What to call it
« on: February 24, 2006, 02:36:30 am »
Lordchander, Luminaire, I had a look at the convo about the name. Someone suggested 'Chrono Trigger: Alpha et Omega', meaning Beginning to End'. However 'et' apparently means 'and'. But I thought, 'Alpha et Omega', even if 'et' does mean 'and', wouldnt be too bad, because then it would say 'Chrono Trigger: Beginning and End', kind of meaning Chrono Trigger being everlasting through time.
How about it?  :wink:

Hm...

*thinks for a while*

I like the idea of a time reference in the subtitle, and I see what you're saying, but I think it's a little obscure.

I prefer "To Far Away Times" for several reasons, including that it's the last song on the soundtrack.

Hmmm, im not worried either way when it comes to the name of the Flash. To Far Away Times was never my most favourite choice, but after working with it for a while it grew on me it kinda wouldnt be fair for Luminaire to have to change his Sig  :lol:

I guess at this point I'll simply say this: we're a long way from having anything to have to name. Keep thinking about it, but we've got plenty of other work to do.

Quote from: SSJoseph
Now, if it stays to much to the story it would be a little boring though.

Example: In the Black Omen, all their is to do is fight.
Their is almost no story in the Black Omen, just in the beginning, and end.

How about we insert something like Robo speaking out--flashbacks of it's past.
Or Magus thinking of his sister while in the Black Omen where he once played (or something ;) )


Yeah, the action scenes are a fairly major concern of mine. There's a limit to what we can do using sprites, and action scenes are hard to write, but Crono and co. need to do a reasonable amount of fighting because that's part of the preparation for defeating Lavos.

The first such scene will probably be Crono, Lucca, and Frog vs. Yakra.

My question is: Why are we even focusing on a name? Like Luminaire said: We dont have the time to argue about a name, I think we...no...We MUST get Episode I before we even THINK about a proper name. Episode I should have enough info in it so we can make a name from it, it's the first Episode, it HAS to look good!

Im sorry to be strict about this, but ive finally gotten sick of this no episode thing and discussing topics such as the name of it!! We need to work ppl, not discuss.
