Finally opened this game tonight once the kiddos were in bed to check it out.  I didn't expect to wait so long before the first save point. I was so tired I was falling asleep.

So far it is a good game. Hoping to get more combat time. Felt like I hit a couple of buttons and the gameplay section was done.

Have put a few hours in to this game and I am loving it. Currently I have been liking this more than Persona 5. The games feel similar to me although I know others may argue that would seem strange.

I wish I had more time to put in to the game right now because I am curious how the story ends.

What is up with the proportions of the Valkyria? Was I the only one thinking she was even over obnoxious compared to what I expected. It is to the point of comical. 😱

No, you're not the only one thinking about that.  ;-D

Well, the character designer (Raita Honjou) is a Hentai artist and simply can't hide this even in his SFW jobs for Sega...

Selvaria Bles and Alicia Melchiott were absurdly well endowned too, methinks, though Bhrunhilde certainly takes the cake. Illustrations done by an eroge artist? That explains a lot when I look at some of the character designs.


Anyway, I'm currentely at Chapter 9 and I am getting closer to the end. There's a shrowd a mystery that still hangs over the overall story but so far...


I'll say this first, as far as average JRPGs go, this at least, this towers over those easily. It's a weird mix, of quasi-turn based and on-the-fly hack & slash, but once you get into the game's groove and understand how you do magic, as well as upgrades, it all clicks.


Dare I say that, despite the fact that the cutscenes can sometimes drag on for a while, the story is quite engaging. While Valkyria Chronicles relies heavily on the four main leads, they do their best to make sure you care about the 8 or so Vannaguard members. Trust me, you'll care about 'em if you let them die on the battlefield before the time runs out.


I did, but fortunately I cheated by going back to a previous save file.

Eh, nothing against the art but I can't help but laugh at the girls and remember what the artist likes to draw. :))
