As you can probably tell, I chose to use this image because it contained great quantities of side-boob action from none other than Selvaria. I hope you appreciate the thought that went into selecting the image to use for this blog entry.
I wrote a review of Valkyria Chronicles quite some time back and while it is one hell of a great game, it’s unfortunate that not many people are buying it and discovering how great it is for themselves… well at least until recently when we started getting reports that Valkyria Chronicles got a sudden sales boost. A lot of why I think the game is getting a boost in sales is because of the newly released Valkyria Chronicles anime in Japan, however it may also have to do with the download content popping up on the PlayStation Network spurring people to find out exactly what this game is all about.
There are three separate packs to download and I’ll try to go through them in here without being spoilerific.
Enter the Edy Detachment
This mission features Jann and other lesser characters not worth mentioning… okay, okay, Marina is worth mentioning but that’s about it. I’ve personally never been a fan of Edy, especially when she gains her “Rosie Hater” potential in the main game. There’s no room for Rosie haters in my squad.
Anyway lol, the first thing people want to know about DLC is, “is it worth buying?”… is Enter the Edy Detachment worth buying? No. Not unless you’re a Valkyria Chronicles nut like I am and would’ve bought it anyway (or you just wanted to have even more Jann goodness) . The reason it’s not worth buying is because it’s a single straight forward and boring mission that isn’t very special at all. A group from Squad 7 gets cut off from the others and Edy takes it upon herself to yada, yada, yada…
Behind Her Blue Flame
On the other hand you have Selvaria’s mission pack… yes, a mission pack, not just a single mission. Anyone who has played Valkyria Chronicles knows who Selvaria is and knows exactly why they need to get this mission pack. For those who don’t know, the only thing you need to know is that she’s the one with the huge tits. In any case, this mission pack has it all and more if you’re good enough. You get to play as the enemy, you get to control Selvaria herself and watch that crazy breast jiggle animation as she runs, and you get to play through a number of levels… but I won’t tell you how many, all I’ll tell you is that you’d better aim for an A rank for all the levels right from the start.
While the Edy mission isn’t really worth it, I feel that you can’t miss out on Selvaria’s mission pack. It’s well worth the money and you’ll spend plenty of time enjoying… you know… what you see.
Hard EX Mode
This pack is ONLY for the challenge lovers out there who don’t mind failing your mission a few hundred times trying to figure out exactly how to achieve victory. This pack basically does one simple thing: it adds an Expert difficulty mode to all of the Skirmish missions. Bottom line is this one shouldn’t be bought unless you’re very much into Valkyria Chronicles and play it almost religiously.
Normally you would have access to your tank, the Edelweiss, in the skirmish missions, however for Expert mode, Welkin will have to go on foot as a scout. The unfortunate thing is that Welkin isn’t a very good scout and in pretty much every expert skirmish mission you’re set up with a scenario that could mean that Welkin is put in imminent danger if you don’t do something about it right away. If you lose Welkin, it’s game over… and you’ll be seeing quite a lot of that lol. It’ll frustrate some, but for those who love a challenge? My advice is to do as Vyse does… “Woooie! Our hero’s in trouble now…haha!”
