    Certainly. But I see a lot of people conflate cheating with non-monogamous relationships and I feel the distinction is important, especially as polyamorous relationships become more common and more talked about. People can be in a non-monogamous relationship and still cheat just as cheating isn't a non-monogamous relationship structure.

    Ultimately cheating is cheating in any relationship paradigm as it's really just violating relationship boundaries set between the parties involved.

    Cheating isn't the same thing as non-monogamy.

    Monogany does exist in animals actually, so I wouldn't listen to this person trying to tell you otherwise. It actually has more advantages for species survival than polygamy.

    I'd say both sexes tend to hold grudges in terms of infidelity. I'd say the bias comes more from gender bias' that say men are always more likely to cheat than woman are, even though I believe the actual evidence dictates that it's closer to 50-50 than our society would care to admit to.

    Well, I'm glad you've been doing a good job making it through the classics. Hopefully, you'll be able to find times to check out VIII and IX.

    Yeah, I can agree. I remember reading her blog when all of the Episode 2 shenanigans went down and feeling really bad for her. Not helped that she kind of got out of the industry shortly after. She's only worked on a few things since Episode 2, which is a crying shame cause between her and Takahashi, she's honestly the better writer. Helped by the fact that the U.R.T.V. and Ziggy and MOMO scenarios were all her doing in Xenosaga and are honestly the best parts of the series.

    Reading through the document about the development of Xenogears and Xenosaga, I can’t help but feel really sorry for Soraya Saga in all this. Takahashi has moved on and is doing wonderfully with his Xenoblade series, but you can tell from her blog posts how utterly devastating the way the project got mangled was for her. I know she’s moved on to other projects as well, but I don’t think she’s contributed to a game’s scenario to such an extent since. I feel like this was her magnum opus that got taken away from her.

    You'll have to tell me your thoughts on the trilogy after you finish them. Honestly, I'm curious to just know how you felt about the first game.
