On the other hand, Canada also bears some responsibility for the craptacular recent plight of Crash Bandicoot. The hairier, ginger-er Sonic the Hedgehog was doing rather well with original developers Naughty Dog (Crash 1-3 were great, amusing platformers, and Crash Team Racing was a swift middle finger to Mario Kart), but he seemed to die on his ass in the transition between developers. After being tossed around like a hot potato --a hot potato containing volatile explosives and riddled with razor blades at that-- Crash arrived at the Vancouver-based Radical Entertainment. They proceeded to ‘radically entertain’ ABSOLUTELY NO BASTARD with the likes of Crash: Mind Over Mutant, Crash of the Titans and Crash: Here’s Another Title With a Bollocky Pun (we may --MAY-- have made that last one up). This half-assed mascot’s welcome has been thoroughly outstayed, and he now appears to spend his days punching large coyote-men in the dick, as you see here.
