@redwing42: i'll have to level-set my expectations when i start.. how do you like it story wise?
Only at Chapter 5 to this point, but I think the first act of the game is an interesting change of pace, and it is kind of fun to see big shot Kiryu dealing with small town politics. Really, it is just the combat that is a drag so far, and it isn't terrible, but it is VERY dated compared to 0/Kiwami/K2.
I don't have a problem with the idea of the Bullet Club, but I'd much rather they actually just go around fucking shit up like they used to instead of just banking on the name recognition. I get that they are playing to that a bit with Callus talking about how the Bucks aren't what they used to be, but you just can't play that outsider role when the principals are all management.
Struggling a bit with Yakuza 3 now myself. Partially because I decided to do all the sidequests as they opened, instead of just getting some and then cramming the rest in during certain lulls in the story like I normally do. Mostly, though, because the combat is many many steps below the more recent games. Plus, I've found a different outlet for my mahjong needs, so I haven't been putting in many hours on the PS4 lately.
Even an ok dynamite is fun to watch. Though I watch with a weekly group nowadays, it's always a breeze and there's usually something that stands out even in average episode. JD Drake is fuckin awesome btw.
I'm becoming a fan of Drake also, but it was a very WWE move to put him in a singlet for his Dynamite showcase when he has been wrestling on YouTube in just trunks.
@hansolol: So, who does Death Triangle get to oppose Statlander? Rosa would be awesome, but not sure if they want to keep her more of a face. The nice thing with AEW is that they are very comfortable with letting almost everyone be complex characters instead of pure face or heel.
