    Artbook Review

    Post by Neosmith on Tue May 14, 2013 8:50 am

    There's a Xenosaga Art Book review on Gamasutra: http://www.gamasutra.com/blogs/AlexanderEngel/20130425/191278/Book_Review_The_Art_of_Xenosaga.php

    Nothing major, but nice nonetheless.

    Oh man, my (now ex but still friends) girlfriend got me that in 2004! It may not be the best book ever, but it's got just about every character design the ODM for Ep I had and it's big bulky American printing size actually does most of the images (the ones that aren't pixelated) some serious justice.

    I find it strange how much the Japanese keep art books and game guides exclusive. We US fans could do with more of that.

    Maybe I should get myself that art book. Would you recommend it, Kat?

    Just wanted to add -- that's really nice. I would want someone to do that for me one day.

    It was one of the best presents I've ever gotten from someone. :3

    And I totally recommend it. Just...probably don't overspend on it. It's worth about 25ish bucks. I should probably just scan mine.

    A scan would be really nice Kat! I'd really like to see it, and I'm sure others here would too, so if you could scan it whenever you have the time that would be really nice.

    Sure! It's a thin book, so I'll dig it out of my bookshelf on a weekend I'm not being dragged into socializing. :3
