Hello everyone, this is my first forum post in quite some time, and I would really appreciate some help on a game that I just got really into. What game you ask?

The original Growlanser on PS1.

I'm playing the first two Growlanser games simultaneously, I'm almost done with II, but I could really use help on the first game. Especially when it comes to getting endings with certain characters. I'm currently using a translation guide to help me with playing the first game provided by the Growlanser Realm fansite, but there are some things that I am unsure about. When I first started playing the game, Tippi asks you this question when you're watching over the Rosary Inn at the beginning of the game:

Tippi : I see...Finally, what's your type of woman?

1) An energetic and noisy girl (give points with Tippi)

2) A sweet and reserved girl (give points with Ruise(Louise))

3) A girl who is a bit clumsy (give points with Misha)

4) A reserved, mature older woman (give points with Karen)

5) An awe-inspiring, dignified woman (give points with Julia)

6) I'm not interested in women

I know that you can get vacation events with all those characters later in the game, but from reading that question, I would assume that you can get endings with the listed female characters above. If it exists in the game, the ending that I'm trying to get is Karen's ending - but I heard that she will die if you happen to screw up on some part later in the game, and I could also use some advice on getting Karen into my party and keeping her there until the end of the game.

Anyway, there are a lot of things that I'm unsure about with the character endings, It doesn't look like the translation guide does the best job explaining things, so if anyone is familiar with, or has played the original Growlanser, please tell me what you know. Anything will help. Thanks!

@mario113: It's not surprising that fanboys are celebrating it though. GameSpot's fanboys are pieces of shit.

Oh, remember our old friend Michael Pachter? He's celebrating it. Oh, and BLACKB0ND is too.

I managed to get my hands on EarthBound, I am currently working on completing Tales of Phantasia - the uncensored SNES version, by the way, and I'm working on finishing up one of the longest running anime series of all time: http://www.gamespot.com/profile/GSJones1994/anime-talk-detective-conan/26069411/

@Eikichi-Onizuka: Agreed. They can dislike the game all they want but no need for them to act like 5-year olds and throw temper tantrums. And I'm not exactly sure if it's really vocaloid music exactly, I thought it was just plain ol' J-pop. Guess I need to watch the trailer again...

@abHS4L88: I actually did quote some of your stuff, I didn't want to, but it was just too damn good that I had to lol. I guess I do have similar thoughts as you perhaps. I'll let you know next time I do something like this lol. Also, I don't know if you know about A Dose of Buckley on YouTube, but after watching his "Metalheads" video, I noticed that SMT fans are so much like Metal fans, which is why I decided to base most of this blog off that video because it's perfect. Go check it out. Also, are abIN4Cl and abHS4L88 both your profiles?

And...what the hell happened to the like system that GameSpot had?

@Ezioprez9709: I think the lawsuit with Viacom has done the most damage to YouTube, as they have the content ID system up because Viacom is literally breathing down their necks so they can avoid another lawsuit that they could possibly lose.

@Derpalon: "I am starting to reach the point where I think there needs to be an industry lobby that pushes for legislation which will regulate these practices, from day one DLC to pre-order bonuses, microtransactions, and most importantly DRM." - Unfortunately, I don't think it will happen though, no matter how much we want it to. Especially when it comes to Sony and Microsoft. The Japanese government is literally supporting Sony's bad business practices by planning to bail them out if they decide to file for bankruptcy, and Microsoft already lost an anti-monopoly lawsuit to the U.S. government and guess what happened to them? Nothing. Not a god damn thing.


"The game industry has some of the most insidious practices for swindling customers because these companies know they already have their customers in their pocket and they will give up nearly anything to play the games that they want to play, so publishers hold content hostage behind pay walls and arbitrary online activation hoops." - Well, this does make sense to an extent, but do you know another reason why they're using practices like holding content behind pay walls, putting out remasters of last gen games and so on? It's because a lot of these companies literally wasted so much money last generation chasing Sony and Microsoft bribes that they simply cannot afford to make games for the new consoles. One major flop and even EA or R* could go under. It really has gotten THAT bad. We are on the verge of industry crash #3 (first crash was actually the Pong crash). Konami is dead, as Kojima just got fired, Capcom is dying, SE is dying, Sega is dying, Hudson, THQ and Midway are gone. It's 1983 all over again.

I'm unable to post reviews as well! It's like whenever I finish writing a review, the site just gives me a 404 not found error screen!

I would like to see a Resident Evil character in the game considering how almost the entire series is on Nintendo platforms (excluding 5, 6, Revelations 2) and one mainline RE game is still Nintendo exclusive. Leon S. Kennedy would probably be the best fit. Sorry if that's the millionth time I've said it LOL. Also, speaking of Geno and how Square Enix still has the rights to him, I'm wondering when you'll do a rant blog about SE, also discussing Square Enix still having the rights to Geno.
