Warning: Chrono Trigger rant to follow:
I started fighting Lavos I started fighting Lavos I started fighting Lavos!! I’ve procrasted at least two years, but I started fighting Lavos!! I decided I might as well just go ahead with it and go through the Black Omen, why the hell not. But bloody hell did that take a long time. And right in the middle of the Black Omen, I stumbled upon two of the Nu. One that sold me something, and the other one confused me and sent me back to the start of the Black Omen. Stupid Nu. At least I got to level up a little a bit more. Then I had to fight Zeal, the Mammon Machine, and then buffed up Zeal. I did pretty well with that, despite Zeal’s “down to 1 HP” attack. It actually gave me the chance to use Ayla’s “Dino Tail” attack (the lower your HP, the greater the damage). It did 4,000 some-odd damage and MAN was it fun. So then, so then, Zeal summons LAVOS >.< And I was all jumpy!! Yeah, and this may sound bad: I started fighting Lavos, I didn’t really do anything more than start. If it weren’t so late, or I had a computer in my own room and the firm belief that I won’t fall asleep within a half-hour, I would totally fight him. After all, he basically just copies the attacks of all the previous bosses. So it’s at least not hard for the first half, so much as tedious. But really, first thing tomorrow (or first sign of an empty house, since I mindlessly yell) I will start fighting Lavos. But actually, now that I think about it, I quit unable to save from like, way before I fought Zeal. Damn, that means I have to fight Zeal again. Oh well. Confidence building?! I don’t know!! I think I’m really just interested to see the endings and also obtain the New Game + status. Yeah, I know this will have to be better than Seiken Densetsu 3’s ending, because there’s more than one of them, and I know from spoilers and walkthroughs that there’s more than just a white screen and a promise of new mana, which was actually the main problem in that game plot, anyway. Sigh. SD3 is still really cool, what with the plot, graphics, characterization. The ending really sucks is all. And I haven’t finished Secret of Mana, which is pretty sad. I think I come really really close to finishing most RPGs, but just don’t have the heart. Especially when I experience the white-screen, empty promise ending. Sigh. There’s some really entertaining new Engrish. Someone go check it out. I actually used it in my AIM info, which I changed for the first time in like half-a-year.
