Disgaea 3 on the Vita is very good. I stopped playing since I got a bit overwhelmed by everything you could do that game....
As long as you aren't trying to do the very very end game content you can ignore a number of mechanics in the game and get by just fine... aka just because they are there you don't have to use them :p

I didn't bother figuring out how to use innocents properly for the longest time lol.

If you are willing to devote the time and energy to disgaea playing them in order isn't a bad idea (infinite comes sometime after 1... can't recall if the 2 cast is in it at all) just... don't be crazy and go for a 100% :p

and yeah the art is a little weird, but there really isn't another srpg out there that goes to the crazy power levels that disgaea does... the really nice part about the disgaea series is that you always feel like you are getting more powerful.
Yeah I'm aware the games can be time-sinks (even moreso than most tactical RPGs), I don't want to go overboard unless I end up falling in love with the game or something.

this second picture makes more sense with your statements then the cookies you originally had :p

I am jelly for the record... of the doodle and the fact that you were there :p
I was having issues uploading on photobucket lol so I had to scramble to upload to imgur. :p

I was confused at first before you changed the picture.

I thought he baked you some evil cookies.
Funny enough, the cookies are pink and white, so it did kinda work... :p

1 and 4 are the best games if you want to streamline things a bit.

And here's my pick-up from the NISA event this evening:


Because Monokuma is already on the cover, Mr. Terasawa normally wouldn't draw him. He made an exception for mine lol.
dude thats so awesome congrats!

It's a shame they're not doing the Hyperdimension Neptunia Vita games.
Hopefully later, since its a FANTASTIC remake as fixes all the issues with the first game, gameplay wise and loading times are insanely fast. Im looking forward to the next title in march? I think it was.

Im so annoyed at NISA right now.

Each Disgaea I get preordered for PS3, in the limited edition version with all the art books and models.
I play for a bit and realise I don't have the time.
Then the release the psp or Vita versions. I buy and olay the hell out of it...

Damn it Ill double dip but wish they would just release them on the Vita. Its a perfect fit

I'm a little wary of IF doing Re;Birth and there are hints on the NISA forums that they might....

Really want a pretty physical copy, too.

it's not like it's a big secret that a few years after the console release they do a handheld version (about 3 years actually)

it's also not like it's a barebones port that isn't worth it if you bought the console version. it has extra content plus all of the dlc (assuming you didn't already buy the dlc which you likely didn't given you didn't have time)

the dlc itself is more expensive than the cost of entry on the vita... so it's all good :p

what they really need to do is work on making the saves cross platform so you don't have to restart when you move to the vita.

At XSEED, they sound pretty busy, but did hint that announcements and release dates for things like Ragnarok Odyssey Ace SHOULD be coming shortly... Not sure if it'll be a mass release or one-by-one.

Aksys normally release stuff one-by-one and just announced Xblaze this week. Atlus doesn't have an event, but sometimes shares a couple things at E3. Hopefully closer to April when Conception is close they will announce something. Probably just the Persona titles, but they've been surprising lately.

Ash thanks, someone mentioned yesterday and I think they were mistaken that atlus were going to make an announcement with there next email with something I regards to eu

Oh and this was our post-event present:
i'd be slightly jealous but I am going to get one of those for free (I find chibi things dumb in general and thus never include them when determining a value of a collectors edition) when I spend $75 to get a hard cover art book, a sound track, and a nicer box than the basic version of Witch...

I still don't know why I am doing that when I have a $20 preorder on amazon for the normal version................. I suppose it's because I want a complete collection of NisA LE still ><;

We already know that XSEED is localizing Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, Akiba's Trip 2 and that PSP otomege from their teaser reveal a while back. I wouldn't really expect any other announcement from them for a while other than details on the aforementioned games.

NISA sure has some of the best LEs around! I managed to accomplish getting all of them (best decision I ever made), but the toughest to find was the Mana Khemia figure w/box. I got SUPER lucky finding that portion of the LE!

actually I just have a complete collection for psp/ps3 and psv... I am lacking a few of the ps2 ones (I was to poor :( )

and to be fair my ps3 collection isn't completely complete...
I couldn't resist selling my neptunia 1 cards.... in general if you offer me $65 for a preorder bonus... I will give it to you lol.

but yeah I love NisA's LE and will continue to get them all for the forseeable future....
I am really really really hoping the next mugan souls game is digital only though so I can ignore it instead of wasting money on a LE I won't even play (yes I know I am stupid, but both my wife and I can't resist lol)

My LEs and bonus items mean too much to me. The hunt took forever to get them all and they are pretty priceless to me.

As for Mugen Souls Z, they never did say off the bat like with Arcadia that it would be DD, so I'm guessing there will be a retail release. An LE though? I'm honestly not sure...

danganronpa 2, mugen souls z, battle princess of arcadia, fairy fencer f, and disgaea 4 vita

and they're all slated for fall 2014 or earlier.
tHANKS i'LL GIVE Arcadia and Fairy Fencer a look and see if they'd interest me unless their designs are the generic moesluts and loliwhore that's been plaguing 70% of japanese games this gen.

EDIT: Ayup neither game have any interesting character designs, but will consider getting Disgaea 4 Vita.

1 and 4 are the best games if you want to streamline things a bit.
I'd have to say that 3 Portable is the most streamlined actually. At least if we're talking about easiest to go from start of game to beating the post game.

1 is the simplest but it's postgame is hardly what I'd called streamlined (except maybe compared to the PS2 version of 2, which added 100 extra potential levels onto items but gave you almost no way of getting them and the sheer insanity of the land of carnage map) since there's no real shortcuts, its all about the slog)

For 4 the way dropouts spawn, difficulty in getting to Land of Carnage, and the interrogation system mainly being freaking annoying (making it harder to get a Puppy Paw Stick (and the slightly reduced PPS steal rate in 4 make it more tedious than 3 as well. I'd probably say 4 is the better game overall mechanically (though it's HQ system is overcomplicated) but its definitely more tedious to finish than 3 Portable.

Very good event for Vita :D
I just have my doubts on the appeal of the Neptunia PP game, personally i would have skipped it and passed directly to Rebirth 1.

I personally think it's great we're getting a game that's similar to The iDOLM@STER here! I've always wanted to play one, and since the only English ones out now are those way-too-expensive iOS ports of the PSP games well... I'll settle for this!

I do enjoy the Neptunia franchise though, so it'll be fun seeing the four CPUs in a different sort of gameplay setting.

I am the exact same way. The Disgaea games are much more manageable to play on portable systems anyway.

I really want those neptunia vita games but Disgaea 4 (the best one) will do.


Time for Vita to feel the power of SARDINES!

Personally I didnt like the game at all, which was heartbreaking considering how long I had waited for the damned thing to come out. Got the LE too of it... D: Didnt sell it since I still like the art, but do not want to go back and play the game at all due to the mechanics and design aspects.

I don't care that I've already put in 300 hours in Disgaea 4. Can't wait for those awesome sprites.
This platinum image is way better than the PS3 version.

It's probably Disgaea 5 or Asagi finally gets a game.
Asagi's game was announced last year alongside D4: Return. But hit a major roadblock when D4's director and many of its staff left NI as they were apparently working on it at the time. So, at last check the project was basically on hold.
