But over in Japan, the series is a big business. "Just how big?",you ask, as you pretend to read an Archie to avoid making eye c...

Yakuza: Of The End designed to bring shooter fans to Yakuza

Yakuza: Of The End was ... unexpected. Not in that it's another Yakuza sequel -- we can pretty much count on those being at least annual -- but in that it's a zombie shooting game.
