Who can say? We're having another sale on Rayman Origins for Vita. I don't know what kind of response you're expecting.

They must've run out of Dora the Explorer games.

As for the game itself, it's pretty good and if you enjoyed playing the PS3 Disgaea games like 3/4, there's really no reason why you wouldn't like 2.

So Disgaea this Tuesday, & then the sequel the week after. Not bad, though again, if you have a Vita, you can download the PSP versions that have more content.

I have the PDP PSVita Trigger Grips and think they're excellent without being as bulky/unwieldly as some of the more extreme looking additions. I actually wish the system was built like the PDP Grips. Aside from a few Death Mode levels in Sound Shapes where the tiniest bit of extra responsiveness mattered, I've used the Grips for basically every game I've played and couldn't imagine using the system without them.

I would caution that they feel a bit flimsy when off the system (the lower 'bar' that connects the two sides is very thin, but they're very easy to add/remove), they don't fit in my case and I'll probably need to replace it every year or so, but they MSRP for $14.99 so it's not an outlandish expense.


I like the PDP grips, although it concerns me how the triggers could put extra wear on the Vita triggers. I recently found the eForcity grips which are less know, but pretty decent. eForcity does not have triggers (like CTA). I'm not sure which is better. Either one is definitely better than no grips at all.

Oh god yes. I played all the games and the gu series when I was a little kid but sadly I sold them all awhile ago. I really want to replay the series for decent price whether it be hd or ps2 classics.

As for the game itself, it's pretty good and if you enjoyed playing the PS3 Disgaea games like 3/4, there's really no reason why you wouldn't like 2.

To be the devil's advocate here... I loved the rest of the series but didn't enjoy Disgaea 2.

The characters are extremely annoying, especially those with nails-on-chalkboard whiny voices.. the dialogue makes me cringe, while the writing in the rest of the series tends to be pretty funny. It also didn't seem to add much in the way of mechanics, compared to the other sequels, so the gameplay, to me, just felt like more of the same. For these reasons, it's the only Disgaea I haven't been able to finish.

I still liked it, but 2 is definitely the runt of the litter. I didn't care that it didn't add much in mechanics, but it was a weak group of characters in general.

Sumioni demo was okay, felt like Okami as a 2D platformer, though having to use the rear touchscreen to refill your ink felt really awkward, plus switching from buttons to drawing platforms in the middle of battle & such was kind of annoying at times. Though for $10, it almost feels like getting. Any opinions?

Still not sure on Orgarhythm. I feel like I should like it (Pikmin + rhythm), especially if that's 1/2 off as well for $15, but I don't think I was sold on the demo. Maybe because it felt a bit too easy (which I'm sure the game gets harder), as there was barely any enemies to fight once I finished the tutorial & played the actual stage.

Gah, I love Mega Man 10 so much. Once you get over that hump, and get back in the groove, it gets a lot easier. Practice makes perfect in these games. I still don't quite understand how people get through the Wily stages without getting hit. Seems damn near impossible to me.

Keep in mind that Orgarhythm was the one that was announced as a permanent price drop. So if it's not cheap enough for you, just wait out for an additional sale on it.

The key is practice makes perfect as you stated.

I've heard it's around 30-40 hours.

It wasn't really hard until Wily 1, cause theres 3 boss fights IIRC. But wily 4 is probably the harddest by far. 11 boss fights altogether. You can save after every level in MM10 to make it easier, and falling on spikes doesn't count if you have that item. Also you can play it on easy mode and as any character you want.

I played up to wily 1, gave up one day and forgot which save file had the perfect run going so I abandoned it rather than risk beating Wily 1-4 and then not getting the achievement

These boil down to luck / skill, but this still isn't as bad as beating Hard Corps without dying.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

I agree but to less extent. Disgaea 2 is my least favorite in the series for the same reason but I liked it enough to finish it and would say it's definitely worth 10 bucks.

For me its 4>3 on Vita>1>3>2

I hated 2 for so many reasons, the characters were boring, and the story wasnt good at all. It just felt like a generic RPG story.

I'm dreading Wily. I'm playing on Normal with Proto. I beat it just once with Bass, but I don't like his inability to shoot while moving. Plus Proto's shield and charge shot really come through in a tight spot. But as a frame of reference, when I first started on Tuesday after downloading, I couldn't make it through Sheep Man without dying at the first mini boss every single time. Now I can do it with my eyes closed. And I SUCK at platformers. So really, just keep it up and even a complete idiot can do it.

So I finally got back into Tokyo Jungle. I've just been unlocking animals as fast as I can until I get to the Black Panther, then I'll start leveling him up and use him to try to get the trophy for doing all of the challenges. Then I'll use one of the animals you get from beating the story to cheat my way to 100 years, haha.

Since we're kinda just talking about random games, I'll say that I've been extremely impressed with Dokuro. Finished up the game this afternoon, but I gotta go back and replay some levels to get my finish time under 250 minutes (I'm a slow player). I only had to look up solutions for about 5 levels, (one of which I just forgot the blue chalk existed) most the puzzles are tough but fair. Lots of content, was well worth my $9.99.

Don't know if I'll be going for the platinum, not sure I want to try and complete all of Stage 14 without getting hit.

Not sure if it helps / matters, but I thought Orgarhythm is the worst Vita game at the moment (and I own Earth Defense Force). The gameplay is quite convoluted (it gets quite fast paced too =.=;;), it's not really long and it's impossible to platinum without finding someone who owns the game in person (or vita Ad Hoc party... though I don't know if it works). To this day I don't see why so many people reviewed it highly (averaged a 7 - 8). I assumed it was over it being unique / different, but so many people told me off that I like to assume I just missed something great about it.

Stage 14 isn't too bad once you know how to play the game. The hard one is beating the final boss, since you can only attack him during a few select instances.
