Finally getting going now that I've installed a new HDD in my PS3! I've noticed while running around Fukuoka, there is occasionally a little notification sound and the radar flashes pink. I figured it was something like the locker keys from previous games, but I looked all around and couldn't figure out what it was referencing or how to engage with it. Anybody know what's up with that? Sorry if it's been discussed before but I was avoiding spoilers so I haven't read the last page of this thread.

I think that's just the mini-map letting you know that you're in range of the target (in pink).

Yeah just means you're within range of your destination.

Nice review by the way, George.

Yakuza 5 could have been so much better. If the story was good, then I would have considered it the best. I give the storyline a four out of ten. Sega used some of the same story elements from the last Yakuza game. Yakuza 3 is still my favorite in the series by far.

I personally thought the story was a step up from parts 3 and 4 but still behind the plots of the first 2. (Kinda my thoughts on Yakuza 5 in general, actually.)

Anyone interested in my final thoughts on Yakuza 5 can check them out here;

I was surprised to see readable manga in the M convenience store... then I noticed Concept of Love was playing in the store!

The bars/poolhalls rotate various Sega music in the background too. I know one of them is the option screen theme for a game and it sounds great. I just can't for the life of me remember which game it's from.

Maybe I'll have a listen to the whole rotation and list out the ones I know, so that maybe someone here can trainspot the one I forgot.

Anyone seen Yu Suzuki displayed in one of the resteraunts? I think you see it after the first race against one of the devil killers.

I noticed that too and thought it was Yu Suzuki. Looks like he's holding a fish he caught, so I also thought it might be the Tuna King. But it sure looks like Suzuki.

Yeah this game has a ton of SEGA love in it. I also saw the photo and thought it was Suzuki.

So it wasnt just me then. The SEGA love is nice indeed. Its a pretty old game already with the late localization, but it feels i havent played a SEGA game like this in ages... Really digging this game.  My only gripe is probably a personal one. I like it when gameplay is constant for a long period time, but its in the nature of a narrative driven game like this. It feels like you go through a lot of pauzes in between everything that I sometimes get distracted
