Has it been ten years already? This week we're covering Chapter 2 of Yakuza: Ten Years Gone! Kiryu is out on parole after a decade in the slammer and things are very different. What if Nishiki changed his hairstyle? Wow! And there's a BIG building now? Neat! This week, we're talking about Nishiki's haters, Majima (and how he's everywhere), and how Kiryu probably hasn't heard about 9/11 yet. Rest in peace, Tamura-san of SPA! Magazine. You will be missed.
What the fuck is up, listeners? Yazuka 0 is fucking over, so it's time to start our motherfuckin' Yakuza/Yakuza Kiwami playthrough, bitches! Sorry about the excessive profanity, we're just trying to appeal to Western audiences. We're kicking things off with Chapter 1 of Yakuza 1 - October 1st, 1995: Fate of the Kinslayer. This week, we're talking about Mr. Libido's son, Kiryu's tattoo reminders, and how Darryl Kurrlyo is doing his best. CIRCUS MUSIC INTENSIFIES
One game down, many more to go! We're playing the exciting and emotional finale of Yakuza 0: Black and White and folks? It's very good! This week, we're talking about Majima going full Psycho-Mantis, Dojima's Double Boss Fight Room, and being thrown up the stairs. On the side, Kiryu defeats the world's shittiest landlord and inadvertently invents a new style of fighting AND penal labor. See you next week in Yakuza Kiwami, Kiryu-chan!

It's the final stretch! It's the beginning of our last Majima section before the finale, with Chapter 15: Scattered Lights. Majima is a bit down in the dumps today, but that doesn't mean he's going to skip breakfast! This week we're talking about Top 10 Anime Betrayals, Yakuza Mushroom Kingdom AUs, and Kiryu's dubious cooking. On the side...wait what? I'm getting a text that says that the boys have already done the best substories, so it's all Cabaret Club and Real Estate now. Waaaa~!
Take off your shirt in a single swoop! Kiryu is back in Kamurocho and he's madder than ever! This week, we're talking about Funnie Frankensteins, Offscreen Plot Synopses, and Brotherly Bonding. On the side, Kiryu gets some foreshadowing and writes some postcards! KUZE!!!!!!!!!!
Lock up your bikes and charge your crystals. Jordan and Argyle are back with a Double Big Boy Two Chapter Serving of Yakuza 0; Chapter 12: Den of Desires and Chapter 13: Crime and Punishment. This week, we're talking about a tasty new summertime treat, Masaru Sera's confusing Final Test, and Non-Lethal Helicopter Crashes. Plus, we finally get to reveal which Yakuza 0 character is cancelled! On the side, Majima gets coaxed into a toilet-related snafu and can't find the vinegar. Happy 52nd Birthday Kazuma Kiryu!

Bring on the fights! After being away for three weeks, our journey through Yakuza 0 brings us back to Sotenbori once again for Chapter 11: A Murky Riverbed. Goro Majima is still mourning the loss of the recently skeletonized Wen Hai Lee. This week, we're talking about Yakuza Chalice Dungeons, Joker knock-offs, and major leakage. On the side: why did Suda cross Iwao Bridge? To get to the other side. Also: ACAB (All Cops are Billiken)
Pocket Circuit is over! We're parking our tiny cars and getting back to business with Chapter 10 of Yakuza 0: A Man's Worth joined by Dan Silva of Pod of Greed/Sonic Shuffle! This week, we're talking about cool tattoos, a brand new system of currency, and hundred-man spanking machines. On the side, Kiryu tries raw water, points out a contradiction, and loses an unwinnable dance battle. Oh and uhh also Japanese Catfight Club I guess. It's a matter of protocol!

Lock up your Pockets and feel the Circuit! Kiryu doesn't want to advance the plot this week so instead he's going to be spending his time racing tiny cars with (mostly) children. That's right, it's the Pocket Circuit episode! This week, we're talking about the pretty terrible Pocket Circuit mini-game. On the side, Kiryu makes some phone calls and bowls a turkey! Just a little something for the fellas...
