I just played Chrono Trigger for over an hour.

In Japanese.
Not that I could read alot of it(one character speaks in an insanely thick and formal SAMURAI dialet, the royal family speaks high keigo which I oddly understood... not sure what that means. Alot of Kanji, too), what I did read is alot funnier, and I wouldn't have to read it anyway.
I could play it in russian, swedish, arabic... DOESN'T MATTER. I can play it with my feet without looking directly at the creen. I'VE DONE IT BEFORE.

In fact I set the battle modes to harder ones just for more of a challenge.
THE ATTACK NAMES ARE DIFFERENT AND IT DOESN'T MATTER.
I haven't played it in years and I can just go "Oh, now I need to do that, so I'll press this sequence of buttons and kill"
SPINAL FUNCTION.
If I did a blood transfuction I'm sure the recieving human(in addition to getting high from all the meds) would BE ABLE TO PLAY CHRONO TRIGGER.

That's not very long, either. I used to do 4-5 hour stretches. I don't remember how long it took to beat lavos when I'm SUPPOSED to lose...

I've seen all 11 main endings and variations of most of them.
I used to level up by playing the game through.
Fight the same series of wimps in the forect for an hour or two? I DON'T THINK SO. I think I'll BEAT THE GAME 3 times.
The same way EVERY TIME.
Fastest way to winning.
Then I'd work at accumulating more items and becoming so strong NOTHING could stop me. But only after completing EVERY POSSIBLE SIDE STORY.

This was accomplished in part by a trick my brother (ex-in-law) found.
He spend 6 hours fighting the same battle over and over.
Steal the same item from the same monsters.
I was FLOORED when I heard that.
He had a save on the system with MAXED OUT magic power on EVERY character.
Then I went on to bit by bit max every character as much as possible.

Then I lent it to my then girlfriend, and somehow that save was erased.
it's wuite possible the fact that I had a Game Gear save on it that was so fucked it screwed the system, but she may (VERY DOUBTFUL) have deleted it on purpose, but I think she was ashamed of ACCIDENTALLY deleting it and lied.
But I don't remember if you CAN just delete a save in CT....

This game was my sole entertainment source save random TV things for 2-3 years.
THAT'S INSANE.
I had an old-school Geocities site(long gone, I loved it) dedicated to subtexts and retardo descriptions of characters.
I sprayed my hair the color of my fav character, I bought a replica sword like the one he carried, GREW MY HAIR TO THE SAME LENGTH.
Used his name on EVERY message board, wait, they were all CHAT ROOMS then.
Remember CHAT ROOMS?
There was a CT chatroom I had regular DAILY meetings in.
I SOMEHOW developed a crush on the webmaster until I saw she was really palsied and horse-like.
Still cool. Not attractive.

WOW.
This is the most meaningless crap I've ever written, but it's a bit of an insight onto how far into things I get.

Any CT fans?
Anyone else have a similar past with a different game?

I loved Chrono Trigger, but this is just unhealthy!


After you've beaten the game, doesn't it only take like 20 minutes to beat it again? You can just do the fair and then use the opposite platform on the time machine to go straight to lavos, right?

Dan I. (Dan I.), Friday, 18 August 2006 07:49 (thirteen years ago) link

Ok you're insane but yes it's a flipping good game!

Darramouss ftw! (Darramouss ftw), Friday, 18 August 2006 12:18 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah, but that only gets you one ending.
Hell, you have to be incomplete by one conversation to get the ending where Crono talks...

The GZeus (The GZeus), Friday, 18 August 2006 13:31 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah, the New Game + lets you battle Lavos whenever you want but that only gets you one ending.

The GZeus (The GZeus), Friday, 18 August 2006 13:32 (thirteen years ago) link

I've never seen that ending! What does he say?

Dan I. (Dan I.), Friday, 18 August 2006 17:32 (thirteen years ago) link

He says: "Wow travelling through time and killing things was way more fun than going to that fucking fayre my mom wanted me to go to."

Darramouss ftw! (Darramouss ftw), Friday, 18 August 2006 21:30 (thirteen years ago) link

I basically (except not as whole-hog) did this with Vagrant Story, where I pumped up my agility so much that my character could automatically dodge all physical attacks.

c('°c) (Leee), Friday, 18 August 2006 21:54 (thirteen years ago) link

He says something dumb like "Hay, what are you doing? We have to go!"
But he says saomething entirely different in Japanese.
There's ALOT of censorship and mistranslation in CT.
That ending is RIDICULOUSLY censored.

If you do a google search for something like "chrono trigger" "endings" you should be able to find the site that lists them all. They also have save states for SNES9X(I think) that take you right there. you MAY have to beat Lavos's last two stages. I don't remember, I only used it for the English version.

The GZeus (The GZeus), Friday, 18 August 2006 22:02 (thirteen years ago) link

I deliberately embued tombot with mod powers during ILG v1 for the express purpose of fucking with those two, and lo, lolz were had.

g-kit, Friday, 4 July 2008 08:04 (eleven years ago) link

In fact, I also fucked with GZeus enough to make him take it to ModReq. Unfortunately, due to the fact that I was modding ILG at the time, his protests fell on deaf ears (and lo, etc).

Is there an ILG Compendium of Darra vs GZeus thread, or did I dream that?

anyway, chrono trigger - revisiting a lot of older games, or just shit in general, that i loved when i was 10, 11 years old - this is almost uniformly v.v.v.v. unrewarding. except for chrono trigger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it's p. unique among squaresoft bullshits in that regard too. ff7 is atrocious to me today, but i could prob sit down and HELLA dig on some chrono trigger rn. everything about it is perfect *lone, manful tear trickles down face, is absorbed by neckbeard*

I played the U.S. version of this on PC. The only turn-based RPG I've ever finished. So great. Not Secret of Mana great, but great.

Re: the original post, I had a moment like that when I watched The Ring (Japanese version) with Italian subtitles in a hotel room in Pisa. I watched the whole thing, despite speaking not a word of either language. Good times.

On Wednesday I played Chrono Trigger for over an hour, on my SNES, because I was too tired to do anything else.

I'm glad GZeus wrote this because if he hadn't I would probably come here and write something as RANDOMLY FILLED WITH EXPLOSIONS OF CAPITAL LETTERS and references to how my DNA has been PARTIALLY REWRITTEN TO INSTILL CHRONO TRIGGER INSTINCT etc

So many things about this game are done so well -- I know the game has been praised to death but the design is so confident, the story is so sinewy, the world(s) is (are) so hangout-friendly (the fair alone? good god), the stakes raise so RIGHT... if this post had been about any other game I don't think it'd be ILX legend becase GZeus was 100% right (in addition to 200% funny).

I just started playing this on ZSNES. I had started a game a week ago and didn't realize it didn't automatically save upon staying at an inn, so lost the first hour. To make up for it I mashed the ~ key so grinding and getting back to that spot would be fast. Probably a bad idea, now I want to use it in nearly every fight.

On January 4, Trump's official inauguration committee received a $100,000 donation from a limited liability company named Wings of Time. The inauguration committee filings list an office tower in Los Angeles as the address for Wings of Time, but there is no individual's name associated with the organization.

Luckey has a separate company, Luckey Arms LLC, registered at the same address as the one listed by Wings of Time in the inauguration donation records. And California corporation records list another corporation as the manager of Wings of Time LLC, an entity called Fiendlord's Keep, Inc. Luckey is listed in the records as the sole officer for Fiendlord's Keep. Luckey and his attorney did not respond to requests for comment.

And for those who are curious, Wings of Time and Fiendlord's Keep aren't random names. They're elements from a popular video game originally for Super Nintendo called Chrono Trigger. According to a 2015 Forbes profile, Chrono Trigger is one of Luckey's favorite games.

I picked up some SNES-style RPGs on the Steam sale - CrossCode and HEARTBEAT. Haven't played HEARTBEAT yet but Crosscode is fun and quick to pick up - I got an old Falcom game called "Trails in the Sky" at the same time and the intro is just excruciatingly long. I don't care how much time you spent on the opening FMV, I DON'T WANT TO WATCH IT.

the way i feel is, if you can’t tell your story with sprites then why are you making a video game

Vape Store (crüt), Thursday, 4 July 2019 22:34 (two months ago) link

Maybe they prefer vector graphics

No probably Trails in the Sky is not _that_ bad but I feel like games are more along the lines of what I want to play today than they were ten years ago or however many years ago that game came out, the difference between the trite repetitive dialogue and boring unskippable cut scene versus booting up the modern game Crosscode and jumping right into "Hey let's do some cool stuff" was night and day for me, I'm old and overstimulated. See also why I couldn't get into any Zelda games between OOT and BOTW, the whole "Hey before you start why don't you play a mandatory animal herding minigame and do a bunch of other stupid bullshit". Shit, you know what I will do if I want an infodump? I will read one of the several dozen books in my backlog.

ciderpress, Friday, 5 July 2019 01:34 (two months ago) link

I'll probably get back to Trails in the Sky to be honest; it's just the whole steam sale thing where I have like seven new games and I can't play them all at once. Honestly I feel like this whole binging model is why I had 100 sale/bundle games that I never actually played and it's why I didn't buy basically any Steam games at all for the past three years and just played Civ V.

Anyway Chrono Trigger is a fun game even if Earthbound is more my jam.
