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 #3 | GAME JOURNAL

ENTRY #3


PLAY TIME: 8h 57m

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.

I have successfully completed Episode 2 of the over-the-top tactical role playing game, and I am just loving it more and more.

I honestly laughed out loud when a mysterious new character showed up, and he actually said a “mysterious man suddenly” appeared. I know there are those out there who are not fond of this game’s story telling, but I have enjoyed both the writing and the character interactions so far.

Speaking of character interactions, a new female necromancer of sorts summoned an undead zombie to fight me. She, of course, did not even waste her time fighting my team and trotted away while I had my very first boss fight.

Status conditions were introduced in this battle and my characters were constantly being bogged down by health reducing poison. But thankfully, I set my team up with a Maid class character—who can use two items in one turn—and a healer class. I used the Maid’s unique ability to use two items in a turn to my advantage, curing multiple team members of their poison before healing my team’s health with my Cleric.

It felt really good being up against my first real challenge. Don’t get me wrong. Everything I have played so far has been fun, and squashing low level baddies to a pulp created its own form of satisfaction for me. But taking on a challenge and being forced to make chess-like decisions and succeeding felt invigorating. Tactics in a nut shell.

Any who, back to the boss fight.

I decided to stack my team members to form a Tower unit in order to take out a lot of the boss’ flunkies as I found it did the most damage. I started the battle trying to use individual characters in order to level each of their skills, but I quickly abandoned that tactic when it became apparent the flunkies were stronger than I had anticipated. With a couple of Tower attacks here and there, along with my healer and Maid classes acting as support, I managed to finish off the zombie hoard with every team member left living.

But the zombie menace had scarred my team. Members were left poisoned and near death with low amounts of health. The zombie boss waited at the top of a slope at far end of the stage, its presence an intimidating reminder of what I faced next. Additionally, the space he rested on boosted his level by ten!

So, I healed, created a strategy, and sent my most powerful team members to do battle. The zombie boss got a few good hits in, whittling Red (my Martial Artist class character who looks like Ken from the Street Fighter series) down to a few health points. I quickly healed, cornered the giant zombie thingy, and beat it with multiple gun shots, arrows, and back attacks.

The battle was won, and now I had my first boss battle under my belt. It felt good.

I spent a little time gaining experience points and leveling up at Stage 2-1. It has a unique set-up that allows for relatively quick leveling which allowed me to get my six team members to Level 10. It also helped me become more familiarized with Geo Effects—destructible items (known as geo Symbols) placed on the battle field that effect one or more grids. The zombie boss I fought? Yeah. He was standing on a Geo Effected square that increased his level, making him harder to beat. Stage 2-1 has three Geo Symbols that can be thrown, destroyed, and played with.

After about nine hours into my first playthrough, I can safely safe I am feeling very comfortable where I am. I have created a nice flow of completing quests for money and items, leveling up my characters and their skills, then moving the story forward ever so slightly. It is a rewarding cycle that has allowed me to grow stronger and advance without feeling as though any one thing is absolutely necessary. I stay on one self-made goal just long enough before jumping to something else. There is just so much to do in this game that it is never a chore, or a bore,  to play.

Episode 2 was quite entertaining, indeed.

The more I play, the more I learn, the more I go on YouTube to watch videos for tips and tricks, the more I love this game. The story is just starting to come together as the first cut scene of Overlord Void Dark (the main person every character wants to kill; I presume he is the ultimate boss of the game) played. I can’t wait to see where the narrative goes and what other play mechanics are introduced in the following episodes.

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!

GAME JOURNAL | Disgaea 5 Complete (Nintendo Switch) Entry #1

ENTRY #1


PLAY TIME: 1h 48m

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

I’ve been waiting for a Disgaea game on a Nintendo console forever. Yes. I dabbled with the DS version, but a full-fledged, modern Disgaea for a Nintendo home console escaped us Nintendo fans up until now. And the wait was worth it.

Since I primarily game on Nintendo hardware, as you might have guessed already, I did not play Disgaea 5 when it originally released, so I started this game pretty much blind. Well, besides watching a few videos to prep myself for what was about to come my way.

And of course, a tips and tricks video I would recommend.

The game’s intro did not disappoint. I quickly fell in love with Seraphina, the game’s Gorgeous Goddess who believes all men should fall to her whim. Oh. And she has never held anything heavier than a slice of cake. Then there is Killia, our main protagonist. He is a silent, brooding type of hero who loves to eat before each battle. Can’t fight on an empty stomach.

Through happenstance, the two end up together and our game begins.

I have only played two story missions in my nearly 2 hours of play time, but I have done so much. I’ve talked to every Non Player Character (N.P.C), read explanations on all of the game mechanics up to the point that I am at, and have grasped a bit of understanding about the battle mechanics and the weapons. The game is fun.

[SIDE BAR: For those new to tactic role playing games, the game’s battles take place on a grid. Think of a chess or checker board. And each turn, you move your characters across the grid towards enemy characters, do battle, and execute commands such as healing or using an item.]

I have not dedicated myself to playing a tactics game in ages, but this one has me hooked! I just found out the ability to stack my own characters one on top of each other to build a “tower”. And after the tower of characters is built, I was allowed to whack an enemy with my own characters for a lot of damage. Fun times, indeed.

So far, so good. The game is quick to begin and I can tell it will last hundreds of hours if I want it to. I am going to try some of the neat leveling up tricks I learned in the tips and tricks video above when I get the chance.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to put in a few hours over this weekend between real life obligations and the ongoing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild gaming mandatory daily play sessions.

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

Happy gaming, everyone!
