I need to finish the dialogue.

How far along are Crimson Echoes or Chrono Crisis exactly? Those two always seemed like the most promising...

Don't answer that question!  I can't wait for Crimson Echoes...  Obviously, I know a little more than I should due to working on corresponding fan games (but I've kept my lips sealed on what little I know), but I think Crimson Echoes is gonna be kick ass.  It seems to have a solid plot and I trust those who are working on it (especially you, Zeality, seeing as how you strive to be the best).

I don't wanna know the release date.  I just wanna wake up one morning and find it there.  That's how it was with Prophet's Guile... and it was AWESOME.

Boo, just b/c you don't want to know doesn't mean the rest of us can't.

Preemptive Strike Crimson Echoes...  Interesting.

Besides, if we have a release date, and it gets pushed back, everyone will be like, "WFT?!?!"  Without a release date, it helps abate some of that suspense if things don't go exactly as planned...

Ah, your logic is sound.

LoZ: Twilight Princess was like that for me. :)

In my experience, those kinds of whiners don't need a specific reason, they'll find one...Whether it's the release date not being met or there being no release date at all...

Agreed, we need to FALCON PUNCH those whiners so they don't troll us ever again.

Waking up one morning to find Crimson Echoes on the Compen'jum out of nowhere would be like Christmas morning.

Or... FINDING IT ON CHRISTMAS MORNING. Best present ever.

CTDS right off the bat for X-Mas Eve Presents. I might die and then P.S.Z. will have to haul my fat ass to where my soul goes.

Just playing, P.S.Z.! :oops: :lol:

I also voted for bit of both. Direct sequels in RPGs are a bit awkward and don't always work.

Chrono Cross worked well as a pseudo-sequel to Chrono Trigger, but it left us with way too many questions.

The obvious thing to do would be to answer some of these questions in a new game. We don't need them in the main party, but it would be nice to see the whereabouts of Crono and crew.

I would like to see a story that sort of tied up loose ends not just in one, but in both, so I picked a bit of both.
I could deal with new main characters, but I kind of like the idea of starting with Serge and/or Kid.

I'd like to see "Guile" replaced with MAGIL from RD, and I'd want the Trigger characters to not just make cameos but either be playable, or at least important to the story. Maybe Guile would just start to uncover his past, and roll with the amnesiac idea according to the Time's Eclipse ending of CTDS.

For example, I'd imagine Crono being a sort of like, difficult to unlock character to play, but he'd start out totally DECKED, as a symbol of his status as the original Lavos slayer. I wish I could draw, but it was along the lines of him wearing his Rainbow Specs kind of low on his nose sort of Jin-style (From samurai champloo). Instead of just wearing the sheath on his belt, he'd fight Iaito-style, like Vergil from Devil May Cry kinda, with his Dreamseeker katana. His lightning magic could possibly be replace with holy-style magic, or light-based? I don't really know.

If the main CT cast could be played, they'd need to be really strong.

I'd like to see elements get either redone or phased out... I liked magic better.

I'd like to NOT fight Lavos again as the final boss.
