  1. Platinuming it feels like
  2. Did this today after too many tries to mention. The method I used is the AA12, usp 45 method. I tried M9, D.Eagle and the best I could get was 21.25, did this for about 3hrs with little joy. Switched to AA12 shotgun and usp and did it in about 1 hr 30 (took a while to get the layout after trying the other method for so long). Stating the obvious and what others have said before....you need a little luck with the pop ups but I did the following Sprinted into the opening and shot first guy on left Doubled the next two, sprinted. The next two were close together so was able to quickly take out with one shot each, sprinted. Doubled the guy in front and the guy in the building. One shot each for roof guys and the guy in the door way Switched to usp Took out the guy as he popped on the left of the civilian (he can be the othe side also) Doubled the 2 on the right. Up stairs and meleed The guys on the left were doubled (they don't always overlap) Doubled the guys on the right. Jumped down Doubled the first guy and the guy behind him. Ran to the right Doubled the next two. Ran to the left Doubled the final two. Sprinted to the end Time - 27.5 160% accuracy Total time - 19.5 Trophy popped immediately The video below does this method (better than I) and worked better than the other method for me.
  3. Worth playing but not as good as their other bullet hell games. Some aspects were quite difficult and required playing repeatedly.
  4. Remade 'from the ground up' and out on PS4/PS5 in February!!! Day 1 purchase https://www.polygon.com/platform/amp/23351991/like-a-dragon-ishin-ps5-remake-yakuza
  5. Ok then....because for some reason you won't let it go.....'no more games, I can be bothered to complete without reading a English pdf translation, which is definitely not a normal thing by the way, to conquer' We good now?
  6. I don't have a PS3 to play it on nor do I speak Japanese
  7. .....I didn't as either it or Kenzan and Dead Souls are not available to me (hence no more available Yakuza series games....). Waiting for RGG to realise loads of people would buy them if they re-released them or remastered them. Tough question. I genuinely love them all........probably Kiwami 2 closely followed by 0.
  8. Just replaying Kiwami 2 now....done the karaoke minigame in one sitting in Sotenbori, each one done first time: Euro de x3 Shine - 100 - rank 1 X3 Shine - 99.79 - rank 2 TONIGHT - 99.59 - rank 3 As Long As You're Happy - 99.36 - rank 5 Otometal MY LIFE - 99.35 - rank 6 Pride From Despair - 98.82 - rank 9 Like A Butterfly - 95.78 - rank 28 ring - 95.60 - rank 54 So there we are. Otometal is not even the hardest song in this game. Even with some missed notes, I was still comfortably above 90. I've done mahjong for people before so if someone is still, for some reason, having difficulty with this let me know and I'll happily do it for you/show you how easy it is
  9. It was first released on Windows so probably was designed for a mouse and keyboard. 9.55% of players seem to have overcome this handicap however and platted it so, you know, it isn't that big a deal. In terms of overrated, each to their own, it's a perfectly good top down shooter with some difficult (but not as difficult as some people make out on this particular thread) parts to it and a story that was weird enough to gain cult status. I enjoyed it a lot and the sequel. I do find it somewhat humourous however, that people shout it's overrated but then state several of the most genuinely overrated games of all time as more 'worthy' games, GTA5 and realistic horse testicle simulator RDR2.
  10. It's not overly difficult if you've played other Yakuza games. I always say this...CyricZ is the man when it comes to guides for these games. The VF requirements are not onerous, Shogi can be cheesed with a cheat item in the game that, whilst slow, will guarantee you win every time. The challenges can be googled. Mahjong is a different kettle of fish. Many complain about it, some (including me) love it. It can be tricky to get the hang of. I include the specific aspect of the guide below. Read, understand, read and read again and then give it a go. Even if you are good at it, you will still lose a bit because of the game's random number generator not being in your favour. Ultimately, you'll either like it or you wont but every mainline Yakuza/Judgment game has it so you better get used to it! 😀 https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/ps4/320117-lost-judgment/faqs/79566/mahjong Below is a post of mine from a different thread relating to mahjong Mahjong - If you are not familiar with this there can be a steep learning curve. You essentially have to learn what makes up a valid sequence of tiles and rely on luck, skill and the RNG to meet all the requirements and become somewhat familiar with the Japanese terminology (Ron, Tsumo, Riichi etc). If you've ever played Rummy or Gin Rummy, the concept is somehwat similar. To put it simply, you need 4 groups of 3 tiles (either 3 of the same suit (3-3-3, 4-4-4 etc) or sequential tiles e.g. (1-2-3, 4-5-6 etc) or a mix of the two and one group of 2 (4-4,7-7 etc) to finish the hand but there are other ways to achieve it (7 pairs for example where yoh have 7 sets of 2 matching tiles). How things play out will depend on if you try to build your hand youself through the tiles you draw or those you steal (pon, chi)from others...if you do steal, your ability to finish a hand is reduced as when you steal your hand is no longer 'concealed' meaning the number of hands you can finish on is reduced. This is where a lot of players come unstuck because they steal and end up not being able to complete a hand because they can't achieve a han (or scoring hand). If this is you, try to play without stealing as it will complicate the process and aim to build the sets through the tiles you draw. A useful tip is to press the Square button after each tile you draw, if you have a hand where only one tile is needed, a prompt to declare 'Riichi' will pop up. When doing this, you're presented with the tiles you need in a small menu on the left hand side of the screen. Once activated the game auto plays until someone else wins or the tile you need pops up either from someone else (Ron) or you draw it (Tsumo). The idea here is to discard the tile that gives you the greatest chance of winning. The screen will tell you how many of each tile you need is still in play, the object would be to pick the option that has tje greatest chance of winning e.g the most tiles with highest numbers attached to them. 'In play' could either mean the tiles are in the communal deck to be drawn or in other player's decks. It comes down to luck. Bear in mind, no matter how good you are, sometimes you will be shafted by the RNG. In the games that allow you to save within the mahjong parlour, take advantage of this.....if the tiles don't fall your way, reload and try again. Trust me, as someone with 11 platinums across the Yakuza and Judgment series where Mahjong has been in it, in the end you will get the completion requirements if you persevere. The easiest method is to put the red dora setting on. This adds some red 5 tiles to the deck and this counts as a dora (1 han) e.g. allows you to finish a hand). Also try to build a 3 tile set of winds (N,S,W,E) or Dragons (White = blank, Red = Red symbol, Green = Green Symbol). A set of 3 matching winds or dragons = 1 han and means you can finish a hand if you can get 3 further sets of 3 and a pair. It sounds a lot more complicated then it actually is. I find the below to be an incredibly useful resource when playing Some games in the series contain a Lucky Mahjong Tile cheat item which you can find or sometimes buy which will give you an instant win though these can be hard to find or require specific actions to achieve and normally only appear once or twice in the games they appear in. The requirements for Mahjong depend on the game but routinely, you'd have to win a number of times at the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced tables winning numerous hands as you go.
  11. Judgment Shinpan and 24 Hour Cinderella are possibly my favourites alongside Otometal.....Always liked how much Majima was into Rouge of Love in Zero Tonight from Kiwami and Today is a diamond are also standouts, the latter because the impossibly chirpy video and fun theme doesn't match the lyrics at all. Baka Mitai is great especially because of the different characters who can pop up. I always found it particularly funny that Kiryu is singing Baka Mitai whilst thinking of Pocket Circuit Fighter 😅
  12. One of my favourite songs in the series, didn't really cause any trouble at all for me. Replaying them all at the moment so looking forward to playing it on both Kiwamis again
  13. Ah ok. Apologies I wasn't aware....there was a compliment in there though as you've clearly platted a lot of difficult games and have 120 more than me despite that challenge. 👍
  14. Some of these were quite popular 'back in the day', Virtua Fighter especially so it makes sense that they are included. I understand the frustration around lack of info etc maybe RGG assume that people will remember/know them (especially in the Japanese market) but if I'm honest, none of them require any real strategy to play and complete the requirements for. Virtua Fighter, Sonic the Fighters and Fighting Vipers can all be spammed extremely easily if you know the way to do it. E.G. Vanessa's back+kick+kick move which destroyed every character in Virtua Fighter 5 or Jeffry McWild with L2 in Virtua Fighter 2 in Yakuza 5. It just takes a little bit of time and a little bit of luck. As an aside, I do find it a little bit humourous that you did Puyo Puyo in the first Judgment and you have platted many games people consider to be difficult but struggled with Fighting Vipers 😅
  15. I've done the completion for this 4 times (PS4 & 5 versions of both Judgment and Lost Judgment). Exactly the same method every time. Select Bahn - spam forward and press Triangle or X for punch. It took about 20 mins for each version.
