And I honestly cannot decide whether or not I am satisfied
On one side, it was a completely spectacular game. One of the best stories I have ever seen in an RPG. I loved every last one of the characters. Well, except Shion, who I only liked
I would probably love her too if she wasn't so incredibly stupid.
The music. All through the game, I was mildly impressed by the music. It's by Yasunori MItsuda, impossible to NOT be impressed. But they hardly had any of it... but that last boss battle music more then made up for all the other deficiencies. Extremely good. I am listening to an MP3 of it now, as a matter of fact. A couple unusually good vocal tracks thrown in here and there too.
An emotional ending too, very much so.
Ah, a truly good game. Right up there with Chrono Trigger and FF6, although not quite as good as either of them.
I should be satisfied, heh.
But, on the other hand... there was that little "To Be Continued" screen, and all the other bits of unresolved story showing up throughout the credits. It makes me hungry for MORE.
SOO many unanswered questions, I do not believe there was a single wholly resolved subplot in the entire game...
Not that it matters. It was enough all by itself to make one of the better games I've played.
Sooo.... I have Xenogears coming sometime soon. Got it for 20$ brand new off of SquareEnix's official site store. It seems that little matter of the PS1 classics being rereleased as GReatest Hits finally went into effect
Anyways, back to what I was saying... how closely are Xenosaga and Xenogears connected? Will me playing Xenogears answer any of my questions, or supplement any information? Or is they extremely unrelated?
Which brings to mind another question... Episode 2. I thought it was a sequel, and most of the footage and stuff I have read confirms this. But I have also heard things about it having somehting to do with the Miltian conflict form 14 year prior to this. And then of course there is a swordfight between Margulis and that other guy which seems to show how he got that hideous scar. That certainly didn't happen after Episode 2.
Or perhaps I am getting Episode 2 and that bonus Xenofreaks disc mixed up.
