At this point i'm not impressed, too much looking at Ninja Gaiden 2 and PGR4 screens

You aren't maximizing your efforts. You should have only mentioned NG2 in this topic, and saved PGR4 for the GT5 topics. That way you could have had 2 troll posts for the price of 1.

Just surprised that as a regular you had no idea of the Ryu ga Gotoku/Yakuza series, which is oft talked about.

I'm quite sure that RGG's talked about a lot, but not so much Yakuza, whatever discussion on GAF about it was replaced by SHOTEK FOCK UP. Yakuza bombed bombed at sales too. Sorry.

Yea... day one. Ryu is such a bad ass. And now he's a bad ass in the Edo period.

Damn it, I need to brush up on my samurai Japanese, I'll probably barely understand it :lol

So this is about Miyamoto Musashi, A.K.A the guy from Vagabond and also a real character in Japanese history, correct?

Well I get it now.

Well Ryu Ga Goto 2 had an absurdly short development period, I guess it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that the 3rd game in the series has a small development period as well. I wonder if they've broken even yet, since Sega said part of the reason they were making the sequel was to recoup the initial investment of the original.

It's unfortunate because looking at that trailer you can really tell they're just taking advantage of the extra power of the PS3 in the most basic way, but the tech seems largely the same as it was on the PS2. It wish they would have tried to push things a little bit more, but most of their budget probably goes to the actors. I liked the idea behind the original, but the bad writing sort of killed it. I was really looking forward to what I thought was going to be a more grounded story taht tried it's best to capture the Yakuza world while adding a video gaming flair, but they really went over the top with it, and the story pacing, character exposition and development, was terrible (though we got a terrible localization that added fuck every second sentence...).

Hopefully, if whatever his name is Japanese Author is returning, then he's learned how to do a good video game narrative off of his experiences with the first two.

All that said, I'm interested in this, and I do really hope that we get a localization or an English sub in the Japanese release. Honestly just give me a good story and have battles happen seamlessly with no battle screen transition and I'll be happy.

Why are people hyped about this? Looks kind of nice and if it plays good I'll check it out. Is this a series or something I've never heard of?

Ryu Ga Gotoku...it's called Yakuza in the states (terrible fucking name if you ask me)...how did you not know this?!

Here's the trailer

http://ryu-ga-gotoku.com/

Graphics looks really good.
SHITCOCK.

Yak 3, MGS4, RE5. 3, 4, 5; my new most anticipated triumvirate.

PLEASE, Sega, for all that is good and just, release this in the US with excellently translated English subtitles, or at least region-free in Japan with excellently translated English subtitles. :(

OMFG @ the trolling in this thread.

I think this looks good, whatever it is. What's the English title?

EDIT: Isn't this Yakuza 3?

What in the hell are you talking about?
The pics. The people standing close to each other and stuff. Not the trailer. I watched that later and it seems clear that there'll be lots of sword-fighting stuff in the game. Don't be angry plz :(

Depends on which part you refer to. Yeah, they probably should make a dating sim with these graphics.
No, this game is probably not so much a dating sim. It's a compliment ffs. The people in this game look secksey.

Hey, look, a three-headed squirrel!
