Default Valkyria Chronicles (Series)

EDIT March 2016: Thrad renamed to series thrad

...kind of. Also, this was announced in November. How the fuck did I miss it.

Here's the story.

It's called "Valkyria: Azure Revolution" and it appears to be a spin-off with slightly different combat. Now all they have to do is port and remaster 2 and 3 (and actually finally bring 3 to the west XD).

Oh Sega. Why do you suck so bad sometimes. Square-Enix levels of asshattery over there.

Yeah, their "strategic" decision to make the 2 and 3 for PSP, and then not bring the 3 to the West because "the PSP market is too small to cover the cost of localization" ...

Better than nothing I suppose. I really enjoyed the franchise and I was kind of sad to see it go.

I've played a bit of 2 on ye olde PSP and it's worth it, a great game. It just doesn't have the shine of the original, which just makes the original infinitely better.

idek, I'm such a slut for the original I could never bring myself to play the follow ups. Maybe if I was extremely bored and only interested in okay game play. But the story of the original game is so ingraved in my guts I'm rather sure this won't be to my interest.

The second game was good, but the difficulty curve was outright bipolar. Really liked the most of the changes to gameplay. The story, not as much. Too much angst ridden teen bullshit. I can ignore a lot if gameplay is good.

I completely agree. I personally even went to buy the 3 in import and try to play it in Japanese (which I don't understand at all), relying on whatever translation I could find to follow the story. In the end, I enjoyed it a lot, better than 2. However, the original was still better in my eyes.
Something I really appreciated of the original Valkyria Chronicles, beyond the gameplay and story, was how well-polished and well-finished it all was.

It's mind boggling to this day how good it looks on the PS3. I'm playing it on my suped-up PC right now and it looks exactly the same XD. I know it's anime watercolour trickery but I'd take every single game like that because it just looks so great,

IMO you know when the art direction has done an awesome job when a game is able to age well, like that. On a completely different art style, I had a similar feeling the last time I replayed Mirror's Edge.

I'm with Fangu on never even having bothered to play the other two. I was too miffed that they wouldn't be continuing the series on a system that could handle the gorgeous graphics to bother.

It wasn't ever really the story that appealed to me. It was very anime and the symbolism heavy-handed, I found. But the presentation and gameplay were out of this world.

A "remastering" on the first game is coming to the PS4. Somewhat interesting, but given the stylized nature of the graphics I doubt it will really look any better.

This will be a day one buy for me.
I bought it at the time for PS3, and then re-bought it for Steam... but I'm a console guy at heart, so having for PS4 (trophies included) is just good news for me. I'm buying it thrice... Yep.
