Disgaea 7 review

System: Switch
Release date: October 3, 2023
Developer: Nippon Ichi Software
Publisher: NIS America

Disgaea games have always been a bit overwhelming. Their nonsensical plots, zany casts, and seemingly impenetrable walls of systems upon systems that have stats going into the millions and damage into the quadrillions can make them seem unapproachable to newcomers at the best of times. Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless, the latest in the long-running series, shares the same foibles as its predecessors to varying degrees, but is by far the most accessible game in the series to date, and is an easy recommendation to make for anyone looking to sink their teeth into an experience that never takes itself too seriously but offers strategic depth easily on par with the best the genre has to offer.

Yet another collaboration has just dropped in Minecraft, and players can now obtain DLC known as Nerf World.

With the DLC, players can battle with others online in four arenas that are themed around the dimensions of the Minecraft universe: the Overworld, the Nether, and the End. In the fourth one, it’s a Nerf arena. Each one can be accessed from the central hub, and this area also houses a training area. Only the Overworld will be initially unlocked, but the others can be acquired by completing certain challenges.
