Yes, I asked you to come here.
Anyway. first off, the soundtrack is not fanservice, they deliberately added the drama tracks to expand on what they had in game. Phantom WAS originally just a bonus with no story relevance. the Drama tracks expanded upon that, and made him story relevant.
also, how can you say their personalities dont match? Model X reacts to Vent and Ailes bravery in protecting Prairie even thouh they didnt even know her. That is definitely an X trait.
Model Z is distant, and self sacrificial, as well as cold logical (so to speak)
Model P is all mysterious phrases and clever dialogue. "in the end he drowned in his own power... What a fitting end for one who desired it so badly..."
and so on.
plus they do have memories, they directly reference the battle against Weil 200 years ago. Model H references it when you defeat Hivolt.
also, prairie mentions the "consciousness of legendary heroes" "Souls" in the japanese version.
ad complete wors is not fanservice, it is a compilation of the artwork accumulated from the game. most of it is used ingame, and some of it is from the game's development. it has interviews with Inticreates themselves.
and it was area F (I think) it was the fozen lake, not a underground cave.
once again, X did not go away in Z2, he is in Z3. he is an integral part of the story in Z3, protecting resistance base when Weil uses Omega with the Dark Elf to brainwash all the reploids on earth. X appears when resistance soldiers attack Zero and Ciel, and disables Weils control, setting up a protection around the base. He gives the the coordinates fof Weil's base at the end, as well. He is also present when you defeat Copy X, noting that Copy X was used by Weil. He also tells Ciel the truth about Zero and Omega. (the fact that Omega is in possession of Zero's body, and Zero's current body is a copy of his original one. )
in Z4, Zero died. thats it. he died. but his Soul/cyber elf, ended up in Cyberspace, along with X and Phantom, and then later, the retconned 3 remaining guardians as well.
Ciel devoted herself to finding Zero, and studied Weils area of expertise, which is reploid resurrection when Model W was found and she sealed the core, she made X, Z, H,L,F, and P. using Weil's techniques of ressurection, she extrcted their souls from Cyberspace, and revived them as Biometals. what she did do, and you are right about this, is she created them using the data she had gained from studying the Model W fragment, which is, the R.O.C.K. system. (MEGA system in the localized version) she used the biometal technology gleamed from W, to create the Biometal "bodies". but they do have their original souls in them.Posted on: October 10, 2009, 09:47:38 PM
Also, Ciel did not create Model W. This man did.
