Have You Played… Grandia?

Those in Europe might not have heard of this late PlayStation-era RPG. It's one I remember vividly, thanks to its distinct steam-punk vibe and memorable battle system.

Part Dark Souls (especially in its…

Grandia II Revamped & Rereleased In Anniversary Edition

As far as I can see, the only mention on RPS of vintage JRPG Grandia II is in an interview with the makers of Child of Light. I can't say I've played it myself, but I have heard folks talk warmly about it. It you missed it back during the early noughties, hey, don't worry - that port was a little wonky anyway, and you…
