hi, all. so last night, little_nerdxo and i were neck-deep in battle on lego indiana jones 2. mainly, we’d decided we were trying to go platinum and figured we could do it, being two people. we were working on figuring out the whole hovercraft vent thing in the second kingdom of the crystal skull area. you know, the one for the secret bonus thing.
i went to grab us some tea and when i got back to my living room, little_nerdxo was in an incoherent fit of excitement. we’d done it! apparently, you need to ride the bike onto the vent. however i had taken a while with the tea, so she started it and had almost finished playing through. i’d missed it, so she backed out, with the intent of starting it again for my benefit.
then, we discovered something heartbreaking: the goddamn bike was stuck in the air. we restarted the game, and got back there. still stuck in the air. i tried making my character into a woman to jump higher. nope. little_nerdxo grabbed the guy with a bazooka, started yelling about how she was about to do something for sparta and tried blasting that fucker out of the air. still, the bike was up in the air. we even tried restarting the entire game. nothing.
after about 20 minutes, it was evident it was a glitch. we googled it, and confirmed it: the bike is stuck there. we had no choice but to gnash our teeth in utter rage. today, i read on kotaku that we’ve got six more years of lego games. i had mixed emotions. on the one hand, fuck yes. i love lego. on the other… what i just described wasn’t my first lego glitch.
lego, since i know you’re reading: PAY ATTENTION TO QUALITY. ok?
