    That's right.
    It's listed on IGN, Gamespot, and 1up as that date too.
    Where else did you look?

    I liked them both, as far as JRPGs go. Not nearly as good as Skies of Arcadia, but not so bad that I laugh at them like FF.

    I liked this thread better when it said Laystation 2.

    I want a Laystation 2. :(

    I was really excited for the first one, and I got it and loved it. I got the second one, and needed the money,so I had to return it and haven't been arsed to get it, because I've still got literally over a DOZEN RPGs that I have to finish.

    I can't wait for this game, especially since they're bringing back Kosy's original VA. Her voice in Ep: 2 was horrible.

    I am playing it now I am loving how the story is turning out but there is one story part that seems to be bugging me. Aside from that the rest is great

    How is the database handled? This is a pretty huge story, and I really liked that Episode 2 came with a special DVD that helped refresh all the plot points from the first. I was a little disappointed that they didn't do that again, but if the database is handled well, then that's just as good.

    It is okay. I would have preferred another FMV DVD from what I have seen of it. I honestly have not paid to much attention to the database. I am more interested right now in finishing the story. For me as the story goes along because I played Episodes 1 & 2 more then once everything comes back to me as the story progresses so the database is the least I want to look at right now.. But I definitely would have preferred another DVD

    So I got this game last weekend, and I am definately enjoying it. I like the fighting better than number 2. My only problem is that the revelations of the story seemed a little forced at times, but it's still not that bad. Other than that, I really like the story, even if it is ridiculously confusing at times with too many characters (thank God for the Database, because after almost every story break I go back to look up certain factions and people). I'm currently at Abel's Ark.

    I'm not going to lie to you, I played the first game for about 15 hours. 13 of which was spent watching Cutscenes.

    Draw your own conclusion.

    I read somewhere that the final CGI Sequence in Episode 3 is around 70 Minutes Long
    :wow:

    If that is true then damn

    It's not. :whatever: I'd estimate it being around 20-25 minutes long.

    not for an end scene...Yeah, episode 1 had too long of cutscenes which were fixed for the most part in 2 and 3. There are still a couple of long scenes, but they aren't that bad. I just wished that instead of having the scrolling dialogue boxes, they kept it all cinematic. The stopping and starting of dialogue boxes messes with the voice acting which would be quite good otherwise.

    I hate the boxes a bit...
    they make the voice acitng sound a bit...
    wooden, but it is not the...
    VA's fault...
    The only thing I hate from Xenosaga III is the Ep II Data Clear Reward...
    Shion's Vector suit... I expected a bit of EXP/SP reward
    but YAY ORIGINAL KOS*MOS!!!

    That's around the same amount of time that'd pass in any other game's opening/ending. The game actually tries to cut down on each scene's length.

    It gives you a couple of opportunities to save the game between "long" cutscene fests...

    Beat the game this weekend. Overall I really liked this game and thought it was a fine ending to the franchise. I just wish they were going with their original plan and making 7 games.

    The only thing that really bugged me was Shion. She just really pissed me off in this game. In most rpgs, when the main character is responsible for some really bad disaster or something, they are at least the stereotypical loner and quiet about it. But not Shion. She just wouldn't shut up about how she brought the Gnosis and how nobody can save her and nobody cares. i was kind of hoping that when you fight her, that I could kill her.

    It was only going to be six games.

    lol, how should she have acted? You have to remember that only a year ago she was working in a lab, and in general just being a bookworm. To have gone through all that she's seen is pretty disturbing to say the least. Besides, I'm a bit tired of all the "loner" men who sit aroundand angst after surviving a massacre.
