A Study of the Innate Difficulties of Serialised Documentation of Non-linear…
 If anyone else is thinking of attempting to serial blog an RPG, my advice is to, well, not.Okay, I figured I would give some insight into the processes I used in the attempted blogging over Xenosaga Episode III. By the end, I wouldn’t be surprised if I’d put off anyone planning on doing

Xenosaga Episode III - The End, part 2 (Final)
 Its the final post, folks!Following the path into the next area, we see a huge object like Wilhelms compass, with two ES units floating either side - one is Wilhelms, the other a previously unseen one with Abel floating inside it. Wilhelm informs us that this is the Zarathustra system, and promptly

Xenosaga Episode III - The End, part 1
 The start of the ending. Major spoilers ahead!Investigating the Cathedral, we discover an Ormus laboratory hidden beneath. Also below waiting for us is Margulis. Aside from the curious revelation that Jin and Pelegri were once lovers, Margulis says he is here to settle things once and for all.

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 9
 The good news is, as of about 15minutes ago, I finished watching the ending credits.The bad news is that I really have no idea about where to start summarising it.In any case, I'm not starting on it tonight - theres so much to cover (and a final boss to beat again) that I'm probably going

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 8
 You can tell I’m nearing the end of the game, as they’ve started killing off major characters. As always, proceed at ones own risk!As battle continues to rage over Mictam, Margulis consults Ormus boss Heinlein for orders. Heinlein seems rather less interested than usual though, and

The Maths of Tsundere (or: a lousy excuse for a graph post)
 Tsundere annoys me. It didn’t use to annoy me, but it does now. Its been a far, far too overused character model recently. It just seems like lazy and uncreative writing to me - it seems like an easy way of having something approaching character development without actually putting any thought...

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 7
 Finally, back to making some progress! Sorry for the complete lack of images in this evenings post - all the good stuff is on the other side of a pair of really nasty boss battles, and I didn’t want to do that all over againThe party heads towards Abels Ark in order to put a

Palm Characters Rin and Archer
 Yeah, more Fate/Stay Night figures. These are a little disappointing, actually, by the usual standards of the Palm figures series. The moulding around the hands is a bit messy, and the paint work isn’t particularly clean either. The Rin figure is completely set in pose - no movable arms like

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 6
 Unfortunately, at this point, I’d have to summarise the story since my last post as follows - “Realising their current capabilities as being woefully inadequate, Shion sets off on an epic training exercise".Alas, I've been blindsided by a sudden (and significant) increase in

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 5, part 2
 Some big, fairly unexpected events this time. I can’t imagine there being much more of the game left, but unfortunately I’m not going to have as much time to play during the week, so expect the next few days posts not to cover as much story.Arriving at Mictam, we see a fierce battle in

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 5
 Good lord, this is getting hard to follow. Don’t take anything I say as being massively accurate, since I’m referring back to a dictionary every thirty seconds here (and my japanese sucks anyway). I’m pretty sure this is almost entirely correct, but the game is throwing an

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 4, part 2
 You know the drill. There were some annoying gaps between save points here again, so once again there aren’t as many images as I’d like.Shion is being questioned by Margulis, Kevin and her father, and she kind of puts her foot in it by revealing she knows more than she possibly should -

 She’s back!Sorry about the lack of screenshots here - the save points weren’t in places conductive to going back for pictures, with a few long, gruelling boss battles in between points.Anyway, having returned to the Elsa with the data for producing KOS-MOS black box components, Hakase

 In which the game throws lots of dialogue I didn’t quite get at me, and nothing massively exciting happens.Shion decides to go into the city to investigate, and heads off in the direction of Labyrinthos. On the outskirts of the city, she and Allen come across the wreckage of a UTIC vehicle,

Xenosaga Episode III - Day 3
 Those who were hoping to some kind of quick resolution to the events I talked about last time are out of luckI left this out last time for dramatic purposes, but as T-elos is about to crush KOS-MOS, Shion seems to see her as a familiar figure, and her necklace starts to glow. The field
