well i beat it. 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.

funny because I read an article where they got some real yakuza to play y3 and one of the things they didn't like was how Kazuya dressed like a low-grade dork lol

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.   :'(

Iím finishing up Yakuza 0 and... is there a way to speed up Real Estate Royale? Itís such a slog and I donít know the fastest way to beat it.

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.

I've never played a Yakuza game before. Kawami's cheap, 0 isn't. Do you think Kawami is a good entry point to the series, or should I stop being a cheap fuck and start with 0?

Kiwami is a remake of the first game so of course it's worth starting there.

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.

afaik some side quests are added/changed to directly reference stuff from 0. Also they added a bunch of scenes for Nishiki's change into what he is in Kiwami.

With a Japanese psn account you can, not sure if there's any restrictions like needing PS+.

Nope. If you can navigate the Japanese store it's free to download.

Apparently it's huge because it's a big chunk of the game that you can play through and use your save on the full version when it comes out later.

The demo is still up on UK and AU PSN.  Hokuto has a demo up (J-PSN) too, BTW.

Was going to post yesterday that I wondered if it might be possible for someone to get into the full game...and Sega made it easy to do so.  :lol

Sega still hasn't said anything. They could either:

1. Patch it and remove the full game.
2. Let those who downloaded it keep it.
3. Push up the release of the full game.

I kinda hope the move up the release, but not sure if that's realistic.

It's not like 6 had it easy to begin with, considering that its advanced point in the story might scare off new Y0 players. And other core players might want to skip it until Kiwami 2 comes... So this doesn't exactly help the game either.

I wish they would just push up the release date since itís clearly done :-/.

The whole thing makes me wonder if the game is pushed back because of delays manufacturing the tstochkes for the song of life/special edition.
