What was the biggest mistake in handling announcing how we could get Xenosaga HD?

In my opinion the fault is of specialized sites.

I have not seen the petition reported on any site, if not on a site that I frequent often, and just because I have reported several times to it. And in any case they reported it as a secondary news, so only a minority of people (who for the most part had already signed and wanted to inform on the trend of the petition) gave it a look.

Sorry for my english, but I do not write often in this language :P

Because xenosaga was a horrible, horrible, horrible series of games that deserve nothing but the sweet embrace of fire, but I would pity the napalm being wasted on erasing such a worthless abomination from this world.


I'm curious, have you played the entire series?


Bought the trilogy all at once as xenogears had always been a favorite, what could go wrong, aside from absolutely everything?  Slogged my way through the first, cutscene after skull-fucking-boring cutscene, tried to convince myself the second couldn't be any worse, and it wasn't, but it didn't give me even the tiniest glimmer of hope for the third so I stopped, because I'm not a masochist. 


HA! The third was the good one. :P

Look at the sales. The first game sold well, but the second game killed the series. Literally. After the second game flopped critically(and possibly commercially), Namco gave them one last game to make, and then pulled the plug on the series. 

 

I feel as though what xenosaga was lacking, were the moments that drew people in. There were no moments that put you at the edge of your seat. The third game had a few of those(and boy were they good), but the other games lacked them. 

I feel as though it just didn't do well enough to draw people in. The games had an awesome story, but the problem was, in order to get to the bulk of the story, you had to go through the first two games. 

 

Had some really good trailers though.

The first game did well however the series couldn't keep a consistent quality but the third game isn't as good as you think it is since it wasn't able to recover the damage that the second game had done ... 

Nonetheless, I'll get to it once I'm finished with Dragon Age: Inquisition and .hack to fully critique it ...

The first one was alright, the second one was meh. But the third one was the best one. Possibly what made the series worth it. If I were you though, I would just get a summary of the second game, or watch all the cutscenes.

Same goes for you on the second game. It happens a lot of times, when one entry in the series is bad, it makes people lose faith.

Trust me when I say it doesn't make up for all of the sins of its past and has flaws of its own, but it does help bring the SERIES to a higher state of acceptability.

If a game were truly high quality then it would bring back those customers, not drive it away further like the third game continued to ...

Like I said, I'm going to play it eventually to give a full judgement ...

How can you be certain that it drove people away further? How do you know they weren't just turned off by the second game and didn't bother trying the third?

Because there's a clear decline in sales! 

Not only that but the series had established it's own base with the first game been solid so the third game could have easily outlegged the second one had it got good word of mouth but now we know this isn't the case 8 years later ...

With all due respect, the both of you can go fuck yourselves, I'd rather go contract ebola than subject myself to shitfest that is xenosaga.
