  1. Well, you theoretically have a piece of the TriForce within you and beating ganon without the biggorons sword was a piece of cake with the hookshot.

    • Pffft! Hookshot? I always just used the spin attack with the Master Sword. No sweat. Granted the timing is a little odd at times.
      And… Just to clarify, as far as Ocarina of Time was concerned, there was a definitive difference between Ganondorf and Ganon.

  2. And yet there are constant fake patch notes claiming they REMOVED herobrine.

  3. I have actually done the Aeris trick. It’s done through either a series of choices involving Aeris and Tifa. Every time you can make a choice between doing something with/for Aeris or Tifa, choose Tifa. Take Tifa on the date, don’t buy the flower etc. Missing one option means her death. Following this method will cause Tifa to die in place of Aeris. The other way is the much simpler way: debug mode on the Game Shark. You can re add her to your party, but either way, the story will progress as though Aeris was still dead.

  4. I also remember hearing you could go to the moon in pokemon ruby/sapphire by talking to the guy at the space station.
    Or being able to unlock the thwomp as a character in Mario Kart 64

  5. There’s actually a glitch/cheat that you can do in Pokémon Red/Blue that allows you to capture a Mew, as well as obtain all 151 Pokémon without needing to trade with another player. The trick involves using teleport/fly and opening the in-game menu at just the right moment that you interrupt the animation where an NPC trader approaches you.

    The actual Pokemon that you get is determined by the trainers that you interact with. You’re essentially putting in a “gameshark” code without having an actual gameshark because it flips the value in a hex code between 0 and 151. So when you step on the appropriate spot on the gold nugget bridge after properly setting the trick up, you can grab yourself a Mew, Mewtwo, or just about any other. They all start at level 7 via this trick.

    The glitch is referred to as either the “Mew Glitch” or “Trainer Fly”, and there are lists of the various trainers and who you need to manipulate to unlock the various Pokemon you can acquire. Using this method I got a level 7 Mew, which I immediately used to KO all of Misty’s Pokémon, because his stat scaling is outrageously high.

    • I already linked the bulbapedia page…

  6. Nude Tomb Raider was very real. There are patches for the PC and Mac versions that render Lara in all of her triangular, polygonal glory.

  7. When the MMO Guild Wars 2 was in development and periodically releasing information on their classes for April Fools they released a video of the Commando class. You’d be surprised how many people fell for it.

  8. At a point in the game’s development there was a point where you could get the triforce in Ocarina of Time. Not ever screenshot you see is doctored. A lot of people don’t realize just how much of that game was removed before production. It was supposed to release on the N64 Disk Drive but since that attachment was such a flop, they had to stick with what they could do with the cartridge. The game used to be so much bigger.

  9. I actually found a real way to get Luigi in Mario 64 and this actually works!

    First you gotta plug the controller into the hidden controller port on the back of the system. This only works on later systems that have this feature. They made the game this way on purpose knowing they would make N64s like this later on. Then you get all 120 stars, shoot yourself out of the cannon and fly under the stone bridge 6464 times before the wing cap runs out and if you successfully pull this off, go inside the castle and punch the mirror twice and now you should be able to catch Lakitu and kill him. After Lakitu is dead, Luigi will come out of the door in the back of the room on the other side of the mirror but he’s stuck on the other side. Leave the room and do a hundred and twenty circles around the tree outside the castle that’s farthest from the castle. You’ll know when you see it because if you did all that other stuff right, it will be purple. Then go to the boo area and punch the star statue after killing all the boos in the courtyard. Now the whole top tower of the castle will rotate around automatically revealing a giant glowing crack in the back wall. Shoot yourself out of the canon into the crack blowing up the wall. There will be a pipe inside the wall. Go down that pipe taking you to a whole new world previously undiscovered filled with goombas. Take out all the goombas and a giant rocket ship will come out of the ground. Get on the ship and it will take you to the Comet Observatory from Mario Galaxy. Once there, talk to Rosalina and she will fire up the Observatory laser, blowing up the castle from space. Once the castle is destroyed, you should be able to return to earth. Search through the rubble you find at the castle site but Luigi isn’t there but don’t lose hope. You’re not done yet. At this point you have to turn off the console. Now go to your computer and get a copy of Project 64 and download hacked Mario 64 rom with Luigi in it and quit whining about Luigi not being in Mario 64.

    • No one believes you!

    • Lol! Dude! You are such a Freaking TROLL! XD

  10. Polybius was cooked up by anti-game advocates to prove that games were dangerous. Just like games make you violent, lazy, stupid, and psychotic.

  11. sorry to burst your bubble but Polybius did exit. there are photographs of the cabinet and project MK Ultra.

    • 1. That’s the REVERSE of what “bursting your bubble” means.
      2. No proof=no credibility.

  12. WTF these are nonsence about Polybius.I personaly tried it and it has indeed too many bad or maybe deadly side effects.And the best of all it is a digital drug!

  13. Honestly, the one that I REALLY wanted to see was the “Untold Legend of the Fierce Deity.”
    I LOVED the idea of the game people were advertising. I sincerely wish Nintendo would actually make that game.
