  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.

  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.
