In the first Charlie’s Angels movie when Drew Barrymore falls, naked, out of the villian’s house, the kids whose backyard she fell in, seem to be playing two player FFVIII.

Devil May Cry beginning and other small stuff

Posted by Oneself in 01-28-2008, 05:45 PM

Devil May Cry was a Resident Evil game at first. The “air” combat and juggles etc. started because of a bug in Onimusha (if I remember correctly).

At the start of God of War, Jaffe first wanted to have an annoying fairy, à la Zelda, that would have explained the game’s mechanics in the first level. Kratos would have violently killed that fairy before the end of the level.

MK: Shaolin Monks started out as an SCEA game. They built the engine and had a game running called something like Shaolin Monks, I can’t remember the exact name, but there was “Monks” in the title. The game wasn’t good enough and they sold the code etc. to the team that created MK:SM. Lots of the animations done for the earlier game can be seen in MK:SM as well as some graphic elements and probably some backgrounds etc.

A few Tekken and Mortal Kombat facts

Tekken was going to be called: “Rave Wars“. Namco still kept the name as one of Law’s moves.

Tekken 4 newcomer boxer was originaly called: “Dean Earwicker“. Namco changed it not long before arcade release because fans laughed it off. Shame.

Mortal Kombat at first was called” “Dragon Fire“, but everyone knows that.

Van Damme was gonna play Cage in MK1 game. It didn’t work out but Cage still ended up looking like Van Damme from Kickboxer (or something).

In MK Movie Johnny Cage was gonna be originally played by Brandon Lee. He died thou.
