I hope they're all still super-British. Nice change of pace from the same voice actors again and again, honestly.
  Aye! I second that. Some of the great memorable lines from the first game got a bit of help from that British accent, indeed.

IF that first "town" is Neo-LA, I want them to have American accents.... If there is a Neo-London, you're goddamn right they better sound British.
Is that a lot to ask?  Fuckit, I think it'd be fun....

But yeah I grew really attached to the British cast.

I hope there's like a split second right before a new day starts, right before 00:00 called RE:YN that makes you do a 99,999 damage hit because.

No I want the people from Neo-LA to all have British accents.

I want literally everything to make a british accent, I want the sword sounds to be the MOTHERFUCKING QUEEN going "SWOOSH!" and "CLANG!"

I doubt they will. Since I am assuming NoA will handle the English localization this time rather than letting NoE do it and then take it several months later.

I will say one thing, for all the xeno talk, this game bears no resemblance to xenosaga for me. I mean, I played xenogears and all 3 xenosagas, and this has a very different feel compared to them. I think that's a benefit though, given the bad rep xenosaga tends to get.

Did you watch the story trailer?

IIRC, besides the "Xeno" part of the name, certain staff members, and other "things" aside (like use of mechs), it isn't supposed to be similar to the old Xeno- titles (iirc, they really can't be since the "series" has had different publishers over the years; jumping from Square, Namco, and now Nintendo).

I think it's kinda like a Megaman > Mighty Number 9 scenario.  Very similar, but it's "not" because of who owns what.

By the way, check out the Zohar in the upper left:

I don't think we'll ever see this game push the limits of copyrights like Episode III did, but if it feels more "Xeno" than Xenoblade I'm all for it. I don't think I'm alone to say that Xenoblade's story was merely "OK" in comparison to Gears and Saga. If this game can improve on that... while keeping Xenoblade's amazing exploration and depth... I'd say we've got a winner.

I'm actually surprised the Zohar didn't show up anywhere in Xenoblade.

All I want from my Neo-LA is to be able to escape it with my 'Kurt Russel with an eyepatch'-ish looking avatar at some point.

You've misunderstood me. I just seek your death only because you're in the way of my goal of world conquest. I can't help it that I have evil ambitions and am named Dark Lord. Honest.

I think the Monado was inspired by it.

Well I would think they can probably reuse anything they want from Saga since that was developed by Monolith Studios (although I guess it depends heavily on several legal documents that I have 0 way of accessing or probably even reading) and Namco has sold their entire share in Monolith to Nintendo. The fact that they actually got away with what they did in Saga will always amaze me though. I mean Monolith was founded by the people who made Gears leaving Square to form their own company. You would think that Square would be a little litigious over them making so many freaking call backs/blatant ripping of asset designs. Oh well, time to look to the future. A future that apparently has Zohars, at least in computer files!

I'm actually surprised the Zohar didn't show up anywhere in Xenoblade.

I think the Monado was inspired by it.
I don't see it. One is representation of Jesus that allows humans to interface with 5th dimensional beings and also creates lovecraftian horrors. The other is a representation of a person's will to defy fate (or something like that, I forgot the dialogue from the ending). Other than being McGuffins, I don't see much similarity between them. I am however now wondering if X is going to see a return of naming stuff after stuff from Gnosticism.

I did some googling and got this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monad_%28Gnosticism%29

"This Monad is the spiritual source of everything which emanates the pleroma, and could be contrasted to the darkness of pure matter."

But in any case I meant they looked more visually similar to me in the sense that they're all these big chunky things with a round bit towards the top and a bunch of lines on it.

Disregard previous comments, I'm a dumb.
