Chrono Trigger

Part 1

As a fan of the Let's Play threads here in Games, I've always wanted to try my hand at one of them, but I wanted to find a game that would lend itself perfectly to the format. My search for this perfect game has so far been fruitless, but recently I have come across a title that just might work. It is called: Chrono Trigger.

I doubt any of you have heard of this forgotten gem, as it was released on a fairly unknown console that was over shadowed by the TurboGrafx-16 in the 90s called the Super Nintendo during its death-throes. I have heard from many sources (including my best friend's cousin who spent a month in Japan, so he knows what he's talking about) that this game is very enjoyable. I have to admit, I've never played this game before (or any RPG for that matter) so this can be a learning experiance for both of us.

Wow, is that 3d? With those graphics, it kinda makes you wonder why the Super Nintendo flopped.

Hmmm, it looks like this game might have something to do with time...

"Who the hell are- oh, hey Mom."

"Yeah, yeah, that's wonder- AH GOD! Why would you do that!? My eyes!"

"Sure thing! Just give me a second to regrow my retinas."

Our hero stretches the weariness from his bones.

And flexes the manliness into his muscles.

Alright, I need a decision! Do we go
