The GWJ JRPG Club - Q4 2020 - Chrono Trigger!

Yeah, at the end I kind of just settled on Lucca, Ayla, and Chrono team, with Lucca spamming Flare and Ayla + Chrono using either Falcon Cut for multiple enemies or Thunder Bite for single enemies. That seemed to be optimal damage output for that team, and Thunder Bite had really low MP costs so I could throw my Prism Specs on Ayla to boost her damage.

Upon further review, the future has agreed to change!

I was racing along in October until I

, and then I... stopped. The shift to open world mode brought on complete decision paralysis, so I put it down for two months. But I picked it up again last week! Crono, Marle, and Ayla took on Lavos in the final battle.

It's interesting how I remember some details but not others. I was scratching my head for a while, wondering what was supposed to trigger Marle's reconciliation with her father and reveal the imposter (who was not subtle about it; come on guys you really missed some signs there).

Just rolled credits on this. Only the third time I have actually finished a game club game. I always forget how much I love this game until I play it again. One of my favorite games.

Congratulations to both of you! Leveling you up now.

I also just squeaked across the finish line on this one. I ended up with Robo, Magus, and Frog as my ending party, mostly Robo and Magus were the last ones who still had skills to unlock, and I just stuck with them for the entirety of the Black Omen and beyond. I'm pretty sure when I played this back in the olde dayse, I was a die-hard fan of the Crono, Marle, Lucca party, so this was refreshing.

On to DQXI! (after Cyberpunk 2077)
