Yakuza 3

Yakuza 3 is a videogame of the Grand Theft Auto variety, in which you control a character who runs around getting into fights.  That’s about all I know.

Jake Adelstein is a journalist who spent 12 years on the crime beat in Tokyo and wrote a book about it. In the process he got to know some actual Yakuza members pretty well.  Well enough that he got a few of them to play and review Yakuza 3 for Boingboing.net.  In brief, they liked it, but said the violence was unrealistic.  Got that?  Unrealistic violence in a videogame.

What a great idea.  I wonder if the Overmind is available to review the new Starcraft.

[Yeah, I favored the Zerg in the original game.  Are they still in the new one?  Anyone?]
