In light of a recent announcement of 2 brand new games, a re-make of a game that is coming to western markets for the first time, and more PC ports, this series is something you need to play if you want to round out your gaming experience. Like a Dragon, better known colloquially as Yakuza, is a adventure/beat-em-up about a single man and his relationships and experiences in his life in the yakuza. Quite honestly, there aren’t many games to compare it to- this series really is its own beast. Known for flashy fighting skills, interesting side-quests and a literal TON of weird things to do on the side, this series now has 8 main-line games, 5 spin-offs and a brand new spin-off and mainline game announced to be in development.
Let me just show you just what you’re missing out on:
These fights are unlike any other.
The fighting in this game is insane. It’s honestly way better to watch, and even more better to experience it for yourself.
Beyond the pretty colours, the game itself makes you feel good about getting into fights. punching, kicking, throwing couches, and even smacking someone with a gun after running out of bullets all makes sense within the world and feels amazing to master. Getting those Tiger Drop counters is always satisfying, especially watching that health-bar being siphoned from the enemy. Or just do what I did and button mash- either way, beating down these terrible people is insanely cathartic after watching the news.
Also, the Substories and Sidequests.
Most games these days do side-quests that take you off the beaten path to help pad out game-play and help you explore the world. In basically every Like A Dragon game, every side-quest is a new character storyline, a brand new secret path to open up, and a new way to find powerful weapons and items that you can’t find otherwise. This means all the goofy nonsense (and there is a LOT of goofy, unhinged madness) that happens in these sidequests not only is fun to experience, but it also enhances your experience playing the game. Just check this wonderful snippet out:
That’s right. That’s the main character. On a side quest. To learn English. It’s charming, funny, and silly, all things extreme
ly welcome in a story about theft, betrayal, and murder. Don’t forget- this is a game about the Yakuza!
Look at all this… STUFF
Beyond all that, there’s also SO MUCH
STUFF TO DO! I’m talking RC Car racing. I’m talking Mahjong. I’m talking casino games. I’m talking arcade games. I’m talking karaoke. I’m even talking taking pictures of CATS!
These aren’t game-specific, either. All of these things can be done in basically every Yakuza game, and they’re all different in every game! The arcade games change every installment. The AI gets better for every casino, card and mahjong minigame you play. Different songs are available in each installment. Ryu Ga Gotoku doesn’t skimp out on these details, as these are some of the best parts of each game.
Did i mention food? I know you can’t actually taste anything, but these games are essentially mini-tours of different parts of Japan, and show off different cuisines and everything.
If you like video games, you need to play these games. If you like unique story-lines, you need to play these games. Hell, if you like soap-operas, these games are 100% worth your time. You can pick them up for under $30 each for the first few, and honestly it’s worth every cent.
And, if you end up becoming like me, I’m sure you’ll be picking up Like A Dragon: Ishin, out February 22!
In a world where people only post about the happy things in their lives, others create a life for themselves thinking that others’ lives are better or more happening than theirs. But the question is, ‘Is the Instagram World even real?’
The world of social media or as we call it the ‘influential world’ has a major impact on people’s lives these days. Influencers are well aware of their target audiences and they bring out the versions of themselves that people want to see. But what we actually see is the polished lives of celebrities or influencers on instagram.
They have created a fairytale world which is perfect and has an effect on young minds leading to mental health issues. The allured minds try and imitate these unattainable bodies and lifestyles which have been created by means of filters or fake editing.
But is the modification with the photos really that important? Nobody in this world is flawless or Nobody’s life is perfect. Everybody has bad days or bad photos which very few people are willing to share with the world.
HARSH TRUTH OF THE TRAVEL INFLUENCING
The point is comprehensible that people are on Instagram to show the best versions of themselves. Their lives while having a good time on a vacation with their friends. The world of travel influencers which they show on the platforms is unreal. They have struggles they deal with, while travelling, which are not portrayed to the real world. You might pick up on a restaurant by watching an influencer’s instagram story. But, after going there you realise it actually tastes like disappointment.
After the rise of the pandemic, there is a relatively high explosion of people wanting to choose to be an ‘instagram influencer’ as their career path. But what they don’t realise is the harsh truths of invasion of their privacy in the world of fame.
The need to use social media to keep updated about what’s happening around the world is quite arguable. But the best way to use it positively would be not to obsess too much over these things and miss out on all the amazing things in life that are right in front of you!

We all have our cravings, we all have somewhat of a sweet- tooth; and you would lying to yourself if you say you didn’t! As much as we love having cookies, pies, brownies, pastries, and cakes; there’s no denying that they are in fact sugar-infested snacks which are not the most healthy eating options. But! What if I told you that you no longer have to deny your cravings for sweet snacks to live a healthy lifestyle.
With the positive trend going on about living healthy lifestyles; eating healthy isn’t just popular among athletes and models anymore. In this day and age, almost everyone is trying to eat healthy now. We are all switching to sugar-free and more organic foods, and over-all reforming ourselves to live healthier lifestyles.
Healthy food vs Tasty food
There has always been a huge misconception between delicious food and healthy food. It’s somewhat become a cliché that healthy or organic food can’t be tasty, sugar-free snacks can’t be savory. However, this is not true. At PSB café we are offering sugar-free bakery goods, along with a vast menu with various organic food offerings that are most delicious snacks you could ask for.
If you’re someone who absolutely loves having sweet bakery goods, yet unfortunately, are always trying to avoid them due to health concerns; well, do we have something special for you!
Introducing our New Sugar-free Brownies
We are delighted to announce the arrival of our sugar-free brownies. Our new sugar-free brownies are made specifically to cater to your taste. You could not ask for a more scrumptious snack on campus.
Our brownies, along with being delicious, are NOT bad for your health. As the word suggests, our new brownies are 100% sugar-free. We have no added sugar or added artificial flavors in our brownies. The brownies are 100% organic and are made from organic flour, organic sugar-free chocolate chips and organic brown eggs. Our new sugar- free brownies also happen to have a high nutrition value, which is why you could use them specifically as an energy bar as well to kick-start your day.
Catering to student needs
With the ongoing stressful lives of college students, we always need something to sweeten up our day. For some individuals, a simple brownie could lift up your spirits and help kick start your day. PSB cafe is trying to accommodate all of their customer needs. As we recognize that students have limited budgets, our brand new sugar-free brownies are priced at just $3.49 only. We are also offering a special meal package, where our sugar-free brownies will go hand in hand with our signature coffee for the affordable price of just $4.
Convenience and availability
We at PSB cafe think of it as our responsibility to provide students at Sheridan with the best and fastest services. We have opened up branches of our cafe in all of Sheridan’s campus including the Davis, HMC, and Trafalgar campus. For all our campus branches we have set-up pick up ordering system using our mobile app. In our mobile app, we have set up a system where if students enter their student IDs, a discount code is provided to them for majority of our products.
In our stylish new dining area, we are also offering high speed internet facilities. That way our students would also be able to sit down and study, all while also enjoying our scrumptious new sugar-free brownies.
Where to find us?
Our cafe branches are located near the cafeterias at all of the Sheridan campuses. For our recent opening at the HMC campus, we are situated in A building on the first floor. Moreover, you can also find us at our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram page under the name of ‘ PSB Cafe’. Our mobile application is also now available and fully functional.
