Yakuza: Like a Dragon looks to be headed for Steam

Despite the Yakuza series' recent popularity, there aren't many Yakuza games on Steam: Just Yakuza 0 (which is excellent), Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2. Last summer, series producer Daisuke Sato hinted at possible PC releases of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5, which haven't actually happened yet. But it looks very much like Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon, the most recent game, is headed to Steam.

It's surreal to be playing a high resolution, high framerate Mario 64 on PC, but I've just done exactly that.

Something was a little off about the Doom Eternal soundtrack that released in April: As audio expert thatACDCguy explained on Twitter, the OST mix of some songs is heavily compressed. "The music itself is phenomenal, but this mix on the official soundtrack is frankly terrible," they wrote. Composer Mick Gordon responded to say that he didn't mix the majority of the tracks on the OST, and later implied that some kind of beef with id Software was going on, telling a fan that he doubted he'd work with the studio again in the future.
