Disgaea 3 screenshot extravaganza

If you've been wondering what Disgaea 3 will look like on your HDTV, we've got a gazillion new screenshots to frisbee throw at you. Yep. The sprites are still the low-res generally-recycled stuff from the last generation of consoles, but they do look like they've been softened up a hair. The level design is still quite basic, but totally smooth. NIS isn't taking home any trophies for graphics, but it's always been their gameplay that grabbed us. This will probably succeed in that, so the fact that we privileged PS3 owners get first dibs is icing on the cake.

We've also received word that a release date for the addictive strategy RPG has been set -- January 31, 2008 is the date for Japan, so if you're an import-savvy fellow, there's probably not much you'd miss besides the humorous dialogue. If you've played the previous games, you'd be able to figure this out. Just a few more throwing options and monster fusions. Oh, and be sure not to choke on any pretzels and die. The Netherworld would miss you.

2. I guess as long as there is a niche for these GBA-power games on a mammoth console like PS3, Nippon will still make them.

5. Last generation? You mean 2 - 3 generations ago?

6. Despite the graphics it is a great series. I must admit they could have made something exceptionally beautiful with the machines resolution. I still want some 2D RPGs to make it to the PSN.

7. Why do people always whine about NIS graphics? What, are they supposed to jump to 3d cel-shaded characters? That would be cool, but wouldn't add much value. Thing is, their games actually give $60 worth of playtime, and are funny and addictive. I know at least the Japanese will like it. They always seem to care about the fun more than the graphics or tech. Although, I wonder how much cool stuff NIS can fit on Blu-ray?

8. In this case, we can whine about graphics, because other sprite-based games have gotten a next-gen makeover (Street Fighter, etc.). They're just giving us a PS2 game. Shame on you, NIS.

9. is this the game there's a demo of on JP PSN?
