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

ENTRY #5


PLAY TIME: 26h 00m

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

So, everyone went curry crazy during Episode 4: Yellow, rabbit, and Curry.

It all started when an intruder was spotted in our Netherworld base and Killia’s curry went missing.

The intruder was more of an afterthought while everyone’s undying love for Killia’s curry came out into the open. The Prinny were especially mad.

A WILD PRINNY APPEARS

After a bit of searching, I was able to find a suspicious looking yellow Prinny hanging out at a computer in the lobby. The Yellow Prinny ran away upon approach, but I would not let that curry stealing thief get away.

I gathered Killia and the rest and traveled through the Netherworlds to chase after the Yellow Prinny but not before “The Other Killia” made Killia feel bad.

After that uncomfortable exchange, we traveled to a new Netherworld called Demunshroom.

MUSHROOM POWER

Get it? Demun; demon; because everyone is a demon in this game? Yeah.

Puns aside, the levels inside Demunshroom all contained the same battle gimmick: Randomly sprouting giant mushrooms that could be thrown at enemies and cause status ailments.

I never used this tactic as my team was strong enough to defeat foes by themselves. I did, however, destroy plenty of giant mushrooms with glee.

Any who, I chased after the Yellow Prinny from stage to stage until I reached the last level of Episode 4 . . .

. . . and here is where I did my usual thing and began an epic grind-fest. Yay!

GRINDING AWAY FOR THAT SAGE PAYDAY

I heard there was a character class in Disgaea 5 that was awesome and overpowered: The magic using Sage class with her decimating abilities.

Rumors of this class spread across the internet, and by rumors I mean I found tons of videos and articles detailing it from the PlayStation 4 release years ago.

A friend of mine told me I would not unlock it until late in the game.

I took that as a challenge.

After work one fine Friday, I played Disgaea 5 for nearly five hours to do what I thought was possible: To level up my Sage—Jinx is her name—from level 50 to level 150 and gain the powerful Land Decimator attack. And I knew just the way to do so.

HOW I LEVELD-UP LIKE A PRO

In my last Game Journal, I outlined an approach I took to increase the levels of my team members from 20 to their 50s. It involved going to Stage 2-1 to utilize the stage’s 50% experience boost along with increasing experience earned via the Cheat Shop. This is the same set-up I used once more to propel my Sage from a scrub to a somebody.

I also unlocked and equipped an ability to Jinx that gave her an additional 10% experience boost. No we are talking!

THE UNOPENED SODA TRICK

With everything in place, I went to the Item Shop and purchased hundreds of Unopened Sodas. This is a trick I learned online. If I remember correctly, a character gains one level with every eight items that are used. The Unopened Soda item is recommended because it is inexpensive and supplies two uses.

Once used, the item becomes an Opened Soda in the inventory that can be consumed an additional time. The idea is to use an Unopened soda, end the turn, use an Opened Soda, end the turn, and repeat until eight items are used by a single character. Level up. Easy as that.

But, there is more! All of the experience boosts I pooled together made it possible to level-up faster and required less Soda usage. I only had to use about two or three Sodas per level gained instead. This allowed me to increase Jinx’s levels really fast.

It also helped that my Maid class, Thigh Highs, had learned an ability that allowed her to give Jinx a second action every turn which meant my Sage was leveling up every other turn. Bingo, I got it.

Challenge passed and completed. Within an hour or so, my Sage was level 150 with the mighty Land Decimator attack in her possession. Just look at it . . .

SAD DECIMATOR

I quickly found out that the attack was weak and needed a lot of tweaking by applying the correct equipment and abilities to make it truly strong. This will be something I will research, and talk to my friend about, in the coming days.

I might not have the strength of the Land Decimator in my possession, yet, but I now know how to strengthen the rest of my team relatively fast. This is a good thing since I would like to get all of them closer to Jinx’s level. I’ll probably do a bit of level grinding as soon as I am done typing this journal entry. I can’t wait!

My Sage had reached level 150 and with that I returned to the final level of Episode 4.

YELLOW PRINNY EXPLAINS IT ALL

The Yellow Prinny was cornered but quickly explained what it was up to.

Its master, a demon Overlord, had transformed into a gigantic bunny creature and the Yellow Prinny stole the curry because curry was the only thing that could turn its master back into human form. Killia and the rest helped the Yellow Prinny to kill the opposing monsters nearby before subduing the crazed Overlord.

The Yellow Prinny screwed up the curry delivery, but luckily, Killia had one last plate hiding in his back pocket.

The Overlord Usalia gobbled up the food and returned back into the humanoid form she was meant to be then joined us on our quest to stop Lord Void Dark.

I also opened up a new shop called the Curry Shop. Who would have thought, right? I haven’t tinkered with it yet and I wonder what it does. Got to find out.

Success! Another fine Episode came to a close with great humor and funny character interactions.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, DEMON OVERLORDS

The game is as fun as ever and it continues to be so as new items, levels, characters, shops, and skills are unlocked.

Thanks for reading, and see you next time!

Amiibo Hunter | The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Bokoblin

Bokoblin Officially Hunted!

A wild Bokoblin appeared. On Amazon.

Well, I did see one in the wild at my local Target. Exactly one, to be exact. No more no less. It was hanging out with a gang of unsold Animal Crossing amiibo, waiting to be plucked by a true Zelda fan or amiibo collector. Luckily, I am both.

I even picked up the Bokoblin and carried it around with me, but I ultimately put it back in the name of being financial responsible. That is life, but I vowed to buy this little gremlin-goblin as soon as I could.

Flash forward three months later and over 200 hours played in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I wanted to snag this amiibo bad. Taking a trip to Target, Walmart, and Best Buy all ended with me being empty handed. But then, what happened to appear at a decent price on Amazon? This–

Yup. My very own Bokoblin amiibo at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (M.S.R.P.), too.

Just look at it.

LOOK AT IT!

Scary.

Even scarier? The price on Amazon jumped about fifty percent days after I bought mine. Geez. That was a close call.

Check out the rest of the pics from this amiibo pictorial on my Flickr page.

Disgaea 5 Complete (Nintendo Switch) Entry #2 | GAME JOURNAL

ENTRY #2


PLAY TIME: 4h 50m

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

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!

Why The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a Bucket List Game


The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is a certified Bucket List game that everyone should play before he or she “kicks the bucket”.


I have always been a huge fan of the Legend of Zelda series, but for some reason, I originally was not that excited to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Perhaps it is because I only completed one 3D Zelda game (that being the Wind Waker) along with my undying love for the 2D entries. But as the game’s launch approached, my desire changed from apathetic to desire-filled. Having played it for over one hundred hours, I can say with confidence that not only is Breath of the Wild a bucket list game but it is now one of my favorite Zelda games. It is very, very, good.

ZELDA FEVER RISES-

But before we move on, let us go back in time to the week before the Nintendo Switch (Nintendo’s hybrid console, handheld device) launched. My spouse ordered a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild expecting to receive it the same day as the console itself. But to both of our surprise, a shiny new copy of the latest Zelda adventure showed up on her doorstep seven full days before we even had the console to play it on. I ogled the cover and held the new Switch cartridge in my hand for the first time with glee before placing it on a coffee table careful not to scratch or scuff the exterior. There it would remain atop the table, next to tons of paper work and puzzle books, for the next week. Wanting to be played.

At this point, my spouse and I really wanted to play it. My Zelda enthusiasm was at full force now that we had the game in our possession. A friend gave me her copy of Game Informer magazine that had Breath of the Wild as a cover story. I offered to look at it with my spouse but she declined, not wanting to spoil or ruin the experience which I thought was a good idea as well. The next seven days could have been slow, waiting for the Switch console to launch, but real life events surely made the time fly by. Real life events that will forever be intertwined with my memories of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

THE DIAGNOSIS OF ADVENTURE-

A month before the game released, my spouse was diagnosed with cancer. Our days were filled with appointments, rehabilitation, taking medicine every few hours, cooking healthy foods, and sleep. Time passed very fast. By the time Zelda released and we finally had the Nintendo Switch in on hands, my spouse was ready to delve into a giant adventure to take her mind off of matters. And I was, too.

I will never forget the first moments of the game, waking up as the main character—Link—inside a darkened cave only to step outside into a vast world of green with mountains and structures as far as the eye could see. It was the start of an adventure that would take two months to complete with over one hundred hours (and counting) of play time. And that is without collecting all there is to collect and completing all of the puzzle rooms called Shrines.

So if my spouse and I spent so much time playing the game without completing everything, what were we doing? Adventuring! This world is huge and allows the traversal through water, up mountains, through vast plains, into enemy lairs, across deserts and much more. If we were not running from a huge mini-boss or the many Bokoblins throughout the lands, we were cooking food we could use to heal us later. Or perhaps we were completing a side quest and helping the man from Kakariko Village collect his chickens. We stopped to help those in need and adventured to everything we saw far off in the distance.

IF YOU CAN SEE IT, YOU CAN EXPLORE IT-

Is that an aircraft in the shape of a bird? We have to get there. Is that something climbing on the volcano? We have to visit it. What is that shining light coming from the mountain in the distance? Let us find out. This game is full of exploration; furthermore, the detail crafted into the anime inspired graphical presentation (along with the minimalistic sound design) only made the exploration more enjoyable to watch, hear, and experience.

The experiences did not end there and the game allowed us the freedom to tackle the open game world any way we saw fit. We decided to explore the world of Hyrule, opening up the map by visiting grand towers that loomed in the distance. Afterwards, and dozens of hours later, we explored the beautiful painting-esque world for specific locations the game asked us to find. And finally, we decided to complete the four main quests in the game before tackling the final boss. Of course, we found treasure chests, hidden secrets, and chased after many shooting stars along the way. But our adventure was distinctly ours and we will always remember it.

YOUR NEWEST BUCKET LIST GAME-

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was not a game I was anticipating. But it was a game I, and my spouse, needed in a tough time in our life. It is a grandiose experience worth spending hundreds of hours exploring. And I cannot wait to explore hundreds of hours more in the world of Hyrule, a Bucket List game for sure. Actually . . . I think I will play some more right now.
