This is Alicia Melchiott, the beautiful and righteous scout of squad 7. She dreams of one day being a baker so everyone can try her delicious bread! Say something nice about her anon's.
So what are they going to do now that Selvaria is by far the most popular girl and has become the face of the series?
Will they somehow asspull her back into the game? Or will they keep her dead for a consistent stories, knowing that fans hate it and they will forever hinder their sales?
You anon's have great taste in girls!
You can finish almost every mission in 1 round with >>152277457
That one that respawns adds?
What the fuck are you doing? My biggest problem with the game is that it WAY too fucking easy.
Just use scouts to kill everything from a distance after giving them the accuracy order first.
Use the rocket dudes to kill the occasional tank and the engineers to restock them if you have to. Don't use anything else.
It was way to simple and most of the units you have are not even useful. Welkin or whatever his name was is completely useless once he gets into his shitty tank.
If it makes the game to easy then try something else, the game inst forcing you to scout rush or take the easy route. I went through the game with little trouble years ago and during my second play through I tried different stuff to give myself a challenge.
This is Alicia Melchiott, the biggest slut of Squad 7.
She looks like a rhinoceros beetle.
>pretty good amount of Selvaria doujins
>most of them are her getting the shit raped out of her by the fat fuck voiced by Bender in the English version
Just because she knows how to make a man happy doesn't make her a slut! She's beautiful and kind-hearted, all she wants is for you to be happy, no bullying allowed.
Just look at this adorable face, can you really be mean to her and still call yourself a man?
cake sniper is also cute
I didn't realize it was an option until like halfway through the game, not all of them do that you know. Fucking Drakengard even makes you pay for it, and you pretty much have to if you want the proper Zero and not the garbage English one.
I prefer Catherine, personally.
>sexy Irish accent
in the dub
>weakness that isn't too crippling but makes her extra cute and protectable
I want to come to her rescue when she runs out of ammo and carry her back to safety in both arms.
Good, so you know what's up.
I preferred Jane Turner, and Wendy Cheslock. Then again I love those kinds of women more.
Yes, she is. As was Selvaria.
I always just used 'proper' tictacs regardless, I never even realized scout rushes were a thing.
I'm still stuck on the first supertank with all the generators you have to climb up and hit.
How the fuck do you not realize that scout rushing is a thing when the game literally forces you to do it during the first few missions because you only have scouts?
Didn't the thought of "Hmm now I have all those units but actually they are just performing shittier than Alicia did during the first few missions" cross your mind?
See the biggest problem about scout rushing is not that it is some overpowered strategy, but it is literally the first and only strategy that the game teaches you.
It isn't difficult to have all your troops positioned so they have either a wall or the Eidelweiss between them and her. She's autistic enough that if she can't see anything, then she'll just stand next to the Batomys and waste her turns scratching Welkin's paint.
I'm stuck where Alicia is a dang cripple, wandering through a field with Welkin looking for ~herbal medicines~ while getting shot at with the random artillery shell and misc foot soldiers. Even giant selvaria tank was easier than this
No, I meant that I did EVERYTHING byt the IRL books. I had her Solid Snake the shit taking them all out one-by-one through those missions and used proper street-clearing tictacs in the urban missions, using the tank as direct infantry support and making sure not to stray too far outside it's line of sight.
Scoutrushing literally never occurred to me.
Who did you project yourself onto, /a/, assuming it wasn't Welkin? For me it was pic related.
So you're a crazy mountain man who loves mercilessly slaughtering imp scum then? I think we'll get along just fine.
I didn't self-insert as anyone, but I loved Nina.
That said, I think Sega could make a profitable VC sequel that matches the first if they included a customizable self-insert character.
As well as the ability to marry squadmates.
Same. I had an absolute blast playing through the story and using a huge variety of units. Failed a few missions, had people die, took over 40 hours but my god was it fun.
I also think I was underleveled, I think all my troops were level 11 at the end.
Then I looked online and saw scout rushing, tried that out and it obliterated everything but it wasn't fun at all.
>that love triangle subplot in the anime
Who thought that was a good idea? She was constantly wet over Faldio in the anime while in the game she only had eyes for Welkin.
To be fair who wouldn't want a sexy piece of man meat like that over a geeky autist who hides in his tank every battle jerking off to squirrels or whatever? All Faldio wanted to do was win the war, Alicia's the slut that got drenched by his sheer masculinity.
I had no clue scout rushing was a thing. I always ran two snipers (Catherine/Mairna) and relied heavily on shock troopers. My entire unit save for Welkin/Largo(?) was female. Zero non-story deaths.
>Sega will never make a true Valkyria Chronicles game on a home console again
It's not Faldio I have a problem with in the anime, it's Alicia. In the games their relationship is normal. But in the anime she's constantly lusting for his dick.
Though Faldio wanting to fuck her in the first place is out of character for him too.
This guy fucking gets it, this game is great if you play it how you want following tactics and planning shit out. No shit the game would be boring if you just mindlessly run through every mission.
>no sequel with milf alicia and her daughter are playable
>instead we get some spin off that looks like shit and nobody wants
Why did Sega fuck this franchise up so badly? It all started when they decided to release the sequel on the PSP.
DEATH TO REPUBLICAN SCUM!
That's not even the worst part. The worst thing they did in the anime is killing of fucking Vyse.
ENEMIES OF THE EMPIRE SHALL BE CRUSHED
One of my favorite games of all time, I was going to watch the anime at some point but from reading this thread it seems the anime takes a shit all over everything, including the character art. I usually dont like 3d anime designs but Alicia is far more beautiful in the game than the anime version.
>talking about a series that does anything to jump on whatever bandwagon for more sales
>"hmm will they bring x back, the thing otakus liked the most?"
Do you even need an answer?
I will never understand how this giraffe was so popular when Japs ONCE AGAIN failed to realize that collars go over the neck. You can't give someone a neck above their four inch collar.
Awful picture from Google but I haven't played the game in a long time to properly grab a screenshot.
Jane is my personal favorite. I remember beating the Cordelia rescue mission with her alone.
That face makes me laugh every time
"Pull up your trousers we visiting the enemy"
"I heard young men speak of secret base in Antartica...Idiots!Its a whaling station, i worked zhere before the war broke out, the only thing secret about it was how extremely miserable it was, which you didn't find out until you got there!"
I want to bully her.
How do you even fuck up that badly? It's like overcooking a bowl of cereal, yet somehow they managed to go above and beyond bullshit and make some of the most amazingly braindead decisions possible for this adaptation. It also proves the faggots never played Skies of Arcadia.
But at least we know the game is true canon and none of that stupid shit actually happened so it's not like it really affects anything.
CRAWWWWWLING IN MY SKINNNNNN
You posted the wrong image, let me fix that for you.
>>playing the english dub
We have to be honest, Jann and Wendy Cheslock are reasons to actually play with the dub.
You can't not have fun with Gay Bender, and Wendy's English VA knocked it out of the park. If her Japanese VA did the same job, she'd be more popular than the annoying pacifist drillhair.
Imca is always cute.
Selvaria helped her obtain her cutest form.
>take a tactics game that suddenly made a nice profit by putting it on PC
>turn it into a musou console game, since japan hated the tactics games
>reuse Selvaria from VC1
>make her an antagonist again
SEGA in charge of good ideas. I would've preferred an Valkyria Chronicles fumoffu where Alicia and Selvaria ran a restaurant together serving fresh-baked bread and soup of the day. Maximillian, meanwhile, is opening Pizza Hut franchises everywhere.
Sega hasn't been good since the 90's
Dub dubs of truth
that comic shows the desert sandstorm level before the massive tank right? I'm sure that's the way you're meant to do that mission, you'd get shredded by the tanks if you tried to advance normally, there's no cover
D'i'd' I' d'o' i't' r'i'g'h't'?'
It's a mission that practically requires a perfect first two rounds which can be save scummed.
Basically, use the Edelweiss and your Lancers to take down all the machine guns on the side
then, all you need now is a Shocktrooper to sit at the base camp so no-one slips in and takes it, one lancer to knock down the walls, an engineer to keep the Edelweiss in one piece and a few scouts. When you blow up the radiators, with no more machine guns, the scouts can approach unchallenged. Make sure the last radiator to be destroyed is the one that's on the right hand side of the tank, so it's on the other side of where Selvaria is
It's a fun mission, really, Selvaria really punishes you leaving cover
Valkyria DLC for CoH2 when?
Lelic can get mad dosh since whole community filled with weebs.
What's with this race being so ample in tiddies?
Natural selection and reproduction favor them?
Valkyrian men or whoever propagated the Valkyrur race of literal tittymonsters were of patrician taste.
Scout ahead with Welkin.
Point blank headshot everyone in Alicia's way.
Follow up with Alicia, kill everything else.
To max rank you must use Alicia twice each turn to rush the objective.
Grab the hidden herbs to fix Alicia's movement speed.
New VC anime when?
She's nice, cute, OP, her game was fun, her romance subplot was nice and refreshingly sweet and she's voiced by one of my favorite seiyuus.
But if we're being serious, Nina was better in my opinion. I love me /fit/ women. Most of the girls in the game were great though
They need to finish her history too.
>I remember beating the Cordelia rescue mission with her alone.
Cordelia rescue mission is easy.
Just ignore your Jew imouto and let the armored car go down the first alley. Then it's in a prime position to run behind, shout orders, and blast its radiator.
I wish they'd make a prequel set during EW1.
Too bad SEGA only like Selvaria and Juliana (for some reason)
>VC3 has best Valkyrie
>VC2 has best Darcsens
>VC has best boys and non-valkyria/darcsen girls
>VC has best boys
That's also VC3. Characters like Vyse and Wavy are nice, but they aren't as good as Alfons, Giulio and Felix.
I'd also say VC3 has best Darcsens because Imca exists.
>tfw shark teeth dark skinned blond haughty superior waifu to the point others can't compete CAN'T actually compete because she belongs to an unsuccessful and overlooked game.
She actually had a worse fate than Selvaria.
I would have done the same, if it weren't for Largo, Vyse, Wavy, Hector and Hannes. The rest were kind of annoying or not too useful, but then again so were a lot of the women, especially Susie. It takes a lot to make me hate a cute ojou with lovely drills but she was such a pure shit.
This is General Sir Anthony Cecil Hogmanay Melchett. He is a brave hero and cunning strategist.
It was fun, gameplay was hard mode compared to VC and VC3 given that you pretty much only had 5 open slots. It felt a lot like Pokemon in a way. I do like the anime cut scenes they added into it.
Well no kidding, who were the new guys going to fight now that the war was over? All they had was that small civil war lead by some of the people from the war.
Wendy was such a fucking cute.
>adorable giggles when shooting people
Only real drawback is that she doesn't have any friends so no ally status boosts.
It was my first VC game, since I had a PSP but no PS
I had fun with it, leveling up characters, upgrading their classes and doing your squadmates' personal missions was nice
I also improved my Japanese vocab with it, learned words like medic, sniper, or target destroyed
Well too bad the game fucking grades you ONLY on the number of turns.
There's literally no way to get A ranks without scout rushing, other units simply can't get through the entire map that fast.
Marina was always my favourite but Dallas was pretty cute too, even if she was a lesbian.
She was the best engineer with best potentials, I constantly kept her near Alicia for the status boost and the Eidelweiss to keep it in top shape. And also so that it would be all the sweeter when Welkin cucked the living fuck out of her and NTR'd her so badly by impregnating and Marrying Alicia that she had to try and Rebound off of Rosie.
This fat guy was unexpectedly cool.
She is the only one with real talent
I liked that girl who hated killing people, Susie.
I had her kill the most people, always. I'm not usually like that, but she hated it SO much.
I haven't even played the game.
>the mission where you have to fuck up the super tank in the desert and then Selvaria shows up
This is your bride.
That one was so much fun though.
Perhaps I'm wrong, but I don't recall it being overly difficult either, though I do remember fortunately having the supertank in between my units and Selvaria when she appeared.
Otherwise, like other anons have said, the game really was pretty easy. The fact that there are people mentioning savescumming is bewildering.
For people playing without spoiling themselves, that's the first mission where you get slapped on the ass. It was not hard but most haven't really figured the game out at that point so getting carved up by Selvaria laser was rough.
The only real difficult mission in my opinion was the flame tank infinite reinforcement one, which borders on BS, and that's really only difficult once mostly become of the element of surprise.
Just about every mission has a cheese tactic.
Most of them involve super boosting Alicia and marathoning down the map taking .5 damage from a thousand soldiers to plant the flag turn 1.
It's a weird JRPG instead of a weird JSRPG.
Swinging much harder into fantasy and not possessing anything resembling the original concept. It also just doesn't look good, IMO. On the bright side it's just a spinoff.
It threw out all the strategy and military elements and now you have another "A bunch of special snowflakes do another David vs the Goliath" now with 1000% more ragnite -powered giant mecha bosses and a Selvaria clone.
Combination of WW2/WW1 tech merged with 19th century Calvary
The artbook cover is misleading though. None of your units use swords by default. You have to reclass them yourself.
They have very little presence in the actual game. Same goes for the hammers.
What hammers in VC3 are rocket powered? They look like just metal to me.
1. Grind EXP/cash on side missions if you have to.
2. Orders are broken as hell, especially ones that prevent damage, or ones like Demolition Boost that allow rifle-armed infantry to be tank murderers.
3. Get rifle grenades on your Scouts to flush people out of cover; "leapfrog" multiple scouts to murder units that just got flushed out of cover.
4. Don't underestimate the utility of your Engineers, whether it's by healing your tank/units or keeping your Snipers and Lancers at full ammo.
>The anime exists
>The anime made her have the hots for Faldio
Anime truly was a mistake.
Why couldn't they make a full length series of VC3? Even the two-episode OVAs were already 10 times better than the VC1 anime.
>Isara's eyebrows are thick and cute
>anime has them be paper thin
Agreed. It would have been one of the few anime that I would have liked to have been "3d"
She's pretty great. I wish to impregnate her and take responsibility.
Alicia and Rosie can be useful, though. Largo isn't the best Lancer, unfortunately; not to mention the fact that Lancers are made almost completely obsolete with Demolition Boost.
Dubtrips of truth, VC3 was way better than VC anime.
More dubtrips, It means you like it.
I'm ok with giant mechs, and I love Selvaria, but no more tactical troop deploying? No more crawling through the grass to sneak up on people, or having scouts clear a path while snipers climb up and get perched on buildings? What the fuck? VC was unique and fun because of that gameplay style.
>VC2 though, mistakes were made.
Is VC2 really bad or something?
I was going to play that since I beat VC1 last week.
VC2 is a very flawed game with questionable design choices. You should still play it and experience it for yourself.
VC3 is the better psp game and even surpasses the first in areas. You should definitely play that one if you enjoyed the first game.
it's not actually bad
gameplay was improved though maps suffered
people just got mood whiplash from the military academy setting (and i'd argue it was more because of people's expectations rather than any of the changes the game did)
they still have the VC atmosphere even if it's toned down (and it wasn't toned down that much)
>Good discussion of a game with an anime adaptation and art by Raita
You're right, this is horrible. How about some yurifag and fujo shitposting, some "My wife X" and then some retards screaming about machine translations of some shitty isekai LN and his the anime is shit because it's not one long string of internal monologue in broken English like the LN they read?
Selvaria is prime gap moe material.
Have you praised Prince notLelouch today?
Am I the only one that hated the plot twist? It didn't need it. The game started off strong with a squad of patriots fighting to free their homeland, then it turned into magic powers and artifacts bullshit.
I think you mean LiterallyReinhard
First time playing VC1 was over the summer. I'm genuinely sad I will never experience it for the first time ever again.
Early on I got addicted to using shocktroopers and Nina, Wendy, and Aisha became my default sweep-and-kill team.
However, one major problem with this game is that there are too many best girls. I get confused when I'm presented with this many choices.
Why do people call it "Scout rushing"?
You don't play as "Scouts". You play as Alicia - no one else. She is the single most powerful character in the entire game with the most broken potentials ever. Just use the Awaken Potential order and you get a near 100% chance for all your potentials to activate.
>"You can do this! Trust in yourself!" (Welkin)
>run forward, get shot a bit
>"Think you can stop me?" (resists damage)
>"I'm a weapon... No! A shield!" (buffs all stats)
>"What!? My wounds are healing..." (fully heals you)
>shoot at enemy
>"Don't even think of dodging!" (guaranteed hit)
>use up all your AP
>"Once more, with feeling!" (restores your ap)
>repeat, rushing through the whole map
it's hilarious hearing her constantly spamming these lines while mowing down an army
This game has dual audio.
What the hell were you doing using the English voices?
How was the anime? I remember in the game I was pretty upset how nobody cared and were just "whatever, we'll make a world she would have wanted" despite allowing her to get out of tank in a non-secure are without any perimeter guards up.
You should have seen her and Welkin's wedding night.
You can do this! Trust in yourself!
Think you can stop me?
Once more, with feeling!
Once more, with feeling!
What?! My wounds are healing..."
Once more, with feeling!
Once more, with feeling!
They were NASTY times.
>this had to be trolling right?
Unfortunately not anon. They shoehorned a love triangle plot in the anime for no good reason and made Alicia a thirsty slut.
But it's fine since the anime isn't canon and can be completely disregarded. In the game she only liked Welkin.
More like military terminology is difficult to understand and especially translate. Like how "teichou" best translates approximately to "unit leader" but is almost always translated as "captain".
I have an inexplicable urge to breed with that filthy darcsen.
Are you retarded?
They are making fantasy video games, not writing your pathetic country garbage and humiliating military history.
He really didn't for the most part.
He had proper motivations for what he did even if his execution wasn't perfect.
Only near the end did it get a bit silly.
Made that after story with his sister all the better.
To put it simply, everyone was immediately saddened and distraught over Isara's death except Welkin. Rosie herself broke down a few times and had nightmares about it.
Welkin in particular had it rough. He was in the akward position of being the commanding officer who is supposed to be a steadfast symbol of the group, but had just lost his last family member. He also had to come to terms that he was just like his dad in this regard, where neither of them could protect their family from war.
In the end, he spent two episodes just being an ass to everyone around him and bottling his emotions. Finally, after retaking Bruhl, he visited his old house and, after some words from Alicia, completely broke down sobbing and screaming in anguish inside Isara's old room.
Maybe it was because I had recently almost lost a family member irl, but that scene made me sad and nearly had me crying.
