    Well, it does take forever. But the enemies are not nearly as high-level as the DV enemies and bosses.

    I didn't do it until after finishing the game with a party in the 50's. I went through there like a hot knife through butter.

    Lost Sanctum is annoying for three reasons.

    1. You go up that mountain so, so, so many times.

    2. It will do one of two things to your levels. It will either be kinda/sorta but not really challenging when attempted first off, and give you some decent upgrades, but will make the rest of the sidequests easy. Or it will do jack crap. It however does have JUST enough TP availible to fully max out every character in one game, provided you do it before the black omen, which will probably do it for you if you choose to skip it.

    3. Its not half as good as the other, way more fun new optional dungeon.

    It's a lot like a longer version of the first optinal dungeon in FF IV advance, only that one was short. It fills in some equipment holes and gives you some levels you may or may not want.

    So, what do I have to do for the new ending? Complete the Lost Sanctum side quests?

    Because if so, that's the only way I'll consider seeing this through. You all weren't kidding.

    I already finished the three Dimensional Vortexes.

    Final final ending get.

    Crono/Magus/Lucca at mid 50s. Dream Devourer got slaughtered.

    As for the new ending itself... O_o

    Guardia gets destroyed in 1005 AD? News to me...

    I'm so replaying Chrono Cross once I finish Shadow Hearts 3.

    13/13 endings, woo.

    Of course, I did it way sub-optimally (2 New Game+'s). Ah well.

    Now the problem is the items and the bestiary. Ugh.

    (I'm usually not a completionist, but I'm making an exception just for CT.)

    I recall Black Omen having some good lvling stuff, though I think the new dungeon may have better areas. Not too sure actually.

    I should clarify- playing Chrono Trigger doesn't help you understand Chrono Cross either.
    Nothing helps you understand Chrono Cross. Once you put time travel and alternate dimensions in the same place all bets are off.

    You poor bastard.

    I'd say you can go ahead and play Chrono Cross as a standalone with the caveat that its very much a "Love-it-or-hate-it" sort of game. The soundtrack is rapturous either way.

    Then go buy a DS.

    Now that I think about it, you can get through Almost all of Disc 1 of Chrono Cross without playing CT. You'll be hopelessly lost by the time disc 2 rolls around, though.

    If you can play CC you can also get the PS1 version of CT for the PS1 as well. Both are available new on Amazon. Without a DS you're missing out on a lot more than CT, though...

    Also, I just bought CC on Amazon the other day. I haven't played it before, and I hadn't really wanted to, but for some reason I want to give it a shot now.

    It's the same game! How is it bastardized? Other than the load times. Those're annoying, yes, but they aren't that bad.

    Then again, I do own all three US releases of the game. Perhaps I'm just a fanboy.

    That's the only PSX version (in the US?), so yeah. Again, the only problem is rather annoying load times. If you're prepared to deal with that then by all means go for it.

    By 'annoying load times' you mean 'bring a novel.'
    If it was only on changing locations that'd be one thing.
    But...

    > Press Triangle!

    ---Veeet! Whirrrrrrrrr---

    > The menu opens!

    Every time! Every time!

    But this here is the kicker -- Chrono Trigger is friggin' worth it. I beat it twice on the SNES, once on the PS1 and have gotten nearly every ending on the DS. No regrets.

    What I'm saying is- go play some Chrono Trigger.

    I got all the endings on the PSX, and a memory card with a save before each one. Just enough room on one, and man alive were PSX memory cards cheap back when that game came out. I got a three pack for $5.

    DS version pretty much makes it useless. No loads, better music, better translation, same okish anime FMV.

    The only FMV I liked was Chrono facing off against Lavos at the Underwater Palace.

    It even had Janus.

    Nope! I had to buy two off Amazon marketplace before I got one that worked.

    FWIW, I have a PS2 - if you turn on "fast" mode for PS1 games it does improve the load times a little. But yeah, CT on the PS is not an optimal gaming experience.
