Disgaea is a strategy-RPG ( ala Final Fantasy Tactics) made by an obscure Japanese company called Nippon Ichi Software. It, and the other s-RPGs from the company have a cult following in North America, but the vast majority of people haven't heard of them. (then again, that's not TOO surprising since 'sRPG' isn't a mainstream genre to begin with, especially in the US).

As for the price, $90 is reasonable (relatively, of course). The game usually goes for over $100. I guess the reason is because they didn't make quite as many copies of the game as are made for most other games, and they just sold out really quickly.

Although there are a bunch of other games in that price range (most often rare games are RPGs too >_>), like Chrono Trigger or Namco's Tales of Eternia (PSX).

Luckily, there are other, cheaper games in the series (LaPucelle Tactics, and the one I have - Makai Kingdom). I don't mean cheaper as in the games aren't as good, it just that they made enough of them so that they're not absurdly expensive. I got my copy of Makai Kingdom used for $25.

But thinking about that copy of Disgaea at that shop, I may get it - because that place buys video games, anime, manga, DVDs, trading cards, etc. So even if I could raise half of the price by selling off stuff I don't play/read/watch anymore, it could be worth it. ...that is, assuming someone doesn't beat me to it.

Then again, there are two other games that I'd get first - Baten Kaitos Origins and Tales of the Abyss :P

If you liked tales games, you'd probably at least pass the game as half decent. I heard the character stories (i.e. sidequests) are not bad, just that the main story sucked badly. Battle system is the same as the other 3D tales games, so nothing to talk about there.

I am a major Tales fan, so I'll check it out at least.

Eternia is turning out to be only so-so at this point (about 5 hours in) - I hope Abyss lives up to Phantasia and Symphonia.

Just don't get it full price. It's not worth it. :P

I finally peeled the shrink wrap off LoZ: Minish Cap .
Had the game since last December but haven't played it until last weekend.

So far so good. I'm really enjoying it.
I don't like the lack of dungeons and the Kinestone pieces are getting on my nerves(about 12 people in Hyrule Town want the same one!) but it's quite easy on the eyes. I'm digging the OOT & Wind Waker sound effects. Interesting new weapons!
