    Might want to go back to Yakuza 1 myself even if it looks bad on TV's today so dark. Been a while and need to refresh on Nishiki's setup.

    SEGA America made the lines so crude so everything is audiably saying "FUCK YOU" instead of simply "DORRYA!!"

    The movie is also pretty slick too even if its by the super budget director guy, and has no time for everything that happens in the first game. Back tattoo looks legit, goofy energy drink power up HEAT!!

    Just finished the game.

    Final play time: 103 hours, 37 minutes. Completion: 60.16%.

    Man... I wasn't ready for this game. On top of being fun, the game has an amazing story and characters. Definitely cried once, teared up several times.


    End spoilers:
    I definitely cried when Makoto realizes Tachibana is dead. That shit was extremely rough to watch, even if it wasn't very long. Even Kiryu wasn't able to keep it together just a minute prior. Shit, man... Ending scene of chapter 6 between Nishikiyama and Kiryu was really tough too. I teared up real bad there; such an excellently acted scene.

    Fuck, man... Majima's story is just... so tragic. I was really hoping he and Makoto would reunite and at least say goodbye, but that never happened. That scene where the two yakuza lackeys were harassing Makoto and Majima saves the day was just so sad. It broke my heart that he purposefully didn't say anything so she wouldn't know it was him. I just wanted... something... ANYTHING. Some sort of scene where he is properly reunited with her, but he chose to remain out of her life. My heart can't take this! Post credits scene where she finds her old watch that Majima left for her made me tear up as well. I really wanted him to find happiness after all he went through, especially after he fell for her and wanted to protect her, but at least he found purpose in life to live wild and crazy, finally freed from his cage. I really liked this version of Majima overall, although I've only seen bits and pieces of crazy Majima in the older games. I wouldn't have minded if he was cool and proper throughout the whole series like he is in 0.

    Overall I really loved this game. I still have side missions I need to finish up (like the hostess club), so I'm not close to being done with the game, even if I've gotten my money's worth and then some through a single play through. I can't wait for the Yakuza 1 remake so I can start going through the whole series as well!

    The other games in the franchise will do this to you too. Now that they've been re-printed and you've finished Y0, it's as good as time as any to get into the rest of the series. :tup:

    Scroll back bud I linked the locations, yea the card watcher defo handy. I used the guide and cleaned it up in about 20 mins. Also once you got all the cards, speak to each of the Mr Libidos and provided you got enough JAV videos, it will trigger their last quest line.

    Man, watching all 30 videos for that adventure CP crushed my soul a lil, even tho you can skip I did each one deliberately so i didnt miss any by accident, fml.

    Hmmm heres the link bud... http://dswiipspwikips3.jp/yakuza0/phone-card.html

    Just did the freshwater fishing 15/15. The rest of this 100% completition now is firmly on Kiryus shoulders. Well done Majima my old son, you did well. :tup:

    Damn fishing is a pain in the ass but just takes a bit of patience.

    Heres a super fast one with Kiryu... Shogi! Go down the stairs, talk to the guy and do the first challenge then break out this bit of magic...



    :bow: blew my mind, I thought shogi was gonna be another arse ache adventure but turns out this is legit easy af.

    edit: lol you can do this 3 times, 3 easy CP. Need to win 1 then 3 then 5 times. I just repeated challenge 1 and copied this.

    Pool, another great vid for those pesky CP bastards.



    8 Ball easy mode, let the CPU get to the black then it will make mistakes letting you position the white for best oppertunity.

    First game I got my 3 combination shots (CP popped) and 1 caroom. The later are a bastard but hey just need 2 more and am done.

    10M is easy from the puzzle pool, remember bet max, do the first 2 rounds and bail, rince and repeat.

    edit: Carom shots were a pain, 4 matches, you know the shot doesnt need to be as neat as shown in the video, as long as you hit a ball and backspin that bitch into one of yours and it eventually goes it, doesnt matter if it bounces off the cusions or hits other balls, justs needs to go in. Back to karaoke time! :crybaby:

    I have one but it's gray, not black. I do have a black suit that would probably work though.

    After 20 hours I finally started chapter 3, and without spoiling it for anyone, I gotta say that cutscene at the start of chapter 3 had me laughing and was written and directed expertly.
    Dunno if I ever had so much fun with video game cutscenes. That shit was funnier and more engaging than 90% of the shit that Hollywood craps out every year.

    Also fucking furious. So I get out of the cutscene, and make a beeline straight to the casino to play some hold em, rack up 10k chips in 2 hours, then the fucking application faces an error and all my progress is lost.
    That was a major bummer.

    Theres a side mission where you write postcards for a local radio show. It has me rolling everytime, like its comedy gold but the thing with it for me is the way your character looks at the radio longely as his thought bubble comes up with whatever hes saying. 10/10.

    Trying to get the 5M CP from baseball, here we go again with the crying holy shit.

    The casino crashed for me in the first 3 hands. Something is up with that in there.

    New baseball changes after the good ones of Yakuza 5, all gone and the new ones are all bad.

    LOL why is he starstruck by a radio DJ. LET ME SHAKE YOUR HAND!

    They didn't pick the stories I thought were winners like the Rockabilly Band.

    And speaking of that, I wasn't checking Majima's then wanted to but the Club Venus battle took that away for the time being since she's not back there to mail it for you, Majima is not gonna do that himself!

    & Those bastards. I lost the first one by only 1 recovery gift. Under 200k. 2nd time I thought I was boned since they lv 2 or 3 FEVER hit me so 4 tables of Rich guys leave at the same time for an empty room in the club with like 2 poor players at the corners. But I ran it back at them with what I had and won out by 8 million. Only using one 150K a night shift girl, Gold not even platinum.

    LOL doing other areas and the purple afro old lady was the right pick for quite a few WEALTHY guys, 54 million take one night, targeting Mercury. Doing your area again, even with huge fanbase, still was like only 22.

    They also should've kept the HEAT actions list since I do seem to see more of those and finally do them and see new ones without realizing it.

    Those one shot in the whole game -spots to do them-ever ones in Yakuza 2 were a bit much, but in that vein a PS2 era kind of completion list to go back to check out like I really wanted to see the bar-based one. Too bad what with at the time, only that one GameFAQ guide existed with all half finished stuff - and it was for the import version.

    Yeah I saw this a couple weeks ago. I wish there was an English subtitled version; I'd really love to see what they're saying.
