The Middle Ages – Chrono Trigger Ep. 2

Welcome back to Save File Plays Chrono Trigger! Last episode, we met our protagonist, Crono, briefly before he was roped into a world of bullshit because of his best friend, and the chick he was macking on. Then he began to play with portals, which will never end well. Where will he end up? It’s time to find out!

MUSIC: Mystery of the Forest


: Ugh… I don’t think I”ll ever get used to that. Not that I want to. Wait, what’s that? State 0 loaded? WHO USES SAVE STATES? Get that weak shit outta here!



: Oh, okay, I see how it is. You wanna throw down? I’ll throw down!

Technology is Weird – Chrono Trigger Ep. 1

Ah, yes. Welcome to the next installment of Screenshot Let’s Plays on Save File. I recently just finished Final Fantasy VII. And now… due to a vote, I am moving onto yet another classic, hailed by many as the greatest RPG ever… Chrono Trigger. A game that always comes up in discussion of greatest SNES game, Greatest RPG, and sometimed even greatest game in general.

A game of adventure, mystery, and time travel done well (if not right), it’s easy to see why people fell in love with Chrono Trigger. It’s also easy to see why people were so disappointed with its “sequel,” Chrono Cross. But that’s a story for another day. I can’t sing this game’s praises enough, but please keep in mind that I will be altering some of the dialogue for humor’s sake. Or at least, what I perceive as humor. Hopefully you will as well. There’s nothing much to say except to just hop into it! This game is a stone cold CLASSIC.

MUSIC: A Premonition


Aw, man. Just the title screen gives me chills. The game does not play in widescreen, though my capture program does. So rather than editing every screencap, I figured Crono and Marle make worthy additions to the pictures.


And yes, we will be sticking to default names for this playthrough. They’re just too iconic not to do so.

MUSIC: Morning Sunlight


We fade in on an idyllic scene in the Kingdom of Guardia.


JESUS CHRIST, THE TOWN SQUARE IS EXPLODING!


Oh, there are balloons. I guess it’s a celebration of some sort.

Biron Monastery – Legend of Legaia Ep. 7

Welcome back to Legend of Legaia!  When last we left off, we made a quick stop off back in Rim Elm.  We got our asses kicked by some bees, and I think we pissed Mei off.

…needless to say, I think we’ve overstayed our welcome, so let’s mosey, shall we?

Ep. 7.mp4_20150529_212533.515
Getting to Biron Monastery from Rim Elm is very easy now that we’ve closed the water gate.  There’s no need to stop off at Drake Castle, we can just head straight on through the river bed.

Ep. 7.mp4_20150529_212541.075
Once we move far enough North, we quickly start to encounter the Mist again.  You can kind of see a gap in the mountains up ahead. What happens if we try to check it out?

Squeenix, You’ve Pulled Me Back In.

Despite being a pretty avid gamer, though admittedly less so as I get older, I usually don’t pay all too much attention to E3. At this point, you can kind of assume what you’re going to get. A lot of sequels. But the most important news to me (personally) was that they are remaking Final Fantasy VII.  There are a lot of other games that look great, and I’ll probably talk about them eventually, but this is the friggin’ elephant in the room.

Finally.

Final Fantasy VII is being completely redone for the Playstation 4.

And I

am

TERRIFIED.
