In a way, I've been in anticipation of PoPoLoCrois
more than any other game that has ever come out here. See, it was first announced for the original PlayStation back in 1995 or so, when my young child brain was still trying to come down from the combined highs of the new 32-bit systems and the SNES classic Chrono Trigger
. I read about this game, thought it might be a marriage of my two then-favorite things, and then waited patiently as it never came out and was eclipsed by even more exciting titles. I guess I never really forgot about it entirely because I still felt an atrophied, dusty excitement when it was finally announced for release here.
