I admit I've never played a Valkyrie Profile game in my life. I picked up the case for the PSP game, took a look at it, and I thought "generic". That's when it ended up back on the shelf again, I never gave it another thought.
// ClaDun?! I'm still looking forward to it. Maaaan, my wishlist is just getting bigger and bigger! Strangely, the logo makes me think of... pixel... pixel... 3D Pixel something... for the PS3... that game Atlus was going on and on about with parody videos. XD

And yeah, ClaDun logo reminded me of 3D Dot Game Heroes too. Hopefully ClaDun won't be a disappointment like 3DDGH was. I mean, it wasn't a bad game in itself, but it definitely wasn't up to par with 2D Zelda games. And the final dungeon was absolutely terrible.
I know I recommended the game as a must-have for FSN fans and as a good game for whoever never heard of the nasuverse but it doesn't mean that I like everything in the game.
While I love the graphics and the story, I truly loathe the battle system ! The concept of Janken implemented in the game seems interesting at first but after my first playthrough (Saber <3), I started hating the game because of that system. Even though after clearing the game once, you get all patterns you've discovered to beat the crap out of these stupids data-whores real quick, it gets so damn boring that I almost gave up clearing the game with Caster and Archer... T^T
Currently, I'm playing Fate EXTRA New Game+ to beat the crap out of the secret boss which is, guess who, Ryougi *^*. It's said that she killed 99 servants before you meet her~. And just for th sake of getting 'raped' by her deadly dagger, you can't hate this game XD !
So, even though I hate its lame battle system, I like the plot and most of the characters(You get to fight Arcueid dammit XD !).
Good thing I remembered my Visual Novel playing habits, I saved before each choice! This way, I can clear the game again and get different endings with the least suffering possible~
I've played a few hours' worth of Fate/EXTRA... and honestly, while the story seems intriguing enough, and the graphics and music are good, the battle system is BEYOND godawful, and the writing is HEINOUSLY bad. The battle system depends entirely on trial and error (you literally just have to memorize a series of paper/scissor/rock patterns for each enemy in the game, and you'll only take damage if you failed to memorize these patterns properly!), and the writing has the feel of bad fanfiction (it tries to sound so deep, but HOLY CRAP is it pretentious!).
I don't recommend the game at all, personally. But then, I haven't seen the anime, so maybe my opinion would change if I did...
Why are you even playing Fate/Extra if you haven't seen the anime or played the visual novel? o.o
'Nasuverse' refers to the universe created by Kinoko Nasu(Creator of Type-Moon). It consists of Fate/Stay Night and its spinoffs/sequels/prequels, Tsukihime and its spinoffs/sequels/prequels and what have you, and Kara no Kyoukai.
At least, I think. lawl
