They're really pumping out these Yakuza games now...

I feel Sega should keep em coming. Great franchise, but the only glaring issue is the overuse of textboxes in order to forward the story instead of actual voiced character interaction. The textboxes take away some of the immersion you have from the experience.

..then again, the reason Yakuza games can have over 100 side missions is because of the use of textboxes. Imagine how much more money would have to be paid to voice actors in order to voice EVERY conversation in a Yakuza game! Don't know if Sega would be willing to do that.

Completely agree. It's very annoying when they do it between great cinematics.
One thing I'm hoping for is that they hire better translators. Sometimes I pick up what they say in Japanese and the translation completely misses it.

It's amazing how fast they make these games. Yakuza 3, Yakuza Kenzan, Yakuza 4, Yakuza Dead Souls and now Yakuza 5.

That's great,so I suppose we'll have to wait until March or September 2013 for an english release

They really need to do something with the environments - everything seems so plastic and dead - there's virtually no interactivity and everything is so lifeless. It really detracts from the immersion.
