Chrono Trigger: Great RPG? Or the greatest RPG?

See the doodles!

Part 50: Our final stream begins with special guest star Potatedude aka Rockman joining us to see a robot fight his girlfriend and gay mother.

Part 51: We ignore the domestic abuse problem in the town of Choras in order to fix up a mansion so Frog can get some closure from his mentor buried under the rug.

Part 52: We finish up our massive medieval construction project and with it the last of the endgame sidequests. Time to take on the rotting pizza slice known as the Black Omen!

Part 53: Heading deeper into the Black Omen, we find goons. Hired Goons. Since most of this video is just fighting (and cool graphics), we pass the time discussing X-Men, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Donald Trump, New Game Plus, SomethingAwful, Secret of Mana, ice cream, and more! The Player is a harsh mistress.

You can mess with Texas if you want to. I’m not your dad.

Part 54: Gato’s evil clones make an appearance, and the never-ending ambiguously-gendered statue argument rages on!

Part 55: We finally reach the end of the Black Omen as Magus continues to suck, and Queen Zeal tires of us talking about Final Fantasy and tries to kill us. It’s LaVOSa, not LavoSA!

Part 56: Lady Gaga gives the party halitosis. Then we tackle the Lavos Boss Carriage Ride, which exists solely for padding. Vote Magus! He’ll make Guardia great again! He’ll build a wall and make Porre pay for it!

Part 57: The party uses Gaspar’s chamber pot to engage in The Final Battle! Followed by the Final Final Battle! And we speculate on the eternal debate: is Lavos truly evil, or simply a beast who’s just acting according to instinct?

Part 58: The Epilogue of Chrono Trigger! Or, as the Doodler would say: The EEEpilogue!

Part 59: Turns out we had a *lot* more to say about Chrono Trigger (and JRPGs), so we split it off into this bonus podcast/episode.

Part 43, featuring The Player’s niece: Time-Traveling 12-Year-Old Lucca! Also, Magus kills off a trio of rock legends!

Part 44: Krang’s robot suit has seen better days. Also, ramen hatred.

Part 45: After Lucca goes back in time to try to save her mother’s legs, The Player goes back in time because he screwed up the sequence!

Part 46: Giving jerky to the mayor somehow inadvertently kills everyone in the sequel (spoilers?). But at least Lucca gets a better gun.

Is the statue a man or a woman? Vote now!

Part 47: Pouring soda pop on some guy’s grave leads to underground dinosaurs. It doesn’t make much more sense in context.

Part 48, featuring a trial that really makes no sense. Law and Order this ain’t. At least a princess jumps through a stained-glass window.

Part 49: Where do robots come from? You’ll probably have to wait a few months to find out. Or go play the game yourself or something.

Part 36: While Crono braves the threats in the Ocean Palace, the Player braves an even greater threat: Weirdo the hand puppet frog!

Part 37: More Ocean Palace madness as we fight genies and…English dog spirits or something…that look exactly the same. Also, GolemTwins!

Part 38: Probably the best part of the game. Two nerds are talking over it.

Part 39: Shortly after the best part of the game, we get kidnapped by the comic relief villain. That’s just great.

Part 40: We get a flying conversion done to our time machine in 2015 by Goldie Wilson III. Also, a surprise party member joins! Thankfully, it’s not Weirdo the hand puppet!

Part 41: Let’s go visit Crono’s Mom! That won’t be awkward!

Part 42: aka The Part That Makes People Compare Chrono Trigger To Christianity, But With More Robots.

Part 27: Good Nus! We’ve found the magical kingdom of Zeal! Bad Nus! We have to fight some Nus.

Part 28: I really, really, apologize for the voice we gave Princess Schala. It will eventually go away, I promise.

Part 29: Our heroes get kicked out of the Magical Land of Exposition, probably for making fun of it too much. Lavos lavos lavos.

Part 30: Our time machine receives probably the stupidest name ever.

Part 31: This part is mostly sidequests and teenage angst, the two pillars of all JRPG’s.

Part 32: Miscellaneous item collection leads us to discuss the time travel theories that the Internet has come up with to explain how Chrono Trigger ticks. Uh, no pun intended.

Part 33: Parking in the future is terrible. You have to traverse an entire hemisphere just to get back to your spot. Also, whose idea was it to cram the entire earthbound population of 12,000 BC into dirt caves that are literally next door to ravenous killer beasts?

Part 34: Rubble rubble! We’re heading up Mt. Woe!

Part 35: A boss fight against Giga Gaia leads into the first part of a multi-part rant about why Schala is, in fact, a terrible person. At least her voice gets better.

Part 19: We witness Frog’s backstory, and somehow it ends up involving Kurt Cobain?!?

Part 20: We enter Magus’s Castle, where we are told we have to defeat all 100 enemies inside! Guess how long it takes before we lose track?

Part 21: Magus’s henchmen Slash and Flea try to slow us down. One is a blue man who sounds like a tough black dude, the other is a transvestite evil magician. Progressive?

Part 22: The Outlaw and the Juggler, this fall on NBC!

Part 23: If we defeat Magus and his space triangle powers, surely that will solve the apocalypse, right?

Part 24: Who wants to debate philosophy with a cavewoman? Nobody? How about fighting T-Rexes? With rock organ music? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Part 25: Nizbel II (Electric Boogaloo) turns out to be the hardest boss fight in the game thus far. Why are you so useless, Lucca?!?

Part 26: We may be fighting a giant fire-breathing T-Rex and a telekinetic lizard woman, but at least this time we brought a mass healer along. Also, the best ending to a rap ever.
