Yakuza Collection & Reviewers

Hey all, I'm going to be adding some random posts to my blog to fill the gaps in time between my BIG posts. Mostly they'll just be stupid stuff that nobody cares about but it might interest some people and it also helps keep the place alive.

Today I finally found "Yakuza 2" for the PS2. For those who don't know, Yakuza 2 is one of, if not the, rarest game(s) for the PS2. Most people won't agree but it's getting almost impossible to find this game, and if you can find it it's usually expensive; typically in the $40-$70 range.

I was able to pick this game up at GameStop for $16 today in mint condition with the Insert and Manual and Case completely intact, something that's very rare at GameStop's nowadays.

With this purchase I now own Yakuza 1, 2, 3 & 4. I have yet to purchase "Yakuza: Dead Souls" but I don't think I consider that really a part of the Franchise as a whole but rather a sort of spin-off, though for a complete collection I must purchase it, but I don't really think it's worth the $39.99+ that it retails for now, so I'm waiting for it to get back down.

I was able to pickup the 4 games for the following prices (before taxes of course):

Yakuza 1: $3.99
Yakuza 2: $15.49
Yakuza 3: $15.00
Yakuza 4: $20.00

Not bad considering I got all 4 of them for the price of a single new game and all of them are in very good condition. I've included some pictures below to show you.

I'm happy I was finally able to complete the "Quadrilogy" and once I have "Dead Souls" I'll finally be complete :).


I've been talking to a few people about becoming Game Reviewers over at my "True Reviews" blog. So far most have been stale and shown little interest, so here I am again letting everyone and anyone who cares know that I am looking for people who would like to write reviews at the "True Reviews" blog.

This is a Volunteer position, but what it will do is give you a medium in which to improve your writing skills (should they need improving) as well as the opportunity to get your name known and be more involved in the Gaming Community.

You don't have to have a huge Game collection or the latest-and-greatest of anything to be a part of it. I'm looking to fill the reviews site up with Games, Accessories, Systems and more from every year of Video Games: NES/SNES/Genesis/Xbox/Playstation 1, 2, 3/Gamecube/Gameboy/ etc. etc.

So if you're interested in joining up then shoot me an email on my contact page. If you don't want to scroll down or can't seem to find it, my email is here:

Hope you all enjoyed the post (for what it's worth) and check back often for more updates into the Gaming World.
