    Hmm, I still don't have any tracking info from Amazon on my order of Yakuza 0. Was really hoping to get to sink some time into this before PAX.

    Somehow this managed to arrive today after all, I wonder if it's due to that new distribution facility in San Marcos. I seriously only got tracking info like 24 hours ago.

    So far I have found out I am bad at karaoke.

    I haven't played a Yakuza game in a stupidly long time even though I've bought all of them, so I decided to fire up Yak 5 last night...I'd forgotten just how mad these games really are.
    My taxi driving job mini game just turned into Wangan Midnight Run it's delightful.

    Ok, I just got a fighting style that is basically what if Jackie Chan had superhuman strength. I picked up a motorcycle and beat a dude to death with it.

    So is the combat in this like Prototype or more like Batman: Arkham {Location}?

    Because I doubt I have to tell anyone, but those goddamn Prototype games were fun as shit.

    the prototype games are proof that kinda ok gameplay don't mean shit if you don't have the narrative chops to back it up

    and yet the thing I remember loving the most out of those games was the chatter in the background of the fighting as the police/army/spec ops tried hunting you down

    those games got all the little things right and all the big things wrong

    daim shaim

    also the combat is more like dynasty warriors

    Man, it's closer to River City Random than any of those.

    It isn't anything like either, really

    And Prototype gets a bad rap! I really liked those games, they were really dumb and a lot of fun

    This game is more like a beat-em-up/brawler. Like it probably has more in common with God of War than anything, now that I think about it--basic button combos and cinematic nonsense, except Yakuza has a tad more depth to its combat with its dodges and whatnot

    Any game that lets you grapple a helicopter by shooting a chain out of your hand and hookshotting yourself to it so you can slam it on the ground is a great game.

    It being dumb is exactly why it was great!

    So I can't decide if the very bluntly stated "lack of interest in women" both the Y0 protags have is a terrible Bruce Wayne-esque nerd projection "I've got no time for women while I'm BROODING" thing or if it's a implication they're hella gay

    I would say it's more a cultural thing.

    If I'm not mistaken they have love interests later on in the series, or at least Kiryu does

    Karaoke is so easy.

    Batting... I am failing at batting so hard.

    The one karaoke I've done in the tutorial felt really janky but otherwise fun and the shift into being a music video was incredible

    This game is weird and great.

    So, it's a Yakuza game.

    People were talking about those videos as 'softcore porn' so much that I was curious and played a couple in game.

    All I saw was incredibly tame and boring. I mean, it does have to pass console censorship standards. And I question their inclusion in tje first place.

    But the couple I watched weren't even lewd. O.o

    I'm generally liking rush style, but the lack of a grab is bumming me out

    Haven't figured out where I'm supposed to be burning heat

    The only heat attacks I've found in rush are the ones you get as they're trying to get back up.

    There's a list of avaliable heat moves in the menus.

    Rush also has heats on stunned opponents.

    It's probably just that brawler feels like traditional Yakuza series combat, so it's familiar to me and I know when and where and how to burn heat effectively.

    Rush is pretty wildly different, so I have to think and hunt for opportunities. Best usage is probably a lot more weapon heats instead of environmental attacks from grabs.

    I am

    crushingly disappointed

    this game does not feature changeable clothes

    think of all the incredible opportunities for extravagant 80s fashion we're missing out on
