What I’ve been playing – Valkyria Chronicles 2

Since I last posted, I did finish Mana Khemia and started up Mana Khemia 2. But since I have that one for PS2, I thought, what I can start up on my Vita. I could have continued playing Gravity Rush or Freedom Wars, but I decided on Valkyria Chronicles 2, which I picked up on PSN sale some time ago.

I…was not expected Avan. The game’s story has been panned by like everyone and I can see why. However, I have to say that at least every character in your squad has scenes that they are involved in. Even if none of them particularly stand out. School-age problems means more than enough stories about romance and crushes. Avan is just…incredibly stupid.

But I kind of like how there are so many missions. The missions are a decent variety and I enjoy all the terrain and weather things to think about. Also, I like how there are class upgrades, though I’m still pretty heavy on scout, shocktrooper, and lancer. I really don’t use engineers, but armored techs are useful. Also I love the customization of equipment and tank options being way more in VC2 than the first game.

I hear Valkyria Chronicles 3 has a better story and has the battle and class improvements of Valkyria Chronicles 2. I only played 2 battles in VC3 just to check the UMD and get a little taste, and it certainly starts off very interesting. So basically I should probably get to VC3 soon.

Otherwise, I’ve played some more Tales of Destiny 2 (the direct Destiny sequel). Things are getting better plot and character-wise. It’s actually the battle system that is annoying me. It’s just so clunky. I feel like I’m doing it wrong. And I just keep getting negative grade for every battle ever since party member 5 joined me… I’m not sure I’m going to finish this game…
