March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

Forums / Xenogears / Xenogears Petition

pixel
I have a petition to remake Xenogears with all the changes that were cut short. Specifically, the Omnigears of Crescens and Sietzbehn, the change from Disc 2's linear/narration progression, more freedom in the 2nd Disc (characters actually going somewhere rather than have the game drop them into the locations). I've tried contacting Square-Enix, but that was a dead end.

I know this is an almost futile task. But Xenogears is a great game that deserves another shot. If nothing else, at least I tried, and sometimes that's really all you need.

The petition is here: www.petitionspot.com/petitions/Xenogears. Thank you in advance.

"Sietzbehn"?

You don't deserve to start a Xenogears petition, let alone have anyone waste their time signing it.
pixel
Okay then. You start a petition. And lay off the sugar, pal. It'll kill you.

horray for fanboys!

thank you yuna. Hooray for fanboys indeed. now if people will only start signing . . . well shit I'm sounding like an after-school special. Sign if you're interested. I'm gonna watch the events leading up to the creation of Xenogears (I have an entire memory card for all major plot points). Damn Id is cool.

As far as I can tell, square has pretty much no further interest in Xenogears. Besides, without Takahashi there they can't be entirely sure what was or was not meant to be in the game.
pixel
a guy can dream, can't he?
pixel
www.petitionspot.com eh?..... i am going to start a petition to get people to stop making petitions.
pixel
Fine. Consider this topic closed.

pixel
Closed? Oh, but we don't close threads here... They wander completely off topic and take on a life of their own...

And I have to agree with Gogar and whatnot... I don't think Sqare has any interest in the series, especially with Xenosaga being out and all (with mediocre sales at best, no?)...

I'm not the 'remake' type of person, I'm happy enough if they re-release the game, but wouldn't take any interest in them recreating the original...
pixel
I knew this was a long shot. I knew everything about Square's interests. I just wanted to do something. So I started the petition.

And as about the topics growing a life of their own . . . who would win in a fight: Id or Albedo?

since I never played xenogears... ALBEDO because I love him

Sorry, hate to burst your bubble but the opinions of the masses do not matter in this world.

And on a lighter note: LAWL 'Free Schapelle Corby from Bali' is number 10 on the most popular petitions. Like anyone cares about that drug-smuggling bitch anymore. Get over it fellas, SHE'S GUILTY.

Lay off the sugar? I'm not the one who made a Xenogears remake petition, you UNBELIEVABLY vapid buckfutter.
pixel
Has Square Enix even ever remade a game?
pixel
there's Final Fantasy Collection, FF Orgins, FF Anthology for the PS1, FF4, FF3, and ff6 for the DS.
staff
pixel
FF1 in FF Origins/Dawn of Souls and FF3 are the only true "remakes" All the others are ports, with some added features.
pixel
there may be some hope they make it on ps3 or sumthin but not likley.
staff

No, it's nearly impossible. Financially, Xenogears was a flop. Most, if not all of the dev. team has left to pursue other projects.
pixel
*Sigh* Dream a little dream. Episode III better have kick-ass mecha. That was the one thing that made Xenogears unique, and the first thing the Xenosaga team screwed up.
staff
pixel
You won't be disappointed with the mecha in epsiode 3 then...
pixel
"I don't think there's a problem you CAN'T solve with murder?" Where did you get that? It sounds like something Black Mage would say (From 8-Bit Theater).

Hey I know its a "duh" moment. Just thought to be as specific, that's all.

Man, if all the petitions for a new Chrono game havent gone anywhere, you can guess where your dream will take you.

Props for trying, but your energy will be much better spent doing something else :)

Ok. Back to the drawing board: Writing!
pixel
Writing?..like stories?
vip
pixel
wasn't someone here going to write a slash fiction of xavi/steve/rahul? or did I just imagine it?
staff

Remember that the 9 years that have passed since Xenogears was developed is basically an aeon in game industry terms. The game is distant history. It's like making a petition for a new 2d mario platformer.

Oh wait.
pixel
lol
pixel
Yep. I'm one of those writers who want to produce an epic, Tolkien-esque story about the battle between good and evil. You know, the usual.
