What do you expect to see in the new Yakuza game? That is, if you haven't already played it...

All I know is that my ps3 is READY! Perfect time for a yakuza game. Tbh playing 3 and 4 straight after each other burned me out a lot in the middle of 4. But now after a while I really cant wait to finally dig back into it! AEGAGUAYEGAUEGAOPEJPAOIJEOAIJOIAFHAHFAIFUHAIHFIAFU

Dude, you can play Virtua Fighter 2 with an arcade stick peripheral.

Now that's fucking awesome.

Ive been excited for Y5 for so long. Im so curious about it and how it plays. I remember  y4 being very similar to 3. Heard people and also aki from here say that 5 improved more.

Btw is this the one with the haruka dances?

I think thats really the biggest part why this game will be a hard sell in the west. Not sure if people are gonna like that.

Me personally, I wasnt sure about it myself. Its not like ive never played a dancing game, but hope it to not be as frequent as the fighting battles.

I finally bought a PS3, despite owning some games for a while now: Valkyria Chronicles, Yakuza 4, Uncharted 1 & 2, Starhawk


After I make my way through a few of those... I can't wait to punch a bear and sing idol songs

Why does Japan get Yakuza 5 far before we do? It's unfair. I wish I could play it right now.

I am impressed with how complete the translation of Yakuza 5 feels...they made the effort to include big costum fonts and subtitle most of the little things.

I guess this is if the Yakuza Team always had the intent to work on a translation without any time constraints.

I finally got it downloaded last night... man, that download took a long time. Will install it this afternoon and hopefully be playing this evening!

Edit: I guess I should mention, I only started to download it in the evening... not like I started last week.  ;-D But yeah, I would guess it took about 5 hours to download. Not sure why... something up with the script kiddies ("Phantom Squad") attacking PSN?

It doesn't seem like there are recaps, which is kinda funny because with 3 years between the Japanese one and this one, it's by far the longest we've had to wait for a Yakuza game so I would have appreciated the recap lol.

That said, the game does a pretty decent job of catching you up with what you need to know. I know there are little bits and pieces I'm missing, but so far I seem pretty able to keep up.

I'm digging the game. Thoroughly enjoying it so far. Aspects of this series still seem incredibly limited, but at this point I'm liking this better than I liked parts 3 and 4. It's nice to feel absorbed into a game again, and Yakuza 5's story (again, so far) definitely drew me in.

Superb game... Superb. I'm only getting to play little bits at a time when I can borrow a friends PS3 but so far, loving it. Who would have thought that abiding the traffic laws could be so fun... It's a real interesting change on the usual racing in games.
