Any of you lot like Vandal Hearts, Fire Emblem and games of that ilk?

You probably owe it to yourself to at least rent Valkyrie Chronicles which is sucking me right in.

PS3 surprise of the year so far :)

I love the art direction in this. Looks really Ghibli-esque. Definitely one in my rental queue.

I've got it sitting there, but not cracked the seal. Too many games. :/

I feel your pain.

WoTLK is out in a few days along with Mirror's Edge. I've just picked up LBP and Valkyrie Chronicles.

I wouldn't even consider Fallout 3 or Fable 2 with that lot on the go. I need to clone myself.

This is very good, if tactics-lite so far. I'm sure it'll get a bit more complex later on but the story is certainly a higher standard than a lot of these types of games seem to be, if still a bit odd and twee.

Is there a demo of this up on the store?

I'm pretty sure there is. Played it last night again, got my tank :)

Graphics are gorgeous, loving the story and cut scenes.

Quite impressed by the demo, the skirmish mode was good fun, but the tutorial missions worried me with "Someone dies" fail conditions which I'm not a big fan of in strategy games.

The AI in the skirmish mode was a bit of a push over too, most likely deliberately, but I'd need some reassurance that the real game's AI is a bit better before I took the plunge.
