Oops, bad choice of words there. Sorry, and thanks for the edit. Either way I don't expect very many good things right now.

Edit: Well, it's still going to use the CANVAS engine, so it's still going to look beautiful. The fact that seasons pass and school events happen is kind of silly, but then again it could be interesting. Persona style? Mana-Khemia style? There's also the possibility of branching story paths like previous posters said, which could add some replayability that the first game needed imo.

The website shows a better map of Europa.

And it seems the Empire reaches all the way south and to parts of AF territory.

hmm, I smell special edition VC PSP? In any case I'll need to pick a PSP on the cheap if I want to play this. Luckily, I think the older models have been on clearance lately. Hopefully we get a US version.

I'd be more stoked about this if it weren't for the fact that RAITA isn't returning for this.

Well I guess that seals it. If we're getting a localization I'm buying a PSP.

Sigh.

Well considering I bought a PS3 pretty much for VC, I'll probably end up getting a PSP as well. Bastards.

As if aware of me saying last night that I needed to get a PSP for this, and thus start saving now, my car just smacked me with hundreds of dollars in repairs this morning so this game better be delayed big time until I can recover.

Well it certainly looks like they know what they are doing, they's pretty much address most of our complain in this being a half-hearted title.

The mentioning of ad-hoc means muti-player? This is interesting. Looks like there will be more type and number of units this is definitely a plus.

The story background. Kinda of far-fetch at first. but after you think about it. It is possible.

Spoiler for plot from game:



In any case, a used relatively good condition PSP is only about 120 or so. And a memory card is cheap if you get it from Fry or other large retailer/internet when its on sale. It'll be a lot more affordable than PS3 and with PSP Go going out..we might have further price reduction when VC comes out in English.

Oh..that means Sega have to localize it first. Let's hope they would at least be able to do that.

I just paid off my car last week so all funds coming into my account are savings. So I should have a decent sum in there by the time VC2 is done.

Bloody Falcon. Should have got my LanEvo then.

You know what will be interesting ? Facing some of the former playable characters as CPU controlled oppenents in the Sequal. Especially those with the Dracsen Hater trait. So will you be able to gun them down when the time comes ?

And why does not anyone comment on the Adhoc function, since one of the biggest wish from VC1 was for the developers to add a multiplayer mode.
