If you didn't know, Valkyria Chronicles is a ported game from PS3 to PC. It just released on Steam in the past year. I picked it up during one of the big Steam sales. Although I played it on PC I used a controller the whole time, and I would highly recommend it. The game plays great with a controller.
Valkyria Chronicles does some Standard tactical combat stuff but it also does some really cool tactical stuff too. When you move a character you jump behind them into a third person shooter view and start free roaming. When you stop to fire at an enemy you actually aim your weapon. One of my favorite parts of the game is the Command Point (CP) system. Instead of every unit taking one turn during your round, you are given a certain amount of CP and you can use it as you see fit. It's typically enough to activate each unit once, if that's what you want to do. But, more interesting, is being able to activate the same unit multiple times by spending more CP on them. It adds an amazing layer that's a ton of fun to play with.
Based on how many chapters are in the game I'm about a fourth of the way through it. Unless I hit a roadblock of difficulty I think I'm going to keep working on this game slowly until I finish it. It's really hitting the spot.
