Yakuza: Like a Dragon proves big franchises shouldn’t be afraid of taking big risks

Podtoid 468

With so many popular video game franchises staying true to course, it’s refreshing to see when a publisher lets a developer go wild with their ideas. The Yakuza series is long known for its brawler gameplay, but in Like a Dragon, it shifts things up with an RPG formula that really works well for the series.

That’s just one of the topics on this episode of Podtoid. Chris, CJ, Dan and Occams gather around the proverbial fire to talk Yakuza, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, the Game Award nominations, and IOI’s 007 game. All that, plus a comedy of errors for one street racer, on Podtoid Episode 468.
