    Damn. They have Yakuza 3 special edition reduced down to 27 on Zavvi.co.uk

    I dunno whether to get it. I have only heard good things about this game. But with XIII and Heart Gold yet to finish and with Assassin's Creed 2 and White knight Chronicles on the way (Again. Both cheap at Zavvi for limited time.) I dunno whether to bother or not :(

    I just replayed the demo of Yakuza 3, this time in English.
    I really would like to rent this game.

    Then after that I played the demo of Yakuza 4.
    Shit! There was so much talking... of course, I barely understood a damn thing besides familar phrases.

    Just spent $18 on Yakuza 2. That took a bit of a hit after having just spent $50 on LBP: GOTY, Beyond Good and Evil, and PS2/Wii component cables.

    Regardless, I say I'm a happy camper once I get over my buyers remorse. I always suffer buyers remorse when I spend money, but it wears off in a day or two.

    I just beat the game-
    Clocked around 30 hours having completed 47% of the game's content @_@
    Overall I really enjoyed the game and the story was OK, though I shed manly tears over
    Spoiler:
    RIKIYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
    WHY DAMNIT WHY! FUCK THE MISSING SUBSTORIES, RIKIYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    Oh and those complaing about removed substories/minigames are a bunch of over-exaggerating dumbasses.

    GameStop fucked me with Yakuza 2 like they originally did Yakuza 1. Except this time the game just flat won't read and they have no more copies to replace it with. I spent the whole afternoon toothpasting the damn thing, no change.

    Anyone notice just how creepy the PS2's "Please insert a PlayStation or PlayStation 2 disc" error screen is?

    I was annoyed they removed Mahjong since I took the time learn how to play it (and love it) for the previous games. Now I've got Hanafuda down, they'll probably remove it for Yak4 if they bring it over.

    Anyways, got mini-game master last night. Now THAT'S what I call a real gold trophy.

    You learned Mahjong so you can play them in a video game?
    ...and so what if they remove Hanafuda? It's not like it'll change the game or anything.

    Meh, catch a Tuna and I'll be more impressed.

    Apparently Haruka's trust level RESETS in premium game mode =_=, oh well at least I got her a kitty...even though she's gonna ask for another one (in which case UFO CATCHERS ARE A FRIGGIN' SCAM)

    Sure, why not? Mahjong was tied to a sub-story and overall game completion and making some real good bank and getting some rare items. Was reason enough for me and hey! I know Mahjong IRL.

    ...and so what if they remove Hanafuda? It's not like it'll change the game or anything
    Well fuck, they could probably remove a whole hell of a lot of miscellaneous side activities and not change the core game all that much, sure, they could strip it down real good for us slack-jawed yokels. But they could at least try have some freakin' content continuity between sequels and not cherry pick stuff to throw out of previous games based on their perception that their fans are a bunch of ten year old drooling morons who can't be exposed to oriental card games and well covered bar maids, OH NO it's just too Japanese.

    Ur.... well, catching a tuna is fishing, which is a mini-game, which you have to complete in order to get a chance to get that mini-game master trophy. So yes, I caught that fish, with not a lot of difficulty if I might add. :)

    Well at least you play it IRL, but one wouldn't need to learn how to play any of the gambling or board games in Yakuza to beat them; they could just learn as they play or just go at it randomly (which is what I do with Koi Koi at least).
    Does it take a lot of time to get the completion rate for the gambling and board games BTW? Someone I chat with got all trophies in Y3 within 100 hours.

    I don't think exposure to oriental culture is the reason; there's enough of the Japanese culture that you can see in the English version and previous games. hell one of the substories requires you to buy 'dugwai', which is Okinawan for Aloe, and there are other Japanese culture stuff in it.
    If they remove it then it's prob. due to time constraints, I doubt they'd do it due to oriental culture exposure (I mean for fuck's sake the entire game is exposure to Japanese culture, you won't be losing much by the removal of a few things).
    Hell they left in Hanafuda and other mini games that would seem too confusing for non-Japanese players, but even then they could just ignore doing them and focus on the game's main plot, and they wouldn't have missed out on anything.
    I'm doing a premium new game now to try and get all substories, but if I find that some require playing those gambling games...eh I'll see if I'm in the mood to beat them.

    Then for catching the Tuna I praise you good sir =3 ...but only for catching the Tuna.

    For the games of chance, yeah, you could probably play it blind with low level wagers until you hit big, especially if you're using special items to assist. But for Koi-Koi you probably couldn't get away with outside of a beginner or intermediary levels.

    Does it take a lot of time to get the completion rate for the gambling and board games BTW?
    If you know the games already, probably not. You could get all down within two hours. Casino stuff is simple (Blackjack, roulette, Texas hold'em) Koi-Koi is probably hardest of them all, but probably the best to play and can nab you the biggest winnings and get that 'walking bank' trohpy early on.

    Someone I chat with got all trophies in Y3 within 100 hours.
    Yeah, sounds about right if they were following a guide fairly closely. But My OCD arse is going for completion across the board (which is outside most of most of the trophy stuff) so I'm verging on nearly 70 hours already on my first playthrough. BUT I'll get a lot of rare goodies for that completion and bring it over to my 'Hard EX' play through and basically stroll through it.

    I don't think exposure to oriental culture is the reason; there's enough of the Japanese culture that you can see in the English version and previous games. hell one of the substories requires you to buy 'dugwai', which is Okinawan for Aloe, and there are other Japanese culture stuff in it.

    That was Sega's official response last month. Which would be fair enough, if they were following the Japanese release fairly closely or they were trying to hit a certain sales period (Seems like they sent it out to die anyway -- day and date with FFXIII, really?) but considering it's been more than a year on since that release, it's a tough pill to swallow, for me at least.

    I'm happy it made it over and that Sega US gave it a chance. But still, I'm not entirely happy with some of their localisation decisions, being a long time fan of the series.

    Beat 1... after having the ending spoiled when I tried to test my copy of 2, which I got two dud copies prior. Oh well, two (possibly three) more games to make me forget about that.

    I also found the perfect "in b4 the lock" in this game and hereby demand its posting in all doom threads from this point forward.

    Many didn't think it was going to happen, but it is. Sega has announced it's releasing Yakuza 4 in the states and Europe in 2011. This was due to how well Yakuza 3 sold in the states, actually topping what Yakuza and Yakuza 2 sold. They also took in the content removal criticism for what they did in Yakuza 3, and they will not be removing any content from Yakuza 4. Except for the Japanese Pop Culture test, which they kinda have no choice but to do.

    Hostess Clubs are being left in 4.

    And thus Greg will support it. My virgin journey with Yakuza. I hope it goes gentle.

    Thankfully it's just a side game, like the previous unnumbered PS3 title which took place in the samurai-era. So no worries about this being Yakuza 4 or anything like that.
