I usually very much appreciate Brad’s criticisms, but his outright dismissal of Kid Icarus merely because the game is diminished when playing without sound seems extremely unfair.

But it’s also very much a niche series. People like me who have no personal experience with it want to know if Yakuza 5 will appeal to newcomers. Based on this article, I don’t think I would find it appealing. I’m sure this game’s writing is… Read more »
