Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories - Gardening In Hell is Hard

Especially when people keep DROPPING STARS ONTO YOUR FLOWERS!

Watch Video

6 minutes, and nothing happens. A slow roller, apparently.

You know, the first thing I would do as Overlord is pass a law saying no one can crash meteorites into my house or lawn (except for me). It just seems like the best thing to do.

Also, I don't know who told JRPG makers that they could simulate a shirt with a band of cloth across the breasts and some armbands, but I wish they'd stop.

Yeah I don't think the meteorite transport system is exactly viable.

Someone should've told the Little Prince from Planet B-6-12 that. (Bonus points if you remember THAT reference!)

God, I almost couldn't finish watching that, the in game voices were so grating

Wow the English VA's for Disgaea aren't very good. I've only ever used the Japanese ones.

Also, this is Disgaea D2 not Disgaea 2.

I'm guessing the flower turns out to be the end boss or something?

Damnit. I just got stock in Meteoritravel Inc. It seemed like such a good idea on paper!

Except the Little Prince used comets, not meteors. Comets are much more viable.

This is Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness.

Cursed Memories is another Disgaea game altogether.

Although they're both "2" games, so I can understand the mix up.

I agree with the guy above me, please correct the title Graham, as it is atually "Disgaea D2: A Brighter darkness". Also you also might want to change the thumbnail on the homepage to this episode, as it actually uses a picture from "Disgaea 2 Cursed Memories".

I thought that something was off. I hadn't played either of them yet so I was a bit confused

Its already been mentioned but this is for Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness which was a sequel to the original game of the series

I'm nuts for JRPGs and all, but HOW is this **** popular? Atelier (limited as it is) feels like Persona quality compared to this. Maybe the gameplay salvages it. Being an SRPG, I'll never know.

I feel dirty watching this.

So children (they look to be at most young teenagers) talk about flower planting, acting like kinder-gardeners AND there's a girl wearing practically S&M clothes...who the hell is this game for!?

I thought it was going to be a reference to this but since I don't see B-6-12 anywhere on there, I guess I don't get those points.
...wait, it does refer to that! Just to the original, not the spoof. I never knew that was its name! I just thought it was "random asteroid" or something.

"I don't care how bi they are, boots are not pants!"

Cracked me up. I want that on a T-shirt or something.

It most definitely does. Besides the large amount of classes you can play as and the large amount of customization, the lv. cap in these games is 9999. And you can go FAR FAR beyond that through constantly reincarnating your characters.

Plus, the stories and characters are pretty humorous IMO. Of course, it is an acquired taste I'll admit.

I love Disgaea, nuff said.

If you're still unsure, I would recommend HCBailly's Let's Play of the PSP remake of the original. He's considerate enough to edit out any level-grinding (which gets pretty funny during the post-game), and he's overall pretty entertaining.

If you want the other demons to accept you as their Overlord, you have to work to earn their trust. Crashing meteors onto your roommate's garden will not endear them to you. Or maybe it will, who knows how things work down in the Underworld.

Otaku and pretty much no one else. However, I'm not going to sit here and proclaim that it shouldn't exist. I'm tired of the majority trying to turn every game into a grey/brown twitch shooter (or, at least, something else that appeals to the "dude-bro" market). I like diversity; I like the idea that a game as niche as this can still be viable even if I have no interest in it myself.

Besides, if these games didn't exist, we wouldn't get to enjoy the best Unskippables. :)

Pffff, for Heavenly flowers they sure look... extremely common and dull. :|

Heh. Nice to see someone else on here watches HCBailly. :)

He's actually the one who got me into the series.

So I definitely thought you were joking when you said that she just moved in as a roommate and there was nothing going on between them.

I totally forgot about that whole 'JRPG' thing.

Why is the music for these JRPG cutscenes always so over-the-top and intrusive?

Ditto the acting.

I have no clue why the "...it was probably a weed." line made me crack up so much. The delivery maybe?

They took the national clothing budget, and used it to upgrade public transport from buses to comets.

Wait... she killed angels? By what? Hugging them to death?

Oh wait. She "harmed" them. Yeah, I can see that.

The series is actually pretty aware of its absurdity.

The premise of this and the original game is pretty much : What if you played from the tyrannical brat's perspective that is usually the final boss?

Suggestive things attached to super-zombies, killing an entire earth space fleet by riding said meteors, the true extra final for cereal gaiz boss's finally for real form being a penguin suit.

Even things like the Red Ranger losing more and more partners (the most humorous time being Etna just shoots two of them during the pre-fight declaration of victory) until the point he's "recruiting" your team and monsters.

Makabriel:

Its much more weird than you hoped, but more direct than you think.

One of her ultimate moves is cosplaying as Godzilla and being able to do atomic breath for no explained reason.

Makabriel:

Oh wait. She "harmed" them. Yeah, I can see that.

Nope she actually killed fellow angles using a holy bow or special attacks.

Let's be honest here etna's a 1350 succubus with no breast, I don't see the harm.

That opening was... not its strongest.
I've not played D2, but I hear it was quite disappointing.
They're quite often better than this at the off, being rather silly most of the time.

She has the greatest magic stat in the first game actually, which means if you teach her some offensive spells she utterly destroys things.
Then later her unique specials do rather a lot of non-elemental (which is really rare) magic damage.

As someone who appreciates "niche" games (I WANT HOMEWORLD 3 DAMIT!) i wont deny any game the right to exist (maybe barbie games, though), but i cannot get the appeal of JRPGS. Unskippable is the most contact i got with them and every game where i have to press buttons for 20 minutes to advance the text are not for me...

Laharl: Morons! Reasonable amounts of clothing is for weak humans and love freaks!

Sadly, I find you less effective when doing game intros that are already deliberately tongue-in-cheek. Maybe the actual Cursed Memories intro will prove to be better material (I certainly liked Adel's voice better than Laharl's anyway).
