So I've been playing with the Dolphin emulation lately (I dunno the forum rules on emulation talk but for what it's worth I own a Wii and a copy of Xenoblade) and in the process of looking for optimization tweaks to get the game running smooth I stumbled into a forum thread that revealed a few rather huge plot points for me. A) I now know Fiora is alive (big deal because I found her death to be quite moving), B) I know she has a mechon body (so I now know she's alive, and how she's alive), C) I know people can be turned into mechon (that seems pretty huge), and D) I know Metalface is Mumkhar (meh, I actually had a sneaking suspicion, still would have preferred to not know). That's a whole lot of spoilerage for a game I had really fallen in love with and found myself invested in the story of. I was only at the Bionis' knee when I read this stuff too. I'm rather angry about this and haven't been able to boot up the game since because I just keep thinking how annoyed I'm going to be when I reach those plot points.
So in an effort to chill out I figure I'll ask: How big a deal is this? I feel like I've had this game's "Aeris dies" moment ruined for me. Obviously I hadn't even scratched the surface of the plot but it's clear there's a pretty fantastic epic awaiting me. Have I spoiled the games best twists or are there a lot better "Holy hell WTF! YES" moments in store for me?
I've got the game shelved for now but I'm obviously going to go back to it just because it is fantastic. I just want to know I have a lot more great plot points to look forward to and haven't ruined the best of what the game was gonna throw at me.
Oh, and like I said I was only at the Bionis's knee so please don't outright mention any other plot points. The last event that occurred was fighting the second metal face you meet right before he kidnaps Juju.
Always remember: The pessimist is never disappointed.
