      well, i noticed by defending the village that the "teen-bot" that liked to lock itself up, was still alive and well behind his locked door, but sure, no survivors xD

        My shared failure? Hell no, I did everything perfectly, I even killed the first 2 savage machines without killing the machine they were eating, and I still ended up with everyone dead (scripted), I... WE have no part in their butchering, nice try yoko, nice try

          The Japanese version even mentions in the item description that they're "in good condition". How can Pascal sell the cores of the children (in good condition no less) if they destroyed them when committing suicide? Makes no sense...

            There's bunch of little machines wandering on top of buildings near ruined city where you meet Emil by the desert area. I wonder if you can "Use" the cores in any scenarios. For example going back in chapter select and trying to use it on the children bodies, or on the wandering machines. Or trying to "use" it on the headless body in the abandoned factory. -erlanggod

              Worth noting that the cores can be sold for 50K at Resistance Camp. Over double the value back on my current playthrough.

                The worst part is that Pascal calls his wares " useless junk". The body parts of his friends and family, and the "hearts" of the children he cared so much for..."junk". *Cries in a corner*
