    nervousness intensifies

    "We touched Chrono Cross' music" did throw a few red flags for me.

    Meh, another lazy port. I'll get this if they'll ever decide to patch the game to have consistent fps.

    I caved and bought it and am playing through it anyways. Been way too long and wanted the nostalgia.

    I do hope they fix the frame rate issues though. I can get used to it, but I can totally understand people being turned off by it.

    How the fuck am I just now learning of this ??
    Chrono Cross was probably one of my favorite games back in the day. And I have literally no time this month to play due to plans every weekend.

    I could use a nostalgia bomb.

    I saw people complaining about both Switch and PS versions. Haven't seen any PC experiences yes, but I don't expect anything different, it doesn't look like they even tried to improve it in any way.

    It's more than likely an old PS1 coding issue than anything specific to Switch versus PS4

    Forced in a shitty 4:3, or a very stretched disgusting image, pr zooming in and cutting off what you can see in 4:3 lmao. They did a really shitty job with this port, how anything is struggling with a ps1 title is nothing short of impressive that they managed to fumble that badly.

    So hearing rumors that there is a small bit of new story info if you beat both Radical Dreamers and Chrono Cross in the remaster... Not sure what it is yet, but apparently confirms something about a character that everyone already theorized.

    Would make sense, considering a similar slice of story content added in at the end of CTDS.

    I played a fan translation of Radical Dreamers more than a decade ago, so I already knew that.

    You filthy casuals.

    Gil absolutely. But tying all 3 characters together in Cross with new material would be interesting.

    I mean the game is a $20 port from SE. I'm not surprised at all it's lazy but at the same time, I would love to see a Chrono sequel so I scooped it up.
