I just read through the Chrono Cross FAQ, and it said "El Nido is an archipelago, or a series of Islands. Zeal was also an archipelago."

When I read that last sentence, something clicked in my head. Zeal fell into the sea, right?

What if... El Nido is actually the remnants of a once sunken Zeal?

Other Topics and the Prerelease / Dragon God song lyrics

Has anyone else noticed the man's voice singing at the beginning of the song in CC that plays when you're fighting the Dragon God at Terra Tower?

At first, it sounds like just random "ooh's and ahh's" but I think their might be something else there...

General Discussion / Florida school systems are fucked up.
« on: May 17, 2008, 06:30:21 pm »
Maybe you've heard of the recent time switch, but if not, then let me fill you in:

Down here in Florida, the Orange County Public Schoolboard has decided to go ahead and switch Junior High school and High school times. That means that those of us like me, who are going into their freshman year after the summer, will be forced to arrive at 9:30 A.M. and leave at 4:00 P.M., instead of the current 7:20 A.M., 2:00 P.M. schedule.

The Reason:

This whole operation is designed to save OCPS a lot of money gaswise. By switching the bus schedules, they can apparently save a large sum of cash on fuel and buses. How this works, I have absoluetely no clue, but it sounds like a horrid idea.

The Downsides:

1) Students who have applied for jobs after school, such as I, will be forced to quit/be fired due to lack of attendance.

2) Students who are in sports teams (again, like I) won't have any free time left. With the load of homework from advanced classes, along with practice/games, won't be able to have any kind of social life.

3) Do you really want little 11 year old 6th and 7th graders hanging around by themselves at such an early hour in the morning? They used that time for kids in high school because they're responsible. And what are kid's going to do if they're parents don't get off of work before or at 2 o' clock? Expect a higher crime rate, drug rate, and abduction rate.

Who's To Blame:

The Floridian government. Earlier this year, votes were cast on whether to take off a section of taxes value at $25. Of course, the rednecks and old people who populate over 80% of Florida voted Yes, while those of us who actually care about the economy and the state of the government declined. What that 80% didn't realize was the fact that the money was going to come from elsewhere, and in this case, the school system.

The entirety of this is really pissing me off. I'm even considering attending a public protest at the OCPS headquarters...

They say that you can't get a Utopia, and that you just have to roll with it.

Well guess what? I don't want a Utopia. I want a fucking education.

REALLY old.. but I thought it turned out pretty well. Any critiques/comments?

For a while now, I've been thinking of writing a Novel (or extermeley inflated fanfic either way you look at it) About the events that transpired right before Chrono Cross, centering around the fall of Gaurdia, Lynx/Wazuki and Harle, Belthasar and Schala, what happened to Magus, and the Time Devourer.

It wouldn't actually be one story throughout the book, but a collection of short stories centering around the events which set the stage for Cross. What I want from you guys is some topics I should hit, if I haven't already. Any ideas?

Dream Splash I - Zeal [2007] / "This Throne" - A Small Narrative...
« on: May 11, 2008, 12:27:18 am »
This throne... This throne...

I deserve it, don't I?

Yes, of course. I'm leading my people to glory! To the Promised Land!

And those who opposed me... Foolish bastards! Not so smart when I throw you into the depths of hell now, are you?

This throne... This throne...

The successors. They don't deserve it either.

Look at that girl... Pathetic. I almost pity her. Her "Ideals". They're childish nonsense...

And that boy! Just looking at him makes me sick! He has evil in his eyes...

The way he spoke to the Red Haired one. It almost sent chills down my spine.


This Throne... This Throne...

That prophet, he wants it. He thrives off the very thought of controlling such a magnifecent kingdom such as mine.

He shall soon be dealt with. Not with Dalton, no, he's far too idiotic. That prophet is a witty one, but our lord and savior will soon strike him down like the sinner he is.

This throne... This throne...

What of those travelers? They desire it... Yes.. The cretins. The Red Haired one, I can see it in his eyes; his hatred towards our Lord. They all reek of the unholy essence.

And all the while i'm caring for my loyal people, they murmur and speak behind my back. They speak of what's eating my soul; what's driving me mad.

They'll never know the true challenges I must face in uniting with the savior.

I'll be revered forever.

I'll be immortal.

I'll be a God

And all the while, i'll be sitting on This throne... This throne...

If you haven't seen this movie yet, I strongly urge you to at least rent it. I watched it last night and I thought it would be a long, drawn out moring film, but it turned out to be an exteremely touching true story which I'm sure will remain on my favorite list for quite some time.

Has anyone else seen it?

Characters, Plot, and Themes / Crono's Age?
« on: May 03, 2008, 09:09:47 pm »
During the entire game, Crono's Age isn't stated even once.

When I was playing through it on the PSX, I felt as if the developers were trying to confuse my. At the start of the game, he get's an allowance from his mother, but at the end he gets married.

I'm sure that we can state he is young, due to the fact that he still lives at home. But during cutscenes, he looks quite mature.

Also, if you take a close look at certain art for Trigger, Crono looks like a young teenager, but in other parts resembles a grown man.

Any insight?

I have an idea. Crono never talks, so let's come up with some kickass quotes for him shall we?

I'll Start.

"Tata? Who the fuck covered themselves in liquid gay and gave you that name?"

As stated above, the following has nothing to do with the Chrono series, or any video game at all.

 I really do hope I'm not the only one here who believes in the Big Bang theory, that all existence was once a tiny molecule that rapidly expanded in a moment of intense heat. My question is, hypothetically if we could travel back in time, could one alter that molecule to his or her preference?

I originally thought that this could be correct, and with the Ability of Time Travel one could alter that molecule, but recently I've discovered a few factors that  conflict with this idea.

Factor 1: By altering the molecule, you would be changing the blueprint of history and the laws of time and physics. In turn, you would be destroying yourself and everything else from utter reality. Reality wouldn't be able to exist at all.

Factor 2: If you could travel back in time, you wouldn't be traveling through space. Since your a part of That molecule which expanded to create our world (just like the rest of us), you would be finding yourself compressed to an exteremely miniscule size when you were inside of the molecule. Meaning you would either die, or fade out of existence if you somehow were pushed out of the molecule. The molecule IS all existence, I believe, so nothing exists outside of it. Nothing could exist outside of it, considering it consists of pure nothingness.

With these factors in play I believe that I could state the Idea of Altering the molecule which started all life to be pure fiction, and impossible considering the basic laws of physics.

However, I truly desire to discuss this topic and to find out anyone else's opinions. If i broke any rules with this thread, I apologize.

General Discussion / We Don't Need an FFVII Remake.
« on: April 17, 2008, 07:33:23 pm »
Alright, hear me out.

Some of my most memorable experiences were gained through playing video games, and one that should be highly noted was Squaresoft's masterpiece, Final Fantasy VII.

Lately, there hs been much buzz about the PS3 Tech Demo, and whether that will spawn a remake of FFVII.

Personally, I really think that we don't need it.

FF7 had a certain charm to it, gamers that played a lot of games during the Renessaince Period of Games ( 1996-2001) would understand this. It's hard to explain... But there was something about that time that just made games be the best that they could be. The Playstation and N64 kept cranking out games that hit the best games of all time list (Final Fantasy VII-IX, Zelda: OoT, Super Mario 64, Pokemon Red/Blue, and even Chrono Cross to name a few).

And I hope that gamers who have played through FF7 are understanding me here. There was a lot of things about the game. For example, the graphics: Sure, they suck compared to the technology of today (you can count Cloud's polygons with your hands) But it was revolutionary for that time. And it gives a certain feeling, one that kept me hooked unlike the more recent FF's. And don't forget the music, either. It's nothing fancy like the games of today, but Nobuo Uematsu's talent with a Synthesizer/Keyboard created some amazing pieces that couldn't be fully recreated with any other instruments.

Furthermore, Tetsuya Nomura and the whole Square crew have a habit these days of taking a dump in a shoebox, scribbling "Final Fantasy" on it in sharpie and selling it worldwide to make millions of dollars. I don't want to see what very well could be the greatest game of all time be recreated with high hopes, only to dissapoint the masses.

People have come up to me and said, "Hey, would you buy a PS3 to get an FF7 remake?" and when I asnwer "No." they get a shocked look on their faces, shake their heads and walk away. My reasoning is a little offbeat here, but the PS3 is just a little less expensive then buying your own private island for crying out loud! However, If I DO end up getting a PS3 in the near future, don't think I wouldn't rent a copy of the game. I just wouldn't buy it unless it surpasses the original. I don't want to waste my time on a clone
The day I spend my good money on a simple polished up rehashing is the day I swallow a piece of Razor Wire, yank it out my ass and floss myself to death.
