Xenosaga 1 Just Owned Me, Hard.

Apparently, the nearest Sam Goody is also going out of business. While there wasn't much left when I visited, I did pick up a copy of Xenosaga for a mere fourteen bucks. I never finished the original Xenogears and so have been wary of playing the prequels ever since their release, but for such a cheap price, why not give it a shot? It was either that or torturing myself by playing FFX-2 for the 4th time, doing nothing but mastering the ugliest of the dress spheres.

I'm not even a full two hours into the game. Shit has happened plotwise, of course, but this is the spoiler-free version of the post. I just got completely wiped out by a Gnosis thingiemabobber. This wouldn't be so bad, except it was a game-over sort of ownage, and I didn't get a chance to save after the long cinema scene. I'm somewhat irritated that I died. I did get caught by the monster, which I wasn't supposed to do, but I had two aces up my sleeve - or so I thought. Shion learned the "Good-bye" skill, and I had also recently purchased an Escape pack! But could I use either? Noooooooo.

My little level 4 Shion has 160 HP. That big fat Gnosis thingie hit her for 9999 damage. You do the math!

I'm also amazed by how short Shion's skirt is. That's an official uniform!?
