I didn't even realize the last thread died. Anyways Kiwami 2 is out on PC now, and it looks like Special K can now disable DOF. I'll try it a little later, but probably just going to get black screen with Special K overlay again.

Neat. I may try it but some people in that thread complain about not being able to launch the game and just see a Special K logo. I would rather not go through the trouble of reinstalling if it doesn't work. Plus, the FPS for me is actually much better in Sotenbori for some reason

You don't have to reinstall, it's just like 3 files you paste into the directory with the YakuzaKiwami2.exe, and if it doesn't work you just delete those three files. It doesn't overwrite anything.

I dropped the game around chapter 10

The combat is really awful. It started off neat but the novelty wore thing 2 chapters in and it devolves into shitty dynasty warriors esque gameplay with 0 precision on anything and every fight ends up in either complete domination or trading hits until you inevitably win because nothing registers properly.

The boss fight with Shindo is really fucking bad and highlights how awful the combat is. 5 quick punches and he changes phases and since he can just guard whenever he wants and cancel out of anything into a dodge attack trying to learn his moveset or react to anything is just a waste of time.


85750d  No.16471263

>>16471251

Oh and I forgot about the grabs. In this game the throw is changed to a shitty spinning move. Same for all the throw finishers. Except it gets interrupted whenever the guy you're spinning hits a wall and you don't even do any extra damage for slamming them into the walls. However enemies have amazing throws that you cannot dodge. They can just go from complete neutral into a throw that locks you in the animation with no way to escape. Theres a special move you can learn from a primer that allows you to counter enemies who grab you except its fucking useless since no enemy grabs you and you can't use it to counter those inescapable throws.

Are people really having such trouble with the PC port? It doesn't run quite as well as Kiwami but it's a satisfactory performance. Plus it doesn't have this shitty letterboxing the dragon engine games had on PS4 so that's a plus.

>>16471251

Nobody's going to argue 6/K2 combat is anywhere as good as 0/K I think. It's pretty obvious, same with the experience system. Basically it's going back to before 0 with a physics engine and blocks that interrupts your strings. Not an absolute deal breaker, but a letdown for sure.

I wonder what the anons playing only on PC will say once 6 comes after 3-5. I bet it will feel really weird to have two similar games after this kinda gap

Also is it just me or is extreme heat fucked? I try to activate it at full gauge but it won't bust out.

Its worse than the original 2's combat by a long shot.

One of the biggest things Yakuza 2 had over Yakuza 1 was that enemies weren't pushovers with no health. K2 pisses all over that.

Did you unlock it just now or have you used it before? Because a lot of people (including myself) don't realize that they need to buy the ability after learning it.

Dragon Engine's combat made me really miss the old one, especially since you get so overpowered that pretty much every fight in the game is a complete pushover. The final fight against Ryuji had my blood boiling the first time I played it and even 2 years ago when I replayed 2 on an emulator it captured the same feeling, but in Kiwami 2 he becomes such a pushover purely due to the fact that Kiryu becomes stupidly overpowered in both Dragon Engine games, hell since you have more heat moves and techniques in Kiwami 2 I'd argue it's much easier than 6. In the last Ryuji fight in Kiwami 2 I just unleashed Kiryu's autistic rage mode and kept chaining autistic rage heat moves on him until he died, I didn't even get out of autistic rage mode before he was defeated, and this was on LEGEND difficulty.

Same, I find 5 to be much worse. I'd say that 80% of the reason 3 gets so much shit is the hackjob that was the worldwide release. I actually liked the dad parts, but I understand why a lot of people didn't like them since they are often shoehorned into the plot and break the pacing, I think it would be better if only the very beginning had forced dad parts and the rest would be handled through substories.

I know how you feel, allot of the time I don't know how the fuck the game works.

But I found that at the very least a way of winning is to go for 3 of a kind matches, sequences of 3 (1-2-3, - ,5-6-7) or try to make your hand all pairs. and in the process of trying to do this shit just press Square / X to see if you can Riichi after every round, for the most part Ignore when the game asks to Chi, Pon or Kan, sine you won't be able to Riichi if you do.

Unless you're good enough to do the SPoD consistently I suggest you give up on Akira and just do Jeffry's P+K+G because the computer who cheats like a MOTHERFUCKER doesn't know how to react to Jeffry's booty attack but can otherwise read your inputs to an absurd degree.

>>16473752

You mean it's called Ryu ga Gotoku/Like a Dragon in Japan, right? I mean, the Kiwami games are called Kiwami regardless of region. No relation to any taboo, it's just the actual title and if you know anything about the series it's a way more accurate title than Yakuza. When the first game released in the west they just tried to ride on the GTA craze and pushed the criminal angle.

That said, every actual yakuza character in the game won't say that word, but rather gokudou, which is the classy term. Yakuza is actually pretty much an insult.

>>16473752

Yakuza themselves don't use the term Yakuza because more or less translates to useless. They prefer to call themselves gokudō meaning "The Extreme Path", that's probably why it's called Kiwami (extreme). It's also that "Like a Dragon"just doesn't work the same way in English as it does in moon. Even though Yakuza is less fitting considering that Kiryu isn't even in the Yakuza, it still a better title for the west, at least in my opinion.

Yeah, from what I've seen and gathered from nip gameplay footage there's 2 fighting styles, both are completely original though a few heat actions are reused.

The blue fighting style is faster and has more crowd-clearing heat moves and attacks, the red one is stronger, has much more attacks that break guard and therefore seems to be designed against single, tough targets.

Yes, Blue has a bunch of heat actions where you straight up just take out 4 guys while Red has none of that, also in Blue the main character kind of spins around like a jewish toy so it has wide sweeping attacks designed to hit multiple guys, Red's attacks are very linear.

I didn't think Gravure Photo Shoot would be so fun. I know it's an offshot of that chat minigame from 6 but I really like how intuitive and fluid this system is. It's less absurd and funny and more comfy.

For those who haven't bought into the PS4 meme, there's a really similar minigame in 6 where Kiryu livechats with a camwhore in live action, but seeing how he's an action dad awkward with computers, you have to make him type short and very autistic looking compliments, along the line of "MORE BOOBS". It turned out to be more about the absurdity of it than the lewdness itself. There's a case to be made about both.

Alright, so I just finished Kiwami 2 and my final opinion is: eh. It seems like, because they had to focus so much on the new engine, they neglected everything else. The result is a very pretty tech demo with a noticeable lack of substance.

The casino doesn't have any people in it, there's only one kind of poker, the coliseum is ridiculously grindy, there's no side quest story line like Pocket Circuit or Mesuking, Sotenbori has barely any side quests, no billiard, Memejima's construction mini game is god awful, a lot of the cutscenes look pretty weird because they're using the same animations as in the PS2 original and the combat system is a whole another can of worms.

Kiryu's punches feel like you're attacking with sponges, the new ragdolls are stupid and broken, tiger drop is absolute garbage, they removed the option to kick people on the ground, they removed the gore Yakuza 6 had (can't tell if this was done to appease the Chinese market or because Jap censorship has gotten more strict over the past few years), the new dynamic street encounter system is nice but enemies take way too long to actually initiate a fight, heat actions have some weird kind of cooldown, Kiryu feels like he has a lot fewer options, the new charge attacks are absolutely useless and I don't get why they're a thing, about the only thing I really liked about the combat was the extreme heat mode. That said, I still liked the game and I think that it has a lot of good things too, and that switching to the Dragon Engine was a good decision. I just feel like there's a lot of missed potential and I hope that Judge Eyes won't disappoint.

Of course, all of this is my opinion, what did you guys think of it?

Look, I will never contest the fact that dragon engine games are a definite step down, but I have to temper your criticism a bit.

>there's no side quest story line like Pocket Circuit or Mesuking

There is. Cabaret Club and Majima Construction. Whether you like them or not is of no importance. They're here. It also kind of sounds like you played Kiwami but not 0.

>Memejima's construction mini game is god awful

Boy, you should have seen how it was in 6. It's not a great side activity by any means but in 6 it was so brain dead simple it's debatable it even had a fail state. Kiwami 2 at least added some form of threat.

>they removed the option to kick people on the ground

Outright false, you just have to kick people on the ground and send them flying organically. There's even upgrades to how much damage the dude to send careening into his allies deals. If there's one thing the dragon engine did right, it's this.

>the new charge attacks are absolutely useless and I don't get why they're a thing

Heavy charge attack usually misses, but light charge attack staggers a ton and is a great counter to that block-while-mid-combo annoyance.

Overall though, I do absolutely agree the dragon engine could do much better than what we got and that they should have fixed more from 6 to Kiwami 2 than they did.

Hidenori Shoji, the same guy who did the original.

Fun fact: Sega SOMEHOW couldn't get the rights to remix tracks composed by Sakamoto and unlike every other game in the series where Shoji composed the majority of the in-game tracks, with most tracks which weren't composed by him being used in a minor way, in Yakuza 2 him and Sakamoto had a somewhat even amount of contribution coupled with the fact that Sakamoto's tracks weren't just used in minor ways like being in a minigame or in just one scene, many of them were boss music or story battle themes - examples include Shindo's theme, Hayashi's theme, the two Tigers' theme, the theme when fighting against the Omi goons, when fighting gook goons and many more. The replacement tracks are much worse because they're just boring buttrock. Sakamoto also composed about 4 tracks which would feature in sidequest battles, however in Kiwami 2 they didn't even bother with that, they just put in either Push Me Under Water or Outlaw's Lullaby depending on where the sidequest battle took place.

Just got done with the completion list in Kiwami 1. it's was going though mostly the same as stuff as Yakuza 0, but Man Kiwami gets really stingy when it comes to gettting 100 weapons, 0 made this part seem easier since there was that whole aspect of the game where you sent agents out searching for weapons so you got most things that way, but Kiwami really wants you to scrape every nook and cranny for the weapons and equipment. Thankfully when it came to things you can only get from trading in gambling I managed to score a ton of points from using the 10-10-1 cheat item in Koi-Koi, I was worried I'd have spend an while to grinding out a bunch of wooden tags.

>There is. Cabaret Club and Majima Construction. Whether you like them or not is of no importance. They're here. It also kind of sounds like you played Kiwami but not 0.

I did play 0 and that's why I was so disappointed because 0 had both, pocket racers and real estate.

>Outright false, you just have to kick people on the ground and send them flying organically. There's even upgrades to how much damage the dude to send careening into his allies deals. If there's one thing the dragon engine did right, it's this.

True, I should've expressed myself more precisely, I meant that it's no longer possible to kick people on the ground while standing still, or at least I never got it to work.

>There's even upgrades to how much damage the dude to send careening into his allies deals. If there's one thing the dragon engine did right, it's this.

I liked that too but I found enemies to be a bit too floaty.

>Heavy charge attack usually misses, but light charge attack staggers a ton and is a great counter to that block-while-mid-combo annoyance.

True but I found staggering to be pretty useless since Kiryu no longer has a heat move that only works on staggered/stunned enemies, or maybe I just didn't find it.

It's supposedly a improvement of 6 (which I enjoyed much more than I thought I would) but I didn't get much mileage from Kiwami 2; played one near 100% run (just missing mahjong because fuck that shit) and that was it, got NG+ running in Legend but can't bring myself to go through with it. Some things like Memejima construction and bouncer missions were huge time sinks and I'm rather butthurt over the new OST, stupid thing but music is a make or break element for me and I really like the original's OST. There's also a lot of other things that feel over-simplified which IMO is another thing where the Dragon Engine fails, whether it's simple enemy move sets or lack of unique models like Akira Yamaoka being a goatee n' shades mook.

I don't know if I had legit issues with the game or if I'm just burned out of the series (something Fist of the North Star aggravated a LOT) but I'm not sure if I'll get Judgment and anything with that slimy kike replacing Kiryu is going to be a remarkably hard sell for me. Recently booted up Kiwami 1, gonna try a Legend run (and almost certainly chimp out at the Virtua Cop part) to see if the spark is still there.

>>16484521

Impressive. I did a bit of Premium the other day just for the "play every game" trophy and I don't think I'll do more than that - mahjong felt like some Buddhist hell and Majima pounced me on shogi and pool. Sometimes we can surprise ourselves, I started to enjoy poker and a anon here once gave me a few tips for Koi-Koi and I ended up liking the game but that's about it. I'd like to like the pool mini-game but I can't get make anything out of it and the AI just rails me sideways the second it gets a turn to play.

It's actually really simple once you figure out how to properly aim. Just look up the ruler method. I think someone on the Steam forums wrote a guide on it.

>that slimy kike replacing Kiryu is going to be a remarkably hard sell for me.

I'm kind of excited for Shin Yakuza, I really hope that they make the new character be the opposite of Kiryu. I want sub stories where you for once act like a proper yakuza and commit crimes and a protagonist that doesn't pussy out every time and actually kills people. My dream would also be Yakuza 3 levels of brutality to empathize how ruthless the new guy is, but I know that modern Sega is too cucked, so that most certainly won't happen.

Nothing in particular, I just usually 100% any game that's fun enough to get me too keep playing after the credits roll. The way I play, the majority of the the Completion list is done by the time I get to the end of the game anyway so I don't mind cleaning up on the parts of the game I didn't dig too deep into yet.

Most of the mini games are still fun anyway, and the gabbling is going to naturally be a little addictive

The combat is really fun and all but the problem is that they put in tons of unnecessary grinding just so they could pad it out into a longer game because it obviously has less content than the mainline Yakuza games. If the grinding was at a reasonable level you could've 100%ed the game in about 30-50 hours, but with all the padding it's easily triple that amount.

I don't have a problem with nice protagonists and not every protagonist needs to be an edgy ruthless killer but we've had 6? (don't know what kind of person Ishin and Kenzan Kiryu was) games with the same nice protagonist now, I think it's time for a little bit of variety.


7d2458  No.16485644

>>16485633

Kenzan Kiryu was basically a revenge mission with lots of twists and turns along the way. While Kiryu does kill people as he's supposed to be Musashi and it's a completely weapons-based game, he is FAR from being edgy and ruthless. The most "ruthless" you can be is if you decide to do some of the bounties by bringing the wanted man back dead rather than alive, but that's side content.

>>16485617

Like >>16485628 anon said. The devs likely felt obligated to put out a game where the player sinks 100h or something as with the Yakuza games but there isn't enough content to justify it so the completion list is padded to absurd degrees and every side activity will wear out its welcome before you're even done with it and even then you'll have to keep playing to get it done. Could have been a really good 30-40h game you'd want to replay every now and then but instead you'll get a 100+h game you'll never want to touch again.

The leveling system also completely ruined the game. Basically Kenshiro does very light damage that eventually stuns a opponent and opens him up for a secret technique (the equivalent of a HA) that almost always kills but as you level up and get AT upgrades, you'll be killing peons in two jabs and furthermore, the bigger the level difference between you and a enemy, the easier it is to get them in Meridian Shock state and because the game is so goddamned grindy, you'll guaranteedly blow past the stage's level cap.

It's a real shame to see a game that is really good at its core completely ruined by asinine game design decisions. With more content and some things better thought out, it could have easily been a 10/10 of the genre.

>>16485585

The only gambling hall game that you have to actually learn is Koi-Koi and even then many moons ago an anon found an exploit where you can just go for the ribbons and never call Koi and trash the AI at even expert difficulty. Oicho-kabu is just Asian blackjack, while Cee-lo and Cho-han are literal gambles since there's no real skill you could gain which would mitigate the odds of losing.

7d2458  No.16485717

>>16485690

Nah, the story is VERY loosely based on Musashi's life, the game ends with him dying trying to fight off a literal army just the day after he fucked and married Majima's adoptive daughter (by the way, he also fucked her sister much earlier in the story but she was sadly killed by bandits). Itto Ittosai for example wants revenge after the Tokugawa killed his family for not wanting to join them, while in real life Ittosai was not only in bed with the Tokugawa, his swordsmanship school was one of the two official schools of the Tokugawa, along with the Yagyu Shinkage school. Speaking of the Yagyu Shinkage school, Yagyu Munenori is actually Sasaki Kojiro, the latter is just his pseudonym just like Musashi adopts the pseudonym Kiryu Kazumanosuke. Also, in the beginning Kiryu joins the Eastern Army at Sekigahara, but has to be on the run after he was basically sent to a suicide mission and after he somehow didn't die he had to escape the Tokugawa chasing after him, while in reality he was on the side of the Western Army and narrowly escaped death after Ishida got defeated by the fat tanuki jew Ieyasu. Also, Haruka is actually Ieyasu's granddaughter. Also, he didn't commit genocide on the Yoshioka school like in real life, he just killed the eldest brother Seijuro and saved Denshichiro from a student revolt, not to mention that in game Siejuro was the master swordsman while Denshichiro only had master rank due to being part of the family, while in real life it was the complete opposite. Also, Tenkai, that guy who is widely believed to be Akechi Mitsuhide in disguise, is the final boss who wants to do some crazy plot to take over Japan, he's a Jingu boss fight, which is really anticlimactic. Also for some reason they never make the Tenkai is Mitsuhide connection in Kenzan unlike pretty much every other game that romanticizes the period that I can think of which has Tenkai in it.

Ever since Yakuza 3 they have been adding niggers and nothing bur niggers to the game.

Sure in 1 and 2 you had Gary but in 3 you have niggers in suits walking down the street like its ordinary. Its just niggers too, no whites at all. I guess its kind of appropriate for the game with glow in the dark CIA niggers but then you have Kiwami 2 inserting even more of them when the base game had almost none.

I somehow dont enjoy clan creator thing.

I was hoping that Kiwami 2 wouldn't turn into bullshit by the end of the story, but the golden castle with the tigers had me corrected. And even if I were to forgive that one, the flashback with young Kazuma would yet poison the well.

Truly the same buffons behind the rubber bullets and evil father twin.

Position melees at the start and move around a few units with rocket launchers. Don't even start playing if you don't got units with repair, healing and an antiboss buff.

>Heavy charge attack usually misses,

I use it all the time, either running against groups or as a finisher. Even after getting the lotus combo, I keep it charged for one last hit.

They're supposed to be americans, fam. Like the baseball player in Kiwami 2. You'd be surprised at how many countries associate America with niggers, even in Yrop.

I'd like to soft reboot the series, with a sequel to Yakuza 0 with more adventures of Kiryu and Nishki. Yakuza 1 cornered itself from the get go, when they had the MC age in prison to tell a story of friends separated by life. But outside of that very specific theme, all of Yakuza plays better with a young rising protagonist.
