Never played the other yakuza games but having it also finished (which was great btw)
I liked Majimas default look and character in 0 as opposed to the change in the ending and the sequels where he is the "Mad Dog" but who knows maybe it will grow on me.

ps. I'm kinda sad that Majima and Kiryuu never mad until the very end, looked like they could be pals.

If it's not too much to ask, can someone who has beaten the game enter the cutscene gallery and take a high-res screenshot for me?
I just want a crisper shot of this character, who appears in the cutscene where the Omi Alliance come to kill Sagawa.

Just picked this up last night and already learned about the ambient lighting issues! Seems like a huge bummer. I hope they aren't done releasing patches already.

I'm not that far into this game yet because of issues I still have. At first I had the stuttering issue which I could fix with putting Yakuza on high priority but now I have the random 2 to sometimes 10 seconds freezing which is really annoying and still after almost 2 months not fixed. Supposedly it is because of the CPU usages increasing for a short period of time and I did find a method to fix it but it doesn't work for me (Using BES to cap the max CPU usage amount). Anyone else also have this issue?

Have you tried now? The first patch to this game fixed most of the unable-to-launch issues.
No one seems to have any suggestions for the "Failed to initialize GS settings" Startup problem except reinstalling the VC runtimes, which seems to work for some people, but not all

They didn't seem to fix it for anyone with the patches, either

I started playing this on PC not too long ago and it runs amazingly (locked 144fps) but I've noticed that some textures are really low quality for some reason and look worse than the PS4 version's textures.

Here's a shot I pulled from Youtube of the PS4 version.


And here's my screenshot of the PC version.


The text on the sign behind the dominatrix is much lower quality on PC. I have the game running on the highest settings so I'm not sure what else to do.

It's fucking absurd that it's been 2 months, and they still haven't fixed the cutscene lighting. Very smart of them to fuck with customer goodwill while trying to build an audience on a new platform.

the radio silence from the devs on this and other well documented issues is really dissapointing and i dont think i’ll be buying anymore yakuza games on pc because of it

I started playing this morning and I'm getting random game freezes for up to 10 seconds. The audio continues while the graphics and controls freeze up. There isn't any rhyme or reason to the freezes. They can happen during combat, a cutscene or just walking around. Has anyone else run into this? I'm running on an i5-2500K with 8 GB RAM, GTX 980 and Windows 7. It's really frustrating as the game runs smooth at 1440p otherwise.

EDIT: The game is installed on an SSD.

Yeah, it's another one of the unresolved bugs in this port. I've only experienced when I go down a certain street in Kamurocho so far, but it's definitely a common one folks have run into.

I can't help but think the lack of patches/communication is because the team was moved over to porting Kiwami now. I really hope they use that experience to go back and fix the bugs in 0's port once Kiwami PC is out the door but it's not looking good right now.

Just hit Chapter 9. I feel every time I want to take a break from the main story to do more side quests (almost all of them I've done so far have been well written), the main story either ramps up so much I really want to see what happens next and/or there's some plot urgency that comes up where it doesn't make sense to do a side quest. Both the main story and side quests are just so good in this game that I feel compelled to experience it all. If the main story keeps ramping up I may just end up finishing that first and coming back for the rest of the side quests later (which I definitely will have to finish as well). Game really is something special.

I Played for an hour or more, loved. My experience with the series includes only Yakuza 3 and 4 (I didn't finish).
The game really show what it is in the first hour. You fight, you get a lot of talks and cutscenes. Suddenly a complete stranger walks and tell you a lesson about life and how to upgrade your skills,and then you sing at a Karaoke and later is framed in a homicide.

It is Yakuza all over my face.gif

Question: I'm in chapter 2, I did probably 10 substories, but I want to play the main, if I go to the next chapter do I lose the substories from 2 ?
As far as I know, you can do all sub-stories at any time for the most part. There's a very specific point near the end of the game, where the game will tell you that you will no longer be able to complete substories if you continue.

You can't permanently miss out on any substories, feel free to move through the main story at whatever pace you'd like. There are a few missable achievements throughout the game if you care about that though.

Thanks you both
I really loved all subs, but the number is overhelming, god

Any word on if/when the rest of the series is coming out on Steam? Are the Steam releases of these games likely to run/look so much better that it might be worth waiting for them? Asking as a PS4 Pro owner and a Nvidia 1080 Ti GPU owner.

Nothing has been officially said as far as I know. I've refused to play my copy of Yakuza 6 hoping that Y6 and Kiwami 2 will come to PC.

Just did the cult substory which was fantastic in how funny it was. I've been getting tempted to mainline the story of this game, if only because I have seemingly a million other games in my backlog from this year alone that I want to start playing at some point. Also the main story is really interesting and I want to see where it goes. But so many of these substories are great that it feels almost criminal to skip them. Guess I'll keep chipping away at it and finish the game up one of these years lol. Pretty impressed with how many substories they managed to fit in.

0's substories in particular are of an especially high quality, so if there's one game you should do a lot of the side content in, it's this one.

Yeah did a couple more yesterday and they are fantastic. I'm really glad the PC version came out this year so I have an excuse to put this on my top 10 list.

Been playing Y0 on and off since the PC version came out in August and finally finished it tonight. Man what a great game. Really enjoyed the main story, but I think my favorite part was the substories. A lot of them are really funny, and serve as a great balance with the (mostly) serious main story. Combat was also good fun, though I did find myself having much more fun with Majima's different fighting styles than Kiryu's (Breaker is just too good).

Also amazes me just how many mini-games and side activities they crammed into the game as well. If I really wanted to, I probably could have sunk another 20-30 hours into more Cabaret Club and Real Estate Royale.

Definitely will be checking out Kiwami at some point since I already have it on PS4, though probably will take a little break from the series to avoid burning out on it. Looking forward to playing the rest of the series, though it's probably going to take a good long while to catch up to 6.

What are your complete specs if you don't mind me asking? I bought a new PC last December. I'm wondering if it might run Yakuza 0 without the freezing.
4670K
8GB
RX 570 4GB

I think this bug is indifferent to whatever specs you have. It just randomly freezes for a few seconds a couple of times per hour or so. It's weird.

Heads up, another beta patch was just released:
https://steamcommunity.com/app/638970/discussions/0/1776010325134009474/

• Fixed an issue related to shaders and shadow rendering affecting lighting/skin tone (most noticeable during cut scene at the end of chapter 6)
• Fixed an issue where certain particle effects were not being displayed (most noticeable when using certain weapons like the cannon)
• Improved ultrawide display support
• Added FOV slider in advanced graphics menu
• Added border artwork displayed during areas with locked aspect ratio when played in non-16:9 display modes
• Added Background audio slider in audio menu
• Added UI toggle in settings menu
• Added target monitor output selection option for multi monitor setups in advanced graphics menu
• Added support for QWERTZ and AZERTY keyboard layouts
• Fixed an issue where disconnecting a controller during conversation could cause a soft lock
• Fixed an issue where mouse cursor would be confined within application window while in menus
• Fixed an issue which could cause a crash when playing the fishing mini game
• Fixed an issue where the game could crash if the installation folder path includes a dot
• Improved behaviour of camera control when using a mouse to use raw mouse input
• Improved mouse scroll wheel behaviour
• Improved Alt+Tab behaviour


Sounds like a pretty big patch, and hopefully it really does the trick to fix the FMV skin/shadowing issues. Also hopefully it'll mean Kiwami won't have as many issues when it launches soon.

An user in the community hub is also reporting that the beta patch removed Denuvo:

Yeah, but I was waiting for more confirmation before pointing that out. It'd be great if true. I think Kiwami isn't going to have Denuvo in it at all from day 1 (hopefully) so it'd make sense for it to be removed from 0 as well.
