    I'm in Chapter 9 and I think I need someone to explain the real estate game to me

    not the cabaret club though

    I got that shit on lock

    min-max every lady

    Buy properties

    Get paid

    Punch people who get in your way of gettin' paid

    The annoying part of buying properties is that they're not listed on the map, so you're stuck running down storefronts looking for the prompt to show up

    Do not have a cow, mortal.

    I'm pretty sure that if someone cheered me on in a karaoke bar as over the top as Majima does for Rouge of Love, I'd try to get the bartender to cut them off.

    Also my wife saw me recently unlock the cabaret club, so now I don't get to play much anymore because she's too busy managing all the ladies and giving makeovers. But when I DO get to come back to it, I'll likely have a fuck ton of cash.

    So I beat this game today. Damn that was a hell of a game.
    Wasn't expecting the last few hours/ending to be as emotional as it got. I feel real bad for Majima. Guy falls in love with this girl and she doesn't even recognize him and he feels he has to keep it that way so she stays safe. The after credits scene with the watch was a nice touch. Kiryu is a really cool character and I like him and his relationship with Nishkiyama a lot, but Majima's character arc just felt more fleshed out. For those who have played the rest of the series does Makoto Makimura show up in other games?

    Aside from a few hours of 4 this is the first Yakuza game I've really dug into. I cannot wait for Kiwami to come out this summer. Prob going to go back through this game before then on legendary to finish up the side stuff I didn't get around to and get the platinum.

    Out Run is still a great game. I wish it had the original high scores from the arcade though, and an online leaderboard would have been nice. They could have included both versions of the game too, even though the 2nd version (which is the version in the game) is better.

    You should see the Yakuza 2 quests for shogi. Those players are sentient AI hellbent on destroying humanity.

    I think I won one game of shogi on my four days of attempts

    I was also curious how much money you'd make upgrading all the shops to S level during chapter 6 and it ended up being like 55 billion

    How the hell does fishing work

    It says to hit X when you see the red mark disappear, but that hooks nothing

    I'm even using this stupid expensive pole from the pawn shop

    I should probably actually dig up the book thread for this but since Tokyo Vice was recommended here I'll post it here.

    I just got to and finished the chapter on yarusenai and I think I'm done reading for tonight.

    I know it's been mentioned before that the Soundtrack for these games are quite good.

    I'm a big fan of As You Like, the song played during the makeup section.

    Or maybe it's just stuck in my head like an earworm!

    The Karaoke Songs are choice too!

    I'm not seeing any prompts for Heat actions while I'm in the dance fight style with Goro
    Am I missing a setup for them?

    I've only done one heat action in that style so far and I had to learn it specifically from a trainer

    Yakuza 3 was my first game in the series

    I was instantly hooked when I saw that the recap movies for 1 & 2 were 35-40 minutes a piece. Something about a game that demands that kind of attention from me gets me every time.

    You get Mark Hamill as Majima, so there's that.

    It's pretty bad. But it has its moments.

    None of them involving Kiryu.

    You can't make a live action Yakuza movie and have a Kiryu that looks anything like Kiryu

    The man is a broad-shouldered mountain with the best eyebrows this side of Golgo 13, it's damned near impossible

    I tried shogi last night.

    I very quickly realized that shogi is Japanese chess, and I'm already garbage at regular chess.

    I am never playing shogi again.

    Man I love that minigame! It's just simple enough to understand and just hard enough to drive me up the wall on normal difficulty

    I'm getting better at it, though

    Holy fucking shit
    I just saved some random dude from thugs and he gave me a diamond plate that I pawned for 100 million yen
    It's by far the richest I've been in this game and it was just some fucking nobody!

    Yeah, that happened to me, too.

    Saving people feels like one of the best ways to make lots of cash early.

    Neither character's money making games seems very fun
    Kiryu seems alright cause I can just let the collection run while I'm doing other stuff, but Goro's club management is actively a pain in the ass

    I love running the cabaret...just perfectly reading the hostesses' hand signals, making sure every customer is happy, giving makeovers to everyone I can
