I dunno if anybody’s mentioned this yet, but I noticed it last night. Ever take a look at Remedy’s company logo?

Take a look at what’s inside the ‘R’. Nothing less from the guys who brought you bullet time in Max Payne

Posted by Guybrush Threepwood

The bullet was the first thing I saw.

What’s more amazing is that the letter inside is both an R and a Q. They should do something with that.

The real boss of Doom 2 (that was scary!)

This might work on some people, but probably many of you already know.

Doom II Last Boss:
More of an Easter Egg than anything I suppose, but still interesting nonetheless.

A few cool little secrets from Morrowind

Posted by Bootaaay in 05-28-2008, 12:20 PM

Morrowind has a good few cool little secrets, not sure if any are worthy of mind-blowing status though :p

There are various references to Pokemon in Morrowind – namely, a skeleton called ‘Peke Utchoo’, a 6th house base section named ‘Marowak’s Spine’, a Dwemer ruins section named ‘Weepingbell Hall’ and a burial cavern section named ‘Kakuna Burial’. 

Theres a plant in Vivec named ‘Charles the Plant’ in reference to Chuck the Plant from various Lucas Arts adventure games, Charles gives the player the ingredient ‘Meteor Slime’ in referrence to Manic Mansion. 

Furthermore, there is a NPC named M’aiq the Liar who dispenses useless advice on things such as multiplayer; “M’aiq does not know this word. You wish others to help you in your quest? Coward! If you must, search for the Argonian Im-Leet, or perhaps the big Nord, Rolf the Uber. They will certainly wish to join you.” 

Theres a reference to Empire Strikes Back in Bloodmoon; a dead adventurer hanging upside down in an ice cave, reaching out for his sword on the floor

In Sothelstiem theres a fortune teller named Odfrid White-Lip who predicts the storyline of Oblivion; “When the dragon dies, the Empire dies. Where is the lost dragon’s blood, the Empire’s sire? And from the womb of the void, who shall stem the blood tide?.” 

And finally, there is the corpse of Indiana Jones in a cave crushed under a rock with a note containing his last words;

“My adventures have taken me all over. I have been places that man never knew existed. I have retrieved artifacts and fine treasures that were thought to be myth. From chalices of origins long lost, to gems with power unthought of by man, to powerful religious artifacts that house more interest to madmen than sane. I shall at least take these fine memories with me to the grave.

I shall miss my father. Like me, he was also a man of adventure. I followed in his footsteps, though I was blessed with far more luck than he. Until now, of course. He shall be on his own now. At least I am spared any more jokes about my childhood pet. And my students…how I treasured teaching them the secrets and alien concepts of all things unknown and mysterious. May they be successful.

I do not go down along though. With my crippled body, in this heap of earth, I am accompanied by my trusty leather, my steel, and most of all, my token hat. Unable to reach them under the mass, I know they are untouchable and safe. I will not die alone.


There´s people inside!

Ok, I’m posting this here, simply because out of mindless hours slaving at building these things, on custom maps and not, I have never noticed this.

I obviously didn’t play this game as obsessively as you, so…

what game is that?

Posted by KTallguy

Starcraft, and holy shit I never saw that either.

Posted by Reilly

Never thought there were actually people inside those turrets. They don’t take up people points do they?

Cacildo´s note: It seems this is one of those secrets that only makes any sense to people that played the game for a long long time. I NEVER played Starcraft, but i can see from reactions its some kind of a big (medium) deal to people who played it.

Pirates and brushes

Posted by Supervlieg in 01-29-2008, 11:59 PM

I dont know if it has been mentioned allready.

Guybrush in the Monkey island games was named so because the brush in the software used to draw the frames of his animation was named “guybrush”

Edit:Head blown at @ cloudbush and fedex

Posted by dude

At least get it right: His sprite file was named “guy” until they could think of a better name, and the file filename extension for the program was brush, thus – guy.brush, so his nickname by the team was Guybrush, which they later used for the game. Threepwood was a name for a RPG character of one of the guys working on the game, if I remember correctly.

Halo: originally, the bad guy was supposed to be.. (minor spoiler)

Posted by Jag22 in 01-28-2008, 04:13 AM

In the original Halo Cortana was originally suppose to be the “bad guy”.

“One of the original antagonists for the game was going to be Cortana herself. She was planned to go mad with power after being downloaded into Halo’s control room, which is why in the scene where she’s downloaded into the main control system she starts acting strangely. However, the developers decided against having Cortana betray the Chief and instead made 343 Guilty Spark the antagonist. However, the scene where Cortana is downloaded into the control room remained unchanged, and made a lot of players believe she would go crazy, although it never happened.”

Cacildo´s Note: Never played Halo, so i dont know if this is a big deal or not. Either way, i posted it full.

Deus Ex is another piece of entertainment that “predicted” 9/11

Posted by Kandrick in 01-27-2008, 05:57 AM

Something i read on a interview with one of the Deus Ex designers. 

When you are in liberty city, you can see new york in the background, but you cant see the world trade center towers . People complained to the devs about it, and their response was :

When people complained, we just explained that it had been destroyed by terrorist attacks. We start the game with the Liberty Island statue having been destroyed by terrorists a few years before. We just said that the towers had been destroyed too. And this was way before 9-11. Years. That’s kind of freaky.

Deus Ex was released about 1 year before the real attacks.


Cacildo´s Note: Theres more comics/movies/games/ tv shows that “predicted” 9/11, right? I think i read about some others, but cant remember exactly…
