I have been playing Xenogears for eight months. In the penultimate episode of season one, we're conducting inadequate preparation, incompleting a map, beating up angels, falling through laser tunnels, flipping tedious dungeon switches, observing basement bass, fighting fighting orbs, sealing divine abilities, time travelling to 1999, intershifting dimensionality, breaking our Gears, destroying fate, and killing god. Yes, we have killed god.
