(I will say one thing about Xeno though, it made me want to get back to work on 2.)
Goddamn, yes! I think that's the one main link in the chain we're missing.
MM3 might also be interesting: it looked good but I'm not sure how much of its content is original and how much derivative, like we so often see in the myriad offshoots. I think there's a translation project going on, but I can't tell whether it's progressing.
It's a shame only the crappier Metal games have gotten official Western releases, there's a lot of great stuff in the series.
Hey, Metal Saga was pretty damn good, a proper open-world Metal Max making good use of its platform's capabilities (PS2).
Beyond I think MM3, the series itself has been decaying in general, from my perspective, with increasingly shallow/exploitative iterations. I can't really play Xeno since I don't have a PS4, but from what I've seen, aside from tank customization perhaps, it looks like quite a watered down version of what I at least consider the Metal Max spirit.
