Introduction

No spoilers at all, not even in tags.

Let's Play the Xenosaga Series!



What the hell is a Xenosaga?

Xenosaga is a sci-fi JRPG, developed by Monolith Soft, and published by Namco. This is a three game series, all games being released on the PlayStation 2. It's well known for its lengthy cutscenes and non-standard gameplay, for better or worse.

Why a VLP?

I enjoy this series, though its one of those ones that I think lends itself very well to being made fun of while you watch it, so this will be less on the informative side. After the tutorial dungeon, I will be removing all repetitive encounters in order to streamline things a bit and not have thirty minute updates of only random battles.

What if I want an informational LP?

Zutaten did a well done hybrid LP of the series (most of it anyway). You can find it on the LP Master List, but it requires archives.

I love sidequests! Are you going to be doing any?

I'm going to be as comprehensive as possible when it comes to getting 100% completion.

Who are these people with you?

I will have a few mainstays rotating as guests, and another random rotating guest as well. My mainstays are DazzlingAddar, KasaiAisu, and Unpronounceable.

How about an upload schedule?

I'm aiming for about once or twice a week. No promises though.
