Cash Rules Everything Around Me - Let's Play Yakuza 0

Put your Let's Plays in here.

December 1988. Japan's economy is bustin' out, for lack of a better term. Kazuma Kiryu in Kamurocho, Tokyo and Goro Majima in Sotenbori, Osaka, are about to have their lives changed forever due to a small patch of land only a few square feet large that just so happens to sit smack in the middle of the Dojima Family's plans. Most problems are solved by punching. Punching effectiveness is increased by a raw cash injection into the bloodstream. There are so many sidequests oh god help. Why is Mahjong so complex? Why is the dancing minigame so hard? The phone club minigame makes me wonder if straight people are OK? Why does it take SO FUCKING LONG to complete Real Estate Royale and Cabaret Club Czar? Which of the Dojima Lieutenants is actually the most evil?

I picked this game up on a sale because I had heard good things from my good buddy Mike, but had no idea it would quickly become one of my favorite games of all time. Yakuza 0 may in fact be one of the most densely-packed games I've ever played in my life. And the aspects with the best rewards tend to be super long and grindy yeah you know what I'm talkin about. There is no way I can 100% this but I will do as much as I can, this is going to be the longest LP I've ever done so I do hope you'll dedicate what could very well be the next year and a half to joining me on this wild ride.

I will try and keep updates as frequent as possible, we tend to do 3 videos in one sitting, but I'm also not the only one in our group working on an LP so sometimes we do Kingdom Hearts instead which makes me drink. I'm also don't quite hate myself enough to make this a 100% LP, there's just too much in this game. I will try and do as much as I can.


Couple other housekeeping type things:
  • I'm on twitter, and every video I do gets posted on there, automagically!

  • If Mastodon is more your speed, I'm around on the fediverse too

  • I've finished college, fuck you NJIT! Because of this, I have a bit more free time and I'm starting to stream more, mostly friday nights:

The good news is everyone will be able to enjoy this LP until 2025 when it finally ends, along with the world.

If we're lucky, Gamebun will post the *already completely commentated* KH: Birth by Sleep LP we did before this one ends.

Rather hopeful of you to think we'll only have to wait five years for the apocalypse.

He's also exaggerating, I'm targeting finishing this lp by 2024

Right in time for Kiwami 0 to be released.

If you just have all of the episode titles include specific dates then you'll have no choice but to finish the LP quickly. Your LPer's pride won't allow otherwise.

The episode titles are usually based on some stupid shit we said.

Mike said WLW Wednesday out loud with his mouth at 9:15 PM last night, a tuesday, forcing me to stay up late and put the audio together and fire off the render before I went to sleep.

The only reason videos are slow to update is it is very hard to coordinate the schedules of 4 people. (3 for the time being as Maggie is taking a break)

I don't mind the pace of your updates.

The video was shorter than some of the other ones you've made recently, did you have to cut some stuff to get it done on time?

User avatar
No, it's more like, I try and edit the videos wherever there's a natural break... so we ended Majima's chapter, it just so happened to be 16 minutes this time.
The next video we did is 45 minutes long

Cool.

Can't wait for the sewer level.


I appreciate the shit out of that shitty kiryu pride jpeg you made in ep 5

I preferred using the smaller balls when bowling because they were so much easier to aim and if you get it up to near full power it'll get strikes most of the time.
