'Yakuza 3' (PS3) Coming to North America/Europe After All?

by Rainier on Sept. 20, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under News

Yakuza 3 takes a departure from the first two games by moving from the gritty cityscape of Tokyo, to Okinawa, where Kiryu runs a center for orphaned children. The orphanage is on land that is owned by a mob boss who is under pressure from the government to sell the land, making life once again tough for Kiryu. While earlier this week SEGA hinted that it might be bringing Yakuza 3 over to the west after all, sources have indicated that the game is being localized for Europe/North America as we speak. While SEGA is expected to announce Yakuza 4 at the Tokyo Game Show, we can only hope it will also shed some light on the previous title's faith.

Is His Junk Out? Now It's a Party!

Another lazy day was had yesterday. After a few updates and submitting a list of Web site tweaks to Ricky, our site dev, the rest of our time was spent on groceries, finishing up "Psych" and "Duplicity," and watching a few episodes of "Leverage." I also decided to give RE5 a break to quickly check out Red Faction: Guerrilla (PC) and Halo 3: ODST. RFG is fun and looks good, but it sure starts chugging at certain intervals in the game, so I guess running it at max settings isn't going to work. Halo 3: ODST is definitely a departure from the old Halo titles, and I think I've died more in the few hours I've played than I did in all three previous games combined, so at the very least, it's more challenging.

Tomorrow we're going to see "Gamer" and "Whiteout." We haven't been to the movies in a while, so we decided to double up.

In case you were wondering about all the movie talk, I've mentioned before that we're big movie fans, and if we weren't already running a video game site, we'd probably have a movie-related site.
