Remember yesterday when I wrote about the need to cut back on my articles' length? Whoops.
I'm not saying I wouldn't go back and edit this down a bit if I had the time, but I do think there's a point here that's worth making. My rambling has a purpose.
While researching this topic, I was reminded that The Land of the Livid Dead has actually appeared in the Rayman series before, in Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc. I forgot all about it, which isn't so surprising. I've forgotten almost everything about Rayman 3. It's one of only five games I've ever rented, and I beat it in a weekend. I had a blast with it, but even as I was playing, it seemed forgettable. A perfect rental, really.
Anyway, TLotLD is is better in Rayman Origins than it is in Rayman 3 because you don't have to listen to John Leguizamo.
