despite popular opinion. I have been playing it on PS2 and im looking forward to August when it comes out.

    Yakuza is Coming to PC!

    No kidding? Im glad to hear that. More exposure for the series is sorely needed. And trust me youll love it. The game explains alot in zero. And sets up the first Yakuza flawlessly. Oh and welcome okanmiyaki-chan. Btw Bakura thats a screenshot from Yakuza 6. Haha id know Onomichi-kun anywhere.
  23. Okonomiyaki-Chan

    Yakuza is Coming to PC!

    I already pre-ordered Yakuza 0. I played a bit of Yakuza on my PS2 but as I sold that recently I am super excited to see that Yakuza 0 and Kiwami are coming to PC.
  24. So Sega announced they will bringing a bunch of games to the PC. Starting with Yakuza 0, followed by Kiwami and Valkyria Chronicles 4. Yakuza 0 will be hitting Steam This first of August, with 4K resolution (which I don't care about). With a price tag of $20, hopefully this move will help them succeed in exposing the series to a wider player-base.
  25. When playing a new series its always good to have a starting point. And im going to give my opinion on where to start. Everyone has their opinion on where to start in a series and heres mine. Everyone who is interested to join can submit there take as well. Because imo i believe this series should be recognized more and not just as a gta clone. Anyways the best point to start is Yakuza 0 it is a prequel to the series and focuses on two different protagionists who are mainstays to the series Kazuma Kiryu a young low level Yakuza for the Tojo clan. And Goro Majima a former Member of the Shimano family. You get to see where it all started how the characters came to be and their motivations. The mini games are fun and the combat is easy to use. The game itself really paints a realistic picture of the bubble era of Japan in the 1980s. Its for the PS4 currently and reasonably priced since it was only released last year.
  26. A trailer to better explain my point. The series Yakuza was created by Sega in 2005. The series focuses on the Protagionist Kazuma Kiryu and his various hardships. He is a former member of the Yakuza specifically the Tojo clan. He tries his best to lead a normal life but things with him never seem to be ordinary. The gameplay is open world with the main mechanic being a stylistic beat em up with rpg style progression. To this date there are seven main games in the series with the sixth releasing 13 days ago. It spans across the ps2 ps3 and ps4 with remakes of the first two in hd for the ps4. If anyone has questions about the characters the plot or any of the combat or are interested in the series ask here id be happy to answer
