i've read somewhere here about relationships between Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger.

would it matter if I buy Chrono Cross without having a background on Chrono Trigger?
(or is it worth buying in the first place? :D it received 5 stars at Amazon).

It's OK not to play Chrono Trigger if you wants to play CC
but It will be better to have 'em both.

Will you buy Final Fantasy 1-8 just to find the connection before you buy Final fantasy 9?

Answer it by yourself ;)

Lemme just say that 404's FF comparison is, well, full of error. :D

As for getting CC, some of the very important plot points can be confusing and some surprises you might not understand if you haven't played CT. All you should do is get the Chrono Trigger rom (its everywhere, I won't tell exactly where ;) ) and a good emulator to work it (zsnes is the best) or the cart (if you can find it). CT is a great game, and is fun to play.

Another thing to note: some plot points are related to the B. Satellaview game Radical Dreamers for the Super Famicom, a semi-sequel to CT. It has yet to be translated, for the game is quite, well, complex, even though it's a text-based rpg. Let's hope DeJap can do the job once they're done with Star Ocean.

reminds me of Metal Gear Solid, it's the third game in the MG series....the second one, Metal Gear: Solid Snake, only appeared on MSX2. If you've played that game you have a big advantage in MGS, and you also understand some things better.

Speaking of which, what's a good MSX emulator that runs MG2? You should know. ;)

almost every MSX emu runs Metal Gear 2...
NLMSX is the best choice, fMSX-DOS will play it fine as well.

Okay, I'm confused. I thought that Metal Gear and MG2:SS were released on the original Nintendo. Is MSX anothere name for Nintendo or a different system. BTW I know people who have played both of the first two MG games on Nintendo and they couldn't have been lying to me about playing it because they don't know about emus or obscure systems like MSX, so they wouldn't have even heard about MG and MG2:SS unless they played it on Nintendo.

Sorry to be so wordy.

I wish I had played the first 2 MG games, but i did read the synopsis of the games in the MGS instruction booklet, so the MGS story made sense to me. If fact its one of my all time favorite games. I think its got the best and most complex/realistic story out of all the action games on PSX. Actually I think the MGS story is better than any other games' stories including RPGs, but I don't want to start a debate with FF and CC fans.:rolleyes:

the second metal gear game on the NES was called Snake's Revenge. It's NOT the same game as Metal Gear: Solid Snake on MSX2...the nes sequel is in fact not really a part of the metal gear series. Both games are completely different (played them both).

MSX is a homecomputer that was released in japan and europe, MSX2 was an improved version with more colors etc, but fully compatible with the first MSX.

some info about msx:

Great, thank you Samor.

one more question. Was the summary of MG2 in the MGS booklet coming from the MSX game or the Nintendo game? I guess the MSX game since you said that the Nintendo game wasn't really in the MG series, but I gotta know for sure.

Well, MG2 was released in 1989, and KoA realized that the likelihood of MG2 being released to the Famicom was slim to none (pathetic how the Americans dejected the MSX). So, KoA decided to release a game based on Metal Gear on the NES, and it became known as Snake's Revenge. It was a pathetic game, mind you. :D
