I'm very happy to announce that I've finally broken down the wall and have completed Episode 4 in Disgaea PSP!! It took the creation of a new party member, about 2 hours of grinding to level her up, and a couple more hours to round everyone up a level or two before I took the end of Episode 4 head on.
From this point on, everything won't feel like deja vu anymore, since it's around here where I'll start tracing my steps I took last during my first go at the game. Hopefully, I'll barrel through the upcoming walls ahead.
Yeah, I know it's not a completed game, but hey...I'll take my victories when I can.
