    Thanks, Dorateen! :)
    I would not call this article a review, but I am grateful we now have the Grimoire manual/guide we were craving for so long. :salute:

    I am sure a review of a wiz-like blobber by Dorateen is absolutely 100% objective and true
    Don't even need to read it
    Show Spoiler
    I will still read it
    Show Spoiler
    because there is another hotfix for Pathfinder downloading
    Show Spoiler
    ask me about Pathfinder
    Show Spoiler
    I am not sure why you clicked here

    man he even writes like a dwarf, or like an ancient treant
    feel like I am drowning.

    Well it is informative I guess, but nothing that really criticizes it as a blobber, just a very long description of features.
    You can only know fun when you play fun I guess

    True, more of a full-throated celebration of reactionary game design. But also a bit of historical analysis of how Grimoire fits in with its illustrious predecessors.

    Sex mods are sthooo yesterday.

    I would rather delve in the holier than thou storytelling of Biotardation Mass Effect Andromaderp with its deep roleplaying opportunities that allows me to play as a multicoloured asexual furry.

    The hilarious thing is that Grimoire is actually a really good game, which makes the random shitposting look really retarded

    As someone who was never a blobber fan, playing Grimoire as one of my first blobbers at v1.0 was still fun enough to make me finally play Wizardry 1 and follow other blobbers new and old with a new appreciation. And that's with that motherfucking buttraping mechanism of an inventory bar.

    Aspergers and autists are at different far ends of the human spectrum and the number one distinguishing feature of autists is that they have trouble knowing when something is funny. Today's crop of SSRI babies raised in latchkey single parent settings are frightened of everything - even a high pitched baby head. Everything is too much stimulation for them.

    Joking apart, I absolutely love Grimoire (and bought it @Steam upon release!).

    As stated (many times) earlier, would be so awesome if you could go on Matt Chat to promote and discuss how you made it.
    I can PM over his contact details, let me know.

    If I were the passenger I wouldn't eat the popcorns. Obviously the driver's sweat and dirt and other secretions would mix in.

    Wait, so Grimoire's actually been released?! For real? Dammit, I leave the Dex for two years and I miss this momentous occasion... what are the odds of that?
    Bought and installed.

    Next Friday is not here yet.

    Besides, if you think that being a few months late is something, you haven't been around the Grimwah saga long enough.

    With the release of Grimoire Version 2, any criticisms I mentioned in this review have surely been addressed.

    Game is now completely flawless.

    If Grimoire first patch comes up ten years later, it can still be called day one patch.
