In other news… hang on a second, what’s this? NO HOMEGROWN HOTTIE? (Un)fortunately not I’m afraid, because today we are kicking off a brand new ION feature. Say hello to Throwback Thursdays, where we gooi some good ol’ fashioned nostalgia into your face.

Our very first feature is none other than Chrono Trigger – a legendary RPG title from Square Enix. Coming out way back in 1995, Chrono Trigger blew people’s socks right off with its implementation of time travel and tactical turn-based battles. The game consists of 13 unique endings based on the player’s actions in both the past and future. It prompted unbelievable replay value, which is likely why it is now reminisced fondly by many, and widely regarded as one of the best games Square Enix has ever made.

It has been re-released for modern devices such as the DS, and even iOS and Android, meaning you can give it a bash right this second! I myself, ashamedly, have not finished the game. It’s a punishable offense I’m sure, which is why I’m currently hiding from Geoff and Zoe while typing this. Both of them loved this game enough to feature it in their top ten lists of all-time best games.

Should I be hiding from you, too? Does this header bring back amazing memories, or are you going to just nod and pretend you know what everyone is on about?
