Disgaea 5 is the first Disgaea game I have played and...wow...this is by far the most complex game I have ever played (even surpassing Civilization series). There are so many levels of depth. I have so many questions.....so much so that I am confused to what I can even ask about.

What source would you have to recommend newbies like me to better understand the mechanics and systems of Disgaea? Because it is pretty daunting to just jump into.


Maybe he only played Revolution or something?

Analysis: How to Pick a Character
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGHGEttNjyo

Makes a video on how people choose characters in fighting games and gets the order completely backwards. Apparently when you pick a character for the first time, a tier-list pops up in your mind's eye and lets you judge their 'perceived strength' before you even play the game. Playstyle was in the middle which is right. Any sort of mention of aesthetics is mentioned last, when that's really the first thing you notice (or should notice).

This just in: Cyberpunk 2077 will NOT be sold on Steam! Absolutely not! It will only be available via bootlegged GameCube discs sold by an old Polish lady in a derelict shed behind the CDPR offices. Plan accordingly.

Jason Schreier of Kotaku defends Bethesda for using the same engine
https://www.neogaf.com/threads/jason-sc ... e.1468108/

Jason Schreier wrote:Blaming Bethesda’s “game engine” is misguided, however, because the word “engine” itself is a misnomer. An engine isn’t a single program or piece of technology—it’s a collection of software and tools that are changing constantly. To say that Starfield and Fallout 76 are using the “same engine” because they might share an editor and other common traits is like saying Indian and Chinese meals are identical because they both feature chicken and rice. What we see on the outside, like a game’s graphical style, its animation system, and its physics, can be changed in all sorts of ways without switching to a new engine.


Woo-Fu wrote:First you guys browbeat innocent blizzard employees who are developing what the spreadsheet told them to develop and now you're jumping on the back of Bethesda's wage slaves who have no say in their choice of tools.

No wonder Jason has to stand up for the innocent who can't stand up for themselves. I might have to start a gofundme just to get him a bald eagle tattoo on his chest and angel wings on the back.

More for the title than the quote but that's kinda funny too.

Mr. Matt wrote:FEMINAZI: The Triggering is a political satire of the third wave feminist movement; specifically its most vocal and outspoken members, who seem like they wander around just looking to find anything they can deem sexist and/or politically incorrect, freaking out and screaming with the biggest outrage response possible. In this game, that is quite literally what you do. You run around a tiny section of streets, a beach, and a small wooded area, finding white males who haven't conformed to feminist values to scream things like "Bigot!" at. Additionally, you can find women pushing strollers look happy to be moms, and can shout "TRAITOR!" at them. You score points for doing this and build up your triggering meter.

However, two things are required to justify your existence: triggering, and tolerance. To display to the world how tolerant you are, you run around finding anyone with brown skin and say things like "Sorry!" to them. What was weird for me at first was that I couldn't tell who to scream at, who to ignore, and who to be nice to, so I kept losing within about a minute of starting the game. You see, like an idiot, I hadn't read the instructions, and didn't realize what I was supposed to do. I quickly caught on, and was shouting at white males and women with children, and praising anyone with brown skin. Then I could stay "alive"/active, running about doing as I pleased. There are also several minigames to help you get fatter, help police shoot only white criminals, throw male babies in the trash while sparing female babies, and a few others. The minigames are simple and not all that great, but they do add to the game.
