THIS, ways to supposedly revive Aries, and Mew related rumors from the first Pokémon are THE most widespread bullshit rumors in the history of gaming.

Anyone who doesn't remember all the SMB1 flagpole nonsense is obviously under 30. EVERY FUCKING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in the late 80s (and probably also very early 90s) had rumors about that. SO common that it was like a universal thing with little kids around that time.

>Legend had it there was a specially modded version of Pokemon Red/Blue, called Pokemon Black - and it's creepy as hell. The game begins very much as Red/Blue did, with one exception - in addition to your chosen starter Pokemon, you have another Pokemon, caled "Ghost" - and you cannot remove it from your party. It's represented by the unidentified Ghost sprite you see before obtaining the Silph Scope, and it knows one move, called "Curse" (although - not the same "Curse" move present in later generations of Pokemon). And when you use Curse on wild Pokemon, the screen will simply go to black and you would hear a low-pitched cry. When the battle screen came back, the opposing Pokemon was gone. When used against a trainer's Pokemon, they would be left with one less Pokeball.
>What was happening was you were actually killing Pokemon. And it gets worse.
>If you used Curse once all the trainer's Pokemon were gone, the overworld trainer sprite would be gone, replaced with a tombstone. Yikes.
>There's more to the game (eventually, the game flashes forward to decades in the future - everyone in the world is dead but you, now an old man. Then Ghost reappears and curses you), but that's not the point of this. The point is - it's not even real. But the incredibly detailed and fascinating story drew in a lot of people. You can still find copies of Pokemon Black (Creepy As Hell Edition) floating around on eBay, and they never are what the legend promises they are.

There we rumors of bullshit unlockable characters in Super Smash Brothers going around my school. A couple I remember are Diddy Kong and James Bond.

>> No.2316204

A few months after Megaman X came out, I found the game on sale, and picked it up. A friend of mine told me about the unlockable Hadouken the next week, and I just kind of rolled my eyes at him. He wrote the instructions on a piece of paper, and told me to try it that night.

Nothing listed in the conditions seemed too ridiculous to pull off, so I tried it out. The second or third time I jumped into the pit at the end of Armadillo's level, I was just about ready to call it a fake.

A few minutes later, I just kind of sat there and laughed at myself. Why does this even work? How would anyone find this on their own if it wasn't in a magazine or something?

I got kind of worried when I put in my password, and didn't have the Hadouken anymore, though. Felt like an idiot when I was trying to show it to my uncle (who was big on Street Fighter at the time), but going through the steps again worked, and we had a good laugh about it.

I think we should have a topic sometime about "that kid" secrets that turn out to be legit.

>> No.2316209

Don't remember which game it was exactly, but on one of the Mario Karts, either SNES or N64, this kid read a shortcut tip in a magazine wrong and thought it was saying that you could turn around in a circle at the start of one of the tracks and it would count as a full lap and you could just do that over and over until you beat the track. He was pretty convinced, but he never got it to work and instead of realizing he had just misunderstood the magazine he thought he was just somehow doing it wrong.

I was in third grade when Pokemon first came to the stated so I was the perfect age to fall for these rumors. Old enough to appreciate them and go online by myself to look them up, but young enough to be naive to believe them.

The "that kid" of my school was named Devon. He had his own pokemon club and you had to take a test to be a part of it. He used to tell us all these crazy rumors and cheats. Shit like how to get the "skip stones" which I guess was his version of the mist stone rumor, how to get Brock and Misty to join you, how to find the "pokebomb" which would reveal the Star Gym in Mt. Moon where you could get Togepi.

I remember him telling us one day about the ultra rod, which you could get if you talked to the guy who gave you the super rod 1000 times. I actually tried this...

I don't know where this started or how, but at our school someone told us that Street Fight 1 didn't exist and SF2 was just called that because they thought it sounded cool. Most of us assumed this was true until years later when MAME came out.

Another kid was certain that Street Fighter II was the sequel to Street Fighter 2010, while others assumed it was a sequel to Final Fight because of the subtitle ("The Final Fight"). Somehow 99% of us thought this was less logical than there being no Street Fighter 1 at all.

That is a quirk in the RNG, and certainly not something intended by the programmers.
Not that it even matters, as it doesn't help you catch a Pokemon anyway, like the widespread rumours claimed. It's just as possible to influence the RNG from a successful catch to a failed attempt, and you'd have no way to tell unless you used savestates. So it's not practical.

Wonder if kids nowadays still make up bullshit rumors about the games they're currently playing. I know it's the age of easily accessible internet and all, but maybe some kids might fall for that shit still.

Then again, with how streamlined and relatively bug-free games are these days, there may not be enough room for kids' imagination to run wild to the extent of coming up with this kind of stuff anymore. The most recent game I can think of that generated some amount of rumors was GTA San Andreas, with the whole bigfoot thing, and that was more among regular gamers on the net than kids on the playground.

My cousin used to lie about shit like this. We always knew he was lying, but he would always stick with the lie. It was really irritating. So one day he was lying about something again, I think he said he had a driver's license because they gave him one at the go-karts or something and he wouldn't take it back so my sister hit him in the shoulder. He still wouldn't rescind his statements about the driver's license so I got mad too and kicked him in the leg. Still wouldn't rescind his fallacious statements. So eventually I was holding him down while my sister was stomping on his chest and stomach and legs while he continued to pathologically lie about having a driver's license at age 10. Eventually I was socking him in the face while he was lying there and he started to cry so we let him go.

For a while in the mid-90's there was a rumor making rounds that Doom 2 had upwards of even 60 levels in it, 30 of them hidden levels. The trick to seeing them all was that in each secret level there was a hidden ending that you needed to find in order to progress to the next level.

>On this super secret version there is traps on levels like a circular saw blade on zengief stage.
>He played Creepy Crawlers vs TMNT video game on PS1 and we better not buy it when they will release it cause it was meh.
>When the N64 got released He was already testing the Super Playstation a 64bits red console,4 pad connectors.
>At his cousin house he watched the Castlevania movie but he don't want to talk about it cause it was so scary the military banned it.
>On stage 2 of Robocop 2 arcade game he could play Robocop 1 game on one of the arcade cab on the stage.
>He played the Super metroid pinball table where the ball can transform into samus and do the same shit as in the game.
>When he was ill with gastroenteritis shitting his pants for a week he told all kid at school that it was a cover up cause he was on a trip to his cousin house who done highscores in 5 games at the arcade and they give them access to a secret arcade place only for elites.

I had a friend like that and knew a couple others. Looking back, they were all probably compensating for a poor home or parents, or had other deep-seated issues that don't make themselves apparent until later in life. These kids always continue this sort of behavior as adults, as they grew up trying to manipulate their circumstances. Little kids are the most powerless class of people there are, so it's not surprising that some will try and figure out ways to gain advantage, even if society teaches them morals.

The strange thing is he was a top student among the top students in grade school.
I remember his grades seriously dropped on the 2nd year of Middle/Junior High School and he was taking seriously high level of bulling even from some teachers.
He also snapped one day and tried to attack people in his class with his chair and broke his nose on the process.

But i never talked to him again after grade school not even at our block.

This is what I would suspect. Writing an entire game in Z80 assembly with such constrained resources must be a complete nightmare. I imagine this is the reason, along with what I understand to be a highly pressured development period, for the vast number of bugs in RBG.
That and massively popular games get a much greater proportion of their bugs discovered due to so many people play(-test)ing them. I'm sure OoT was actually quite well-written, but the number of glitches we've found in it is simply great; I fucking love glitches.

Not a rumor, but I remember a Mexican magazine (Club Nintendo) once had a "code" to unlock Rat King and Karai in TMNT Tournament Fighters that involved fucking turning the SNES off and on a gorillion times in rapid-fire succession. Even as a kid I thought not only did that make no goddamn sense, but that it couldn't possibly be good for the game and/or console. My brother and I tried it for like half an hour anyway. Don't quite remember if we actually got it to work, but what the fuck man.

You know, I've always thought that former programmers from the legendarily incompetent Micronics worked on Pokemon. The game does have the odd, choppy scrolling, and the sprites don't stay on screen properly when the game scrolls. Well, maybe not a proper Micronics staffer, but someone who was influenced from their programming motto, which was "just make it work, fuck bugs". Marionette, another Japanese developer, has Micronics-like quality for their games (Dr. Chaos, Phantom Fighter), and the guy who founded Micronics, some Kazuo Yagi (best known by his alias Kazzo), went to work for Video System for Aero Fighters. Maybe Kazuo gave GameFreak some tutoring lessons?

This was the only 'reasonable' trick...not. Here are some others:

>Finding Mew: Walk over Seafoam Island searching the ground with 'A' and at some point you will find the Rainbow Stone. Give it to your Mewtwo and it will evolve into Mew.
>Finding Marill in Red/blue: catch 150 Missingnos and save (lol,obvious troll is obvious) - no gold edition released at that time, yet. People got to known to that pokemon only by the first movie.
>Finding Donphan in Red/blue: probably too stupid to even remember.

My cousin told me in that if you managed to land of the unused portions of the track in Port Town II in F-ZERO that you could continue down the track, which would become like an infinity long stretching highway. Eventually the track would become dilapidated with holes and shit everywhere and you'd get attacked by ghosts of people who died on the road. Eventually they'd cause enough damage that the car would explode, but the pilot would jump out and you'd have to control them as they continued to run forward down the track until eventually all the ghosts killed him.

Exactly. Another anon conviently went into better detail than I can in another thread today but basically the gist of it is the translators for the English version of SF2 opted to literally translate the kanji ("Sheng long quan") of the attack as opposed to hiragana (As everyone knows, "Sho ryu ken"), which is what's actually used in the Japanese version of the quote.

Funnily enough, Goku uses an attack called the Ryuken in the 13th DBZ movie, which greatly resembles the shoryuken.

It's not really that retro, but I remember when wc3 came out there were people who thought that clicking on the building while it builds makes it build faster. The reason for that was that when you click on it - it updates the HP count, and without clicking it goes up by like, say, 20hp each refresh. But when you click on it rapidly it updates 4 times with 5hp in that same time, so it looks like its faster. I figured this out first time I was told about it but nobody believed me and I even became everyones enemy for that time cause I "tried to tell them lies".

But if you do anything other than the specific exact steps, you get to run around like normal at the pool for a bit after she says the wet clothes bit.

Nope, though I suppose my manic post wasn't fully clear.
I can't remember if the magazine was egm or gamefan, figure it's gamefan because that was the one I liked back then. In the early section of the magazine, was a little purple article that said "here you guys go, this is the trick!". Pretty sure it wasn't an april fools thing.

If you've played that original tomb raider, you know there's that training level in lara's mansion.
You'd run around in there, until you jump in the pool at the end, and when you got out, she'd say that "I'd better take off these wet clothes", then you could run around for a bit before the level just faded out.

If you followed the steps from the magazine, as soon as you touched the edge of the pool, the dialogue would start, screen would immediately go black, and the saturn would make a full disc start stop noise and you'd hear the laser rush it's ass across the disc. It's the same way a saturn sounds if it can't boot a disc.

As a grow up, I realize it was probably just a weird oddly specific reproducible crash, and someone thought it'd be funny to print it.

Now that I think about it, but I also new a kid like that.
With parents that fit that description too.

He made absurd promises and claims about video games or whatever.
Like saying he had all the Egyptian god cards in yugioh, or that he caught celebi in pokemon red.

Last I heard he did acid with a bunch of homeless people and ransacked his parents houseboat to give clothes and stuff to the homeless people.

At least i will never fuck up that bad.

Guy I was friends with in elementary school believed, that in Tekken 3 you could make the trees in the wood stage (don't know the exact name) come to life and but up the opponent.
that was not ENTIRELY foolish, but the code was: you had to pause the game and push ALL the buttons on the gamepad, including the d-pad (which is impossible it it's not broken), as well as start, select, the L and R buttons...
and since he couldn't do it alone, I helped him. so we tried, but gave up after a few attempts. very silly, but also funny when I think back.

Like secret GFs, how to get Laguna in Squall's party in FF8, how to be assigned to a different team during the Dollet mission so you never go up to the radio tower and it keeps Seifer in your party through the whole game.

How to get secret Weapons to appear on the world map in FF7, I remember it having to do with getting at least one of every type of materia and maxing all of their levels. Could never attempt this because there's one type of materia you only get from Chocobo races and that shithead on a black chocobo won every race even when I used a gameshark to max my chocobo's stats.

Firstly, the situation described wasn't solving violence with violence. The violence had gone as far as it could, so the punishment was not "solving" anything to begin with. Punishment/retribution serves to justify, in the literal sense of the word, not solve. Secondly, treating "violence" as some sort of generally equivalent category of behavior is trite idiocy. The notion that a category of behavior as broad as "violence"—you could just as well swap it with "conversation" or "trade"—is inherently self-perpetuating or incapable of diminishing other behavior in the same category is infantile. Does the fact that firefighters actually start fires to consume the potential fuel of larger fires blow your bible school mind? Does the suicide of a remorseful but pathologically compulsive serial killer beget more violence?

>What an elegant rebuttal of the core of my argument. I'm convinced.

Your original post (>>2319860) was a conceited criticism of the beating that kid received after killing his turtle, not of any "daily" beatings. If you beat someone every day regardless of what they do, it will indeed nurture learned helplessness. But all of the beatings described were in response to a particular misdeed or lie. Maybe that kid eventually realized after serious reflection that people don't respect liars, maybe not, but none of those stories suggested he was beat just for the fun of it or on some sort of regular "schedule". Your original statement was an idiotic platitude, and now you're moving the goalposts while revising your original stupidity.

Does anyone know the real reason the truck exists though? It's a sprite that's nowhere else in the game and you can't even see it if you progress through the area as intended. There's gotta be a story behind it

You could have had some fun with that one. Just hit him over the head when you're alone and then "why are you so mad? You were just faking being hurt right?"

I have no idea why I was so eager to believe that game designers routinely hid content that was half the size of the fucking game away where no one would ever know it existed. It's just not logical.

I wonder if there's a way to capture that mystique in the modern Internet age.

All bonds..... Trying to unlock that shit as a kid was harsh....

Goldeneye had alot of them thinking about it that stuck with me till college when I started modding games and viewing files.

Like getting to that fucking island and trying to ride the bikes.

Also a small section of a magazine I read as a kid had a guide to getting special hats for Mario in 64.

> Go to snow level
> Get snowmans body to follow you
> jump onto helicopter enemy and get on top of wall
> wind will blow from wall and knock your hat off
> get penguin and take it to it's mumma
> get other penguin and drop it into the cannon then jump in
> fly to jumpkick area and run around the tree
> a tree with loads of hats will now spurt and you can play the game as a different mario

Fucking magazine.....

Returning to Kanto in Pokemon G/S was probably the most closely-guarded secret in all of gaming when the games first came out. I played through a fan-translated rom and it blew my fucking mind.

I immediately told all my friends at school about it, and they didn't believe.

He's almost right actually.
Apparently button presses took up enough processing to "short-change" the calculation for capture. Its never 100% but apparently it helps.

If you have Pokemon Yellow plugged into Pokemon Stadium you can teach Surf to Pikachu legitimately by beating the hardest cup with Pikachu in your party.

My friend tricked me into believing that there was an universal computer virus that changed stuff in PC games. In Starcraft, it was supposed to change marines into little Raymans, and make them run around the barracks frantically if the building was on fire from the damage.

He also made me think that you could melt your sword in Aladdin, in the lava cave level. Tried it when I got there, of course.

I did that without an outside source. It just made sense to check every place you could with surf, because fuck it, now you can surf.

I racked up soooo many hours with Crystal, it was ridiculous. I beat Red in that Kanto cave so many times that it gave me erections to see lvl 70+ Pokemon to battle with.

My nigga that game was fucking amazing. I spent days learning the egg groups only to find out in PS2 that Ditto could breed with all of them.
