How the fuck is this not a winning hand?Yakuza thread
>>390196374>have 3 pair>winning handare you retard?
>>390196374Don't you know how to gamble?
>>390196374You needed to ditch one of your pairs to complete a set of 3.
>>390196374Learn to play mahjong.
Man fuck this cheating ass AI I can't beat anyone at Shogi
>>390196374>not gambling russian roulette
>>390197070download ShogiUI, make a match of you vs you, copy the opponent's moves on his side and turn on hints on your side.Easy ranks easy money
>>390197423Of course it's easy when you cheat.
>>390196374You need 4 sets and a pair to have a winning hand OP. (Or at least be 1 tile away from finishing it at the end of the round) You have 2 sets and 3 pairs.
>>390196374How is that a winning hand at all? Its not even complete.
>>390196374I would tell you to look up the yakus in the rules but what you have doesn't even qualify as a complete hand
>>390196374Nigga you ain't even in tenpai yet
>>390196374>3 pairs and only 1 setGee I wonder.
>>390196843No, he should just complete one of his pairs, and then he'll be in tenpai to complete his last meld from either pair left.
>>390196374You don't know anything about mahjong, do you?
>>390198881Actually n/m you're right he does need to get rid of a pair.
>>390196374Don't forgot to hit square every turn to see if you can richii
yakuza 0 came out two years and a half ago, and it's still full priceis it worth it
>>390199435Yes, it's actually on sale on PSN for $35 right now
>put like 20 hours into mahjong>did all the completion points except winning enough money in it, and I can't win anything at all
>>390196374>How the fuck is this not a winning hand?
>>390196374You have 3 pairs. I don't know much about Japanese mahjong but every other version that doesn't fly.
i still can't believe i actually 100%'d the JP version of Yakuza 5.took me over 300 hours
>>390200643Leave the table after every game otherwise you'll be in the negative and winning essentially won't count.
So what is it, 4 triples and a pair for the most BASIC of winning hands. And then you move into more complex territory of straights, different dragons, things like that?
>>390202286Why the jap version? Also fuck that.
>>390204656i wanted the physical version
>>390205129Dont blame you there.
>>390196374Which Yakuza game is this?
>>390205396every yakuza game has a mahjong mini game
>>390205534Sounds like a series I need to get into.
>>3902053960 because he plays as Majima
>>390196374Learn to play Mahjong, I haven't played it in years and know that's not even a complete hand, let ignoring that it's missing a yaku
>>390196374Because you have four doubles and two triples. That's not even remotely close to a legit hand. You either have to go for all doubles by getting rid of wheel 4, 5, a single 6, and the bamboo triple, or you pray you get a lot of wheels and make triples of a lot of those tiles.>>390202286>300 hoursDear lord, I only hit 250ish when accounting for extra Hard and Normal playthroughs.
Why everyone saying he has 3 pairs when I'm counting 4?[11 M] [789 S] [22 P] [456 P] [66 P] [99 P]
>>390206083when you're gonna begin playing Ishin?
So...I just finished that car chase section in yakuza zero.I was under the impression kiryu doesn't kill anyone?
>>390206083>That's not even remotely close to a legit hanWhat's 7 pairs Yaku then?
>currenrly halfway done in 2 and then play 3 through 5 before 6 releases in March>Xenoblade 2 announced to release on Dec 1stFuck.
Someone should make a mahjong solver and put it online.
>>390196374Fuck Mahjong I can't understand it to save my life.Couldn't they come up with a simpler game?
>>390206154They're probably counting the Wheel 6s as a triple and thinking the 4 and the 5 are just in there for no reason/he's waiting for a Wheel 3.>>390206246A month probably, >>390206393That's exactly what I said, you could go full doubles with that hand if you wanted but as he was it would take a lot of luck to rework that hand and a lot of wasted tiles and turns.
>>390196374why would that be a winning hand? you have a bunch of incomplete triplets, not to mention they're 1 and 9.
I've finished 0 and Kiwami and am about to start vanilla 2 on PS2. How fucked am I? Is there a ton of censored shit in 2? Is it stripped down like I heard 3 was when it came to the states? Also is the combat going to feel super different?
>>390206546Look at the bright side, at least it doesn't lock off a significant portion of the game if you can't beat it, requiring hours of wasting time to beat an AI that plainly cheats.BvS Wasted too many hours of my life.
>>390206314Car scenes don't count to his kill count
>>390206838only Y3 got fucked by localization
>>390206519I got this tool you can use whenever you're playing.Pretty useful. https://mega.nz/#!8sd1QLSB!BqdO3hoNxD3bvwaM_xFAu8AD_il9XfV57ObOHARXTVs
>>390206838>is the combat going to feel super different?yes because you didnt play at release order. we warned you about this
>>390204425if you're new, just aim to form an All Simples hands every single time. don't steal, don't call riichi, just try to from 4 sets of 3 (either straights or triplets) of tiles 2-9 and a pair (of tiles 2-8). discard all 1s, 9s, dragons and winds.
>20 Indigo stones for rusty pistol in Ishinhow the fuck do i farm this? its worse than farming dragon materials
>>390206546Mahjong is like the simplest fucking game ever. It's EXACTLY rummy except the conditions for a winning hand are different and it's not always advisable to lay down your melds on the table.
http://tenhou.net/0/?L7447Sit the fuck down, faggots. Right row, third button from the top.
>>390204425Pretty much.See >>390198005Keep in mind that you can mix some of these yaku, like Pinfu + Tanyao (only 2-8 in sequences only and no special tiles).Some of these are hard to make, so don't try too hard if the draws aren't with you.
>>390207409Two more people. You know you want to play the maajan.
>>390207716No idea. It won't work if more than one window is open, so try in web or something.
>>390206838>Is there a ton of censored shit in 2? Is it stripped down like I heard 3 was when it came to the states?No, that only happened in 3 and only 3 and they only really removed the Taichi porn mag substory in what could be considered censorship. The rest of the games only lose the licensed songs like the title songs and certain fight songs so they get replaced for generic rock or something else that sounds somewhat generic to fit the scene.>Also is the combat going to feel super different?A bit, the general way you fight is the same throughout all games, but styles were only introduced in Kenzan and then weren't in the games until Ishin to Kiwami. You won't have as many Heat Actions, you can't freeflow your hits (I.E. punch forward, punch behind, finisher forward, second finisher behind) without pretty much stopping your movement and breaking the combo (Doesn't get better until around 4), and there's way less minigames to deal with. It's just something you have to deal with if you're going back into the older games, if you're starting from 0 or Kiwami and then jumping to 1 or 2 you're basically doing the equivalent of playing something like one of the latest Ratchet and Clank games and then going back to the original PS2 one that has no strafe or aiming. The newer games are the culmination of years of progress and refinement, removing and adding things to see what works and what people like.
>tfw managed to get a Riichi Ippatsu>tfw managed to get Mangans>tfw managed to get a Haneman>tfw managed to get a Full Straight>tfw managed to win 10 and win the required pointsFeels so fuckin' good, holy shit.
>>390207793Web works, but what do I do after that?
>>390201735How much better will I become at Mahjong after watching Akagi?
>>390197010How? Where you guys learned this shit? Watching Akagi is not enough.
>>390208006you'll enjoy Akagi better if you have a basic understanding of Mahjong, I managed to learn about mahjong by just playing mahjong in yakuza, literally. Looked up what worked and what doesnt, rules etc.
>>390208006You'll get worse because you'll start trying to do hype anime shit that works 1% of the time in real life.
>>390208359I tried out Noten riichi mahjong; It's free, and in English. It has tutorials about the basic gameplay and winning conditions. I've tried it out and I've somewhat getting the hang of it now, I'd recommend it if you want to start learning mahjong.
the fuck is that hand!?op, better for you to avoid this game. it'll consume you...I'm playing in fucking parlors now
Playing Yakuza 2 now after beating KiwamiDon't know why people like to say these PS2 games are unplayable compared to 0, the combat feels nearly the same, if anything the fixed camera angles and slow move speed bother me moreHoping I can find 3-5 cheap somewhere
>>390209278>Hoping I can find 3-5 cheap somewhere3 and 4 are on Amazon for $40 because of reprints, 3 is physical only. 5 is either Japanese physical or $40 online digitally with sales not being that often. Take your pick.
>>390209242I wish anyone in my city played, let alone there being parlors.
>>390207883Thanks for this! I was mostly worried about the localization but you seemed to clear that up so thats cool! As far as what's missing from 3 that doesn't sound too terrible. Still not ideal. Sounds like I'm just dealing with less refined combat. I can handle that. I just want to be caught up story wise by the time 6 hits in March. Thanks again.
I CAN'T READ THE FUCKING MAN TILESSOMEONE HELP
>>390207963how long did it take you to get all those?
>>390209560>As far as what's missing from 3 that doesn't sound too terrible.There's a lot more than what I mentioned, I just listed what would be considered censorship. If you want the full list:http://forums.sega.com/showthread.php?322120-Full-list-of-cut-contentAgain though, 3 is the outlier in this, the worst everything else gets is just music swaps due to licensing costs (Main theme music and stuff like that, not karaoke). Some are alright, others are completely forgettable (A lot of 5's boss fights have more impact due to the Japanese songs that we didn't get for example). For the most part it's just less refined gameplay, they're all still good and fun despite how negative that sounds, you just have to understand that the further back you go the less refined it was. Missable substories, missable locker keys, missable heat actions, missable items, substories don't show on the map, minigames have absurd minigame AI that if you've played Kiwami's pool is like that level of difficulty in every single game in 3, minigame completion requirements are pretty terrible, freeflow wasn't properly done until around 4, Kiryu gains and loses Heat Actions or they get thrown onto other characters (Shinada's dragging Climax for example was part of another move in 3 I think it was), Amon was completely missable if you made any incorrect choice in a substory until 3 or 4, etc.Just keep with it, they're all fun games, even Dead Souls despite how awful the gameplay looks in videos.

What's your favourite yaku, /v/?
>>390208924It's true.Watched Saki now I automatically kan like an autist in almost every opportunity.I did get Rinshan once though.
Mangan, bitches. Nice game, although I have no fucking idea what you were doing with the kans.
>this tsumo comeback winJust like my japanese annie may. Holy shit.
>>390209571>I lost to someone who can't even read the tiles properly
Do you like the new combat system or prefer the old one?
>>390211553All simples, baby. Even though I almost never seem to be able to get it.
>>390211952Feels bad man
>>390211872Tried to Kan, game Pon'd for me. Kan'd by accident the next turn. That's moon for you.>>390211952>dealing a 4-pin at the end of the game after my riichiServes you right, lesbian.
>tfw you learned Mahjong a long time ago just to play all those old porn arcade games
I'm up for one more game, two spots open at this time. Bullshit ron's and wins out of the ass happen pretty often in mahiong, luck is still a factor so I wouldn't be discouraged with some losses or whatever.It's almost GUARANTEED that some fucker will deal into a hand worth a thousand points when you're two steps from a Kokushi.
>>390208006Read Ten instead of Akagi and try to pull the hype anime shit by cheating. People will spit on you but that's how you descend into the darkness.
>>390209242How can Akagi make mahjong look so damn cool?How can Akagi have such a wonderful voice? It's quiet, but it has just the right amount of edge to it so you still listen
>>390212206Is it actually possible to pull a Kokushi? How lucky is that?
>>390212318I've only ever been 2 tiles away from it, when the game ended in a draw.
>>390212105You just knew it would come in handy and look at you now.
>>390212318I don't remember the exact percentages, but I understand that it's usually only worth going for it if your starting hand is somewhere close, as in you have some 1's, 9's and winds in.Shit like Washizu getting a kokushi from nothing only happens in Akagi.
>>390206498It's not a race. You're going to burn out on yakuza at that rate.
http://tenhou.net/0/?L7447Two spots open, we probably won't draw your blood if you lose points.
>>390212573Nahhh. Also why you delet ths
>>390212487Washizu actually started with a Kokushi iirc.>tfw you'll never have devilish luck nor genius
>>390202286>>390205129High level autism.
>>390212680The amount of bullshit that he pulls is impressive, but all in all there's no doubt that Akagi is better. Even taking the fact that he would've probably died if he didn't get lucky. Akagi deliberately starts from such a retarded position that it would have been legit impossible to win for a normal person.
>>3902126316's combat is okay. Main problem is everyone only attacks when they're right in your face. Makes Tiger Drop a lot harder.
>>390212884>wanting physical is autismautism
>went to 3:0>dropped back to 2:0
>>390212960Also because you'll get destroyed in Washizu Mahjong if you can't control yourself more than in normal Mahjong. Washizu couldn't.Washizu isn't a bad player either but I don't think he compares to people like Akagi, Ten, Soga, or Harada. And as you said Akagi's handicap was huge.
>>390213187sorry bruh I dunno rules so I'll spectate in the meantime
>>390213187Some faggot left. http://tenhou.net/0/?L7447
>>390212680You don't just have luck.You have to harness the winds and pull in luck with madness.Gamble your savings, life or limb and you'll appease the mahjong demons. The demons will turn on you if you don't give up everything though.
>that feel whenever I open my hand I always never have a yaku anymoreI feel so retarded everytime I call something.
>>390211710>>390208924Learning to play mahjong, specially once you hit Tokujou, is learning how to be reserved. It's not flashy, it's not stylish, but it gets you good chances to always change your hand. Call as little as possible, unless you're absolutely certain that offense is the ONLY alternative for this hand. Often, even in desperate situations where you're last, letting someone else deal in or continue their renchan might be better than winning a shitty 2 or 3 han hands. Don't call riichi unless you're absolutely SURE you need that extra han, and that the others WILL fold and you won't need to defend. Do you know where all the dora are? Have you considered what will happen if you draw the dora after you call riichi? Have you considered that maybe all your winning tiles are taken and or in the dead wall? Only count on tsumo, or use riichi to pressure others to fold and drag the round into a draw. A riichi does not mean a win, but it often means dealing in. And of course, don't kan like an idiot. Most Kans are open, so you're adding uradora you can't even use. What if someone calls riichi right after you call kan? Even if you fold, the damage is already done. Don't ride on that rinshan, unless you have at least a 3 sided wait with 12 outs left. Don't go for that Kokushi unless you start out with at least 10 types of honors or terminals. Just reset the round. Don't wait for the riichi to fold if your hand is shitty to begin with.
>completed Komaki's training>still don't know how to do Tiger Drop>can use counter moves with Brawler>yet can't use Tiger DropDo I need more abilities in Dragon to use it?
>>390213792I could go on, but the best advice I can give to anyone who's going to play mahjong is to accept that at the end of the day, it's a luck based game. No amount of skills will save you from getting tsumo'd to death. Even if you play perfectly, there are chances you might never hit tenpai in the entire game. Save yourself the frustration. Identify the mistakes, but don't assume that just because you lost you made mistakes, sometimes you just get shit on massively, maybe for multiple games in a row.When you're losing too much, take a break.
I know we're having fun discussing Majong hereBut who the fuck did Nishiki's men kill if it wasn't Yumi's "sister"? They literally never explain why she was dressed up the same way or why she had the same tattoo in the first place.
>>390213792How fast are you supposed to do these calculations?I'm worried about going online because when I play against AI I either take a shitload of time thinking about my strategy and trying to discern the discards. Or I play rashly.
>>390212573>getting tired of yakuzaNigger u whut?
>>390213910If you've completed his training you've got it. Just needs precise timing.
So I picked up Kiwami on a whim having never played a Yakuza game before and I'm loving it. I'm almost finished and I want to know, do I grab 0 or move on to 2 next? Which is the better follow up to Kiwami?
>>390214262It's easy to burn out. I played 1-6 and was pretty much over it by 4.
>>390214281And someone played into a hand worth 1500. Told ya.
>>390214398I want to get in on this game
>>390214398Could be worse.>Atamahane
>>3902143212 is also getting a remake called Kiwami 2. I'd play 0 first since it's a prequel, so you get to know the likes of Nishiki and Kazama more.
>>390213191Real question, does Washizu Mahjong exist in real life ? Or is it too broken the be actually played ?
>>390214574There are actual sets and tables for this, yes.
>>390214321Go for zero
>>390214183Don't worry too much about it. If you know the yaku, you're pretty much good to start playing on Tenhou. It has a lobby system based on your rank, so you'll start out playing against other beginners, and mistakes will often go unpunished. Furthermore, because of the way your ranking and rating are calculated, it really doesn't matter how badly you do when you're starting out. But if you need a reference, Tenhou gives you a 10+10 second system. As long as you make your play within 10 seconds, you will get your full time back next round; but if you take more than 10 seconds, you'll start using your reserve time. Best case scenario, if everyone takes their full 20 seconds you'll have your own 20 plus the other guy's 60 seconds (20 seconds for 3 players). Worst case scenario, you'll just have your own 20 seconds plus about 5 to 7 it'll take the other guys to play their tiles. If you run out of time, you'll automatically drop the last tile you drew.But really, don't worry too much about it.
>>390214615>Directing /v/ to the gaijin lobbyGet a load of this 2-dan
>>390214506I wish I had a gif of Washizu damn near orgasming over his pinAnd another of him throwing tiles at the guys head
>>390214574https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbHumxnHGLIThey did, it wasn't too different from the manga iirc, like people were more often in danger than usual
>>390213792>>390214102Man, I don't get how in the world you guys remember all these terms and hands. Riichi, Pon, Kan, Chi I get, but the actual scoring hands? I just go for whatever can make a hand, discarding winds and dragons unless I know I can make use of them in a three or four pairing and what I've going for isn't discarded, but otherwise I call Riichi as soon as possible and refuse to Kan, Chi, or Pon unless I know I have three or more of a special tile just for the extra points. Do you have to learn these things for actual games against other people? Because my method has been fine for three of these games now and beating the hard table on 6's demo.
*steals your pants*
>>390214652Okay thanks buddy that's informative.
What's the best Riichi Mahjong app for android? I want to practice while I am at work.
>>390214860>he will be remembered for stealing pants instead of the final battle in Y2
Does Majima appear in Chapter 11? I can't find him.
>>390214903I was using this>>390208971Don't really like the aesthetic, but it's the smallest and it's simple.
>>390214943I'll remember him for this.
>>390214809If you were to sit down at a real table you would need to know all of it.
>>390214809There aren't really that many yaku in the sheet >>390198005 (not counting the stupid stuff you'll never pull)You end up memorizing them pretty fast. The tricky part is knowing when to go for one or the other or combining them.>>390214903Noten Riichi Mahjong works fine, but you have to turn off the WiFi to block ads.
>>390214809You learn as you play more. When I started out there were some yaku I didn't know about, but as long as you know the basics (riichi, tanyao, pinfu, yakuhai) you're mostly good to go. The rest is somewhat intuitive. 3 sets of triplets (sanankou) should be easy to remember. 3 same runs in all suits (sanshoku) is also pretty simple. 7 pairs for chiitoi, all pons for toitoi, single suit + honors for honitsu, pure single suit for chinitsu, and so on and so on. If a hand looks special, it probably falls into some yaku.
>>390214398>2:4Hurry it up, slowpokes

How do you pick people up off the ground in 0?
>>390215652>newfag plays Kiwami 2>omg is that the guy who steal pants!? nice 0 reference!guaranteed will happen
>>390214262They're fun games sure, but the core formula is pretty much the same across all the titles. The series has just refined itself over time, instead of evolve. Which is fine, but it does make it so you can burn out pretty easily.
>>390196761Is there anything to this anime other than le funnee faec?
>>390216020>mastermind turned from young geek to old geezerwhy
>>390216068Anime tits I guess
>>390216107Maybe that's how it was always meant to be portrayed but the original game just didn't have the technology for it.
Where are you?
>>390216263then they could have just modeled an old geezer, i mean they had like 4 or 5 in the original so there's no excuse
My only obstacle has always been the number of hands to mahjong. But I can never stop rewatching Akagi.
>>390196374Is the Frozen Tuna in the Coliseum a weapon? Pretty vague description.
>>390214149Pretty sure its explained in a substory in premium adventure. A lady from another hostess club imitated her look to lure in customers. They thought she was the real Mizuki. Earths Harp? I forget the name of the bar. Should trigger when tou are walking in Champion district
>>390217039Does it have an Attack value associated with it?
Guy from earlier here starting 2. I'm guessing Fuma is a bad translation for Kazama? Threw me off. Haha.
>>390217507yeah but i understand why. kazama and kazuma are way too similar
>go to cat cafe>cat jumps on Kiryu's lap
>>390217283No. But none of them do before they're actually in your inventory. Same goes for the Pat-Bat that I've been eyeing recently.
I've had some legendarily shitty draws this time, it's a wonder I even got third place. Thanks for playing guys.
>>390215193A couple of the things on the left seem pretty easy enough to remember but all those special hands are just ridiculous to me at least. The chance to pull one out is so minuscule for me to even fathom remembering them. Most of those hands on the left I've done on my own though but not because I knew them, the general rules of four triplets one pair seems to get you pretty far even if you don't remember any of the hands. Hell, I don't even know scoring outside of Riichi adding some free points and handing you the potential for stuff like Riichi Ippatsu and so on.>>390217039Frozen Tuna was a weapon in 5 so I would assume so.
Well, there goes my comeback.gg

>>390214102I would be willing to argue the opposite actually. Avoiding a lost is something that is less reliant on luck, and takes more skill than winning, beyond the unavoidable tsumos. Imagine someone is one tile away from a high yaku hand, and you know for a fact which tile it is they're waiting on - it's gratifying as shit. Because it's a luck based game, it's impossible to win all the time. However, the nature of mahjong means it's possible for one to not always lose. If a person is losing all the time, then they're just not paying attention. Hard to fault luck at that stage. Then again, I'm not a mahjong expert, nor do I play with them so it's kind of a moot point. Just my two cents.

What's the best way to raise 300k yen for this sleazy fuck in the mahjong parlor in Yakuza 2? Slots? Beating up punks? Do I have to, god forbid, learn mahjong?
>>3902192763's story was fucking trash. He has no reaction to Kashawagi dying but cries like a literal girl when that literal who dies.
Thanks for all the points guys

Yakuza 3-5 collection for PS4 when?

I haven't played this in years and I don't remember shit so this game is going to be fun.
Can you only play at beginner level for oicho-kabu? It's the only gambling game I have left and it's going at a snail's pace
>>390212223Holy fuck, someone made an edit of my shitty mspaint comic.
One more faggot needed to start this gangbang.
>>390219471not saying kashbro's death isn't impactful than rikiyas but dont make it a black and white thing. both were tragic, tho i did get bothered how kiryu never cared
>>390219412Come on man, Rikiya left as much of an impact on you as his blonde friend did in the end. The love hotel scene is his best one and then there's the whole trip in Kamurocho where you get his tattoo filled in but I never felt attached to him like Kiryu seemed to be. Not to mention from Kiryu's perspective he knew Kashiwagi for years and years and Rikiya for maybe a couple weeks at best. Even Doc Emoto makes you feel like you care more than Rikiya in my opinion despite him barely being in most games.>>390219729No, you have to earn a certain amount of points before it "ranks up". Quit the game you're in every couple winning hands and eventually you get to the one where you can be 500 and then I think it was 1000 on each hand. Same applies to Koi-koi but you can just change it in the settings once you win its thresholds (For Koi-koi it's always like 3500ish and then 8000-10000ish before you can challenge the other tiers). For Chou-han it also increases how much you can bet every time you earn a new option (Usually every 2500ish points) so whenever you get single dice, two die, and then betting against the house you make sure you back out of the game and go back in to raise how much you can be.
>>390220061Thanks, just as you posted that, I unlocedk the intermediate level. About halfway to 10000 points needed now
>>390211553The Yakuman that broke my virginity, of course
>>390211710>>390208924If you want a manga that will break this streak, read Tetsunaki no Kirinji. The main character absolutely refuses to believe in occult powers, and there are no occult powers in the thing at all. Only pure, sensible logic.

>>390196374Why does Yakuza force this shitty ass minigame so hard? 7 fucking checklist requirements on the Completion List for Kiwami? C'mon
Think I could have had a straight but hit that free sex button too early. I'll take it though.
>>390220909Kiwami's checklist is piss easy, mahjong isn't that bad. Even reaching rank 1 isn't that hard (you don't get anything good).
>>390220909>shitty ass minigame
Whats the fastest minigame to make money on the gambling den i need the gear for the checklist? Please don't say koi koi
>>390221043Delicious riichi button I must press it
>>390214809Honestly, it's just playing over and over again you eventually get it. If you play sporadically, you'll forget, but if you just sit and play like, an hour every night, most of that shit you'll have on lock down.
>>390196374Spam square during your turn.
>>390220907Set it to auto-ron for you if your hand works for that.
>>390221308Gambling den is always Chou-han. Bet on a single die, then when you win bet against the house. Win that and cash out. Repeat. Cee-lo can be done as well but the amount of money you gain is solely dependent on you getting a 4-5-6 as a banker.
>work in casino>watch tables of chinese playing Mahjong>have no fucking clue what is going onThey're all just shuffling tiles until one of them says something and they all hand over money to start again.
I have about 200k chips in Kiwami. What's the best thing to buy so I can sell it for cash?
>Komeki says that the Parry is for a more powerful attack than the Tiger DropThe fuck is he talking about?
I just beat the Climax battles in Kiwami. How in the fuck do I get my items? Bob isn't giving them to me
>>390221493It looks cooler in my japtoons

>>390221889>throws tile in the air>get chombo penalty
>>390221607It's because it has more of an opening to activate, and stuns enemies so you can do the DoD heat move after it
So when does 5 get good? I never got around to playing it when it launched in English, so now that I've finished 0 and Kiwami and replaying 2 on the side I finally started 5. Kiryu's chapter was decent enough, but the moment I got stuck as Saejima back in prison yet again I quickly lost the desire to continue. Aside from Akiyama and Kiryu's chapter, I really hated how 4 did the same thing with jumping around characters. I'm glad that shit is gone in 6.
>>390221493>ChineseI've played Chinese Mahjong before. It's basically the most filthy, savage version of mahjong, played only by animals that basically make up rules as they please. You can consider it to be Asian Dominos.
>>390222724Kiryu and Shinada have the best chapters and I would say the big reveal in part 5 and Kiryu meeting Shinada are the best parts of the finale. Saejima takes hours before you finally have some modicum of control over what you want to do, but then his substories are alright though the only one that stands out is the matchbook girl. If you don't like the investigation in the prison and hunting the first several hours are going to be agony for you. Haruka/Akiyama after that is such a slog though. You will hear that first song Haruka has at least something like 15-20 times just from the jobs alone while the second and third have like one or two jobs at most that they're in (Jobs are optional though, so this doesn't matter if you're just running through the story), and her entire chapter is just recruiting people, doing lessons which are just the song you're going to do at the Princess League in full, and sleeping really. Then you get put into Akiyama's shoes and while he gets Saigo and some fun substories the encounter rate is enormous in Sotenbori, literally every two feet there's an encounter which can get really irritating really quickly.Saejima and Haruka/Akiyama's chapters are the low points of 5 in my opinion despite Saejima being much more likable compared to 4, Shinada's almost entirely self contained and it's awesome to see him grow as a character, and Kiryu has the entire taxi stuff, some fun substories, and an alright main story portion.

Watching Akagi did NOT make me good at Mahjong at all.GGs anons
>>390224795Found the arrogant mo-ther fu-cker.
>>390225141Thanks for the games. If you're Zawa, you should have gone for the suuankou on the last hand.
>>390225141That's because you were supposed to read the Legend of Koizumi instead, it's the superior mahjong manga
>>390198005Hmm Japanese mahjong doesn't have seem to have the crazy special winning hands that don't follow the rules, like the one where you have 1 and 9 of each numbered suit, and 1 of each of the other stuff.
>>390225247Yeah I'm not to keen on what to actually go for in terms of scoring. I never completely familiarized myself with the scores of each hands.
>>390225778The yakumen? It has them. That cheat sheet doesn't include them. It's probably because the guy who made it is aware of why American Mahjong became so shitty.
>>390225778Kokushi Muso is right there
>>390225945Oh well I'm dumb, didn't see it, thanks.
>>390225935It's also missing Tenhou, Chiihou and Renho though it's rare enough to be irrelevant.

>>390227093I hated the weapon ones because they all did dick all for damage.Good thing you dont need to do all events to get max rank.
>>390227179sledge hammer hits like a wet noodle
>>390225141You need to read Ten in order to understand the true craziness of mahjong.
>completion list done except coliseum and gambling>spent all of last night drinking and playing koi-koiit's... pretty damn entertaining. Extremely different from all other card games but still has a ton of moving parts.I made 300,000yen then ragequit when the AI pulled 4 kois on month 12 to combo me into the dust. ill be back tomorrow
>>390227635WE HAVE LOST CONTACT WITH STRUT E.
Besides Majima's bat, is there any weapon or skill that makes durability inf? I hate paying off big for 200+ dmg weapons.
>>390225504>That moment when it switches from Super Aryans and world leaders to a guy on a battleship.Is it even worth reading at that point? I read a couple chapters and the guy isn't even remotely as cool as Koizumi.
>>390228124I honestly haven't kept up with it since then either, the whole world leaders fighting each other in Mahjong was the big appeal. The Bushes are still my favorite part. I'm sure the newer stuff is good too, but I just haven't had much time for reading manga.Too bad it'll never be animated
>>390228389At least we got those OVAs out of it all. Super Aryan would have been amazingto see animated though.
besides Akagi, what other mahjong anime is there?
>>390230437Saki I guessbasically Touhou Mahjong with super /u/ going on
>>390230437Legend of Koizumi
>>390230515Speaking of, there's some Saki-related announcement in the next issue of the magazine it runs in. Saki ga Gotoku confirmed
