There's a lot of way to finish LTTP in 5 minutes, actually. The dungeons have two "heights",and the trick is to use a glitch to get an incorrect altitude at a position where one of the heights is a wall. It can be done by climbing some stairs backwards, for example.

I prefer the Awakening map glitch:

Also, there's a Dragon Quest that can be finished in a couple of minutes, IIRC, the final boss being just behind a wall in the very first room, and a glitch allows you to go through the room, but it has been years since I saw it for the last time and I can't find the video.

Seems like a rather big glitch oversight of the developers, bringing up the map as you change screens like that :lol

I have a bigger stretch:
Whenever I play MW2, I see my girlfriend (who has a really weird figure) standing behind the soldiers and disappointed that I'm wasting a few more hours of my life playing this game.

Just two little facts from the zelda franchise:

The last four notes of the "Get Master Sword"-Fanfare are a slowed down version of the "Item Get"-Sound.

Twilight Princess has a hidden sword technique from Minish Cap,not mentioned anywhere in the game.You can perform this skill,the roll attack ,by rolling and drawing your sword immidately afterwards.

@Easy_D:OK,made it clear.

You mean the last 4 notes? Now that you mention it. Wtf, why did I never notice this!?

I'm apparently not the first to discover this, but the final part of Buoy Base Galaxy is an upside-down Pokeball:

It certainly blew mine!


Although I admit that it pales in comparison to the LG logo posted on this page. I mean, that's FedEx arrow levels of mindblowing right there. :lol

Pardon if old.



Can't unsee. I swear I can see the eye and nose there. Brings some credence to the whole dual-timeline bullshit?

Death Mountain in TP is the Moon from Majora's Mask.

And actually that fits in nicely with my timeline theory.

It looks like the moon from Majora's Mask crash-landed rightside up into death mountain. The part in the two red circles shows what looks like the nose of the moon and the eye right above it.

Don't know where I got the picture from anymore, and don't have a wii to take a better picture myself.

I played through both MM and TP and I'm still not getting it. Wasn't the moon at the end of Majora's Mask just halted? When did it crash anywhere? And wasn't the whole split timeline deal considered canon?

Not sure about the moon thing, but I know the split timeline thing is canon. Still not seeing the moon in that picture, though.
