It's 10 o' clock here in the VA.

So, I have to say: good night, Funnyjunk.

The next one will be posted in the morning, and if you have any suggestions please PM me or post it on my profile, because if you don't then I'll probably skip over it.

And don't forget to thumb up and subscribe for more trivia!

Here's one that's gonna blow your mind:
In the first Metal Gear Solid, there was a boss known as Psycho Mantis. His boss fight is still to this day the most creative boss fight in the history of gaming. Why? Because he could read the player's mind, and dodge every single attack you throw at him. The only way to attack him was to remove the controller from the first port and insert it into the second.

And it doesn't stop there. Psycho could also read the player's memory card, and tell him the games he played! LIKE SERIOUSLY! ASDFGHJKL

there's an other way of beating him.die a bunch of times then call cornell. he will then instruct you on breaking the vases because they are the source of his power. thus making the player able to defeat the boss if they were not able to unplug the controller in port 2

He also tells you to place your control on the floor and claims he will move it. At that point the control would vibrate and move along the floor, which scared the **** out of me when i played this at the age of 9...

Ok feel free to red thumb me to oblivion for being dickhead anon but anyone who doesn't already know this is an uneducated little **** that needs to get their priorities straight. Plus it's not even trivia considering it's a part of the main storyline and therefore required to do for finishing the game.

On that note, he could also fool the players to make them think they accidently switched to TV by making the screen black with the caption "HIDEO" displaying on the top corner.

it was bloody annoying, and he could not read your mind, he just broke the fourth wall in a very annoying way and he would disconect your controller and you had you replug it, that's about it.

That's really not trivia...If you go through MGS (And 4 to an extent) normally, you fight him and he does all of this normally, it's not an easter egg, just really clever programming

Not gonna lie, but that possessed Luigi is ******* terrifying...

There were also some other sprites that weren't used, such as these.

There were also a few maps, If I remember correctly.

Another random fact....
The Gamecube actually had 3D compatible circuitry, Nintendo were going to make and sell a 3D LCD screen you would attach and Luigi's mansion was originally designed in 3D for this. The LCD screen was realistically too expensive to reasonably sell, so the idea was scrapped and Luigi's mansion became how it now is.

Dear Clockworkseven
I ahve an easter egg from Borderlands 2 That i seriously want to see in the next one(or in one of em) and with my Name on it for telling :3
The easter egg is called: Tannis Rides a Fish.


To get this Easter Egg you must Fast Travel to the Sawtooth Cauldron and jump over the edge to reach the sawtooth stilts. Turn left and go through the Smoking Guano Grotto until you reach the Main Street Reservoir. Then head straight until you reach the end of the map killing any enemies that get in your way. Now shoot the five barrels in the following order:

1. The blue barrel in front of you.
2. The red barrel to the right next to the hut.
3. The green barrel in the water (it might take some maneuvering to get the barrel to spawn. Either move closer, or more to the right to get the barrel to spawn).
4. The yellow barrel to the left, behind the barricade.
5. The purple barrel to the right.

I would be so very Happy to se this in one of the Trivia's
BTW i love these,Keep on the good work
And have a Thumbs Up

In Dishonored, the heart you are handed by The Outsider is the heart of the empress. This is hinted towards when you bring the heart to the Assassin Daud and click him. The heart then says "Why have you brought me here? Am I to forgive him for what he has done?", and also when you go to the spymaster "Lord Regent", the heart says "How I misplaced my trust! Now that I can see so clearly I can see how truly blind I was." Additionally, this has been confirmed by the developers.

Also, there are alot of famous voice actors in Dishonored. Callista at Hound Pits Club is voiced by Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister in GoT and queen Gorgo in 300), Emily Kaldwin is voiced by Chloë Grace Moretz (Hit-girl in kick-ass), Piero is voiced by Brad Dourif (Wormtounge in Lord of The Rings). (I bought Dishonored at the summer sale, already played it through at high and at the flooded district in a non-lethal, ghost play through, and i bought the dlc as well. One of my new favorite games, which i happened to miss at release, and i am begging for a sequal, which seems likely in the vast world they created for the dishonored universe).

best stealth/assassin game i´ve ever played. I would say better than assassins creed, due to the many options and choices you can make, that actually have an effect on the progression of the story. I would love if they expanded on that concept though, cuz this is mostly noticed at the couple of last missions.
