The Disgaea PC release is a bit of a mess
Nippon Ichi’s strategy RPG Disgaea is finally available on PC, but it seems the Steam release is a bit of a mess.
If you were excited to finally play Disgaea on PC, you may want to wait a bit. Players are reporting a number of issues relating to graphics and performance in the new version.
Many reports state that the game has trouble performing on high-end PCs. Destructoid and PC Gamer have experienced numerous issues relating to framerate, crashes and major graphical problems.
Despite its evident problems the game currently has mostly positive reviews on Steam, so it may run just fine on some systems.

Posting in the Steam forums, publisher NIS America has said it is aware of the problems and plans to address them with a future update.
“We spent a total of ten months on researching and developing this game for PC users, two months of which were spent on rigorous testing. However, we have been made aware of the fact that some of our customers have been experiencing issues when playing the game,” the publisher stated.
“According to the research we have done, it seems as if most of the issues are graphics related. Right now, we at NISA and NIS are trying to gather as much information from all over the world as possible in order to pinpoint what is causing these problems.”
Disgaea first launched for the PS2 in May 2004, and has since spawned multiple sequels and even an anime series.
The PC version of Disgaea is now available on Steam for £14.99.
If you’re worried about performance problems but wish to try the game there is always the option to ask for a refund within the two hour window on Steam.
