One thing you'd change
 
So if you could change one thing in Grim Fandango - what it would be? Take perfection to the next level: Uber Ultimate Supertastic Perfection!! :nut:

I would change the glitchy lifts.

James Isaac 05-13-2006 04:07 PM

I would change it so that the balloon twister did let you through his tent ;)

Grim_comician 05-14-2006 05:40 AM

Scorpicus> There is an official GF patch that fixes that elevator glitch, so it's already done.
Anyway, I'd like to fix the scythe problem that you won't have it in Year 3 after you've jammed the food closet in High roller's lounge.

Excerllentae! :thmbup1:

Well then, I'd better better change my answer: I would change Nick going to hell! How could they do that to the coolest charachter in the game? It sickens me...

Thrik 05-14-2006 11:01 AM

Justice.

VampireNaomi 05-14-2006 12:33 PM

As I said in this thread, I'd like to make Year 3 more interactive and insert more characters you could talk to. While the whole Manny/Meche angle in the third year was interesting, that year failed to touch me emotionally in the same way the other years did.

And I agree with you about Nick! I guess he deserved it, but damn, he was so cool. When I saw him in the train I thought he'd play a big part in Year 4 and was SO disappointed when he went down with the train.

Scorpicus 05-14-2006 01:55 PM

I love the way you gently imply: "YOU STOLE MY THREAD YOU CRETIN!!"

Shuz 05-14-2006 09:01 PM

- Bring back Domino's lost dialogue in year 3
- add more El Marrow content

Shuz 05-14-2006 09:02 PM

- bring back Domino's lost dialogue in year 3
- add more year 1 El Marrow content

I'll drink to that

I'd also like more characters, more locations, and to fix the scyth glitch

I ask a little much don't I

Of course. I think it's the first time I've been able to do that. :D

awww me too dude hehe when i saw pics of the demo i couldnt wait to get into that carnival! i spent about 3 hours trying to find a way through in case id missed something...

The only thing I'd change is this - I WOULD want to make GF2, unlike Lucas Arts.

I say, I say 05-19-2006 02:31 PM

Though I liked how you were thrown into different environments after a time-change ie Year 1-2, I would like to know how certain characters developed with Manny. I suppose Lola's death scene would have been more emotional had we known more abt her. Also I'd like to see more of what happened that last night in El Marrow; perhaps from Salvador's perspective.

Amen to that!

King Dando 05-24-2006 09:33 AM

I would want to see more of El Marrow in year one, most notably so, the festival, that would of been awesome. Also I was looking forward to Puerto Zapato, but I never saw it :(

I would of liked more locations, like a small town between the petrified forest and Rubacava, or a small island area in the Sea of Lament? and perhaps a bigger gap between the years instead of just a cutscene.

Yohein 05-24-2006 10:58 AM

I'm not sure, but maybe I would give Copal a bigger part in the story. I love that character, and when he died so early, I was a bit dissapointed. I would have given him another oportunity to screw up :D and Hector would have shot him :D

You mean when he talks to Manny in his office at the edge of the world? That's there for me, which is funny because I don't remember it being there last time I properly played the game which was about 3 years ago :smash:

Scorpicus 06-01-2006 12:56 PM

That dialog comes and goes for me, sometimes its there and sometimes it not.

I agree with you. Maybe not a whole town but just one big expensive house? Maybe some sort of 1920's modern white house with floor to celling windows and flat roof?

Maybe a door is left open Mannie can go into the modern house take some items and talk to the person who lives there...

Yohein 06-02-2006 02:59 PM

I would also like to see one of those Cat Races from a bit closer. The picture Lola gives you of one race is impressive.

itchythesamurai 06-02-2006 04:52 PM

I would've liked the cheat that made Manny fly to have actually worked.

Grim_comician 06-03-2006 07:08 AM

The flying cheat? I've read about it in the cheatbook, but I'd rather think it's a bull****. Flying would be pointless in Grim Fandango.

Yohein 06-03-2006 07:38 AM

Well, it would help to avoid all the Year 2. Manny would have reached the ship if he could fly :D :D
So, it's not useless... it's worse, because Year 2 is one of the best years :D

Grim_comician 06-03-2006 08:55 AM

That would be a change on the plot. It's just too bad that it doesn't even exist... for you.

That'd definitely be my top choice...I always wanted to go interact with the other people on the other side...but we can always dream...

Nick Virago 07-19-2006 12:27 PM

Change? when you reach perfection, you better leave it that way.

Abbath 07-21-2006 10:07 AM

I would change the tent in El Marrow so you can walk and see the festival

Quoththeraven 08-04-2006 03:57 AM

Apart from me being there? More Domino, definatley. ( sorry. I really can't spell) Although I do love his death scene (double death? somthing like that) I would love to have a chance to really see him in all his arrogant glory. Considering he's one of Manny's worst enimies, and really a motive for the theft that started it all, we don't see much of him.

Smon 08-04-2006 04:08 AM

...now that you mention it, I do wanna see a scene where Hector first asks Domino to be his right hand man.

Grim_comician 08-04-2006 08:20 AM

I'd also like to see some shots of Manny's in his past time in the DOD as a successful salesman till Don and Domino came in.

coat check girl 08-17-2006 11:02 AM

I'd like to know more about Olivia and more of Dom's pet octopus.
