The story behind Time and Eternity's revolutionary look

Dood: 10 million hours of Disgaea 3 have been played

Players have gone through 10 million play hours of Disgaea 3: Absense of Detention, says Nippon Ichi. That is...that's insane! I wouldn't be surprised if this breaks down to each player playing 100 hours or more. Disgaea 3 came out as a lau...   read
