Becoming a Yakuza

Becoming a Yakuza

This post (6/31) is part of the Blaugust Reborn event! You can find out more about the event at Belghast’s blog. I (Chestnut) created a Twitter list of all participants. Armagon created an OPML file of all the bloggers to import into your feed reader.

Sunday I got into my first Yakuza game ever—Yakuza 0. I’ve been watching Sushi and Elly play various Yakuza games for a while (I can never seem to catch Ty when he’s streaming!), and they look like fun. But I’ve always postulated that fighting games (and shooters) aren’t my jam, so I’ve never really delved into them outside of one or two attempts at different titles (of which I couldn’t even name, now).

Having won Sushi’s most recent subscriber giveaway, I found Yakuza 0 sitting in my library. And since I was having fun watching the ladies play, I figured it was worth at least giving it a try myself (on the easiest setting, of course).

And you know what? I had a blast! I’m engaged in the story, the fighting pieces feel relevant and I’m not beating my head against a wall on them, and I’m enjoying the humor a lot (the “fisting master” piece broke me—approx 1:27:00)!

I’m looking forward to playing more of it and working my way through the story.

  1. I sort of accidentally end up taking a nap on Sunday and missed your stream. I will have to catch the VOD later.

    Anyway, glad you are enjoying the game too and welcome to the clan, sister. 😉

    1. Haha, naps are awesome! 😀 And you’re not obligated to hang out! 🙂 And I’m glad to be part of the clan! 😉
