Hello ladies and gentlemen. I apologize for the delay in starting the game club as several unexpected and unavoidable real life events took precedent. But after your voting, the winner is in, and it’s Chrono Trigger.
We will officially start our first ever Cloudburst Video Game Club with the Square classic Chrono Trigger. It is the story of a young boy and his friends who must traverse the past present and future to save the planet. We will be playing as the official group play over the course of the next month (Tuesday May 28th through Friday June 28th; again, I apologize for the delay) during which time we will discuss tips, tricks, strategies and general impressions of the game.
The game itself has been released on multiple formats, namely the SNES, Wii Virtual Console, Nintendo DS, PS1, PlayStation Network, iOS, and Android platforms. And any version is welcome as the first thing I would like to discuss is the changes between the releases. Some re-releases, like on the Virtual Console, are an exact replica of the original SNES release, but other version have some difference such as…
The PS1 release was the first major re-release of the game, adding in new anime cut scenes done by character designer Akira Toriyama of Dragon Ball fame. The DS version added new content in the forms of extra end game dungeons that provided new items, weapons, and armor in addition to a monster breeding/battle game.
So which ever version you choose to play with us is perfectly fine as I would love to hear the discussion on if the added content is beneficial, or if the original version is more true to concept. So let’s get playing and head on over to the forums to start talking.
