Well pardon my bluntness when I say it's about damn time. Good to see the game finally get recognition it deserves, though I doubt being in a Guiness record is going to repair any under-appreciation for it... News on Valkyria Chronicles is tough to get as is, but it's nice to see that the game is being praised in such a way.

See what happens when you make 3D games that don't have Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega?

It's from a different department of Sega. For a third reference, the Total War games do pretty well, and they're pretty mediocre RTS games.

You know that saying, "There Is Nothing New Under the Sun?"

It applies to VC, too. Far before VC was even on the drawing board, a game called "Hogs of War" had many of VC's gameplay elements.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhj1Ekqz2S4

That counter in the corner seems to be Hogs' version of AP, with the game's turns ending after an attack (then you move on to the next pig). The "AP" seems to rather be a timer (as far as you can go without running out of time or attacking, instead of until a bar runs out).

The entire time we've been in love with a remake! A damn good remake, but still...

EDIT: It also seems that the unit's health effects it's "AP" in Hogs, while the closest Valkyria gets is a broken ankle. I guess Hans' cousins don't have Ragnaid, eh?

So my question is should i wait and focus on finishing the game? or just watch the anime and play whenever i feel like it. Wich one should spoil me Anime or VideoGame?

The anime spoils itself, there are 2 openings to the anime, what happens in 1 opening, the later... speaks for itself.

I'd say stick to the game, start to finish, then watch the anime, it's not as good...

Yes, the game, in my opinion (and the popular opinion) is that the game's story and ending is much better than that of the anime. Snowman also has a good point when he said the second half of the anime blatantly spoils some rather... key elements to the future...

In any case, I'd still recommend playing the game, then the anime. It's better to the see the original storyline as it was meant to be, then later the anime's... adjustments. Whether the latter's changes would be for better or worse, you're the one to decide...

Is This Teaser Site For Valkyria Chronicles 3?

Nice teaser site.
The VC3 site will officially open on 16 September. Can't wait to see the new stuff they have for VC3.

16 days... holy crap. This is either VC2 for the Playstation 3, or a completely new (and hopefully available to the consoles) VC game. Either way, this seems like some big news, and a future for Valkyria Chronicles.

I guess you are dreaming of a small unit full of them creating havoc behind enemy lines. Oh wait! I thought it was some Brad Pitt movie.

I will agree, announcement of third is a bit soon, even for the time that Valkyria Chronicles 2 has been out in Japan, and especially so since this game has just come out in America...

What else could it be? Is this teaser site from Sega? If not, my suspicions are also going up for possibly a Season 2 of the VC anime, maybe focusing on the Lanseal Academy students and VC2's events. Well, I'm leaning more toward hoping for a game, considering the... "stellar" performance we've seen in portraying the game original game as an anime. Then again, I have no PSP to play VC2 with, so I might have to rely on the anime to at least get some understanding of the plot's events. Still, two more weeks and we'll figure out what all of this is.

A Edy-based spin off game? Am I actually calling a different team making a VC game (albeit not with Leopard and/or BLiTZ)?
