I only see GC 4.0 happening if I become a English major. Yeah, it is happening now. GC 4.0 will be released in 2020.

There was a certain chest in Twilight Princess that I didn't know was there for a while. Even worse, it was at the most simple temple: the first one. :D

I didn't know that in Super Mario 3 the hammers you throw when wearing a Hammer Bros. suit can kill Boos. Found it out on accident like a year ago.

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

Not only that, but she's changed her name, too...stealing the moniker of a fellow Mario enemy. She was originally called "Ostro".

Actually that was a mistake. Birdo and Ostro's names were both switched in the western version.

Interesting that they kept that mistake to this day. In the 3DS VC version this mistake is still in the credits.

No, she was originally named Catherine. Nintendo didn't quite get how censorship works, they changed his/her name but left in the fact it's gender-confused in the manual (so I've been told, haven't seen the SMB2 manual myself). :P

In Animal Crossing on Gamecube, late August was the overall best time for fishing and bug catching, all of the September fish and bugs came out a week early but all of the August stuff hasn't left yet. Jellyfish also replaced Sea Bass during that time making Red Snappers and Barred Knifejaws much easier to catch because of the Jellyfish's smaller shadow size. Also in early September, while the August stuff has left now but the Sea Bass hasn't come back yet making Red Snappers and Barred Knifejaws the only two fish in the ocean (the Salmon are only at the river mouth part of the ocean). Golden opportunity to rake in bells.

That there's an alternate path in Hill Top Zone (my favorite zone in Sonic 2) and an alternate path to bypass the water in Chemical Plant Zone Act 2.

EDIT: And the shortcut to Labyrinth Zone Act 1

that kirby's rock/cutter copy abylity in kirby 64 allowed kirby to wall jump(took me 4 years to find out because I dislike using walkthroughs and since it was my first game I wanted to get 100% without any help)

goodbyes are a sad part of life but for every end there's a new beggining so one must never stop looking forward to the next dawn
