Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention


Disgaea 3 is one of those games that just make you ask "why?" After all, it's a port of a PlayStation 3 game on the Vita, a system veritably deluged in ports. It's a port that doesn't really add anything that wasn't already in the PlayStation 3...

Awesomenauts Xbox 360 Review


We take a look at Ronimo Games' long-awaited Awesomenauts, an unique little MOBA with a retro flare, just for consoles.

Here are those basics again, but with a bit more of Awesomenauts' personality: choose a jetpack-wearing, mine-dropping, laser-wielding space monkey; then kill the pawns of the opposing droid army, thereby securing "Solar" for the aliens which bought...

Review: Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention for Vita


Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention is the most complete and best version of Disgaea 3 you can get.

All of the content from the PS3 version, from the base game to the DLC, is included, four new side-stories have been added, there are new skills and magic for characters to use, you can use buttons or the touch screen to control it and you can...

Sprite art is unchanged and still looks a bit dated

Disgaea 3 Review: Its Ridiculousness Only Runs Skin-Deep


This time-wasting Vita strategy port is far more sane than its creators would have you believe.

Let us assume, for the sake of making a conversation, that we can both agree the original Disgaea was a brilliant piece of game design. No, not perfect by any means; but what it lacked in refinement it more than made up for with sheer audacity. Even if...

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention: Now on Vita, dood!


Tactical RPGs just belong on portables. There's something about them that works best to fill any amount of time, and they don't lose anything from being on a smaller or less-powerful device. We saw that with the first two Disgaea PSP ports, and Absence...

So much game, slick port, added content and features

Weird touch implementation, won’t change your mind about Disgaea

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention Review


Disgaea 3 makes for a great Vita game that can be explored and enjoyed from here to eternity.

Whether you're a strategy fan that hasn't been introduced to the delights of Disgaea or a series veteran that already played the third offering on the PS3, Disgaea 3 is highly recommended on Vita. The nature of the system makes for more forgiving...

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention Review


You know, maybe the best way to summarize this game is as follows: It's Disgaea. And when you say, “it's Disgaea,” strategy/RPG aficionados know exactly what to expect, while anyone else will likely get this confused look on their face. But considering...

The Ugly: “Lv. 9,999? …and exactly how long might that take?”

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention Review


Disgaea 3 does a lousy job of familiarizing you with its complex mechanics, but rewarding tactical depth and goofy humor make the learning curve worth climbing.

Deep, involving turn-based tactical battles ; Funny story with lots of great characters ; Enough content to keep you happily occupied for a long time

Does a poor job explaining its mechanics ; Minor camera frustrations

Unlike Mao with his SlayStation Portable, you probably won't get millions of hours out of Disgaea 3, but considering that you can level your characters all the way up to 9999, and that there are numerous endings to discover and other scenarios to...

Gas Guzzlers PC Preview


We give Gamepires' debut title and car combat game Gas Guzzlers a first look on PC.

Gamepires is currently finishing up work on their debut title, a PC only racer by the name of Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage. It's a terrible name, but if you're not a superficial arse, you'll look beneath the hood and see it's a pretty fine piece of work.

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention


The first crop of games available for any system launch usually need the requisite RPG, and with Sony's launch of the PSVita handheld, Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention was the available choice. Technically, the game is a port of the PlayStation 3 title...

The sound design is also catchy and delightful. Fans of the series that have played other iterations will recognize some of the signature tunes. There is also a Japanese soundtrack for the purists who wish to play as originally designed. Overall, the...
