of the Week
Need to kill some time?
I discovered that you can easily get almost all of your lvl 6
Deathblows in the sewers of Kislev. Just keep on the first lvl
of the sewers, near the exit just in case you get hurt, and start
fighting these REAL easy guys. After you built up your Deathblows
to as high as you want, just exit out and go on with the story,
I kept this up and ended up completing Grahf on the Goliath in
six turns! Is this impossible? Let's just say that it isn't for
me, but might be for you. Do this if you're REALLY bored with
life, cause it took me about two hours.
Hyuga: Thanks for the tips.
If I ever seriously need to kill some time, maybe I'll go there.
But geez? Completing Grahf on 6 turns isn't something to be proud
of! That battle only finishes if your characters (`cept for Elly)
die in battle. Level has nothing to do with it, Grahf's just
gonna mop the floor with you anyway, so what is there to be proud
of? Huh? Even if you did really beat him up, the story just goes
on like as if you were beaten...
The Truth is Out There
really think that your Xenogears web site is the best out there.
My question is: Can Ramsus be a playable character? If not then
are there any other hidden characters?
Hyuga: Thanks, I think it
is too. Ramsus unfortunately is not a playable one. Rats! If
you've seen my profile, you'll know that he's my second favorite
character. But, alas, Kahran (ewww. Awful name!) Ramsus cannot
join your troops. I have some serious proof to why he can't join.
Also, only Emerelda can be considered a hidden character, with
her adult form. See previous mailbags for more info.
I put up a news report on why Ramsus or any other character can't
be played. Just take a look at it some time. =D
Great Minds Think Alike
up with this? I remember the days when all the Xenogears pages
had somebody named Citan, but ever since I made this screen name
every Citan is now known as Hyuga! What's up with that?
Hyuga: Actually, I have a
real reason to why I use Hyuga. I used to be called Citan, until
that name got out of hand. I noticed that Citan gets his sword
after his true name was revealed. So, I decided to use Hyuga.
It has a better ring to it than Citan. Hyuga also sounds more
mysterious. I like it, you like it, so let's just admit it's
too catchy not to be used by tons of folks. =D
Give it a few more years and "Hyuga"
might appear as a cereal's brand name
Modding for NTSC
wonder if you could tell me when/if there are going to be an
European (PAL-version) release of Xenogears. I'm really desperate
to find it out, so please help. and finally, thank you for a
VERY good web-site.
Hyuga: From what I know,
a PAL version of Xenogears isn't planned. Square doesn't seem
to like you guys do they? (LOL, no offense meant, just kidding)
But, if you people still want to enjoy Xenogears, there's hope!
Expensive as it is, importing is a way to play games from around
the world. I don't know much about all that, so I asked The Contact.
J-Cool, lucky for you and me, he gave me the answers for what
I was looking for this time *cough again*. Here's a three-step
process for playing an import Xenogears (NTSC) on a PAL PlayStation:
1. Modify your PlayStation. You need this to play the games.
I think Pro Action Replays do the job well, too.
2. Get a PAL-to-NTSC converter. This will allow your PAL system
to run an NTSC game.
3. Import Xenogears. Now you can enjoy the game that we all love.
Elly's dubious Mom, the twins, and ugh, the Manhole again
could Elly's mother even have doubted the fact that Elly wasn't
her daughter if she didn't even gave birth to her .... ?!? As
for my question(s); -How come the boss Calamity looks so much
(almost identical) like Seibzehn??? I've finished the game but
now I want to make Emerelda grow up, I've looked everywere for
a manhole but I can't find it anywere, I wondered if you could
put a picture of the manhole on your (by the way the best Xenogears-
site), that would make it a lot easier to find (I do have Emeralda
in my group by the way). Also, I'm running out of G-Godfather
ammo, were can I buy more ?!
Hyuga: Just because you didn't
give birth to a child doesn't mean that you can't love them and
treat them like your own. Adoption is like that. But maybe she
was doubting if she really filed in the right legal papers? Heh,
seriously, I think it's a flaw in the story, unless it went that
Elly's surrogate mother gave birth to a child who died, and Elly
was the replacement, making the mother think Elly was the very
one who was just born. Sounds like a plot for a soap opera, I
Argh! You just HAD to mention Calamity didn't you. I happen to
hate Calamity quite a bit. Why? Because you readers love asking
about him. Grr. Calamity was the prototype for Seibzehn. Made
by the same guy. Nikolai Balthasar. That's why.
Emmy? Check out Nutz's last mailbag. It had a description and
a pic. But for your sake, here's the pic again:
Again, for the nth time, the yellow arrow's pointing
at the manhole lid
The ammo can
be bought at Big Joe's shop in the lighthouse. It's in one of
