Weird game name...

Sometimes I wonder where they get the game names that they have.

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness.

So Ben... I really wasn't ripping on the game. Amanda is definitely right that I feel Afternoon of Darkness somewhat non-engaging. It is definitely not something that makes want to save the world as the world will be fine by dinner anyway.

Actually, Afternoon of Darkness isn't a terrible name for a game that involves demonic penguins and a pre-pubescent demon trying to take over hell. (At least that's what the first Disgaea was about.) It was definitely one of the weirder Japanese games I've played. Of course, it's nothing compared with the weirdness that is Katamari.
