It's ultra-rare that I preorder anything; but Yakuza 0 is going to be well worth it. Details, screens, and more await...
Make Kamurocho Yours - Yakuza 0 Launches in the Americas and Europe on January 24
Pre-orders Now Available for the Prequel to SEGA's Long-running Crime Drama
IRVINE, Calif. - July 27, 2016 - Behind the decadent glitz and glamour of 1980s Japan lies an underworld of money, sin, and above all else... opportunity. Anything and everything is ripe for the taking, but always remember that more money inexorably leads to more problems. And for Yakuza 0's two protagonists, Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima, the problems are just starting. And their problems will become players' problems when SEGA® of America, Inc.'s gangster drama Yakuza 0 launches in the Americas and Europe beginning Jan. 24, 2017 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. The game will be released physically and digitally for $59.99, and pre-orders are now live at retail!
Yakuza 0 tells the origin stories of Kazuma Kiryu, the rising Dragon of Dojima, and Goro Majima, before he's known as the Mad Dog of Shimano, as they fight, hustle, flirt, and dance their way through the seedy underbelly of Japan. Taking place in a chilly but electric Kamurocho, Tokyo in December 1988, Kiryu's story follows his steady ascension up the ranks of the Dojima yakuza crime family until he gets blamed for a debt collection gone wrong. Kiryu must utilize his cunning and his fists in order to regain his honor and save the reputation of his father figure, Shintaro Kazama. Meanwhile, Goro Majima is running a popular cabaret in Osaka, but he wants more than anything to rejoin the yakuza clan that ousted him. He'll need to complete a series of impossible tasks set by his bosses, but will these tasks push Majima past the point of no return?
Yakuza 0 Features:
The Dragon's Origins: What lies in a man's past defines his future, and in this case, we learn a lot about what inspires Kiryu down the paths he takes in the rest of the Yakuza series. Plus, you don't get to be called "Dragon" without being able to knock a few heads. Combat styles can be hot-swapped during fights for some of the most intense battles in the Yakuza series to date. Embrace the Mad Dog: For the first time in a numbered game, long-time NPC Goro Majima is playable. With his own fighting style, abilities, and his penchant for turning sleaze into profit, stepping into the role of Yakuza's most eccentric character will provide some eye-opening insight. The Decadence of the 1980s in Japan: Cash rules everything in the world of Yakuza 0, and in the game, there are a million ways to spend, make, or take money. From cash spilling out of the pockets of gang members you fight to Telephone Clubs, Disco Halls, or even Pocket Circuit car races, there are tons of ways to be a well-to-do gangster.
Yakuza 0 is being localized by SEGA® of America, Inc. and will be released physically and digitally in the Americas and Europe beginning Jan. 24, 2017. The game will be available on PlayStation 4 systems for $59.99 (with comparable prices throughout the Americas), and is not yet rated by the ESRB.

Both Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 are rated T (Teen) by the ESRB. ###
This one has been a long time coming to DVD in a complete series form like this, so it's great to see Shout! get it done. The show is still pretty entertaining after nearly two decades and Shout! did a good job with the release. It goes without saying, but, like any release, it could have benefited from more extra features.

Hard Reset Redux
On the whole, Hard Reset Redux is a competent and enjoyable old school shooter on a new school engine. The changes in Redux are significant between the previously released original and Extended Edition, and giving current-gen console players a go at it is a welcomed move. If you played Hard Reset before, there may not be quite enough here to make a return, but if you're otherwise down for a good FPS experience, this is a pretty solid choice.
