You know, Disgaea DS has probably been my best game purchase in a long time.  I prefer many aspects of Final Fantasy Tactics, but Disgaea destroys it on the grounds of replay value.  I’ve sunk a lot of time into Disgaea in little chunks.  There is so much to fiddle with.  I mean, you can go into your gear and fight monsters to level up your weapons.  It’s practically another game unto itself. 

I found a cheap copy of Disgaea 2 while out and about one day.  I wouldn’t normally buy an old PS2 game, but I was afraid that they would never make it for a handheld, and didn’t want to miss out.  Of course now that I’ve spent money on the PS2 version I’ve practically guaranteed a DS release by using the universe’s innate desire to screw people over.  Heh heh heh, I’ve got you this time universe.

I have a little collection of NIS games that I bought for the same reason and never played; Phantom Brave, La Pucelle Tactics, and now Disgaea 2.  Of course I unlocked Prier from LP Tactics in Disgaea, so now I’m curious to know how she went from human to human/demon.  I also want to track down a copy of Makai Kingdom.  One of the guys from that is a boss in Disgaea DS, so I want to see what that’s all about.  Grim Grimoire seems to have the same artist as the other, so I need to find out about that as well…  All of these games are probably hard to find now that I’ve come late to the party.  Still, something to shoot for, I guess. 

There’s some kind of Prinny game for the PSP apparently, but I’m not even sure if it got an American release.  I only know it exists from glancing at a pic on Amazon.  Still, if it’s related to the Disgaea series then I’ll need to at least look into what it is at some point.  Prinnies are fun…  Dood. 

I know there’s a Disgaea 3 for the PS3 as well, but that’s so far out of my reach there’s no point even speculating about getting it.  Perhaps some kind game developer will downgrade it to a more affordable system, so that pathetic wretches, like myself, can play it. 

Wii owners are getting that stripped down Dead Rising game soon.  There’s hope right?  Right?!
