I'm still trudging through Disgaea 4.Its taking forever but I want to avoid having this on my backlog.

Here's a tip to speed it up: Grind on map 5-2. It's easy to get 150% EXP by tossing the yellow onto the purple (on re-runs; it's different the first time you play it) and turning everything yellow. Gradually raise enemy strength and repeat until you can get the enemies to Lv. 99 and kill them without issue. For some reason the game is glitched; Lv 99 enemies on 5-2 give you TONS of experience. Enough to hit the mid 150's easily within 2-3 runs of that map. Once you're at that level, with proper gear you can pretty much wreck the rest of the game no problem.

Might sound like grindy work but trust me; it's not any faster trying to keep up with the ever leaping difficulty scale.

I have to wonder why this game still hasn't received a review here. >.> Did all the writers go hiding under the bed when it hit the release cycle? Y'all reviewed AT 3; this ain't "that" bad. XD

Ahh...I wasn't expecting the deal-breaker to hit so soon but there it is; pre-order bonus division BS. So I can either get an awesome extra summon/character and boss fight...a yet unknown costume which will most likely look amazing...or some books detailing important facts that'll likely be removed from the narrative because they exist in this book form...

Consider this title to have the official "Double Bird Salute" stamp of disapproval.

I think the problem is Disgaea is generally falling to typical plot problems in modern JRPGs. I mean heck Disgaea 3 was basically the then prevalent (and still is) "zany slice of life/school drama" genre of anime with "demons". Disgaea 4 is pretty much a stock JRPG attempting to act like The Daily Show only failing to realize what exactly makes the latter funny.
950  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 29, 2011, 11:26:16 AM
I still don't know whether or not to pick this up. I loved Disgaea 1, I liked Disgaea 2, I didn't like Disgaea 3. Hmm.

The answer to this question should answer that: How much do you like post-game content?

If you really like the massive level grinding, item world exploring, pirate raiding, and online town raiding, map creation, ect. then get it.

If you're wanting it just for the main game...watch the first few chapters on Youtube first and see if you can stomach the nature of the humor.

And I refuse to believe Axel has even one cool moment in this game. 
I should rephrase then; he does something "useful".

Basically acting as a figurehead-puppet so the Info Bereau can trick all of this Netherworld's demons in praying in order
 to power up Great Flonzinger X (or whatever the hell they call that thing).

Mildly impressive considering how many demons have made jokes about not doing such a thing in the past games.

Then again I might've been so desperate for some non-crappy jokes or something that wasn't overtly preachy (ironic considering it's "preaching" an anti-religion angle) that Axel's scene was heightened by the veritable dump which was everything else.

So basically...she's Mint version 2.0? XD Or would that be version 0.5 since I'm pretty sure she had just a titch more development and more than the one trait to parade throughout the game.
953  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 28, 2011, 09:52:27 AM
Wow...this is actually the first RPG that's ever made me want to just throw the damn thing out the window in vexation. :-\ I thought I was done level grinding and could finally just sit down and beat the game get all the way to the final boss without issues and what do I discover? An evility that pretty much pumps his stats by 60~% for the first two rounds? Basically making his defense literally triple that of my thrice reincarnated, tier three, Shop Rank 10 gear bearing level 100 squad of 10? Good freaking crap on a stick... >.<;

And alas I am sadly amazed that there is a character I hate worse than Axel now; Fuka. Axel at least had a moment of cool near the end. Fuka has not changed at all. She shtick is still the same and they're riding it so hard it's blocked any form of character development. Not to mention it looks like they'll never explain what her "crime" was. I could make a guess but the fact that they're ignoring what is pretty much the most interesting plot hook in the whole game for the likes of a 10-minute dialog sequence where everyone
channels the spirit bomb ala love power to power up the giant lover operated mecha through the power of prayer while simultaneously bashing God...

Japanese storytelling has officially made my head hurt and I think Disgaea, even by it's amazingly weird standards, just tried to jump the shark...X-x

I admit that Rebecca is awesome, so is Barry, Billy, Carlos.  Where in the hell are these people in the canon?  I wonder if RE6 is going to continue the action oriented over survival horror.  Revelations seems to satisfy my craving but I really want RE6 to return to the horrible tank controls that were RE0-CV.  If RE2 is ever remade (Never happening), I would want the camera system and controls to stay the same, although then people would bitch that it's not like RE5 or vice versa.  Maybe it's best to leave the old games alone and if you want to play RE2 or whatever game, just pop it in and enjoy XD.

Ahh...you poor soul. You apparently missed the preview for RE: ORC.


Capcom wants to change Resi, not take it back to any prior form. Aka; the Resident Evil series is now "Not Left 4 Dead But Really Is".
955  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Square classics NOT hitting PSN today. on: September 23, 2011, 05:53:29 AM
Might have more to do with the fact that I played Cross first; but I always found it to be a better game that Trigger (it's sheer popularity is one of those things I never understood alongside DQ's; must've had to have lived it upon original release I guess). The sheer amount of recruitable characters, the Elements system, the music, the scenery...just all sort of hit my sweet spots. Funny thing is I've never been able to replay it in full for some reason. Might have to do what I did for FF8 and just buckle down and do it once it hits PSN.

*shrugs* Personally, at risk of coming under fire for being too deep in my cave to see the big picture; I think this is a good thing. America (and it's starting to spread outside the borders from what I've heard third hand) is far too much of a litigation culture for my taste. Kids attempting to sue parents, people suing food businesses for either making them "fat" or not warning them hot coffee is hot...it's actually refreshing to see someone say "No, you can't sue us for X."

Also it might actually force consumers to do something useful when they've been legitimately wronged (like the info hack fiasco) aside from running to a lawyer and ultimately causing about as much damage to the company as a gnat on a bull's nose...like maybe...I dunno...actually sticking to a boycott for a change rather than crying "We won't buy!" then doing so once the next shiny comes out?

Just my two coppers anyway.
957  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Fallout New Vegas: DLC worth it? on: September 21, 2011, 12:37:18 PM
Been curious about the DLC for a while. I thought it looked goofy but a bit fun and was going to wait until Lonesome Road hit to start looking into it. Haven't seen any reviews for that particular DLC out yet so I'm wondering if the "conclusion" to the DLC storyline is worth shelling out the $40 to get everything. Does it add anything substantial to the FNV lore/gameplay or is this something I'm just going to burn through once and never look back at?
958  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 21, 2011, 09:00:24 AM
Side note: Anyone notice that NIS is becoming more overtly socio-political in their recent games?

ZHP had some blatant moments where it felt like an after-school special of yesteryear from time to time (the biggest example is the 3-4 minute rant about bullying).

Hyperdimension Neptunia, while I can't remember the specifics, seemed to have some things to say of similar tone (albeit more camouflaged in comedic jabbing) regarding gamers and the industry.

Now you have Disgaea 4...with the "Corrupterment" and very, very obvious references to modern events and mindsets.

Kinda detracts from the games IMO. :-\ I'm almost afraid how preachy the next NIS title will be.

I picked up the Resi 4 port this afternoon; as someone who's only played the PS2 version I think it looks and feels great. Haven't seen any of the supposed slow down and since I don't give a hoot about pixel, poly, or whatever count they use these days I'd call it an A+. It's at least cheaper than rebuying a PS2 and hunting down a copy of it.

About the only thing that's still keeping me from completely locking myself down into that opinion is the very strong possibility that
the man who traveled with Rory and Amy from "Let's Kill Hitler" to now might not be the Doctor.

Which would explain some of the out of characterness of his actions.

To clarify what I'm referring to watch the opening segment of The God Complex then go back and watch the opening comedic sketch of The Eleventh Hour.

Sure it was more of a throw away joke but it's pretty much fact of this Doctor: #11 hates apples.
