this board is supposed to be about videogames so let's have a videogame thread
post interesting videogame facts.
same applies to the ps2 logo. Blew my fucking mind when I found out that if you rotate a 3D version of it it reads "P" and "S". I also found out that PS2 is actually not the name of the console, it's called Playstation Two. Those clever japanese guys found a abbreviation for the name and everyone uses it. Genius.
this was actually a reason why Nintendo didn't want DK in Mario Kart since a guy with the name Drift King would surely be overpowered in a racing game. In order to nerf him they put crates with bananas on the track to distract him because he is in fact a nigger and as everyone knows they love bananas. The game featured bananas ever since even up to the newest installment Mario Kart 8.
Fact: The official HL2 web site still refers to the episodes as a trilogy.
Did you know that there is a hidden wrench in the Ratchet and Clank logo? If you stand a couple meters away and sqint your eyes you might just be able to make it out
In Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 the No Russian mission was originally called No Rushing because the player was not supposed to rush to the end of the mission because there were barely any enemies. However due to reverse psychology most play testers took this as a challenge and started speedrunning the objective over and over until they've routed the perfect path to perform international terrorism within the most efficient amount of time. They renamed it to "No Russian" because the people at Infinity Ward hate Russia.
Did you know that Pokemon was a blatant rip off of Digimon? They just took the mon and put Poke in front of it which was a blatant rip off of the "Pokke Village" in Monster Hunter. The only original thing they did was remove one "k" from "Pokke".
Little known fact: Dark Souls is the hardest game of all time according to a poll
Super Mario is about the independence of Bangladesh.
The red in the flag of Bangladesh symbolizes the blood of those who died for the independence of Bangladesh (extra man in Donkey Kong). The green stands for Lushness (Luigi).
Mario and Luigi stands for the strong independence fighters, and Donkey Kong is the islamist monkey pakis.
