Hey, hope you're doing well! I haven't logged on in a very long while. Guess your last comment about Gintama is old news at this point, but I'm glad you enjoyed it! Hope your job is going well too.
I actually did read your year-end list for last year when you dropped it, and it was a great read. The only thing I'd disagree with is the omission of Link Click, it's a worthwhile watch for sure.

It's been a while since we last conversed! Thank you for reading my review though. Though, I do realize I could've written more given the things you just talked mentioned. I usually advocate for brain turn-off stuff but only to a certain degree too.

Thanks for the correction! Overall, there’s a lot to love about the Xenosaga games even beyond the ambitious storytelling. The OST in all 3 games is amazing. The special attacks are cool. The mech battles are fun. While the voice acting is a bit uneven between the 3 games, Crispin Freeman as Albedo is still the gold standard for over the top video game baddies. Love him!

Xenosaga 3 is easily the most expensive game in my collection as well. Fortunately, I bought it when it came out. The same can’t be said for Suikoden 2 which I spent 100 dollars on last year, then this year they announced an HD remake of the first 2 Suikoden games with better translations which will likely eviscerate the price of the original. Don’t you love it when that happens?

I'm happy someone else is playing those games! Xenosaga 2 is definitely the odd one out. It's not a bad game in my opinion, but like you said the sudden shift in artstyle was quite jarring and they also completely changed up the combat. Xenosaga 3 is definitely the best of the trilogy, finally finding its balance and doing a good job all around.

Tetsuya Takahashi wrote all 3 games with his wife, and you can tell he was and still is a huge anime dork. Xenogears especially has some inspiration from Armored Trooper Votoms, but also a number of obscure mecha anime. He also REALLY liked Evangelion and was convinced along with half of Japan that Jungian psychology and Gnostic Christianity was essential to understanding Eva. So, he read a lot of books on those topics and goes a bit overboard. There are portions where it works. He's a smart dude and he demonstrates that he does actually have a decent understanding of the basics of Nietzsche's philosophy, early Gnostic Christian principles, and Freudian/Jungian psychology. Then there are points it becomes a pretentious mess and he's just trying to prove how smart he is because I think he was 25 years old at the time. He's grown humbler in his middle aged and toned that shit WAAY down in the Xenoblade games.

Overall, it's kind of cult series but hands down are some of my favorite games of all time. Are you playing them via emulator or physical copies? I only ask because Xenosaga 3 got stupidly expensive over the last 10 years. Unfortunately, it didn't sell well over here and was printed in very low numbers.

Hey there. Just decided to come here after reading JedPressgrove's review for Celeste on Backloggd to tell you that I agree with what you said regarding it. I wanted to tell you that in the comment section for the guy's review, but he decided to disable the comments for it, so I decided to tell you that here.

Great choice on starting Aria! One heck of a journey lies ahead if you're willing to sit through it!

Hey there! I've seen you around Twitter every now and then, so I thought I'd say hi.

I want to tell you I followed you on Cartacajado (Letterboxd). I hope you follow me as well.
Ryuseishun Jul 23, 6:13 PM
Btw I have Letterboxd and I followed you. Would appreciate a follow back if possible.
Back to the Future seems quite fun, ngl.

Belated happy birthday!

You're welcome

Oh yes, I saw that anime premiere, did not really like, but poor fella, SEGA didn't win console war.

Welp, dodged a bullet I guess. Even if I hadn't dropped it, I bet I would have postponed the episodes until they started piling up, been happening for a while with anime I'm not that eager to watch.

HOLY FLIPPING COW

Happy birthday, I might be a bit late, but I made it. lol
