I am enjoying it. There was a bit of a learning curve since the battle system is not standard turn based (i.e. Final Fantasy), instead it is card based.
Since I have never played a trading card based game like Magic, Pokemon, or any of those other ones this made it more fun because I had to learn a new type of game.

Ha, yeah... Although that aspect of the game never bothered me as much as it probably should have for some reason. I mean it's grating when Celine's constantly spamming "Ray! Ray! Ray! Ray!", but for the most part it's not too distracting. The particularly bad samples are more amusing than obnoxious I guess. That's part of the charm behind Typing of the Dead, too, actually.

As for Earthbound vs Chrono Cross... I'm going to vote for Earthbound by default even though I never played it. I did play through Chrono Cross and hated it--I don't think I ever hated a game until Chrono Cross, actually. A lot of that hate is probably unjustified, though, as I had just come off Planescape: Torment which had left me struggling to reconcile what I really wanted from an RPG.

I'm probably one of the last people you should listen to for JRPG advice nowadays, come to think of it. :lol:


You sure its not chrono trigger? cross was for the psx

Well the question as glynnahab phrased it was "Chrono Cross or Earthbound?"

'course if they meant Trigger, I'd vote for that instead. It's hard to not like Chrono Trigger even today since the game managed to successfully break some of the more-annoying JRPG conventions. Factor in how well put together the rest of the game is and you're left with one of the best RPGs for the SNES.

But I still think they really were talking about Chrono Cross since, on a retro gaming board, who hasn't already played Chrono Trigger?

Yeah it was Chrono Cross I was talking about. I replayed Chrono Trigger recently, and it sparked a curiosity in me about Cross. I've heard almost only positive reviews of the game, but Earthbound seems to have its own flavor. I've sampled each game for about 5-10 minutes, but right now I'm in the middle of replaying FF7 and I prefer to play only one RPG at a time. (Maybe I should just play these games instead of RE-playing every old RPG that I loved back in the day. I could probably finish both games within the time it would take me to finish FF7.)

I'm still on the fence with it right now, but you guys have provided some insightful opinions. It might come down to a coin flip. :D

I'm playing Lunar: SSS. Sega CD version. I'm almost finished with it. Not sure what I'll start after it, I have quite a backlog.

I am well into Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and Panzer Dragoon Saga. It's hard to make progress on the games as I often don't have hours to devote solely to game play. Well, that and I easily get distracted in quite a number of other games, I'm trying to finish Silent Hill 4 and I just finished Snatcher and I recently just started Okami, Headhunter and Seaman.

Yes, I start too many things at once!
