    The prime requirement to be able to become a Valkyria is apparently a pair of massive knockers.

    The notion of cadets playing a role in a Civil War due to a shortage of officers/soldiers isn't entirely divorced from reality, there are examples in history of such things occurring.

    The idea that normal school life would continue alongside this impressement into the military is of course fundamentally ridiculous.

    People who think VC represents the nadir of jRPG writing should really play Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest.

    Which one are you on? Only one I've played is the one they've got on Steam. Real fun, but I wish they had more maps, more varied equipment, and less weebery.

    Also the cast of VC2, etc.

    Valkyria Chronicles: Unrecorded Cameos.

    Almost ruined the game for me.

    I like how tanks finally feel like tanks. Even targeting the radiator it takes multiple shots to destroy some. In the previous games they might as well have been made out of cardboard.

    The Darcsen tsundere otherwise wrecks everything.

    That chit definitely gets annoying. Even Juliana shows up ffs.

    The existence of chronologically later periods in the narrative is one of the biggest weaknesses of a prequel. The awareness of future conflicts and their characters and the resolution of their stories trivializes the emotional investment audiences are supposed to make in the chronically earlier parts in the narrative.

    LET'S THROW IN A BUNCH OF REFERENCES TO CHRONICALLY LATER PERIODS IN THE NARRATIVE. DIARRHEA OF REFERENCES!

    Finally a playable Valkyria... and it completely sucks. Destroying entire battalions during cutscenes but not even able to oneshot a turret during actual gameplay.

    Imca is much better.

    Proof if any were needed that technology is great and nothing beats a good blaster at your side.

    Game sure is a drag to finish. How many times do you need to blow up the same Calamity Raven stooges?

    Imca is basically the keystone of several missions on that game (but there is variety too, shielder missions are tricky too and the characters with movement refresh abilities are very useful) because of her extreme glass cannon-ness. I remember a particular one where to get max Rank (it's a complete failure to get less on these games) you need to stop at exactly the right place on the middle of a plain to one-shot the max number of tanks. It makes for 'interesting' missions when the OCD of completeness compels you to re-class Imca to scout (-ATK power) for the class capstones.

    Ahhh. Good game. I like how it refined the formula, and how the system encourages blitzes.

    Metal Gear Acid 1 and 2 are also interesting PSP tactical games if you're looking for another thing slightly different from the cargo cult. Don't be discouraged by the cardgame facade, you can heavily stack the deck on that... literally.

    Growlanser 4 is basically 'weeb baldur's gate' (RtwP) ... but with better encounter design (or more diverse objectives). Yes, i know, it's unbelievable.

    Gungnir is completely fucking unique in combat system and i don't even want to try to explain it, but it's quite refreshing if you learn the system and are sick of FFT or disgaea clones.

    Wildarms XF... is a FFT clone with more permissive multiclassing. It's quite a difficult game at first, but then you unlock some classes and get some units and the difficulty plummets - unfortunately, because the encounter design is nothing special and the 'mission objectives' are boring 'always kill everything' (and the story is abyssal).

    Jeanne D'Arc is a even more traditional FFT clone, and easy too. But very well polished production, and you can laugh at Japanese interpretation of Jeanne and the 100 years war (many Japanese are apparently a bit of french-weebs).

    These last two games have the 'fatal' difficulty flaw of having abilities or classes that get more actions if you kill enemies iirc. Good for feeling like a boss clearing the enemies on 'turn 1' but nothing as satisfying as doing the same on VC3 because of a good tactical plan and efficiency executing it.
