Late reply here, but I still have my copy of the Hero Quest boardgame lying at home
As for what I’ve been playing:
What an interesting, unique game!
The story (or stories, rather) is gripping, the gameplay solid, there’s always something fun to occupy your time if you feel like pausing the main story. And I thought the property management game was fun, but I had not yet had the chance to experience the cabaret hostess minigame!
The feeling when you learn to interpret the hand gestures made by your employees to serve the customers before they even ask for anything! Accompanied by the short cutscene that follows when you perform a perfect serving to a platinum hostess and Majima gives the hostess a thumbs up!
There’s just so. Much. Stuff. To. Do! And it’s almost all worth it!
On the downside, the saving system is… adequate. I don’t mind using save spots, but when you are at the tail-end of a chapter, there are often very long (sometimes unskippable) cutscenes, combined with long fights, where you have no possibility to save in between.
I was forced to turn the game off in the middle of one of these fights once because I had to go do something else IRL, and once the game crashed on me because I lingered on the pause menu too long during one of these cutscene-and-fight-heavy moments. These situations both resulted in having to replay a lot of cutscenes/fights to get back into the action.
Also, PSA: If you’re playing, make sure the game saves correctly, to avoid the game save corruption bug! Always check to see if the game actually states “Save completed” and check your inventory for item corruptions! If that happens, save-save-save again until it manages to save correctly!
You can bet on me going in Day 1 on Yakuza Kiwami! Sega needs to bring the entire series to PC!
Besides Yakuza 0, I’ve also finished The Tiny Bang Story which I received for free last year. Quaint little game, that pretty much just… ends. It was fine as a small distraction.
And I’ve also dabbled a bit in both Anno 2070 and Anno 1404, trying to decide which I like more. It’s hard to say, really…
