    Last night, I received my copy of Disgaea D2. I figured since there is no embargo and that I beat the first four games in the series this month, I would share my thoughts and maybe answer any questions you guys may have. I will be starting tonight, so I keep a rolling update.

    No embargo? Got to love NISA for that I suppose. I'm interested in the story mainly as that's my main draw to the Disgaea series.

    The good thing is that it brings back the characters from the first game, so if you skipped the other entries after playing the first, it should be easy to get back in.

    I've started playing today, and still working through the first Episode.

    I suck a lot more a Disgaea-type games than I thought I did. No other comments, really.

    Haha, of course, but I think I'll be better off when I re-learn Disgaea's mechanics and all the new stuff they've added. I haven't really played an entry to the series since... well, the original, so I have a lot of catching up to do mechanics wise.

    I got a few for you: 1. How is the "cheat shop" or whatever it's called work? 2. Did you unlock female samurais yet? Love those generics. 3. Does it feel like a step up from D4?

    Sorry for not replying sooner. Wanted to get a ways in to better answer this.

    1) The cheat shop basically allows you to move some bars around that all start at 100%. For example, you could decrease the amount of money you receive in favor of more experience, or increase the amount of Mana to level up magic in place of special skills. Also, there are options to turn on and off things like protecting characters or support attacks. You can also increase the difficulty of the monsters several times over.

    2) Yet to unlock female Samurai (ah, Disgaea 4), but just got the Heavy Knight.

    3) Right now, there are some things it does better and others not so much, but still feeling around.

    ^ I would say this is a worthy sequel, would you?

    Got some more for you. Dunno if you're allowed to answer but do you get female Laharl as a permanent unit? Know anything about the usual extra characters you defeat in the post game to get as units? I'm hoping Fuka and Desco are included like they were in the vita port of D3.

    Putting this in spoilers.

    Right now, female Laharl only showed up in a single episode. Hoggmeiser showed up, but disappeared. I don't see any other recurring characters just yet.

    I see! Something tells me she will end up being an extra story in the post game, if I know my Disgaea games right. Thanks for the replies.
