    Xenogears

    I started playing Xenogears the other night and I'm liking it so far. Anyone else here played the game or thinking about it? At the moment, I'm in the desert town of Dazin looking for gear parts so Fei can move Weltall.

    The game is very awesome, but I haven't played it in a very long time.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”

    This is only my favorite game of all time.

    A good RPG. But not without its flaws. Some spotty writing (though with grand ideas, no doubt), and translations.

    Extremely bad platforming segments that simply don't belong in the game with its terribly unaccommodating camera system.

    In the end its f fundamentally sound RPG in battle mechanics with memorable characters, excellent music, and overall a huge story.

    Some of the dungeons don't actually have music, like the stalactite cave Fei and Bart fell into that I will be glad to exit once we defeat the boss. Admittedly, I'm not liking the gear battles as much as the regular random battles but it'll probably get better.

    Actually, they aren't so bad. Before setting out to rescue Margie, there were a couple more enjoyable gear battles.

    It's kind of crazy to think this was once a concept for Final Fantasy VII.

    Can't remember how far you are in, but the gear battles will get a lot better. Rico and Billy are my favorite.

    Oh and of coarse ID is THE man.

    The one I didn't like was Calamity but later, inside Bart's Lair, you fight a couple knight gears and Schpariel. This is when Citan also climbs into a gear. About 7 hours in.

    I bought this game last year but haven't got around to playing it yet. It is on my list of games to play however.

    Would be interested to know your thoughts on the game so far Black, that is if you're still playing through/finished it.

    I haven't played it in a while. I think I'm 10 hours in so still a little early in the story. I dunno if I'll continue it because Pokémon X has a hold on me right now. I guess I like parts of Xenogears but not the whole thing so that's a problem for me.
