    Finished it today with a total amount of 8hrs.

    I really enjoyed the anime visuals, gameplay and voice acting in English but the long text boxes were the one thing I usually skipped through so I realise I didn't play Disgaea how I should have.

    The jist of the story:

    Even though I did skip a hella lot dialogue boxes, there was one that stood out (which I've not pointed out before).

    So anyway, it felt like the game ended pretty quickly for me albeit, there are still side quests I could do but not really interested in those.

    Fun game to have on the Switch. :)

    Should it have been longer? The text boxes were pretty boring so I normally skipped them.

    Well, not for 8hrs straight, I'd pick it up now and then. I'm surprised it's only 8hrs even though it felt like a lot more.

    Things I skipped:
    • Text boxes
    • Many in-game cutscene animations
    • etc
    Well, maybe I haven't yet finished it even though I've seen the ending credits. A PS4 Disgaea 5 walkthrough states the game has 16 chapters:

    On the Switch it has different chapter names so it's hard to take this chapter list into comparison. That said, even if it's accurate then why did it show the ending credits?

    That was one of the endings, the Chapter 4 bad ending... A game over, basically.

    Yep, it's my first and seeing the end credits didn't help.

    Thanks. Didn't know it was a 'bad ending' so there's more to it. :)

    Are you crazy ? That's too much!! I won't finish the game like this for 8 hours. It really a waste time. Yeah, I will play my game at least 2 hours a day or less to make my lifestyle healthier, you know. It is best for me to go out for a drinking at a bar, and hanging out with friends, and be social at first. What's happened to your life ?!?! Tone down, boy, tone down, boy. :) Jeez.

    Therefore, try to complete this game 100 percent. So it won't be 8 hours at least. :)

    To my understanding, there are 16, and IRC. They all have 5 stages outside of quest stages and challenge stages. Yeah, it is not 8 hours gameplay, lol.

    Lol, I am like eleven hours in and still not past Episode 3.
    Talk about hurrying your way skipping story and gameplay elements.
    Can't wait to unlock the item world already... Well, whenever I'm out of the office.

    The text boxes take forever so I can't be bothered to go through all of them.

    Quite a few Japanese games I have played seem to want to play credits after every chapter or something.

    Did the controls get better? I played it with the pro controller for a little while during that press thing and playing all those ones on the DS with the touchscreen, or on the PC with a mouse, or the GBA with a nice dpad, seems to have spoiled me a bit.

    I've played numerous strategy RPGs in my time, such as FF Tactics on PS1 long ago (first ever strategy/tactics game), the FFTAs on GBA/DS, recent Fire Emblem games, and even Stella Glow. Yet, I've only finished the first episode of Disgaea 5 Complete (first Disgaea game for me), and I feel overwhelmed by what can be done in it. Others felt straight-forward. This......this is a lot for me to take in.

    Any tips with it?
