This week, we're talking about Dragon Quest's first cousin once removed…Chrono Trigger. With the 25th anniversary of its North American release coming up in just a few days, we thought that there was no better time to talk about a game that was created by Yuji Horii and Akira Toriyama — two of the masterminds behind our favorite JRPG series.

Beej loves Chrono Trigger for a number of reasons, but Austin is a newcomer to the title, and his opinions vary. We might even get a #ChronoGate out of some of them. We discuss everything from the character designs and their importance to the world, the various and multiple endings that may or may not be worth actually playing through to get, and we even talk about the things that make it the reason we have the Dragon Quest VI that Austin loves and most other people kind of crap on. (Beej hasn't played it yet, so he can't say, but he does love the graphics and the hero design — who, unsurprisingly, looks like Crono).
