Not really played it much but had a crack ata couple of missions seems really easy so far only up to the bit where you get a tank.

I say some dude who was called wall or something, but the dude ducked my shots i can't help but fell he was cheating. Should i redo this mission and destroy him i'm guessing he's worth a lot of XP. Only my scout was around so i couldn't finish him off.

Also how does levelling work in this?

I wasn't sure if killing more troops with one character gets you more XP or what. I noticed when i started only alicia had level 1 and welkin had nothing so i killed everyone with her but she hasn't levelled up.

All round though this game is really fun and i enjoy the story to.

Experience is awarded primarily for clearing the stage fast. Once you reach the HQ you can use the experience points to level up a whole class, not each unit independently.

Later on skirmishes become available. You can replay them as many times as you want for extra experience points.

Enemies duck sometimes if they have seen you. Especially enemy aces (troops with names) who give new weapons if killed (quite useless though).

You should do the skirmishes, they're fun.

pickinf out the swuad seems like a lot of effort

do i have to use characters in order to unlock personal potentials? or do they unlock automatically

it kinda feels like your thrown in at the deep end when that organise your party screen shows up. I feel like just building up my snipers at the moment, but i'll probably do a even spread and see what i hate later

Snipers aren't really of importance in the beginning of the game.

i thought that, but they also seem just useless with such low stats, they're one shot doesn't even hit at the moment

whereas my scouts etc seem to kick ass

Snipers only come into their own late game, when they've levelled up and can pack more accurate weapons. Heck, Marina's final potential basically means she can one shot kill any visible human target no matter how far away they are

Still, scouts are your most important unit, no doubt. Especially Alicia. She's easily the best unit in the game.

I love the game, just don't give up when you inevitably die on chapter seven the first few tries.

For chapter 7, because it's long and you may get bored if something goes wrong and have to restart it, saving once every two turns, before spending any command points, is a good idea.

This game cheats like a motherfucker but I love it. Largo being voiced by Fred Tatascoire is proof that the voice director knew what they were doing.

To her credit, she's very downplayed in this. She only plays two characters, one of which disappears at the halfway point and the other has a few lines at the end.

My snipers are killing pretty much everything in one shot (thats not in cover).

Currently i'm mainly using:
Snipers: Oscar, Catherine
Scouts: Freesia, Allicia
Lancer: Largo (haven't really got a choice as he gives a command point and i don't want more then one yet)
Engineer: The girl one
Shocktroopers: Salinas, Rosie (again i have to use her)

Salinas completely annihilated the enemy camp single handedly in chapter 4

Gonna need to change my team up a bit in chap 5 though seems to be in the desert.

Are darcsen's meant to be jews or something the empire doesn't seem to particularly hate them but everyone does.

I wish thay kept a tally of troop kills though. I wanna know who's killed the most.

Darcsen's could be interpreted as Jews, yes. The reason for the hatred towards them becomes clear later on, though to say more would ruin it.

You need to recruit Vyse and Alex, they're shocktroopers both fully capable of taking down enemy platoons on their own once levelled. And Vyse is from one of the best RPGs ever made. Scout wise, you need Aika (SOA again!), for lancers you need to go for Jann; yes, he's camp as a row of tents, but he's great for the later stages, and for snipers I'd recommend Oscar early-mid game and Marina later. Don't feel guilty about abusing the scouts either; their huge movement range can make maps that appear difficult at first an absolute doddle.

Also, you won't have access to them yet, but don't forget to check out the bonus missions later. They're all really nice little additions to the main story.

There's a shitload of gay, lesbian and bi troops in this game.

I'll work them in eventually, main reason i use who i'm using is they all seem to like each other which helps with co op attacks which wreck things. Currently this game has been laughably easy so i'm waiting for a wall to pop up at some point.

The story is done really well and Welkin and Faldio are very likable, its annoying Rosie gives CP because she's very unlikable (her awful singing and racist attitudes).
I like the fact Salinas and Freesia who are buddies both love themselves. There a decent team as they double boost when next to eac h other as they like women and men respectively.

Chapter seven isn't a wall, it's a mountain. It's not that it's hard per se, but... well, you'll see. First time around, it'll sting.

Heh, if you get Homer, look at his potentials. He likes pain. Yes, they even included a masochist.

Rosie isn't the best shocktrooper, but she does get much more likeable as the game develops, especially if you do her personal bouns mission. It really adds depth to her.

Can't say I used them much. Actually though, that's one of my favourite things about the game; I've beaten it three times now, and I always use the same team. Some of them aren't the best at their roles, but the characters are all very well written, and it makes you genuinely care about your squad.

I kinda get what you mean. The characters i like i actually play more carefully with. Almost trying to make them the better players in my squad. I guess most ppl playing this would do that though.

I;m hoping allicia becomes more interesting, she seems to be the main love interest, but i don't really see why welkin would like her at this point at all.

The flying pig made me laugh, that was seriously weird.

The way Welkins love of nature helps his tactics I find kinda cool. Most games just camp up a character for no reason and they're normally unlikable. Welkin's done really well though. I was suprised at how quickly i liked him.

You'll love Alicia by the end. She seems dull initially but she really comes into her own from the mid point. Video game romances are usually cliched and obvious, but the will they / won't they thing with Welkin and Alicia is very well done.

Rosie? She's one of the best characters in the damn game along with Alicia and Welkin.

i'll see later in terms of cutscenes all i've seen is her giving isara shit for having black hair and her bitching and moaning about darcsen's

Faldio and Maxi are the best characters in the game. Welkin and Alicia are too stupid and melodramatic.

Faldio is awesome. He seems like a slightly less awkward Welkin until...yep.
