  1. I forgot if the timer ran or not in the pause menu but I believe it took me 75-80 hrs. Though keep in mind that I played Yakuza 0 before that and so I was already familiar with everything. If this is your first Yakuza then add 10-15 more hrs maybe. Honestly it's skill dependant so who knows you can even finish it faster than I did.

    Incredible incredible game. Feeling like there's an empty void now that it's over..

     

    Thinking of going after the FFXV online I think or booting spiderman ps3 or maybe jump into yakuza dead souls. We'll see.

      Great job! You should continue with more Yakuza!

      Thanks everyone! :)

       

      @Honor_Hand @Rantaro hmm you guys think so? :hmm:. I wanted to jump immediately but I think it's longer than Yakuza Kiwami 2 and that took me 1 month and 2 weeks to get through with the pace I'm going at xD so I might wait it out when I get free. Not to mention I think I want to space them out evenly so that I don't end up waiting for soo long for Yakuza 3 to drop by on ps4 since it doesn't even have a release date yet for NA :/

       

      But yea I actually played a little FFXV yesterday night and in the tutorial training room to get myself reacquainted with the moves so that I can tackle the online before the server shut down. 

       

      I'm not going to lie I kind of disliked initially going back to it but this game actually kicks all sorts of ass. Reminded me of how good the music was and the interaction between the characters. Brought back great memories :)

       

      Oh and dont worry honorhand :). I wouldn't put a spoiler out of the blue like that. Even for small references because imo they add to the overall quality to the game. 

       

      But yea thanks again everyone!

  3. #113 Yakuza Kiwami 2 A beautiful masterpiece like yakuza 0 it was. Story was full of twists and memorable reveals and the beautiful ending almost had me in tears 😤. The added majima saga was the cherry on top and I really love how the devs gave us the majima saga and you could tell playing it that it was a fan service and I had a huge grin on the entire time. With every yakuza game that I have played so far there's always this enigmatic character that steals the show and for me it was Kawara! His smug face gives him lots of character appeal much like Awano from yakuza 0 lol As for the substories I applaud the team for going back to the comedic route since yakuza 1 was a little more on the serious side. One thing you gotta know is that Kiryu in substories is not the same as Kiryu in the main story . So many shits and giggles were had from doing photo shoots , being in a photo shoot , lending your sexy voice to a producer and many more . There were also many references to yakuza 0 which I did not expect like this one. I was laughing the whole time hahaha. And then there's the cabaret club and Majima construction. Oooo boy. I feel like I spent as much time in those as the main game hahah. The depth that those side activities receive is phenomenal and honestly they can almost be a standalone game if given more options perhaps. In terms of the plat difficulty, it was the easiest that I have played so far and I didn't even need a guide! Then again playing yakuza 0 and kiwami 1 before that gave me lots of experience that everything is just second nature by now. They also toned down on the minigame point requirements although they ramped up the mahjong requirement which for some people might be a turnoff but I actually enjoyed mahjong a lot! The music that plays in the shop was surprisingly good/relaxing as if you're at a calm cafe with some relaxing music. So much so I would just randomly boot the game after a long day from campus for like an hour and I was slowly making progress. Finally I wouldn't finish it off before showing some of my favourite tracks. Seriously though the devs always nail it with those tracks 🎧🤘. Took me more than a month to finish it because of how busy I've been but was totally worth it. Bring on Yakuza remastered 3 Sega!
  4. Black Friday PSN sale

     

    The $50 ps plus subscription looks interesting compared to the $70 one and Wolfenstein II deluxe for $36 also seems interesting. (Won't go for the plat probably but I want to try it out!)

      @LuciaRosethorn @DamagingRobclose :p. We don't have digital tax but that's just the CAD dollar for you. 

       

      I think I'm only going to pick-up the ps plus deal and holy crap that's a lot 😂 @ruffedgz mine finishes 2019 Sept I think so im extending it to 2020 Sept. Though I might not renew after but we'll see! For now I have some time to play but I imagine it's going to get less and less as I progress through my degree.

      The song choice was a fitting imo and maybe it was weird but to be honest I was so enthralled by just what happened and the song just got toned out in the background.  

       

      And damn that was beautiful. 

       

      I might do the legend playthrough and leave the Majima saga for last.

    3. Rantaro

      Rantaro

      Ah man, I can't wait to get into Yakuza but that backlog! 

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Ahh yes the eternal backlog xD

       

      And yea and not to mention Yakuza Kiwami 1 is now free for everyone to experience!

       

      I just freaking love the series and I'm glad I bought Yakuza 0 which started it all. 

       

      I think I'm going to play Yakuza dead souls, or purchase fist of the North star or maybe play the ps3 spiderman after i get the plat. Though I'm leaning more towards Yakuza. Just can't get enough!

  6. It is something that took me a while to understand but now I actually enjoy it. (lol I have to because Yakuza Kiwami 2 has a win 30 matches using ron or tsumo). But it was something that I definitely did not get in 1 day. I would play this game in short bursts in between activities also to break the initial overwhelming feeling. First time I played it, I just kept referring back and forth to the different possible melds as well as to memorize the symbols which takes time so all I can say is be patient. Finally you won't learn much without playing and reading theory and that goes for any minigame. So just play over and over, using trial and error and eventually you'll start to catch on pretty quickly. Imo one of the things that immensely helped me was after every defeat, I'd look at the AI's hand to see how did they win and then trying to formulate a certain pattern in my brain on how to win myself in the future.
  7. Just wrapped up the cabaret in Yakuza Kiwami 2 along with all of the substories. 

     

    What's left is a few coliseum matches, about 3 mahjong matches, some bouncer missions, legend playthrough, Majima storyline and the plat is mine :) so I reckon about 15-20 more hrs. 

     

    Speaking of the cabaret, this is one of my favourite references/ throwbacks to yakuza 0 xD

    Holy shite! Just had a fangirl moment in the Cabaret grand prix. :lol: I freaking love how the devs treated their fans who played Yakuza 0. Was laughing/ mesmerized the entire time after I beat the millionaire league.

      Oh Pooblast-chan did you miss Majima in carbnet club lol. All jokes aside it was really nice that Majima came back for it I think it wraps up Yuki story well (also Yuki going back into being one of the girls was awesome).

       

    2. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Hahahha xD

       

      Majima is so hilarious in the commentary. My goodness! That and when Yuki became a hostess it felt so satisfying. And the look on kiryu-chan's face was hilarious when he saw Majima stepping in and Yuki in a dress. Lol the 3 dialogue options were:



      Stunning

      Stunning

      Stunning

      And that's exactly how I felt xD

       

  9. I can confidently say that Yakuza Kiwami 2 is a better one than Kiwami although there are some aspects or things that I enjoyed more in Kiwami 1.(i.e the combat) But to me 0 is still the undisputed king. There wasn't a single moment in that one where I was a little bored. And the story is just something that's going to be incredibly hard to be beat. I just need to finish the last mission in Kiwami 2 and so far it was better than the first but it's just a little below 0 Then again we're comparing a giant game with 2 characters vs a game with one character only and that's about half the length. I forgot to mention that I didn't play Majima's saga yet so there's still some story left and so I suppose it's a little premature to decide right now. Honestly they're all fantastic. Doesn't matter what they do so long as the narrative remains focused and I can just treat all the games in the series as one long game. Game on! 👊
  10. Easy to say when you're not on the receiving end or in this case, lack thereof.
  11. That song is the trolliest song Starts off deceptively easy hahah. Hated it at first but now it's one of my favs hahah
  12. As a fan of this game, this is just hilarious :lol:

      Hahah The original one had both of them posing intimidatingly for good reason but then they lost in a huge upset. One of the craziest moments in the UFC. Ronda being kicked in the face by Holly Holm ( lol imo it felt satisfying because of how arrogant Ronda was being) and Connor Mcgregor being choked out by Nate Diaz on a short notice fight.

      Oh I see. Ronda Rousey now inducted into the Hall of Fame. Never knew she was that arrogant because she kinda turned into an angel in WWE, but that doesn't mean you should provoke her. She now smiles a lot and then changes that face into a hungry monster. I don't know how the hell she does that so instantly. That choking move on Connor McGregor looks so familiar. 

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      She was a superstar in UFC and nobody expected Holm would beat her. 

       

      As for McG that's a rear naked choke. 

  13. Not gaming related but this made me laugh like a madman hahhahahahha :lol:

      Lol, Emile Ratelband. A person everyone from our country should be ashamed of. But he’s just doing this to get some attention again. 😔

      He got ‘famous’ for correctly predicting a soccer match a gazillion years ago 😂

      Hahaha if he wants to get a tinder date then why not be a sugar daddeh. He's an entrepreneur so he must be a little loaded xD

       

  14. Yakuza Kiwami 2

     

    Finished Haruka's requests today (that child is very needy xD<3) and hopefully I'll be done everything soon. (By soon I mean within a few weeks :lol:). 

     

    Have about 2-4 completion items left unchecked in each category so I'm not that far off. Then I need to wrap up the final chapter, finish on legend difficulty and then start the Majima saga. 

     

    Kinda sad it's coming to a close but at least I bought me Yakuza dead souls from the Halloween sale so my journey might continue ;)

      Hoho! We have a new fan! 0 is honestly one of the best games I've ever played. 

       

      But yea same here. I actually bought 0 first as a digital copy but then after that I went out and bought a physical one because I planned on collecting the entire series :)

       

      Hahaha well I haven't watched anything RDR 2 related to avoid spoilers but if he's anything like John from RDR 1 then I'm happy man. 

    3. LegacyJKO09

      LegacyJKO09

      0 is the longest one isn't it? I'm thinking buying them all in order. but in regards to 3 and 4 I may pass and wait to see if NA gets a remaster or if it gets a kiwami treatment 

    4. PooPooBlast

      PooPooBlast

      Yea it took me ~140 hrs to 100%!

       

      And yea playing them in order is the right way to do it. While each of the stories are separate entities, they still reference past events a lot and gives you incentive to as to why you should care about a certain character. 

       

      And yep I'm doing the same :). Will just wait for the Kiwami treatment before I purchase all the yakuzas! (For the main titles that is as I highly doubt they'll remaster dead souls for example).
