So I've been a Xenosaga fan since I saw a commercial for Episode 1 on my VCR recording of an episode of Inuyasha that aired too late for me to stay up and watch. Got Episode 2 and was profoundly disappointed.
Preordered Episode III was profoundly happy.
Somewhere in here I got Xaenogears and loved it.

And taht's the story of my JRPG loves. I basically do just replay all the games I experienced as a teenager. I play some newer ones on occasion but very rarely. I've played FFVII-X for so long now, usually with mods or hacks to change things up, but I still just stick with them as I'm a creature of habit.

That and modern FF and Xeno don't care about us turn-based fans. But hey, maybe someday.... Maybe someday Square will remember all their most popular and beloved games were basically turn-based.

This has been old man rants at clouds. I'm glad to meet you all.

Welcome to the board, Nikkolas, it's great to see another longtime fan. I bet that VCR ad was aesthetic af.

Please feel free to post and make yourself at home.

I definitely feel this way as well. I eventually got used to Xenoblade but turn-based is where my heart is. I want to see those more serious turn-based games make a comeback.

Ahoy, welcome aboard!

Pretty much same here. My brain doesn't work very well in 3D (or at all, these days ;P) so I mostly just stick to the games I grew up with, or newer stuff that falls into the same comfort zone. Xenosaga was a particularly formative life experience for me in high school and early college, and also probably one of the last console game series I really got into, so here I am.

Anyway, glad to meet you too!

Do you remember which one it was? That'd be fascinating to see.

Welcome! I feel like I've fallen woefully behind on trying to keep up with whatever's going on in gaming, so I feel you there. For me it's difficult to track all the motion going on on-screen with newer games, and it feels exhausting after a while.

Hello, I think I have also seen the XS1 advertisement, is it the part of the birth of the children?

Hello and welcome to the board! Like everyone else, I'm also interested in which commercial it was that you saw for Xenosaga 1.
