Grandma Gets Back To Growlanser
It's a little thing, no big deal, really- but it's worth pointing out.
Grandma can't change the names of the characters. She can choose blood type and astrological sign, but she understandably can't name her main guy "Crackhead" or "Sam The Dancing Frog." The recorded voice acting wouldn't be able to compute such a change, so she knows why. It's good to make the game your own, however. In every Final Fantasy game I've ever played, the main character is not "Cloud" or "Squall," it's always "Dude." The emotion of the game isn't diminished at all when a character screams in a silent CAPS voice: "DUDE! WE NEED YOU TO SAVE THE PLANET!!! Don't you UNDERSTAND, DAMMIT??" As long as I'm into it, it doesn't matter.
Grandma is the same way.
The map system is different than the GII, so that is taking some getting used to, but otherwise she's cracking some skulls.
