YAKUZA Series Discussion
« on: February 07, 2017, 07:14:28 AM »
I bought Yakuza 0 last week. I can't stop playing it. The story is great and I can manage a cabaret club to earn money. The substories are very interesting to play through.

How does the hostess club stuff work in 0?  I remember in Yakuza 3 it just didn't give enough feedback as to why your girls were or weren't popular.

Yakuza 3 had the bulk of those features stripped out for the US release, I believe. It's since been beefed up (or kept in tact) for the sequel's.
You should probably put your bandit hat on now.

Yeah, I meant 4, not 3.   Forgot 3 was the one that they removed that shit from.

Okay in the beginning you have platinum hostess you can level up through mini games. You can also choose her outfit. You have to recruit hostesses to work in your club. There are two ways to do that I know of:

First, you can spend completion points and recruit hostesses. Second, by completing side stories, you can recruit those ladies.

Running the club is trial and error. Each patron wants a certain type of girl and later on they'll want particular hostess. Try to match hostesses that make each patron happy.If they are upset, they will cause trouble in the club. On occasion a hostess will need something: towel, ashtray, glass, or menu at a table. You will have to step in and deliver it. When a patron is done, make sure to visit the table and thank them at least. At the end of each session, each hostess used will gain XP and level up. I think the highest level is 30.

Also, you can bribe local businesses to bring customers into your club.

So what is the point of all of this?

First off, you gain money every time you play this game. After you get a certain number of fans, the local club owner will challenge you to a club battle. Whoever raises the most money in a shift wins. You can challenge them whenever you want and how ever many times it takes you to win. If you lose, you won't win any money. If you win, you get that club's platinum hostess and the club story line continues. Also, Majima expands his fighting styles when this is completed. The opposing club owners will use dirty tactics on you, so make sure your ready to take them on. The hardest club battle was the last one.

That's mostly it but I left out a few parts.

I've been watching the Giant Bomb guys play this and it almost made me buy a PS4 a few weeks ago.

This is my GOTY so far (granted, I haven't played stuff like Horizon yet).  It's just really fun running around beating people up and I really dig the story so far.  Majima's intro is such a great scene.

I haven't even unlocked the real estate and cabaret stuff yet.

I know the remake of the first one is due in August so I'll probably pick that up too, especially since it's only gonna be $30.

I actually have been playing it since January...I took a break after grinding through the real estate fun and I think I need another piece of the story done to finish the hostess club mini game.  Both are addictive...

Also, bowling is a lot of fun.

FUCK UFO CATCHERS.  Goddamn scams they are.

I know doing well in sidestories gets you better rewards.....but MAN some of the dumb answers you can give are tempting.  The localization team did such a great job with the dialogue and I just wanna be in that world of decadent 80s Japan.

I just unlocked the real estate minigame and will soon get the cabaret started.

Goodbye outside world.  It's been a while since I've had that "I need to stop, but let me just do this ONE LAST thing and then I'll save" feeling with a game.

Just about to do the final mission.  I really want to go and play the rest of this series because they do such a great job establishing the world and the main protagonists that I want to see where the story goes from here.

Yakuza Kiwami is a remake of the sequel to the game. It comes out soon, so you should play it.

Wonder why this is $50 when Kiwami 1 was only $30.  Is Yakuza 2 that much meatier of a game?

IIRC 2 was definitely a bigger game.

I got Yakuza 6 yesterday. Someone on GameFaqs mentioned Puyo Puyo and Virtua Fighter 5 were the arcade games. I headed over there and started playing those for close to an hour. I might not finish the game and spend all my yen there.

Cool. I wasn't a fan of 4 when I played it on the PS3 but I'll stick with it this time.
