In Pac-Man World 2, I didn't know about the shortcuts at 3:37, or 18:00, or that you can time you can beat the Whale boss quickly by hitting all four propellers, right before the last then, then hit each of them all at once, or that you can completely skip most of Ghost Bayou, and that if you kill yourself after each checkpoint in the final boss, you get two free hits.

I didn't know that when you change the town theme in AC: NL, it only affects the tune of when you are greeted by someone.

Also the clock bell on the hour and it plays really fast as a door chime when you enter certain buildings like your house and I think Harriett's Salon & Kicks.

I never knew you could continue in the original Super Mario Bros, if you got a game over. Can't believe all you do is hold START + A. Played the game ever since I was a kid and only learned about this recently on N Life.

I was convinced that the Longshot was in Metroid Zero Mission but not in the original game. I just found that out on YouTube and I am waaaaaay too far in the game to go back and obtain it.

(I hope bumping this old thread is not against the rules!)

While I wasn't the person that didn't know this it is bad enough that I need to post. My manager at gamestop just found out that Samus was a woman. He never beat any speed runs so he never saw her sans armor (or helmet) and he never played as her in smash...it wasn't until they split ZSS and even then it took him a few months to put two and two together. After I told him to stop kidding and he swore he wasn't I asked him for his badge...because yeah that's sad. I've never even beaten a metroid game and I know that. He did at least know her name was Samus and not Metroid.

Just more proof that Gamestop employees know nothing about video games.

In Starfox 64 the team actually have robot Legs which is something I never assumed until I watched Game Theory talking about it a few days ago.Mind was blown.

haha. What tipped you off? The voice acting? The repetitive structure? The nausea-inducing special stages? The super power of teamwork?

I was eight when I got Brawl, my first Smash game. Despite that I (thought I) read the entire instruction booklet, it took me two years to figure out what shielding was, and several more months to discover grabbng.

Not much to say here. I like Nintendo. That's about it.

I found a secret area in Dry Dry Ruins I never knew existed. HOW LONG HAS THIS BEEN HERE? AND WHO HOW WOULD YOU FIND IT WITHOUT HELP?

What was in the secret area? I think I found it and was all like "HOLY SHIZZ HOW LONG HAS THIS BEEN HERE?!" during a second run.

In Super Tennis, if you hold L or R while hitting the ball, you can put side spin on your shots

In Gradius III, the Konami code... kills you. But if you replace left and right with L and R, you'll get all your powerups immediately. But you can only do it once.

In Super Castlevania IV, the last few levels aren't the same as the original Castlevania (what I always assumed since they looked so similar)
