Next Yakuza Title Announced for Japan


There is a new Yakuza title in development for PS3. Apparently, the previous Yakuza title, “Kenzan”, was a spin-off from the main series, and was not the official Yakuza 3 as previously believed.

If you are confused, here is a quick overview:

Game Title Console Japan Release USA + Europe Release
Yakuza PS2 Dec 2005 Sep 2006
Yakuza 2 PS2 Dec 2006 Sep 2008
Yakuza: Kenzan PS3 Mar 2008 Unknown
Yakuza 3 PS3 Unkown Unknown

Here’s a pic from PS3 Yakuza Kenzan featuring a character played by the famous model Yinling of Joytoy

Yakuza 2 Coming with Subtitles


Yakuza 2 Coming to the West with english subtitles Way nicer than a dubbed voice over.

Sega, how about Yakuza 3? Does it really take two or three years to localize for the west?

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed gameplay wrapped into one bundle of joy


Inside of me the hype I feel for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is slowly reaching a boiling point which hopefully will explode this summer. After so many subpar Star Wars games could this new title be a wonderful next-gen experience wrapped in Star Wars lore?

The only thing that could possibly worry me is could levitating enemies get a bit boring once the novelty has worn off?

Kane and Lynch sells 1 Million Copies… no really



Don’t you love it when a “Average” at best game can still sell 1 Million copies? It’s like “50 Cent:Bulletproof” all over again.Gamedaily has the news on the shocking report.

I completed the single player of Kane and Lynch and to me the game just felt very average. The aiming system is unstable and the hit detection is ways off. The “Fragile Alliance” multiplayer mode is fun when played correctly. I hate the little punks who just start killing everyone in the beginning of the game for no apparent reason.

Reminder: “Fragile Alliance” is supposed to be your teammates and you working together to kill the cops and steal money. When you see one of your fellow Mercs heading to the getaway van, then you can pop them and steal the loot… UGH!

Fable 2 Video Diary Ep. 4: World Design



Fable 2 is still being molded up at Lionhead Studio’s and what better way to remind all of us that it still exist than a video diary. This one is about world design. If only Peter Molyneux’s trance inducing voice could guarantee that he and his team won’t bite more than they can chew this time around. Check out the video after the break or head on over to for this video and/or the first three if you haven’t already seen them.
