Also like how it's not immediately obvious which faction is the worse one. On one hand one's using humans as disposable troops, while on the other side the enemy seems almost inhuman, though it could just be a perfection of the tech the empire is aiming for.

I think there's references, but nothing tied to it since Xenogears is in licensing limbo. I don't think there's any blatant links like Xenosaga had, but I still need to play the games. I don't have any of the consoles so I need to emulate and I've been procrastinating about setting it up. I think I've seen images of something shaped like a Zohar in some Xenoblade image, but I'm not sure if I'm remembering right

Xenogears is my favourite JRPG of all time.

>>72660
Yes and no. The guys behind Xenogears went onto create Xenosaga and Xenoblade, but Square is really, really stingy with the Xenogears IP and won't let Monolith Soft officially do anything with Xenogears. Legally, Xenoblade cannot explicitly connect to Xenogears.

This hasn't stopped Takahashi from rehashing Xenogears though, Xenoblade 2 in particular is very much a rehash of Perfect Works (his original plan from the 1990s to make Xenogears into a trilogy), there's a ton of parallels between XB2 and XG.

Xenoblade 2 may or may not be canonically connected to Xenosaga though in some weird metaverse way (Bamco's lets Monolith Soft use the Xenosaga IP still, fortunately), and Xenosaga is supposed to be connected to Xenogears despite legal issues.

 No.74879

File:Xenosaga Zohar Xenoblade 2….jpg (104.21 KB,1981x719)

>>74878
Adding to this, so technically if Monolith doubles down on Xenoblade being connected with Xenosaga rather than just teasing the possibility, then Xenoblade is connected with Xenogears since Xenosaga is heavily implied to be connected to Xenogears.

I've been meaning to play the later games, but I've really enjoyed the first Armored Core so far (although the original controls are a little painful without rebinding them). Generally speaking, the critic reviews would seem to suggest that they're all fairly average games, but user reviews tend to be a lot more positive.

The first release of the series, Armored Core, was released in 1997, while its twenty-third and final game, Armored Core: Verdict Day was released in 2013. The series has been released on the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, and Mobile Phone
I feel intimidated already. Guess I'll just watch it for the lore if there's a nice playthrough .

Shame that FromSoft changed so hard from Mecha into RPG, but I guess people in Japan started feeling more like escaping to fantasy land and away from a gritty reality.

There's at least ==FIVE of them this season, so what do you think? Megaton-kyuu Musashi, Muv-Luv, Sakugan, Gyakuten Sekai no Denchi Shoujo, and Kyoukai Senki.
Muv-Luv is a VN adaptation obviously so no one should watch that unless they've read all of it which can be a tall order. I'll read it eventually...
Musashi is based on a video game and didn't spark any interest in me.
Sakugan looks like it's going to be filled with a whole lot of suffering, but could be great. I don't think I want to deal with one of those shows right now.
Denchi Shoujo has a VERY cute girl in it and seems decent enough at the moment. Very bizarre story and I'm curious to see how crazy things get.
Kyoukai Senki is another one of those 'honorable Japanese must expel conquering foreigners' things and doesn't interest me.

Megaton Musashi is on the super robot style of mecha, lots of technobabble and shouting out the HISSATSU WAZAs and such.

Potentially building a complex story with a lot of characters, but we'll see where it goes. Could end up completely flopping, you never know.

 No.79390

>>79388
I think the biggest problem with Musashi is that it's a mecha that had no mecha in the first episode. I might give it a try, but how do you do that?

 No.79391

>>79390
yeah, they've had some really weird directional choices so far. Like you said, no mecha action in the first episode, despite that (at least so far) being a pretty big focus of the show. And they keep doing previews that end up having very little to do with the next episode. Feels like they're flying by the seat of their pants sometimes.

 No.79397

>>79380
I think for what I'll be keeping up with Sakugan and Denchi Shoujo are what I'll be keeping up with. I'll probably save Muv-Luv for when it comes out on BD so that I can watch it all at once.

File:[SubsPlease] 86 - Eighty S….jpg (Spoiler Image,267.57 KB,1920x1080)

Also it's pretty crazy that in a single season there's potentially 5 above average mecha, and 3 that have really high potential. Wonder if it's starting to make a comback.

Also 86 s2 is airing if anyone's watching that, which I was somewhat excited for but now I'm not so sure after seeing that they copped out from having the main character die and be converted to the legion.
