    But yeah, I'd probably play it for the worldbuilding, lore, characters

    I think it was the Giantbomb GOTY debate or maybe the Easy Allies one. They were talking about how the turn-based combat in LAD lacks depth, and is the weakest part of the game.

    tl;dr, get it. 100% chandoo satisfaction guaranteed.

    and not tied to the baggage of 7 previous Yakuza games makes it a great entry for newcomers or people who haven't played every single game in the franchise

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    I will give it my 100% recommendation. It is as charming, if not more so, than Judgment in terms of lore, world building and especially characters.

    @Chandoo I'd like to get Yakuza: LAD at some point (preferably when the PS5 patch arrives), but everyone says the combat is kinda bad. What are your thoughts on this? I enjoyed Judgment's combat, but not sure about the switch to turn-based.
    I don't know why anyone would say it's "bad". It's a traditional JRPG, so if someone likes any form of turn based JRPGs, this will fit well with them.

    probably feels like playing that Brothers game
    dont think so. Seems to be the same input duplicated on both screens... unless you specifically switch to one as the active one

    pre loaded but won't play yet, DF said they contacted the devs about frame pacing and the devs said they're working on it for the next patch

  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    Yeah, most likely. The way the entire scene changes in an instant in single-screen mode is pretty cool. Have you downloaded it?

    Yeah, seems to be the case. Though, I'm curious to know how we're actually controlling both characters simultaneously lol

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    to be fair one window in MGS 4 was running a scripted Vamp/Raiden fight. Medium seems to have active game play with RT and individual full screen effects in both of its windows, so its a lot more ambitious :p

    Man, didn't MGS4 render in dual cam during the Vamp boss fight? lol
    yeah, I honestly don't remember how it performed in that particular scene

    Yup, and plus you have warranty too. I wasn't as lucky, unfortunately. Had to pay extra for shipping, and there's no local warranty either.
