Ch.10 now in Judgment and most of the side content done. Game is so good.

It has its fair share of legit issues like KEIHIN GANG that detract from it, but man this is a good game and top-tier Yakuza series title. It's rekindling my love for these meaty Kamurocho games.

Final chapter in Judgment. The main story, which is the best part of the game, falls pretty hard around 70% through. It's a great murder mystery, but they solve the mystery like 65-75% into the story and then the last 25% is just a bunch of chapters of Yagami doing stupid things and getting nowhere again and again and again which isn't a lot of fun and feels like getting nowhere time-wasters. The sidequests/friend quests are still great and in the last 25% they've been the more fun part. Almost done with those as well.

Hopefully the finale stuff will be good crazy badass Yakuza games stuff to end it on a strong note.

At the point of no return and have 3 friends left and they're all pretty annoying (Mahjong, full batting clear, bunch of art pieces grind from casinos) and need them for the final 2 side cases. While I like the side cases and friend events, not sure I wanna spend the time but will give it a shot before I finish the story. I don't think I've ever bothered doing close to 100% in a Yakuza game before, but I'm so close here I kind of want to try.

Also it's weird how the drone races are totally separate and there's nothing tied to them. There's a lot of races...haven't really bothered after doing the first championship once to check it out.

Hoping Yagami gets disbarred in the ending for all the illegal shit he's done and has somehow not lost his attorney license.

So Judgment is glitched and I can't 100% the friends/side cases. I'm down to just Mahjong which apparently I can cheat if I grind 10,000 SP for an item and this runner guy who doesn't show up unless I've run from the cops who don't appear unless a normal battle takes like 5-7 mins+ but after hours of playing today I can't get a sidekick guy to not show up in a normal battle and even if I just block or run in circles the sidekick, even on hard difficulty, will clear all the normal battle enemies before the cops every.single.time. So this is just impossible.

Maybe if I beat the game and then put it on the higher difficulty mode it'll happen and I can get access to the two final lvl.50 city rep side cases. Idk, gonna beat that mahjong and then clear the story I guess at this point. This thing is super annoying. Why this cops showing up thing even exists when normal battles take like 10-30 seconds max is so stupid.

*edit* Got it. 50/50 friends. Gonna clear up the last few side cases and then finish the game. In terms of completion I'm missing the skills from the dice course but don't want to grind the free play passes from the 3 casinos. I've had the worst luck save scumming blackjack the whole game. Ended up just buying chips because I couldn't fucking win a few times in a row even with save/reloads.

Spent 3 hours of retries trying to cheese out Shin Amon and barely did it. I need to stop going for 100% in these games. That was a super bullshit fight.

Finished Judgment, yeah that finale was just nonsense tune out like FFXII or the many other game/movie/book stories that just lose the plot in the end.

They really couldnít decide whether they wanted a satisfying courtroom finale without the punching or a punch punch shoot shoot over the top Yakuza finale and it just kinda zig-zags between both unsatisfyingly. Same with the main antagonist. When you canít just punch some of these bad people it struggled figuring out who the actual antagonist is and kept jumping around between a few people instead of having a strong antagonist.

Lots of other stupid stuff like the courtroom stuff is so unrealistically nonsense, the mole has a million chances to shoot Yagami and never does, etcÖ

The first 70% is one of the stronger Yakuza stories as a detective murder mystery procedural and Yagami is pretty solid and decently smart. But the last 30% is a real mess and worse than pretty much every Yakuza game Iíve played. Just very weak.

That being said itís a fun & good game. It has legit flaws like the Keihin Gang and the whole dual stance & ex mode system isnít that great of a combat system, but lots to do in the city, fun sidequests, fun characters, good plot for most of it, nice visuals, and I actually enjoy tailing surprisingly.

Itís a good game and Iím down for another Yagami adventure. Hopefully with better combat, no Keihin Gang thing and maybe next time theyíll figure out the identity struggle between courtroom stuff and punch punch stuff and make it work. Might be better to just ditch the court legal procedural stuff and just make it a punch punch Yakuza story as a punch punch detective.

Lotta good times for sure in the 45 hours I put in. Although it gets a negative point for being the first Yakuza game I've ever played where if you grab a grunt near a ledge you can't instant kill them by throwing them over the ledge wtf.

I'm reading the outrage that Lost Judgment treats Sexual Assault stuff absolutely terribly.

Coming from Judgment 1, yeah.

Like this isn't even a reviewers being overly critical iffy thing. The RGG team is really, really dated on dealing with anything with women holy crap. There were parts in Judgment 1 that was like phew...how is this a 2018 game?

The Yakuza/Judgment series is so tied up in this overly masculine BADASS MEN culture and BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS it's ...pretty embarrassing at this point. They really need to work on this aspect ASAP, even if it means Nagoshi backs off a little from full creative control.

I mean his "Kiryu can't hit women so he can't be in Tekken or any fighting game" is  ::)
