This is possibly the most accessible incarnation to date, and if you've overlooked Disgaea until now, give this one a shot.
than too flop :D PS3 FTW!
PS3 RPGs fail this gen thus far. I can't believe I'm saying that as a former spoiled PS2 RPG player, but the 360 is so much better for the genre.
thats debatable Tales gor 7.25 from GI. They gave Disagea 8.25 so its debatable However both are good games
I'll go 1up thank you very much. EBgames mag of choice has nothing on the likes of 1up/IGN/Gamespot for viability.
GI is the biggest gaming mag in USA 1up is not as big as GI IGN is the most reliable alongside Gamepro Gamespot has gone astray
If you're going to go so far as to say that IGN/1up/Gamespot are respectable RPG Guy, then I suppose the 8.2 IGN score is wrong? Check Game Informer's scores, they're not absurd by any means.
ANd where's Disgaea's review to compare to? Your comment fails. I mean, that's the point of what I'm talking about here isn't it? Once IGN gives Disgaea 7.5, what then?
i am pretty sure this is the only (rpg outside of japan) exclusive to the ps3. and since when does B- = F. what school did u go to? and RPGs are not mainstream. especially SRPGs buddy. so this is a good score imo. edit: how many RPGs have u played on the ps3 so far anyways? seeing as they all fail. ur name fails credibility thus far. rpgguy. and now ur categorizing me. check my comment history 8 is not failing. get over it. edit: ign gave folklore a 9 buddy http://ps3.ign.com/articles...
Folklore was an RPG exclusive (of sorts), it failed to score as high as 360 RPGs through meta. And let's not forget everyone's favorite Untold Legends! PS3 = Fail for RPGs this gen. If you PS3 fanboys can come out and say Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon and Tales fail for averaging 8/10, what does this review say about what you got? Check the threads people, freaking hypocrites.
Didn't Blue Dragon get like a 7 close to a 6? It doesn't matter if it did or didn't. Too bad these so called good RPG's on the 360 aren't pushing any consoles. Go crawl back into your little hole. TGSI
Makes it easier for you to sleep at night? You go crawl back into your hole and watch more freaking Gilmore Girls.
OH MIO DIO! I IZ CRYING! Sorry, but you're just making yourself look like a complete idiot. You obviously know nothing. TGSI
Poor guy, hes traumatized that his Rpgs dont sell in the RROD box.
you do know that sells for blue dragon, lost Od., and others are bearly making less the 3/4 a mill or lower... which are pretty bad sales. And for god sakes people, stop thinking that JRPG's rule the market in the US... its always been japan that jrpg's make the most money. And it wont sell as good here, not unless theres a final fantasy before the title(for US and japan)... I mean seriously only 10-15% people in the states like jrpgs and the others are in to Fps, wrpg, Action, Action/Adventure, platformers, and rts.
@RPG GUY if the 360 is so much better for RPGs, then why is it everytime a high profiled jprg comes out, it moves 360s in japan for like a week, and then goes back to last place....this has happended with all the 360s rpgs
Ps3 is getting almost all of your 360 rpg so no problem here, go and ask M$ to buy disgaea 3
I don't know if this would of degenerated into this e-peen comparison if the first asswad commentor didn't take a stab at Too Human which is a completely different game. To all sacks going on about RROD and not moving consoles the PS3 RPG's aren't moving consoles either. The difference being is if you own a 360 you actually have a choice of good RPG's to choose from while on the PS3 you are limited. Like RPG Guy said the 360 is the best next-gen console for RPG's.
And yet it got outsold by the PS3. Microsoft had those rpg's and yet it didn't do a damn thing. I wouldn't lay the crown on Microsoft's head yet if I were you.
Disagea is not RPG. Silly XBOT, Games is for PS3. You get Too Flop.
Would YOU trust a system that has a 10% failure rate? $50 for XBL? Lame Customer Service? No AAA titles since 2007? Why would someone want to buy a system with that many flaws? THAT'S why I'm getting a PS3 and NOT a 360. -_-
This game is looking fun. SRPGs are growing on me. I dont know if anyone played Vandal Hearts, but that was the best SRPG I have played. I am hoping to give this one a try, but it is going to be hard with Socom coming up.
"Vandal Hearts" Wonderful game. Never played the follow up.
The follow up was horrible because of one thing: You pick a characters actions all at one (move and attack) but before he does them, the comp gets to do the same thing. Then both characters move at the same time. This means that your character will move to attack, but the character you attack will move somewhere else, making you swing at nothing... It was the dumbest gameplay ever.
Vandal Hearts was awesome. Ash in Champion class = Epic
Vandal Hearts 1 & 2 had their own separate charms. VH1 was far more strategic and punishing à-la Fire Emblem, whereas VH2 was more of a proof of concept when it came to simultaneous turned SRPGs. In fact, I found myself planning out things twice as much when playing VH2 than VH1, especially due to the sometimes random nature of enemy movements in the same situations. In fact, I'm sure a lot of people never knew that Konami announced Vandal Hearts DS a while ago. It's been since canceled, but I'll be damned if they never make another VH game again. Especially after how they ended VH2...
If the previous games are anything to go by. For sRPG gamers worldwide. This game is the BIGGEST band for the BUCK, and at $50 retail?! I'll support that.
Yea I read about how many extras there were. That is incredible for a SRPG. Usually it is very linear.
RPG GUY? more like 360 GUY anyway i just went to my gamestop today and they listed Disgea 3 for only $49 i was gona get it, bt i got Ninja gaiden sigma instead Greatest hits. and Socom confrontation is coming up so i won't have time for RPG. the only RPG im going to play is of course Final fantasy series.
RPG guys shut up co'z u stink like all the xbots and you should change your name to Xbots Guy.
Wow! You sure showed him! pft..
LoL i could get the chance to pick up my copy around 30 minutes ago and I can't wait until Thursday after college to play it ^__^. BYE BYE SOCIAL LIFE, Welcome Disgaea 3 ^__^
Gonna buy my copy from Ebay yes sir i am.
im a ps3 fan i dont even own a 360 and never will but i think he has a point.. if any of you guys wanna buy a console for rpg ATM then i guess the 360 is better.. its as simple as that
this game has like 400 hours of game play i heard someone say before or was 100hours of game play ether way i love the Manga comic art style as i like to call it of the graphics i will be buying my copy from Ebay cause i live in the UK. guys RPG GUY took the piss out of this game saying it was crap because of PS2 graphics. what he doesn't understand that the art style is Manga Japan and USA and UK love Manga this game will sale big.
"if you've overlooked Disgaea until now, then give this one a shot" will do
crappy review. this game is obviously not lower than 7.5/10 by anyones scale, especially considering the discount
I spent 150 hours on Disgaea 2 (which pales in comparison to some people) and that alone made me purchase Disgaea 3. Cant wait to get off work to start part 3. Tales and Disgaea are different games...I will get Tales after I am done with Disgaea but itll probably be out for the PS3 by then with some bonus content.
So yeah, pretty much PS2 graphics but this time in HD right? whine whine whine but at a PS2 retail price instead of "next gen-ish" its hard to complain. Im tempted....
I ask you guys this.. Do you think they gave it a proper review? Do you think the review score is deserved? Yes = Agree No = Disagree
no, this score deserves higher. Disgaea has always been the best SRPG around. This one so far is the best. I love the first two, but IMO a little hard. Not to far into this one, but so far they have fixed it. Now you can level up your characters stats instead of weapons. I hated this review. It hardly mentioned anything that they added. Come one the best SRPG around with a ps2 price tag with 300 playable hours. IF your a fan of J rpgs then you can't deny it. If you hate Japanese style stay away, its filled with that good stuff :)
I got it :D and I'm loving it!! On 4 hours w00t.
Anything more extreme than the previous ones? Damage? Spells? Let us know!! Or let me know!!
Well by that logic 360 fails for RPGs as well. Not a single JRPG on the 360 has broken the 80% barrier on metacritic or gamerankings. On top of that no JRPG this generation has come anywhere close to selling a million copies worldwide. Blue dragon scored a 79 on metacritic Lost Odyssey scored a 78 Eternal Sonata scored a 79 Folklore scored a 75 In my oppinion none of those scores are anything to brag about, so coming to the Playstation section and trumpeting "360 is the home of RPGs this gen" only makes you look insecure
JRPG's have never scored well outside of Japan and struggle for appeal as well. I think only the FF series has managed to break out of that. You can't argue that the 360 has more RPG's regardless of how they score.
Again almost every RPG on the 360 is going to be on the PS3 :eternal sonata, tales of vesperia, the ones from square i think they are confirmed already, the only thing is you get is the 6 month worth of bugs in all of those while the ps3 get the definitive version of each
1. Star Ocean (possibly timed) 2. Infinite Undiscovery 3. Tales of Vesperia 4. Last Remnant (timed) 5. Lost Odyssey 6. Final Fantasy XIII vs. 1. Valkyria Chronicles 2. Final Fantasy Versus XIII 3. Final Fantasy XIII 4. White Knight Chronicles 5. Eternal Sonata (multiplatform) 6. Last Remnant Crab, I still wouldn't crown the 360. ...AND THE BOTS DISAGREE WITH LOGIC!
Well in all fairness 360 currently has more RPGs in their library, but by a very slim margin. When you take into account that Star Ocean was never announced as a 360 exclusive, and due to Tales poor sales in Japan, we can all but guarantee that atleast at some point there will be a Playstation 3 release in Japan the lists become a lot more comparable. If one were to count exclusive JRPGs the tally would be something like Tales of Vesperia (360) Infinite Undiscovery (360) Lost Odyssey (360) Blue Dragon (360) and Disgaea 3 (PS3) Valkyria Chronicles (PS3) Folklore (PS3) White Knight Chronicles (PS3) I chose to exclude Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Star Ocean 4, because at this point I could see either one of them becoming multi platform
Yes sir, I have overlooked Disgaea until now, and I am giving this one a shot. Should be coming in the mail soon ^^
Disgaea 3: presence of flop
Alan Wait: Presence of a Flop and a Delay.
Alan Wake's coming to PS3. It will look better on PS3. It will play better on PS3 The 360 version will take 4 discs. The average insults are getting old. You have to change things up once in a while. Like what I just did ^__^
But I'm sure some strategy fans dismiss the series for its low-res visuals damn it. I knew overly critical reviewers were going to fry it for this. Its part of the charm of the whole game. I don't care, I got it and played it, and its awesome. Better than 2 so far. Seriously, if you like tatics games there is none bigger than more deep than this. However the game is light hearted which rocks, but it might be too much for people without a sense of humor or up tight. lol Just don't go by the reviews scores!!!!
Just because we are in this so called HD gaming era, doesn't mean every game HAS to be HD. I would love a Disgaea game in HD, but it's not essential to the series at all - Plus moving everything to HD would obviously mean a longer development time (or features cut) and a higher price point. Disgaea is the perfect SRPG and anyone who passes on this game because of the visuals is very foolish. Europe release is supposedly Q1 2009; but there's plenty of sites that do imports.
That's not necessarily true. They could give the sprites HD detail and make them flow far more easily on the screen. Then again, that jump might destroy the charm of Disgaea. It would take some artistic prowess to keep things in the same style all the while upping the graphical detail.
