On Stanfield, AZ: I grew up in that area, and if you ever somehow find yourself out there, which involves getting about ten miles off of both I-8 and I-10, let me just advise you to drive through the town on AZ Highway 84 with your windows rolled up and your vents closed.  The closest analogue I might suggest is the stockyards west of Amarillo.

Oh, I know Amarillo, nuff said!

Well I'm disappointed that Tetris didn't make it, but I can't complain about making up your own rules.  It's your podcast, and I certainly do stuff like that for mine!  So who would win in the finals?  Well, both games have pluck.  And both games have been re-released lately.  And both games hold special places in my heart as games I got to review for The Dallas Morning News.  But like how Mario Odyssey got my vote against Chrono Cross before, the same goes here.  Chrono Cross does not have a cereal based on it.  Chex Quest IS a cereal.  So Chex Quest wins.

Here's a topic for you.  If Chrono Cross DID have a cereal, what would it be like?  I think it would have two bags in it, like how Nintendo Cereal System and Nerds Cereal did.  Each cereal in the box would be like either versions of the world, like in Chrono Cross.  One cereal would be super nutritious and give you super strength when you ate it, and the other would have so much sugar in it you'd gain ten pounds every bite!  

Hey Julian, I know you like Final Fantasy, so I'd like to encourage you to read my latest blog when you get a chance!  And don't forget to listen to my podcast, too!  --Cary

Cage Match:

Currently, the finals are on hold pending an investigation. Besides the interference from Quest 64, there are also questions about whether Quest 64 was taking performance enhancing drugs. Quest 64 is the game that got a one-punch KO from Glass Joe. Quest 64 once lost a battle against those squirrel monsters on the deserted island in Final Fantasy VI that automatically die five seconds after the battle starts. Quest 64 once got its lunch money stolen by Lester the Unlikely. In light of these facts, an investigation is being conducted, and Congress is discussing holding hearings.  This is one of the worst scandals since Vince McMahon's 1994 doping scandal. Comparisons are even being drawn to the 1919 Black Sox Scandal. 

Chrono Cross, having showered for two solid days after its mini-vacation near the Stanfield Stockyards, demands answers, and is joined in this endeavor by Tetris and its former rival, Mario. 

When confronted by reporters from The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, and the Norman Transcript, Quest 64 covered its face and ran into its home, while Chex Quest called the reporters "vultures."
