From the description I thought the thread would be about this lovely lady.

No subtitles, but the video description should tell you enough to get by.

Why? They're fun and addictive. Disgaea ain't exactly an impenetrable grand strategy game or anything, it's quite easy to get into and it's light hearted and humorous so it's worth checking out :)

The best comment about that I saw is that she's actually got the requisite time to play Disgaea.

Thanks for sharing this! This is great - a gamer with 40 years of experience. I wish she was a Racketboy member.
