I picked this up for the PS3 last week and I love it. It's an interesting twist on a turn based RPG style game. The graphics are amazing and the story is great. Looks like you're playing in a water color world. Anyway ... if anyone has a chance to check this game out, give it a shot.

Anyone else out there on the PS3 ?

Little Big PLanet makes me curse at my TV like crazy. I'm waiting for my neighbors to complain.

As far as Valkyria Chronicles ... I've gotten further into the missions and the story and I really like the story. There was a big twist I completely didn't see coming and I couldn't believe it. I like that character design too ... there are some issues with game play (how can I miss a point blank shot from right behind someone ?) .. but otherwise .. this game has consumed all of my free time.

hay all, im back from the dead again Very Happy

i picked up a copy of valkyria chronicles when i picked up my PS3 slim on launch day. (because i was getting disgruntled at the abysmal 360 exclusives) i think the best way to describe it is "best game no one ever played."

The story was quite good, very good compared to most things this generation (lets face it, there have been very few half decent JRPGs this generation). the graphics are pretty blocky, but thats half the point and the "canvas effect" looks very nice. i would say that the one standout feature though is the characters that make up your squad. each has has enough personality to fill the entire cast of an FPS crammed into a single character and this makes them (for the most part) lovable an memorable. furthermore you actually care what happens to most of the chaps or chappets that you field often, and this really does affect the way you play. i know there were times when after a battle i would not save and try the battle again because someone had died (normally kevin)

in summation, i agree with laz. it is teh coolzors. Very Happy

Did you yell "Nooooooooooooo!" at the screen when one of main characters was "removed from the game" ?

I did ... Nooooooo .... nooooooooo!

i didnt yell NOOOOOOOOOO, but it certainly came as a surprise and made me feel pretty bad. almost as much of a surprise as that combining thrid person shooter, turn based strategy and RPG actually made a decent game Very Happy

Yeah that really took me by surprise.

Have you seen the VC anime at all? Different kind of story.
