    No, if u start a Premium new game everything but your cash, upgrades, Heat moves and some items is reset...including Haruka's trust level.
    If u play Premium adventure however, you keep everything...even Haruka's trust level.

    So in other words, beat the game till i get the last HEAT level. Play through Premium Adventure to use the last heat move, get the infinite Heat item, and then i'll be able to use it in Premium New Game?*Never mind, I figured it out now*

    Anyways, Yakuza 3 yet again ends on an epic ending.
    Running the gauntlet of enemies in the hospital. Having to fight the Wesker lookalike twice, and finishing it off fighting Mine on the rooftop. Damn this game delivered.

    I finally beat Yakuza 3 earlier today. The game seemed easier than Yakuza 2, I didn't lose any fights at all except for that trainer on the beach in Okinawa. Great game overall, and I hope Sega is working on localizing Yakuza 4. I did about 60 side missions before I beat the last 3 chapters, now I'm in Premium Adventure doing the rest of them I doubt I will platinum this game any time soon, if at all because of the mini-games. I don't have much interest in completing them and I had a shit load of other games in my need to play stack.


    Holy shit for beating this game you only get a Silver trophy, goddamn.

    I love the Yakuza series because it is self paced pretty much and the story is fantastic.

    Just bought and started this game today and I must say, Haruka's one hell of a child. Not only does she have a hugeass appetite (she wanted 3 ice creams, 4 drinks, some sushi and a beef-on-rice) but she's also currently kicking my ass in bowling.

    So... I really want to get into Yakuza 3, but never played 1 and 2. In general I've always wanted to play the series, just never got to it. Will it be all good if I just go straight to 3?

    Yakuza 3 gives a good summary of the first 2 games so you can jump straight to 3. If you really want to play the first 2, they should be cheap to buy on ebay.

    I still say that EVERYBODY should play the 2nd game. Still my overall favorite game in the series, with arguably my fave storyline, short of Kenzan's.

    I'm trading in both
    Yakuza 2-$5
    Yakuza 3-$25
    To amazon.

    I haven't touched either one since beating them, loved both games. I didn't play the first one because my friend had it and when I watched him play it the English dub was ridiculous.

    Can't wait for Yakuza 4 to come over here.

    Is that even real? Cause if that's the case then the gangs must have did a huge number on the city fighting each other.

    Well 90% of Kazuma's heat moves would pretty much leave anyone dead so they should work on zombies.

    Definitely hyped for Yakuza 4, I'm playing the demo for Yakuza Of The End at the moment. I got it off the JP PSN, it is the one with zombies and shit. I put over 2.5 hours in it so far, not knowing a word of Japanese. You get a gun with unlimited ammo, but a 13 round clip you must reload.
    Took a broad off the street to the Sauna, played some Ping Pong with her.
    Shit is funny on that part, you build you heat ping pong finish while holding L2 to look at her tits while you play.
    Did a shooting range game, where you ran through a course shooting cardboard cutouts of zombies and tried to avoid humans.
    Play some 777 slot machines

    I don't know what all the demo has, but it fucking shits on that Yakuza 4 demo Sega of America gave us.

    Demo has some dumb shit sometimes, because to open a door or something it will show circle on the screen, but circle won't do shit, you have to press X instead. There is a few parts where the button that was shown, was the wrong one to press.
  • Mr. BastosMr. Bastos Joined: Posts: 2,151 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    I'm hella hype. GOt mine reserve and can't wait to play it. I also got the "Of the End" demo, but I haven't had a chance to play it.

    I was mad disappointed in the Us Yakuza 4 demo, because the Japanese one was really good but all we got was some battles. Oh well it's almost here so it doesn't even matter. and I'm glad the cut list was only answer x answer.

    Might be just me, but I really have a hard time to keep up with all the clan names. Not even sure if Shibata and Ueno were ever mentioned in the previous games.

    It's best to not worry about the clan names, besides Tojo, the others are likely RetCon. I put over 10 hours in, and I'm still Akiyama, I think Chapter 5. Y3 was more challenging, and Kiryu was more polished than Akiyama, I'm having all sorts of trouble picking up a downed opponent, but no trouble just beating the shit out of them.

    Hostess shit, I will probably full star Rio and not bother with the rest of the girls just to complete one. I will also make one girl #1 at my own club, and never touch that part again SHIT!.

    The story is okay, I'm really curious on what that Black Widow bitch wanted all that cash for. I will have me another Y4 session later today.
  • MechZZMechZZ Joined: Posts: 1,657
    Akiyama is broken. After you lightning legs somebody with 13 hits and then do the 3 strong kicks you've already done a full bar of life and are in heat.
  • daydaydayday BalletOfDestruction Joined: Posts: 2,191
    Also, you can line them up and bounce them off the wall, and and kick them several more times when they are already dead charging your Heat.

    I wish they put up a better fight, they just stand around and take it, no challenge. Only challenge I had was the Flaming Chainsaw guy, and even though he hits you a lot, the damage wasn't so great. I knew I could lame him out and beat him.

    No sense of threat, kind of wish I started on Hard or something.

    yeah I wish I started on Hard too. The game is really easy, though I expect it will pick up toward the end.

    I just want to say again, I love the key locator. I'm still in Chapter 2 of part 1 and I've already opened over 40 lockers :rofl: though there is one annoying one I cannot find for the life of me on the rooftops.

    Fuck Yeah Yakuza 3 was more of a challenge than 4 is so far.
    Rikiya was tough, but I beat him without losing, but I did lose to that one guy early you fight in the office.
    He kicked my ass a few times, after that I pretty much ran through the guys. Hitman missions weren't bad except like 2 of them.

    I started on Hard and the only real part I had trouble with so far was busting out of the prison. Saejima to me seems like might end up being the weakest of the four characters. Can anyone who's further than me confirm/deny?

    There is a man standing next to the lockers in Kamuro-cho, the same location it was in Y3. If you talk to him he should give you an item that when equipped will tell you if a key is nearby.

    So I finally started yakuza 3. Before I even started a new game, my ears started orgasming at that sick arcadey music expected of a sega title. So good.

    So I'm almost 40 hours in and am almost done with Part 3.
    Going from Saejima to whatshisname was one heck of a change, Saejima's strong build made it so he had a high defense, but that's not the case in Ch. 3 and I kept taking a lot of damage when surrounded by a lot of enemies:lol:
    Story's getting more exciting though, wonder if what Saejima experienced was a dream or hallucination?

    Here's a tip on getting an easy 3 mil. Yen in Part 3, Chapter 4-
    When in the 4th chapter, go to the Casino in Ryugujo, there should be an old man sitting on a chair. Talk to him and you'll play a game of Russian Roulette, when you gain the gun the 2nd time, choose the first option (fearless), then on the 3rd, choose the 2nd option (calm).
    Do this and you should get 3 mil. Yen

    Beat the game last night
    The game's story is great but the way the final part ended it was...not satisfying IMO. Arai's been backstabbing just about everyone and in the end it seemed like 'all is forgiven'. I think they could've handled the story in the last part a heck of a lot better.
    Gameplay wise, you tend to lose any interest in fighting enemies once you've collected a lot of cash, furthermore maxing out characters' levels is faster and easier in this game.
    I'm going to go get some trophies, and replay the game to get a silver trophy for beating the game without switching to easy mode (can't believe I don't get this for beating the game on Hard, WTF), still Kiryu's part of the game is very short aside from the final part and with my strong stats I should be able to finish the game really quickly.

    All in all I enjoyed the game for the most part. Here's hoping Of the end gets released next year, really hype for playing as Majima X3

    Tizoc,

    You must have switched to easy mode, maybe when Kiryu fucks you up on the beach. It asked me if I wanted to downgrade to Easy after he fucked me up three times and I said No.

    I got the trophy first time through on Normal, so I know you can get it on the first playthrough.
