Not sure exactly WHICH one, because I believe they have a few, so I wqs stumped about all the choices, but a recent local article recommended the MSI, and I just used their link to get to that MSI, and just hope it's ok. I'm not a huge PC gamer, but I did want to take advantage of the MGS deal because the PC version will have an option for the Japanese voices included...
I think there's only one that's specifically called the Gaming edition. It's in a black & red box with a white dragon on the front, supposed to be a very good card, overclocks better than the ASUS STRIX card apparently.

Yeah, I think I have that one. I'll try to install it today, if I feel like it. Not sure yet. Weather seems to be good for pretty much the first time in weeks, so I might go cyclinh outside instead...

Just picked up Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 20th Ann. Ed. for PS4. Enjoyed the demo, and with Option Files now available for PS4, it should be pretty good.

Yakuza's Law
Image Image Image

Yakuza's Law is the digipack from the HK Video box set. The full set is oop and I already have the other two films in better quality, so I just picked this one from an eBay seller who was selling it separately.

The LW&C sets are oop as well, so I needed to pick it up before it becomes impossible to obtain for a reasonable price.

How does the LW+C TV show compare to the films, Hung? :) Are they equally good?

Probably not because that would make it the greatest TV series ever made :lol:

That being said, people say it's quite good. I haven't seen any episodes yet and my Collection 1 is in Finland, so...

I held off on buying the Lone Wolf TV series all these years because I was waiting to make sure they released the whole series. Did they release all of it?

The first season, except for episode 2 which has never been available anywhere since the very first TV broadcasting.

Seasons 2 and 3 are available on DVD in Japan, without subs of course.

Thanks for the info. I still can't decide if I should get it. It would be cool to have the whole first season, but I'm guessing that episode 2 is a pretty important episode.


I got The Fly ( Jeff Goldblum) 2 disc edition, Pumpkinhead, Mud and Black Swan. All 4 DVDs were $5 each. And I got Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Donald Sutherland) Blu Ray for $6.50. If you have a Wal Mart near you be sure to check out all the horror movies that just came in.

I don't see any reason not to get it. That episode is missing from the Japanese dvds as well, and it hasn't been shown on TV except when the season aired for the very first time. It doesn't look like it's going to be available anytime soon if ever.

Who knows. Self censorship would be my guess. Plenty of examples of that in Japanese cinema, e.g. Toei pulling Horrors of Malformed Men from distribution for being too politically incorrect, Nikkatsu pulling Machiko Ohtani's entire filmography from distibution because she no longer wants people to know what kind of movies she did 35 years ago, and I think Toho has banned a few of their own films as well, and Yoshihiro Nishimura is unable to distribute some of his 1980s films because the stars hace since become famous politicians. And then there are all the films that feature either unlicensed music or music that has only been licensed for domestic release (e.g. Crazy Thunder Road can't be released abroad for this reason).

I might have a TV rip of episode 2 on disc somewhere in the recesses of my collection, so if anyone's thinking of getting the DVD set just let me know and I'll check see if I've got it & can upload if so. Had the series on tvrip long before any DVDs were availble, still haven't seen the bloody show!

I'd be very interested in knowing if you really have it, because my understanding was that it (EP2) hasn't been on TV since the 1970s...

Hmm, I probably don't have it then. I can't remember what my rips were sourced from, something rough looking as I recall! I'll try and find them tomorrow!

I already saw Yakuza Masterpiece on VoD and it's bloody amazing! Easily the best film I have seen all year. I don't always agree with Chris D's reviews, but this time I can only repeat his conclusion: mindblowing!
