Speaking of Bloodborne, that Bisquit run was picked up and is doing nicely. Ludwig took a handful of attempts due to being rusty and being spoiled by Saw Cleaver in previous runs. I have a better appreciation for both phases. Actually died to Mergo, which was shocking. 30Vit is a different game than 50Vit. Grabbing some tools for Maria; going for that Madaras swag kill.

Blades of Mercy are fine. Bottom tier in Bloodborne is like A- confirmed.

I need help, is Yakuza Kiwami, and 0 worth the $$$?

@CSplitter tell me the overview of the games.

I think the closest I've ever played a true Beat-em-up was the Kenka Bancho series.

The japanese GTA thing used to be said about the games back during the PS2 days and it's a horrible description.

They have a very condensed world, like 20 city blocks that is stupidly detailed and full of side activities. So it acts more like a hub than a sandbox. It's usually Kamurocho and another city/town, with Kamurcho being the same skeleton with iterations since Yakuza 1. By Yakuza 0, it's so jam packed with s*** to do I've spent about 160 hours on it and I'm still missing stuff. Side activities are broken down to absurd and well localised sidequests, several minigames of varying depth (from bowling , fully emulated Sega games like Outrun and Virtua Fighter and in depth building/racing toy cars on which I've spent an embarassing amount of time), consumable/weapon/sidequest related shops, roaming goon encounters and boss fights and restaurants/bars with food/drinks that give exp and bonuses. There's usually a big side story like running a cabaret or RTS gang management, depending on the game.

I actually don't have much experience with 3D beat-em ups (there aren't many of them anyways) but it's probably the best one I've played bar Godhand. It's miles ahead of western attempts like the Batman games. Yakuza 0 in particular has so many moves, both offensive and defensive, that it never got stale. A big part is due to the feedback of the hits and heat moves which are contextual actions that change depending on the state of the enemy, whether you are armed or not and with what weapon, the location of the fight etc. The enemy AI, bar bosses, ain't anything special though.

The main story is both stupid and hype. Usually driven by character conflicts but it also doesn't give much of a f*** about consistency if it wants to set up a bossfight. It's pretty much testosterone the game, without taking itself too seriously. The cutscene direction is the best in the industry and I regularly spam the discord with Yakuza music.

That's pretty much all Yakuza games with Yakuza 0 being the one that executes it best. It also has 2 very distinct characters to play as and the best iteration of Kamurcho and Sotenbori. Fully worth the money and my 2nd or 3rd favourite game this gen. I have a revew up on Kiwami's GameFAQs page if you wanna see my view on why that's not as good. But if you like the main formula, you'll like all of them unless you get burned out quickly.

Um. So, I watched some Ys8 videos because I do plan on grabbing it at some point. Read up on more of the original horrible script. This phrase came up: "purify weird souls".

<strikethrough>Thanks cs, but you didn't tell me about the forced character switch between every 2 chapters. I got a major gripe with this, and is also the reason I can never finish a game that does this. For example FF2, and FF4. Screw MH for introducing this min-max approach to every game ever.

Well, actually my only gripe is if there are missables. Say you play 3 perspectives, then somehow you managed to f*** up perspective#2 and permanently missed a content. Then the game mixes the 3 perspectives together, but are unable to get the content for f***ing up because the devs hate you, or they failed to make a failsafe for the instance that the player missed a content.</strikethrough>

EDIT:

pls gib strikethrough SBAllen

So I just found this: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/pc/241144-yakuza-0/faqs/74451/new-game-and-premium-adventure

Ok, I'll stop b****ing now.

Yeah, no missables due to premium adventure. Pacing-wise, 0 juggles 2 perspectives just fine. Kiwami only has 1 character.

But if you're going for 100% you shoud know. Everything has a checklist. Unless the the process seems worth it, do not go down that rabbit hole.

You literally have to get decent at shogi, japanese Mahjong, several hanafuda games to 100%. That's on top of 5-6 different Sega games in the arcades for every Yakuza title, western gambling games, batting, bowling, racing, hostess training, darts, a fighting arena, snooker, a karaoke rythm game, fishing and more. And a billion collectibles.

Also, probably some kind of dating sim/online cam minigame featuring scanned models of Japanese pornstarts cuz Yakuza.
