Lazy Sunday – Valkyria Chronicles Is Still My Valentine

Lazy Sunday
So it occurred to me while slurping the necessary amount of coffee to spark my bones to life for another day that I spend quite a bit of my Sunday morning half-mindlessly checking out websites, and that perhaps I could make a thing out of that. Time will tell if this continues or not I suppose.

Anyway, it’s Valentine’s Day, which would be incomplete without some game related cardness in Japanese, so says I, and the girls of Valkyria Chronicles 2 have me covered via Famitsu. Famitsu also has a very sweet page for 100mt, or Patchwork Heroes for those of us in the land of poorly named NA PSP games.

As always the good Rebels at 4cr have the best Valentine’s Day Cards. Though Mitch didn’t have time to do it up right and proper this year, the choice between Snake’s two greatest admirers from MGS is much appreciated – though a third one with Liquid might have been an additionally nice touch.

In other news, and to wrap this up so I can get back to my coffee, I came across yet another comparison between game box art releases in different regions, which is entirely important because I had no idea that the Japanese cover for Batman Returns was so incredibly awesome – so much so that I have to use the word awesome. Near the bottom of that same page you’ll also find Shadowrun, where the Japanese cover definitely feasts on a rich Blade Runner vein to really capture how I thought of the game back when it released.

Happy Valentine’s Day, if only so that I can offer much love from a guy named love.


  1. Thanks for sharing the love!

  2. I lent my copy of Valkyria Chronicles to my cousin so he could enjoy the game as well. Now I just need him to finish the game so I can get into the DLC for it.

  3. oh man, if there’s anything better than playing as Selvaria, I don’t want to know about it.

  4. So I’ve read. Good thing I bought all the DLC in december during the sale. Still, for those that didn’t, the new Valentines Pack for $10 is only $1 more than what you would have paid in december, so buy it before it goes up back to $15!
