I am actually quite pleased with this, as this means I can actually buy and play them instead of being forced to emulate them. Like Makai Kingdom at the moment.
In Australia, it was a pretty trivial matter to get US copies of Z.H.P. and Disgaea Infinite imported, but for a long time, my PSP wouldn't connect to my wireless network, so if I couldn't get them that way, I wouldn't have been able to play them at all. Makai Kingdom being so old and on a region-locked system, I can see how it might be a problem.

New Disgaea 4 trailer. Special attacks look more insain than normal.
Hyped for Hyperdimension Neptunia V 2
I was all ready to complain about the lack of a Masked Hero in that trailer, but then one appeared for a moment, and then there was a Shrine Maiden, and then later something about a map editor, and I just forgot all about complaining. It doesn't even need to be in English! It speaks the universal language of awesome.

A map editor? Cool stuff. Also: I'd forgotten how much I like Disgaea's music.
Hey I am new her, and there is something that has been bugging me about one of the tropes listed on Etnas character tropes list, I just had to question the description of Etna as: “Man Behind The Man: Of the Hyper Competent Sidekick variety, without her, the Netherworld would fall apart. She's really the one in charge of organization; and it's loyalty to the memory of Laharl's father that has her putting up with him.” Especially the “Of the Hyper Competent Sidekick variety, without her, the Netherworld would fall apart” part, I don’t remember Etna doing anything in any game that was directly for the sake of the Netherworld or push Laharl to do so, the only thing was the zombie incident, and that was pretty minor thing that she used to teach Laharl a lesson. Laharl is always the one that does all the work, the thinking (coming up with plans) and generally doing his very best, the problems is that even if he puts all of his heart and soul into it, he is still a child with little to no experience, something that Etna shows almost no understanding of. Though it is true that she does have immense power over him, as she can come with an ultimatum in order to push him to do whatever she wants him to do, so I guess she is kinda “in charge of organization”. The Hyper Competent Sidekick trope about Etna bugs me in general , as in the Prinny games Laharl is a Prinny, so the Overlord position is open and Etna has not taken it, even though Laharl asked her to take it if something happened to him(some sidekick she is). In Prinny 2(I am from Europe, and the games is out on PSN her) one of the Prinnies mention that they think Etna does not want to deal with the responsibility of being an Overlord. But it is not like this is something new about Etnas character; Etna already in Etna Mode thought being the Overlord was “a big pain in the butt”, so it’s not like her fear of responsibility is a new thing. And about the supposed Badass Decay Etna has received in the Prinny games compared to the main games; I would argue that the Prinny games are from the Prinnies perspective, and for a long time, even before the Prinny games, it has been exemplified that Etna treats the Prinnies horribly. So why would she seems like anything else but a spoiled brat in a game that is set from their perspective? The way I see it, it is brilliant. I know then one see an example that seems wrong a troper is suppose to correct it, but I want to know what the troper in question was thinking about and what you guys think of this? I am new, so I don’t want to do something wrong.
So here's the thing. I bought a $20 playstation network card to get Cla Dun. Cla Dun came out to $21 because Sony added tax. FUCK YOU, SONY. FUCK YOU HARD.
^ ...XD ^^ If you think it's wrong, correct it. That's all I can really say.
It's not all that bad, I guess. I just bought two more $20 cards so I can get ZHP as well. But I now have $7 left over, and no memory stick space for anything.

Good News for the people who liked Cladun. There's going to be a Cladun 2. Check out the trailer. Here's also a siliconera article on it.

Awesome! On that note, the last boss music for that game was amazing: [[youtube:nIRIyZKFxT4&feature=related]]
FUCK YES CLADUN! I bought Cla Dun and ZHP at roughly the same time. I decided "Eh, I guess I'll play Cla Dun for like an hour and then go to ZHP. ZHP is probably better, anyway." -5 hours later- "...Fuck."
Here it comes again: my approximately-hexamonthly overpowering urge to play through Disgaea 3. Maybe I'll have the patience to beat Baal this time!
Would you feel like starting a liveblog of the game, by any chance?
I'd never be able to do it justice.
There's a reason it's called Absense of Justice.
Prinny 2 comes out next week! Its gonna come out on PSN right?

So, I've been looking through the Let's Play Archive, and I found an LP of Soul Nomad & the World Eaters. This was in the beginning FAQ: What the hell does the title mean? Okay. Soul Nomad was rated T by the ESRB. This clearly indicates that the ESRB never actually played the game, because among other things Soul Nomad contains near constant swearing from the main character, rape, murder, slavery, a dash of genocide, and all sorts of other happy fun times. And most of that's in the Normal Path. The Demon Path is much, much worse. Oh, how bad can it be? There simply aren't words. You will just have to see it with yourself after we finish the Normal Path and unlock it. All I'll say is that it's a large part of why the game should be rated M, and is one of the most painful things I've ever experienced in a game. Not because it's overly hard. Not because there's terrible voice acting. Not because the story is poorly written. If anything, the story is way, way too well written. It's pure concentrated unpleasantness on a grand scale. So, with that big a buildup, I was thinking, "You probably just kick a couple puppies." Then I actually got to that section of the LP, and, well . . . LOLWUT? I couldn't even finish reading.
That's Feo . . . He's a disgusting, mysoginistic, paedophilic asshat who moonlights as a shitty writer—Something Awful
So, with that big a buildup, I was thinking, "You probably just kick a couple puppies." Then I actually got to that section of the LP, and, well . . . LOLWUT? I couldn't even finish reading.If you didn't get to the end, then you missed the best part! The ending is so absurdly grim that it folds in on itself and becomes completely ridiculous.
Yeah, I really felt pretty disgusted while playing through the Demon Path, though the "Bad Ending" was actually pretty heartwarming for what had been "Rape The Dog: The Game"
"Even if she blocks your number! Stalker Hero!" "The Unlosing Ranger (temp)!" God damn, I love this game.
I've gotta finish that game game before Prinny 2 comes out.

Wait wait what? Etranger is Super Baby? What the hell? Didn't see that one coming... Also, I love Medeia Lass' voice. The Unlosing Ranger! (temp) cracks me up every time.
