I was able to redownload the demo from my history, so I'm gonna try it tonight, and if I like it, I'll get in on this deal.

The demo for this game sucked. After playing it, I decided that I didn't want it. I'm glad I ultimately bought it played it due to the vocal fan base.

I've been eyeing this for a while. Any ideas for an add-on to get FSSS?

It's on SD now, so if you're on the pot, sh*t or get off.

I might get this just to have a sealed new copy. I bought and played a used copy from Gamestop. I enjoyed Valkyria Chronicles enough that I am willing to own the game twice.

Still have to play the DLC, which I think price dropped or I got them on sale awhile back.

Only 31 left from HubbaGames (fulfilled by Amazon). I got one after everyone in the tread saying to just buy it. Had some credit too so I got it for $11.

Great price. It's a recent deal because I got it for 19.99 from the same seller I believe in December 2012. I checked the price again in January/early February and it still was the same price so yeah, it's recent.

I guess I'll put my two cents in about this game. It's awesome... no seriously it's my favorite game this gen. That being said here's some reasons not to get it.

1. You hate anime. For the most part this game is an anime styled game, and it's awesome. Just such a great story, and the art is beautiful, but yea if you hate anime this game isn't going to change that.

2. You need trophies... this doesn't have any, and if you care, I feel sorry for you.

3. You don't want anything turn based. While the turns are much better than most it's still a turn based game.

4. You need something online. No multiplayer no stats, no online connectivity.

5. You think it'll be worth something. Honestly there's nothing about this game that warrants it being collectible. It's popular enough to have a reprint, but not popular enough to quickly sell out. I'll give you that this game in no way sold as many copies as it should of, and is a modern masterpiece. Still 2 things are needed for something to be collectible. One it needs to be rare. There are about 2 million copies of this game floating around. It's not going to hard to find a sealed one until 30+ years from now. Even then it'll probably only bring 5x it's retail price. And who knows who'll be interested in the game by then, and it's not like nobody will be able to play it.

I know this game has been getting a lot of praise in this thread, and I just want to add to it. I bought this (thanks to CAG!) on a whim because so many people seemed to enjoy it, once I finally sat down and played it I understood why. I could go on about why, but trust everyone here and pick this up!

Yet another post in strong support of this game. When I learned I might be getting a PS3 soon, this was the first game I bought. Yes--I bought it before I even had a PS3! LOL

I definitely think this is one of my favorite PS3 games, but I do enjoy anime and I prefer a slower, strategic game. The watercolor art style is rather unique, and the mix of action/strategy strikes just the right note.

I'll never understand the people who won't play a game because it lacks trophies. That is the saddest aspect of the new generation of gamers. Forget eating that delicious burger--you won't get a gold sticker for your shirt that says you just ate a burger!

Says it's backordered, but they should have more later today.

How different is this from the sequel? Overall easier or harder?

These are very good points. I would also throw in that if you don't like hard games, you may want to pass. This game can get pretty challenging at times. Still, it is an amazing game and definitely worth a play.

I went ahead and grabbed one. I didn't get a chance to try the demo last night, but the great comments here swayed me. New copies are averaging 20 dollars on Ebay, so if I don't like the demo, or change my mind, I won't be loosing any money. Win/Win!

Whats funny is that I actually owned this years ago during some deal offer from someplace, and my backlog was so big(still is actually), that I decided to sell it. Now here I am years later, buying it again. Hopefully I'll get to it this time.

I love this game but will never understand people who love anime. Are they just budding creeps with the young looking girls and the way too much adult nature? Are we even? Can we agree that as human beings we don't need to understand everyone's reason for an opinion because its just that? If I could have went back into time and prevented you from posting yours, I would have.


You have a lot to learn, but I assume from you post that you're still growing up. Of course some opinions are wrong. All of society is pretty much deciding which opinions are more valid than others. (Don't let your internet upbringing delude you into thinking otherwise.) Wasn't that long ago that some people's opinions were that it was okay to own other people. Guess we shouldn't have looked down on them, eh? It's just their OPINION after all. :roll:

I won't say someone is right or wrong for liking or disliking something. If you tried anime or this game and liked/disliked it, that's fine. But some reasons for liking/disliking something are dumb. If you saw an anime and found the voices annoying or the artwork too cutesy, that's cool. If you dislike all anime simply because there is a tiny gold sticker on the outside of the box, then you're a dope. That's what trophies represent. It's a meta reward that has nothing to do with the gaming experience. And ignoring a great game because it doesn't give you a tiny sticker is sad, sad, sad.

Trophies be damned, this game is amazing and more than worth the price

+1 for this. Believe the hype. The game IS that good! The story is worth the price of admission alone.

Agreed, don't let the lack of trophies make you miss this gem. If only it sold better we would of got the sequels on ps3 instead of psp

I'd say more balanced. Game doesn't get super hard until Chapter 7 or 8 when they're in the desert and you face an enemy that can one-shot anyone.

Hmm, alright. I've noticed the game seems to spike in difficulty when I do missions to finish the chapter/month (I'm stuck at April at the moment). Otherwise, it wouldn't be too hard to adjust from playing VC2 to VC & back?
