Videogame facts that blow your mind (SuperMarioBros. SHOCKING SECRET INSIDE p #70)

Just found something cool pointed out in a youtube comment.
Listen to this:
Phoenix Wright: Reminiscence - Classroom Trial
Now compare with this:
Viewtiful Joe: Ending
Wow, that's awesome. That can't be coincidence, as they're exactly the same, and both games are made by Capcom, of course.


Here's another example of a music remix appearing in a completely different game:

The music when you fight a boss in Donkey Kong Land (Game Boy) and Skerries from Blast Corps. (N64)
 
This one is probably common knowledge, but for those who haven't played it, Banjo-Tooie is full of over-the-top innuendo and cheeky allusions. This is the most well-known example:




There's also a couple of videos on YouTube that show a whole bunch of them, but since they're quite long, have shitty music, and are edited really badly, I'll just link straight to the part of the video that shows what is undoubtedly the most guilty offender:


The rabbit you can hear taking a shit and complaining about splashback, overflowing, stinging, etc.

I've seen this posted many times referencing it as a penis, look at the damn thing, that is no penis. It looks more like the front of that hoover thing from the teletubbies :

 
Vacuum cleaners. Those things are called vacuum cleaners.

Without the little sections representing the A, B, X, and Y buttons, it wouldn't look odd at all.
That doesn't really qualify as closely-resembling to me.
Yeah, but since they are there...? What the hell is your point?

It's a penis. I could maybe write it off as coincidence if it were in any other game, but I don't see how it can be questioned considering how chock-full of genitalia references the Banjo games are.

It means that it resembles the controller, but not really that closely, which is what I originally said.

It was even less apparent considering the original picture was upside-down.


And it's even worse, since not nearly enough people are laughing at the "YOU ARE GAY, LOLS" message that's now up there. I mean damn, even the text's color almost matches the controller's color. :lol

I'm never going to hear "NAUGHTY NOO-NOO" in quite the same way again.

If that looks like a penis to you you need to go back to 5th grade biology class or look down into your pants.

Not that closely?



(I agree that you have to reverse the picture, but everything must be at the exact right place when you see it from upside)

How many scribbles and crude renditions of a penis have you seen that look completely anatomically correct?

Man, I actually can't believe we're having this conversation. How bizarre.

What the hell!:lol

Nintendo probably has the meaning of life itself stored away in some Mario 3 tune or something.

Same here. I always used the grapple beam to kill this boss. I thought that was how it's suppose to be done.
Yeah I remember back in the day my bro and I had such a tough time beating this guy. Never EVER thought about using the grappling beam. We got the game when it first came out and it wasnt until I visited GAF a couple of years ago that I discovered this and my mind was completely blown.

Same here, though he isn't really that hard to beat without the grapple, kinda similar to Ridley.

Edit: When you were still a kid though? God damn, that was tough shit.
 
I can see how people would logically come to the conclusion that they need to use the grapple beam since that's the world where you get it.

I'm more unthinking, I guess, so when I saw that the super missiles seemed to be working, I went with that. :)
