Thumbs up Newbie

Hello everyone, I'm glad to have found this forum.
Recently, I was looking for my next computer gaming challenge, when some friends suggested that I try Grim Fandango. I had heard of it but never paid much attention to it, and that it was a out for a few years already didn't really peak my interest. But after reading reviews and such, I decided to give it a try.

Best decision I've made in a long time. I thoroughly and fully enjoyed the game!
The story line, the music, the character interaction, the subtlety, the nuances and the humor were all A-One!

I WANT MORE and I WANT IT NOW!!!!

welcome


Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at You, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story

Okay, Gosh darn it!!!! It's been pure hell listening to all of you trashing me and not being able to respond. The honest truth is that I forgot my password and forgot where I wrote it down. But as you can see, I finally found it.

Also, I am not much of a talker so I don't post much anyway. So, in just let me say this.........."Grim Fandango was great and I'm glad to have found this forum" :

Only five times? That's just not trying very hard.

Yes, well, there's not much going on GF-wise anywhere. Maybe that'll change when the people with the web sites get a little spare time.

ive only played the game full through twice, i see playing games loads of times over ruins them and gives much more anxienty for a sequel, so i'm now reading the book , kicks ass by the way.

Hey. I'm new to the Grim Fandango community here. I got Grim Fandango and I have to say that it is probably one of the coolest and best games. I love it. Awesome story line and all of what that guy said that never replied. It was just really cool and I need a new Grim Fandango before I go BOOM!. By the way, the book... is it called Grim Fandango and is it in book stores? Thanks.

There is no official book, but i think Tellus12 is refering to the fan novel that MeddlingMonk wrote. Great read

Get it here
