Disgaea 3 Free for PS+ on Vita

 

Oh boy! One of my favorite rpg franchises has been added to the instant game collection on the Vita, Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention is a port of Disgaea 3 on the PS3 but features all previous add ons, including Baryl’s short story arc(which I never got around to play, so I’m very excited to start playing this) which basically makes this the GOTY/Complete edition of the game, if you will.

For those unfamiliar with Disgaea, it’s a strategy rpg, that takes place in the Netherworld, the home place of demons, each game features a new protagonist & supporting cast with ones from previous games making cameos in the newer one. Disgaea 3 features Mao, son of the overlord who is out on a quest to become a hero so he can beat up his dad. why would he want to beat up his dad you ask, well, his dad stepped on his video game console and collection of games of course! As you can imagine the series is quite wacky and is a really good game to boot.

So go on your Vita and make sure you download and start playing Disgaea! And if you only own a PS3, don’t forget that you can still download games on the Vita’s instant game collection and have them on your download list so you can play them whenever you do decided to get a Vita.

3 PSP Games Worth Checking Out

Hey guys, sorry about not posting anything in the last couple of days, had a mid term plus I need to finish up the first part of my transfer application, so I haven’t had much time to play lately(must play more Ni No Kuni!!). Lately I’ve found myself playing some of my old PSP PSN games on the train. So I figured I’d share three of my favorite PSP games that are available one the PSN, note that these are also playable on the Vita as well; which is the system I play them on.

3) Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy

This is a prequel to the original Dissidia and features more characters as well. While the story is quite… confusing, the combat is the true meat of the game. Think of it as the Smash Bros of Final Fantasy, and just like Final Fantasy you can customize your equipment, even your moveset! The only disappointing thing about this game is that Cloud doesn’t have a Zack Fair alternate costume -Zack fanboy-.

2) Gods Eater Burst

This game is one of my newer purchases, so far I’m about 25 hours in if i recall correctly. This game is at heart a Monster Hunter competitor; or clone as many like to label it. Now for me I never found much joy out of Monster Hunter, not that it was a bad game. It’s just I’d get bored of playing after a mission or two, but its different with Gods Eater. I guess its because theirs a story, an ultimate goal you can say. Plus, its more action packed. Basically every mission is like fighting one of the bigger baddies that’s in Monster Hunter, which is great.

1) Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days

Without a doubt this is the game I’ve invested¬† the most hours into on my PSP, the only game that even comes slightly close is the original Disgaea. If you don’t know what this game is about, it’s a strategy RPG with some of the most quirkiest characters I’ve ever seen, which is what keeps me hooked on the series. This game is all about leveling up, you even enter stages in your equipment to level them up as well.¬† According to my save file I’ve already invested 162 hours into Dark Hero Days, and the game is only $20. Some might not enjoy the grinding, hell, I didn’t like it at first neither but the story really keeps you playing.
