The battle system for the Mother ("Earthbound") series is basic RPG (I would almost go so far as to say stolen from DQ, lol)...plus it has the AWESOME instant win easy battles feature which I still say should have been in EVERY RPG SINCE!!! I don't even think ANY other RPG has used that, which is sad...

Imagine the insta-win on CT new game plus.

He'd feel much better when he got to do it to everyone else.

How is it a good reason? That only happened in NG+...and it's only activated when it would only take one round to beat something, so you aren't missing out on a battle, you're missing out on clicking 3 times (or less)...That sounds like a good reason to have it to me!

Well, for in-game I meant. A battle being all set-up, only to be skipped completely.

Yay Portal! I can't wait to experience the monolith of passive-aggressiveness that is GlaDOS again.

I am dreading March because Dragon Age 2 will, inevitably, consume my entire freaking life for awhile.

I'm looking forward to Portal 2.  Or rather I would be if my stupid 5 year old computer could run it! >:(

I just wanna save up enough spare change to nab myself a copy of Dragon Quest VI for my DS. I love that series.

Hey guys, anyone heard of this yet?

http://www.americanart.si.edu/exhibitions/archive/2012/games/

A videogame art exhibition, and there is a chance for voting which games will be present there. It looks you need to be registered there in order to vote and see the options, so I don't know if either of the Chrono games were nominated.

But I'd say we must not let this chance go by! :o

What do you guys think?
