Both Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria and Rogue Galaxy are out, which was a pleasant surprise, for certain! So if you've got some pennies, go and buy one (or both!) and help to send the message that us Brits aren't averse to a bit of RPG goodness!

By the way, HMV have got VP on sale for under £25! Bargain! :D

I got VP2 for £17.99 from play.com. I'll probably wait until the price drops or get Rogue Galaxy second hand, it sounds a bit too cliched for my liking.

Nice how you only adressed the people from the UK. You're absolutely correct though, Square Enix screwed up the distribution and it's next to impossible to find a PAL copy of either Valkyrie Profile game in any mainland country.

I kinda realised from the fact that my VP manual didn't have a quick-start section in any other language that it hadn't been distributed in any other territories around Europe... Sorry, Toms!

Probably due to the voice acting and large amount of text that neither SE or SCEE could be bothered to translate. Looks like non-English speaking Europe is now the "fourth world" in terms of gaming, just after the UK... :(

Both games have an Australian release too. Iíll probably buy Valkyrie Profile it at some point, but I already have a huge bunch of games I need to complete. Rogue Galaxy looks mediocre, and most of the opinions Iíve read on the game say the same thing.

Im in North America...and I just started playing VP2.  
One of my favourite thigns about it, is I can't think of anything wrong with the battle system. <3

One thing it does suffer, as with all Tri-Ace games...mages become obsolete... fast.

Except for the original Valkyrie Profile. In the first game mages were often the best damage-dealers, because magic couldn't be blocked. And of course, Celestial Star was a great PWS. But in practically every other game mages were weak, because they were too slow and used to much MP, using warriors or perhaps a hybrid characters was much more efficient. Not that I would want to use a character like Sophia...

what makes mages obsolete in VP2 unlike VP1 is that anyone can attack from the back row. another problem with mages is thier ultimate magic sucks. the main good one is the one that summons a leviathan since it can go third in a soul crush chain.
