Even the best detectives need a helping hand every now and then to crack the case. If you have just started Judgment, here are some pointers to keep in mind when playing the game that will be particularly useful early on.
Show Me The Money
Money is harder to come by in this game early on but fret not. If you have a Yakuza save file on your machine, you can check your mailbox outside your office and received a nice 50,000 JPY to start.
A more reliable way of acquiring currency, however, is taking on Side Cases that will open up along the course of the game. Be on the lookout for these as they are very rewarding and require little effort.
Heal Me Baby
Just like in Yakuza, healing can be accomplished through the consumption of items. When you’re out and about, you can drop by a restaurant to replenish health. But during a fight, you will need something on your person.
As always, you can head over to the Poppos convenience stores to purchase food items, so be sure to stock up as much as you possibly can. New to the game are mortal wounds that can only be healed through the use of medkits or visiting the doctor. Medkits are expensive, however.
Thank You, Come Again
An easy way to get a good chunk of skill points early on is heading to the Poppo stores to make purchases. Speak to the store clerk and you will be told spending a certain amount will gain you loyalty points. Get 10 of these and you will get 500 skill points just like that.
Everyone Liked That
The Reputation system isn’t quite explained, which is unfortunate since increasing it is the only way for you to gain access to certain side missions.
The only way to boost your Reputation is to take on friend events and certain side cases. Complete a given task from a friendly and your reputation meter will go up by one. The bartender over at Bar Tender also has some tasks for you to complete in order to increase your rep.
Kickstarting A Gogo
As you progress through the story, you will come across an individual by the street corner informing you about a crowdfunding app going by the name Quickstarter. Using the app, you will be able to put money into various projects. Once fully funded, you will be rewarded accordingly. You can either expedite the process with spare cash or wait for funding to do its thing slowly.
Rewards range from new parts for your drone to special abilities Yagami. Particularly recommended is the QR Code Compendium project that alerts players of nearby QR codes that can be scanned for even more goodies.
