This Armored Trooper is starting to sound like the Allied Peacekeeper from Red Alert.

So, all the enemy needs to do is throw Molotov Cocktails at it?

No, really. think about it.

Got the demo today, and one major thing I've noticed is that the Support Troopers now have a different weapon rather than sharing a self-loading rifle with the Scouts. Not only that, the AP they get has been reduced further. There IS one thing that's throwing me off, and that's the new weapon. It seems to look like a carbine, but somehow the game lists that class' weapon as a "PISTOL" O_O. So I decided to split the difference and consider the weapon a Pistol-calibre Carbine.

A pistol caliber carbine? Are we talking about something similar to the M1 Carbine which fires a .30 caliber carbine rounds that look almost like a pistol round? Come to think of it, the M1 Carbine was often carried by other service troops like engineers, medics, mortar crew, radio operators, and even Sergeants and Officers. Also the M1 Carbine weighed about 5 lbs (2.5 kg) empty and for those of who carried and held various firearms, the M1 Carbine is extremely lightweight. Maybe the ammunition the support troopers are using is the 7.92mm Kurz (short).

knife throwing is just funny, I've seen my friend getting double KO from throwing knifes and knifing the other guy. But it would be hard to implement it in VC2 though, since it's not really an FPS.

Ramal is a nice character..I think...beside the fact I still don't know his purpose in the end..I almost thought he had one, but it prove me wrong.

Anyway, it's a welcoming sight to have old characters. I love Cameos.

The characters in the demo seem pretty cool. I think I'm going to like them! Also it's nice to hear some of the originals come back as well... So yeah... CAN'T WAIT!

Just Japan. Well, I should clarify. Since the PSP is not region locked, it is possible to get the demo to work on your PSP no matter where you are... the issue is that it's only in Japanese. If that doesn't stop you, I say you should download it and play it. (I'm going to do the same myself... as soon as I figure out how to get it from my computer to my PSP)

you can connect it throw the cable to USB, it's the type that's common for most digital camera and stuff, or if you have a memory card slot for Sony. you can probably drag it to the game or iso folder.

thanks for the link though..I was wondering where you can get it.

Easiest way is to use a USB cable to hook the PSP to your computer (something like a mini 6-pin to USB, I think?). Drop the demo folder into the Game folder on your PSP. There's a diagram on the demo download page.

And yeah, playing games in Japanese...either you figure it out, or you find an online guide and babelfish it. I got through Ar tonelico II this way, and plan to do the same for the third in that series.

Website just updated. We now have a hot science prof to add to the cast (or something, she wears a lab coat). Dunno her name...

Also, a somewhat awkward cutscene got added to Avan's profile. I facepalmed at seeing Cosette restrain him from doing something stupid. Again, can't determine what was going on.

Last is an update on the BLITZ system. It's now got all three videos up and running. Stuff any VC veteran should be familiar with, I'd think.

Last but not least, another blog update. Something about it made Avan look like a baka.

She looks like the chief of the scientists experimenting on young Selveria in episode 24 of the anime.

I think you're onto something. A translation of her profile, albeit a crappy one, seems to indicate that she's an expert on Valkyria, science-wise. That, and she has old ties with the Empire.

So yeah, maybe she IS the scientist who raised Selvaria.

EDIT: This clip is a pretty funny one, but I could use a transcript.

Can anyone assist?

I thought Einstein's Theory of Relatively gave birth to nuclear weapons? And wasn't he also the inventor of the Chronosphere and Prism Weapons? While the Soviet's Tesla weapons were obviously derived from the work of Nikolai Tesla.

I mean as in he was coerced into making military developments for Germany.

Found a video on Youtube that has given the new Prof. a name. Her name, apparently, is Clementia Forster. Dunno any other info besides that.

TV website had an update on some content in the next DVD. This one features the voice actors playing the game, though I can't tell whether or not they're playing a demo or a beta.

BUT, we get to see Edy kicking ass, even if only for a second! YAY!
