    Xenogears - Ps1 Classic?

    Post by jave-lin on Tue Feb 22, 2011 7:23 am

    I keep on hearing about how great and how awesome
    Xenogears, the Ps1 classic that is out on PSN today, is.

    I never owned a Ps1 or even played the RPG game.

    Can anybody tell me what's so special about it,
    and why it's so great?

    It's out right now in the US PSN Store for $9.99....

    The combat system is around 2 million times better than the typical turn-based RPG. It's a lot like Legend Of Legaia's combat. The story is pretty decent (some might even say a little pretentious, haha) but it's good for an RPG. It's easily worth $10 if you're into JRPGs.

    Naay makalagot nga part sa disc 2... WALL OF TEXT. Pabasahon gyud ka ug nobela ba, makasuya kaayo. pero oks ra man kay lingaw. Wala pa pud nako nahuman, naa ra ko sa isa ka boss nga wala na nako baliki kay nakalimtan na nako.

    One of the best rpg's that I've played. I wonder, why they didn't make a remake. It has a very solid story and really complicated. There's a puzzle in the game that's really hard. I even called my 2 friends who is in college at that time, I was in highschool. The engineering student was the one who solved it since the puzzle was all about math. My other friend who took up a business course had a difficult time also hehehe. The best part I like is the combat system. The combos and finishing moves were sick.

    Yeah, theres a xenosaga in ps2.. I'm not sure. I guess, xenosaga is a prequel of xenogears. Xenosaga, was not that good. It has its ups and downs but still managed to finish the game. Tried playing xenosaga 2 and it was good but all copies at that time were not properly made. the game hangs 1/4 of disc 1

    Hmm...I see.

    So Xenogears IS a Great RPG game....great combat system, ya don't say?
    I'll check this out either in hardcopy (disc)
    or just get it off PSN for $9.99.

    I much prefer "old school" games compared
    to the current gen ones, there's something about
    old school games that have that undeniable charm
    and mystique/magic that the current gen games lack....
    even though the graphics aren't there,
    the gameplay and story is.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    tama jud jav, siguro mindset nlng na, if an old game is good, we praise it because its good despite the limitation of the hardware, pero pag current gen, we are always expecting something more..

    look at the old games:
    chrono trigger- sooo much content, multiple endings.
    ff7- really? world map was freaking huge.
    RE123- only a few stages but they maximized the stages/areas..
    ff12- was freakin epic
    legend of zelda: link to the past- pure goodness

    then look at the new games:
    ff13, nano dli man jud nila to ma open world??
    ME2 nano gmay ra man ang area per planet?
    UC2 no character progression?
    Medal of Honor- 9 stages? really?

    what are they doing with all that extra disk space?!?!

    end of rant..

    Xenogears > Vagrant Story.

    I'm playing Xenogears now. Just got it off PSN today. The thing that got me hooked to xenogears before is the story. Yeah, there will be a lot of reading but nevertheless, this is one of squaresoft's best stories to date. I did have one complaint then and I still find it irritating now...camera sucks! lol.

    Oh, and gear battles are awesome hard!

    @jon: until part 3 ang xenosaga. heheh. and it's not a prequel. more like a spiritual successor since they both had the same writer/producer.

    Anybody interested in Xenogears story should definitely read the book Xenogears Perfect Works.

    buy it, honor it, praise it, pray to it.

    It is that good... t'is one of the games that was an instant classic when squenix was still Squaresoft.

    Gwapo ang Xenosaga, sa mga wala pa nakadula...
    Xenosaga 1; gwapo..ok siya
    Xenosage 2; meh.. skip it...
    Xenosaga 3; it's very tempting to buy >_> so just buy it (or pirate it)
