Claude asks the leader of the bandit guild, Lycan, where the Baruchel Band’s hideout is. He asks Claude why he wants to know.
“It’ll make me look good.”
>>”I want to protect the public.”
Nuts to the first choice!
Even if that’s how you felt, anyone who cared about their image wouldn’t answer that way, would they?
Lycan: “Ahh. Then I’ll provide you with that info free of charge. It’ll help me out, too if those crazies are gone. If I recall… Baruchel Band’s hideout is an old fortress near Belal Mountain.”
Claude: “Belal Mountain? Thanks, Lycan.”
“Be careful, Captain.”

Adventures in Item Descriptions
Scale Mail: “Not completely to scale.”
Opera Glasses: “See the play without suffering the music.”
Forest Bow: “Ironic, because it’s made of dead trees.”
Opened Soda: “Highly unsanitary.”
Garlic Water: “Why would anyone drink this?” Because they’re Wario?
Bat Soup: “Waiter! There’s soup in my bat!”
Double Slap: “Sorry baby! Why did you make me do that?”
From the “should they really be joking about this?” file.
There’s also a weapon called Father’s Fist. Just thought you should know.
Flick: “Hits so hard your kids will feel it.’
Bastard Sword: “A real jerk at times, but he gets the job done.”
Elven Bow: “A famous elf used it to return a lost ring.” Ooh, is it Link?!
.44 Magnum: “You gotta ask a question – do you feel lucky?”
Serial Axe: “Snap, crackle, pop! You’re dead.”
Spikey Shell: “Jumping on this one is a bad idea.”
The Accursed: “What a horrible night to have a curse.”
Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves here.
The Dream: “Oh, it was all just a dream. Or was it?!”
Confusion: “I’m calm! I’M VERY FREAKING CALM!”
I react much the same way when someone tells me calm down.
Chain Mail: “Will kill you if you don’t pass it on. Wait-!”
First of all, PHEW. That took a long time to finish. Somehow, this VGJ felt like it took more energy than any of the others so far. I’m not entirely sure why because I still like the game, but this fatigue makes me want to think critically about the game. I decided that it’s kind of the opposite of Soul Nomad and the World Eaters in that I like that game’s story more than that of Disgaea 2. However, I like the gameplay in Disgaea 2 better because it’s easier to understand and grind in the game. Continue reading Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days – Final Thoughts
April 4th, 2016: The crew finally found Zenon again.
Tink: “He looks like he is ready for a nap.”
Holy crap, Etna. “You old men are all the same… No stamina. And now us girls have to find our own way to amuse ourselves.”
Zenon: “Altered humans…! Do you truly believe you can defeat me, Overlord Zenon?”
Adell: “I don’t know, but I’m sure we can take out a fake one or two!”
Zenon laughed wickedly. “I shall devour every human conscience!”
Oh, great, Adell. Sure, taunt the fake, egomaniacal, power-hungry Overlord.
Zenon: “Hmph… Once I get the Princess back, I’ll have no more use for this world! I’ll just find another human world to conquer! But don’t worry about that, because you’ll already be dead!”

March 23rd, 2016: Once the crew entered Zenon’s Castle, a pained Zenon appeared before them.
Yukimaru: “My clan shall have its vengeance!”
Zenon: “*Pant* You are here, too. How does everyone know where I live?” You have no idea. :3
Hanako: “He’s all beat up already. Are you sure he’s the last boss?”
Rozalin told the imposter that she would cleanse her father’s legacy by beating him.
Zenon: “Princess… I am your father. I have watched over you ever since you were born.”
Rozalin: “You still persist with your lies! I shall match your shamelessness with mercilessness!”
“Have you forgotten my wealth of affection…? The beautiful mansion I built for you. The finest furniture, crafted just for you. The servants who answer only to you. The bouquet of flowers and gifts that were delivered to you everyday, as a reminder of my affection for you, Princess.”
Rozalin took a step back. “How do you know about that!? You were supposed to be an imposter…” Continue reading Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days – March 23rd, 2016 – April 1st, 2016: Affection
March 11th, 2016: Episode 12: Castle Raid
In the cutscenes before the levels in this chapter, each character ruminates upon their fears and wishes as the final battle looms over them.
Tink: “First Fubuki, and now ze Princess is down. Our situation, she is getting worse.”
Taro: “I hope Princess is OK…”
Adell: “She’s back to herself. That’s all that matters.”
Meanwhile, back at home, Mom noticed that Fubuki must have gone after Zenon again. Rozalin was ready and raring to find him, and Taro and Hanako knew how to get to Zenon’s castle via Gate AX666. Wait, that was important?!
