[Let's Play] Chrono Cross - a little further than the other guy! (NSF56K)

edited November 2007 in Games and Technology
So there was a thread a month or two back where a guy started to play through CC, and it got me in the mood to play it again. Since he's apparently not going to update, and since I have an itching to try out this Let's Play thing, I'm gonna start my own thread (see if I don't!)

Ahem. So, without further ado (whatever that means)...

Let's Play Chrono Cross!

878000.jpg

Since the other guy already covered the beginning, I'll just post a few screens and we can move on to the new stuff.
917546.jpg

1094671.jpg

1102281.jpg

1105562.jpg

Serge wakes up to his mother calling, in a way that closely resembles the beginning of Chrono Trigger.

1126687.jpg

1160703.jpg

Leena is pissed because Serge slept in, and she sends him off to get some lizard scales for a necklace.

1239156.jpg

So Serge hunts down three of the rainbow-colored reptiles (doesn't seem like very good camouflage to me... so I guess we can chalk up the hunting of these things for jewelry to natural selection, right?)

1979812.jpg

1290625.jpg

One of the slower moving lizards runs for his life... but we made a promise to murder and skin the beast so that our girlfriend will stop nagging us! Sorry, buddy, nothing personal.

1454078.jpg

Big momma isn't too happy with me... but I bet you could make a hundred necklaces from that hide!

1493187.jpg

So I take big momma down but don't bother to use any piece of the corpse. Somewhere, a native american (or native el-nidian) is crying a single tear.

Now that I have single handedly finished off the last of the rainbow-colored lizard species, I must go wait for my girl to meet me on the beach and tell me how big of a man this makes me.

1679328.jpg

But instead she chats on and on about her memories and how she'll never forget some promise she made or something. I wasn't really listening.

1804312.jpg

When all of a sudden, some cosmic shit hits the fan!

1821500.jpg

Serge is going through some kind of post-traumatic stress.

1823390.jpg

What the crap is this? Strange swirly lights are swirling around me!

1834406.jpg

1838750.jpg

Serge passes out in the sand. Where the heck did that girl run off to?

1852390.jpg

I think that's where the other guy left off. So, yeah. Let's continue!

1874031.jpg

Some dude wakes me up and tells me Leena is babysitting her siblings. What the crap? Way to leave me in my time of need, bitch!

Also, where the hell did that guy get a rainbow lizard?

2053812.jpg

2068625.jpg

Leena tells me that I've been dead for 10 years, and that I couldn't possibly be Serge. Weird. Maybe this is her way of breaking it off.

She suggests I go visit my own grave. But I don't think she meant it in a threatening way. She still doesn't think that I'm Serge.

So, off to my gravesite!

2136843.jpg

2153421.jpg

2162234.jpg

So I'm a little weirded out at this point.

2179906.jpg

Then some dudes show up and tell me I'm coming with them. Screw that noise!

2193343.jpg

2196578.jpg

I seem to be a bit outnumbered. Plus, this Karsh dude looks pretty tough. Maybe I should just give up and go with them?

2200515.jpg

2207625.jpg

2210406.jpg

2224015.jpg

2248250.jpg

Hey, cool, a scantily-clad girl is coming to my rescue! Wait...

2515703.jpg

So this chick is pretty tough. With her help, I manage to route my would-be captors.

2544578.jpg

2548718.jpg

They always say they won't forget... right before they run away.

2557250.jpg

2576953.jpg

2608156.jpg

Woah, bitch, slow your roll. I got a woman, even if she thinks I've been dead for 10 years.

2621531.jpg

2630734.jpg

2644406.jpg

2673156.jpg

2693234.jpg

Okay, so I'll stop there for now.

I do plan on going pretty far in this game... I haven't played it for several years. I'd appreciate feedback on how I'm doing this and what I could do better.

Next update soon!

    Nice. I loved this game so hard(one of the few RPGS I finished upward of 10 times).
    I also LOL'd at the indian comment.

    Well as you can see I went for Leena, and when I get to Termina I'll go for Nikki.

    Is anyone interested in video footage as well as the pictures? Or does that make sense for a game like this? Maybe I'll do videos of the boss fights or something, I dunno.

    Personally, I prefer Guile over Nikki, but whatever.

    I bought this from a co worker when I was a dish washer, I should probably play it but I don't want to start until I finish either Guild Wars or FFXII or FFVIII or one of my other uncompleted ones.

    Alright, so I told Kid to take a hike, in the interest of saving my relationship with a girl who thinks I'm insane.

    Let's continue, shall we? Oh yes, we shall.

    2707234.jpg

    2714125.jpg

    2720531.jpg

    But she can leave her siblings and mom alone to wander around the continent with me? Methinks she has a motive beyond "helping" me.

    But who am I to judge? Sure, honey, you can travel around with me and that weird dog creature thing. It'll be... nice.

    2754015.jpg

    ...
    Now let's get the hell out of this place! Being the ghost of a kid that died 10 years ago and leaving with a girl and a retarded dog gives you a bad image in a small village like that. People give you that evil eye.
    2825156.jpg

    2897687.jpg

    While hiking through fossil valley, be sure to enjoy the breathtaking views, the crisp, clean air, and of course, be sure to slaughter the local wildlife for fighting experience!

    2971703.jpg

    Also, lie to the police to gain access to restricted areas.

    3215406.jpg

    This skull is awfully friendly...

    3186359.jpg

    I hope this flower isn't endangered... I don't see any more around anywhere... oh well. *pluck*

    3012781.jpg

    The majesty of the mother bird defending her young. So noble.
    Let's kill it and steal her eggs.

    3166296.jpg

    Not these fools again.

    3279250.jpg

    Ask and ye shall receive.

    3486156.jpg

    Not such a... solty dog, now, are you! He really isn't worth his solt, is he?

    Okay, sorry.

    3503343.jpg

    Finally, the big city. Now we can be lost in anonymity and no one will know that I am an abomination in this world.

    Alright, gotta run for now, I'll be back with more after this short break!

    My only complaint is that the plot becomes nigh unintelligible by the 2nd disc. (But then, that's true about every game Square's ever made)

    I think the game was more known for ALOT OF PLAYABLE CHARACTERS!!111!! and that was it.

    Don't get me wrong, it was still/is really really awesome.

    Videos would make for even more fun definitely. Been so long since I've played it, it would be cool to see it in action again.

    And we're back.
    In this episode - Drama! Jealousy! Death!
    Well, actually, nobody dies.

    It appears that I have a monopoly on bellflowers! Time to jack up prices and rake in the dough!

    3564390.jpg

    Crap. You again.

    Bitches get in line! There's plenty of Serge to go around.

    3734750.jpg

    3754109.jpg

    My first (and last) customer. At least that bitch with the cart didn't get the sale.

    Aw, shucks, I admit it - I gave him the flower for free. I can empathize with the guy - I'm dead too! And where the hell were the flowers for Serge?!

    3827906.jpg

    Beastly guest, eh?

    3968109.jpg

    Well, he seems like a swell guy!

    3996687.jpg

    Let's break into his home! I bet he's got jewels and shit that I can shower on my sort-of girlfriend.

    4014625.jpg

    Well, your lives. I'm already dead, remember?

    4090515.jpg

    4108578.jpg

    4116859.jpg

    Break in to the place, obviously! I like this guy already!

    4125187.jpg

    And so we enter.....

    4175109.jpg

    THE FOREST OF SHADOW

    I'll start making videos of boss fights and random stuff for your enjoyment.

    Sorry it's been a couple of days since my last update. I had a little trouble with my screenshot program and a lot of these pictures have a superfluous white border around them that totally breaks my h-scroll. Rather than go back and play that part over again, I'm just gonna post em anyway :/
    I've started using Gadwin Printscreen, so there will be no more trouble in the future.

    78406390.jpg

    So there's this dude, right? And he's wandering around the Shadow Forest singing to the creatures.

    78410250.jpg

    78453953.jpg

    And some of the creatures don't take so kindly to his musical stylings. So I suppose we have to bail him out.

    78588843.jpg

    But when we do, he takes off without a word of thanks. What a douche.

    11777968.jpg

    We hurl some abuse at him, and he joins our party.

    He tells us about how to lure the little diggler-looking things into the jaws of the weird looking creature that blocks our path. So we do so.

    12400734.jpg

    Enjoy your meal, little buddy, because it will be your last.

    12418765.jpg

    Same goes for you.

    12533171.jpg

    12538921.jpg

    Leena hurls some rock at the thing and it goes down.

    12571500.jpg

    14524343.jpg

    We fight with the Dragoon Dolts and a big muscular dude with a helmet who likes to stand on top of dragons.

    14550078.jpg

    14674890.jpg

    14685343.jpg

    14713343.jpg

    He turns out to be surprisingly wimpy, and goes down when we summon a prickly bush. Maybe he's allergic or something.

    14735968.jpg

    14738140.jpg

    14786890.jpg

    15109328.jpg

    15114859.jpg

    15134140.jpg

    15193984.jpg

    We lie to gain access to restricted areas again. Feeding 100 dragons is freaking impossible!

    15552687.jpg

    Key aquire'd

    15585875.jpg

    16384953.jpg

    We kill a few guards and make our way inside. Man, if a few kids can break in to this place, what would happen if an army showed up?

    16491656.jpg

    16524609.jpg

    We totally fall for their trap. Pun intended.

    16561203.jpg

    16569359.jpg

    16662703.jpg

    So we steal their clothes and hide their bodies (presumably, as they're nowhere to be found now.)

    16767250.jpg

    And we make friendly with the other guards.

    16814015.jpg

    And do undercover espionage. Biding our time until we see a moment of weakness in which to strike.

    That's where I stopped with the old printscreen program, so my next update will have none of the whtie border h-scroll breaking crap.

    Next update will be soon!

    You update far far far far more frequently than needed sometimes. Not that it's a bad thing.

    But tell me what printscreen program you're using next so I can make a Let's Play of Final Fantasy Tactics.
