Are You Getting Chrono Trigger DS?
« on: November 17, 2008, 08:29:59 pm »
So what are your plans concerning Chrono Trigger DS?

I just pre-ordered mine today at GameStop.  Daggum, here in Alabama the game costs over $40.00 with tax.  But that's okay; it will be worth it!

And I should note that I am buying a DS just for Chrono Trigger DS - but I should note that I have been wanting one for a while, so this is my excuse for finally caving in and finally buying one.

Aye, $40 is a bit much, but chances are that I'll get it. I might take a while, but I wholly intend to get my hands on this game.

Just a reminder, guys...

Please buy it.  If we can prove that there is an audience for the Chronoverse, it greatly enhances our chances at getting another game!  I know it's a pricey price tag, but isn't the payoff worth it?

I want to pre-order it, but I probably won't. How much extra does that usually cost?...can you do that on the phone? I don't want to have to go there and then go there again to pick it up...Either way, I'm thinking I'm gonna get it...I have the cart & the PSX version...GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL!! >_>

It usually doesn't cost anything extra - you just have to make a down payment to preorder it.  I did mine at Gamestop and they only required me to put $5.00.  I just went ahead and paid for it, though, so that's an option, too.  That way all I have to do is pick it up.

Yeah, and you can also pre-order it off the CTDS site.

But Boo is certainly right: buying this game shows that the Chrono fan base isn't dead, and that's a message Square needs to hear. And if anything's gonna open their eyes, it'll be a crisp dollar.

Got it pre ordered the day I heard about it. I swear that was the fastest i've ever run in my whole life, 3 miles in under 5 minutes. I wound up being very sick and at my toilet for about an hour later on. :lol:
But in all seriousness, I'm curious who would join these forums, the Chrono Compendium and say you never plan on ever getting it. No hatred will come(unless it's a reason like "It's just a stupid remake with DS controls!") But yeah, is anyone actually going to say that? I really have to wonder...

That would be my sister.  She's never played Chrono and doesn't understand one bit why I'm getting CTDS when we have the PS1 version.  She's not a hardcore video gamer.

Well then I guess it's good she's not on these forums because I have a minister, a pitchfork, a torch, an Epoch ready to go to Salem and I've been practicing on my yelling. :lol:

But yeah, doesn't sound like she knows her stuff on the new Chrono Trigger. I know someone I know didn't understand why I felt the need to be first in line the second the doors opened. I'm missing school/work(not saying which cause of identity and all)just to pick this up. I'd like to meet the person with the stuff to stand in my way. :twisted:

Well I can see where your sister is coming from. In most cases buy a game you already own is just a waste of money. In the case of CT:DS it is coming with new content, new tranlstion in a few points, etc. even then I might or might not get if I had an older copy, but all I own is the rom so I am buying it.

I am purchasing CT:DS, but lack an actual DS. Silly FW.

It is the second item on my four item-long Christmas list. The first is a DS. I want this game SO BAD. I will CRY if I don't get it. The system and the game are the only things I really want.
