Kazuma Kiryu's story finally comes to a close, though there's still time for him to get an additional family member. Are his adventures in babysitting worth the wait?

    So your basic logic behind scoring the gameplay is "Ooh, game A didn't do things like game B, so points knocked off for that." Sorry, I don't consider that professional journalism.

    I have Zero still in shrink wrap, and I'll get to it someday.

    That's some ridiculous logic there. We're talking about the latest entry in a series that doesn't do something as well as an older entry, so yeah that's a justified complained. And seriously, throwing around "this isn't professional journalism" like this is some exposé? It's one part of a review about a game in a series. It's not like it's being compared to Pokemon or something like that. Get real.

    A) Ain't none of get paid [visit gameflyoffer.com/rpgamer so I don't get fired]
    B) ain't none of claim to be journalists (no for reals none of our job titles reflect any aspiration to actual work)
    C)she's reffing the last freaking game in the franchise, y'know the one that came out 5 months ago? there's grounds for the comparison
    D) Take off, ya hosehead.

    I bet every single reviewer who has played the series front to back,
    (like Sam has) would point out to fans when something could be a potential downgrade. Almost every review of a game in a series is going to site other entities, because it's almost like it's the perfect reference point. Particularly on a series like yakuza where each entry is a direct sequel and have had multiple releases within a years time for comparison. Its clearly explained in the text that she felt that simplifying the battle stances was a negative, and this echoes pretty much every importers impression that I have read.

    Best not to worry about his comment. Turns out it was just a long-time troll returning once again.
