Some Neat Parasite Eve Prototype Shots I frigging love Parasite Eve for the Playstation.  It's one of my favorite RPGs of all time (small wonder, since it's written and directed by the guy who directed Chrono Trigger and designed Final Fantasy IV on the Super NES, and scored by Yoko Shimomura who did the music for Breath of Fire, Kingdom Hearts,...
