Out Of Time

Wednesday was a glorious day. Why?

Chrono Trigger DS just landed in my hands today and I’ve already sunk far too much time into it. For a 13 year old game, it still holds up amazingly well and the new tweaks are kind of nice.

There’s also the added bonus that I finally have a legitimate portable copy of what is probably my all-time favourite videogame, period. I have a top 10 list of favourite games and it’s often in flux, though many games tend to stay in it for a long time. Chrono Trigger is on a whole other level of adoration though. It’s the Mona Lisa of JRPGs as far as I’m concerned.

What am I doing typing this? I’m off to go romp through time with my band of merry adventurers!

  1. I’ve been trying to find it, but coming up short. I’ve not been very determined about it anyway because I fear I won’t play anything else I’ve bought.

    I am pissed that Square Enix figures that they can charge me a nostalgia tax for a 15-year-old game.

    Oh, well. It’s the only S-E game I’d pay a tax for.

  2. As I’m finding with Disgaea, the DS is such a perfect delivery method for these JRPGs. Got five minutes? Open it up and go. Gotta quit but can’t save? Close it and you’re golden.

    I’m really pumped about Chrono Trigger, but I’m good with Disgaea for the time being.
