Disgaea games are really fun. I think I have a copy of 2, 3, and 4. I think I even bought a copy of 1 and 2 for PSP. I have never finished one of them.

I only really loved the first one, I forced myself through the second and never got too far in the third. I heard 4th was closer to first, so I may check it out one day.

The Oath in Felghana is quite similar to Ark of Napishtim since they both use the same game engine. Seven is a bit different since you control several characters at once and it also contains a lot more dialogue.

Felghana is closer to VI as archnemesis says.

You should know though that if we are talking about the PSP versions, Oath is far far superior to Ark.

Would be awesome to see Vita get PS2 classics and have a large increase in the number of those. Could make for a cool E3 announcement. I know we still need to get PS1 games on it, so it seems like a dream far off.

I think Sony said they have no plans to make PS2 titles compatible.
Hopefully we see loads of HD remakes though.

You sir are my new best friend. Ive been arguing for awhile now that this is exactly something that Sony will do. Look at how successful PS1 games on PSN has been and how Sony was able to have them playable on PSP. Then a few months before Vitas launch, they introduce PS2 classics on PSN? Only a matter of time.

And Im sure youve heard that Digital Devil Saga is now up on EU PSN? Imagine playing that on the go on a Vita?

Great list. I'm currently going through Lunar on my Vita at the moment and I very much agree with what you've written. It gets a hard time, but it is still an amazing game, and it is by far the most convenient way to get the game in the UK. The colours look much richer on the Vita's screen too.

I'm hoping to get through quite a bit of this list until the first Vita game I want comes out (Gravity Rush). Gutted I missed out on Brave Story before it was pulled from the store though. I'd love to see Square-Enix get around to putting Star Ocean 1 & 2 on as well.

It hurts to know that it may never happen, though Sony saying no plans could very well mean they are planning to use it as a big announcement and don't want it to lose impact.

There would honestly be no logical reason not to do it, the PS3 is clearly running those PS2 games purely through software emulation, they should be able to do it for Vita as well. I mean the CPU power difference is there, but I still expect it's more than possible.

Maybe Type-0 is coming and Sony want them to hold off Crisis Core till that's had room, or maybe they don't care all that much.

I dunno, the Vita apparently can't even run an Xbox game at full speed, so I've no hope for PS2 games!

What? They are build on completely different architecture so If your talking about emulation then duh, It would take a lot of processing power. I also haven't heard of a single Xbox game that has been ported and played on the Vita, but if it was it could be easily tweaked in order to run.

These are the games I am planning on playing, tried Tales of Eternia and Lunar before and did not like either game. I have already played the other PS1 Final Fantasy games before, and VIII is the only one I have yet to play. I am quite disappointed that other PS1 Classics are not on the PAL store, such as Suikoden, Chrono Cross and Xenogears.

But that's a port of the PS3 version, not the Xbox version. And seemingly a rushed one at that.

Lunar PSP is hounded on by die hard fans who for some inexplicable reason love the original VO of the PS1 version. I thought the original VO was like listening to nails scraping on chalkboards. They cannot act their way out of a paperbag. Granted, the PSP cast is far from stellar, but at least it doesn't want me to physically murder the actors.

And the changes in text are fine. Lunar isn't the Holy Bible.

Puzzle Quest is 4.79 (bargain)
WKC Origins is the princely sum of 21.99, which is practically a hate crime.

As for Newsom, I'm going to see her live twice in two weeks, and I saw someone else with her avatar earlier, I couldn't help myself, even if Person of Interest is entertaining.

EDIT: By the way UKers, FF1 seems to be a pricing error, the series was on sale a month or so back and FF1's price hasn't gone back up, but the rest have. If you care, get it now.

Muchas gracias!

As for Newsom, I have a ton of respect for her, but it would be a toss-up between her voice and the old PS1 cast of Lunar as to whom I'd rather listen to :p

Also, re: Lunar PSP- I'm fine with the writing.

It's the game that's bad. Horrible use of music(it fades in and out at EVERY scene change), pathetically easy combat, and everything from the PS1 version is condensed to non-existent world maps and dungeons, which were already condensed from the Sega CD version originally.


The new voice work sounded fine, too. If you have absolutely no other way to experience Lunar, you could do worse than Harmony.

But I'd say just buy a Sega CD and the original. It'd be cheaper(may vary), and definitely more fun.

I forgot about the music fading - that was somewhat annoying. But the new music is excellent so I guess I wasn't as bummed about it. And yeah, the combat was easy, but honestly I don't remember the PS1 version being hard either? And I didn't even notice the lack of a world map for some reason. But I get what you mean.

From a quick look, it goes much higher for any other version considering it never got a European release on anything but PSP.
Edit: Was meant as an edit to my original post, oh well should have mentioned PAL land.

Look, it's really not as dire as those two are saying. It's a charming, enjoyable game. If you've never played a Lunar there's no reason why you shouldn't pick it up. Here's its 80/100 metacritic score: http://www.metacritic.com/game/psp/l...r-star-harmony (not that I usually base things on metacritic, natch)

Anyhow, if you can try it via the PS3 and report back, it would be appreciated!

I can confirm that it DOES NOT work with the US version of PSP2. Seems bizarre to me that the Euro version works but the US version doesn't.
