Valkyria Chronicles First Impression
December 8, 2008 at 11:39 pm
Thanks to Kotaku I learned about 4PP (4 Player Podcast) and thanks to them I learned about Valkyria Chronicles. As I said in my Chrono Trigger blog I’m willing to give JRPG style games a chance and after watching 4PP play some VC I decided to try the demo out on PSN. Needless to say I liked the game enough to buy it. I’ve been playing it for probably the past 4 or 5 hours now non-stop and have to say I think I’m in love. The art style is awesome, the combat is addictive, and the world/story is quite fascinating.
I would recommend trying out the demo for VC if you’re a fan of SJRPGs (The S stands for strategy for those who don’t know). For those of you who have glanced at the game and saw it was made by Sega I urge you to not let that stop you. Yes Sega may suck at Sonic games now but I have faith in them with their other games. The only thing I’m sad about is that Valkyria Chronicles probably won’t get a prequel because the game sold poorly. On a happier note though their making an anime about it so at least it’ll live on in some bastardized version of it’s self. Maybe if the anime is a big enough hit Sega will take a chance with a sequel.
Anyway if you’ve got a PS3 and are sick of your current games check the Valkyria Chronicles demo out on PSN.
