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?!
