Yeah, this was back in like 1996 or probably more like 1997.

I've done everything once... except Pink Nu Spekkio.

I have fought Frog Spekkio though.




This. Pink Spekkio is brutal. (Although mine is in reference to the SNES version, not any additional content: ie DS version)

One of the new items in the DS version is an armor for Lucca that nullifies all elemental damage. Spekkio's Halation can drop her to 1 HP, but he can never finish the job due to her immunity to magic.

Seriously? Wow, I never knew this.

You have to get a Lumicite Shard by either killing or charming a Wonder Rock and take it to the smith in the 600 AD Lost Sanctum. The Wonder Rock is a rare spawn on the second screen of 600 AD Mt. Emerald and on the second screen of the "Singing Mountain" portion of the 12,000 BC Dimensional Vortex. (The linked page also lists it as being in 600 AD Millennia Wood, but I can't confirm as I've never seen it there.) It's pretty hard to kill if you're not yet at the level where Luminaire and Flare nuke everything, since the rock is fast, highly resistant to damage, and can run away. So if you're lucky enough to see one I definitely recommend equipping Ayla with the Charm Top and putting her and Marle in your party before you engage it. Even then I've had it escape on its first turn before I could Twin Charm it.

It's certainly an overpowered piece of equipment. The new content isn't as good as the original content, but I can't complain too much since it gives us new things to do in the Chrono world. Of course, those new things are only of interest if you've already done all the old things, so I always recommend that people play the original first to get the "true" experience, and then play the DS version for the bonus stuff.

Has there been anyone that has gotten some info from anyone in the Dream Team as to what was actually laid out for a possible CT2? (even if scribbled on a bar napkin or something)

I didn't know there was any, other than "i'd be down for it." just the reference in the developers room at the end with the robot asking if they wanted to see one.

After I beat Lavos traditionally for the first time, I invited my friend over that weekend and we tried to get to the Developer's Room. That's why getting there was particularly memorable for me; we spent all afternoon trying to beat Lavos with just Crono in the party.

We traded the controller around for his different phases and actually managed to beat him that night, it was really satisfying.
All the text in there was really memorable and tongue-in-cheek, it's one of my favorite easter eggs in the game.
