  1. Also the Fist Of The North Star chat on the last page - it's absolutely worth playing, it's not just a reskinned Yakuza - a completely new (if quite small) city and unique fighting systems make it interesting to any Yak fan. Plus the PS2 jankiness of the wasteland area needs to be seen to be believed. 


     I had previously seen the film but the game is a standalone story so prior knowledge is not required.

  2. Finally got around to starting LAD this week, needed a little break after finishing Judgment a few months back.


    General first impressions are excellent, it's as polished as you'd expect. I'm still not totally on board with the turn based combat, it feels natural for dealing with chumps on the street and in dungeons but was rather jarring in the first proper boss fight after doing all the macho growling and posturing. I'm sure it will feel second nature shortly though.


    Yokohama is excellent so far. I'd genuinely forgotten the excitement of a new city in these games, even Onomichi in Y6 was really bare-bones. Glad to hear Lost Judgment shares the same location. 


    The only thing that has come close to annoying me is that we're expected to believe Sega's flagship arcades in Tokyo had the same games over an 18 year period. Come on! 




  3. @Plissken that handball penalty was bizarre. Weirdly it seemed like the player was preparing to handle it but changed his mind, either way not a red.


    It's so jarring going from the World Cup straight back to the Championship. It's not even a question of quality, a smattering of these players were still around in the knockout stages after all - but the officiating is just night and day. Boro's earlier penalty claim was absolutely stonewall in modern terms but the refs know no-one really gives a shit about the championship so the most scrutiny they'll get is a few angry posts on twitter. 



  4. Well that was a bizarre PPV on Saturday. Boring as fuck main event, Ankalaev is delusional if he thinks that was anything approaching a robbery. For once I agree with White, glad he put them both in their place - Hill vs Glover next month will be a much better fight. 


    Pimblett was awful too, injury or no injury, a co-main on a PPV and you phone it in like that? Topuria will murder him if they ever actually fight. The judging is getting a bit silly for these babyface types, this combined with O'Malley vs Yan doesn't really encourage thoughts of it being a level playing field. 


    Till looked pretty terrible, I really don't know what is next for him. Happy for DDP though, he always puts in a good shift.

  5. And even then he didn't want to get the yellow out at first. All the France players moaning and slapping their shoulders was bizarre - it doesn't matter what part of your body you use, if you steamroll through the back of someone without so much as looking at the ball once there is only going to be one outcome.
