You know it. Do you want me just to draw a Picture of Serge, or do you want Karsh's hand holding a visible picture of Serge? I'd much pfrefer the first option but either one is fine; You're the project leader, so it's up to you.

Just a sketch of Serge would be fine. You can even sign it "Tact," and everyone's going to wonder whether there's a character named Tact hidden in the game somewhere...

I went with revamping the battle system. Or should I say, devamping it. I feel that the battle system in CC was a good idea, yet poorly carried out. I also would have liked to see more familiar faces. Pink talking dogs? what ever happened to just red-haired-goku?

I like that idea.


And Hmstr1hom, I found the Cross battle system to be fabulously carried out, even better than Trigger's. What didn't you like about it?

Well, I'll admit it, my brain couldn't process the battle system. I just want a simple system, like that of the original. It was just too complex for me.... :P. And, since i don't wanna bother with tutorials, I pretty much.......suck.

I actually played CC before CT, I had a really hard time adjusting to CT's battle system.

Other - I'd make sure everyone got a dual tech with everyone else, and maybe throw in a few more triples too.

My first play through of CC was a mixture of disappointment and awe.  The disappointment being that the cast of Chrono Trigger hardly made an appearance throughout the game.  It didn't quite feel like a sequel. 

Another aspect I would change is Harle.  I absolutely HATED how she left your party, and pretty much disappeared from the face of the earth after the defeat of the dragon god.  She was my favorite character. :(

The frst time I saw screenshots of Chrono Trigger, I thought it would have a real time battle system similar to Mana or Star Ocean.

I was so sad in Chrono Cross, though, to find out that my favorite Trigger character gave his life to become one with Chronopolis and help the planet. *Sigh*

You can get her back before Terra Tower via New Game+ if you want. She's also got some of the only GOOD New Game+ endings. She's one of my favorites because they actually tried to develop her character some...not quite Kid class, but she was a close second.

Robo.  He combines with Chronoplis and Fate.   And when you kill Fate, you kill Robo.  It took me a while to catch that too.

Before I played CT I thought that battle was so cool.  I don't like it anymore.  The music is cool though.  Wait, at the end of the game everything is pretty much back to normal.  So shouldn't he technically still be alive at the end?

Bleh, that was just a Prometheus chip/program/whatever...That doesn't mean Robo is dead/gone/whatever. He could have just uploaded his consciousness (ala Belthasar's Nu) into the Mother Brain or something as a failsafe...

Model R-66Y; "Robo the Robot"

Born: 2300 A.D.

Died: 1020 A.D. (DON'T ASK HOW DEAR FUCKING GOD PLEASE)

What came from the Geno Dome shall return to the Geno Dome...



That would be Robo's Tombstone... May that metallic british-accented bastard rest in peace...

Wait, did anyone else always regard Robo with a british accent? To me it's the only voice that would fit 'im.
