2008-01-07 12:17:42 Rya Go Gotoku Kenzan demo up! (Yakuza 3)

On the Japanese PS Store, there're two demos, I played the second one so far, and I really like the combat, animation, and graphics. It still reminds me of Samurai champloo, though there's no hip-hop in here. ;)

I really hope this comes to Europe or the US.

Go get it!

Must... not... get... excited.. about... this... yet....
Still so.......far away...


But really, one of my favourite franchises now, Kazama Kiryu is the biggest new badass to come along in like a bizillion years, regardless which time period he's in. Yakuza 2 is one of the big ones of 2008 for me.

The game is boring :S

I kept running to the places where it is highlighted and talked to whoever had the arrow above his head.

No voice, no music...nothing...I got bored and deleted it.

Instead of putting up this game, give us DMC4 demo :(

After Yakuza 2, I kinda lost faith in the series.

You should have played the combat demo. There just seems like there's loads to do in this game.

I didn't even know there was two demos :S

I did watch the combat video here on the site, repetive.

I did fight some bullies though on the other demo.

I did one of those grab moves and then dragged them to a lamp of some sort and the pressed a button and interact with it.

He basically slammed his face into the lamp two time, that as cool.

The fact that there is no voice or music in the background while just running around and such is boring.

That is one of the things that made Folklore boring, to keep reading and pressing to skip all the long ass dialogue.

Like I said, not my type of game.

oh man, it doesnt have voice acting like folklore?...that sucks. completely killed the game for me. considering its on a disc that can stor so much content you kinda expect voice acting.

Sath the fact that it has no voice work or music is probably because its a demo and one it may not have been done yet or two they took it out to reduce the size of the demo.

Jollipop...highly doubtful buddy.

Although I am not gonna buy this game at all as I mentioned, I do wish you are right for those who are gonna buy it.

No dialogue with text only and keep pressing the button to skip the mini-wallof text is just ignoring.

KORNDog

I know what you mean, in the CG they had voices. But you gotta remember that they wanted Folklore to have that novel type of thing were you gotta read and just watch with some music to go with it.

It was a bit stupid not to include SFX or dialogue to spice up those things.

There will be loads of voice acted stuff in this game sath, it will only be in major cutscenes though, talking to ever NPC with voice acting would be an incredible amount of work.

One thing I found is that this demo is pretty unplayable if you don't speak Japanese.

it didn't stop Mass Effect! :p

joking aside the videos look cool. Didn't really give the previous games a chance, but I'll be sure to give this one a go. Hopefully the US dub doesn't take too long.

It's a fancied up brawler though, so it's not like it NEEDS voice acting around every corner. The important part is that the combat is as deep, tough and rewarding as before. Oh and that Kazuma Kiryu is as deep, tough and rewarding as before. :P

But it's stopped [insert random jRPG] and that's essentially what this is. With realtime brawler based combat in place of strategic menu orgy.

Exactly both BD and LO didn't have full voice work even though they came of 3 and 4 discs.

So now LO and BD have no voices ?

This is one of those moments where people will whine about the most insignifacant of thing. (I could understand if you couldn't read but obviously you can)

Yukuza 3 will be pretty much the same as Yukuza 1/2 expect with better graphics.

Pretty much, yeah. Its just another weak attempt on Shenmue.

No it's not. Jesus! :)

It's made by Spikeout people and it's Spikeout woven into a hub world ala Final Fantasy 7 or whatever. You get random encounters but instead of the normal turn based/realtime RPG fare you get thrown into Spikeout, with an experience system and gaining new special moves just like a normal jRPG.

Instead of racing Chocobos or play floaty.. er.. water.. something.. you visit "hostesses" and play other mini games. There is absolutely no connection to Shenmue, and no people who ever worked on Shenmue has gone anywhere near this game.

Shenmue was an adventure game attempting *all genres* hence its "F.R.E.E." moniker (full reactive eyes entertainment, I can't believe I even memorised that :P) and none of its separate components were anywhere near as sharp as the fighting in Yakuza. That is because Yakuza IS a fighting game with RPG elements and very little else.
