Next to the Swamp Shooting gallery is a ledge with two bushes, these bushes will always contain either a Red or two Blue Rupees.
Following NPCs in Dragon's Dogma will actually change their day to day life. One particular example is Josua, who can be found walking around the urban quarter of Gran Soren. Following him from his appearance to his despawn at at his home at night will actually stop him from spawning the next day. Attempting to talk to him any time after this will cause him to view you as hostile and flee. Giving him the Arisen's Bond will not stop this.
Wurmple evolves depending on its personality value, a random and unseen factor.
Rapidly confirming and deconfirming the character select button on bowser and luigi in melee can result in it sounding like loser.
Spamming Raditz' "I'll kill you quickly" is effective in beating a mission in DB raging blast
You can break Halo 3 by detonating enough explosives at once
In Metroid II, you can do an extra jump after taking damage. Which allows you to go to areas without specific items and shave off multiple minutes in speedruns.
>implying people care about Metroid II
in pokemon heartgold and soul silver, when you get to the cerulean cape where bill's house is and you take the shortcut back to cerulean city, there's a bunch of "randomly placed" water puddles. However if you walk across the puddles and listen carefully to the noise they make, the timing of the "splash" noise is perfectly in sync with the percussion in the background music. go ahead, try it out. a little music-related trivia from pokemon!
In the Metroidvania games, if you stop time and throw items like knives and axes, they'll freeze in place shortly after you throw them. Once the time's up, they'll go on their intended path. This is a reference to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
Yes and no, it's a bunch of numbers and code that involves whether it will be shiny, the number of iv's, it's nature and everything else about it
Go to forge and pick the stage the allows the most explosive items, spawn them together, along with anything you can find on the stage. Set for everything to spawn as fast as possible and shoot at it. The game can potentially crash or slow down terribly.
70-80% of guns in CoD that are modeled with fire selectors have them set to Semi or Safe even though they are usually fired FA ingame.

It takes about 9 years to fully complete Runescape.
This means completing all quests, tasks, skills, minigames and so on.
It also takes a year to achieve 99 on all skills, if you play 16 hours a day.
In GTA Vice City Stories, you can use the dodo to break through the flight ceiling of the game. This can be used to let you fly up to the top of the tallest building in the game, as well as find building without roofs. You can fly down through these buildings to go under the city. continuing to fly down will let you load the "interiors" area of the game. Down here you can floating boxes that are the rooms of houses and even the inside of the Hymen Stadium.
Ocelot's signature hand gestures were improvised by his mo-cap actor in MGS3.
In the Japanese GameCube version of Wind Waker, the chest underneath Link's house contains a Piece of Heart. It held an Orange Rupee in the US and PAL versions.
The Piece of Heart that was under the house is at the bottom of the Savage Labyrinth in the US and PAL versions of Wind Waker, but in the Japanese version, the prize was a Yellow Rupee
There is a bunny girl and puff puff in every main Dragon Quest game. Even the first one.
In Super Mario World, the level Chocolate Island 2 will send you to different sublevels depending on a few factors.
The first sublevel depends on the amount of coins you have: the conditions are less than eight coins, less than twenty-one coins and more than twenty-one coins. The second sublevel depends on the timer: 250 or more seconds, 235-249 seconds, or 234 and less.
>Can remember everything about all games I play

neat. keep it up /v/
Ape Escape 3 has an ape version of Ratchet from Ratchet & Clank in exclusively the European and Japanese versions of the game, activated by a special code. In the American version, an equivalent code produces a generic version of Ape Ratchet, a monkey in cyborg armor.
Interestingly enough, looking at unused content it's possible there's an unused code to catch Ape Ratchet, meaning that nobody in the NTSC-U territory has fully, 100% completed the game. I found that out by myself.
The highest scoring attack in Double Dragon for the NES is the headbutt. It is the most logical way to score 50,000 points as it gives you about 1000 a hit. I know this because I wanted to achieve that mythical score they talked about in the Wizard. Between it hurting you for doing it and still trying to beat the level logically, the soonest I got 50,000 points was right at the start of the forest. Good way to level up really quickly.
Spread throughout Halo 4 are a number of audio logs that explain pieces of fiction not explained to the player otherwise. No, I'm not talking about the video terminals either. The level "Composer" has the most.
Also in the second level of the game, hidden around the level are at least two SAWs, two rocket launchers and a single shotgun and sniper rifle
You can KO and Spike characters with Luigi's taunt in Smash Bros. Since it deals 1 damage if it connects.
There are two gold statues near the end of Spec Ops: The Line that, if you look back down the escalator after passing them, will briefly take on different positions. On one play-through one was made of burning flesh. On another one was pointing its fingers like a gun at the other's head. There are actually quite a few of these weird little embellishments in there.
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, is the only GBA game that's known to have two different NOT FOR RESALE cartridges, one as the full game, and the other is marked DEMO and has only the first few dungeons. Both were used as demos by stores

And that undodgeable attack he does where his head chases you? You can avoid it if you roll around in a circle as Goron Link.
I used to play the game religiously for like a month last year
In Super Mario 64, there's a 255 coin limit. If you hit this limit in the Japanese game, you get 'negative lives'. The other versions don't have this. The only way to legitimately do this is to collect all 255 coins from the Bowser fight(s). At that point you can't collect any more coins. The results screen displays a number less than 255 coins at the end.
It's been awhile since I looked into this, so I could be wrong. I even tried this once. It took about an hour.
>not filling them both with as many 0 second respawning explosives as possible and making them fly through around the map on CTF and making the teams attempt landings via banshees
With all the jojo references in castlevania games I actually wouldn't be surprised, but he does seem to be grasping
Some of the things are a bit of a stretch as its a wiki, but some characters outright quote jojo in japanese versions
Fits if you ask me, what with the whole bloodline and vampires themes matching up
hahah this guy sounds like the retards that edit like spongebob wikis and shit where they take the most obscure shit and tie it to something else like it's a reference like "squidward turned his head left and that may be a reference to this episode 302 of bleach"
If you choose the Femme Fatale multiplayer character in Lost Planet 2 and equip her with the jungle pirate top, you can make her boobs jiggle by rotating her while in the equipment screen.
Its a hallucination that depends on whether or not you shot the gun pinned by the burning truck, or let him burn alive (with a respective statue).
Spec ops is full of stuff like that. Like the general's face on stuff, and I think protag abandons trigger discipline before the end. Also a tree that dies when you look at it again.
There's a buried Lava Cookie in Pokemon FireRed, located directly to the south of the hidden truck near the SS Anne.
The house on Seven isle with the barricaded door allowed you to fight e-Reader trainers in the Japanese version.
You can access the area behind the minigame building on Two Island by maxing out the score counter on the Dodrio Berry Picking minigame. There's nothing interesting there. This is exclusive to the 1.0 version of the game.
Lots of random stuff I've picked up from speedrunning
There's an extra world in Bomberman Hero that most people have never played. You have to have an autofire controller or mash A like crazy as the game starts up. If done correctly, there will be an extra option to select at the main menu
In Sonic Generations, the entirety of Crisis City Modern is loaded behind the white world
The item drops aren't random in The Legend of Zelda. They work off a counter system. If you know the pattern you can get guaranteed drops from enemies
The original System Shock has a similar system but way more complex
Doshin the Giant is hidden in the data files for Twilight Princess
You can sprint and jump over the railing on the left side of the stairs leading down to the buttresses with the two dragonslayer bow silver knights, by passing the obnoxious act of luring the batwing demons out one at a time or even worse the painful fight with all three at once
Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout's fighter roster was entirely decided upon by a Bandai poll of Japanese fans. The roster ended up consisting of SIX different Gokus and only 9 different characters. After it came out everyone complained there was too much Goku
On Sandtrap and Sandbox, if you lay as many tripmines as possible in a single spot and detonate them all at once, it breaks the map and the bombs that pop up out of the ground (Sandtrap) and the lasers from the turrets (Sandbox) stop working.
In the PS2 game Galerians: Ash, a track early in the game can be heard during a fight with security robots called Buseki. This very track is a variation of a theme in the Galerians: Rion movie called Short. That theme first appeared in the PSX Galerians game as a track which sampled from Nine Inch Nails' Terrible Lie.
It is the only piece of music that has appeared in every single installment in the Galerians series in some shape or form.
oh fuck off there was some thread about poochie characters this morning and they mentioned spongebob so i looked at that to see what they were talking about
yeah they have a section devoted to this shit:
The name Kenny the Cat may be a reference to Tom Kenny, SpongeBob's voice actor. The 1st 2 words was the reference to Discovery Kids' animated TV Series "Kenny the Shark."
Kenny's appearance is similar to Tom from Tom and Jerry (as stated above) and the cartoon version of Salem Saberhagen from Sabrina The Teenage Witch.
The way Sandy thought Kenny was a fraud (and was) could be a reference to celebrities in real life, and how people think about them.

zeldas lulaby repairs broken signs
in mgs3 if you spin snake in circles a few times when you're in the menu looking at your camouflage he'll throw up when you unpause the game because he got dizzy

its good to know that i actually care for something and is not just a distraction.
Pointless can mean many things in this context.
Second of all, it is pointless. You will never actually kill a person with Luigi's taunt unless you get EXTREMELY lucky. Like a 1/10000000 chance.
The Silencer treasure in Pikmin 2 had a value of 666 pokos in the japanese release. The waterwraith's rollers can be petrified separately from the creature itself, and it will struggle to move them.
You can hear some developer commentary in Metroid Prime 3 by pressing the right buttons in Samus's ship.
There is a painting of the Skull Knight in Drakengard.
There are a few bosses in the first kingdom hearts game that don't load invisible walls, allowing you to simply leave the area and fight them later
the most interesting one is the reverse armor, because you can have him chase you around the second district of traverse town for almost the entire game, as you only need to beat him to open up the second to last level
Don't Starve, if you take a character-specific item with you, you'll get another one, but after closing and reopening your save, the second item will be gone.
In Risk of Rain, while paying as Merc, if you get enough Goat Hooves you can pass trough slim walls.
These arent pointless but fuck it
You can freeze King Garo with Ice Arrows
You can get up Ikana Canyon without Ice Arrows by hookshotting a tree from the wrong side of the canyon. There's a specific spot to stand.
You can hop the fence to Great Bay by placing a bomb down, turning into a Goron, and doing a ground pound at the right time
Not the guy, but he's probably referring to the original Zelda. Certain items have a higher spawn rate when fighting certain enemies (bombs and blue rupees off blue enemies while hearts and single rupees off red enemies, etc).
More then half of AW's primary gun models are taken from Ghosts and retooled.

The flashback where the Lich and shadow figures walk away from the exploding mushroom bomb is similar to the flashback in Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind where the god warriors walk through a burning city.
The Mushroom War releasing magic into the world is similar to the backstory of Wizards.
The fleet of planes that Ice King saw flying in the sky were Boeing B-29 Superfortress planes. A B-29 Superfortress is a US-developed heavy bomber that is famous in WWII, primarily used to destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The name of the Town that Finn visits shares its name with a post-war settlement from the 1997 Post-Apocalyptic video game Fallout.
The cops in Assault do not have an animation for being knocked against a wall or having their throat slit via standing execution, so neither are viable options for killing them
The detectives on floor two are the only enemies in the game that do not kill you when they hit you
Also when reacting to gun fire the detectives prioritize searching the exact location you fired from above everything else, meaning if you fire around a corner and they come running you can walk right past them shooting them and they will not respond to you until they reach the place you first shot from
Killing enemies who do not have a weapon visible on them when they spawn (ie sitting down or on the phone) before they notice you can cause them to drop different weapons than they ordinarily are supposed to be able to; most notable one I found is the very first mobster on Push It always drops a baseball bat if you knock him down but if you execute him through the door he can drop any ordinary melee weapon or any gun
I could give a lot of info on that game, I fucking love it
In MW3, the USAS 12, MP9, and Scorpion give the player a longer sprinting distance. If a player begins to sprint with one of them and switches to a different weapon, the effect will still last until the player can no longer sprint.
This also stacks with extreme conditioning for the longest possible sprint duration.
The AK-74u has the same slower running speed as assualt rifles.
Only the R700 and Barrett can 1HK a juggernaut user in the chest.
If you crouch with no weapon out in first person then switch to third person and draw a weapon you will stay crouched and have stealth active but will move as fast as if you were jogging
There's an invisible PC in the corner of the Celadon City Hotel in Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow, if you stand in front of it's square you can access storage as normal.
Every Pokemon game that describes losing a battle as "Blacking out" has the screen go white, while those that say you "whited out" will turn the screen black.
Nintendo had planned to make Pokemon's mascot Clefairy back in 1996, but Pikachu became overwhelmingly popular that the anime had to adopt him as Ash's partner, making Pikachu the official mascot
Every 10th enemy you kill drops an item. Killing a specific enemy can change what is dropped
In pokemon gold/silver, if you go to the house that used to be the pokemon daycare in the previous generation in Kanto, it will be locked and with a sign that says "House for Sale... Nobody lives here."
In pokemon crystal, on the top floor of the Celadon Mansion "talk" to the wall that's part of the structure where the stairs are, you'll get the text "There's graffiti on the wall... PLAYER added a moustache!"
In the 4th generation of games, arceus was introduced, and it's normal type. It can change its type to any type in the game by holding plates. There was until then a typeless type kind, the ???, which had only one move assigned to it, curse. To prevent the game from crashing if arceus happened to take ??? form, a sprite for the ??? form was added into the game. A hacked ??? arceus will act as typeless and take neutral damage and never stab, except for judgement, that will convert into ??? type and deal neutral damage to all pokemon.
??? type was fully removed on the 5th generation and Course switched to being a ghost move.
In the same generation, there was the azure flute, an event-only item intended to unlock some extra scenes/game and allow you to capture arceus in game. This item was never distributed making the arceus impossible to reach through normal means because the producers thought it was going to be an event "too difficult to understand"
In Elebits, there is a Robbie the Rabbit statue item (Elebits was developed by Konami as well).
Il Paintissimo in Super Mario Sunshine has the face model from the mailman in LoZ: Ocarina of Time.
That reminds me of what Bulbapedia sometimes posts:
>Seel is a corruption of the sea creature seal.
No shit. Oh well I guess they're just trying to be consistent.
In Hotline Miami on Chapter 3: Decadence, It's possible to kill the boss in only two shotgun blasts instead of three. After the boss falls from the 2nd shotgun blast, you can walk onto him and gouge his eyes out then and there. You can also gouge his eyes out after the 3rd blast, before he sits back up and begs you not to kill him, but most people probably already knew that one.
The art used for his fallen sprite is the same for the 2nd and 3rd shotgun blasts, and is probably related to him being killable early.
I found this out by accident while speedrunning.
In the Final Chapter: Showdown, the final boss is momentarily immune to damage after being hit by the first throwing knife. You have to give him a second before throwing the second (and/or third) knife, or it will just go right through him and you'll probably get gunned down for acting too fast.
I didn't think someone else remebered that game.
Game makes me feel fuzzy inside for some reason.

Hehe, I remember a friend showing me this as a kid
The female guard from the Hoxton Breakout trailer is in the game and is dispatched at the start of the Hoxton Breakout heist day 1. If you take her hostage you can Joker her, and she has the same voice lines as a regular male guard

Krunk, from Metal Arms:Glitch in the System, is voiced by Dan Castellaneta, the voice actor for Homer Simpson.
Spade is the only driver you cannot see driving throught he cockpit glass, no matter how much you tweak the replay camera.
For that reason, he's likely the only character in the game without a in-race driving model.
After collecting the Berserk Gene is Pokemon Crystal, flying directly to the Seafoam Gym and talking to Blaine will yield unique dialogue. Using a Pokemon Center or entering battle after collecting the Gene will prevent the event from taking place.
Rare once tried to make a handheld game console with Neo Geo levels of graphics callex the Playboy. The Game Boy's appearance at an expo knocked some sense into them, and it was cancelled before it was even announced.
There is a glitch in Donkey Kong Country that turns Rambi the Rhino into a choppy, gray-colored Donkey Kong. While this glitch is active, DK will constantly thrust forward and back as if riding Rambi, making it look like he's fucking himself.
In R/B/Y/FR/LG, in Silph Co. there is one stat boosting item per floor hidden inside of a plant.
Pokemon's development team was having trouble compressing just the Johto data for Gold and Silver to fit on a cartridge, but HAL Labs programmer Satoru Iwata was able to optimize the data enough that the team was able to include nearly all of Kanto as well
The Cloaker's 4th wall breaking lines in Payday 2 exist primarily to joke with the community about how much difficulty Overkill Studios had when implementing them. They were originally planned to be in the game on release and were almost entirely finished but they were unable to fix a game crashing bug with them by the time deadlines rolled around. They specifically included lines that referenced peoples' two most common initial reactions to cloakers: wanting to hear their new voice lines and getting upset at the difficulty spike they created when implemented
>I bet you let yourself get hit just to hear what I have to say!
>Now go to the forums and cry like the little bitch you are!
in portal1, you can glitch the game in order to take a sentry turret inside glados chamber. You can bait the turret to shoot you and if the missed bullets hits glados, it "dies" instantly (loses the cores)
Alternativelly, without a glitch, from outside the last emancipation grid and outside glados chamber, you can place a portal with a turret in an angle that it reaches glados and bait the bullets. The bullets are not stopped by the emancipation grid and you kill glados even before reaching it ant activating the first events. (you still need to manually pick up the dropped cores and throw them in the fire pit)
In World of Tanks, there's a spot in Kharkov in the lower-east corner, where if you drive your tank in between 2 indestructible cars, you can send it flying across the map and even glitch it below, making you invincible for the rest of the match.
in the non-fes version of persona 3 there are a number of ways to trigger glitchy un-translated dialogue, comprised of random shapes and the odd japanese character
among these are trying to sell something you have equipped to the drug store, or asking yukari to heal you while she's tired
The Magnum sidearm in Left 4 Dead 2 does not have any form of indentation at the front of the gun. It's a flat surface. There is nowhere for the bullets to come out of.
The right side of the gun is untextured in the viewmodel. That side is not normally visible to the player, anyway.
He was also Christopher Lloyd's sidekick in Toonstruck
This is referenced in some of the extra art in the Bayonetta art book, where Enzo is playing (and winning, because he sucks at poker) strip poker with a certain someone.

Theater was not included in the campaign because of QTE's.
I'm pretty sure you can't do that because I often have a dead dragon spawn in Whiterun and I get rid of him with firebolts that send him flying. He hits an invisible wall outside of Whitrun.
In Ar Tonelico, there are several H-scenes that are inaccessible by normal means but are still in the game files. The game also has a total of 832 unused character animations, along with having a hidden dungeon only accessible by re-visiting the starting town during the last chapter that is extremely well hidden contains end-game gear and items as frequent drops from enemies with insane difficulties, and a boss that is similar in difficulty to ruby weapon.
but those aren't worse, in fact the majority of them are relatively relevant cultural references. Hell, I don't even watch adventure time but I know how these aren't anywhere near as bad as the mental gymnastics you'd have to do in order to come to the conclusions outlined in >>274479924 this post
In Red Dead Redemption, the house in Tumbleweed is actually not haunted. There is a gang of bandits that loads inside one of the locked rooms in the main house and will talk amongst themselves. You can't get into the room, but you can see them by manipulating the camera through the wall.
Which SSB game? The first one?
Oh yes, it's one of my favorite games of all time for that same reason. I love the music and gameplay.
In The Last Stand you can continuously fire most automatic weapons while reloading. Usually this will result in bullet casings leaving your gun and your ammo count depleting before being refilled during your reload animation, but bullets will not fly out. The Uzi however does fire bullets while reloading and shooting, and with its high rate of fire and magazine size you can fire a huge stream of bullets out without ever stopping to reload
There is an Easter Egg in Batman: Arkham Asylum that reveals the plot of the second game, Arkham City. However, it was so well-hidden (behind a destructible wall with no indication that it is destructible, or anything other than a regular wall) that the developers just came out and revealed the Easter Egg when it was still undiscovered a few months after release.
The one-armed inmate in Arkham Asylum, the one in the same room as Clayface's cell, is modeled after someone who won a contest to be featured in the game.

Dante's dialogue in the scene where he gets Lucifer was completely ad-libbed by his voice and mo-cap actor, Reuben Langdon.
When going for an older Dante for DMC4, Langdom said he based his performance on Roy Focker, one of the characters from Macross.
I genuinely discovered this hiding from guys in a run around the time the game came out and died because I was laughing too hard to react to the enemies killing me
Looking through Kirby's Return to Dream Land's files and magolor's dialog I found out if you talk to him too much he'll get annoyed and ask of you to get back to "helping" him, he's a demanding bitch
>Kirby, I'm glad you like talking to me so much, but... Why don't you stop wasting time and get back to your adventure? You Popstar folk sure do take your time, don't you?
>Kirby, please hurry up and get back to your quest. I mean, seriously. You're a hero, for crying out loud. You should be excited to help me!
>Kirby, it may seem like I'm just hanging out in here, but I'm pretty busy. I'm way behind on my chores, and I really need a haircut. So please stop distracting me and get on with your adventure!
>Dude. Seriously. Hurry up and finish your quest already. If you don't actually help me out, your offer to help me out is kind of mean... SO HURRY AND HELP ME OUT, KIRBY!

In the final level of super mario 64 there's an unkillable goomba at the bottom of the map that you can't get to because it's below the death line
Goombas are usually in pairs of three, but one was placed too far off an edge and ended up in the abyss

The uniquely named AI on the America's Army 2 coop map Interdiction, such as GeorgeSteele, are named after various notable players

In Metro 2033, on the trolley level with Pavel (trolley combat?) if you wait long enough at the pneumatic door at the beginning of the level, Pavel will fall asleep and start snoring. Once you honk he will wake up grunting and startled.
That may be a result of not having documents of the code to work with, otherwise it may have been straight up ported. He essentially rewrote the coding through his knowledge of the game and memory
I remember doing this with the reverse Armor when I was younger. It was pretty cool that the music would start back up and he'd just be floating right there waiting for you.
What other bosses do this?
in pokemon red/blue, if you go to celadon and enter the hotel that looks like a pokemon center and stand where the PC would be in a pokemon center ( but isnt in this building ) you can use the PC anyway. I dont know if Ive seen anyone else say this online or if its just common knowledge

You can find a piece of bread in the bandit leader's room in the northern factory in the Dark Valley simply called "bread"
It is likely
left oversfrom when they were first implementing food into the game
Just north of the southern factory in the Dark Valley is a large metal structure, I think a grinder of some kind, with a guitar and radio in it as well as a few other items and usually an artifact
You cannot use the radio or play the guitar as they were likely cut features
a cut feature from mgs2 was an item you could unlock called the mantis mask that, when worn, would reveal what people were actually thinking and help understand the story better because everyone is lying constantly
>You can walk during codec calls in MGR:R
did people really stand still during codec calls?
>Airblasting people on fire in TF2 will put out the fire
for fuck's sake it's even a tooltip.
The AI in FEAR are not very complex nor intelligent when looked directly at
The level design, however, was created with this in mind and includes a vast number of options available to the AI at all times
This gives them the illusion of being fast thinking and creates much better replay value as the AI have so many options it's unlikely they'll respond the same way to the player's actions every time
In Forgen by detonating enough mines at one, you can overload the map, rendering any and all interactive things or shit using some sort of AI to deactivate.
No more guardians, no more elevators, shit like that.
No, it's essentially some random number from 1 to 2378412374512374165476142367152367451234 (this isn't the actual number, but it is a really fucking big number). Half the numbers will cause it to be Silcoon, the other half will cause it to be Cascoon.
At the start of the second level of Aladdin for the Genesis, if you take a few steps forward and then immediately move back to your starting location you'll be able to move further back than normal and get a 1up.
In half Half-Life: Blue Shift, the box in Calhoun's locker can be broken by firing all the handgun ammo picked up from the range and in tour inventory (should be 17+51) and will reveal a Chumtoad inside it
The designs for the characters Ratchet and Clank were based off of enemies in Hurricos, a level in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage.
In the first Spyro the Dragon game, the purple adult dragon in the Dark Hollow level was originally meant to be Spyro's dad. This is the only purple dragon besides Spyro himself in the entire game.
In Super Princess Peach, there is an enemy called 'Starfish' that is elusive. It looks like Starfy with a pair of sunglasses, clearly based off of Starfy and his love of sunglasses.
There is an enemy in Kirby Dreamland 3 that looks like Kirby called Batamon. There's no way to interact with it however.
So that's why there wasn't a guest character in SCIII. I guess KOS-MOS counts in a weird way though.
That's neat, I'll have to try that out next time. I rarely play as Jigglypuff.
The user manual for the first Killzone game contained several screenshots of the game. One of the screenshots in the manual showed the name of a profile called Shooterman. If you use this as your profile name you can unlock all the campaign levels instantly.
I really hope there are lufia players in this thread
In Lufia The Legend Returns, when you collect all the dragon eggs and fight the egg dragon, you can kill him instantly buy using a normal potion on him during the fight.
I bet she died in the 7 hour war.
>The AI in FEAR are not very complex nor intelligent when looked directly at
Do you actually know how AI in games work? because what you described is a relatively "complex" and "intelligent" AI.
Yes, I have read the design principles of the FEAR AI system, I understand that it is the AI in tandem with the level design that makes it such an intuitive system. That doesn't mean the AI isn't impressive, it just means it wouldn't be as impressive without the map layout to give it context.
In ES: Oblivion, if you shoot an enemy with a bow and arrow and immediately turn around and sprint forward, the body will catapult in front of you resulting in a hilarious ragdoll effect.
Standing around without moving for around 10 minutes in the first two Destroy All Humans! games makes the screen go black and white and a comfy 50's song comes on
In about 1/3 of the copies of Sonic Adventure 2 has a game breaking bug that is unavoidable. It takes place at the very end of the game when you play as Eggman. You drop through the floor as soon as his part of the level starts and you can't avoid dying over and over again.
In Conker's Bad Fur Day's multiplayer vs shit, throwing knives are pretty much just better shotguns because if you run right up to people and fire you're guaranteed an instant kill headshot regardless of where you're looking, which is the primary function of the shotgun.
The only difference is it doesn't shoot them in half and leave a stumbling pair of legs behind.
In The World Ends With You, after you beat the main story, Mr. H's store will sell one of the seven Black Planet pins. Which one he sells actually varies based on some variable from the DS Phat you are playing the game on, so in theory if you had enough DS systems you could just buy all the Black Planets
For whatever reason, all DS Lites cause him to sell Black Mercury. Not sure what happens with a DSi or 3DS though.
If you get 16 people to fire rocket launchers at the bilboard, the golden warthog will fall out of it.
Wonderful 101 has a unique quicktime failure where Wonder Pink is called on her phone and talks for a few seconds before the speech is sped up and the screen goes black. However, if you fail that event 10 times in a row, the call is no longer sped up, revealing a three minute long conversation where Wonder Pink and Wonder Cheerleader expresses their frustration with "Joe" standing up Wonder Cheerleader on their third date. This is a reference to Viewtiful Joe and how it never got a third game in the series.
In Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow, if you knock a guy out and leave him under a body of water, he'll drown and die.
I've never played another Splinter Cell game so I wouldn't know if this was in the others as well.
Naughty Dog designed a fighter called Way of the Warrior for the 3DO, with Universal Studios publishing the game, and it was made on their final stand. If it wasn't a success, they would of have to shut down.
It was a success, and that Universal studio made a contract to make Crash Bandicoot for Playstation, etc.
In SRW UX, if Liber Legis attacks Demonbane with Shining Trapezohedron, and Demonbane counters with its own Shining Trapezohedron, the game crashes.
This could be a reference to an even in the VNs where those two attacking each other with their Shining Trapezohedronz basically breaks the universe. Either that or it's a really cool coincidence. With Banpresto's track record of weird bugs it's hard to tell.
Literally any factoid about video games is useless you permavirginerds
Arkham City tells you this if you have tutorial prompts turned on, and mentions that it's not as stealthy as opening them manually. I don't think the slide kick existed in Asylum
Oh, Naughty Dog also shared a ton of rendering tech with Insomniac during the development on Ratchet and Clank. It's often falsely claimed they just rebuilt Naughty Dog's engine, but Insomniac actually just wrote the rendering code into their own engine.
Also, No More Heroes has a scene where the main dude's sister turns up. It speeds up like a video tape over the dialogue to match the game's humor, but it actually goes on about how the sister was raped and forced into prostitution or something like that.
Every copy of Donkey Kong 64 came with an N64 Expansion Pak (black cartridge with a red top you put in the front of your N64) because there was an unavoidable game breaking bug if it was played without one
>There is a painting of the Skull Knight in Drakengard.
holy shit where, tell me, I need to see it
I remember exploiting this because
I was a scrub and would die if I didn't retreat
Me too Anon, I'm pretty hype for the sequel.
I think it's common knowledge. It's actually already been mentioned in this thread.
In Buu's Fury if you eat all of the senzu beans you get to heal Videl during the tournament and then go back, the game will still act as if you delivered them and you will have the maximum amount of senzu beans in your inventory afterwards.
They are nothing spectacular, let alone impressive
They're not bad by any means either but people only tout them as BEST AI EVAR because the game has very good level design and randomized elements in the AI's behavior, a fact commonly overlooked
Another one. In Metro 2033, at D6, right when you finish activating the motors and return to the rangers there's a computer screen you can use that lets you control a machine gun turret.
Also, in Dark Star, you can see a mummified corps of a woman stuck on the walls.
Also pic related is outside one of the levels with Bourbon.
In one of the lower levels of D6, once you're reaching the control room, when you have to activate the rail cart to push the door open, if you stand in front of it and crouch you will phase through the cart and inside, right under the lever is a skull.
You can actually see the kremlin stars from outside the library if you stand near the statute of Dostoyevsky. In the novel looking at them supposedly made you go insane.
There's a bunch of strange shit in 2033. I'm having a hard time remembering a lot of them though.
Against the final boss in Phantom Hourglass, you can counter his hurricane spin with your own spin attack. Doing this instantly sends you into the clashing sequence where you have to rub the screen.
If you properly time a jump and a regular attack with the staff in Dark Messiah, it's actually possible to perform the standing power attack without readying the stance.
In Wario World, the final boss has a second (and more difficult) phase in the Japanese copies.
The level Fungi Forest was originally planned for Banjo Kazooie, but was used for Donkey Kong 64 instead. (I think, could be wrong on this one)
I always wondered why their faces looked familiar.
That game makes sense now. I always wondered why it was so different.
The whole story with Naughty Dog and Crash Bandicoot is amazing.
>They exploited so many tricks and hacks that not even Sony's internal developers could make a game that looked and ran as well as Crash did at the time
Gamma in Sonic Adventure 1 cannot touch any body of water, even the pool at the hotel and the ocean in the Chao Gardens.
It's implied it might have been planned for BK, but was moved over the DK64 as it might have fit the theme better.
Also Banjo used to have a picture of Donkey Kong on his wall, and it would have had the secret puzzle.
You can also skip worlds in the game.
After being swallowed by Monstro and watching the first cutscene, you can leave via Gummi Ship as soon as you can control Sora again.
If you finish the first half of Hollow Bastion and come back to Monstro, there is new dialogue between Sora and Riku, the latter who is supposed to have disappeared.
Also, if you complete Deep Jungle before Wonderland, Maleficent captures Snow White instead of Alice.
At the very beginning of the game in Paper Mario for N64 before the castle you can get into shy guy's toxbox by sprinting against the door of the building and getting out of the character freeze at the "its locked" prompt when it shows and immediately sprinting and going through to the next zone, resulting in you entering the house after the screen fades to black. The shy guy will show up and completely ignore you and the cinematic where he reveals the box plays anyways. You will still likely be unable to kill any of the enemies and will lose to bowser no matter what
Speaking of Naughty Dog...
They made an isometric RPG for the Genesis called "Rings of Power" that actually featured a nude code. You had to hold a bunch of buttons on controller 2 while turning the system on.
All DS Lites as well as the red Mario Kart limited edition DS.
The variable it looks for is overwritten by the system firmware number, the Mario Kart limited edition DS and all models released after it have a slightly different firmware.
For this same reason, playing Mario Kart DS on a non-Mario Kart DS original model DS will actually give an alternate startup sound when reaching the title screen, ironically the alternate startup sound was SUPPOSED to be the Mario Kart DS limited edition's sound, but since the same firmware was used for the DS lite and all later models, what is supposed to be the standard version of the startup is generally considered the variant version.
Basically yeah, it would crash periodically without the extra memory
In the opening cinematic of Halo 2, in response to the Prophet of Truth's proclamation that the soon to be Arbiter's inability to safeguard Halo was a colossal failure, a Prophet in the Council seats above rises and cries out: "Nay! It was heresy!"
This is the Prophet of Objection.
He is voiced by Bob O'Donnell, father of Martin O'Donnell: the game's audio director, composer, and alien voice actor.
You can hold right click to automatically skip long dialogue and mash left click to quickly skip through short dialogue in Hotline Miami
By holding right click and mashing left click you can get through any and all dialogue/ cut scenes in the game in record time
More than one of the jungle hunter tops have jiggly boobs.
LP3's writing and characterization were good, but that's about it. Hate the redesigns of the classic NEVEC stuff in MP and towards the end when NEVEC's military shows up.
Speaking of MH with guns, Japs got a special Rathalos Mail player model that no one else got. Fuckin japs.
Relative to most other video games I would say they are still "complex" and "intelligent" irregardless of the fact that they made the level designs work so well with the AI.
Not to mention almost all games AI react within the context with their environment, the fact FEAR does it so well just means that they are a well designed AI. Simply put, AI implementation is just as important a part of an AI as the actual coding of the AIs responses.
Sure they aren't the best example of an AI in video games, but it is definitely up there.
On one of the PS1 WipEout games, you can load up the game and then remove the disc from the console and replace it with a music CD and you can play the game with the music playing in the background.
Hitting the painting hanging on the wall of the manager's office on Big Bank will reveal a hidden safe behind it
This safe frequently has a key card inside it, as well as a bitten cheese sandwich
umm...in MGS3 you can actually clearly see Eva's nipples
everyone knows you can look at her in the survival viewer and make her jiggle but if you put the x-ray on and move her you can see nip
fapped to it a good number of times
Yes, but it was generally with the game's ingame soundtrack. Some other Playstation titles did it as well, like Vigilante 8.
SotN actually has a unique song that can only be heard by putting the game in a CD player.
one night my bro and I were fooling around with noclip in HL1 and found just a normal room...textured floors and walls but nothing happening inside. first chapter I think
In Dreadout, there are three other ghosts/demons that you can encounter if you don't go into the school when it gets dark and you backtrack to the car.
If you wait long enough in the Fatal Frame pause screens (any of the games do this) there is a creepy 'screensaver' that plays after a few minutes (creepy handprints, ghost face, etc.).
I don't have the gif, but this will do.
Vigilante 8 2nd offense is actually the game I listened to the most on the cd player. Road to Madness 5evar
Ratchet's tail was originally going to be covered up by his armour in Ratchet and Clank 2. There was a huge shitstorm about this on Insomiac's forums from R&C's furry fanbase. Insomniac decided to keep his tail exposed in order to make the furries happy.
If you noclip into the GMan's briefcase you see the inside is textured
All of Valve's games do that. It's super common of them to nail down hard on memory conservation.
Hell, playing HL2 with a modern monitor will show you how fucked up the crossbow looks because of this.
Cause it's pretty much the same game.
AX itself is playable on Dolphin because the Triforce hardware was basically just a Gamecube. Sort of like how Sega's Naomi cabinets were Dreamcasts.
Holy shit, I found this out when playing. One of the funniest events. We had a good laugh that day.
I get upset when people praise Red Dead Redemption and so few people know about Red Dead Revolver. Such a good fucking game.
The first cutscene of Crash Bandicoot 1 has Crash say the words "Uh oh." as he is about to fall out of Cortex's lair, also apparently Tawna was going to get a sex change according to Cortex.
At the end of Borderlands: The-Pre Sequel, if you wait for all the credits to roll you will see "At least you're not Anthony Burch" on the bottom left corner of the screen in small font.
What are you talking about? You leave the castle after this dialogue.
In Super Mario 64 there is a short cut
If you die while in not in a painting level you respawn just outside the castle entrance on the bridge
From where you first spawn when you start the game up it is faster to run over to the lake than it is to reach the door
If you drown yourself in the shallows of the lake you effectively reduce the distance you have to travel to get inside the castle
A bit of useless information for your map. Fallout 3 took place in more than just DC. It was a large chunk of Maryland as well. Off the top of my head, I know the police station is located in Germantown, and Olney is visitable as well. Based on the scale they used, and the location of other real life locations the Oasis is where the town of Damascus should be.
I live in Germantown, and despite all its flaws, Fallout 3 was interesting as hell to me being set where I live.
STALKER SOC is so full of shit like that because of how long it was in development hell.
Speaking of I need to play Lost Alpha, I downloaded it when it came out and I still haven't touched it.
in Cod4-Blops the last stand perk gives you the absolute max amount ammo for your side arm and if you're picked back up or if you pick up the gun from an enemy player using the perk you can keep it
There is a structure off in the distance of the Dam level in Goldeneye for the N64 that is inaccessible through normal means
This was originally planned as an expanded mission objective for higher difficulties and was scrapped, but the towers can still be seen in the distance with the sniper rifle, which you were likely supposed to use to eliminate threats over there before traveling over by boat
In pokemon, Chandelure has the highest base special attack of any non legendary or mega
>In pokemon gold/silver, if you go to the house that used to be the pokemon daycare in the previous generation in Kanto, it will be locked and with a sign that says "House for Sale... Nobody lives here."
this is completely untrue, that's where you get the Cleanse Tag in gold and silver.
In James Bond: Agent Under Fire there's a hidden sniper rifle on one of the balconies that you can grab right before you view the shower cutscene.
I spent several minutes zooming in on the hologram's tits.
Get on my level, faggot.
Also, enjoy this list of Gen 1 trickery.
In Postal 2, the taser works to knock out everything humanoid, including the zombies.
You can cash your check on Monday and then steal from the vault. The police will have to deal with the robbers and you can get away scott free.
You can eat catnip to become one with the Speed Force, slowing down time.
The cheat to unlock all levels in THUG 2 is d3struct
The cheat to unlock some of the characters in THUG 2 is costars!
and the cheat to unlock Phil Margera in THUG 2 is aprilsman
I beat the game twice only to have my save file get corrupted because it froze while saving.
The worst part is you have to beat it on every difficulty to get everything
And there's two different campaign modes
thats clever. I wonder if they have a room in their IRL offices that looks like a post apocalyptic mess. Dev studios have the most wasteful things inside them like pool tables and shit so I wouldn't be surprised.
Hell I'd like a Dev Studios thread just talking about how they are pretty much clubhouses for nerds.
I'm under the impression everyone who cares knows that though, so I didn't think it was worth mentioning. I only even brought up my point because the map that was posted only had DC colored in.
In fact, now that I'm remembering FO3 better, you visit the Pentagon as well, and that's in Virginia, not DC, though, that is just a case of being on the wrong side of a river, and you wouldn't be able to tell if it was included or not from that nationwide image that was posted a while ago.
Basically, worked for a smaller studio that will go unnamed, but basically it was like a clubhouse where we'd shoot the shit and hang out while occasionally making vidya. Still got all our deadlines and milestones and had a blast doing it. They probably still have the MAME cabinet I put together for us if they are still around, I keep meaning to go and visit and see if my bros still work there.
I can't believe there are actually people who think like this.
In the game files there's an alternate map texture that show there being much more of DC explorable, as in more city on the east bank of the Potomac. Everything pretty much ends at Rivet City but you can see there is much more landmass and buildings on the other bank.
>in Gerudo Valley
>when the bridge repairs itself
You fucking idiot
In resident evil 2, if u check the dead body twice in the hallway where the first licker appears l you will be rewarded with handgun bullets. Same applies if u check the body in the crows hallway. Also if u check wesker's desk 50+ times or so it gives you film b.
NO FUCK WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
YOU AND YOUR COMPLETELY REASONABLE OPINION THAT YOU'RE ENTITLED TO IS SUMMONING BUTTHURT ANTI-GENERATION 1 FAGS
NO FUCK WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FUCK
THE POKEMON FANDOM IS NOT TO BE TOYED WITH YOU DONUT
In The Saboteur, after completing the first mandatory mission, you can freely travel through Paris. If you manage to unlock the Aurora Machine Gun upgrade before going to your room and having the flashback to Saarbrucken, it appears on the Aurora during the race. Using it to kill Dierker causes the credits to roll before giving you a unique mission failure message.
in infamous 2 you gain every ability after completing the game and going into sandbox for the second time.
there is also a side quest where a girl kisses you if you gave away the food in the first moral choice of infamous 1.
the ice titan is the only enemy aside from the beast and nyx capable of surviving multiple lightning strikes
draining power from the storm in the second last mission knocks away enemies around you
Did you just call a nigga a fuckin donut?
Maybe people with shitty opinions should keep it to themselves.
Yeah I don't think they were sure if they were bringing over Sonic Adventure 1 to the Gamecube at that point. Cream shows up in Sonic Adventure DX for Gamecube (Sonic Adventure 1) in the same way that Big did because Sonic Advance 2 came out around then.
I said sonic adventure to much in this post
I got into a debate with someone on reddit about this.
It ended with him ragequitting about how he was going to get a rimjob from his boyfriend and he told me about how he was reading my butthurt posts while he was getting a rimjob while playing a Sid Meier game.
I can never get into retarded 90's kid gen 1 fights without thinking of rimjobs now.
He jerked off to charmander on the reddit furry board too.
Reddit is scary.
>You can shoot propane tanks right before landing on them to survive falls that would normally kill you. You can use it to skip things like the Sugarmill elevator in Hard Rain.
>You can take out your medkit and press M1 and E to revive a teammate and heal yourself at the same time.
>Crouching under water deep enough to drown you will reduce your health. When you get below %50, eat your pills and stand back up. Your health will come back and you won't lose your temporary health from the pills, giving your survivor 150+ health. (multiple bottles of pills can stack for over 200 health)
>Thrown and dropped items like gascans, propane tanks, ect will break Smoker tongues and Tank rocks. Facing the Smoker while looking straight down will cause the held item to break the tongue when you're forced to drop it.
>Hanging from a ledge and being helped back up will give you 30 health and will not kill you if you are black and white
>Using voice chat as a Hunter in VS mode will cause your hunter to growl whether you're crouched or not
>Cablin in the Woods was supposed to have a L4D crossover campaign but it was canceled after the studio went bankrupt. The special infected from the game even made a cameo in the storage boxes in the movie (pic related)
