Memes & added references in game localizations


I feel like most of them aren’t too bad in terms of seeming super out of place, though some of that obviously depends on the original text. Ghido’s pizza line probably feels the most out of place in my opinion.


Wow, great job! Very cool finds :star_struck:

Here’s a clip of the Count for reference:

I’ll keep my eyes peeled for more references.
