TSM Episode 686: Portly Ports

A port or not a port? That is the question.

Caspius and SiliconNooB review playthrough progress on Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger (is anyone playing Radical Dreamers?), rejoice at the advancement of Xenoblade Chronicles 3’s release date, and then nearly come to blows after a spot of port.


  1. The battles which were falling apart were in the Fossil Valley, and I think a couple in the Viper Manor Bluffs. This is on a 5 year old Switch on the TV. I’ve stopped playing it for at least a week, being last inside of the Viper Manor. I can tell now I’m not going to get that third star.

  2. @Tanzenmatt: We believe in you!

    Also, the Amazon link for physical pre-orders of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is now live.

  3. Portal Origins makes a hell of a lot of sense when you think about it. Aperture over the years starting in the ’50s through the ’80s and until just before Chell gets started? Cave Johnson as he lived in the flesh? They built the bones of that story into Portal 2 already.

    “Not all games need to make CSGO money.” I’ve made a similar argument about fighting games. Not all of them have to be esports, there’s plenty of room in that community for a mildly successful but well loved franchise like Samurai Shodown showed in 2019.

  4. For the Caspi Quiz, I think 12
    Final Fantasy X/X-2
    Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac age
    Final Fantasy XIII
    Final Fantasy XIII-2
    Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
    Xenosaga 1
    Xenosaga 2
    Xenosaga 3
    Xenoblade chronicles definitive
    Xenoblade chronicles 2
    Xenoblade chronicles X

  5. I’m just going to guess 8 titles for the Caspiquiz and hope I’m right this time.

  6. Telltale games went out of business a few years ago. And I was hoping to win Deadly Towers

  7. @CatPrancy: The reward is a Nintendo Switch cartridge. Has Deadly Towers been released on the Nintendo Switch?

  8. You also said it could’ve been a bad game. And I know you don’t own any of the Fable titles.

  9. I don’t know Caspius. Deadly Towers should be on there though. haha.

  10. The quiz question is about games I own for the Switch!

    But even more generally, I only own a PS4, Wii, and Switch!

  11. I thought the C.C battle system was fine at the time because I was blowing through battles and didn’t have to pay that much attention to it.

    I’ll just guess 4 for the CaspiQuiz. You seem to sell and buy Xeno-games at random so who even knows if you have Xenoblade one or two at the moment.
