Cohh Carnage is a pretty big live streamer on Twitch.
He started playing Yakuza 0 because of his chat and then played all of them because he liked them so much.
And he is a good dude in general. Hes a very chill guy.
But i think its kinda bs how Sega is pushing this campaign now,
like all of a sudden its like all of the content creators who only started with Yakuza like 4-5 years ago
are super fans and they were always rooting for the studio and they have the biggest Yakuza community
and its so cool how we fought to get the Ishin Remake ...
I already said this a couple of pages ago but this is exactly what i meant with
forced calculated promotion. Stuff like this doesnt get created to make a game good or better,
it only gets created for the promotion campaign. The whole reason why this exists, is to post news about it on Twitter.
And all of this "this is for the community" is just a slimy distraction.
Lets push it to the next level in Yakuza 8 and suddenly western Twitch streamers or Youtubers
are in the game as guests in side missions or whatever ...
This leaves a bad taste in my mouth
If you ask me, a content creator who happens to be a fan of like a overseas game or movie or whatever,
should be rooting for the project because its from overseas and they should promote / play / watch it
as a overseas experience. Because its something different.
Thats support enough. Thats supporting a foreign project because its a foreign project.
But it kind of turns everything upside down if we start to put these people into the actual projects.
I have NEVER used Twitch in my life so farCohh Carnage is a pretty big live streamer on Twitch.
Aside from the additions like whatever the card thing is, isn’t the gameplay basically unchanged from the original release?
Brilliant title, was an, "All-Star," game of sorts for the series, taking a bit from the Bakumatsu period and injecting a bit of their own plot into it. It worked well and the end-result was a fantastic game from top to bottom.
They have remade it, modified it to be more PC in today's world and have added a bunch of stupid shit that the, "fandom," loves, like adding in a bunch of random Twitch streamers (and Kenny Omega) as, "cards," in a rather stupid-looking (don't know how it is in practice) side battle system that is optional to even use.
Nagosh and Yokoyama were keeping the series super-Japanese and within that universe: this being the first were they are not at the helm, they've gone full-out, "let's cater to the Western fans that are ruining the series and its reputation, with their idiotic, sophomoric memes and who think 0 is the greatest game ever."
As a RGG lifer, it is sad to see... but money is king and if it makes them more money to cater to these new fans, they'll do it.
