You have to understand I'm taking my time to phrase this because you're a nice guy and I know you lov this gamee and I don't want to offend you.
It feels ... overwrought.
Is that so? Well, like I've said before, the writing is only like that some of the times (though I actually really love it). Also, like I've said before once again, you'll have to play the game up to that point to actually get a feel and understand why they wrote it like that. Xenogears is not you typical rpg Khuutra. It's on a whole other level of deepness. Writing like that can be considered "overwrought" for your average game, but not for Xenogears (at least, in my opinion).
