    like how do you keep track of all the heat moves you do? I was under the assumption that you just had to get all the heat moves period.

    Have you ever seen any of the completion lists? They are in the start menu of the game, go to heat and the game records every heat move you do for the 1st time. So to complete that list all you have to do is perform every heat move at least once, very easy imo.
    Yakuza 1 and 2 are my favorite games on the PS2. I was pumped for Yakuza 3's US release until I read about the cut content. I cancelled my pre-order and am waiting on it to hit $20 or so before I pick it up. Yakuza1 and 2 had the hostess clubs and all the weird bullshit, why not 3?

    You should really read the first couple of posts in this thread. We cover why Yakuza 3 is a definite buy and is actually worth 60 bucks.

    Speaking of the chicks, is the one that was in the demo, Rena Sakurai (I think her name was), in the full game? I haven't seen her yet, and I'll need her if I'm going to 100% it.
    I think I've went out with her note that

    Aight cool. Considering i'm at the final chapter right now and i still need to finish the last two underground tourneys, i'll probably get started on doing all the moves.

    Yeah to my knowledge you can perform all of the heat moves in chapter 12. So I think you should be able to get it with minimal problems.

    Quick question:
    I'm apparently missing some of the special sword moves in the HEAT list that may require me to read a book to get them. Where do you get the books from?
  • TizocTizoc Joined: Posts: 11,406
    ^You get them from books/DVDs you buy from the guy that mods your weapons and equipment.

    yeah just looked into it. I'm missing Three Ancient Techniques. I honestly don't know where to go for them.

    yep found the guy. Does the completion list carry forward to the next game? I'm one level away from the final HEAT action and i know i'll get to that level once i start the hospital battle.

    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.
