        Yeah, series doing better overseas is great news. I've been a fan since day 1, and glad to see more people enjoying them. And yes, a English physical release of 5 is needed, as is an uncut Eng version of 3.

      Platinum trophy get on Hokuto Ga Gotoku. Loved almost every minute of it, best combat and bosses in any Yakuza game no doubt.

        I see, how's the violence level? I read that the series is quiet intense in term of gore?

        Violence is sorta muted compared to the manga/anime as Sega wanted to avoid the highest rating in Japan (Cero Z), so you see enemy heads explode and muscles contort but that's about it. Bodies fade to black as the violence happens to hide most of the graphic stuff.

        rajat - Me too, that's my first priority, then afterwards I'll concentrate on more imports. So even if I never achieve the dream of owning every Vita game, I'll at least have a complete set for a region. :)

        Bragging about your setup is a no-go without pictures! I want to see what 414 Vita games looks like in the flesh (or well, in the flesh on a picture digitally transferred to appear on my screen, but... you get the idea)

        Nice! Going to download that after work today. Never got around to playing the original Yakuza 2 (despite owning it) because it doesn't run on my fat PS2. Looking forward to the remake!

        Yeah. its a dual layer PS2 game so it has issues running (same with mine, needed a new PS2 in the end!)
        Its a quality remake from what I can tell, should be one of the best games released this year at this rate.

        What's worse is when you find a great deal, think you have the game, and later find out you don't. And the price has gone up since you saw the deal. I've got a list of games I own on my phone, but I'm horrible about keeping it updated.

        I'm completely ignoring the Switch atm (no offence like). Probably a massive mistake tho. When my Niece is a little older I bet she'd love to play 2 player, and I bet the damn games we'd play will go up in price!

        I agree about the Switch being like the Vita in many ways. Getting that indie support, plus all the Nintendo games and its getting some nice other games as well. I can see me spending more money on the Switch next year for sure!

        Not many. 5? Maybe slightly longer. Its a short game, it only takes a couple of hours to play through on the neutral ending, and depending how close you were to the pacifist ending initially you can get the pacifist ending in an extra hour or so. Genocide is a fairly quick run since you avoid all puzzles, with your only goal to kill everything. And really there are only two tough bosses in the game.

        And then, almost all the playtime on the genocide ending is against the final boss of that route. As its easily the toughest thing to do in the entire game.

        Even though I am not a fan of HD ports, I'd gladly welcome one for the Yakuza series. Sega could bundle it with past games that were never released outside Japan (physically or digitaly), or just make it an overall compilation disc.

        That's sort of a possibility. We are getting the remake of 1 (in English) this year, and the team have talked about remaking 3-5 for the PS4. I'd imagine 2 will be the next full remake, since its the only one still running on the PS2 engine. I'd kill for a Kenzan remaster, I loved the Japanese version but would love a even nicer port for the PS4!
