Ok,I was thinking about it and I got a question about Yakuza Like A Dragon since I haven't played it yet.We all know that when people start removing their shirts and go bare chested that shit just got real and we are likely in the final bss fight but since in Like A Dragon you have a team and that includes women what happens in the final battle?Does the protagonist only remove his shirt?Does everyone go half naked inlcuded the women?Does everyone including the final boss get to keep their clothes?
That deshirting doesn't apply to civilians bro.
Shinada is the exception because his shirt was too tight for his musculature.

Not to be that guy, but it was during such an event that Like A Dragon was announced.

Bringer of hope, crusher of dreams. I will mantle this role with a heavy heart.

...although it will likely only be in Japanese as it’s exclusively being streamed on a Japanese platform.
You think they'll make a statement about western release on a Japanese event that isn't a business event? Probably not. Best you can hope for is them teasing Like a Dragon 2.
I've long since given up any hopes of the two ye olde samurai Yakuza games getting released in the West (though, thankfully, one of them is getting a fan translation, as are the two PSP games).

I'm curious if they've given up on developing more Judgement titles ever since the old creepy homo went super jealous the public was going to be eye raping his twink.

thought I'd share my Yakuza stash. Can't wait to add Judgment to the list!

Boycotting RGG studios until they release JUDGE EYES 1 and 2 on PC.

Will take a collection of Ishin/Kenzan/the PSP spinoffs instead.

Your move, Sega.

Well replacing Takuya Kimura with someone else is the only real solution here considering how absolutely fucking insane his management/talent agency Johnny’s is.
Absolutely no one should work with them and Sega should have known better, their insanity didn't start yesterday after all it was always well known.

I mean SEGA probably knows that before hand. Contract wise not porting to PC is something that is being dealt before and not after so I would assume SEGA still decide to go through with it.

Or maybe the agency do the contract on per game basis on held the character hostage (as in we won't let use our agent anymore if you release on PC)?

Doesn't look like it since we heard several reports there was a dispute between Sega and Johnny's about this if it was already in the contract this wouldn't be the case:

"Those on the side of the game developer and those on the side of Johnny’s are said to have been unable to reach an agreement regarding the platforms to sell the game," reads the Nikkan Taishu report.

One wrinkle in the story was that the first Judgement is available on PC via Google Stadia streaming. But considering how reluctant Johnny's has been to adopt the internet (previously refusing to even publish press images of its talent online), it's possible the agency simply wasn't aware of how Stadia worked and as dumb as it sounds they probably didn't even know people where actually playing games on PC's.

Judgment and Lost Judgment are on Luna as well, I am pretty sure they are expressly aware of Luna/Stadia being streaming only platforms. The issue is the agency head didn't want people making sfm porn with the models and yet the people have already ripped the console models in response.

No they perfectly understand how Stadia worked. As I understand they don't want it on PC because they don't want people to make "content" with their talent, which is possible due to PC being able to hack and have access to assets. Stadia was fine because it was streaming.

I had a dream I was perusing the Codex, this very thread, and bros were rejoicing over the Y8 announcement trailer
