Square Enix shut down all potential Chrono Trigger sequels:
Hironobu Sakaguchi, the father of the Final Fantasy franchise revealed a bit of back story about the plans for an official sequel to the adventure of Chrono Trigger.
According to Sakaguchi, he and the development team wanted to continue Chrono Trigger as a series like Final Fantasy and develop a proper sequel, but they didn’t see eye to eye with Square’s upper management. He explained that he fought for it, but lost the battle, so in the end it never happened.
This may have also played a role towards Sakaguchi ultimately leaving Square down the line.

Yesterday an announcement was made on Twitch’s official Twitter page notifying that the deal for Amazon to acquire the company has been made official.
This acquisition came on the heels of Justin.tv (Twitch’s original form) being shut down.
The CEO of Twitch, Emmett Sheer, had many kind words to say about the acquisition. Here’s some of what he had to say,
Today, I’m pleased to announce we’ve been acquired by Amazon. We chose Amazon because they believe in our community, they share our values and long-term vision, and they want to help us get there faster. We’re keeping most everything the same: our office, our employees, our brand, and most importantly our independence. But with Amazon’s support we’ll have the resources to bring you an even better Twitch.
Track Of The Week: The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker - "Molgera Battle Theme"
This week’s Track of The Week goes to Molgera Battle Theme from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Wind Waker has always been an extremely polarizing and controversial Zelda title with fans but it has been gaining more respect and fans as time goes on. One of the most underrated features of the game was its soundtrack. The creativity in blending so many unique and ethnic styles of music into one game was a daring task which Kenta Nagata, Hajime Waka & Nintendo did with ease.
Take a listen and see what we mean.
