Just got Ishin today, but only played a few minutes. Looks great, and the gameplay isn’t jarring. Then again, I was just playing Yakuza 5 a few days ago.
Hopefully the cards can be disabled; sounds a bit immersion breaking.
Otherwise, let people enjoy the games however they want, simply put. Not worth the energy to fight. Plus, even if the games do go a different direction without Nagoshi, we've still got 0-7 plus Judgment. Plenty of classic Yakuza to enjoy forever.
Same way I coped with accepting Shenmue 3 might not happen back in 2010ish. There's two--now three--amazing, deep games to enjoy for the rest of my life. (Pardon the off topic, but I'm definitely in the camp of story being secondary to the gameplay)
I got to the chapter where the card Trooper card system is introduced, and I disabled it as soon as the tutorial was over.
Not sure. I’ve fought one story boss since the card trooper system thing was introduced, and I honestly forgot about it. I don’t think there was any magical nonsense involved.Good to know the cards can be disabled.
But do the bosses still uses the laser attacks even after you disable the cards?
I would say that's more of a current casual gamer (or a "reviewer" like Adam Sessler) than a "current fan" who would have that kind of mentality. Most new fans I tend to interact with really appreciate the Japanese aesthetic of the franchise.I'm miffed about how the current, "fandom," just doesn't appreciate that Japanese-ness: Karaoke and the characters disrobing their upper-halves (for example) are things that are intrinsically and distinctly Japanese in the context of the game. But what does the, "fandom," interpret it as? "Oh this is a game about homosexuals that like to sing and have the hots for each other."
It's not the thought itself that bothers me, it's the fact that people are absolute morons that think the point of these elements in the game mean that: you don't appreciate its actual worth and ACTUAL MEANING/SIGNIFICANCE. AND SO MANY OF THE, "FANDOM," THINK THIS WAY AND ARE SERIOUS ABOUT IT. Come on, man: I get the plot of 6; that was done with seriousness and (as we've discussed on here for years) has a deep connection with Japanese people: that is something that may be hard to grasp if you aren't Japanese. But the Karaoke? It's literally thrown in the game to be a side distraction for item gathering and completion list. That's it. It has nothing to do with any, "silly Japanese men," or anything like that and the disrobing is a Yakuza thing, showing off your tattoo to show your might and the like: that has existed for decades. It isn't about gay men showing off their bodies to one another because they get turned on.
