Pain Management & Yakuza

Pain Management & Yakuza

I haven’t played a game since my last livestream, and my neck/shoulder/hand still hasn’t let up. Fortunately, Yakuza: Like a Dragon doesn’t require a bunch of movement from my hands, just some button presses on a controller for the most part. I made a little progress, and the only real workout I experienced was riding a bicycle to obtain cans. I’m having fun with it!

I’ve been being good; doing my stretches, switching to my left hand at the computer and researching gaming chairs, a back massager, and I’ve already got an ergonomic mousepad with a gel wrist on its way. I’m still on the lookout for a new mattress… only been able to find a twin, too small for my ass. I’ve added padding to the bed to make up enough of the difference to last me for the time being. Hopefully I start to see some results, so far that pinch has shown no sign of going away.

I’m still waiting to hear back on my MRI appointment; it’s going to be a few hours out of town, but even traveling makes it cheaper than going to any local hospital… On the bright side I can at least sit down at the dinner table without having to lie down on the ground to get the pressure to go away.

I hope you really enjoy Yakuza: Like a Dragon. I had such a great time with it and the change of direction in gameplay felt pretty fresh and exciting without the feeling of missing the standard brawler RPG. Just started it myself again on PC.

Stay safe and well! 🙂

It really is it’s own kind of beast that works so well. I can understand how some people don’t like the change but that doesn’t make it any less of a great entry! Ryu Ga Gotoku studio says that now all mainline games are gonna be turn based JRPG’s while the spin off’s (Judgement & the new Lost Judgement) will be the main brawler type which I am honestly fine with, it’s good to see them experimenting and keeping both sets of fans satisfied. Oh man, there’s so much going on when you’re not doing the main story. The side… Read more »
