Week 2 of New Game Plus 4 where we're playing Valkyria Chronicles, chosen by the community!
New Game Plus is a community event where we all gather together to reach the same checkpoint of the same game each week. By doing this, in depth discussion is promoted as everyone is experiencing the same parts of a game at the same time. To join in with NGP, you need to grab a copy of the current game, find out what the current week's checkpoint, play along, and then join in the discussion!
This season of NGP sees us picking up Valkyria Chronicles! This is a tactical role-playing game that came out in 2008 from Sega. It's pretty popular amongst Unionites, so I wouldn't be surprised if most people have already played it, but never fear, there will always be some first timers!
This is the second week for this brand new season, so there's still time to catch up and join in! Be sure to check the guidelines to participate and for details of where to play up until. Make sure to come back regularly to let us know how you're finding the game!
Valkyria Chronicles is to be split into five sections. This is Week 2!
The checkpoint which you need to play up to is:
Play until the end of Chapter 7!
Inside the following spoiler tags are the titles for each chapter you go through before you get to this point, just to dispel any confusion:
Chapter 4: Operation Cloudburst
Chapter 5: The Kloden Wildwood
Chapter 6: A Desert Encounter
Chapter 7: The Battle at Barious
ALL DISCUSSION FOR WEEK 2 IN THIS THREAD.
(Previously: Introduction Thread
, Week 1
All previous New Game Plus threads can be found in the dedicated section on the forums!
Also if you need any clarification of the guidelines then please ask!
Have fun, guys!
- A new thread will go up each Thursday telling you where the next check point is. All discussion for each section must go in the relevant threads. Previous threads will remain open to let people catch up and let the conversation continue if they're a little behind or joined late.
- You MUST resist playing on past the scheduled check points. I know it's sometimes too tempting, but for these discussion threads to work we need to all be at the same point in the game. Besides, it's not in the spirit of this activity! However, there are plenty of side-quests for you to fill up your time, so maybe take a look at those.
- Please don't post spoilers for things that haven't happened in the game yet. We love that you're enthusiastic about it, but some people will be playing for the first time.
- However, you CAN post spoilers for anything that happens within the given section of the game. It would be thoughtful to use the [ spoiler][/spoiler ] tags to protect those still playing through, but it's not strictly necessary.
- There are no topics off limits here, so talk about anything and everything! Story is just one aspect, but if you love the sound design or hate the map, then speak up! Get a little more specific and in depth than usual!
- If you find yourself lost or stuck at any given point, post into this thread! The good thing with NGP is that people are playing alongside you and will remember exactly how to help you out!
- On the other side of the coin, if you've played this game before, feel free to take on a challenge and tell us all about how you're doing.
- Remember to HAVE FUN!
