Well, tonight's session with Chrono Cross was the very first time in about 30 hours of gameplay that I had genuine fun the entire time. All I've wanted this entire game is one character who (a) is remotely likable, (b) is actually worth using in battle, (c) has at least a minimally appealing visual design, and (d) has a legitimate reason for being a part of this quest. I've gone through DOZENS of characters, and tonight is the first time I've come across anyone who actually meets all four qualifications. And for reference, only three of the other characters so far have even come close.

I have issues with absolutely every aspect of the game, but by far my biggest issue is that I don't care about ANYTHING that's going on. I'm indifferent toward or outright dislike almost all of the heroes, and the few I've willingly had in my party have no stake in the success of the mission. They're only in my party out of gratitude for rescuing them or because they have some broad, nebulous goal that might get achieved along the way somehow. It's incredibly difficult to get invested in the story when the characters themselves are barely invested.

At least in Chrono Trigger, the silent protagonist demonstrates some heroic initiative in his nonverbal actions, and the very first conflict of the game sets off a chain of events that lead directly to the end of the game. Here, Serge is a soulless puppet who just does stuff because he's got nothing better to do. There's neither a sense of urgency nor a sense of direction driving me forward. I even feel bad about fighting a lot of the enemies and bosses, because most of them aren't even villainous or threatening—they're just blocking my path to the next plot point.

And the combat is my second biggest issue with the game—all that micromanagement gives the illusion of robust complexity, but after 30 hours of combat, I've survived every battle with the same formula: attack a bunch; cast a spell that hits everything; repeat, healing as needed. I've found little value in the support spells (half of them can't even hit their target reliably), and I have yet to encounter a fight where it's worth the effort to manage the color grid beyond "don't use the same color the enemy is using."

That's only scratching the surface. If it didn't have "Chrono" in the title, I would've stopped playing at least five times over by now.

I have not! But "gruesome" and "detective" typically aren't descriptors I go for in my games. However, I am a sucker for sci-fi and adventure games, and I've been known to play or watch things just because a celebrity I like is involved, so there's a chance I might give it a look eventually.

So very true. Oh and that is true was well. After playing it some more, I think I can say that Yooka-Laylee is not Banjo-Kazooie (shocking, right?), but it seems to do its own thing at times. Everything seems to be spread out and some things are hard to find. Rextro’s first arcade game, Kartos Karting, was borderline dreadful and I hope the other retro minigames are better. I need to play it more, but I’m still messing around in the first level.

It sure does. As for Yooka-Laylee, I still have not got around to playing it yet. Between work and setting everything up, I have not played much of anything over the past couple of weeks, aside from Link’s Awakening here and there. I got the majority of the house sat up, I’m just working on the office/videogame room and the guest bedroom. Unfortunately, that also means no new updates, but I will defiantly let you know my thoughts.
