???? NO Yakuza game has ever scored that high... *faints*

I really know nothing about Yakuza games. But, I'm now against giving Sega money, in any way. Spitting on your fans will do that to you.

You should be able to very easily find Yakuza 3/4 used if your that adamant about not supporting Sega. But keep in mind that by buying these games used, your money won't go towards supporting localization of future Sega titles.

However Sega has offended you, the experience you'll have with Yakuza games will MORE than make up for it.

Based on what I've heard, and the trailer I just watched, it seems like a martial arts, japanese, Grand Theft Auto. I understand why some people would be excited, but it's not for me.

I've already thought about buying used (only from Sega, since I strongly prefer new). Sega just doesn't make any games that interest me, anymore, anyway. I really don't care if they ever release a game here, again. I really just want them to go out of business, and sell of their licenses (specfically the Shining license, to Camelot).

I'm curious, what has Sega done wrong?

Anyway, Yakuza 5 has the complete version of Virtua Fighter 2 playable in the arcade, with online!!! How cool is that?

At first, I just didn't like what they did to the Shining series. Then, we sent a "package of appreciation" to both Sega and Camelot, begging them to get back together, to create a true Shining Force game. The reaction? Tsuyoshi Sawada (new lead of the Shining series) replied, basically calling us trolls, and laughing at us, for liking the old series. I'm not kidding, and I'm not overexaggerating. He literally pointed and laughed at the fans, and put up his middle finger. I've never seen such a lack of professionalism...

Then, to top it all off: Recently, Sega has been taking down any video dealing with the old Shining series, to show off the new series. My channel was completely closed down. TotalBiscuit got 2 strikes on his account. 1 more, and he's gone.

First of all, Fair Use allows these videos to be posted, but Sega knows that a bunch of YouTube users aren't going to spend the time, and money, to take them to court over it. So, they're picking on us.

Secondly, part of the reason for this, is that their new game is called "Shining Ark", which is incredibly similar (in name only) to their old game, called "Shining the Holy Ark". That's their own fault, for making such a stupid marketing mistake. Yet, we're the one's who suffer, so their new game will be at the top of YouTube searches.

So, yes, I have reasons for loathing Sega as much as I do. Sega is run by children, who like to throw temper tantrems. Namely, one Tsuyoshi Sawada, who hates us for not liking his games.

I see.

Sounds fair enough.

Shame, as the Yakuza games are very good.

Wow. This just made me 100X more excited for this game. I love the Yakuza series and to hear that its scores are this high? *Faints*

I can't wait. I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope that it will be localized SOON!
