Default Valkyria Chronicles

I figure I might as well make this thread again.

For a review:
*Strategy RPG
*People can die if you don't call a medic to them
*Different Classes include: Scouts (fast but low attack), Shocktroopers (Good all around but low AP), Lancers (Good against tanks, bad against people), Snipers (Headshots are 1 hit kills but they have low AP and low defense), Engineers (Low attack and low defense, but they're fast and can heal better than anyone else as well as restock tanks and humans, and heal tanks, and do all the support).
*There are also Tank Commanders and pilots but there's like one person who does that shit.
*There's also a medic, but you don't control her.
*Vyse, Aika, and Fina all make an appearance in the game. Vyse is a Shocktrooper, Aika is a Scout, and Fina is the medic.
*Re-imaginations of WW2.

I dunno. Nothing else to really talk about I guess, but I know a lot of people recently bought this game so might as well make a thread. Specially since we can chat away about it.

I heard they made Fina into three identical twin sisters, though -- all medics.

I've just seen that there's an anime of this, I hope that Vyse, Aika and Fina turn up in it.

Oh holy shit. I knew there was an anime, and I knew about Vyse, Aika, and Fina -- huge reason why I want the game -- and yet until now I didn't put two and two together. Shit yes, they better be in that anime. At least as a cameo.

Sucks that you have to let some of your guys die in order for you to get all the possible recruits in at one point or another. Apart from that, it's alright. I'll also be looking forward to the DLC's they have for this.

With Karl you just let him fall in combat, he doesn't have to die. In order to get Lynn I went to the second skirmish, let him run in front of those two shocktroopers (after inflicting some damage, just stood there and let him fall. Ran up with Rosie, saved him, then killed the two guys in one go because you can go up to the side and do that and most of the time one of Rosie's potentials goes up.

As far as I know the same goes for Emile (sniper), but you do that with OSCAR (sniper)! O: Knute you just need money, Musaad or whatever the fuck his name is you just need to do a new game+ and I forgot how you get the engineer.

I can't wait for DLC either. :>

I just did skirmishes with every character. I think I currently got 90% of the people available to me's hidden potentials unlocked, excluding main characters.

That's pretty much all I've seen Rosie used for, anyway.

I've used Rosie a few times for fighting. Largo has been sitting around most of the time. He's only had to attack at tank once or twice.

SEQUEL?

Quote:
in the latest issue of Famitsu, Nonaka Ryutaro, the game's producer, said he was pleased with Japan's reception of the war-torn title, and expressed interest in creating another installment in the franchise. However, considering the game was a commercial flop in North America and Europe, but absolutely beloved in Japan, where the title has spawned an anime series and reached Sony's Japanese Greatest Hits status, it's not certain that any prospective Valkyria sequels would find their way beyond Japan's borders.
From Joystiq PS3.

I still need to pick this game up sometime.

I wish I'd asked that before sending him out on a suicide skirmish mission.

I also find it funny that once you enter the end game, pretty much every sniper has a dot for an aiming thing (unless you go for that REALLY inaccurate but hella powerful sniper rifle).

Rosie is a beast if she has awakened potential near Lynn. And I agree about Largo. If there's any heavy armor resistance, chances are I'm gonna use Jann or Elysse.

Favorite character in this whole game so far would have to be as follows

Scout: Musaad or Wavy
Shocktrooper: Opinion is very split on this one, but it'd probably boil down to Nina/Jane/Hannes.
Lancer: Nils
Engineer: Nadine
Sniper: Marina

Vyse, Aika, Marina, Largo, Alicia, and Welkin are my favorites. I'm easy.

So apparently the DLC is pretty short on both ends. Everything costs 5 bucks to get, but I'm still interested in getting it.

It seems like extra missions, nothing to major, just some more scoop on the stories. Still tempted, but I'll only get them once I've finished the game. Part of me was hoping for more characters or something.

Oh Jesus, running over with Alicia is not the time to find out that Shocktroopers have insane armor versus Scouts.

And don't forget that scout rifles are like pea shooters compared to their machine guns.

That ceases to be the case when you get Gallian S-20's/ A-20, since a full clip ought to take down a shocktrooper in interception mode, and you can finish them off in your phase without so much as breaking a sweat. Get a second scout to back up the first and you're nigh-untouchable. And yeah this has been done on Hard difficulty, since anywhere else I try this usually results with them dying or almost dead.

Also, can anyone tell me what quotes Alicia and Rosie say when they have to retreat? I always leave them out into the thick of things in a hard skirmish, but they always manage to come out on top.

I can't wait until I can upgrade my weapons more. I really, really can't wait. Also, Aika and Vyse are my 1-2 punch. They are awesome, as I knew they would be, and I love them so.

Holy shit... The "destroy the giant fucking tank" mission is insane. I beat it just a little bit ago, but wow. Incredible. My blood pressure's through the roof.
