That's a weird direction to take an established franchise... its like Dead Rising or Resident Evil all of a sudden.

While correct that it's the "fifth installment" it's a bit of a misnomer to call it Yakuza 5 in the headline. This is shaping up to be a bit of a spinoff goof thing more than a proper sequel.

God damn it Sega, if you are that bored give us Shenmue 3..

This looks stupid.

right? I dont see why they dont just revive Shenmue in the style of Yakuza, its very similar as it is gameplay wise...

No, it's not similar. yauza has some minor exploration and a heavy focus on the story but it's a brawler at heart. Besides, i don't care what any nostalgia wanking fanboy says, Yakuza is miles better than Shenmue in both gamepaly and story. No more fork lift but more kicking ass, no more "Did you see a black car on the day it snowed?"-padding and more story driving cutscenes. Sorry but while Shenmue was something really special back in the day it's fucking boring now, and the story is so cookie-cutter and cliche that i honestly don't care how Ryo beats Lan Di any more.

Shenmue is Shenmue there's nothing like it out there, we just need to wait that some m*therf*cker wins a lottery or something like it and donate's all the money to SEGA, to start working on Shenmue 3.

Duno Yakuza is ok like you say if you like brawlers but thats about all its good at, I can't say the story is all that good personally.

Surely you can all pretend that this IS Shenmue, seeing as the inhabitants of that game always sounded like they wanted to eat your brain anyway.

Looks like goofy fun. This is pretty much a spin-of, much like the Kenzan spin off.

why do you think I said revive Shenmue in the style of Yakuza? I said they are similar gameplay wise because Yakuza definitely gave me the same type of vibe as Shenmue in terms of then environment and combat. If they made a Shenmue 3 they could easily do it much like Yakuza

yeah "fifth installment" is wrong, yakuza: in the end is a spin-off from the main series like kenzan, or the yakuza psp game

I bet you just wanna study them and sorta do stuff to yourself with them so you can run in the ceiling and wear leather coats!

as i know this isnt Ryu ga Gotoku 5... its Ryu ga Gotoku: Of the End
like Kenzan / Kurohyou... nothing to do with the usual storyline. so i think we shoudnt call it 5. Kenzan is also not Number 3

About the game

What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (9 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (11 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (12 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (13 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (13 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (14 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (15 minutes ago)
