Grandma Scores Her RPG Fix: Growlanser Generations
Victor Ireland with Working Designs sent Grandma a free copy of their epic, Growlanser Generations. Grandma received the package today to find a bit larger box than she's used to getting for games. He sent her four Lunar 2 t-shirts (just her size) along with the Deluxe package, which includes some game associated bling, the soundtrack, and the first game-themed deck of cards she's ever owned.
It was the comparatively tiny PS2 two disc set lying underneath the enclosed wardrobe, however, that made her RPG withdrawal finally come to an end with tears of dialogue rich, tactical joy.
Grandma was into the LUNAR series like no one I know, so she was happier than an Akira fan on a souped-up motorcycle in Neo Tokyo when she opened up the trove Fed-Ex brought to us. A great many of you are intimately familiar with the Growlanser games, e-mailing us about the imports and people you know with "great collections to which you are entitled when they die" that could be "...obtained early." (What does this MEAN?)
The greatest joy Grandma has with the anticipation of beginning her quests (it's more than one game) is the immense scale of the game. As a standard go at the whole set ends somewhere between 80 and 100 hours and as Grandma, naturally, is driven by the need to complete every mission, destroy all those in her path (as well as the unfortunate few down other available paths) and watch the credits roll with an exhaustive feeling of closure, it could easily out perform her 130+ hour record with Final Fantasy VII.
Grandma is fucking PUMPED. Thanks Vic!!!
