Great OT.

Just a few corrections, Kenzan was actually the first PS3 game for the series and Ishin is not a sequel for Kenzan.

I particularly love the part where he speaks "Moshi moshi" to the auricular like a boss, but will probably make the gif too long

Yakuza 4's ending boss battles were so damn sick. The entire cutscene that led up to the fights really the set the tone. I love Kazuma, but Akiyama is that fucking dude.

Work in progress, but has a good amount of substories done.

I also use the Japanese wikis for these, mainly.

So unless you feel up to importing, the PS2 versions remain the only way to play them in English.

Wait, does the HD collection have an English option?

good thread.

i really like the series. i dont have explicit rankings for the games (i have played 1,2, and 3) but my impression is that 3 gets a lot of hate, which i dont think is warranted. i plan to play 4 sometime this year. a release date for 5 would probably provide the impetus i need to get started.

i would love to play kenzan and ishin but only speak english.

For anyone that has imported Ishin, will I easily be able to get from beginning to platinum by using that one fan translation site? I've never imported a game before, and dont speak or read any Japanese whatsoever. I am really interested in the game, but highly highly doubt it will come to the U.S.

Yeah I was suppose to point out that Kenzan was the first title on the PS3 and that Ishin isn't a sequel to it, I just kinda crashed after I made my post also you didn't link to the OT for Ishin, the person who made it said it looked nice!

Hell yeah Majima(Kiryu too) for VF6, since he had won the poll for most popular RGG character, he's been getting more cameos and more time in the spotlight, which is a good thing.

Yeah the "Like a dragon" movie is just bad, they focus WAAAAY too much on these other characters who, are doing their own thing(its supposed to be like substories) and it makes the movie feel disjointed then it keeps going back and forth and is just a mess. The parts with Kiryu and Majima are good even if Majima's eyepatch is on the wrong eye haha.

I haven't watched the black panther live action stuff either but I think I remembered people saying it was good, I'll check it out when I have time to see if its more true to the games than "Like a dragon" should have been.

Yes it is more than easy now thanks to people like KHHSUBS who, has tirelessly worked on his own translated guides for the sake of anyone who, has ever been interested in wanting to play the Ryu Ga Gotoku series. His Ishin guide is very in-depth and I highly recommend it and I myself used it on my second platinum run through of Ishin.

The Japanese wikis are also in-depth(and my first choice), sure some use of google translate is needed but they are for the most part easy to understand.

kouryakutsushin

dswiipspwikips3.jp (also has a youtube channel so even more in-depth for the walkthroughs)

Course if you have any questions, well can just ask also.

I'm thinking of going the extra mile and make a giveaway of a Y5 code if Amazon offers it for sale.
Yes Amazon will sell codes for PSN digital games.

I love that game. There's nothing like running through a horde of zombies to get to a Hosting joint to establish a little romance followed by a lightly "Thank you for last night" delivered vie in game text message.

You can't get that type of uses case anywhere else. Not in any OTHER GAME!

Much love to Dead Souls!

For non console related pre-order stuff, this by far has got to be the best that they did for Ishin.

Next was the flask they did for Zero.
