  1. No, it means exactly what it says, as in any region that's not Japan. The symbols that looked like the rising sun flag in the original were altered in the remaster to avoid upsetting Chinese and Korean players, and I believe the 3 Michiru substories were removed because they were worried about a "controversy" in the west.
  2. It's a shame that the original Japanese PS3 release is the only true uncut and uncensored version of the game, all because people are too easily offended in the current year. The 3 removed substories were pretty amusing too. Of course we're still getting a much more "complete" version of Yakuza 3 than we originally did in the west, so I can't complain too much, but it still bothers me. The remasters were primarily made for "overseas fans", so I guess they wanted to cut anything that could cause far left game "journalists" in the west to write mean articles about it. The horror...
  3. Since I've heard nothing about this physical collection being available in Europe, I just decided to pre-order it off the NA Amazon. Better safe than sorry. I definitely don't want to miss my chance to own this collection!
  4. I got my first 4 Switch games. I don't actually own the console yet, though.
  5. My first 4 Switch games have arrived! I think it's a pretty good start to the collection. I've also got Gun Gun Pixies and Astral Chain pre-ordered. ^_^

    I don't even have the console itself yet, but it's inevitable at this point. A couple of years ago I was perfectly happy sticking to the PlayStation ecosystem because it had everything I wanted, but that was before Sony went crazy with the censorship which I absolutely despise. It's time to put my money where my mouth is and support a console that actually treats its userbase like adults. I never thought I'd say that about a Nintendo console, but here we are. I have not and will not support a lesser version of a game just because Sony deems its content inappropriate, but obviously that's not fair on the developers, so I will be buying these kinds of games on Switch from now on. :)

      You saw I was watching that, huh? :awesome: "Enjoying" it is somewhat of an understatement. :P I fell in love with the visual novel on PS4 last year, easily becoming one of my favourites. Now that enough time has passed since finishing the VN, I figured it would be a good time to watch the anime. It's amaaaaazing! :D I just finished the main series and it's the perfect example of a VN adaptation done right. I very much look forward to crying my eyes out watching After Story, lol. :P I wanted to own the game on Switch too, not only for the collection, but for when I inevitably want to replay it some day. VN's are much better on handhelds anyway.

       

      I'm still not sure when I'll get mine. If I see a good deal this upcoming Black Friday, I might go for it, or maybe I'll just wait for the next iteration of the Switch to come out. I know I should probably be more open-minded about Nintendo's first party titles. But hey, when both of us eventually get a Switch, maybe you can give me some recommendations of specific first party titles you enjoyed. :P

      Getting a Switch next month, but PS4 is my main console still. Have a number of titles already and getting Link’s Awakening and Dragon Quest XI. It’s ironic how Nintendo’s allowing uncensored games. Really want to shed the kiddie reputation.

      Been stalking your MAL profile every now and then :awesome: Glad to hear you're having a great time with it. The first season is pretty good in its own right but After Story is soooo much better. Like, crying-after-pretty-much-every-episode-kind-of-better lol :P I've been itching to rewatch the whole anime a third time now. Curiously enough, I've never played the VN despite hearing it's just as great. Need to address that at some point.

       

      Haha, that's a deal then. Will be sure to exchange opinions and recommendations with you when we both eventually get our Switch. ;)

  6. I decided to start Yakuza 1 HD today. It's a lot of fun so far! But the reason I wanted to make this status is because playing it reminded me of this funny commercial for the Wii U version of the game. The game deserved way more sales with this gem. 😂

      The dad is such a pushover for allowing his daughter to take over the TV in the middle of gameplay. If I did that to my dad, I would of got backhanded 🥺 There is also his wife butting into his game time. Hopefully Kiryu is teaching him valuable life lessons on how to take control of situations 😂

      He is quite the pushover, yes, but I believe finishing a Yakuza game has the same effect as watching JoJo's Bizarre Adventure or Fist of the North Star. It'll turn him into a gigachad - Kiryu will make sure of that! :awesome:

      I love how we know what's going despite not knowing iota of the language. I mean, no need for dubs or subs, I kinda made my own dialogues in my head lmao xD

  7. It's pretty disingenuous of them to keep saying how the remaster of Yakuza 3 restores all of the previously cut content, while at the same time cutting out substories that were in the original PS3 release... I just wish they would be more transparent about it. So is the physical collection only coming to North America? Because I can't see a European version listed anywhere, including on my country's Amazon.
  8. #277 - Alpha Protocol Platinum Earn All Trophies What an underappreciated gem of a game this is. It's an RPG by Obsidian Entertainment (creators of Fallout New Vegas) all about espionage. You travel to various locations across the world, sneaking past enemies, hacking computers, picking locks, making important decisions, etc, all in the pursuit of stopping World War 3. And yes, it is as awesome as it sounds. I love how in-depth it is. There's a levelling system that allows you to allocate skill points to fit your playstyle, you can acquire different perks depending on your choices and relationship with certain characters, and there's a wide selection of gear you can purchase and equip. You can make your Agent Thorton incredibly powerful with the right setup and it feels amazing when you pull it off! There's also quite a bit of camp/cheesiness in this game that I really appreciate. This game is a product of its time and I miss stuff like this. Honestly, this is some of the most fun I've had playing a game in a while. I look forward to Obsidian's next game, The Outer Worlds.
  9. Yeah, probably. I'd say that Yakuza 5 is my longest platinum yet, or at least it felt that way. It was quite demoralising to spend a whole day playing the game only for your in-game completion to raise by a fraction of a percentage. 😅 That's strange... I just assumed you'd be able to buy them separately (with the bundle including all 3 games being optional) but apparently not? Maybe they'll change that later down the line.
  10. Not exactly, but most platinums seem short when compared to the monster that is Yakuza 5's platinum.
  11. Since it hasn't been posted yet, this is the announcement trailer.
  12. They're not just good, they're great, especially Yakuza 5. Like I said earlier in the thread, it's one of the best games in the series. The only platinum I'd consider a bit of a nightmare is Yakuza 5, and that's down to the sheer amount of stuff you're required to do. It easily takes 150+ hours. With that said, you should absolutely play 3, 4, and 5 before you play 6, or else that game won't have the same emotional impact it should.
  13. It's really cool that they're including a PS3 case of Yakuza 5. Since it's a "very limited run", I'll have to pre-order as soon as I'm able to. I don't want to miss that chance to add this to my collection.
  14. I'm happy to see that we're getting a physical version with all three games. I want to see what that box art looks like.
  15. I assume you're just talking about mainline entries, because Dead Souls and Kenzan aren't. Even then, I wouldn't really consider the Kiwami games replacements for the originals when they're so different, and those aren't on PS4 either.
