    The reviews give this game around a 8/10 so im wondering what OT thinks of this game?

    I beat valkyria chronicles which was fun, but now i need another RPG to play and this was the only one i could find that got decent reviews :o

    Never played 3, but 1 was fun. It's more of a turn based strat game than an rpg though. It's like chess with a story.

    Its the reason I bought my PS3. Or I should say it was the tipping point for me buying one.

    I love it and pop it in from time to time when I am in the mood.

    Two things I don't like about it

    It really doesn't feel "next gen" and I wish it had an overview map like the DS version does.

    But those are minor points that still for me keeps D3 in my top 5 games for the PS3.

    I've found it intriguing (from what I've seen, never played it) yet I don't know much about it. I DO know that the PS3 doesn't have far enough JRPGs/JRPG-Strategy hybrids, so maybe I'll check this out when I have time :hs: is their a demo on the PSN?

    Got it from Gamefly yesterday. I haven't put it in yet though. I'll put some time in this weekend.

    I admit, I don't own a PS3. But, from what I've read, if you've played Disgaea 1 or 2 it's basically the same in terms of gameplay with a few added tweaks/word changes.

    The penguins are probably Prinnies. Story-wise, they're the souls of humans who did evil deeds in life and go to the Underworld to 'work off' their deeds so they can get into Heaven. Basically everyone in the Underworld uses them for slave labor.

    They say 'dood' a lot, usually ending a sentence with it. And when thrown they explode like a bomb.

    Don't diss the Prinnies dood.

    Nothing like beating the game.

    Then leveling all your guys - Like over 100 people - you can create your own BTW

    Then when all is said and done - you can level all your items and weapons.

    Nothing like going into Item world and leveling your healing potions to max level. lol

    If you like FFT then get this game. Just play it in the dark. Its rather.... um..... My wife gives me shit for playing it. lol.... Its got a weird since of humor dude.

    Why is there $49.99 of DLC for this game? That seems a little overboard... pretty much the cost of the game :rofl:

    Disgaea series is for people that are really into anime or something.

    I attempted 1 & 2 but I won't bother with 3...I'm just not that into full-on japanese style anime. I kinda like a mix style of anime+american animation, kinda like Final fantasy 9's kind of characters. a good mix, without a heavy anime-esque over explanatory story.

    :werd: Me too... WTF happened, PS1 & PS2 were amazing for RPGs, now 360 has more JRPGs than the PS3.

    I couldnt find disgaea 3 in the stores so I started fftactics v1.3 hard type in 1080p. Its pretty insane when the computer can use the exact same tactics as you.

    It's good if you haven't played it before, definitely not a bad game. But for people like me who played the shit out of the other ones, it was nothing new so I decided not to get it.
