i want to buy it, but whenever i go and see all the different editions and dlc... it is just... off putting

 :confused just buy the game

i probably should, but it really got that kind of effect on me with any games, when i see 5 different editions and dlc tiers.

The game is totally complete feeling without any DLC from what I played so far. It's just a couple Kiryu/Majima/etc costumes for the party and an additional two DLC jobs, but the game is definitely not hurting for jobs as is.

If you hate extended parts in JRPGs where you don't have a full party, play the store management minigame until the first checkpoint. You're welcome.

:confused

Are you saying that doing that will advance the story?
It's how you unlock an optional party member and it significantly lowers the grind in chapter 8 since you also get a ton of money for upgrades and stuff.

That management game though. I was expecting to watch some chill numbers and substories coming together like in 0. Instead:

They really have a part where you have to earn 3 Million Yen? Dawg. I've been investing in that chicks upgrade shop and have like 500K Yen. Going to take some time.

Iím not there yet (chapter 7) but this one feels far more stingy with xp and cash than the other yakuza games :tocry

My favorite part of this game is that Nanba looks 100% the same as my old grizzled BJJ teacher, and one of your party members is a 59-year-old man named Koichi, and I literally work with a 59-year-old man named Koichi

Keep it lean, donít take on shitty loans and make sure your staff are always happy, once Iíd worked that out I breezed into the top 20 (not done it since)

I did that with 3 properties :trumps

Another PSA gameplay tip, switching Ichiban to the foreman job unlocks a skill to break down walls and doors that are under construction. You don't even have to unlock the skill, it just unlocks immediately and then you can switch jobs back to whatever. I've found a few secret shops in the open world using the skill and it's how you knock down those walls in the randomly generating sewer dungeons. Also, the shops sell the keys you need to open golden safes.

The jobs system is probably my biggest pet peeve, other than changing sa-chan :expert to an idol early on it doesnít seem worth fucking around with really, fuck having to grind a job up from scratch and losing a shit load of stats and skills :tocry

Pretty happy with my party by chapter 11, except I wish I could change out Kasuga, because bodyguard is just shit in the long run and I don't wanna restart with another jab.  :goty

Just beat it at around ~65 hours. Game was great!! Probably my 2nd or 3rd favorite of these I've played overall (some overly goofy plot beats bringing it down just a tad). Ichiban is awesome, and I enjoyed the combat more than I thought I would. The job system goes a long way. Wonderful atmosphere as always.

Good koozer, and can't wait for the next one.  :)

Chapter 6 of Judgment

So far a pretty middling experience. Lots of CHASE THIS and TAIL THAT and the story is draaaagging right now. Combat is somehow worse than both Yakuza Dragon Engine.

They level up really fast once you get later in the game plus you get skills and stat bonuses that stay even after you change again.

I hit the 50 substories done in 3, with 80 total, and I like to at least do all the substories in these games even if I'm not going to platty (which I've only done on Kiwami 2), but I'm at the stage where you just have to keep wandering around hoping to trigger a new story and I'm not really sure I want to do that instead of just moving on to 4.

But wandering around aimlessly hoping to trigger a quest is a good thing to some people LUL

Speaking of dumbshit mechanics, Judgment has this stupid shit where enemies can "break" your health and you have to waste time and go heal it (kind of like how some RPGs have a mechanic where you die, you permanently lose HP until you go to a clinic of some sort)

I think I'm about to go Game Over in that economy minigame :rogan

Yup, practically broke now :rogan No new funds from Nick(?) after the second boss was a death sentence. Whatever, I hope lv 3 friendship with the economy woman is good enough to keep her in my party, plus I got several million Yen out of it.

You could change your focus to the Mario Kart storyline, but that shit is pretty wack so far gameplaywise. :larry The developers of F-Zero GX made this...

The lack of substory and key locators are some real QOL stuff I miss in 3 and presumably 4-5 as well.

5 has really good sub story tracking on the map. 4 I think is identical to 3.

makes me nostalgic for the chinese buffet that used to do dirt cheap takeaway boxes just down the road from me (this and pan pipe disney themes)

being a respectable citizen i always respected the "you must be able to close the lid" limit, unlike most dudes who'd make a jenga tower out of mini spring rolls and chicken wings.

If you're broke just take out a loan.  :trumps
Only invest in employees that have strong base stats. There are a ton of shitty employees that are pointless to have. Also make sure you have the max amount of businesses and upgrade them until their stats are in the blue before training employees.  It becomes a cakewalk once you start having a decent profit every day and once you've got it done you have a money printer for all the other stuff in the game.

Yeah I was in a similar state of thinking I had totally fucked the management minigame but when I sold off everything besides the property you start off with and just spent my money on improving that one until I started making a profit it became really easy.

I walked around both cities with Haruka and only triggered one substory. I'll give it another shot with the goofy 'kuzer dude who died in the story but is still around post game and if I don't start triggering more, I'm gonna move on to 4.
