Fans of the Yakuza spin-off Judgment and bad-boy Japanese actors will be happy to learn that there is a mod to bring Pierre Taki’s voice and likeness back to the game. After being detained for cocaine possession and use in 2019, Taki-portrayal san’s of the character Kyohei Hamura was cut from the Japanese version of Judgment, which was never released in the West. At least over here, the scrubbed actor is now finally brought back for the first time thanks to the Judgment Pierre Taki Restoration Patch.

When Sega finally made the entire series available on Steam this month, Judgment became accessible on PC for the first time. The Pierre Taki Steam version, which is available on NexusMods, is essentially a transfer of the PS4 version. Taki played the role of Hamura, a captain of the Tojo-clan Matsugane family. They are the sizable crime family that Kazuma Kiryu, the main character of Yakuza, belonged to. Couldn’t they just leave it go that Taki’s portrayal of Olaf in the Japanese translation of Kingdom Hearts III was also canceled due to his arrest?

More Yakuza games are being developed by Devs Ryu Ga Gotoku, however the series is now known globally as Like A Dragon to correspond with its Japanese name. Over the following few years, three games in the venerable series will be released, with the first being the historical remake Like A Dragon: Ishin! in February. The 2023 release of Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, which features Kiryu, is one of the greatest and longest game titles I’ve ever heard. The following mainline Yakuza game, Like A Dragon 8, is anticipated to release in 2024.

For £84/$99/€99, The Judgment Collection is available on Steam and Amazon separately. You can also download each game separately. NexusMods has the Pierre Taki Restoration Patch available.


Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good story. Personally I love reading about the people who inspire me and what it took for them to achieve their success. As I am a bit of a self confessed tech geek I think there is no better way to discover these stories than by reading every day some articles or the newspaper . My bookcases are filled with good tech biographies, they remind me that anyone can be a success. So even if you come from an underprivileged part of society or you aren’t the smartest person in the room we all have a chance to reach the top. The same message shines in my beliefs. All it takes to succeed is a good idea, a little risk and a lot of hard work and any geek can become a success. VENI VIDI VICI .

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
