I didn't know a bandicoot was a real animal until like a year ago.

I just thought Crash was just some made up animal called a bandicoot for all these years.

Only now, while looking at some of the screenshots I took on the PS4, did I notice that the steering wheel in Uncharted The Lost Legacy's jeep is on the left side, when, in fact, it should be on the right, that being India and all.
It truly baffles me how, in a game with such incredible attention to detail, nobody in the development team noticed that. That's fucked up.
Still a masterpiece of a game, though.

Perhaps it's an American jeep?

Wouldn't make much sense (in fact, would make no sense at all) to bring an American jeep (or from any other country, for that matter) all the way to India, when they can just rent one. It's not like it's an unique vehicle that can be found nowhere else. We're not talking about KITT here.

Anyway, now that I think about it a bit further, all of the vehicles in the game have the steering wheel on the left side, it's not just that jeep in the Western Ghats.
So, I guess I could kind of accept the explanation that one of the vehicles, for some reason, is an import from a right-hand-driving country... But all of them? No way.

And now that that I think about it even further, all of the vehicles in Uncharted 2's Nepal section also have the steering wheel on the left side. Another inaccuracy.

Can't remember if the Scotland portion in Uncharted 4 had any vehicles, but, if it had, I'd wager the steering wheel is also on the wrong side.
Sad.

Nintendo wants to charge $20 annually for access to online multiplayer. Total crock of shit right there. The two games I've played online on Switch have been laggy as all hell. Mario Kart 8 and Rocket League. With Rocket League I can compare directly to how it performs on my PS4, and there's zero comparison.

Nintendo needs to learn what the internet is before they charge for online access.

Well this is new.

3D remake? HD remaster? Shitty iOS version?
No idea yet, but I'm getting the urge to go back and finally get through that PSP version. Been on backlog forever. Damn near the top of the backlog, but it's just been sitting there regardless.
Also nice to see Square going back into the old Enix properties. More of that, thanks.

^^Y'know, I hadn't even thought of it, but now that actually does feel a little more plausible. Vagrant Story has always been just about the tippy top of the "damn, I wish they'd remake that" pile for me, but it never struck me as a realistic hope. But hey, if this Valkyrie Profile thing actually is a 3D remake... well suddenly VS doesn't seem so out of the question.

Weird thing, but I'd still like it to be devoid of voice acting. I always felt like the lack of it actually boosted that ominous atmosphere.

:lol:
Welp, whatta waste.

I will say it's at least nice to see the game getting a new release regardless; neither the PS1 nor the PSP versions are available on the Playstation Store, which has always confused the shit out of me (would have loved to download it for use on my Vita).
Still, I can't remember the last time I bothered playing anything on my phone, even though I literally have it with me all the time. So yeah, whatta waste.

So Sonic Mania is finally getting a physical release. :lol: Feel a bit miffed considering how much more I paid for the huge collector's edition with the statue considering it was "digital only". :P But I can't argue with giving more spotlight to a Sonic game actually worth its salt.
