I wonder if this post can go live without spawning a violent argument in the comments section in which everyone has kneejerk reactions about how Chrono Cross is either brilliant or garbage? Probably not, but I suppose it’s inevitable. After all, the entire point of this article is that Chrono Cross is a deeply divisive game that rarely provokes a merely lukewarm response from gamers. So it is written, so it shall be.
ALSO: I have just received an email from Blurb informing me that the coupon code FESTIVE is good for free flat-rate shipping through December 10. (That’s for US dollar purchases. Add a 1 to the end for GBP, a 2 for Euros, or a 3 for Canadian dollars.) I know you guys like the deals, so I will post news of these codes as they arrive, per your requests.
ALSO ALSO: The bonus book for site subscribers is lagging a bit behind, partially because “vacation time” for me these days means “time in which I am not allowed to work on my own projects”… but also because this book has turned out to be, essentially, a quarter-length solo-author edition of GameSpite Quarterly. I think the results will be good enough to merit a few weeks’ delay, though. Expect to see that in your mail box early in the new year.
I really do appreciate everyone who helps support the site each month. Running GameSpite costs about $2000 per year, and your continued help allows me to keep the site and resource-hungry forums alive without plastering the place with ads. It’s so nice to have an ad-free place to read about games, don’t you think?
