Disgaea 5 Complete (Nintendo Switch) FINAL ENTRY | GAME JOURNAL

ENTRY #6


PLAY TIME: 50h 00m

WEBSITE: www.nintendo.com/games/detail/disgaea-5-complete-switch

IT ALL ENDS HERE

Well, everyone, our Disgaea 5 Complete Game Journal has come to an end.

I was able play another nine hours or so of this meaty tactical role playing game and came out the victor.

That is correct. I beat Disgaea 5 Complete *party time* Yay!!!

Killia, Seraphina, Zeroken, Red Magnus, Usalia, and Christo finally confronted Void Dark in an epic end battle. It was glorious.

FINAL TEAM

By the end of the game, however, I was only really using Killia and sometimes Seraphina from the core six main characters. I’m curious as to what everyone else out there used in their first playthrough (comment here or on my Twitter to let me know).

My go-to team mainly consisted of “generic” characters. These are characters one can obtain by talking to The Recruiter shop. They’re generic characters because they are not the main characters of the story such as Killia, Seraphina, and company.

MY MVP

Essentially, my party consisted of generic classes such as the Maid, a Thief, and a Sage. I used the Thief to toss my Sage and Maid into enemy quarters while my Sage blasted away foes with her powerful spells (for your information, my Land Decimator still sucked in the latter portion of the campaign). My Maid, though, was the most valuable person to me the entire game.

Her ability to use two items in one turn, or to attack and then use an item in a single turn, allowed me to win battles quickly while leveling her up. Yes, Thigh Highs–the auto-generated name of my awesome Maid class–won almost every battle for me.

THE RIGHT SET-SUP

I used her tactically to my advantage. Before battle, I equipped her with an ability that made objects thrown by her do more damage. In battle, I would toss her towards a group of enemies with my Thief then use the Maid to toss “Throwing Knives” and “Medal” items at enemies for massive damage. Rinse and repeat my way through the final chapters of the game.

It did not hurt that Thigh Highs was also hundreds of experience levels stronger than the rest of my team and the enemies I encountered. She topped out at about Level 530 while Void Dark’s stage supplied me with foes around Level 100. Let’s just say I was beating Void Dark’s cronies with relative ease with a smile across my face.

DISGAEA 5 COMPLETE IS A BUCKET LIST GAME

I had so much was fun playing this game from the very start to the closing credits. I enjoyed the anime tropes, cliche character story progression, humor, and hilarious character moments and interactions. Seraphina–the richest demon around–accepted being poor and grew as a person because of it. Red Magnus talks like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. And everything in between.

COMES TO AN END

But all good things must come to an end. Well, really, I will come back to Disgaea 5 Complete often to continue on with post-game content such as completing the downloadable content and trying to level up my team to the elusive Level 9999.

There are also more character classes for me to unlock as well as the Item and Chara Worlds to explore. Hundreds of hours of play time awaits.

THANK YOU!

So, thank you all for reading my Disgaea 5 Game Journal every week until its conclusion. If you haven’t already decided to get the game, what are you waiting for? Go out and buy it. Go. I’ll wait.

Thanks for reading!

Disgaea 5 Complete (Nintendo Switch) Entry #4 | GAME JOURNAL

ENTRY #4


PLAY TIME: 20h 05m

WEBSITE: www.nintendo.com/games/detail/disgaea-5-complete-switch

Welcome to another entry in my Disgaea 5 Complete gamethrough blog!

It is where I, Walapie Gamer, take you through my chronicles of playing Disgaea 5 Complete for the Nintendo Switch.

Disgaea 5 consumed my life this past week.

I was able to clock in over ten hours, and I want to do more. An interesting character appeared. His name? Gale Force Overlord Zeroken, to be precise. He’s a ninja type who constantly tries hard to show how awesome and worthy he is but ultimately fails at doing so. Very entertaining.

I enjoyed watching him interact with Killia who he has seemingly deemed his rival. While Zeroken is being introduced and doing Zeroken things, Red Magnus continued to be his big, clueless self. Don’t ever change, Red.

Moving on from the Prinny-Knife-Gun party and onto my next stop: The Poison world, Poisondise.

These demons are too cute. I could not wait to battle . . . oh, what? Zeroken?! Again? I should have expected this since the episode was named after him. Let’s see what he’s up to.

I laughed out loud at Seraphina’s response. The party was not having any of Zeroken’s overproduced and theatrical antics.

Zeroken quickly told us his motivation. But he decided not to give us the reason behind said motivation. The party agreed to let him fight alongside us as long as he didn’t get in the way. Killia, like always, didn’t even care. As long as he found Lord Void Dark, Killia was fine with Zeroken either way.

I was particularly glad the overzealous ninja was there to fight alongside us. I opened up the Cheat Shop earlier which allowed me to alter enemy strength among other things. I had increased enemy levels and had forgotten to lower them before stepping into battle. Silly me. I decided to try and beat the stage without having to exit the fight just to lower the enemy difficulty. Laziness won out, yet I was also up for the challenge.

With Zeroken at my side, I thought it was possible.

The battles in Poisondise, however, made it even more daunting due to the purple poison that surrounded us from all sides.

With careful, tactical play, I managed to snag a victory in the land of poison. I found out crossing the poison was much easier when I stacked all of my characters on top of each other to form a Tower. Then, I would toss the Tower onto safe land on the other side of the poison where the enemies were. It was easy goings–battling baddies–after that. I even unlocked a few monsters for myself by completing quests. Yup!

I unlocked an Undead as well as a Sludge monster to add to my party. I have yet to add either to my group, but I am glad the option to recruit monsters exists.

Before moving the story forward, I decided to do heavy level grinding on stage 2-1. It is a level with few enemies that and a 50% increase in experience. On top of this boost, the Cheat Shop allowed me to alter values until I had an additional 50% experience boost. I had to momentarily lower the amount of money and skill points I earned to do this but it was worth it.

Why grind levels? All of my characters were beginning to have level gaps before grinding and I always like to close that gap as much as I can. Additionally, their levels were also in the late teens to mid twenties, and I felt like they were not as powerful as I wanted them to be. Especially in Poisondise in which being poisoned meant taking damage every turn. Higher levels meant more health points which meant surviving longer in the poisonous demon world. My goal was to lower the gap in levels between party members and increase survival in Poisondise. And I completed both objectives.

All of my characters are now overpowered for the story portion, and all sit within the level forty to fifty plus range. I don’t feel god-like yet, but I am getting there.

I enjoy being challenged so whenever I want to be tested, I simply raise enemy strength at the Cheat Shop and my level fifty characters feel like level one characters in comparison. And since I can do this without penalty or cost–at any time–I always have the exact gaming experience I want. Thank you, Disgaea.

Eight to ten hours passed due to grinding levels for fun. Then, the Item World was introduced to me. A dream come true. I have a feeling I’ll be writing plenty more about this place in a future journal. It is an infinite world inside of each item in my inventory, full of power-ups and creatures. The deeper I went, the more powerful the item became as it leveled up. Yeah. Even items can gain levels; I can see myself grinding important items in the late game for hours on end.

Somebody take this game away from me . . . too late.

My introduction with the Item World was fairly quick. I was tasked at leveling up a Gate Key to Level 10. Then, I would be bale to open the Dimension Gate in order to get to the next area. This did not take long. Before I knew it, a Prinny was congratulating me on making the Gate Key strong enough to unlock the portal.

Of course, the Gate Key led us to a short fight with monsters and a new Overlord. Hedler, a giant moth Overlord of Poisondise, was easy to enough to defeat. Well, maybe that’s because I was in a hurry to leave the poison world so I lowered the enemy difficulty back to normal. The normal difficulty baddies did not stand a chance to my overpowered group.

And with that, I said goodbye to Poisondise and Episode 3.

Whatever happens, I will be sure to update you here of my ongoing adventures.

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

Happy gaming, everyone!
