I don't think it's fanservice anymore at that point, it's just ecchi.  It is like calling a violent death scene in God of War fanservice.  I'm really just complaining about the use of a term though, so it's not all that important.

I don't think you should call it fanservice if it is a primary draw/selling point of the game like in the case of Agarest war.  The term doesn't really fit imo.  I think of fanservice as a panty shot/shower/bath scene in an otherwise non-ecchi game.

Well...I've gotten to the 4th round a couple times.  only the first round has snipers right?  I generally try to kill the guy in the turret and save it for later, then when the walkers come in the second round I kill the pilots and save the walkers for the big guys that show up in round 4.  Though it seems I can only manage to kill one big enemy with the walker before the walker gets destroyed.  Come to think of it I guess I should focus on getting in the other one quickly afterward and not get distracted into fighting normally.  Some notable ways I've died...

- got into the turret for the start of phase 3 where the helicopter bot things come in, got shot/hit from both sides and died instantly (this happened twice, one of the times i got rammed by one of those "ball" enemies from one side).  I got a false lead because the very first time I tried this it worked pretty well, so I thought it was a good idea
- overheated, something shot a nuke at me and i couldn't intercept or avoid it due to the overheat
- caught between a kamikaze soldier and a grenade behind me, i got exploded

I've only beaten challenge 1.  I'm so bad at this game, I keep getting 1 shotted in challenge 2 but it's always for a different reason >_>

I hated how awkward the Agarest "love making" scenes were.  The frame rate on the wedding gown was horrible, completely ruining a "touching" moment with sloppy animation.  Then it takes you to the bed scene where sometimes the blanket around the girls' bums flaps around like they farted.  The glitter feels like a creepy magical-girl-metaphor for an orgasm.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aa_Qu9ztweU  <-- case in point

That was pretty bad yeah...it does kinda look like she farted with the way the blanket is fluttering, lol.  Camera looked like it had ADD during the wedding dress part, I can't fathom why it focused on the flowers in her hand at one point.

As prettymuch everyone else said, PSP is the best choice overall.  I would mention though that if you have an older model DS that can play GBA games there are a lot of good GBA RPGs you can play on it.

Did anyone here beat all the challenges? The only one I haven't managed to beat yet is 4. I bought the weapon dlc. It's nice to have more options in your arsenal, gives it more replay value.

well if you beat challenge 4 it should unlock challenge 6 which is the hardest one.  I saw my brother doing it and it was pretty crazy

I beat the game on normal mode dying like 70times (lol) I'll try the challenges soon

the way you get the dangerama costume is you keep attacking darkdeath the very first time you fight him, you'll get the first special ending, credits will roll (again!) and then you'll get dangerama costume.  generally it seems like if you want to make the credits roll in any given chapter on newgame+ you just keep attacking darkdeath till he dies, if you want to continue with the game just run away since it causes you to lose instantly

so when I first beat the game, it goes to new game+, beat darkdeath immediately, credits roll again lol.  that ending is kinda amusing but the next 2 or 3 i did were very lame.  as you said though, that's to be expected.  I really liked the main ending though, darkdeath evilman is now one of my favorite characters in the game haha

you have a favorite character?
414  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: were you a good RPGfan this year? Xmas wishlist. on: November 22, 2010, 12:19:16 AM
I want Golden Sun DD and Devil Survivor (tho that came out last year).  I prettymuch bought everything else I wanted that came out this fall.

Now I just need to buy my brother a copy of Kirby's Epic Yarn for Christmas so I can play it on his Wii!!!
415  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Z.H.P: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman on: November 22, 2010, 12:10:47 AM
you get the dangerama costume too?  I've gotten a few of the endings but it seems like most of them are kinda lame.  I'm still gonna try to do as many as I can though.  It is a bit of a pain that you can't just save and reload like in other games to see multiple endings (not without penalties anyway) but at least it doens't take TOO long to go through the dungeons when you're really strong. 

btw i saw a topic on gamefaqs about costumes affecting a wide range of different stats, but me and several others have remarked that we see no difference at all other than elemental resistances.  for example etranger seems to have no stat changes at all, while dangerama just has -20 resistance to all elements

I started playing this yesterday and I really like it.  The dialogue is so awesome.  It's great because it doesn't seem to take itself too seriously.  The old guy cracks me up with his retarded lines.

ZHP: Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman is set in modern times but it is a very cartoony world with superheroes and stuff.  I know you said you're tired of Disgaea (or just the setting, not sure which) but it really isn't that similar beyond the graphics style and humor in the game.   
418  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Z.H.P: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman on: November 21, 2010, 02:19:29 PM
Yeah I've heard about the zombie and mirror thing on gamefaqs but I haven't tried it yet, I really should.  I'm kinda playing multiple games at once (including etrian odyssey 3 which is also a huge time sink) so I haven't put as much time into it as I could have.  I've only beaten 2 dengeki dungeons and my total level is barely over 1000.  I agree about the power jump from floor 59 to 60 of that dungeon is just messed up though.  the difficulty "curve" becomes a 90 degree angle

also I use Etranger costume =D

To me, the shift to handhelds is one of the best things that could have happened to RPGs. The fact that handheld RPGs require less financial investment - and therefore leave developers free to take risks - is why, IMO, the best handheld RPGs this gen are better, fresher. and more interesting than their console counterparts from either the East or the West.

Etrian Odyssey, for example, is the kind of game that would never have seen the light of day without the handheld market, yet I can think of no RPG on consoles this gen that I found more enjoyable or inspiring.

I totally agree with this.  It really saves the wallet too when new games are retailing for $30-40 (usually 30) rather than $60.  This year I've gotten games like Infinite Space, Etrian Odyssey 3, Ys Seven, ZHP, etc.  My favorite RPG series this decade is the very innovative Dept. Heaven series from Sting, and that is on portables.  Basically I don't see the problem.  Sure most JRPGs are going to uncreative and lame, but most of any genre is going to be that way.  Developers are making JRPGs for portables because it's less expensive to make as others have said.  It's not even just a matter of competing with WRPGs on the home consoles, I think FF series is a problem too.  Everyone is just gonna buy FF because everyone knows what it is already and they always have crazy graphics, they aren't going to be nearly as inclined to buy a totally new jrpg with mediocre graphics.  Most RPG developers aren't gonna have the funds to do crazy graphics though.  

JRPG (God I hate having to call them that)

agree with that too
420  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Linear and simple RPGs on: November 21, 2010, 08:23:50 AM
I agree with the people who said Grandia II, Riviera, and Hexyz Force.  Grandia II is by far the most linear, as you really can't change ANYTHING story related in any way and there are barely any side quests or choices of any kind.  At least Rivera and Hezyz Force have different endings you can get.  I like Rivera the best but it's not as simple as Grandia or Hexyz, mostly just because it plays a lot less traditionally than those 2 games.
