Microsoft boasted that Xbox Series X was the most powerful console ever, especially as a point of contrast against its chief competition, Sony's PlayStation 5. With both consoles out in the wild, though, testing has shown PS5 periodically running ahead of Xbox Series X performance, and Microsoft has now responded.

"We are aware of performance issues in a handful of optimized titles on Xbox Series X|S and are actively working with our partners to identify and resolve the issues to ensure an optimal experience," a Microsoft spokesperson told The Verge. "As we begin a new console generation, our partners are just now scratching the surface of what next-gen consoles can do and minor bug fixes are expected as they learn how to take full advantage of our new platform. We are eager to continue working with developers to further explore the capability of Xbox Series X|S in the future."

Beast. But hold on, aren't you overwhelmingly against console emulation? Or is when it's only done on a PC by a PC gamer? 😛
PCSX2 can be run on any 5 to 10 year old computer :p Not really a beast as much as people taking advantage of MS allowing developer-level access to people.

Emulation reqiures you to have original system bios and games which can be dumped to your pc if you own the said system for it to work

‘That’s a f**king confusing name. What the f**k’s going on with Microsoft? They’re losing it, man. What the f**k is going on? Like Series S, X, Mex, Next. I mean, who knows this? Come on. Madness. Call it the Microsoft Box and that’s it. I don’t know. It’s a total f**king mess. Trust me, even them, they’re confused in their offices. What is this X, S… I don’t know, what the f**k.’

    That's good to know. Not really a fan of subtitles.

    and the game has a surprisingly solid english localization with accurate lip sync. I played it with the english VA. Felt dirty playing Yakuza in English at first but got used to it real quick.

  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    Well, I guess I'll get it then. Once the PS5 update is out, that is. Hopefully there's a sale around that time

    Ichiban is one of the best new protagonist in games this year, such a fun dude.

    I think it was the Giantbomb GOTY debate or maybe the Easy Allies one. They were talking about how the turn-based combat in LAD lacks depth, and is the weakest part of the game.
    The GB crew all love it, it was their 2nd best game of the year after Hades. The only combat related issues they highlighted was that sometimes characters can get stuck on scenery cause the environments are still the same brawler combat based, not designed around turn based. Don't follow easy allies so not sure what they said about the game.

  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    But yeah, I'd probably play it for the worldbuilding, lore, characters

    tl;dr, get it. 100% chandoo satisfaction guaranteed.

    and not tied to the baggage of 7 previous Yakuza games makes it a great entry for newcomers or people who haven't played every single game in the franchise

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    I will give it my 100% recommendation. It is as charming, if not more so, than Judgment in terms of lore, world building and especially characters.

    @Chandoo I'd like to get Yakuza: LAD at some point (preferably when the PS5 patch arrives), but everyone says the combat is kinda bad. What are your thoughts on this? I enjoyed Judgment's combat, but not sure about the switch to turn-based.
    I don't know why anyone would say it's "bad". It's a traditional JRPG, so if someone likes any form of turn based JRPGs, this will fit well with them.

    dont think so. Seems to be the same input duplicated on both screens... unless you specifically switch to one as the active one

    pre loaded but won't play yet, DF said they contacted the devs about frame pacing and the devs said they're working on it for the next patch

  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    Yeah, most likely. The way the entire scene changes in an instant in single-screen mode is pretty cool. Have you downloaded it?

    Yeah, seems to be the case. Though, I'm curious to know how we're actually controlling both characters simultaneously lol

    to be fair one window in MGS 4 was running a scripted Vamp/Raiden fight. Medium seems to have active game play with RT and individual full screen effects in both of its windows, so its a lot more ambitious :p
