JRPG Catch-All

No discussion yet about Disgaea Dimension 2? It's a direct sequel to Disgaea: Hour of Darkness for the PS3. Seems like it'd be right up the alley of you folks.

I haven't finished Disgaea yet. It caught my attention and my first thought was that maybe I'd spend some time trying to "beat" Disgaea 1.

I didn't even know it existed.

I need to play Disgaea 4 first. I wonder how cheap it is now.

I made a thread for it. Not much information atm other than a March 2013 release date in Japan. Of course, the Japanese website had a countdown yesterday and it appears they released a teaser trailer and a bunch of screenshots. Should update the thread.

Supposedly Nippon Ichi is considering making the Dimension series a way to do direct sequels to other numbered Disgaea games. Also, Disgaea 5 is under production.

So much activity by them. Can I get portable La Pucelle Tactics?

This was my same thought. I have all of the Disgaea games but haven't finished any. *sigh*

So due to an influx of Vita games, DSGamer has noted he may not be able to get to Radiant Historia for a while if I send it his way.

As such, I'm opening up the chance for someone to request it. I'll ship it to you free unless the shipping costs are ridiculous. I like the game, but I imagine it will end up collecting dust on my shelf as I get new games and play them. It's not an easy game to go back and replay unless you have 30 hours or more to dedicate.

So in the effort of finding it a good home, I'm willing to pass it off to someone that hasn't played it. As this is an Atlus game I wouldn't be surprised if it's rare by now and possibly expensive to get from someone. I figure I may as well send it to someone that wants to play it, giving it some good use and exposing people to what is a good game.

I already have it, or I'd jump at the chance to borrow it. Sadly, it's behind the Devil Survivor games on my DS pile...

Just specifying that I'm not lending, I'm giving.

I'd take it... if I had a DS. But I don't.

I appreciate the generosity though!

I'd be tempted to grab it if I weren't neck deep in Pokemon White 2 right now. Maybe if it goes around again in a couple of months.

I also have too much to play for it right now, but it has been on my want list for a long time.

How about 'playing it foward' then? After playing send it to another?

I'll jump on a 'play it forward', if someone wants to put it my way. Been on 'the list' for a while By the time it comes around, I'm sure piles will have diminished!

I'd jump on this but a kind GWJer sold me their copy a while back. I'm about 20 hours in :). Hope it goes to a good home.

As it stands there's a lot of "I'd take it later" going on.

The "playing it forward" sounds like what I actually hoped for this game. I feel like we should each sign part of it with a sharpie or something if it manages to go around that much.

If no one wants it now, I'll bite the bullet. If I feel like I won't be able to put in enough time I'll just pass it on.

EDIT**** Posted in wrong thread

Nothing to see here. Move along.

The disgaea games can be fairly quick if you break them. Usually their is mechanic you can exploit that levels your character to a crazy degree. I think I beat the game with a level 300 laharl or something. The boss was 70ish i think...

Sadly enough that is still not strong enough to clear all the side content.

Oh and Phantom Brave is the best of the bunch, I just love that one to bits. Gig and the world eaters is great too though.

Or the cover art? Sign it

Sharpie keeps finding new ways to make fine-point tips, to where they even make "pen" sized items now. Maybe if the signatures were very small and orderly, like in old-fashioned check-out cards in library books.

I would have volunteered to even pay the shipping or something, but I have a gigantic pile of other Atlus games right now.

The Last Story is eight dollars US on amazon right now, If you have any interest its not gonna get any better than this. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007CSF3GO/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?tag=cheapassgam08-20

Deal seems dead already. Shame, not enough people here played the 2012 Game of the Year.

That would have been a crazy deal.

Yeah I had a strange feeling it wouldn't last, but I figured it was mentioning anyways.

I'm beginning to believe that the 3DS localization of Unchained Blades is vaporware, and that makes me a sad panda.

You and me both! It's one I've been really waiting for. Knowing that we have Etrian Odyssey 4 coming lessens the sting, though.

Two random questions. I purchased a DS Lite the other day, encouraged by Ozymandius, in order to play Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. I had forgotten how portable this thing was, having played a PSP and Vita predominantly as my portable the last two years. It's shockingly light and portable compared to what we're dealing with now. Since I'm not in love with the 3DS and have this DS Lite I'm doubling back on the DS library and have a couple of questions.

#1 - How long is DQ IX, roughly? I picked this up the other day for like $5 and decided to play it again. I'm curious what I'm in for, though.

#2 - Did anyone here play Pokemon Black / White? I've heard they have more interesting stories but I'm not sure how true that is. If it's just an interesting story "for a Pokemon game" then I won't touch that game.
