At long last, the middle chapters of the Yakuza series have made their way to the PC via the Yakuza Remastered Collection, rounding out the availability of this extremely popular franchise on the PC. Coming from the PS3 and PS4 era, these games don’t get the full Kiwami remake treatment, but they are recent enough games that they don’t necessarily need it. Instead, what’s on order here are modernized versions of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5 that play at a crisp 1080p (or above) and 60 frames per second, giving you the ability to experience the legacy of the Yakuza series from the comfort of your gaming PC. While the game play of the older entries can be a little rough around the edges at times, it’s a fine way to revisit Kiryu’s adventures in Kamurocho and beyond.
You might know him better as the YouTube sensation SlasherJPC, but what you probably don’t know about Justin, is that he’s a working man with a full-time job and loves his family. His other loves include videogames and all things horror. Justin’s top games of 2015 provide more surprises than you’d expect.
One of the most important things a Yakuza must know is how to beat people’s faces to a pulp. We’re talking about brutal, bloody and no-holds-barred street fighting. Kiryu and Saejima didn’t get street cred by adopting puppies and saving the trees, they got it by beating the ever-living crap out of everyone who dared stand in their way.
