This begs the question: Is it a spoiler if the press release pretty much points out exactly what's going on?

Ending gives a small pinch of promise, though everything else is, as everyone else has said, awfully generic and stereotypical.

We might as well be shooting flowers at it? The fook?

i really hope this game just goes all out on the corniness, it should be pretty hilarious if that's what they are doing

The ending was the only interesting thing... 
 
The rest... looks just like another generic shooter made by a japanese company targeted towards western sensibilities, without any idea about what that mean. Its like Quantum Theory  all over again.

I have serious doubts this game will be good, or even playable, but that aside - that's a fine name for a video game.

Yakuza? Got my attention.

It looks like japanese version of gears of war where the japanese tries to make badass dudes by putting slapping in the face fights.

Newsflash: a cinematic tells you nothing about the game's execution, and who gives a shit about the narrative or characters in an online game?  From the trailer, I inferred it was Sega's usual over-the-top craziness, but to say the game is going to be 'bad' when you have seen literally nothing of the game is mindless chatter.
Also, for everyone accusing Japan of ripping off the West, a Japanese company came up with the concept of the cover-based shooter in the first place. So there, stop making moronic comments about an industry you know little to nothing about.

Sometimes I wish that you could downvote comments on GB.

@blacklab:  Typical recourse of those who can't substantiate their opinion with facts or arguments.  It should be obvious that the negative comments are premature at this stage: a pre-rendered trailer shows nothing of the actual game.
I'm not saying this game is necessarily going to be good, mind you, but then again most games aren't.
And if it's not my contention that you disagree with, but the tone, it's because I'm getting sick of the borderline racist generalisations about the Japanese game industry.

So far this just looks like a waste of a talented team. It can't be Quantum Theory bad, at the least.

No facts or arguments to made. I just think you're being a jerk. And as far as a typical recourse...yelling 'that's racist' is the original.
#71 Posted by owl_of_minerva (1455 posts) -
@blacklab:  Yes, because referring blanketly to 'the Japanese' or the 'Japanese games industry' in pejorative fashion is the prerogative of those who are not jerks. The logic of racism is to view 'the other' as homogeneous and inferior, by the way. I didn't claim it was based on conscious racism, but it borders on it.

Those droids need a redesign...otherwise I'd like to see how this pans out. Yakuza is a fantastic series.
