Yakuza 3 reviewed by Yakuza

A game journalist managed to get 3 high-ranking Yakuza to sit and play through Yakuza 3, giving their impressions along the way. A very interesting read.

This is an amazing read. Never knew the Yakuza employed Nigerians to hustle people into shady places.

One of the Yakuza guys posted this:

Can you smoke in the game? I forget. That should be a power-up.

That would be epic.

Two of the three are missing their pinkies — in the old days, when a yakuza or his subordinates screwed up, they chopped off pinkies as an act of atonement — and this seems to affect their gameplay.
