Back in 2009, a friend introduced me to an RPG game that is not only compelling but also has amazing graphics.
In this article, I am going to talk about the Disgaea 3 Game for the Playstation 3. This is the third installment of the popular franchise and it is set in the Netherworld.
There is this school called the “Evil Academy” where our main characters go to. This school awards students who do particular things.
For one, if you have the knack of not showing up to class, you are considered a good student. If you are the one who always pick up fights in school and is always disrespectful of the teachers, then you get to be the honor student.
If you are the type of student who is a “goodie two shoes”, then you are considered a “delinquent”.
Anyway, the story begins when Mao, the game’s main protagonist, skipped class to dream about taking over his father. Mao’s father is the most feared Overlord in the Netherworld and Mao wants to take that helm away from his father.
After reading his favorite manga comics, he decided to become a hero. This way, he can gain fame necessary to overthrow his father out of his post.
When Mao made his plans to become a hero apparent in the academy, his rival, Raspberyl, wants to stop him. Raspberyl is the top delinquent in the academy and if you can remember, delinquents in this academy mean that you are good, not evil.
So, without resorting to violence, Raspberyl talks Mao out of his grand plan of becoming a hero, but of course, it fails.
Almaz, an Earthling who wants to save the princess of the underworld, was defeated by Mao in the process. Because of this, Almaz now becomes Mao’s demon slave.
After recruiting Almaz, Mao went to the Heart Bank where he had his heart cut open in search for memories that can help him defeat his father.
It turned out that Mao did contribute to his father’s demise because he helped a Superhero named “Aurum” defeat the overlord by telling him where his father’s weak point is.
The story then focuses on how Mao will destroy Aurum to become the ultimate hero of the Netherworld.
Disgaea 3 Game for the Playstation 3 is a strategy RPG game where you will be presented with an overworld map. In this map, you can control and position your units strategically to defeat the enemy forces.
One of the unique elements of the game is where you can throw a “geo block” to a specified location and you can step on it. You can also throw characters to a location too so that you can step over them to gain the advantage.
There is also a new “magichange” feature where two allies combine to become a stronger unit. Before you can magichange, however, you need to meet certain conditions.
First, both of the companions need to be in the same club and both of them can only change into a stronger unit for 2 turns. There is a club called the “Magintology” club wherein you can increase the transformation period by 1.
There is also a concept called the “evilities” which players can use to augment their characters to become stronger. These “evilities” will grant better stats and new skills for the duration of the battle.
The Disgaea 3 Game for the Playstation 3 is an amazing strategy RPG. I highly encourage you to get this game if you have a Playstation 3 game console.
