|"To Whom it May Concern" works too, ya know...|
Dear Sir. . .or Madam. . .or, well, IT. . .
You've played Chrono Cross. . .*jealous, envious*. . .Does the battle system work out well? Is the storyline any good? Is the gameplay fun? I _must_ know! My local video doesn't rent multi-disc games, so I'm not sure if they'll get it. If they don't get it, I'll have to sit on my bed and pretend to play Chrono Cross until they haul me away to the asylum. The only thing I can do is go on the biasless opinion of a generless person!
From what I have played so far, the game is a good
play. However, I will admit it isn't the greatest game ever made. Don't
get me wrong, I'm not saying I don't like it, I just think it was
a little overhyped. Otherwise, yes it's quite neeto keen. :)
| Hi. I'm guessing you don't even bother about
LoM since you've all got CC now (which, btw, won't be released here)...
However, Here's the lyrics of the song in the beginning... In swedish and
in english. Didn't see it on the LoM- page, don't know if you have it...
The swedish is official, the english is my translation... basically word-
for- word. So don't blame me if it's crappy.
...There. Yeah, I'm swedish and my english is not perfect. Some grammar and spelling errors might be my fault... But believe me, it was rather strange even in *my* language. And I got the text from Super PLAY, the biggest and best Gaming- magazine in Sweden. They got it from Square.
|More Chrono Cross|
So today was the day, all right: the day of the dying vehicles! I picked up Chrono Cross first thing this morning, but then spent the next four hours criss-crossing Cedar Rapids trying to get my friend's car into a shop. She's out of town with a critically ill grandmother, and I promised my friend I'd make sure her car was fixed before she got back (or else she'll be unable to go to work Monday). So, it took four hours of back-and-forth before I finally got to sit down and play the game I've gone crazy waiting for!
At least this story has a happy ending: I'm now eating dinner, having played three hours of CC already, and absolutely loving it. I was immediately enraptured by the game when it essentially recreated the opening of CT, with Serge being woken up by his mom, meowing kitties in the house, and a friend I had to go meet.
I love this game! I've been grinning like a little kid at how well it preserves the feel of CT, and I can't wait to play more after dinner. Too bad I work the next three days and can't play as much as I want to!
|You know, the way I see it, Serge is a puppet and Kid is the ventriloquist...|
|Does it bother you at all that Serge doesn't talk? Crono could pull it off, he was a regular chump kid pulled into strange circumstances with a mom and cat waiting for him at home but Serge has a whole dark, mysterious past. When he discovers things, there's no way to tell what he's thinking! Personally, it's keeping me from getting into the game. And heck, Chronocross isn't impressing me at all that much. The graphics aren't any better than FF8's (though they're GOOD, just not groundbreaking) and the story is boring so far. Oh hell, I shouldn't be writing you, I should be writing a review. :P|
Kid: Hey, Serge! Lets go jump off a bridge into the river!
(Hopefully I don't get reprimanded for that. :P)
Anyway, when the player chooses one of the choices, the person being addressed
will react as though Serge had actually said the choice. Kind of a sneaky
way to get around it, but hey... suits me just fine.
This is a very important question and I REALLY need you to send me an answer, and you don't have to print it. I have a SNES, a halfway decent computer (Pentium 200 Mhz, 32 Megs RAM, No 3D Accelerator), and an N64. I really want to get both Chrono Cross and Final Fantasy IX, but I'm not sure what I should do. I can think of three main options:
1.) Buy a PSX and both games, despite the fact that after FFIX is released,
there will be hardly any RPGs to come out for the PSX.
Please tell me which of these ideas would be best. If you can think of a better idea, tell me that one. Please help me out, b/c I desperately want these games, and one is selling out as we speak. HELP ME GOOGLESHNG!!!

This is really a tough call. The decision between a PlayStation 2 and a PlayStation is yours to make. I personally would go with the less expensive original PlayStation and just buy the games. That way, I'd still have a kickass system with a bunch of lower priced RPG's (Older ones that made greatest hits and such.) that I hadn't played, but could bring me new experiences anyway. you'd also be saving yourself a hefty hunk of cash if the PlayStation 2 fails. God forbid, of course....
As for Bleem, I would actually reccommend against
purchasing a copy. My reasons for this isthat Bleem's emulation has not
yet been perfected, and they havn't released a new copy in almost a year.
I own a copy myself, and am extremely disatisfied with it, as it does
not perform to what I expected. I own a total of one game (out of my library
of 20 or so) that is fully compatible with Bleem. In my opinion, that's
piss poor. (In case you're curious, the game is Bushido Blade. And even
then, I have an Athlon 700 mhz computer with a Voodoo 3 card, and it still
ran slower than molasses on a log in January..) I guess what I'm saying
is, I wouldn't purchase a(nother) copy until they perfect the emulation
and speed it up a bit.
|It's good to be bad...|
| In response to one of the quickies about why
there aren't any RPGs that you play the badguys, well, I can think of at
least one beyond the Dungeon Keeper series, though if you haven't played
it, you probably don't wanna. :) Wizardry IV: The Return of Werdna. Essentially,
you played the guy that your characters in Wizardry I beat up, after regaining
just enough power to start working your way back into control of your dungeon,
and crawled your way out to the town above and payed those dang do-gooders
back. :) But, well, being Wizardry IV, it was one of the OLD-school Apple
][-style line drawing, 16-color image, pc-speaker kind of RPG, so if you
don't have a soft spot for games you grew up on, you might wanna stay away
before it attacks ya with its datedness.
Anyway, I felt this worthy to post for one reason: If you think games are no good because they're dated... then... to put it bluntly... YOU SUCK! :P
I had actually had one hell of a blast earlier
today digging out my old NES, dusting it off, and putting MegaMan 2 in
it. Only thing is, it just didnt have the challenge it used to. I was
averaging about 2 minutes per level... But seriously. Old school games
are like crack - you'll always come back for more... eventually. ¬
That weird motorcycle guy from CT is Jonny!
That's good to know.
Does Crono Cross take place in the same universe as CT?
|Same universe, yes. Chrono Cross is set 20 years after Chrono Trigger.|
I need to know if Chrono Cross has a modchip lockout, as I'm planning on importing it (I live in Europe)
Hope you can help,
|Chrono Cross does not have a modchip lockout.|
Don't you think the Red Hot Chile Peppers should make a real game based
on their "Californication" video? That would be spiffy X 10.
|I don't know about that. Red Hot Chilli Peppers give me heartburn...|
Im so busy playing Chrono Cross that i dont have enough time to send you this quickie.

|I'm so hammered from lack of sleep that I'm not actually typing this.|
I feel sick...why am I using the computer?
|Close all the windows with naked pictures of Linda Tripp and you wont feel sick while using the computer anymore - trust me on this one.|
i know you'll get a million of these but Chrono Cross is Amazing! Hope
you got your copy or you're getting it soon
|Why don't I just call this "Q&A: The Chrono Cross Edition?"|
