The Dragon of Dojima is back once again to play arcade games, run hostess clubs, and bash thugs with varying implements. Kiryu even gets a love interest in Kiwami 2, but who cares about that when there are tigers to fight!

Sam is declared legally dead. Chris’s Batman Cookies set him down a bad path in his life. Kelley’s alien grandpa tells us what Pokémon look like while she ignores her husband. Now excuse us as we shove chocolate down our shirts.
The Yakuza games have allowed players to beat up thugs and explore the streets of Japan for over 15 years. With a dozen different localized releases to choose from, RPGamer takes a crack at helping players figure out where to get into this unique series.
It’s another explicit week, as Sam calls Chris poopy. Anna Marie can’t understand Dutch (even though she likes to think she does), while Pascal imagines he’s eating a sausage. Josh is slowly falling under the spell of Mass Effect Stockholm Syndrome, and somehow Chris is equally obsessed with shoes, jeggings, and dead Google products. Save us.
Pascal surprises everyone. New challenger Robert appears. Josh makes a triumphant return. Anna Marie leaves to go do important kitten things. Kelley proves she’s the best at the Mario’s. And Chris still says it’s not really an Ys game.
Anna Marie briefly stops by to tell us about what she’s been playing while recovering. The Series X has a price now, will the PS5 get one this week? Also, PAX is happening!

It’s time for way too many people to get on a Skype call and debate the following. How much is Wheels is wrong? What decade will the Final Fantasy VII remake will come out? And most importantly, what did we do to deserve Metal Max Xeno and The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2?
Another month has passed, and Sam is once again behind on her posting schedule. Let’s see what games she knocked out of her backlog in the month of August.
Yakuza Kiwami 2 is now available in North America and Europe and comes with a slightly different take on the usual launch trailer. RPGamer is of the opinion that more trailers should take the form of a singalong.
For RPGamers only familiar with the newer Yakuza games, Haruka seems the only girl in Kazuma’s life. As this new trailer for Kiwami 2 shows, that wasn’t always the case.
