Finally got into the meat of the game in VC1 and oooh shit this game is good. Putting the right squad together and doing proper flanking is very satisfying. Did a very early mission where my top flank was two scouts and two stormtroopers, and my bottom flank was my tank, my engineer, a sniper, a lancer (anti-tank), and a scout. Finding the right balance between aggressive/conservative play and setting up your units properly is a fun challenge.

Also you have a pet that is a baby pig with wings! Merchandising!

one year passes...

I'm on a backlog kick, having picked up and beaten Infamous and had to choose between restarting this or the new XCOM. Thus far, Valkyria has been a treat; mechanics, sound, graphics, gameplay, depth are all super top notch. This does not feel like a five year old game. Still hella fresh and very addictive.

now this would be a good game to play again, why haven't i done that already.

4 years seems like along time ago.

I'm playing VC1 again. I lost my save data for my PS3 awhile back and it's been fun going back through the early levels. I forgot that Largo and Rosie almost mutinied against Welkin, what nerve.

I enjoyed the hell out of both and believe you should finish both, but P3P far moreso.

i haven't played the others but yeah the first game is a classic. have heard 4 is the worthy followup that 2 was not, will get around to it someday.

4 is good, it adds a little bit but it feels very true to the first game -- which is a double-edged sword because it feels like an expansion pack for a 10 year old game almost. i did get about 3/4 of the way thru before kinda drifting into some other games, did enjoy. it's a recommend if you have a gap in your playing schedule and, like, maybe don't pay $90

i guess the result of no one buying 4 was...they're reviving sakura wars instead now?

idk the only old one that got an English release was the worst one apparently. it's a lot sillier than VC i know that much
