Hello this is Katrinonus and welcome to Let's Play Chrono Trigger [BLIND]

chrono_trigger1.jpg

This is my second LP for Penny Arcade and I know it's been a while but here we are. I know you have had several of this game come and die, but I can assure you that I fully intend to finish the game. Now, I have never played this game and haven't heard that much about it, so as tradition states this is a blind run. So, let's try and avoid spoilers but feel free to make suggestions and help out along the way.

A Bit About Chrono Trigger

Chrono Trigger is a console role-playing game developed and published by Square(now Square Enix) for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1995. The game's story follows a group of adventurers who travel through time to prevent a global catastrophe
. Thanks again Wiki.

The original names were what we all decided to go with, so they will stay the same!

Hope you guys enjoy it!

    Right.

    They should be called:

    Bandersnatch
    Mome Rath
    and
    Tove

    Obviously Crono should be "Klyka".

    The only suggestion I have at the moment is name Crono "Dude" so everyone talks like a surfer.

    You should name them all after characters from Chuck, or failing that, another TV show.

    So
    Crono = Chuck
    Lucca = Ellie
    Marle = Sarah

    Not so certain about the rest, but this seems like a solid plan. Doesn't have to be Chuck; as long as it's a TV show I know I'll be okay with it. Or like, name them after the Justice League or something.

    EDIT: Also, others have tried to LP this game and have broken my spirit. I can't be certain I'll follow this one closely at first until I have evidence of your stamina; I've had my heart broken twice too many times.

    What else have you LPed?

    So I have been told. I have heard about this LP getting abandoned several times. Poor Chrono Trigger and I understand. I have only LPed Rule of Rose for PA but I've done several outside that on YouTube, but I'm going to finish it. Never you worry. If anything, I have to finish it for myself, so why not take some others on board for the ride.

    In that vein, how about

    Crono = House
    Marle = Cuddy
    Lucca = Chase

    House is lame. (pun intended)

    Name them after Star Wars characters then.

    Lucca would be C-3PO.

    You're part of the reason I finished Rule of Rose.


    That evil, evil game. (Did you ever figure out the ending? I had to do a lot of FAQ reading for that.)


    Keep their names.

    There's a certain Catch-22 here, as no one will watch until it is done so they don't get their heart broken, but lack of views will certainly make a dead LP more likely. Like ignoring a show until after it has finished airing, then catching it on DVD and cursing the networks.

    Anyway, good luck.

    Robo
    ?

    How could you not name him R2-D2 in a Star Wars themed playthrough?

    Also I think the OP says avoid spoilers.

    I'm honestly jealous. I wish I could play Chrono Trigger for the first time again... It would be worth the risk of brain tumors and vegetative state to have a machine that would wipe that part of my memory just so I could.

    I'm considering playing the game just through the power of suggestion. I don't think the game is the OMG GREATEST EVER, but it's good. It's been a few years since I've had a go at it.

    The game is riddled with a LOT of shit in regard to doing a 100% run. Not just sidequest wise (which there's plenty of, and this game hit it most right in that regard), but there's some specific item grabs involving time traveling. I'd say more, but spoilers and such.

    Enjoy running around in the game blindly. ;D

    I'm also voting for sticking with the original names if it is your first time through the game.

    Character names should be the originals yeah. But if you must change them, change 'em to forumer names (as abbreviated as you can with 5 character limit).

    Klyka seems to be a shoe-in, if only for his vouching of this. The question is what character.

    He made one of the best LPs I've ever seen, mixing a lot of knowledge about the game, a good sense of humour, and a fantastic French Canadian accent into pure bliss.

    Then he quit :(

    Don't worry. Hell would kill me if I didn't finish this for one and for another I hate it when LPs are just up and abandoned. I don't intend to start a track record of abandonment.
