As game related as FedEx is, but... The Carrefour symbol is also interesting. Some people see an arrow, some people see a fish, but it's in fact a white "C".

I have always found it interesting that Wind Waker Link is the only Link with any siblings, all the other one are orphans (practically, unless raised by uncles or grandma's, never parents). I wonder why they decided WW Link should be different.


Edit: BTW, can anyone else not access their private messages?

Holy... considering this is a logo I'm used to see, instead of the fedex one, my mind is truly blown for not realizing it before.

Anyone who has ever played Lode Runner for the NES has no doubt noticed that the enemies in the game bare a striking reseblance to Bomerbman. This actually marked the first time Hudson used that design in any capacity.

In any case, when you finish Bomberman for NES, he turns into a human and becomes the main character from Lode Runner! Evidently, Bomberman was a prequel to Lode Runner, and the Runner and Bomberman ARE THE SAME CHARACTER~!!!

Here are some pictures from the ending:


The original Famicom Disk System version made it even more apparent:

Finding out that this thing

was supposed to be a goomba during the SMW credit sequence kinda blew my mind. Mushroom -> tomato, wha?

Also, Link's pink hair in LTTP was kinda vexing. I know there's color pallette limitations on sprites, but... that pink color wasn't used anywhere else in the sprite. There's no concievable reason they couldn't have used yellow or brown.

My art teacher pointed that out in class years ago. Since then, I can never unsee it.

There are some disturbing "Marlboro" ones.

First

you might be able to see a "K" Now there are 3 of these on the pack
"KKK"

Next

If you read flip the packet and read "Marlboro" backwards you get "orobljew" or "orobl jew"

last

This is the official Philip Morris logo.
This logo appears on the Marlboro pack but it is slightly different


Look in the middle of the horses legs

Someone's going to have to explain both the marlboro one and the GnG one to me.
which part of the Marlboro one?
KKK for ku klux klan

In the middle of the legs you can notice a hooded person with his arm extended, like the Nazi salute.




Mario's tale:
NOA had to prepare the game for American release, which included naming the characters. As the story goes, they were mulling over what to name Jumpman when the landlord, Mario Segale, arrived at the warehouse, demanding the overdue rent payment. When he left, the staff had a new name for Jumpman: "Mario."

I dont know about the K's. But just look in between the horses legs, each of them.. the white space that is outlined by the legs of each. it doesnt matter which horses legs you look at they both have it.

oh snap, the thought that the Carrefour logo could make any sense never even crossed my mind. Just thought they were some fancy arrows. I guess it's the european / south american version of the Fedex arrow.

Minds have been blown, new people were scarred for life by goatse, great thread indeed.

There should be a "goatse in videogames" compendium of sorts.

Miles Prower = Miles Per Hour

I am honestly still overwhelmed at how many people didn't catch this.
I remember when I first bought Sonic 2 and laughed as soon as I saw Miles "Tails" Prower. I then had to explain the pun to my brother. I have a hard time believing anybody who knew his full name didn't get the pun.
