^ this is true

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
Code:
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

The writing in this game is freaking horrible.  A couple days ago I went on youtube to see what the character specific endings are like, and they are completely horrid.  Nothing even happens in the endings its just Val+character talking in a room.  

As for Fuka, love her character design to death, but not her personality.  And I refuse to believe Axel has even one cool moment in this game.

I won't claim to know a lot about this case but it seems like there are too many unanswered questions here to just go ahead with the execution (of course now it is too late). 

Those people who recanted their statements from the original trial though...they either lied back in the original trial, or they are lying now.  In either case they are lying at some point and I think that destroys their credibility.

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 did notice that actually, but I don't really mind it either.  ZHP and Disgea 4 have more political references than other NIS games I've played.  ZHP has a whole character dedicated to making fun of america, Disgaea 4 has cam-pain, cabinet, presidents, "are you a demoflat or a rebooblican?", etc...

Just beat it btw (main story anyway).  Nemo's voice is so freaking bad and I hate his character.  The story in this game basically blows, the humor is much lighter than 1 or 3 and suffers from many characters who only seem to have one joke.  Also, not that this is necessarily bad but did anyone else think this game has a really small cast of characters?  other than the 6 main player characters you've got Axel, Netherworld President, Nemo....and that's all I can think of.  Gripes aside, I am still having a lot of fun with the game.  It's still the same fun formula but the new stuff (like giant monster fusions) are cool and I like the upgraded graphics.  and Glorious Hitter is the coolest move


edit:  HD Asagi on PSN is available as DLC.  for free.  (though it seems she won't be usable yet even if you do from what I'm reading on gamefaqs...)
306  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 20, 2011, 02:16:48 PM
I haven't been having SP problems with Desco but it may be because of equipment/head of cabinet most of the time/being careful not to boost her specials too high that I don't have SP to use  them well.  there's a lot of factors.  True Godly weapon is so good though I've basically just been nuking everthing with it since I got it

Val, Fuka, Desco, and Emizel are doing almost all the damage for my party.  I use fenrich but he usually does awful damage unless he's standing next to Val.  I neglect vulcanus horribly (I just cast braveheart with her most of hte time lol).  I am trying to level up some classes as I go but they don't see much action.  I'm planning to focus on that more during postgame stuff
307  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 20, 2011, 02:03:17 PM
I'm still not on post game either.

P.S.  Desco is broke

are the anime cutscenes still in this game?
309  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Epic JRPGs for PS3/360 on: September 19, 2011, 09:29:03 PM
You're screwed.

I'm not very fond of season 2.  What did you like about Suou?  I'm under the impression a lot of people don't like her and I can understand why cause I thought she was pretty useless.  I don't think she actually does much of anything.  Then there's all the loli haters who hate her cause of that...but whatever...
311  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 15, 2011, 12:50:13 PM
Made it partyway through Ch. 6 today. I hate Axel. Hated him in 2, hated him in cameo in 3, hate him now. I fail to see how this "thing" survived as a concept; let alone as such a popular "character" as he seems to be.

+ 1 for Axel hate
312  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 13, 2011, 10:10:47 PM
I just got vulcanus.  I'm on chapter 6 I guess?  Feels like I have a lot of story characters compared to the other games for being this far in

As for the difficulty, I ran into a bit of a snag against one of the very early bosses but other than that any grinding I've done has been because I wanted to, not because I needed to (and I really haven't been grinding a lot).  The problem was mostly my equipment not my level up.  I think a big reason why I'm not having trouble is that I'm making sure to upgrade the shop and only buying equipment for my best few characters.  The others have been mostly fodder to take hits for me and such and get equiped with any crap I pick up from stage reward bonuses.  The story maps seem better set up than they were in 3.

Also, I like the dub for the most part and I've been playing with it (I played 3 in japanese btw).  Chief of Bureau sounds like a man and I think a lot of the class voices are crap (witch/succubus/archer/etc).  The story characters that you hear talking most of the time are well voiced though IMO.  
313  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: September 06, 2011, 07:52:42 PM
It looks like Disgaea 4 has almost the same humor level as Disgaea 2 has. Disgaea 1 has a high humor level like Disgaea 3. However, like Disgaea 2, Disgaea 4 has the same dramatic feeling to it. MOREOVER, its opening theme is as beautiful as Disgaea 2's.

I see a pattern here.

exactly what I didn't want to hear.  oh well I should be getting it soon

Well, it's official; NISA has taught me never to buy games from anyone other than Gamestop ever again.

I thought I read that wrong at first.  Usually I see people say they AREN'T buying from gamestop again (and I'm one of those).
314  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: August 30, 2011, 08:44:17 PM
I'm more concerned about the story/humor than the gameplay.  Disgaea 2 fell really flat with me in that category, partly cause the main characters didn't have funny personalities
315  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 on: August 30, 2011, 03:36:40 PM
I've got it pre-ordered on amazon.  Should be fun

fuuka is the best
