Got into Yakuza 0 and Kiwami recently, and I am looking forward to Kiwami 2, as well as the 3, 4, and 5 Remasters. Gonna hold off on 6 til I get through them.

I've seen LPs of them before, and as stupid as it is, the secret brother of Kazama that was a CIA nigga, the one that was never mentioned again in future installments, was hilarious.

I don't know much about it, how bad is it?
It's really not that bad and it actually works. My biggest issue with DRM is that it's pointless because it gets cracked immediately but Dunuvo usually holds up for weeks if not longer. Some people say it makes games run slightly worse but I've never noticed personally.

Found out that Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 will have remasters but unfortunately there's no new stuff from the original in the sense that nothing that was cut will be added back

Alright, the game unlocked. It looks like there has been some polish done with this one. However, the opening cutscene video just froze while the audio kept going. I press some buttons on my gamepad and I crash back to desktop.
Dumbfuck me has to force the game to use my graphics card.
I'll keep everybody updated.

Not an issue for me.

Game runs smooth as butter on max settings.

Do recommend that gamepads are preferable though. Keyboard is viable, but the gamepad is better.

Real Yakuza use Gamepads (TM Sega).

Now I'm sure somebody will get to it faster then me but I'm real curious if the texture for the biker gang jacket got cleaned up.

I'm having issues with the game stuttering and dropping framerate. Somehow, going into task manager and setting the game on high priority seems to fix that, but going in and out of the game just to do so is pretty annoying. Fun so far otherwise, this little karaoki game with a plot is pretty good.

So how much different is the combat in Yakuza 3 in comparison to later games in the series?
