    II. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS                                           [FAQZ]
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    
     [Q] - I can't pet the cat in Marib!
     [A] - This is a known glitch, which is why the walkthrough suggests doing it
           immediately upon visiting.
    
     [Q] - Ultar (taxi driver) won't take the towel in Marib!
     [A] - Make sure to give him the one stolen from the bathroom, not the one
           obtained at the Irish pub. Some people have been confused on this...
    
     [Q] - Is this version worth getting over the others?
     [A] - The PC version is unquestionably the best, as it also reveals Nico's
           actions while George is gallavanting around Europe. This version's best
           for portability, but is likely the worst version otherwise.
    
     [Q] - Can you play as Nico in this?
     [A] - No. Those who want to do her scenes should buy the Director's Cut for
           this game or move onto Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror.
