You know what to do, Yakuza fans. Get that Japanese PSN login fired up for next week, as the first Yakuza 5 demo will launch then. Gematsu says that you'll play as Kazuma Kiryu in some of the game's earlier stages in Nagasugai, Fukuoka. 

New screenshots show bear hunting in the snow. I hope that's not the demo, as that looks pretty boring. Plus, shooting bears is mean. And unless you speak Japanese, I also hope the demo is not the dialogue-heavy 'cabbie' one I played at Tokyo Game Show a few months back. Hopefully it's just good-time kicking and city running. 

Get ready. Tuesday, November 27 is when the demo drops.

TGS: Kickin' it with Kazuma the cabbie in Yakuza 5

There's no questioning that Yakuza series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu is a badass of the highest order, but his first appearance in a Tokyo Game Show demo of upcoming PS3 game Yakuza 5 has him in a cab driver's uniform. Yep, the Dragon of Dojima is a taxi driver.  My first thought: Oh no they didn't!more

Nendoroid Solid Snake comes with a low-poly head

I've never gotten into Nendoroid, but after seeing that Wind Waker Link figure and now this Solid Snake one, all I can say is "send help" -- it's happening sooner than later. The key features here, in my book, are the alterna...more

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos trailer full of tits, upskirts, and murder

Holy crap, that song it goes into around the 45-second mark is so damn bad. Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is hitting PS4 in Japan this October, where it can hopefully help shift some units, as the PS4 library isn't tickling the country's collective fancy. Looks I lot better than the Onechanbara I played on Wii. more
