I wonder... who does have a copy?
Kitsune - 20-5-2004 at 08:45 AM

Don't tell me I'm the only one who has an English copy of La Pucelle... so please, someone say that they do.

I was holding off on playing the game for a while because I was into Samurai Warriors, but now that I finished the story modes and stuff, I can get back into it.

....Heh, I find the idea of converting cuddly forest bears into your party by purifying them amusing.

...oh, and Criox is cool. Yeah, :)


Siegfried - 20-5-2004 at 10:25 AM

Sadly enough, I do believe you are the only one here who has a copy. As soon as I can find the damned game, I will probably play it for a long time.

Oh yeah, and I was wondering...does it have the same level cap as Disgaea?


Eldrac - 20-5-2004 at 12:12 PM

I have this game, I want to make a post about the game mechanics later this game so everyone can learn about it... ^^

Yes. It. Does. :D

Yay!!! :D. Now I wonder if I'll ever play Disgaea with this game out. La Pucelle is right up my alley when it comes to my favourite type of game. (Medieval Fantasy based tactical rpg = :: Drool :: )


Kitsune - 21-5-2004 at 08:43 AM

A little fun tip:

Since there is no penalty for killing characters, (There is only one endgame ending to La Pucelle, and each of the different chapter endings will usually rely on hitting certain event squares anyway.) There is a trick to leveling up a character pretty quick. This requires an area-effect skill for best results.

Anyway, go to a very easy map (like one of the first few) and have everyone assemble in a big group... have the one you want to level up simply... KILL THEM ALL!
:nod:

The character will get exp for every kill. It's also very easy exp. Killing teammates also makes it easier to get into the Dark World...

For best results, have Boss Monsters you have converted in the target range. Boss monsters give almost triple the exp of normal monsters of the same level.

Although, I only recommend this leveling technique late in the game, when you want to earn levels above 1000.


Eldrac - 21-5-2004 at 06:20 PM

Kitsune, how far are you? you make it seem like you were really far, but your first post said you were just starting to play :o


Kitsune - 21-5-2004 at 06:38 PM

Not too far at all, actually. I just beat the first map of the 3rd chapter. You see, I got the guidebook the same day I bought this game. There were a lot of charts and stat lists that were helpful... plus I didn't want to miss any of the good endings (And the one big reason I buy guidebooks is that they are easier to follow than Gamefaqs sometimes, and it has artwork, something I always look forward to in them). Due to that, there are a lot of spoilers in this guide, so be careful. I haven't been playing La Pucelle much, due to other games... but I'll get back on it soon enough.


Eldrac - 21-5-2004 at 06:43 PM

Ok, im on the first stage of chapter 4 trying to beat the optional boss to get the specail ending ^^


Nekobo - 24-5-2004 at 08:19 AM

I bought La Pucelle the second day it was available. Sadly, I haven't had the time of day to really sink into it. I'm also a lazy gamer, too...but it seems like a blast. I've always loved s-rpgs since playing Tactics Ogre.

i dont have a copy T_T


Okor - 15-6-2004 at 05:09 PM

i might get a copy but i heard its not nearly as good as disgaea so i might not and just keep playing disgaea, ill be able to get 1mil atk soon! mwahahahahaha!


Giver_Of_Nitemares - 15-6-2004 at 08:53 PM

my bro(tsuki)has the game


ShadowZero - 1-9-2004 at 01:21 AM

My little brother got it (Little did either of us new it was a NIS game when he bot it. and he even said it looked similar to Disgaea...)
Its a great game!


tira-chan - 25-4-2005 at 04:51 AM

If this page is still alive, I now have the game and I luv it :D!! Prier is sexeh~


McGilroy-Sama - 25-4-2005 at 04:43 PM

I've got one, too...for some weeks now...and I like it even more than PB ^_^


tira-chan - 26-4-2005 at 04:03 AM

I haven't played phantom brave yet, not sure if I should buy it or not... :P


Dionysus - 26-4-2005 at 05:41 AM

I pre-ordered mine when I heard they were going to release it here. It is a very good game and I am glad that I got it. I beat it shortly after getting it (played it constantly). The darkworld is very difficult and I'm not sure how many levels you can go down.

Phantom Brave is a good game, but I feel they rushed it to market. The controls can be frustrating at times.


Makhan - 26-4-2005 at 10:52 AM

100+ hours and you "beat it shortly"? o_o;;


See, this is what I mean when I tell my parents that adults have more free time than us school-going kids! XD

Makhan, what would I do without you?

**chuckles**

My actual playtime on La Pucelle was about 67 hours. I did not devote the same amount of time to it as I did Disgaea.

As to my free time; here is my advice.

Get your college degree. Go out and find a great paying job. Publish a few things here and there. Then retire early with a fairly good income...and start enjoying what life has to offer!:innangel:


Vyers - 27-4-2005 at 10:49 AM

tira-chan - 28-4-2005 at 04:02 AM

I think I have just over 60ish hours on La Pucelle now, tho my Disgaea file has well over 400 o_0

I still can't decide which i like more... I really like Prier as a character, which may be why I enjoy La Pucelle so much. Tho I don't like how you can't save in teh dark world, and that you can't seem to buy basic items, such as MP and HP fillers. I've found a few, thru purifications and such, but they've been far between and few...


McGilroy-Sama - 28-4-2005 at 04:51 AM

Well, I like them both the same, but Disgaea is "better" ^_~


Makhan - 28-4-2005 at 10:34 AM

Have you happened to see any Nexium commercials over in Deutschland, McGilroy?

That just reminded me a lot of one of them.

400 hours of disgaea? what have you been doing!? I've got a level 7000 Laharl, every good piece of equipment lvl 100 and a lot of specialists, not too mention playing through 8 cycles. this only took me 135 hours. Atleast your getting your money's worth.


Vyers - 25-5-2005 at 05:16 PM

Some people just take ages to level up (Me included). Its why we play games, to waste time!!!

I don't just power-level one character like some people, so don't judge me.

I have a well balanced team, not just one over powered player. I could've done the same thing you did., but that's not fun to me. :whaeva:


Etna - 26-5-2005 at 05:31 AM

I would say a well balanced team works good,instead of just an over powered player.Thats the type of stragedy I use in Disgaea,thats why it takes me longer to level,lol. Its a slow process but it works out in the end.


McGilroy-Sama - 26-5-2005 at 06:32 AM

I want abalanced team as well, but whatever I do, my Laharl always is five times as strong as the others ^^"

But I DO have a nice team...*sniff*


tira-chan - 27-5-2005 at 05:46 AM

I think Prier and my Shogun were the strongest charas in my Disgaea file (hard to remember since I haven't played in a while)-- I find the shogun to be much more powerful than Laharl too-- her attributes are higher (percentage-wise) in almost every respect/category if I remember correctly. She doesn't have his special techs of course, but equipped with a yoshitsuna, it doesn't matter too much I think ^^


McGilroy-Sama - 27-5-2005 at 05:49 AM

My Shogun, Motoko, is my second-strongest character as well...but Laharl will be the leader, he's the prince, after all! XD


Etna - 27-5-2005 at 05:52 AM

Alright alright.. back on topic.


Laharl - 3-6-2005 at 11:56 AM

i forgot to mention i have the highest class of each monster at lvl 9999. There's nothing wrong with a super character, standard Baal can't even hurt me, even at lvl9999, prinny baal only kills me with pringer beam which still manages to do 4 million even i've more defense than he has attack at lvl9999, nothing else in the game is even worth mentioning. I level up a space pirate to lvl1300 and priere to lvl2300

Ok, ok you can stop bragging and tooting your horn- this is a La Pucelle Tactics topic here anyway ya know e_e


Vyers - 4-6-2005 at 01:23 PM

lol. I have been playing all of 10 hours o_O. I didin't have much time. But now it's the holidays... :). I take it everyone has a copy now...?


tira-chan - 5-6-2005 at 06:33 AM

I most certainly do ^^
I have just a lil over 100 hours on my game now, and I feel like I'm behind since this one guy on gamefaqs.com got demon/evil Prier in 120 hours, and I'm not anywhere close to that ^^;


Laharl - 8-6-2005 at 11:55 AM

i've been playing La Pucelle for about six hours, i've mainly been trying 100% Tales of Symphona (damn that Cursed Book!)


Mid-boss_fan - 14-6-2005 at 07:14 PM

Yeah. I have it!

*Fantisizes about Croix-kun......* Ahhh.....


Tsuki - 14-6-2005 at 08:52 PM

Lol I played it somemore yesterday then got bored with it.My levels still suck except for my Salade,Dark Eclair(I detest regular her),and then my Hanya! Those things are awesome.Sadly,you can only capture them in the Demon World,and they're a rare find too.

I have 4 Haniwas :D all different. The first one I caught was Rev. Haniwa- he looks like a furry yellow meatball. Then I got Turbo Haniwa- looks like a red gumball with lil eyes. Next was Haniwa Style-- he's white and oval shaped with lil stubby arms, and a yellow stripe around his dark eyes. And he's got a halo ^^ And just tonite I picked up Haniwa #2-- he's blue with pink eyes and a lil attenae in the center of his head. He's got the coveted "Lord Hani" tech, which was the main reason I caught him >D

Levels-wise, Prier beats out everyone in my party 2 to 1. She's level 267-- my next closest chara is a captured fire guy who's 152 or 153. Dark Eclair and Homard are close behind him, and everyone else is 120 or less ^^; This one faq I read said to use Salade as the primary attacker, and he is strong, but he doesn't have any attacks that hit multiple enemies, and he learns magic very slowly =/ So I dunno about using him like that. Prier is my #1 chara in all stats just about, tho my fire guy has very high INT and RES.


Tsuki - 15-6-2005 at 05:02 PM

Rofl.I just got Prier to hit level 30 last night XD I guess I just sped through the game waaay too fast.

I have my Haniwa Hanya hee's silver and look like....Suezo from monster rancher XD Cept he has two black dots for eyes.I love the way he atttacks! He hops up to them and he suddenly has an arm the gets huge and karate chops em.It's funny.I killed the crab demon with one XD

Yah, I know I hate to be spoiled with a game/anime/etc. so unless you wanna spoiler, I can't tell ya teh specifics~ Don't spend a huge amount of time leveling him tho either. I won't say more than that unless you wanna know.


Mid-boss_fan - 17-6-2005 at 01:31 AM

I WANNA KNOW MORE INFO ABOUT MY SWEET CROIX-KUN!!!!!


tira-chan - 17-6-2005 at 06:45 AM

So you don't mind story spoilers?? *last check*


Laharl - 17-6-2005 at 09:55 AM

Yes!!! Start a topic the story if you want to spoli it.


~Prince Laharl~ - 17-6-2005 at 10:35 AM

I have La Pucelle Tactics, Disgaea Hour of Darkness, and Phantom Brave. I'll probably play a bit more of Disgaea. I think it's the most fun. Then Phantom Brave. Then I'll continue on La Pucelle. It's a bit slow but not bad really.


tira-chan - 21-6-2005 at 05:37 AM

I made a new topic for spoilers on this issue if anyone is interested~ :B


Kitsaeraelin - 15-8-2005 at 02:49 AM

I do own a copy of La Pucelle and Disgaea. I have plans to buy Makai Kingdom when it becomes available commonplace and semi-affordable (if it is, I can't get out of the house right now).

I do have a question about Phantom Brave. Is it a good game, worth checking into and buying?


zell - 15-8-2005 at 06:42 PM

is lapucell tactics like a kid version of final fantasy tactics......


tira-chan - 16-8-2005 at 05:38 AM

I haven't played phantom brave yet, tho my brother did buy it. I've been playing La Pucelle more, naturally.

to zelda:
What do you mean a kid version?? o.o It's a fairly simple game- to beat the normal, final boss you only have to be about level 100- but there's a few side stories and hidden items to look for. Plus the charas are so cute :D

i heard la pucelle tactics was a kiddie version of ff tactics


Kitsaeraelin - 16-8-2005 at 09:00 PM

Well, I doubt that it is a kid version of FF tactics.

La Pucelle is a little lighter hearted than Disgaea, but that's a good thing for the game.


Tsuki - 17-8-2005 at 03:14 AM

Yeah.I prefer FFT much more though.


zell - 17-8-2005 at 03:58 AM

yup, i have too agree, fft seems original.....but advance wars is the best tactics game!


Laharl - 17-8-2005 at 11:22 AM

FFT has got to be infinity better than FFTA for me to like it, Disgaea is my favourite SRPG, then La PuCELLE then Phantom Brave., looking foward to Makai kingdom too


tira-chan - 18-8-2005 at 06:41 AM

Don't be decieved~ La Pucelle gets rather dark at parts, especially concerning Croix and his past.
There were certainly some parts in teh story that I didn't expect...


Laharl - 20-8-2005 at 12:10 PM

Atleast you didn't spoil those too j/k.

And for Zell, If La Pucelle is "kiddy", how do you describe games like Rugrats in Paris, other than shite.


Kitsaeraelin - 20-8-2005 at 09:22 PM

My thoughts exactly, Laharl.

If La Pucelle is for the "kiddies", what about the nickelodeon games that keep coming out and disgracing the name of video gaming.


tira-chan - 21-8-2005 at 07:33 AM

I doubt they'd ever count La Pucelle as kiddy for the fact that it's got !!!OMFG*RELIGION*OMG!!!! in it!!!!

As mentioned in another thread (i think concerning anime censoring)- that game wouldn't fly as being safe for kids since it talks about religion and we have to be politically correct at all times, children!!

Plus, as mentioned- it gets pretty dark and deep later on o.o;


Laharl - 22-8-2005 at 11:23 AM

metabollically challenged-dead
-the politically correct handbook

the censors are real arseholes, it's either too kiddy or too violent.


Kitsaeraelin - 24-8-2005 at 05:40 AM

Agreed on that point then Laharl. Still, if it came to either too kiddy or too violent, I think we'd all take the "too violent" games, no?


Groove Zombie - 24-8-2005 at 05:50 AM

Well... the most played games in my Rack-O'-Gaming (TM) are DMC3, God of War, MGS 3, Tenchu 3, and Resident Evil 3... so no, I despise blood and gore... roit. :D

More on topic, yeah, I got the impresson from most people (since I have yet to play La Pucelle very much,) that the story was far more serious than Disgaea and the others. So aside from the graphics, there's not much of a "kiddy" quality to the game.

Edit: Wow... I just realized I have a lot of games that are #3 in their respective serieseses... serieses... seriei... serie-- awwww screw it. Their respecitive series.


Kitsaeraelin - 24-8-2005 at 06:05 AM

I don't own any of the really gory, bloody games. But I'm not into the kiddie games either.

And back to the topic, I do agree with you there Zombie. La Pucelle's storyline was a good deal more serious than Disgaea and MK. (haven't played PB yet, so I can't say about that)

And the graphics were only slightly "kiddie" style.


Alexander - 24-8-2005 at 11:44 AM

Well I have pal version^^
Do the other version have a multi language because this kind stuff i have been hearing??
the pal version dont have multi language....
La pucelle wasnt very popular game when it come to finland^^


ArskaTheMan - 24-8-2005 at 11:49 AM

Phantom Brave's story line is the best so far.
But La pucelles is very good also.


tira-chan - 24-8-2005 at 06:46 PM

The US release of La Pucelle lets you choose english or japanese dialogue, same as Disgaea and Phantom Brave. Tho in disgaea you still hear the main charas' voices in english in battle scenes, regardless of what setting it's on :b

I like that in La Pucelle when you set it on japanese, it's always in japanese, in battle scenes and in the storyline scenes ^^

I think what makes La Pucelle *look* kinda kiddy is that the sprites are very cute, and there's lots of pretty, pastel colors everywhere. Even most of the enemies (especially early on) are quite cute. But you can't always judge a game solely on its looks!


Alexander - 24-8-2005 at 08:16 PM

You are so lucky to have multi language on it^^

I have to play it whit english language^^


Kitsaeraelin - 24-8-2005 at 08:51 PM

Yeah, even if I can't understand what they're saying (besides looking at the text box for the translation-thing) it sounds cool.

I generally play it on the English mode though.


Alexander - 24-8-2005 at 08:56 PM

Well... Homard sounds like French Gentleman not Sky pirate captain^^ and Noir sounds like hes Drunk^^

But other voices are fine in Englis language^^


Kitsaeraelin - 24-8-2005 at 09:22 PM

And that's what makes it great. It sounds so off from what you think them to be. It's hilarious to hear something completely different come from the character.

Getting back to topic though, I don't think La pucelle is as popular as the rest of the NIS games released throughout the world.


Alexander - 24-8-2005 at 09:27 PM

yep I think so too I bought it 19.80€ NEW!!!

and yes in here finland is not have same warm welcome that Disgaea and Phantom brave have^^


Kitsaeraelin - 24-8-2005 at 09:50 PM

Maybe because it doesn't have that initial demon thing happening that it seems unpopular. After all, from the cover it looks like some sort of "normal" game where only humans are involved.


Alexander - 24-8-2005 at 10:00 PM

Well La pucelle has in here finland coolest packaking. Disgaea´s and phantom braves pack are so horrible when we look for the American Packaking^^


ArskaTheMan - 24-8-2005 at 10:22 PM

I wonder what kind of packaking Makai kingdom will be given here...
I hope as good as La pucelle.


Alexander - 24-8-2005 at 10:31 PM

Well when you know Koei I think its only zeta in that picture and Makai kingdom text^^


ArskaTheMan - 24-8-2005 at 10:34 PM

Well if it's a GOOD pic then I would'nt mind.
But there is the risk....


Kitsaeraelin - 25-8-2005 at 03:59 AM

Ehh, from what I am looking at my own copy of it, it's a slightly strange looking picture. Nice closeup of Zetta with an evil looking smile and the title usually placed where it normally is.

@Alex: What do you mean the covering for Disgaea sucked? I liked that cover.


ArskaTheMan - 25-8-2005 at 06:31 AM

Yes I know the amerikan version cover and it's pretty cool. But we probaably get something uncool...


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 09:56 AM

Yeah like our phantom brave http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P/B0007D1W34.02.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

its soooo lame^^


Laharl - 25-8-2005 at 11:43 AM

We get all the best covers i prefer the pal cover to disgaea, PB and La Pucelle to the NTSC


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 11:56 AM

Yes and we crappiest^^


Laharl - 25-8-2005 at 11:59 AM

if you r from Finland, you should get the pal shouldn't you, i'm from the uk and got the pal covers and prefer them to the NTSC


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 12:10 PM

Oh sorry i mis understandet^^
Well La pucelle pal version have cool covers^^


Laharl - 25-8-2005 at 12:41 PM

no problem, anyway it's the game that counts not the cover.


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 01:24 PM

Yeah your right


ArskaTheMan - 25-8-2005 at 01:47 PM

Thats so rigth.

But have anyone seen MEGAMAN X8 pal cover? God in heaven....

Oh you mean this^^

Kitsaeraelin - 25-8-2005 at 05:10 PM

I did not know that when games were shipped elsewhere from their origin that the covering and the like changed. O.O


That I suppose could have some effect on who'd buy the game offhand just by looking at the cover.


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 07:33 PM

Yes they effect only those peopeles who dont kinow nothing about that game^^


Kitsaeraelin - 25-8-2005 at 07:48 PM

Like me. :D

I didn't read a whole lot about La Pucelle but bought it anyways. Tis a decent game, although frustrating at times.


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 07:55 PM

Yah sometimes I just buy some games because of the cover^^

In finland we have to be very carefully, because they might be good games in the awfull covers^^


Kitsaeraelin - 25-8-2005 at 08:43 PM

Well, that's why we read about companies and products they come out with. You could also rent the games before buying, right? Some games aren't worth the cash, but you gotta try them before knowing.


ArskaTheMan - 25-8-2005 at 08:44 PM

Yup.
Bot here, there arent many places that rent games.


Kitsaeraelin - 25-8-2005 at 08:47 PM

Bummer for you guys. There's always game review magazines then right? Those also work for when choosing games to get. TV commercials lie...horribly.

On a side note of sorts, do you people have Wal-Mart over there? That or any sort of place for the walk through guides for games. Those are great to learn all about a game and helps you decide if you want it or not. Like La Pucelle. I found that in a magazine and thought it looked good, so I bought it.


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 08:49 PM

Well i dont know any places here who rent games?
I know one shop wher you can test games before you buy it^^


ArskaTheMan - 25-8-2005 at 08:53 PM

Wal-Mart? Never heard of it.


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 09:00 PM

Well its a little store^^

but back to the topic ^^

I think europeans La pucelle tactics covers ar cool^^ http://www.gamesmarket.com.au/images/ProductImages/gmp1469.jpg


ArskaTheMan - 25-8-2005 at 09:03 PM

Yes, it's the same as japanese. (I think)


Groove Zombie - 25-8-2005 at 09:04 PM

You mean the evil power of Wal-mart has yet to make it's way to Finland? THANK GOD. Be glad it hasn't then.


ArskaTheMan - 25-8-2005 at 09:06 PM

Evil power? Could you explain?


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 09:07 PM

yup thanks to Koei for that^^
but the did stole our dual-audio ^^

Well what ever you cant optain anything if you dont sacrifase something^^


Kitsaeraelin - 25-8-2005 at 09:10 PM

Back on topic though, your guys' La pucelle cover is better than ours in my opinion. Yours has more action in it.


ArskaTheMan - 25-8-2005 at 09:12 PM

Yeah, one of the few good covers of Koie.


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 09:16 PM

Well i think stubidest thing is that they censur Croix sigarette and all the Crusifix in that game...

Only japanese version is Uncensoret^^


ArskaTheMan - 25-8-2005 at 09:20 PM

Yeah, thats so stupid. Why for gods sake?


Kitsaeraelin - 25-8-2005 at 09:22 PM

Well, it probably wouldn't be very good for business if they promoted smoking, and heaven forbid if any games now show preference of religion.


ArskaTheMan - 25-8-2005 at 09:25 PM

But for gods sake its an game.


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 09:26 PM

Well thy cant chance that fact, that that games Idea is religion^^

And why they dont censor the church?


Kitsaeraelin - 25-8-2005 at 09:28 PM

I know, I don't like it either, but they can show the church because they don't specifically state what type of church it is. Religion and Morals are a touchy subject nowadays.


ArskaTheMan - 25-8-2005 at 09:30 PM

Well you got an point there.
I hope they don't change anything on Makai kingdom.


Alexander - 25-8-2005 at 09:33 PM

Well they dont because are version is identic whit amerikan version only one thing Koei can rip of and thats the Dual-audio^^


tira-chan - 26-8-2005 at 05:30 AM

I like the original packaging for La Pucelle over the US version~ the us version looks kinda dopey. And there's like a different art style to Prier-- her face looks weird o.o

and yes, walmart=evil

Most of em in my area are so ghetto >B They're dirty, disorganized and messy, and most people that shop there are on welfare. plus the employees are morons. I went there to buy ONE thing and it took me a half hour almost to get out of the checkout line x_x


Laharl - 26-8-2005 at 11:20 AM

Wal Mart own Asda in the uk which happens to be the biggest supermarket company here.

I bought La Pucelle because 1. disgaea was so good and 2. i was so disapointed with phantom Brave


ArskaTheMan - 26-8-2005 at 01:23 PM

Well if that's true then Im happy it doesn't appear here.


Groove Zombie - 26-8-2005 at 03:28 PM

Wal-Mart is the Microsoft of retail stores. Yes, that EVIL.

Oh, and I started playing LP again... it still seems to put me to sleep sometimes, but I finally got around to getting a bear and he's awesome.


Vyers - 26-8-2005 at 04:16 PM

I really don't see the point of censorship. You're bound to find out about unsavoury topics sooner or later, and a few pixels showing a cigarette really don't amount to much do they? I really wish more games like Megami Tensei would make it over here, but alas it seems only games with threadbare 'save the world from evil' are released. Sod righteousness, we want evil!

*Ahem* back on topic, how do you guys level up? I slaughter my party like there's no tomorrow, 'coz they don't complain and it gets me up a few levels (fairly) quickly.


tira-chan - 27-8-2005 at 04:55 AM

I fart around in dark world to level up mostly, and cave of trials stage 5~ But it's pretty slow-going =/


Laharl - 27-8-2005 at 11:18 AM

do what Vyers does

"EAT BATON CULOTTE!!!I SAID EAT IT!!!!!"


Kitsaeraelin - 29-8-2005 at 09:01 AM

Rofl!

I thought it was a way to get Alouette back for all the times that she whacked Prier on the head. XD

Seriously though, there HAS to be an easier way to level up for beginners. (like me)


tira-chan - 29-8-2005 at 08:37 PM

Killing Culotte and Alouette would be pointless for me since they're such wusses :p


Kitsaeraelin - 30-8-2005 at 06:27 AM

I get that feeling a lot too. Except with them AND Croix. :(


ArskaTheMan - 30-8-2005 at 06:58 AM

Never thougth that you could do that. O.O


Alexander - 30-8-2005 at 09:31 AM

Well i never kill my units any game on purpose^^


ArskaTheMan - 30-8-2005 at 10:59 AM

I can`t remeber how many times I killed flonne & gordon in disgaea. I have killed culotte now 28 times. *He`s so useless...)


Kitsaeraelin - 30-8-2005 at 07:31 PM

Yeah, in La pucelle you can, since there's only one ending. In other ones it can affect what kind of ending you get.

So it's probably for the better that you kill your buddies to help level up. ^^


Alexander - 30-8-2005 at 08:52 PM

Well Im so Nis freak that i thinks that those characters have feelings so i cant kill them whitout purpose....

I think is just too cruel^^


Kitsaeraelin - 30-8-2005 at 08:58 PM

Same here, although I favor the living and continuing part of the game. *absolutely hates to see party beaten senseless by forest animals*

Getting back to the more direct topic, perhaps NIS didn't think that La Pucelle would be very popular, since I do believe that it did come out in Japan before Disgaea. So La Pucelle may have been an experimental test to see how the public would respond before making too many copies.


ArskaTheMan - 30-8-2005 at 09:03 PM

That's probably it. But man Disgaea did an breaktrougth...


Kitsaeraelin - 30-8-2005 at 09:11 PM

I bet they probably had a bunch of requests to make a more demonic based game of the same kind.

And yes, Disgaea was a breakthrough. Although La pucelle isn't such a bad game in its own aspect.


tira-chan - 31-8-2005 at 05:46 AM

La Pucelle was a prequel to Disgaea, and was released first in Japan. That's obvious since Prier is normal in La Pucelle, but then a demon overlord in Disgaea >D

Somewhere along the line she decided the whole church thing just wasn't gonna work, apparently~ lol >D

I find it kinda odd tho~ the graphics in La Pucelle seem cleaner than Disgaea, and the game itself seems to flow more smoothly. The images on screen in La Pucelle seem more clear and sharp, while Disgaea looks a bit fuzzy to me. I checked somethin on my Disgaea file a week or so ago after playing lots of La Pucelle, and the control, sound and graphics all seemed off to me O.o


Groove Zombie - 31-8-2005 at 06:03 AM

I think the graphics get a little worse with every game, actually. The only exception is MK, as it seems a little better than PB, but not as good as Disgaea. I haven't noticed the sound or control... but you could be right, I'm not sure. I don't play enough LP to be completely sure.


Kitsaeraelin - 1-9-2005 at 06:37 AM

Ehh, probably due to the demand and ultra coolness of the demonic realm. That's what I can guess. They were probably in more of a rush to release the more popular sounding demon based games, Disgaea and now MK. I dunno what PB is about though, so I can't say anything for or against it there. xP


Laharl - 2-9-2005 at 12:43 PM

La Pucelle tells you how many times you've killed yuor allies? I've killed all my allie son Devils Stomach and i've done the stage 80 odd times


Kitsaeraelin - 3-9-2005 at 07:47 AM

Nah, I don't think it does, since you only have one ending to get. I don't honestly think it keeps track of it. And if it does, it isn't an important factor.


Laharl - 3-9-2005 at 11:59 AM

it's nice to know though, it's nice when a game keeps track of useless information


Kitsaeraelin - 4-9-2005 at 08:31 AM

True, unless it keeps track of useless info that is hidden from you. >:/

Like a happiness rating. (pokemon, what can I say. It was the first stupid example I thought of. )


Laharl - 5-9-2005 at 10:54 AM

don't mock pokemon, childish and stupid as it is, that was the first real sleep depriver i played, probably have a 1000 hours of game play over all my carts.

bot, disgaea was indeed a breakthrough, imo it pisses on the other srpgs especially those not done by NIS, La Pucelle has come closest, but it's still not as good, Makai Kingdom might though


Kitsaeraelin - 6-9-2005 at 01:13 AM

I'm not mocking it. I just didn't like how it didn't show you how happy/unhappy your pokemon was with you. Especially when it came to evolving the eevee (day or night wise)

Agreed that Disgaea is a huge breakthrough for games of its genre.

And yes, Makai Kingdom comes close, if not matches Disgaea on most levels of gameplay aspect.


tira-chan - 6-9-2005 at 06:10 AM

I've thought of getting makai kingdom, but I'm too cheap to pay 50$ for a game. I always figure if I wait long enough it will get cheaper >D

La Pucelle and Phantom Brave did!! Besides which, most of my time lately has been devoted to FMA 2 game :D (Tho I don't have a PS2 at the moment *sob* )


Kitsaeraelin - 6-9-2005 at 07:06 AM

lol, I only have the first FMA game for PS2.

And MK is fairly well worth the $$ needed, although one does not like the lift and throw system. Besides, I got mine for like 35-40 ish. Gotta love the MVP discounts.


Laharl - 6-9-2005 at 10:26 AM

i'm usually a cheapdskate too usually, bought Disgaea for £25, La Pucelle for £30 and i payed the full £40 for Phantom Brave, Disgaea is noly £15 now that is a real bargain!


Wolfos - 7-9-2005 at 02:42 AM

Disgaea for me cost £20
Phantom Brave Cost around £25
And Tactics cost me just under £30

Odd how that worked out O_O


Laharl - 7-9-2005 at 10:42 AM

i probably could have la pucelle and phantom brave cheaper, but they were the only copies i could find, especially la pucelle


tira-chan - 9-9-2005 at 04:47 AM

La Pucelle and Phantom Brave were 20$ each, Disgaea was 50$. La Pucelle is the only one I own tho technically :p my brother owns the other 2.

I've considered getting Makai kingdom, but 50$ is just too much for a game~ unless it's rare.


Kitsaeraelin - 9-9-2005 at 07:30 AM

I like Makai Kingdom. Maybe not as good as Disgaea, but still a good game. :nod:

I'm seeing it discounted already for $30-40. The story is kind of weak and definitely not as good as Disgaea, but the battle system is a lot of fun. It's very short and won't take you long to finish. But then there are the hidden characters that you have to level up for.

Despite it's short comings, I would recommend this game highly and say that it is a cut above both La Pucelle and Phantom Brave.


omni - 10-9-2005 at 05:27 AM

Well, that's not saying a huge amount, considering that we're talking about Nippon Ichi here. Phantom Brave and La Pucelle were definitely much weaker than Disgaea... Still, I wish I actually owned them, rather than having simply borrowed them. Eh, the life of an impoverished Yalie. What're you gonna do? ::sigh::

I agree with Dio here, because I also am seeing it discounted at the $30-40 level. And although short and the story a tad weak, still a good game worth buying.


tira-chan - 13-9-2005 at 05:39 AM

I may need to shop around a bit then~ :B

But then I still have to finish FMA 2 and get Maou status for Prier :d


Kitsaeraelin - 13-9-2005 at 05:43 AM

Well, happy shopping when you get the chance. ^^

And do enjoy the game, for it's pretty well worth the $$.


Laharl - 14-9-2005 at 10:01 AM

still waiting for MK, everything on La Pucelle is going to plan even if it's getting boring.


FallenAngelV - 24-10-2005 at 12:05 AM

*raises hand* Yes, I have an English copy. Yes, I love it to death. No, I haven't completed it yet, despite having a squad of 8 level 200 story characters.


Laharl - 25-10-2005 at 02:24 PM

how have you not finished the game, i did it with 3 lvl 80 characters.


LANCE - 8-2-2007 at 04:39 PM

i have the English copy.... T-T
but i want the NEW+ !!! U.U
Homard!!!! noooooooooooooo!!!! >_<


Melenia - 6-6-2007 at 12:45 PM

i have an english copy and i payed $50 for it
*has no regrets* at least you chan change the Voices anytime you want xD


David - 17-6-2007 at 04:33 AM

Phantom Brave was probably my cheapest PS2 game in my entire collection.

Lapucelle 30$
Disgaea 25$
Phantom Brave 10$
Makai Kingdom 45$
Disgaea 2 50$ - new

Disgaea 2 was the only one I actually got new. Lapucelle & Makai Kingdom I got off Ebay, their prices were a bit higher.
Phantom Brave I found in the EB games used bin. And disgaea I bought from a friend after he took a hammer to his PS2.


Princess Maharl - 17-6-2007 at 08:02 PM

I got it now, and I love it. I gave 64$ for it.


tira-chan - 18-6-2007 at 05:46 AM

Wow, the most I see La Pucelle for nowadays is about 20$ (and even cheaper on ebay). Tho in Norway I'm guessing you must need a different version than the US one...?


Laharl - 18-6-2007 at 02:43 PM

^Norway needs PAL, the PAL La Pucelle is better than NTSC on the grounds of all the bonus junk you get (such as New game+) and it'd probably be cheaper than a US import.


Groove Zombie - 19-6-2007 at 06:29 PM

Man, N1 games were some of the few I've ever payed full price for.

Disgaea - $50
Disgaea 2 - $50, plus the guide was $18-$20 I think
Phantom Brave - I think it was $40
Makai Kingdom - Preordered even, $50, $65 with the guide
La Pucelle - Bought it the week it came out. $50

I feel like a schmuck.

My brother bought the first Disgaea, but it's essentially my game now, with how much I've played it xD (He paid full price $50 I think).
I bought La Pucelle myself for $20, and
Disgaea 2 for the full $50 the first day it was available. I got the guide book for xmas, so i paid nothing for that =D

My brother's got phantom brave, tho I've never played it.
I've seen makai kingdom, used, at EB, but wasn't sure if I really wanted it or not.

you think you payed alot for them? here's what i payed:

Disgaea £25 ($50)
Disgaea 2 £35 ($70)
Phantom Brave £40 ($80)
La Pucelle £30 ($60)
Makai Kingdom £35 ($70)

admittedly you can take about £70 off that total thanks to the wonders of trade ins


David - 28-6-2007 at 04:08 AM

Jeez dude. I guess having more valuable money has drawbacks? *scratches my head confused.*


devildood7 - 4-7-2007 at 12:43 AM

whoa!

I have new la pucelle tactics 24$
Disgaea 32$ with shipping and handling new thatnks to amazon.com;)
No phantom brave...
Disgaea 2 uhmm my bro got it so im not sure.....but its still in its factory wrap and he won't open it, i think he's doing it to drive me insane... Ohh well.

when you look at it like that yes, my job pays the equilivent of nearly $11 an hour so its not that much.

If i order stuff from the US, i pay next to nothing for it, which is great, half the amount of dollars and that's what i pay in £.

The game tend to drop in price after a while to £20ish, which still converts to an unimpressive $40ish


David - 5-7-2007 at 09:03 AM

Around here you gotta do some grueling factory work and risk severing body parts to make 11$/hr. So in my eyes thats pretty damn good. ( Most jobs pay 6.80-8.50$.... I worked in the manual labor thing at Whirlpool for like 8.50$ when co workers were making upwards of 10-15$/hr for the same job.)


But your right paying 40$ for games AFTER the price drops is crap.


Laharl - 5-7-2007 at 11:18 PM

shit man, the minimum wage over here is something like £4.20 for over 18s, i do pretty simple barwork for £5.35 an hour (pretty much double £ for $ equilivent), my house mate works in a call centre for £11 an hour. that said it is an absolute twat to get a job in this country, i really need a second one...

yeah...uh... the topic....La Pucelle is like STILL £30 over here


David - 11-7-2007 at 12:25 AM

I see so you make alot of money in compairison but the price for your products like game copys goes up too. By an unreasonable ammount. I dont think theres any way for us to get games for any cheaper than we do it seems.


Etna_In_Netherland - 21-7-2007 at 12:07 PM

I got a brand-new copy of La Pucelle last month.... >>; It cost about $30, But I didn't pay for it my grandma did. It was a present because I just finished Middle School. I love La Pucelle. It's my favorite compared to PB (which I LOVE)

I know this is off topic, but My Disgaea was $45 used. My Disgaea 2 was $55, I had preordered it from my EBgames, so that cost $5 extra dollars. and my Makai Kingdom and Phantom Brave were both $15.

Hmm, thats odd, the EB games here counts the 5$ to preorder as part of the payment. Of course I always pay 5$ extra for a no matter what happens to it you'll get a new copy warranty.

Hah which I used. My disc got scuffed or something by my hungry old PS2 and I took it back for a refund. But whats funnyer is I got another 5$ warranty on the next copy. Then took back a defective copy my friend got from Walmart. (Which he had already replaced.) And they accepted it and gave me another new copy. XD So I got my first one for 5$ extra but my 2nd 2 copies only cost me 10$ for both. Granted it was a dirty trick. But none the less, a smart ass one.

Don't get caught stealing kids! I am not a good example to fallow.


Netherworld Wanderer - 23-7-2007 at 10:43 PM

Wow, after reading all of that, I guess I should consider myself lucky.

I happened to find a copy of La Pucelle at an old retail store for 18 bucks.

Not to go too far off topic, but I found HoD for $39.99 and D2:CM for $35, but I could've gotten D2 for $29 if I'd looked around a bit more. That, and I know where I can grab a copy of PB for $29.


hotspot - 2-1-2008 at 04:54 AM

I have la pucelle tactics, i have had it for almost a year, i havent beaten it yet though, i got stuck on a hard boss that is on homards ship that you have to fight.
la pucelle tactics is my second tactics game ( the first tactic game i got was suikoden tactics)
la pucelle tactics is one of my favorite games.


David - 4-1-2008 at 04:48 PM

Hmm sounds like you're stuck at the Demon Lord. I remember that being a pretty hard fight if you use a conservative tactical style like me. Its best to rush him all out as fast as you can. Of course if you're under leveled I don't think you can even back out and do some training.


clockwork_prinny - 10-5-2011 at 11:06 AM

I own this game. In English. But I haven't finished it yet. I do <3 it though.
