Welcome to the second entry in my Disgaea 5 Complete gamethrough blog!

I have played an additional 3 or so hours since my last entry and have successfully completed Episode 1 of the game.

Episode 1 was comprised of five levels (if I remember correctly), the right amount of story content, and a few more systems introduced that affected gameplay. Along with some zany anime inspired characters.

Out of the five levels, I completed the first stage over 40 times. Yes. Over 40. If don’t like to grind, no worries. It was not necessary at all for me to replay the first stage, but it was the fastest and easiest way to gain levels, experience, and money within the first five hours of the game. If I wanted to, I could just happily continue onward, but I’m the type of gamer that loves to squeeze every bit of potential gain from a game when I play. Uh . . . I guess I want to say–to put it succinctly–I love grinding 🙂

I also used the first stage to complete quests from the Quest Shop. Quests are constantly replenished, thus I fell into an addicting and fun loop of accepting quests, replaying stage 1, and clearing quests until I had to pry myself from the game because life obligations needed to be attended to. Boo hoo. Life *sigh*

But the few hours I got to play, I really enjoyed not only grinding it out but watching the characters interact. Seraphina still thinks she is the center of every man’s universe and Killia began to show a new side of himself. Very literally.

Also, the ridiculously muscled Red Magnus showed up. He’s okay. Seraphina doesn’t really like him and Killia draws a crude picture of him worthy of a first grader. What I like the most is Red Magnus’ ridiculous interactions with our previously mentioned duo.

As far as new role playing game systems that affect game play, I am thoroughly enjoying the Quest Shop as I mentioned above. Quests provided me with plenty of items, loot, and money plus they helped me get better familiarized with the controls. I’ve also unlocked a Skills Shop to further customize my character’s abilities and a nifty place called an Innocent Shop.

Innocents are characters that live inside items and strengthen them when equipped to them. When I completed a quest, I sometimes received an item with an Innocent equipped to it. The shop allowed me to rip the Innocent from the item and place it on any other item. This was pretty neat, being able to strengthen each of my characters just the way I wanted. So, if I wanted to gather all of my Hit Point raising Innocents and put them on a single armor and give it to a specific character, I could do that. The customization in this game is mind blowing in a good way.

I can’t wait to see what else is added now that I am the start of Episode 2. Oh. The evil folk are cooking up a plan . . .

I’ma smash those baddies when I get the chance. Until then, I’ll probably continue grinding to be as strong as I can because that is really fun for me. I’ve been looking up as many tutorial videos that I can to help which only makes me want to play some more. Hmmm . . . I think I hear the game calling to me as I type.

Oh, Serpahina. Will you ever learn?

Thanks for reading, and I will see you next time.

Happy gaming, everyone!
