Review in Progress: Project X Zone 2

Yakuza: Kiwami continues to look great

Every time I see footage for Yakuza: Kiwami, I just want to replay the first game again. It's a shame that we never got the PS3 or Wii U HD remakes, but I'd settle for a worldwide release of this one, as it seems like the best ve...

Yakuza Ishin came to PS3 & PS4 to do right by fans, just not western ones
