Two new gameplay videos from TGS 07. The 1st shows free roaming, exploration and some mini games, and the 2nd video shows the battle system in action.
i hope this one turns out good. not like the other one...
Well i loved the 1st one. The 2nd never played because it never been released outside japan, and i hope Yakuza 3 at least gets released overseas.
The game play look's boring if you ask me,But well see...
It plays alot like Shenmue, some ppl also found Shenmue boring and for me its one of my favorite games of all time.
Agreed. You should play the first yakuza if you like shemune. This game is boring are you kidding me?? you would have to be totally against the new setting if thats the case, I guess no one watched the second video. What does it not have enough guns or grenades for you??
It looks and moves like Shenmue games, which i like to be honest. Hopefully there is more fighting in it.
are you serious?? did you not watch the second vid??? did you even play yakuza on the ps2? it has a lot of fighting. Its just a massive game that there is so much to do you can around and explore and not do much figthing if you don't want to, seriously though, was the second video not enough.. geez
I don't know shemnue but Yakuza is like Final Fight or Double Dragon type fighting action plus free-roam adv or RPG. But I think movie scenes are little bit long and dull as usual in many Japanese games.
2nd vid looked pretty fun. i hope it dont sux
this went from my interest is peaked to, got to have after these videos!!! I love the new feudal japan look!!
Im totally with you mate, its a shame that only games with grenades and shotguns calls the attention of the wester players. Yakuza 1 was a great game and got great reviews and unfortunately sold like s*** outside japan, thats the reason Yakuza 2 never been released here. Western player are very close minded and only see guns and FPS that are all the same.
The only thing ''close minded'' here, was your comment.
How can this game sell well outsite of japan? Turtle racing? ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
this is why 360 sells like crap in Japan, they don't have games that appeal to them. Things in their own sub-culture. American games are mostly one trick ponys. The idea they have is great, but not alot. Turtle racing isn't the main thing of the game its an option that you don't even have to do if you don't want too. They like variety in their games, not the same crap thrown at you over and over instead no wait! this time there are new guns or now its 16 vs 16!!! the 360 is like well the japanese only play rpgs lets give them rpgs!! They are into lots of things. AenimaPT - glad to see i have a brothers in arm!! I hope this game comes out to america more than ever now!!
like everyone else, i'm uninterested in this
im guessing yakuza has taken the call of duty route and gone for a new time setting altogether? was there even a yakuza in fueday japan? i know about the shoguns etc, but i didnt know there was a yakuza
uhmm yeah. the yakuza has been around for ages. IT didn't' just start this century.
Yes, they were. They are crime syndicates by the present. But the origin of the yakuza is a gambler. Yakuza is 8+9+3=0, pronounced yakuza and it means bust in gambles like Black Jack.
please tell me you didnt take a bubble just because i asked that. and thanks for the info uglygreen :)
your welcom. Im glad it helped you. ;) In first vid, there are turtle race scene or dice scene, it's all gambling, it may be a part of mini game in this game.
I REALLY REALLY hope this game releases in the US. If not, I might have to import it.
I want Yakuza 2, loved the 1st one.
That makes us two.
I could do without the period piece.. I'm sure it'll be good, but it doesn't interest me much as of now.
i heard on the 1up podcast that it's coming without english voice over just english subtitles
That would be focking great!!!
Now, I've never been stabbed by a sword, nor had the occasion to lacerate another, but I really hate that squishy sound it makes every time he impales someone.
wOw looks great i must say. I am really digging the new time period let's all cross our finger's and hope this make's it to North America!
I will only get it if Yakuza II comes over here as well. I for one think it looks great it has that Shenmue/Way of The Samurai type thing going on.
Game looks ok but the enemy AI is stupid, they just stand there waiting for the other guy to hit them.
First thing that came to my mind was, that this it something like GTA only jap style :D And I also liked the music, reminded me of Tekken ^_^ Imo, game looks solid, a lot of stuff to do, nice graphics(will be better) and the overall feel, bet will have at least some 50+ hrs
