Well this is strange, 'cause i couldn't unlock Oscar like that. Very strange.

It even says in the bio that his brother Emile joins because Oscar died in battle.

I get the feeling that it's the type of game you're playing. Story mode vs. skirmish mode.

Except that Emile's Bio says that he enlisted cause his brother was in danger and the last part of his profile even says returned from the war and helped his brother become a doctor.

Spoiler for Emile Bio from GameFAQs:

Ah well. I still stand by the fact that i couldn't unlock him with Oscar just knocked out. He had to be killed. Funny enough a few people i've spoken to recently on another forum said the same thing.

I'm not calling you a liar, it's just rather strange, that's all.

& a huge what at that bio. I'm guessing there's two different bio's for his death and living.

This is actually making me really curious though. Maybe I'll try starting a new game when I get home and just power through till I get Oscar, get his potential, and then try knocking him out and see what happens.

A question on subs: It seems to me that you can play the game with Japanese audio and English subtitles in non-Japanese versions. Is that right?

Yep that's correct, same with the DLC content.

I'm actually quite suprised about that as well. Heck he couldn't get through the Tomb Raider review without mentioning such things about twenty times.

He didn't even play long enough to learn that there's more than four weapon upgrades, that a major character does die, that you can cycle through the menus using L2/R2... etc, etc, etc.

Heck, how exactly does Welkin look like a girl?

Then again, it's like most journalism. Why tell the truth when a lie will sell better?

I'll second Barbobot - I missed Emile and Lynn on my first playthrough, and got them both on NG+ without having to kill off Oscar and Karl.

From what I read, though, you need to have all of the designated victim's potentials unlocked first or it won't work - maybe that's the hidden factor?

No it's not that. I worked on the hidden potentials first.

Fair enough, then. All I can say is it worked for me.

Does the version of the game matter?

Just to add: I got Emile, by accident, on my first playthrough and I didn't let a single character perma-die so I'd assume you just have to let them be taken out and saved. At least that's how it worked for me.

Now, can anyone explain why Catherine O'Hara isn't showing up on my second run? She was easily my favorite unit and I'm rather disappointed that I can't use her again.

edit: Nevermind, she finally showed up after mission seven. It's still weird though, because last time I started the game with her.

Yeah it's happened on my second playthrough. I didn't have all my characters, though as i prodicded with the story, they ended up appearing. Edy didn't appear until the eighth mission.

Ultimate Accuracy. Turns the hit circle into a dot. No other sniper gets it, so they're all far more inaccurate than Marina. She can take one of the cruddy Empire rifles and hit 100%, excluding dodges.
