We bring you more villains! In this episode of XenoChat, join Justin, Tyler, Kat, Brielle, and Marie as they discuss the big (and small, slightly forgettable) baddies of the classic Xenogears! This episode was originally recorded on June 13th, 2021. We experienced technical difficulties, which Justin discusses at the beginning of this episode. We recorded both the Xenogears and Xenosaga episodes in on sitting, but we cut the episode in half. Otherwise, it would have been a 4 hour long episode. Jessi and Chris, who are introduced at the beginning of the Xenogears episode, will be featured more prominently in the Xenosaga episode. As always, this episode contains spoilers. Opening: Emotions by Yasunori Mitsuda (Xenogears) Ending: Grahf, Emperor of Darkness by Yasunori Mitsuda (Xenogears) Audio clips from Xenogears and Xenosaga Episode III.
