Even with cuts, Kazuma will still crush your face. 0

Where the hell do I begin?   To talk about Yakuza 3, one has to immediately begin divulging on the sad history of this series: Specifically how it's been handled outside of it's native Japan. Even if you have a little to no interest in the game, you probably have read the stories of a little company called Sega, and it's confusing relationship with little game franchise it owns called Yakuza.             Yakuza, or Ryū ga Gotoku (“Like a Dragon”) as it's known in Japan has almost become an ev...
