Yeah, @ClaytonLuigi sent me a swapnote of this and it's really cool! Now where did I put my Magic Eye book?

"Luigi's Mansion has cheese in it?" That was my reaction when I was on the Super Mario Wiki. I first played the game around Christmas 2003. I didn't know about the cheese until about 2009.

At least that's more understandable than Ash thinking Anabel of the Battle Frontier was a guy.

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.
...
Prof. Oak: It's only Chansey if Krabby won't let go. Bye, now.
Ash: I don't think I'm going to call him anymore.

The exact same thing for me as well.

I've been playing Ocarina of Time since I was a pretty young child.
But I had no idea that in the Lost Woods, in one of the sections (I forget which one now) there's a hole hidden in a patch of grass, and if you fall down it there's a bunch of Deku Scrubs that'll let you play a game with them. There's a whole minigame I never knew about until like, last month. Crazy. This game has some depth, y'all.

I found that out by accident a long time ago. Definitely well hidden.

I just found out minutes ago that the masks actually have passive effects in Ocarina of Time.
E.g. the Bunny Hood causes Stalchildren to not appear in the field while worn.
The Skull Mask causes Keese to not attack you, and allows you to hold more Deku Sticks.
And the Mask of Truth allows you to hold more Deku Nuts.

Huh.

With one player, sure. But with 2 players, it's actually impossible.

And no amount of proof will make me believe otherwise.

Right. Because the second-to-last level is supposedly broken and the second player can't move.

It's too bad it doesn't work like the similar Carpet Ride level in the Genesis version of Aladdin where they let you move on after you die 3 times.

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.

Prof. Oak: It's only Chansey if Krabby won't let go. Bye, now.

In Megaman 7 when you select Shademan's stage, hold down the B button and the music of Ghost n Goblins plays instead of the usual theme music:

I won't say I didn't know it, but I didn't realize I'd come short of it. And that is the 96 level completion of Super Mario World to get a star by your file. I'm making 2012 a kind of Super Nintendo year to celebrate my 20th anniversary of owning it, and going back to play my first games. So, I've been playing Super Mario World from scratch and using a guide to make sure I've done everything. Discovered that you don't have 100% unless you have the *96 on your file. Somehow, my original save(s) got wiped out by accident, but I know I never had a * by it. So, the other morning, after owning it for 20 years, 2 months, I finally finished SMW 100%! :D

In light of this, I'm going back to investigate online lot of my old games that I finished pre-Internet, to see if there was stuff I missed the first go around. I'd highly recommend that everyone else do this with their old games too. Might wind up putting a new shine on some of your old classics, to go back and do things you didn't on your original playthrough! ;)

In the second level of Donkey Kong, Mario has to jump over sand piles.

Until recently this year, I thought they were always pies.

Wow, I'd never heard of those Zelda secrets before, and Kamek being replaced by Donkey Kong in Mario Kart 64 is news to me. I remember hearing that Super Mario Bros. 2 wasn't a "real" Mario game back in 2002 or 2003, 14 or 15 years after I'd gotten it as a kid. Heard it from G4 back when they were still "the video game channel."
