Tada! Column be!
Chronfusion. Hey! Away with you Pun Fairy!
The other day I was snooping around the Anime Wallpapers site and came across a wallpaper for an anime
Crusade." The logo placed on the paper greatly resembles that of
-" series (and obvious references being a clock in one C of the logo
cross in the
other C). Can anyone explain what this is all about? Thanks!
Wasn't there a weird Chrono Trigger side story released on a subscription
SNES service in Japan only? Other than that and the two games, I don't know
anything about a Chrono
The only thing that logo has in common with Chrono Trigger is the clock in the C, which isn't much, considering
how Chrono more or less means "pertaining to time." So yeah. No connection whatsoever, except that the
series in question has fair odds of involving time travel.
More on long running series.

Googleshng! And Zucot, too...
In response to the letter about RPG series with a gazillion games to
(Dragon Warrior, Resident Evil, and of course, Final Fantasy), you'd
realize that these series have developed a reputation for success.
games may not be consistently good (FF2j and 8 were AWFUL), they do
good percentage of great games. After all, they wouldn't have been
long if they didn't.
Having said that, you can't blame the publishers for milking the
all its worth. I enjoy Xenosaga, and both my brother and I eagerly
second installment. And for those who disliked it, there's good news
on that: It
will eventually END. In all honesty, it's nice to know that Namco will
probably only make six, rather than blow it into two dozen
spin-offs, though it's still possible, and still too early to tell.
Bottom line, it's always quality over quality.

Congrats NeoCarbuncle, you're the second person to spell "Zucot" right.
Have some of these that I stole from Googleshng ~~~~~~
As for your letter, I think it's funnny that you say publishers are milking
the FF / DW series. Up until very recently, alll Square games were
published by Electronic Arts (outside of Japan.) I highly doubt EA had any
say in the content of the games. When a franchise becomes as big as FF or
DW, the development house has a lot of leadway with the content of the games
themselves, and publishers tend to leave things alone. Now in the case of
Xenosaga (which I wouldn't call a franchise) the publisher probably has
final say over most of the game content. Now if Xenosaga really takes off,
do you think that Namco would let it end after the initial X number of games
they had planned for? Money rules the world my friend.
Uh, no Zu. EA and Square were co-publishing eachother's games for a while there, and the Japanese publisher
is the one which controls the flow of sequels in any event. In any case, the point still stands that if
Xenosaga does well enough, 10 years from now we may see Namco releasing Xenosaga Online, Xenosaga Legends,
