    Pretty much the only reason I have consoles is that a lot of games I have do not have PC releases. And I sometimes don't want to wait for the PC release. Nioh 2 comes to mind and Final Fantasy 7 Remake. But more and more Japanese games are making it to PC on Day 1.

    Played it a bit,it's basically a streets of rage clone/reskin ,there seems to be only one level that you replay again and again. Nishiki is the boss and you can choose between Kiryu and Majima at first,but you unlock the new guy from 7,too although all three seem to play the same

    Aye, Streets was a fun distraction for 15-20 minutes, if they reskinned the whole game I'd give it a run through, sure. Alright for a little freebie.

    Looks like they modeled a section of the city by Yokohama Bay, renaming Kannai to Jinnai. The stadium is conspicuously absent though.

    It’s a big map! Probably too big. It’s kind of empty and soulless compared to Kamurocho. It’s kind of surreal these days to walk around in a coofless Yokohama and no mask rules.

    My thoughts exactly. Look at the map:

    Map comparison (open)
    [​IMG]


    Yokohama is a lot bigger, yes. But the entire station section and the park are just big, open space. Koreatown has wide and open streets, and the Red Light District is quite open as well. All the other places have streets that are more like those of Kamurocho, but it takes away from the feeling that you're little more than a rat scurrying through the alleyways of a place much larger than you. I mean, Nakamischi Street in Kamurocho is one of the widest in the game and... it's wide enough to let two cars pass each other with sidewalks on both sides. The new map just feels way and way too big to give that Yakuza feeling. You know what it reminds me of? Sleeping Dogs.

    It would still be denser than Sleeping Dogs. SD represented three districts in roughly the same space. This is just a single district.

    aren't the streets wider because you are now travelling as a party w/ up to 4 people instead of just walking around by yourself?

    Yeah, they actually follow you around and they're not shoved up your ass like with many turn-based JRPGs.

    Show Spoiler
    Why did they have to do that to Yakuza? :negative:

    It’s a decent game, but really should’ve been spun off into its own thing instead as a mainline title. I put about 60 hours into on the PS4 before giving up. Just way too long, IMO.

    I hope it's fun, otherwise this would be the worst year related to games.
