Just found out two weeks ago there's a way to manage memory cards on the n64. You have to hold start and then turn on the n64 with a compatible game in the system. Also the memory card manager UI is different for every game

Because it never leaves its bedroom, no one has ever seen this poster's real face.

iirc playing sounds at different speeds was a native feature of the n64 hardware, done so developers could save cart space

You know you'd watch it.


More of a tech/bug thing rather than some hidden mechanic but the strength of gravity in Doom for PlayStation is tied to the framerate! Lower framerates (encountered in such levels as MAP25 which has some horrendous slowdown) result in weaker gravity, whereas higher framerates have you hitting the ground fast. Overclocking the CPU (to keep the game running at the intended 30fps) keeps the gravity effect constant (duh), and with a somewhat higher pull than the PC original. Here I am loving around to show this bug/useless info in action. This probably has the unintended side-effect where some maps requiring ledge-leaping to progress can't be completed unless there's slowdown, but I haven't bothered testing it that much yet.

Xcom also had a bug that reset your difficulty to the easiest level after the first mission, regardless of what you picked when you started the game.

Sid Meierís Colonization had a bug where it wouldnít randomise combat results properly. Effectively it would give the same result for every combat, so you would either win or lose every single battle in the turn.

Some dude made a patch for it years after the game came out but it somehow broke random map generation. so you had to use the unpatched version to start the game if you wanted to play on a random map then switch to the patched version.

in the original design for max payne, instead of the gimmick being "going into matrix slow motion" it was "injecting a drug that temporarily transforms you into a mutant hulk". but then a publishing exec pointed out that the slow motion stuff that they'd implemented for testing visual effects and stuff was way more interesting

I didn't know that in Link to the Past, if you don't take the lantern in Link's house, it will show up in the chest right after your uncle, and if you don't take it there it will show up in the chest next to Zelds after you rescue her.
