Turns out all other easter eggs in other games are a bit different from the ones you would find in classic LSL games. and are ironically more along the lines of Easter's actual reason: fertility.

Heh. The first time I found out what the term "Easter Egg" meant for videogames was in Leisure Suit Larry 6. Turns out all other easter eggs in other games are a bit different from the ones you would find in classic LSL games. and are ironically more along the lines of Easter's actual reason: fertility.

The only Easter Egg I can think of is what happens when you get all 50 Red Jewels in Illusion of Gaia for the SNES. I won't post it here, in case I get banned for using spoilers to Troll.

Spoilers usually have a grace period 2 years after being released, so spoil away.

Re: Hunting for Video Game Easter Eggs?

OMG, I remember being deathly scared of Freedan's EarthQuaker attack. IDR why, though.

Now, raise your hand if, when you saw the scene for the very first time, you thought you were going to fight off the Jackal as he was burning to death in the Pyramid.

*raises his own hand, so does his brother, who has played the game*

I was like, "Oh, hell, a surprise boss fight. Great."

LOL, screw all of you!

Why be told Easter eggs when I can just goggle it...?

InfophileSony's customer service has always been crap, but up till now it's been manageable crap. A few cases of people having to pay for being hacked at worst, the Other OS removal... This one is going to be much worse for them.03/28/2015 - 1:34pm
WymorenceWhen did Sony start doing the ransomware stuff...? other than the old BMG rootkit stuff that is.03/28/2015 - 12:45pm

Papa MidnightSure thing!03/27/2015 - 9:00pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm
Matthew Wilsonsome people are thinking we might have a Twilight Princess situation on our hands, what do you guys think?03/27/2015 - 8:01pm
MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
MaskedPixelanteYay for it not being a buggy mess like AC Unity. Boo that it got delayed til November 2016.03/27/2015 - 7:07pm
Andrew EisenAgreed. Considering we've seen nothing of the game (and those who did see it last E3, said it was super duper early) I would be quite surprised to see it this year.03/27/2015 - 5:28pm
Matthew WilsonI am sure star fox is 2016 too.03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
ZippyDSMleeThe primary reasons I would get a Nintendo system is Zelda and Metroid, Metroid prime collection was beyond words awesome even if 3 was the weakest one. I played TWP on the emulator I have Skyward Sword but like TWP I been putting it off…. LOL03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
Daniel LewisI actually thought star fox would be the game to be delayed,hopefully that isn't as well!03/27/2015 - 5:13pm
Daniel Lewiswoah post shared at the same time matthew,you just beat me!03/27/2015 - 5:11pm
