This week on Retro Reset, we're finally BACK with part 1 of our DOUBLE SIZE Chrono Trigger extravaganza! We're hopping in the epoch and going all the way back to 1995 to explore the development and history of one of the greatest RPGs of all time, and one of the greatest games ever made. Turn on your SNES and get ready to RESET.

Other topics discussed:

- POGS and Beanie Babies

- How Waterworld made so much money and still technically flopped

- Chrono Cross and the change from cartridges to discs

- Another spiky-haired protagonist from Secret of Mana
