In that case you'd better start with Yakuza 0. Kiwami is much weaker than 0 in many aspects, and 0 is before Kiwami (1) on the timeline.

Why not Yakuza 0?

So is August 29 the US/World release or just Japan like always?

Can't wait. Although I don't like the EUR 34,99 price-point I read elsewhere, if US only pays 29,99

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But DICE does a lot of things very well. Battlefield 1 delivers on the spectacle and the tight controls that it should. (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The moment-to-moment gameplay is great, but if you're actually interested in the outcome of any given round it's one of the worst Battlefields. (15 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX BF1 is fun but OW is a much better PVP game. BF1's conquest rules are fucking awful. (17 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus to anyone that dissed BF1. Fuck U. it's awesome, bo play your ovowatch action doll pvp. (26 minutes ago)

    asdfg @GriftGFX: they are very starved for new ip:s I reckon. (49 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I never doubted its console appeal, but if I had to play it sub-30 FPS with a gamepad I might just play something else. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm a little surprised by the PUBG fanfare on Xbox. (2 Hours ago)
