I didn’t have a SNES, nor a N64; so during those lean days I passed my time by using emulators. I’ve played a lot of the SNES RPGs and my favorite one of all was Chrono Trigger. The story was great and it was the first time I saw the newgame+ idea. This enabled me to try and max out my characters (although I got bored of it before then) without having to grind the same dungeons over and over again. It was like watching a movie again and again.

Now, Chrono Trigger has finally been ported to DS. It took long enough; the technical capability was all there from day one. I’ll play through it and see how it stands to time (and memory). Unfortunately, I don’t think I will be able to spend the time to max out my characters anymore.
