Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice is the third video game in the Disgaea series by Nippon Ichi. It was released on January 31, in Japan for the for the PlayStation 3 video game console.
The game takes place in a Netherworld School called the Maritsu Evil Academy. In this demon school, a good student is one who engages in delinquent activities such as ditching classes, or not doing homework. The student who participates the most in these kind of activities is known as the Honor Student, while demons who arrive to class early and do their homework are known as delinquents. Mao, son of the chairman, has not once attended class since the beginning of school and is known as the honor-student of Maritsu Evil Academy. His ambition for the future is to overthrow his father, who also happens to be an Overlord, and take his title for himself. After reading a few volumes in his manga, Mao comes to the conclusion that "heroes are the ones who defeat devils". From that point on, Mao resolved to become a hero himself, convinced it will help him achieve his goal.
Eventually, Raspberyl, the delinquent of the school, learns about Mao's goal and begins to worry. If Mao were to achieve the title of Hero, then it would endanger her position as the school's "Number One Delinquent". She makes up her mind to follow Mao, stop his plan, and once again secure her title. However since Raspberyl is a demon delinquent, she tries to solve the problem without violence and talk him out of it instead. Seeing this from a distance, Almaz, a hero himself, misunderstands the situation and tries to save the day. Mao accepts the challenge and defeats him, stealing Almaz's title in the process. With the title of Hero, Mao believes he is one step closer to defeating his father and achieving his goal of becoming an Overlord. Characters
(マオ, Mao ?)
Class: Netherworld Honor Student
Mao is an Honor Student and son of the chairman at Maritsu Evil Academy. He has not once shown up to class, nor has he ever participated in any school activities such as homework or volunteering. He has a brain with an Evil Quotient of 1.8 million, and uses it to conduct experiments and evil research. Whenever he finds a subject for experimentation, his glasses will fog over and he'll begin laughing to himself. If it's for the sake of reaching his goal, he'll ignore everything and charge straight ahead.
Not caring about the problems of others, he will often take what he wants and use force to rule over others. He is willing to do whatever it takes to defeat his father, even if seems stupid or is something he hates to do. Despite his hatred for humans and heroes, he continually studies them, even keeping an observation journal to record his data. He believes that by learning about them, he can find a method to overthrow his father and take the title of Overlord for himself.
Because Mao stole Almaz's "hero" title, it is slowly manifesting within him. His speech is turning much more normal and "human like". How polite will his speech turn is unknown.

After forming a tower, the character at the bottom can execute the Throw command to toss the character at the top of the tower to higher areas.
When throwing a character to an ally, that ally could catch your tossed ally and then throw them a few extra spaces based on the second thrower's direction. This applies to both human and monster type allies.
Trailers show that the player can lift and throw objects of the environment at characters.
Monsters can now morph into weapons in which a partner can use to execute a strong technical attack. To do this, you must first equip a certain demon ability to that character.
One can incorporate a maximum of two special augmentation abilities to improve your character's performance in battle, or allow Monster creatures to execute Demon Change skills with a partner.
that was the point of the comment.....it probably couldnt push anything to the max if it tried, it was sarcasm, if you know or care about disgaea you'd have figured that out almost instantly...
oh and well i guess graphically it wont push it to the max, but the pure amount of nonstop play time probably will cause my ps3 to go up in smoke
