Pie and I also just recently passed Earthbound together. She had missed the game completely so it was a lot of fun getting to share that with her. I can't even imagine trying to get the rare drop weapons, you are a better man than I lol.

I won't say too much now since we are having a Saturday play date today, but thanks for joining make yourself at home ^_^

Thank you much! I wouldn't be so hasty on marking me the better man at Earthbound - I haven't succeeded yet! I've gone through a few sessions now and STILL don't have that sword. I'm powerful enough to taken down the enemies without a fight, but I don't know how long this'll take...it may end up defeating my patience.

Anyway, thank you for the invite in further posts, however I'm so oldschool that I haven't actually looked into Steam or...*cough* well I barely even know what it is. Haven't even wikied it yet. I've heard a lot about it though, and it certainly sounds like something I should be getting in to at one point.

I've said this multiple other times but I have the original SNES, Super Famicon, PS remake, DS remake (best one) and even have it on iPhone just cause. I've played through it all the way and part ways more than I can count and every year I usually play it at some point.

Since it relates to my obsession, CT Battle theme cover!

Also, if you have a Wii you HAVE to get Xenosaga, you're welcome

Ha, I haven't bothered to get ALL the variations of Chrono Trigger yet, but I of course got the DS version for on-the-go nostalgia addiction. I've actually been playing my original game on the SNES (meaning, the first save file I ever started) for YEARS now, slowly getting everyone up to star level by playing through once or twice a year.

Thanks for the battle theme cover, it was cool! Looks like they have a link for downloading it; might have to add that to the 'ol pod.

Oh, and by Xenosaga, do you mean Xenoblade Chronicles? That's the only Xeno I know of coming to the Wii. In any case: totally preordered!

In all seriousness welcome to the club! I'm new myself and already really like this place.

Sir, we could throw our gloves to the ground and debate endlessly on this topic, and perhaps we may; but for now I'll agree to disagree and shake your hand in friendship.

Thank you for the welcome and I too think that I'll end up liking this place!

And to everyone who has extended thier greetings: thank you!

Yeah I meant Xenoblade and have no idea how Xenosaga came out...I did that reply on my phone while at work so I must not have been paying attention o.O

For CT I did have one that I maxed everything on, and man is Crono ever stupidly overpowered lol. Also used that file to burn through and get EVERY ending which one or two were harder to figure out how to get. Of course now the DS ver has that endings collection thing that keeps track of em so I'll eventually have to fill that whole thing up =P

I also have some problems with Chrono Cross...>.> I mean the game is still ok, but I woulda liked it more if I wasn't so disappointed while playing it that it wasn't like CT. Even then the premise of the story and certain things the happen and the needlessly complicated way you had to fight the last boss...etc etc.

As someone who never used Steam until joining the forums I can promise that it's pretty easy to work with. The only unfortunate thing is that you can't join the group chat until you purchase something through steam.

Yeah I like the collection thing on the DS; I always messed with getting different endings on the SNES but I never bothered to write down what I had gotten. My favorite thing wasn't even an ending; it was a time when I decided to keep feeding the cat back home, which resulted in MANY cats. When the cat runs away at the end and Crono's mother follows, it's ALL those cats! I dunno why but that cracked me up.

Anyway yeah, my problems with Chrono Cross were mostly with potential. They COULD have filled that gaping hole at the end of Trigger where Magus was looking for Schala...but NOPE. Schala was even in the game, for pete's sake! You know...sorta. With different colored hair. The whole thing was only vaguely a sequel, and I think that's what annoys me. They connected it to Trigger on so many points, but then broke so many other points that it made all of those connections not matter. From what I've read of the Beautiful Dreamers thing on the SNES, it sounded like that one had a more solid story which connected a bit better to Trigger.

The main problem I'm gona have is that my main computer is a little laptop, and I just don't think I can rely on it for games of any kind; certainly not big-time games. I hate using the keyboard too, so I'd have to get a controller, and...well I'm just not a computer gamer at all, I guess. I'd much rather be using my console.

Oh man, I know how that is. If I can get something on a console rather than PC I do. I hate playing with a keyboard so much. It isn't so much the keyboard as the mouse though, and I think I finally figured out what it is. If any mouse movement that does not require a click moves the screen it makes me feel carsick. We played Dungeon Defenders this weekend and I tried a round using the keyboard; I didn't realize there was built in voice chat with open mic. Almost positive that some poor people heard my pitiful whimpering.

If you do end up playing anything that you want to use a controller for may I suggest you use a wired X360 controller. As I found out wireless ones cannot be plugged in with a play and charge cable but require a Wireless receiver. PS3 could be plugged in with the charge cable but needed drivers.

Welcome to the forums Alexx! XD

yes, Chrono Cross... Great music, but I think they really tried too hard to make it a sequel when all the blocks just weren't there. '_' A few things I want to say about the game:

Don't you love:
1) how they brought back Robo from Chrono Trigger?... Just so they can KILL HIM just a few seconds after Serge and party meet him for the first time! Robo's death 5:37 in
2) how much trouble it was to read Harle's dialogue since she had such a strong accent and her dialogue was all written phonetically?

Also, I couldn't stand how Pierre would speak some French, but do it very wrong. -_-
English ----> French
"I" ----> "Je"
"Me" ----> "Moi"
It didn't matter if Pierre meant to say "I" or "me," he always said "Moi." >.<

I also couldn't stand how Kid spoke with a "Australian or British Cockney accent". Especially since she was the heroine of the story. Because of it I couldn't take her seriously. -_- -Not to say I don't like Australian or British accents, but I just couldn't get immersed when she was around. >.<

aaaargh, and I can't stand how it seemed like they tried to add Chrono Trigger references JUST for the sake of doing it! >.< -and like you said, how some of the facts in Chrono Cross didn't correlate with Chrono Trigger facts. One being that Chrono Cross claims that human existence was the result of evolution that was triggered by Lavos falling to Earth, but in Chrono Trigger, Ayla and her tribe existed before Lavos fell. '_'

There's more, but I'll stop. =x sorry for the rant guys. @_@

I do agree with Pie on the accent thing. I think Australians are very under represented when it comes to games, and when they do appear they are mostly the stereotypical G'day mate Aussie. For example in Dead Island one of the first people you meet has a very cliche accent. Also, the character Miranda from Mass Effect is voiced by an Australian, but personally I hate her guts.

But anyway.

An actual retro gamer? Who would rather die than play Halo (or even Mario 64)? I didn't even know those actually existed. lol. Anyway, welcome to our corner of the interwebs. As I have told many others before, I am the town pyro and Bear usually manages to keep me out of trouble (barely). I was still a wee youngling when such games as Chrono Trigger were all the rage, but I am still trying to discover games that I never had the chance to play (I have the PS re-release of CT as a matter of fact). I'm really glad to see that we now have a really unique gaming perspective amongst our group.
