    Undaunted by Calis' screwy code replacing the previous version with another instance of Deathy's Great Quest Article, Xerophyte re-uploads his review. Will the upload be a success? Or will the article once again fall prey to the foul bugs roaming the system?

    Stay tuned to find out!

    . . . Ah.

    So /that/ is what that blurb on the upload form was for: the content of the post on the feedback forum. Well. Now I know.

    (Professionalism? On a fansite? Pshaw!)

    Well then, feedback, feedback! I'm a poor swede writing in a strange language, flame me for my lacking grammatical aptitude or praise me for my astute witticisms! Find the five factual fudgeups! Tell me how out of wack I must be to possibly enjoy a game that stupid! Let the thread run wild with burning infernoes of opinion! Yay!

    Err. . . or, to be brief: feedback would be appreciated.

    Playing Japanese RPG's is a form of self punishment.

    I like Grandia II, and enjoyed the review. I played it on console though.

    It HAS to suck. Grandia cost money, was on a console, and was from another culture! Now, if it was shareware and made for PC by someone no one has heard of, then we might give it a chance.

    Xerophyte, just out of geographical curiosity: what is a Swede doing with a Gouda cheese sig? I actually live 5 km away from Gouda.

    I wonder if they'll ever port Grandia I & III on PC. I'm glad we got the second one, but why can't we get both the others? I'm not counting Xtreme, Parallel and the shitty MMO of course.

    Your closet.
    Tried replaying Grandia 1 a few months back, couldn't stand the dungeons and zoomed in camera view. Must've had a high tolerance for that shit when I was younger. Really grates on your nerves as you wander those huge areas aimlessly, hoping to your way out and to stop bumping into a million enemies. If they'd given you a zoom key instead of relying on those stupid gimmick markers that let you see more of the map momentarily, it would've made a world of difference.
