Eurogamer writes: every Sunday we bring you a feature selected from our archive. This week, to celebrate the imminent PC launch of Valkyria Chronicles, we bring you Paul Dean's fine words on Sega's modern classic. This article was originally published in December 2012.
Was it really four years ago now that the Second Europan War began? Is the PlayStation 3 really supposed to be six years old? I refuse to believe it. It's just not possible. Whenever I slip the Valkyria Chronicles Blu-ray into a console that's supposed to be at the end of its life cycle I get no sense of age, no feeling of a looming obsolescence or an imminent loss of status. No; time stops.
