You have to admit though, the way it was done was just about perfect. I mean the character development up to it, the timing, everything was incredibly well done.

There is one later that you can finish in 5 min that give you 50,000 EXP...it's definately doable, but then sometimes it's just easier and leveling up only really increase your aim/hp/evasion. it just increase your defense..that is research through upgrades so I don't think it's game breaking.

I was waiting for the medic to show up right up tilil Rosie start singing..than I go like...what that's impossible!!!!

You're forgetting one of the golden gaming rules. Whatever used to help a character when injured during gameplay won't work during a cutscene.

Thus I believed it showed a true and ugly side of war, and as much as I loved her, I feel it was necessary...

I still cry every night when I think about it though.

It's even codified.

Yep this is what i'm talking about.

There are so many, and it's funny how it misses out one of the main events from Final Fantasy VII, which is very similar to the scene we're talking about from VC.

I... didn't even realize that they did call for a medic during the second shot, and didn't even try on the first. Makes me wonder why now...

Because the Plot called for it.

It's still a good story, but that still doesn't mean it hasn't got glaring issues here and there.

That's listed over at Gameplay and Story Segregation, which also applies here.

I'm going to have to do skirmishes a little bit as my strategies and gameplay aren't as good as yours and others for this game. I'm usually quite pro when it comes to strategy games and thinking on the fly, however Valkryia is quite different from what I'm use to. Patience is not a strong suit for me in games like this, so I have to be able to over-power my enemies a little bit.

Maybe once I get through the game and have a better grasp of what you can do, the next time around I'll shoot for no skirmishes and higher ranking difficulties.

Just finished the escape through the forest, although it took three attempts to figure things out. I found it ironic that the enemy Ace in the mission has the title 'the Immortal'. He definitely wasn't after I tripped off the searchlight to have some not-so-friendly mortar fire zeroed in on him.

is that true for the extra hard DLC difficulty level, to get rank A you would have to clear the map?

I think ranks are calculated the same way they always are: speed of completion.

*sigh* I made the second Chapter 8 mission one hell of a meatgrinder. I had about four characters knocked out and evacuated by the time I broke the Imperial offensive and took their first camp, taking some mad shooting by Marina and a near-suicidal solo rush by Rosie to save the day (I love the Strong-willed potential!). It then took forever to get the mortar cannon and its defenders out of the picture. Ended up finishing in 13 turns. Terrible...

On the bright side, I have Lynn now

Now, I'm at the stage where my weapons have started branching out on the R&D tree. Pretty much what I'm seeing are weapons that either have better power, accuracy or inflict status conditions. Which bonuses do you guys prefer? I'm thinking about going accuracy, since most of the time, you want head shots to hit their mark.

Accuracy for rifles, damage for machineguns, lances for... lances, and accuracy for sniper rifles.

Of course, eventually you'll want a max-level mortar for Largo, and max-level T-mag machineguns are pretty nasty considering how many headshots they can get.

Lost Welkin on the supply base mission in chapter 5 late last night. I also lost 3 of my 4 scouts by the time I even entered the base from the north group. Seeing that invincible tank there didn't do anything to help my ego.

Since I haven't been saving in the missions, I'm back to re-doing the mission and figuring out a more effective way.
