    I would just like to note here that back when I was just a youngin, there was a copy of Chrono Trigger being sold at Gamestop for around $80 used. I remember overhearing the transaction and thinking “ew, why on Earth would someone pay $80 for a shooter game? They’re all so bad!” Poor, naive me.

    The version I downloaded had a track missing at the second break, and I really hope that wasn’t Magus’s theme.

    Also, about the only way I could consistently get the “float away on the bell” ending was to fight Lavos by taking the Epoch to 1999 AD for the final fight (since you basically blow up Lavos’s head with it). I did also get the developer’s room ending by beating Lavos in his insane form at the Ocean Palace on a New Game+ run.

    And as someone who was still new to RPGs when he played Chrono Trigger for the first time, I must confess that I always New Game +’d my files. I didn’t actually beat the game legitimately for the first time until the DS version.

    Seems like Phil and/or Mike aren’t reading these comments anymore, which is a shame BUT based on a comment Phil made in an episode I can’t remember I downloaded Tangledeep for Switch and look forward to playing when I’m finished with the Dragon Quest 3 remake.

    I wanted to add, that in Chrono Trigger, when you have to option of keeping or killing Magus, is also the only way to remove the curse on frog. When you kill, Magus, in the end, you see Frog in is human form. That is why I did kill him in my first run!
