Disgaea 3: Images and trailer

Disgaea 3: Images and trailer

Disgaea 3 clearly is not going to win prizes for its wondrously low resolution sprites, but it terms of creativity and "WTF" it's certainly up there. SRPG fans will definitely enjoy this game and its "Stupid hard levels".

As much as I'm not a graphics whore especially given the size of the team that made this game, I do have to wonder about something very peculiar. Like, why the sprites are incredibly low res but the backgrounds are much higher. Like much much higher. It's really jarring to have such a huge difference.

Really curious as to what went behind the scenes.

The game doesn't seem to innovate that much on franchise gameplay-wise, and graphically it looks nearly the same as the PS2 games, which looked okay at best.

I've beaten the 1st game, but grew tired of the gameplay after constantly grinding and raising stats after a while. It's great for fans of the franchise, but it won't draw in new people simply because the graphics looks so bad for a PS3 game.

thats because the environments are 3D and the characters are for some reason still 64X128 sprites (or something) why they couldn't up-rez these beggars belief!

Wow. So I'm a big Disgaea fan, and I really do think Nippon should have actually made some higher-res sprites. As much as I'm gonna get it day one, I think it's sad to have put so little effort into the visual category, especially to which makes the sprites stand out drastically. It almost hurts my eyes at times. Hopefully Disgaea 4 will be prettier.

Always count on Japan to create unique games. The plot for this game is probably the most refreshing of any game in 2008. But I'm sure kids today won't even look past the graphics.

Playstation2 it's can do this and graphic has low quality. I think it's should be Ps2 :-)

As much as i like Disgaea -and i like it a lot-, i think i ll stick to the PSP version now (the game is perfect for the machine). Sure i want to know the story, but i guess i ll wait for another 5 years and see it on the next handheld.

About the game

    Sdarts Even if you have the money, if the place where you're gonna put your TV and the viewing distance should always be taken into account. If you don't have a big room, don't buy a very big TV. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts @Moonwalker: If you do any basic research into TVs, you will find out that viewing distance and display size are very important factors when deciding to buy a TV. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (5 Hours ago)

    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (15 Hours ago)

    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (21 Hours ago)
