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

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth EA announced today that a Battlefront II story trailer for the single player campaign trailer is coming tomorrow.. nice timing (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And while there may be a nugget of truth in there, people are DEFINITELY jumping to conclusions. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: Yea.. but what's not as obvious to people is that their PR wasn't for the benefit of consumers. It was spinning this for their shareholders. (3 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: that's a pretty obvious thing he says. If visceral were doing great progress at a single player game, EA would probably just ask them to change the direction, not fire them. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And as usual.. our analysis is dreadfully misinformed anyway (taking this back to Visceral): [url] (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm not as pessimistic about where things are headed. I think a lot of stuff is better in regards to this problem vs. a decade ago. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: Time for what? People are noticing stuff that impacts game design more than ever. That's not a new problem. Add-on content of any flavor has presented this problem through decades now. (6 Hours ago)
