  1. From the album: Classic Gaming Expo 2012 (CGX 2K12) Photo Album

    "To celebrate the sale of 20 million PlayStation 2 consoles, Sony unveiled limited edition color (alleged to be 666 of each) systems at the 2000 Tokyo Game Show. Labeled "The 2001 European Automobile Collection", these systems can be found in "super red", "metallic silver", "astral blue", "snow white", and "light yellow". The case, controller, and system stand are the only unique items in this otherwise stock PS2."
  2. When it comes to games and movies, I enjoy finding the different features and details that were hidden in each respective form of entertainment. Whether it is something that needs to be glitched into the game, or if I have to go through the same scene a million times. It doesn't really matter to me. I just love finding all there is to find in a game. But sometimes, these sorts of secrets are hidden right under our noses. Things we should have noticed, but our minds just refused to grasp. These sorts of things are even more fun to figure out because you just feel so stupid for not noticing them before. Today, we're going to be discussing five of them. They aren't the most amazing finds, but that doesn't make them any less cool. -------------------------- Fighting Fire With Water In Metal Gear Solid 3 When it comes to the Metal Gear Solid series, you're practically stumbling through secrets just by playing the game normally. Odds are pretty high that you'll go through the entire series without even noticing them. Just go to Youtube and type in something along the lines of "secret codecs" you'll be sitting at your computer listening to conversations for the next few hours just on that one search. Why exactly did the Fury choose to fight Snake in a building covered in exposed water pipes? And on top of those secrets, there are also secret ways to fight each game's boss characters. We all know that when fighting Psycho Mantis you're suppose to switch controller ports, but did you know that you could also shoot his mask off of a statue to confuse his telekinesis? There are plenty of secrets like that peppered in, but the one I never found was in the fight against The Fury. When I fought him, I just tucked myself into a corner and took pot shots at him as he flew through the flames. I couldn't go anywhere because literally everything around me was on fire. I did beat him with a stamina kill after a while, but it took forever. Now a few years have passed and I've figured it out. You can shoot the pipes on the walls to put out the flames. There was nothing even hinting at that, but it should have been so obvious! So next time you fight The Fury and you're tucked into a corner fighting for your life, just remember to shoot the freaking water pipes! -------------------------- Promotional Art Holds So Many Secrets Seriously, take a look at the image posted below of Duke Nukem. Really look at it. The image is staring you right in the face and odds are you're still missing out on some of the details. No matter how long you look at the image, you just can't see the cowboy hat falling off of Duke's head until someone mentions it to you. Duke ain't got time for hats. He's too busy ruining his reputation! Whoa, where did that come from? That image of Duke has been around for years and years and you've probably seen it a fair number of times thanks to the Duke Nukem Forever craze that had been sweeping the internet for more than a decade, so why are you just now seeing the cowboy hat? I don't understand it, but Duke isn't alone when it comes to stuff like this. Just look at the cover art for Doom. There is so much happening in the image that you can't even tell exactly what you're looking at while you're looking at it. Just to cover a few points, Doomguy is only holding one gun even though it looks like he's holding two at first glance, there's a second Doomguy running up to save him from the horde of cyber demons, and also you're probably neither of them. RIP AND TEAR RIP AND TEAR! Take a look at the bottom left corner of the image. You see that demon looking at you with that stupid smirk on his face? Well look to the right of him. You should see a gun sticking out of the bottom of the image. The argument is that the gun you're seeing is supposed to represent you the player, but it could also be the gun of a monster off frame. So you're either in a demon moshpit about to rip and tear, or you can finally say John was the zombies. -------------------------- Dormin Is Nimrod And Other Obvious Connections In the game Shadow of the Colossus, you play a character who has just made a deal with a disembodied voice that goes by the name Dormin to bring back some dead girl. The deal is that if you manage to defeat all sixteen colossi spread across the forbidden land, then Dormin will bring the girl back to life. Did I mention Dormin resides in a ruined tower that reaches into the Heavens? Did I also mention that Dormin backwards is Nimrod? Now, I'm not going to pretend I know a whole bunch about different stories from the Bible, but I know enough to put two and two together. Nimrod was a powerful warrior who may or may not have had a hand in the construction of the Tower of Babel. If this isn't supposed to be the Tower of Babel then I'll really be surprised. The Tower of Babel of course was a tower that reached up into the Heavens. Do you see where I'm going with this? In the game, the Forbidden Tower that holds Dormin is the absolute tallest structure in the game. Just to stand a chance at climbing it you have to beat the game four times. That should give you a pretty good idea about how tall it is. Why there aren't any other obvious ties between the story of Shadow of the Colossus and the stories of the Tower of Babel and Nimrod, it should be obvious to anyone the connection that was being made. But despite all of this, I just never saw it. Someone else had to explain it to me and I felt like an idiot for not noticing something in a game I played so many times. -------------------------- The best secret is always the one hidden right under your nose. Can you think of some other obvious secrets that were sitting in plain sight all these years? Things that seemingly nobody noticed? Why not mention them in the comments below? As always, thanks for reading.
  3. While everyone seems to focus on Capcom's Resident Evil series when it comes to horror, there are still other games in the genre from the company. One game from them that was very much overlooked for the PlayStation 2 is Haunting Ground. And out of seemingly nowhere, it will be making its appearance on the PlayStation 3 sometime in the near future. The ESRB has given a rating for Haunting Ground for the PS3, most likely meaning it will be an HD re-release or PS2 classic on PSN. Capcom has not yet mentioned exactly which one it will be. For those unaware of what Haunting Ground is about, it's the story of a girl named Fiona who is trapped in an eerie castle after being in a car accident. With the loyal German Shepherd, Hewie, by her side, they must escape from the castle's inhabitants -- who all seem to want something from Fiona. Even on the PS2, Haunting Ground features graphics that are, in my opinion, even better than the graphics of some games of this generation. It should be a real treat to see how they fare on the PS3! Have you ever played Haunting Ground? Are you interested in getting a PSN download of it?

    Persona 3 FES

    Persona 3 FES is supposed to be on PSN sometime today and I can't wait to download it. I'm not a huge fan of digitally downloaded games, but I'm willing to take the $10 risk on this since I never played a Persona game. I've played several Shin Megami Tensei games, so I'm hoping Persona is similar to what I am expecting. Anyone else going to download this?
  6. Games do an excellent job at telling stories and making us laugh or cry and making us happy or sad. However, sometimes video games aren“t always great to play in front of others. While it may be awesome to play something like a Zelda or Mario game in front of your family (I know my own dad enjoys watching my siblings and I play those two series) and have them enjoy it just as much as a movie, games like the ones I“ll be discussing here may not be. Whether it“s something extremely sexual or just plain awkward, you might want to think twice before letting grandpa watch you play any of these games. Though perhaps you're masochistic and would enjoy the embarrassment. Nonetheless, read on and find out exactly what will get your face redder than a tomato. Nintendogs While the Nintendogs series may not be something that suits the tastes of many gamers out there, I“ve still found the games highly enjoyable. Plus, let“s face it: who can resist such adorable puppies and kitties? It“s not as difficult to clean up after them or give them baths, either. There is something that these little critters possess that is just as infuriating as their real-life counterparts, however… and that“s the inability to understand commands 100% of the time. To get to the point, what“s embarrassing about this game is that your family and friends are going to start thinking you“ve lost a couple of your marbles when they start hearing you shout “PUMPKIN, SIT DOWN!†over and over since your darling puppy can“t seem to differentiate between that and rolling over. Final Fantasy X Final Fantasy X is one of the best games I“ve ever played. It features incredibly beautiful music, environments, characters, and a great story. However, like any other game, it can have its bad moments. One of which is the infamous laughing scene between the main characters, Tidus and Yuna. While the laughing is meant to be forced and not serious, those around you watching probably don“t know that and you“ll soon find yourself slinking down into your chair until the cutscene is over. No More Heroes Let me tell you something. If I had known what I was getting into that Christmas day when I popped my new copy of No More Heroes into my Wii and started playing in front of my siblings, I wouldn“t have done it then. As soon as the game began, I was greeted with bloodshed and colorful obscenities that made my face turn a brilliant red as my siblings watched on. It didn“t stop there, either. I soon found that in order to recharge my weapon, the beam katana, Travis had to thrust it up and down in front of him in a way that mimicked masturbation. Because of this, I needed to find a save point, and quickly, before anybody saw any more of what was going on. The cherry on top: saving by means of using the toilet. I didn“t play the game for a long time after that, but when I did, I blasted right through and enjoyed it immensely (and played without anyone else in the room, of course). Bayonetta Bayonetta is an odd game and maybe it“s not quite a shock that it“s on this list. It is well known that the game presents an abundance of sexual themes that may cause for awkwardness amongst you and those watching (poses, crotch shots, and the appearance of some enemies). However, there“s some other unusual moments that will leave non-gamers (and maybe even you) scratching their head. The most discussed is the fact that Bayonetta attacks with her hair, and not just that, but that her whole outfit is composed of her hair. It may not be obvious at first, but it“s soon realized when you use her climax attack and witness her hair-clothes coming off her body and spiraling around her. Try explaining that to your folks. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 Persona 4 is another one of my favorite games that made its way on this list. However, it“s not absent of any risqué and uncomfortable moments. It retains the same demons (or personas as they“re known in this game) as the rest of the series, such as the ever-popular Mara, that may get some questioning looks from your family. This game is a bit different from the other entries in the series, though, with how it treads through the lives of everyday teenagers. Thus, it brings typical teenage shenanigans and problems (such as questioning sexuality) to the table more often and makes that present in the game“s characters, bosses, and dungeons. It makes up for it with some hilarious moments everyone can relate to, though. Honorable Mentions Eternal Sonata – “Why is Chopin fighting monsters?†Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty – naked Raiden doing cartwheels Enchanted Arms – overly flamboyant main character and incredibly bad voice acting Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World – the two main characters will make anyone cringe (and you even more so with others watching) and “Courage is the magic that turns dreams into reality!†What are some embarrassing games that you have played?
