Episode 42: Haruka's Kidnap Collage

Things are heating up as we square up for a showdown for the ages in Chapter 13 of Yakuza 2: Settling Accounts. Wait? Is that really what this one is called? This week, we learn the difficult, convoluted truth about Sayama's parentage and Kiryu tries to make life-altering decisions for his daughter without asking her first, but it's fine. Yeah...it's fine.

Episode 40: A Very Jingweon Christmas

Sayama makes a huge leap in logic that leads us into an interesting (not really) diverging set of paths between the original game and the remake. Kiryu bumps into an eternally old friend. Neither of us understand shogi and we refuse to learn.

Could someone please tell me where the K-Mart is? I've walked down every street and climbed every tower in Osaka looking for it I'm begging you.

Episode 39: ISHIN AND KENZAN CONFIRMED 2022!!!

Aw fuck do we really have to deal with the Florist's failson again? Fine. We also get some out of character romance between Kiryu and Sayama (as opposed to the in-character romance between Kiryu and Majima), and some interesting tattoo lore. And yes, we talk about Lost Judgment.

Episode 38: Snakeskin High Viz

This week on Kamurocho Radio, we're talking about Chapter 9 of Yakuza 2: the Omi Invasion, and guess what? The Omi? They invade! This chapter rules and we loved to play through it! We also chat about Kiryu's ice cream preferences, Majima's personal protective equipment, and the Yakuza series' tenuous grasp on world events. Oh and swords!

Oh no, Date is funny sus! To get him out of this jam, Kiryu pays a visit to our sleazeball pal the Florist, then runs into another iconic Yakuza 1 character that you definitely remember before Kiryu says exactly who he is. Somebody please help Kiryu, he doesn't understand computers and is gonna get himself hurt one of these days.

Episode 36: Pavlovian Baka Mitai

Fuck Kawara!!! We're talking about the Yakuza 2 Chapter 7: A Foreign Threat, which we're pretty sure was written by Tucker Carlson. We learn how Kawara got his nickname and it sucks and we meet a new, xenophobic player in the world Kamurocho-based criminal organizations. it's rough...so we also just talk about a bunch of substories! We also talk about Kiryu's streaming career and why you should support small Kamurocho businesses. Don't forget to keep your fists, true!

Episode 35: Gee Kiryu! How come your mom lets you have two Kazukis?

Yakuza 2 gives us a little peek of the weirdness and xenophobia before it blasts us with both barrels. We have a new least favorite cop character, which is quite the feat considering there's now three of them all vying for screentime. Jordan likes the doppelganger plot so much he decides to see another one on the side, and I take no pleasure in saying this but Argyle encounters what can only be described as mommy milkers.

This week, we're talking about the Yakuza Hard Rock Cafe, horny Morrowind mods, and Sayama snafus. Activate extreme heat mode! Argyle | Jordan
