Bodes well for the future of the series now that they are allowed on the PC.

Indeed.

I’d pretty much given up on them ever being released for PC, so I’m glad they finally got it sorted out.

I need to take a look and see what kind of modding scene the Yakuza games have on PC these days.

Do you use many mods in general?

I occasionally look into them, but always end up getting put off by the potential faff and then never bother. :hehe:

The only thing I persevered with was the Resi 4 HD Fan Project, as that was just too good to miss out on. :cool: It was relatively straightforward to install too.

Most of the Yakuza mods I’ve seen are model swaps, like switching Kiryu with Haruka. :laughing:

I’m pretty sure someone fixed the Ono Michio costume in Yakuza 6 too, so you can always wear the proper one with a gigantic head. :D

It depends on the game and the extent of the mods. Main ones I've used over the years have been for Skyrim, Star Trek Bridge Commander and the Persona 4 Golden last year. Oh and I did try a load of the realistic graphics mods on GTA V which were pretty impressive.

It got overshadowed by the Nintendo Direct, the State of Play and the Tokyo Game Show all happening around the same time, so I'm just going to leave this here, Freedom Planet 2 recently came out on Steam. Of interest to @Jonnas but also to anyone who like Sonic games because this game has been getting glowing user reviews from those who've played it.

There's currently a 10% discount on Steam. It isn't coming to Switch until next year though, or any other console for that matter. The game has been in development for 7 years. The guy who made Sonic Mania, Christian Whitehead, designed the engine behind this game and its probably the closest you're ever going to get to a Sonic Mania 2, even moreso than Origins. Its about more than twice the size of its predecessor with even going fast through it setting you back 9 hours or so.

Thanks for reminding me about Freedom Planet 2! The game's looking crazy good, and I'm glad that seems to be, in fact, true!

Sad thing is the terrible timing for me. I'm busy with a lot of stuff in life, in the middle of a couple other playthroughs, and it's also been pain to play anything on my PC lately (it takes forever to boot, among a bunch of other flaws). As such, I'm tempted to get this on Switch when that version comes out... Or maybe I should just get a better PC already.

Regardless, I'll pick it up as soon as a good opportunity clears up.

Anyone ever used Gamemaker to try and build a game? I'm in another one of my creative kicks in the mood for a project and was thinking about trying out Gamemaker through Steam.

Looks like the Steam Deck has switched from preorders to Buy Now with shipping in 1-2 weeks.

I know the site says 1 - 2 weeks, but does anyone know how long it is likely to take for the Steam Deck to arrive after ordering?

Mine arrived about 5-7 days after my pre-order was processed.  So I'd imagine that you won't be waiting long :)
