Valkyria Chronicles 2. Yes.

I’ve been thinking.

How amazing would it be if we got a second chance?
Not like with some fantastically improbable time-machine that is bound to mess with the space-time continuum till it’s beyond comprehension (it’s beyond comprehension in the first place actually).

How amazing would it be if we get born under the exact same circumstances and given the exact same opportunities as last time and so on and forth?

Obviously impossible but there have been clairvoyants who have ‘claimed’ to remember their past lives, though sometimes their past lives are not all that human.

Among other news, I spent today playing Valkyria Chronicles 2 on my beloved PSP and reading some weird articles on Cracked.com. Perhaps you’ve heard of it?

The game is a beautiful strategy game with unique gameplay. It has a typical over-heard map view component where you see all the units but it also has a 3-D over-the-shoulder action viewpoint component that deposits you in any character’s shoes to rain bullets or take out huge tanks by yourself with a well-aimed RPG.

And the story is incredible. True, inspiration wise, it’s a little tired. It all happens on the continent of Europa. Enuff said.

But the following story of racial prejudice, extremists and rebels is a story worth following with keen eyes and ears. It reads so much like a cautionary tale, especially in today’s times.

The artwork is beautiful, with typical Anime style. Not the huge boobs, huge eyes variety but delicate features and fine touches way. Each characters’ costumes are unique. At least in the conversation sequences and the cutscenes.

Lessons:

1. Life. Just life. A strangely though-provoking day. Life. Much is yet to be discovered in this grand tale and that fills me with both exhilaration and trepidation.

Word-retch complete.

Accomplishment.

  1. Wow. This got me thinking. What if it were true? What if after we die we just get born into the same life again and we get to do it all again and we actually know it’s our second chance? What if get to fix everything we’ve ever done wrong across a lifetime and if we still fail? We get another chance. We keep reliving until finally we’ve lived our life to the most perfect way possible. That would actually be an interesting idea of heaven. Also, you need to watch “Edge of Tomorrow” !
