Valkyria Chronicles is straight-up awesome. With cool characters and a great tactical Gameplay type that is nicely blended with Third Person Shooter aspects. The story is good stuff too. Quite engaging. For PS3.
Vesperia is awesomesauce as well, but is almost a polar opposite to Valkyria. The plot is light only skimming some dark spots of "enforcing one's justice". The characters are all pretty snarky. Cool, cute, quirky, but snarky. It's great because it tends to follow the Rules of Funny(Character Interactions), Fun(The Battle System), Cool(Yuri). The game was somewhat shallow in areas. Whereas they made great characters, but they were all just as enigmatic in the end as in the start. It didn't bother me until my second time around though... To be honest, and then it REALLY bugged me. The movie and PS3 version seem to be adding QUITE a bit more to the story. So they may be patching that up somewhat. Here's hoping they make it stateside. Oh god I hope so. I hope it isn't Symphonia all over again!! It's a fantastic game! I just hope the anime prequel movie is good too!
Hrrrr... I'm sitting here... Waiting for more Tales.
Gonna watch Mr. Despair.
