So /a/, is Valkyria Chronicles the anime adaptation good or bad?
From what I've heard, by comparison it's shit. But is it merely a bad adaptation or simply a bad anime?
Did somebody say kawaii wars
The game was bad, so I can't imagine the show adaptation being any better.
the anime exists to enjoy alicias face
the vc3 ovas were good
added extra drama which made a love triangle but this made some of the motivation for the captain of the other squads make a bit more sense
Because no one played the game for the story.
A few things were edited out, other things were expanded on. I thought it was worth watching.
obviously watch it for the tits
heh, i guess he shouldn't have left arcadia
they really messed up welkin's character, and the fucked up the ending
si yeah, it was bad in comparison to the game
Does it have Rozy?
Just for Selvaria's titties, I will suffer through anything.
>The game was bad
I feel sorry for you.
I almost forgot that the Valkyria anime fucking KILLED Vyse.
How did Welkin's character change?
Anyway the game has its on heap of problems, particularly nearing the end when, ironically enough, Valkyria shit starts happening. Plus, you end up steam rolling levels in a single turn!
i remembered right after isara dies in the anime he goes full asshole on everything and "powerless"
while on the game he actually stood up for the squad,
also he was hesitant with all that love triangle drama that the game didnt have
It also turned Alicia into a generic tsundere.
Is VC3 worth playing? I loved the first game, but number 2 was mediocre at best.
Holy shit is that really Vyse from SoA?
I only need to know one thing. Does the anime have Aisha? She became my favorite after taking a tank shell to the face and was back on the battlefield before the mission ended.
vc3 was really good
vyse aika and fina do cameos on both the game(s) and the anime of VC
Skies of Arcadia sequel never ;_;
Its better in every possible way.
Maps are bigger
All tanks cost 1 CP
Interception fire is actually dangerous
Scouts and Fencers get nerfed
Anyone can be any class
Way better character models
You can use valkyria in battle
Can change your units costume to that of other squads (squad 7, lanseal, gallia military)
Why can't I hold all these potentials?
Sadly the game wouldn't have enough success.
the only bad thing about this game is that it didnt had a PS3 port,
SEGA been bankrupt is really messing with some nice games
Short answer : No
Long answer : the few gameplay improvements aren't worth getting into the game because vc3 still has those tiny ass maps, including straight recycled vc2 maps. It replaced license grinding with class and potential grinding, and the cast isn't really likable. And they keep throwing cameos from the previous games so you can't really get attached to your squad when they bring back more likable characters.
I've been playing it for the last week and it's pretty great. some of the maps are balls hard to s rank though.
>Scouts and Fencers get nerfed
but vc3 un-nerfed orders so scout rushing is good again.
it actually would, considering how good SoA sold on dreamcast and gamecube
the only thing the anime was good for was the amount of alicia reaction faces we got
> un-nerfed orders
i remember this shit VC had
defense boost -1
evasive boost -1
attack boost -1
unleash potential -2
proceed to 1 turn any field that is not on hard difficulty
End-game maps downright REQUIRE invincibility orders or hax DLC
>capture a base surrounded by bunkers and heavy gunners in three turns across TWO maps
The anime and the game shared similar concepts and plot ideas but executed them really differently from each other.
For example, in episode 10 of the anime they did the cabin scene, but instead of making it like two fucking minutes like the game, they gave they guy a character and interesting things to say. Both were similar, but I prefer the anime's version of this scene.
On the flip side, the character's aren't fucked up in the game and Alicia/Welkin romance was great, but the anime did so much unnecessary bullshit with the love triangle that it was hard to watch sometimes.
I would honestly say to do both since the general plot is the same and there's a LOT of screenshots to be saved in the anime (also Jann has a lot of screen time and he's the best side character) so I dunno, you're call. The game's amazing and you should play that at some point.
This lance was probably the best weapon I had for most of the game, bloody thing is as accurate as a sniper rifle when stuck on someone like Gloria or Ada with the +20 acc accessory.
I have almost 50 images of her and I think I missed out on quite a few.
The anime a shit
Here's my top ten list if anyone has their own.
Anime is shit. You'd be better off watching the VC cutscenes.
Isn't the patch full of bugs still though?
Also those textures look like shit emulated
but base cap missions are easy even with loads of defenders because of sp abilities. the hard ones are when you have to kill all enemies with tons of bases and constant reinforcements.
was that from an untranslated mission?
>Isn't the patch full of bugs still though?
Nope, everything works flawlessly except the text sometimes goes outside the text-box in the mission briefings at the start of every chapter.
>was that from an untranslated mission?
The one where you control Dahau and company I think.
I am kinda annoyed that there is a chance that my patched E2 doesnt have some of the dlc thus making some mission a living hell
I would think that Kurt would easy talking highs kills being a trooper and all. Gisele is not bad
especial those CR mission where you either kill everyone or defend your bases. And where they get the first turn and you have a thirst to kill them all instead of defend bases
Carissa best girl.
>The guys behind her are adult in the game
>Kids or teenagers in the anime
>Not making Giselle a flamethrower Shocktrooper
but but her stats and skill make she such a lovely sniper
>Uses small arms in the game
>Equipped with ballistics in the anime
It kills Selvaria it's shit
>spend an hour grinding a gunner
>immediately regret not having another trooper since gunners are shit
>too autistic to relevel because it would change my deployment rankings
It's lousy. Get the game + art books
Had too much Faldio.
>No Giselle in that pic
W H Y
Is there a prepatched iso I can get somewhere?
I already beat the game in moonrunes but I'd like to play it in english as some of the dialog was tough to read in moon
I finished it, had a huge blast with it. Fixed everything wrong with VC2.
Plus let's be honest, you are going to pirate it anyway, so give it a try
That was one of the things that the anime got right.
It really never made sense why a teenage baker was the captain of the town guard unless it was assumed all the soldiers/guards had already been drafted
Are you telling me that VC3 got an english patch?
Jesus fuck YES
I got the jap .iso sitting somewhere on my comp and I can dust off my PSP any moment.
Where do I get the patch?
Eh, adaptation the VC game was going to be a shitty deal anyway, videogame have shitty plot to being with and this is the game were they don't use the VC power because they chose friendship route (also Isara's death in the game was stupid)
So yeah, it's useless.
Play the game for the great gameplay, then skip 2 and play 3. Also Serge is mai waifu.
Can VC3 be played on a psp emulator for PC or do I need to actually have a psp to play it?
Was I the only one who enjoyed 2?
Pretty sure you can emulate it, based on the post i read on /vg/ jrpg general.
Should ask on the emu thread though.
Daily reminder that Aliasse is best valkyrie.
>petite with near DFC
>nopan in her main outfit with only some belts covering the bottom of her body
Gameplay was fun, but the plot was behind awful.
But this /a/ and there are people who enjoy strike witches and viviass, pretty sure they'd enjoy VC2 plot too, I guess
>It really never made sense why a teenage baker was the captain of the town guard unless it was assumed all the soldiers/guards had already been drafted
Nothing about Valkyria Chronicles makes sense from a military perspective
I mean who the fucks lets a 14 year old (there was a 14 year old in the first game right?) into frontline combat? Who the fuck sends people into combat without helmets or in miniskirts? Even if they were Militia thats unacceptable
how do you get the 4th page?
Oh god, yes. It's a shame they put her in the tank though.
Its obviously going to exclude a lot of shit but it does an alright job of getting the main plot told.
At least 36 years old
Why was the second game so bad? Jesus Christ.
You're all terrible
is the translation patch bug free? any run-over text or unfinished stuff?
Do you need to play VC2 before playing VC3?
I think I liked vc1 over vc2 was cause vc2 throws to much characters. And all of them are kinda meh. While vc3 condense the main cast to small but more interesting bunch.
There was a 12 year old in the first game iirc
Nope. VC3 happens during the events of 1, VC2 is a sequel to 1.
Too perfect to comprehend.
Why did Maxamillian have to be a gigantic faggot?
DLC are not translated and texts sometimes goes out of the windows
Keep in mind the patch is a beta, so it gets shit done
It isn't finished yet, I think most of the character missions and DLC have to be translated, and there are some typesetting issues.
Among my favorite girls of all time.
Right it was the 12 year old I talked about
So to repeat who the hell lets a fucking 12 year old into frontline combat?
Her engineer form in VC2 was fucking broken
rip in peaces
>I mean who the fucks lets a 14 year old (there was a 14 year old in the first game right?) into frontline combat?
Desperation is a major factor, Gallia got stomped very hard and took in whoever they could find just like how nazi Germany used hitler youth as soldiers in the late WW2.
>By 1945, the Volkssturm was commonly drafting 12-year-old Hitler Youth members into its ranks.
Serge wants the D too?
where did you get the dlc ver for E2?
>So to repeat who the hell lets a fucking 12 year old into frontline combat?
And with more danger.
And more suffering.
Welcome to the eastern front.
She will be okay right?
Yes, did you miss him wanting to give you the Valentine Gift?
Juliana and Zeri was VC2 OTP
This guy is the only one who answered correctly.
VC3 cast is pretty great and the recycling stops after few hours
Oh man that reminds me I should get to scanning the artbook
At very least finish all the huge 1 page color illustrations
Please do, I only have a couple pages scrounged from various threads.
Googling that pic gave me a doujin of Lydia getting raped by Borgia, what the hell?
I just started playing yesterday.
Any secret tips from /a/ I should know?
I dropped it.
Eastern Front had reasons for that
This game does not
Always have Marina
Marina will save your life
Not better than VC2's. I don't care about the high school complaints. I'd rather take Avan the retard with Colette and Zeri and their merry band of misfits over Kurt and his bland as fuck love interests and one or twookay characters.
VC2 should have been edgy and grimdark
you should have been tasked with hunting down Squad 7 throughout the game
Level up engineers as fast as you can, their buffs are super useful
So you just have incredibly shit taste
post the page for best girl juliana
>I don't care about the high school complaints. I'd rather take Avan the retard with Colette and Zeri and their merry band of misfits over Kurt and his bland as fuck love interests and one or twookay characters.
You are in the vast minority
>I'd rather take Avan the retard with Colette
To be fair, the complaints about VC2 featuring a squad of anime cliches really doesn't work when every other VC game gives you a squad of anime cliches.
Wasn't there military proper either crushed or getting ruined elsewhere so you get stuck with the dregs and anyone who volunteers.
I swear I'm the only person who thinks you guys are exaggerating how terrible that laugh is. It's not good, but it's not ear shattering.
Because she can take a tank shell to the face and still get better in time to capture the enemy base. Who cares about age when you are that badass?
FUCK YOU SEGA
FUCK YOU FOR KILLING THE VALKYRIA FRANCHISE
FUCK YOUR RETARDED BLUE RUNNING HEDGEHOG
Whoah wait VC3 has been localized? I played the Japanese version, didn't understand half of anything and then just kind of forgot about it.
Where is that image from?
It isn't in the artbooks
It's a fan translation.
Raita needs to be drawing more of this than his skin-and-bones-with-huge-tits Mahou Shoujo
Margit is best girl
it's all good
The one thing that I enjoyed about VC3's character missions was how it had the squad members interacting with each other, whereas in VC2 it was mostly Avan going around social linking and solving everyone's problems.
Alicia is pure sex
Her being a housewife just takes the cake
Terrible. Also whoever directed the anime must have had a childhood incident where sky pirates killed his entire family.
I keep forgetting how short Imca is
Goddamn VC3 had the best team lineup.
Spats wearing tomboy
Tank driver girl whose age is a mystery
The fire-crazy girl
And then the guys were pretty badass too
And it helps that every one of them has a bkacstory rather than "lol I decided to enroll in this school because fame n fortune"
Grab the .iso from somewhere and patch it.
Then grab PPSSPP and you're good to go.
If you want to use a controller, PPSSPP works fine with a 360 controller but if you want to use a PS3 controller you have to grab motionjoy, install its driver and emulate a 360 controller from its software for it to work.
Fun facts from the VC artbooks
Juliana was originally supposed to be man
On Rellia and Imca
"Imca and Relia are complete opposites in how they express their love, if Imca is a cat then Relia is a dog"
Relia worries that her chest is her fastest growing part of her body and drinks milk everyday
Relia's rough drafts were re-used to make make Clarissa
two days ago,a kind anon,posted a rar with 90 reaction faces from Alicia
>don't know if want
These are from the card game right?
>the game was bad
Yeah, most if not all of them are on the wiki
Embrace your inner skeleton
>So /a/, is Valkyria Chronicles the anime adaptation good or bad?
>is it merely a bad adaptation or simply a bad anime?
I'd recognize that profile anywhere
Jesus, I just fapped. The shit I have to put up with...
I THOUGHT I SAW BREAD IN HERE.
You mean those two huge melonpan on her chest? No, you didn't see wrong.
>don't have PS3
>Start VC2 for the first time
>see this thread
>everyone says VC2 is shit
I want to see Selvaria bully Alicia with her oppai
It's shit compared to 1 and 3, it's a fantastic game by itself if you just pretend the others don't exist.
It's still a fantastic game in it's own right, it's just shit compared to 1 and 3.
You can still enjoy it if you just pretend the other two don't exist.
What can you possibly lose besides a bit of your time? I mean, the alternative is to browse /a/.
I SEE YOUR VALKYRUR GENES ARE ALMOST AS STRONG AS MY OWN
So this means when I do play VC1 and VC3, they'll be that much more amazing, right?
No Futa Alicia/Selvaria porn.
What's the fucking point of anything anymore.
Sweet jesus, that's fucking repulsive
Does she have god damn octuplets in there or something?
I couldn't fap because that doujin was so OOC.
>Let us recreate the Valkyrian race in pure-blood
Okay, so I'm too much of a lazy fuck to go down to my nearest gamestop to get VC1, so I was thinking about emulating VC2.
Will the first game feel clunky after playing 2?
Story isn't an issue, I have really low standards so I can enjoy almost anything as long as it isn't an incredible trainwreck.
Why the fuck were these things never wallpaper size?
There's gotta be some, right?
>The game was bad
I would honestly just recommend playing the first one and skipping the second one unless you really liked the first one.
2 is the worst overall, still a good game but the characters are grating and the maps are rather small, it's also pretty balanced
3 is better overall, better characters, better atmosphere, better balance, still stuck with those tiny ass maps
1 is the best, but is also unbalanced and broken compared to 2 and 3. Maps are huge so your units can finally stretch their legs though.
I just finished this game the other day, the ending got me teary. Anyone knows the name of the first song that plays at the credits, the piano one?
>light tank capable of killing every non-boss unit in one hit across the other side of the map
Because it balances out everything pretty well. Tanks are all 1 CP, but have limited ammunition and different AP levels between light, medium, and heavy bodies and APCs, though super-turrets still exist late-game, which makes Engineers useful again.
Fencers are nerfed, but they now deploy barriers that make them useful in setting up temporary walls to block some interception fire that your lighter infantry may not be able to handle just straight-running.
Special Points to burn on Valkyrian mode (when you absolutely must headshot someone or radiator something halfway across the map with the power of a Valkyria), multi-attack mode (Imca-only, but allows hitting of multiple targets at once, and useable regardless of her class), and 3-man team mode (Kurt-only, allows him to function much like an APC, except more powerful in a sense since he and the two he pulls along will attack together if they all have a clear line of sight).
Only thing I'm disappointed about is the lack of playable special classes like Gatling Troopers. Even in the Calamity Raven mission shorts, you don't get to use them or the Echidna or even Zieg and Dahau with their special weapons.
Tons of extra missions; though some aren't translated (the translation patch was for the Extra Edition, which does include some DLC missions and extras by default).
Best Calamity Raven related.
So if I haven't played VC1 yet, I shouldn't watch this?
I wanted to experience the reaction faces.
I wish someone would sub Die Tokyo Encounter already.
I don't recall a piano ending (is it different on the regular edition?) but the title of the solemn orchestral arrangement during the credits is Unnamed Heroes (Disc 2 of the OST), followed by one or another song depending on the girl you followed through and their cutscene.
>followed by one or another song depending on the girl you followed through and their cutscene.
Are we talking about VC1? I don't remember that happening
how do you get audrey's tank? is it dlc?
Is it worth waiting for a full translation then? I usually play all the side missions because I hate grinding.
The anime adds a 3rd party character (a minor interest for Isara) and adds more Alicia antics, as well as bit of a love triangle between her, Welkin, and Faldio. Changes a few key scenes too, but gets the general points across.
Really, I loved it for the extra ending; which showed off a very special scene that I felt was missing.
What I meant to ask was, it's going to spoil all the major stuff from the game, correct?
If it helps the song i'm talking about starts at 7:53
Absolutely beautiful, made the ending something else for me.
Ah, thought you were referring to VC3 for some reason. Let me dig through tracks.
One of the sidequests or DLCs IIRC. The Edelweiss' body is also obtainable.
Aside from Carisa's mission, the rest aren't too bad. You'll really just miss out on the Calamity Raven side as well. Most of them are straightforward missions; after playing through a few of the main series quests, you will figure out the gist of the missions just by glancing at the maps and markings.
As an extra note, a special mission is added post-game if you've done all main story side missions, split missions, and watched all cutscenes.
I was really enjoying it, and then somewhere along the way I just started losing interest, I still finished it but it was pretty forgettable by the end.
Uruwashi no Gallia
Not on YT, but the piano piece that plays at the time you specified is definitely what I listed.
>still hoping sega would do something logical
I seriously hope you guys aren't sega masochists
Edy Nelson a best.
Thanks a ton man, i've been desperately searching for it
how do you get carisa's mission? I've been using her a lot but still haven't gotten it. do you have to beat the game first?
I believe it's an extra mission post-game mission. Doesn't add any special trait to Carisa though. It's not translated (at least, on the patch that came out in December) either.
No prob. I strongly recommend you buy the CD set if you can. Plenty of good music. The discs are all organized as Disc 1 mainly having the "good team" music and Disc 2 mainly having the "opposition" music.
The specific track is on Disc 1.
I've only ever seen the first episode. I never played the game. Judging from this, it looks like an improvement in terms of appearance and personality for Alicia.
She looks kinda dull and lifeless in the top pic.
Alicia was actually better in the game; may have been exasperated with Welkin, but didn't act as ridiculous as they made her in the anime. Then again, everyone but Welkin and Isara were made more "anime-esque" for the anime. Maximillian, Selvaria, Jaeger, and Gregor are also fairly the same as their game counterparts, but of course, they're the antagonists.
You know, i bought this game without knowing anything about it, and i tought that Selvaria was from the good guys. Then, she showed up in the empire, and i was so sure that she would came to Gallia's side, or something like that. I seriously never expected what happened
Snipers become useful during the middle to end of the game, after you've upgraded them enough to have good accuracy.
Get your scouts upgraded pronto. Scout Rush is a viable tactic. Learn it. Live it. Love it.
> If you want to use a controller, PPSSPP works fine with a 360 controller
That's like borderline blasphemous. Fucking Xinput is Microsoft being fucktards as usual.
Level up Snipers, Scouts, and Shocks, and maybe Engineers. Lancers can come in last.
Scouts and Shocks because at around level 20-25? they gain a sub-weapon (grenade launcher and flamer respectively).
Sniper and Engineer just because you'll be using them often; the former to take down annoying Imperial shits from across the map and the latter to keep your tank(s) alive and operational (moreso if you use them as shields and mine-clearing units).
Use Dallas as your engineer and always keep Alicia near her
Meant to post in relation to >>101824081.
They get the weapong at level 10
Oh Aliasse the plans they had for you. But you'll eventually grow into form.
Been a long time. Thanks for the correction.
I was just happy my favorite sniper had screen time.
Yeah, she sounds boring.
It wasn't utterly shit, but it was mediocre imo. All in all, despite a few retarded things I was okay with it. Worth one watch if you don't have anything else to watch, but don't expect miracles.
Wish I had a PS3, I heard the game is actually one of the best RTS games on the platform.
It's more turn based like FFT or Fire Emblem, only without grid movement and with free aim.
I wish I could motivate myself to finish VC but I just can't. The maps drag on way too long.
Also, fuck NTR.
I have Valkyria Chronicles 1 for PS3 and 2 for PSP. I began playing Valkyria Chronicles 1 with a friend, but he gave up quickly and didn't want to play it nor watch me play it. But other than Valkyria Chronicles, I have about 50 other titles in my shelf to finish up.
Also fuck NTR.
Why is Welkin so sweaty?
How is the DLC for the first game? i am up to the battle with the big ass tank and the valkyria stuff is stating to come up, so i was just wondering if any of them are worth picking up for when i am further in the game.
is she pregnant?
>Never had a PS3 or any Sony console
The Selvaria DLC is a good one, but I'm unsure about when to suggest playing it. It felt like a good look at Selvaria, but if you haven't played through enough of the story, it won't have as much of an impact.
It also gives you a completely broken Shocktrooper weapon.
Huge fan of VC1 and put an ungodly amount of hours into VC2. The anime is not good, disappointing and in the view of everyone not a fan, bad.
The one on the right isn't an Aliasse concept, it's another Valkyur that was supposed to be paired up with her. The cowtits ones was calm and naive, while Aliasse would be violent and bloodthirsty.
Ultimately they only kept Aliasse (which added some variety to the usual Valkyurs we saw).
This nigga right here. You keep him in your squad.
>you will never fall asleep between Severia-sama's giant tits
Being poorfag is suffering.
>90 reaction faces from Alicia
So it was still missing 11
Haha, time for Brad!
>So /a/, is Valkyria Chronicles the anime adaptation good or bad?
It left a cliffhanger, and killed off the little sister, became a mess a pile of spaghetti season end.
I pitty such good art quality were too good to waste.
I only did this so you all won't be angry with disappointment.
