Just get Yakuza. Yakuza 0 is one of the best in the series. That price alone is worth that 1 game. Don't overthink it.

Public Service Announcement: today is the last day to cancel or pause the Humble Monthly.

 

I actually remembered this time.

 

Yakuza 0 is the only reveal that looks interesting to me and it looks too similar to sleepy dogs which I've never come close to finishing. Also, it retails for $19.99 -- not exactly an amazing discount if the rest of the bundle is garbage.

Yakuza is nothing like Sleeping Dogs. SD is a much better game IMO, but if you didn't like SD that much maybe you'll like this better?

It's not entirely like Sleeping Dogs.

 

Sleeping Dogs is more like GTA mixed with Batman: Arkham style fighting. In Sleeping Dogs, you're going to need to drive around to get around (like in GTA) and can actually shoot guns at times in combat (though, not as much as you'd do in GTA). Yakuza 0 doesn't really deal w/ gunplay much at all from your characters, TBH. Most of the time, you're brawling and just walking/running around to get around the game-world.

 

Combat in Yakuza 0 is quite a bit different than Batman: Arkham games, as it doesn't feel like it's got a heavy emphasis built off of counters. Most of the time, it's combat is very much on the offense. You can learn and do counter moves, but....I'm not using them much TBH. Whereas in Batman: Arkham, you'll counter a lot; it's part of the game's system big time. Also, Yakuza's camera isn't always friendly (it can be stuck in certain places and corners) and both the camera & combat can be a bit wonky - but, there are complexities to the combat system; especially when you learn different styles and can switch them on-the-fly and mix 'em up them up during combat.

 

Also, in Yakuza 0, there are side quests that could rival many games' main quest-line stuff here. This isn't the UbiSoft type of side-questing of "Kill X guys", "conquer X areas", and other MMO-style padding for grinding. These side-quests often have their own characters, short-stories, motivations, and things of that sort. Also, unlike the main story - many of the quests can be weird, off-the-wall, wacky, funny, hilarious, strange, twisted, serious...and/or who knows what else you'll get - which is a lot of the charm and greatness on the side stuff.

 

Yakuza 0 also will really take its time w/ story on especially the main stuff, taking even 15-30 minutes at times just for a cut-scene...just to flesh out the story, characters, and whatnot - which I think it does an excellent job at this stuff (the translation to English & Japanese audio is excellent). Main stuff's mostly serious, while who knows what you'll get in the side stuff.

 

Also, that's not even getting into the mini-games you can get into, too - of playing pool, doing karaoke, playing darts, playing poker, playing roulette, and other stuff...which also feel like they could've been their own games even on their own. These mini-games can be time-sinks themselves.

Sleeping Dogs is a gritty, Hong-Kong hard-boiled style crime-noir GTA clone with more emphasis on beat-em-up and traveling by foot. Yakuza is a weird Japanese style game with Japanese weirdness and sense of humor, character development, lots of minigames and side quests, ridiculous combat, and pizza delivery. The only thing they have in common is the broad strokes umbrella genre they are in, and that they have Asian people in them. Other than that last part you could have named pretty much any other title in the genre (GTA, Mafia III, Lego City Undercover) and you'd get a more accurate comparison to Sleeping Dogs.

Sleeping Dogs has a good amount of character development.  Yakuza has way too much.  Like get the Fuck on already I want to beat someone up and do some dumb mini game.

I found Yakuza story to be pretty good. I feel Yakuza 1 and 2 had a well written story, but I believe they were both written by the same novelist. I didn't enjoy Yakuza 0's story as much mainly cause I knew exactly the events of 1...so this was eventually going to lead into it. I loved the Goro Majima stuff though. The Kiryu part was good too, but the other part did some good fleshing out. Still a good story overall for 0. To this day I still haven't played Yakuza 2....will play the remake. 3 had the watch the story thing though....but yeah I really need to play the game.

Huh, I didn’t know weeaboo mean “man of good taste” these days, I’ve still been using it to refer to the PS Vita deals thread posters.

So there's a Numenera bundle, eh? Does anyone even play that game? I've never actually heard of people participating in Numenera.

I know of it but in (mumble) years, I've never seen anyone actually playing it.  My impression is that it's definitely a "bring your own group" type of game.  But I guess enough people play it overall to keep making the books.

Thanks for filling in the blanks for me on Yakuza 0, it sounds like I made a good choice to skip as it's just not my thing, apparently.

I loved Sleeping Dogs. That game was awesome. Not only that about the actual game itself...but the voice-acting, character stuff and story was also really good in that game.

 

Yakuza 0 is also great, from what I've played so far. Not only is the main quest & the story/character stuff excellent so far - but with so much variety in the side-quests and mini-games, this is just really hard to put down b/c it doesn't feel like it has that UbiSoft grinding & repetition.

 

I don't know how anyone can go wrong with either title, TBH.

 

EDIT:

I wont dis either cause I wish we got a Sleeping Dogs 2. Sleeping Dogs was excellent and a really fun game. The side activities were barely there, but otherwise it was an excellent game. I may replay it someday. I'm the biggest Yakuza fanboy, so I don't have much to say, but I find the characters, stories, side-missions and all to be very fun and the only one i struggled with (still haven't played 5 or 6 yet) was 3 cause it had a very slow story and the cut missions sucked. I really hope they decide to release the PS4 remasters in NA (they likely will).

It's entirely possible that someone wanted Deponia but doesn't regularly check a useless circlejerk thread on a dead forum enough to have gotten in perfectly under the deadline. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The important thing is that you kept your sense of humor.

Went ahead and grabbed the $1 tier of the Double Fine bundle that included 140, Mountain, and THOTH.  It ends in less than 7 hours.

[All on PS4]

 

$1

Grim Fandango Remastered

The Bard's Tale: Remastered and Resnarked

Layers of Fear

Wasteland 2: Director's Cut - Standard Edition

The Talos Principle

Broken Age

Note: I'm assuming that if I have a game via PS Plus (like Grim Fandango Remastered), I can't actually use this to "buy" a copy of it. I know that's how it used to work at least.

That's how it just worked for me on Grim Fandango and Broken Age, which was a bummer.

But I wanted Bard's Tale, Wasteland 2, and Talos, and didn't have any of those from prior purchase or PS+, so I'm happy.

Anyone know if each game has it's own key?  I think the last time they did a Playstation bundle, each tier had it's own key instead of each game.

Is the $15 tier also one key for both games?  Assuming it is since the others all are.
