Phoenix Down 12.3 – Xenogears

Phoenix Down is hosted by Drew Leachman and Matt Quinn. Each segment focuses on an older game the duo decides upon with another member of the ZTGD crew or special guest. They play through and discuss the mechanics and how well it holds up today. It is the ultimate in backlog elimination.

The latest series has the guys digging into one of the most popular JRPGs of the PSOne era.

XENOGEARS!!! Definitely, one of the best JRPGs EVER, if not THE best! It was my RPG and man I still remember how my mind was blown when

it was revealed that Fei was Id!!

I long for that feeling again and feel like I would give anything to experience that joy once more.

I would kill for a true sequel to this game. One of the few JRPGs that I actually beat as a kid.

Maybe if I cross my eyes long enough, the 2 in the headline would move behind Xenogears then it would look like a sequel was coming right....RIGHT!?

When my parents got me a PS1 for Christmas one year, this was the first game I got with it... along with Crash Bandicoot 2. I had never played an RPG so I basically grinded to level 16 in the first area thinking that I was far into the game because I was at level 16. Little did I know how an RPG really worked. Eventually I finished the game after a few years with it. I LOVED it with a passion.

the only thing that kills this game is the second disc which has immense amounts of text. Like you hardly even play, all you do is read and read and read and then some battles a boss fight and the end. This game would have been a masterpiece if fully finished but Square took more than half the team to help on the development of FF8.
