    I didn't think MK's story was pushing some kind of 'girl power' thing.  I watched MK9 and MK10 story modes before I played MK11 and this is honestly just the natural continuation.  I liked story mode quite a lot actually.

    I completed Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise PS4 campaign yesterday.
    It was roughly 18.5 hours with a handful of substories.
    I am a relatively newbie to FOTNS and Yakuza, but since I liked Yakuza 0/Kiwami1/2 , I was excited to try it. I have seen the 152 episode 1984  FOTNS anime series,but no other media/games.

    Pros:
     
    The graphics and character designs are faithful to the anime/manga designs from what I could tell. The original characters like Xsana/Jagre/Lyra/Targa/KyoOh fit in well.
     
    The music is decent especially the Receive You song.
     
    There is a lot of  fun side content and mini games like Yakuza. I liked the baseball games, dr rhythm, and Bartending games. The substories are 50/50. (I think Yakuza does them better)
     
    The final battle and the big twist in the last chapter
     
    The Jagi/Devil rebirth/ boss battles
     
    The Yakuza Jpn voice actors being used for certain characters was very fitting.
    especially the following:
    Kiryuuuu-chan as Kenshiro
    Majima as Jagi
    Ryuji Goda as Raoh
    I only listened briefly to English actors during one or two gameplay youtube vids, but the Kenshiro actor was decent.
     

    Cons:  
    About 1/3 of the story stuff feels unnecessary padding to get it to a Yakuza length campaign.   I know there is the usual "get dog food, then give to this person" stuff.But some of it was a bit much.
    Ex: Rei and Ken are investigating Jagi
    Rei: Lets talk to the bartender. (After) Go take a nap and then talk to Jagre. Ok Take another nap and then talk to Xsana.  Is Rei hypothyroid?  Fist of the North Slumber lol
     
    The progression seems to be artificially held back compared to Yakuza. Usually in Yakuza, every few chapters, I can upgrade a few "areas" and I understand that not everything can be maxed out in 1 playthrough of the campaign especially with minimal progress in substories/minigames.  However, FOTNS seems to be stingy with unlocking and requirements. 

    While this is an original story, I feel some characters have very little impact especially Shin, Toki, and Rei. Shin being the intro/tutorial boss seems a bit minimal considering he was the guy who gave Kenshiro the seven scars. Why not Daboog err Heart?

    My biggest problem is the fighting . Its not bad, but the heat actions seem to get boring after seeing only 8-9 being done. The burst mode in this doesnt seem as "helpful" as Kiryu climax Heat or aura based heat moves.  Like Kiwami 1, you seem to get knocked down frequently and it takes a while to get back up. The variety in heat movies is arguably my favorite part of Yakuza games. Doing them barehanded, doing them with weapons, doing them against various settings (against a car, a wall, with the help of a citizen etc)  Kenshiro being all powerful means he doesnt really need a potted plant or bicycle to own guys, but it makes Yakuza funny and fun.
    I also wish there were more crowd control moves available.
     
    Overall:  It's just ok.   7/10.

    @Zero X-2 has great gameplay. Everything else about it is trash. I mean Yuna literally dos a Pop Concert performance at the beginning.
     
    Side note: For those wondering the graphics/frame rate comparison between Switch/PS4 MK11. Here you go.

    @Deadly_Raver Oh I've been following this closely. Seems we've been watching similar sources. These people are monsters. That Umbrella Guy has people going after his daughter and calling Child Protective Services due to his coverage of the Vic situation.

    @Angel and @Darc_Requiem

    It's way worse than you may think.  I've been watching Nick Rekieta of Rekieta Law on YouTube who has been following it from the start and giving us a lawyer's view into the current battle between Vic and the KicVic crowd.  From the looks of things, He (Vic) May have a pretty airtight case and thanks to the power of the internet, go fund me, and a lot of people who are sick and tired of the BS from SJW types, he also has a damn good lawyer in the form of one Ty Beard.  Some of the updates have been BAD for the KickVic crowd.  In particular, something called Tortious interference has come up and it looks like Vic has a VERY strong case there.   TL;DR Here.  https://www.legalmatch.com/law-library/article/interference-with-business-relations.html
     
    If that isn't enough, it seems that Toei entertainment, the people responsible for the Dragonball series, are starting to take notice of what's happening here in America. Right now the names Darc_requiem mentioned are the ones on the lawsuit, but we have reason to believe that it's the first lawsuit and not the ONLY one.  I'm taking bets on who will be in the next round...................*COUGH*Marzgurl, ANN, Schemmel and Sabat............*COUGH*  It's funny.  Neither Piccolo nor Gohan have arrived to help save the Z fighters this time.  You may have to get used to new voice actors and actresses in the near future.  The current ones may not survive the wrath of Broly.

    @Angel And Monical Rial, Jamie Marchi, and Ron Toye. It looks like the author of the terrible iO9 article may have been added based on a Tweet from Vic's lawyer. I hope all those clowns gets what is coming to him. You shouldn't be able to destroy someone without evidence. This Twitter Kangaroo Court shit has to stop.

    The Ongoing Slow-motion Hindenburg Crash that is Anthem continues...
    ...so the "Featured" store updated again, and OH HOW SURPRISING, once again there's content they've already posted before.  This is a non-stop comedy show, folks.  There's only 2 people on my friend-list (out of the group that played) that still play it... one guy actually hit "Legendary" status with his Storm now.  Really, I've never seen anything quite like this in the industry before... a game that's supposedly in the "looter shooter" genre...where loot is important.....and it hardly has any loot.  How does one also introduce a new special loot chest ("Elysian") that has literally NOTHING desirable in it?  
     
    For the uninitiated---Imagine if Diablo 3, Path of Exile or whatever other loot-centric games had a new special mode you could run with this big golden treasure box at the end....but the only thing in there are white items and small amounts of gold (gold quickly becomes irrelevant in D3; my character on XB1 currently has 2.6 billion or so)...and thus...NOBODY cares about that damn chest as a result. 😆 I still have 1 Elysian key from weeks ago now...because I don't care to ever use it.  There is no incentive to care about that chest because it literally has nothing that is of any value.  People would have liked customization pieces (armor packs) to be in there but they (probably the suits in charge) chose to NOT put those in there.
     
    It's like an incredible practical joke here....like if it was truly intentional, it would go down as possibly the greatest troll of a game in history.
    *I want to get back to designing nasty stages in Smash Ultimate but Katana Zero is too good to put down at the moment...
     
    I always enjoy hearing this guy rip into something, and Anthem is such an easy target...here's a new vid he posted on the latest going on with it:

    Well in Lucas' original Episode 3 script Palpatine was responsible for the birth of Anakin.  They may bring that story thread back.
