    I was all over Exosquad back in the day, I mean as a 9 year old kid, I got a great first view of all the great subjects of slavery, alcoholism, sexism, xenophobia and loss. It was great. Beside that, those machines they got to put on and travel through space and fight people were pretty cool too.
