Collectors are the morons who buy and keep games they don't like just to have it right?

Aren't you the dude who keeps buying Sonic games and posting diatribes on video game forums on how they're awful?

Yakuza 0/Kiwami are cool; I want to give the old games another shot. Didn't know people would be so bothered by it, lol.

play yakuza 2

also how the FUCK do i do kiwami moves on bosses? i unlocked them for each of the styles, i change to whatever style corresponds with the steam the boss is letting out, and... nothing. no prompt, no move. really starting to piss me off bc some of the bosses are not easy.

The best ones are 2 and if you're willing to import, Kenzan.

I have no problem with collectors. Just found it odd going from "I've never liked a yakuza game before" to "I want to collect them" is all.

Majima Everywhere is getting old at Rank C. The fights just take too long at this point. He has too many hit point.

TVC, have you figured out to use the corresponding style for a heat move when he starts heating up? Boss fights were a lot easier once I figured that out.

I did notice that, but it still seems to take forever, especially in rush style. Depending on how the next boss fight is, I may drop difficulty to combat the sponginess.

Yeah, except I never said that, lol. I didn't really like them until 0, which is fucking awesome. Plus I never played Yakuza 2 so that's a good place to start for me after Kiwami.

i remember it being really hard in 1; i no the machines were turned on and the balls would knock you down? here it just sucks bc it's really hard to stun Goro and he starts busting out these combos that can do like 80% even when you're fucking blocking. plus he can dodge any of your openers so you can a. dosage while picking at his health for an hour or b. find one combo that works and cheese it while hoping for the best. trash fight thru and thru.

oh don't get me wrong I still love the game. a good beat-em-up is as satisfying as a hot meal, and the open world stuff is prolly as close as I'll ever get to a vacation in Japan, so I'm having a ton of fun. just not enough to get good at fucking mahjong. that game has more ridiculous rules than Calvinball ffs.

I beat Kiwami.  It was good, but Zero is far, far better.

:( haven't played 0 yet but damn this game came out ten years ago so I wish ppl would go easier on it. it was flawed but still unlike anything else at the time. plus 0 apparently plays up the wacky stuff, which they deliberately tried to avoid a lot of in y1.

I wanted to finish off the Majima stuff but it got annoying when he'd pop up for a fight but I wouldn't get any new moves. like Jesus I already gotta fight him like 50 fuckin times but you wanna add more?? anyways, ending was still epic and this game is still great. gonna polish off a few remaining things in premium mode then get back to working on yakuza 2.

Hey I didn't notice this thread was a thing

I put it a bit on the backburner due to irl duties/danganrinpa, but I might make a go at platinuming Kiwami. I've got most of the CP list done, just need to polish off the worst of the casino games, do all of Mahjong, Climax Battles and the Legend run.

Despite liking 0 more than Kiwami, I'm only really making an effort at the latter cause it asks for so much less of you to do.   :'(

I can burn through one of the five stars in like an hour by playing the damn mini game, but real estate totaled shitty timer makes it pretty rough.

Well most prequels are made with the idea that you've experienced the previous thing. I never recommend prequels before the original.

While it's true that it being a prequel kind of hurts the story as well as helps as you know who is going to survive. So a lot of the tension and consequences can't be taken seriously. It's also more enjoyable already knowing the characters and how these relationships formed. And relationships in Yakuza are important and I think 0 really expects you to know them already. Does Fuma even appear? Does Majima's oath brother? Things they talk about all from previous games

I think 0 does a good job easing new players in, but the question was is Kiwami a bad place to start. Of course not. It's the first game.

Not only is Kiwami's story content altered in favor of having played 0 first, Kiwami also expects you to understand the gameplay/battle mechanics of 0 and is much harder.

Iíve never played a Yakuza game before zero, and... itís pretty sweet. The game does take a while to get going, and has a weird stylistic choice in the opening segment, where the first cutscene is basically a motion comic that makes you think the whole game is going to be this ultra low budget affair.

For whatever reason, only this cutscene is handled this way, and Iím not sure why. The rest of the game has more mid-tier level production values. My only recommendation is that the story takes a couple of hours to really get cooking. Thereís some good plot twists and foreshadowing involved, but the beginning is relatively slow.

I'm actually playing 0 right now, on the tail end. At first I didn't like the separation of abilities. Though I realize it's kind of a growth of the the multiple character stuff, I still somewhat perfected one character kind of being able to do everything. The balanced mode is usually ok, but I mean as I played more I somewhat grew to like the styles and kind of bloodborne attack just as being attacked mechanic.

I think it's a good game and I think the story does take a bit to get started but once it does it gets pretty good.

But honestly as someone who's played these games since the English release day on the PS2 I'm glad this isn't my first game. I think ones story is better and does more for Kiyra. My problem is I'm not to afraid of what happens to him in 0 and he doesn't seem to have a real great arch. I'm more intersted in Majima since well his character is pretty different from where he is in the other games. But I mean I'm only intersted because I played he other games.

I mean what does Kiwami change about the story? The main cutscenes are all the same. To the point of using the same rigging.  I plan to play Kiwami after 0, but I can't see either as being a bad start.

Based on how long I take to beat games nowadays I will probably end up playing 0 then 6 then Kiwami then kiwami 2.

What I ended up liking about the series is that itís this hard edged crime story, with side stories that are well developed but basically some sort of lifetime movie/sitcom, and then super ridiculous sub stories like metal gear solid sneaking to buy porn mags from a vending machine in a dark alley without being seen and beating off to porn movies and discussing it with some dude in a diaper.
