I hate it when corporations live in bubbles. 

Well, that's a punch right in the nuts.   :picardno

I'm quite insulted. I'm 21 and about to be a college senior. I hate when my radical socialist beliefs make me a pariah, but I suppose it can't be helped.

Chrono and crew fought for freedom, not for government controlled economies!  Go Chrono!

So why all this hatred?  And especially calling them immoral dicks?  I get it, you guys think you're chaotic good, doing what you know is right in the face of unfair rules.  But you're showing yourselves to be so much more hateful and ignorant than the thing you're attacking.  Ths lynch mob mentality and ignorant self-righteousness is disgusting.

Because we wanted to play this game. We wanted to play it bad and we're pissed off. I can bash Square if I want to. I won't do it here, because I know this place is trying to keep a good image, but you can bet I'm going to vent everywhere else. I don't care if Square is in the right legally. We need to change the laws, and if that means content creators take their balls and go back home to Galt's Gulch, then fine. We don't need their stinky balls, we'll make our own balls.

You're going to make your own mod (or balls?)
Good luck, man.  Good luck.

A very intelligent response for a redneck!   :shock:

Seriously, though, great post.

That's right, stick it to the man!

Seriously, I wouldn't go to court with these guys.  A compromise is the only hope here.  From what I understand, Glenn27,  they are trying to open up lines of communication.  Chill out a little bit.

As I said, extremely unlikely that would happen, but it would be the best thing for all parties involved.

All this makes me want to start one of those petition things, but they never really accomplish anything.  I still don't understand how video game companies can be so callous towards their fans.  Square needs to get with the times here. 

One more thing that everyone has failed to mention that might lean towards Square officially recognizing and selling this game.  Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is being released on WiiWare here in a month.  That game looks like nothing more than a rom hack of the original game.  If I ran Square, here is what I would do.  I would give the creators of this hack a small budget to polish the game.  Once the game is finished to Square's liking, WiiWare, PSN and XBOX Live that badboy.  That would make a hell of a lot more than a frivolous lawsuit.  Hell, if they don't want to consider it cannon, put a disclaimer before it.  That would be one hell of good PR move.  Talk about showing a fanbase that you care.  Odds of that happening are very, very slight, but that would be great.

Hopefully, hopefully Square opens a line of communication at least.

So, all we need to do is raise $150,000 and we get the hack?   8)

Hey guys been lurking about for years on here from time to time. Real shame about the C&D. Was really looking forward to playing this. CC was ok in it's own right but never felt like a true Chrono game to me. The original CT always held a special place for me since it was the first real RPG I enjoyed. Granted I had played others before then but it was really the first one I actually took the time to finish. I just got a DS and the new CT a few weeks ago since my SNES has bit the dust and the PS1 version is damn near unplayable. I too was hoping that it was a fake but on the flip side this may be for the best. If it was a fake then trying to confirm it with Square could have started a whole new shit storm in the event they had no idea. At least in this case if SE has half an ounce of brain power left then perhaps a deal can be reached to allow the release of CE in some form or another. Perhaps if the right parties can agree to it then maybe you could even sell SE the rights to the game. This would perhaps allow them the chance to clean it up and then make any additions or mods that may be needed for a DS release. It's obvious that a ton of hard work was put into this and I think if SE could get the ok from most of the original CT team then they would stand to make a ton of money for paying you guys for the hard work. What they would offer you would possibly pale compared to the amount of money they could possibly make. I'd easily pay $40 for a DS version of this game. Seriously guys look up what may need to be done and get talking with SE to see if some agreement can be reached that allows the release. It would be a shame to see this much work be wasted.

EDIT-Normally write in orange on various message boards. Guess that color isn't going to work too well here ^_^()

It would be fantastic if SE did that, man.  Unfortunately, I just don't see that happening.  There is almost no precedent for this kind of thing happening.  I think Valve did it once, but to actually release a physical game of this is way beyond wishful thinking.  Don't get me wrong, it is not outside the realm of possibility, but if SE didn't make it themselves, I don't see it happening.  I hope I'm incorrect though.

I think Aladdin needs a hacked sequel.  Seriously, though, most companies would let a project like this slide.  It seems I pick the wrong games to hold out hope for such as the Chrono series, Earthbound series and Fire Pro Wrestling series.
