Original Thread: Eye of the Tiger: Let's Play Yakuza 2



What is this?
It’s the newest and juiciest LP from Game Kiwi, Yakuza 2!

Yakuza 2?
Yes! It’s the second game in the Yakuza series. We played the first game in the series in the latter half of last year (LP Archive Link). Before the last LP AP hadn’t really come into contact with the Yakuza series. He enjoyed the last one so much that we got started with this second one as soon as we could manage.

Who are you?
Game Kiwi is an internet in-joke turned into a real thing. This time it's AP joining me at the wheel. AP lives in Wales, and I live in California. We’ve played a few games for the internet at this point. We’re now on this, our 3rd LP! Exciting!

When will you release?
We plan on releasing videos on Mondays and Fridays. There also may be bonus videos from time to time (I’m thinking about doing at least a Mahjong explanation video, and maybe for other mini-games if they warrant it.).

Anything else?
Not really. I absolutely love the Yakuza series, so I’m always happy to be able to share it’s beefy, manly glory with other people. So, are you ready, baby? It’s time for this tiger to earn his stripes!

Spoiler Rules: Please don’t. This is a very story-centric game, and AP is getting it for the first time (as may be other posters). Please don’t ruin it for them. If you really really want to talk spoilers, there’s the Yakuza General Thread for that, or you can PM me for spoilery tips or things you want me to try and check out. If you absolutely have a burning need to talk spoilers, then blackbar tag them and any responses to spoiler comments, otherwise AP simply can’t read the thread. Do you want to make AP a sad sad boy?

Note: The gameplay footage will look a bit different from episodes 29 onward. Stuff happened. Sorry about that. It's not terrible, I promise!
