The wonderfully named Glee-Cheese Studio has its sights set high here. It’s a rhythm game, sure – tap buttons in time to the music, occasionally hold one down, you know how it goes – but one with a narrative focus. You see, correctly synching button

One of the peculiarities of Sega’s PC port release schedule – releasing the series (almost) chronologically, rather than in the order they were made – is it lessens the original impact that Yakuza 6 once had. It’s no longer a showcase for the new Dra
