Googleshng - 4:00 EST

Being sick for the better part of the week gets you thinking about a lot of strange things. Like, what's the story with sinuses? I can see no purpose for some sort of passage that leads from my nose, up around my eyes, towards my ears. Is it a heat sink sort of thing?

What the heck is the point of this? I have an intro blurb sitting right there...


Hey guys, great webpage, blah blah blah...

OK, I decided to write in to ask a few things about the Chrono series.

First of all, I have heard that in Chrono Trigger it is possible to save Lucca's mum Lara in the flashback at Fiona's Church (AD1000). Is this true? There is a note saying that the password is Lucca's mum's name, so I guess you've got to press L, A, R, A at a certain point, but I don't know where. Some clarification on this would be most appreciated.

Secondly, Can you offer any advice to someone struggling with Chrono Cross. I always reach the part where I must defeat the six elemental dragons, but then the game gets insanely tough and I can't find anywhere to gain levels easily enough. What can I do in this situation?

Finally, does Square-Enix have any other plans for another Chrono game? The original was a great game, and the second did have a few merits to back it up. Personally, I would like to see another in the style of Trigger, with perhaps a few of Cross's stronger features sprinkled throughout (The elemental field idea was a good one). I suppose that's all in the hands of the design team, though...

Oh and by the way, a woodchuck would chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could chuck.



I can't really see how much more specific you can get on your CT concern. You just run up to the machine and rattle off that password as quickly as possible, keeping in mind that they changed it somewhat for the PSX port what with the different button names.

As for Chrono Cross, well, you can only really gain levels from beating bosses, so there isn't really a place to do that. Your stats catch up to where they should be afterwards just by being in your party during fights though, so, either don't switch people around much, or find some wimpy critters.

Oh, and if some third Chrono game were to be announced, you'd see it mentioned on our main page there. Frequently I'd wager.

Mind the gap...

Where's the Q&A this weekend?! I'm dyin' over here... JuntMonkey


Heck if I know. I would have come along and tossed some up for all of you had someone told me a fill-in was needed, but nobody thought to take me out of my cryostasis tube early.

Crossing Over

Goog or Andrew,

I recently saw the news bulletin "Namco, Capcom Combine Forces to Create Sim-RPG"( and I must say that I was disappointed in Capcom's listed lineup.

I am guessing that the lineup is not finalized; however, I wish Capcom would be more creative, for lack of a better word, with the characters they use. I couldn't believe that they weighted down their lineup with 6 Street Fighter characters. I must ask why in the world they would overlook the use of any Breath of Fire characters. I would be happy if they would at least use Viewtiful Joe or Maximo or even Dante from Devil May Cry (although those games don't much interest me).

I can see where the time setting would be conflictive to the time settings of Maximo and Devil May Cry, or even Breath Fire... But seriously, why the hell isn't Mega Man or Ryu(BoF) on that list...?

Also, based on what little knowledge there is of this game, would you say that the basis seems similar to Kingdom Hearts or is this and entirely different animal? Some of the screens made the fighting seem like a mix between the fighting simulator and the Tales of Destiny battle systems, while others made it look a little like Disgaea. So basically, what seems to be the main style of fighting in this game?

P.S. I'm sure this question has been asked and answered in the past, but is that the same Momo from bofIII? They look pretty similar...

I think it's safe to say there's a lot of characters not mentioned in that initial press release. From what I can see, this is one of the many many games in the vein of Super Robot Wars, where a company takes all their characters and throws them into a crazy TRPG crossover blender... which for some reason don't like to come out in this country.

How Rumors Get Started

Google. This is something that you must hear.
You see, i'm a big Masato Kato fan and just the other day, i sent an e-mail to Soraya Saga concerning Masato Kato's future involment with Xenosaga and here is the response:

"Masato Kato was involved in Baten Kaitos by Monolithsoft (Best wishes for his continued success). I heard he was back to Square Enix and have no more interest in Xeno series."

At first, i was devastated. No more Kato in Xenosaga. This was truely sad news for me. Anyway, after posting this sad news on the Gamefaqs Xenosaga boards, I pondered this new development. "Kato back at Square. What the hell would they want with Ka...


Can this be it? Can this be Chrono Break?


Anything's possible, but I personally prefer just to stick to things which are actually substantiated in some way or other.


And thus ends the drought of columns. More Q&A goodness tomorrow.
