Sale on several PSP NIS games

#1 Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw (6186 posts) -

I know NIS games are super niche, but there's a pretty good sale going on through PSN for several of their better games, including Disgaea 1 & 2, ZHP, and Cladun. If you're interested in some batshit crazy, distinctly Japanese RPG's, I can't recommend them enough. I might be picking up Mana Khemia. Has anyone played it or have any thoughts on it? Thanks.

Yeah! I think these have been going for a few weeks but it is still great for JRPG lovers on the PSP. Disgaea games are running for like $10, right? I want to get Mana Khemia as well, probably will soon.

I bought Dragoneer's Aria for $8 and Phantom Brave The Hermuda Triangle for $10. Which is great because for some reason I have been wanting some PSP games.

@SuperWristBands: Is Dragoneer's Aria any good? I haven't really heard much about it.

Mana Khemia on PSP? I don't recommend it, it's a really really really bad port. It likes to lag every few seconds for no apparant reason.

I thought it was only the UMD version that had those problems. I seem to remember hearing the digital version being fine.

Oh really? In that case, go for it. It's fairly decent.

I've played it for about 20 minutes and got into one fight. It has horribly cheesy (like, the good kind) action moments. It is in full 3D (not like other JRPGs on the PSP where text fills up half the screen) and has voice acting (I'm not sure if voice acting on a PSP is note worthy anymore). The battle was of a very vanilla affair, pick an action from a menu and your character does it, turn based style. It's nice to have something super basic every now and then. The voice acting sounds like it would in a JRPG and maybe/also has Nolan North... sure sounded like him.

I'm interested in playing more.

@SuperWristBands: That's a solid enough recommendation for me. Sometimes, a vanilla turn-based RPG is a nice break. Thanks.
