    Default WEIRDEST Easter Eggs

    I just recently learned, what I consider to be, the most fucked up Easter Egg.

    The hidden Fantasy Zone game in Arnold Palmer Tournament Golf for Sega Genesis. What kind of easter egg is that? usually easter eggs are related to the game. but... this one?

    The only other off the wall easter eggs I can think of are Pong and Galaga in MKII and MK3.

    Anyone else have any easter eggs that made them sit there in bewilderment when first discovered?

    The first true EE to make my stare in wonderment was the initials in Yars Revenge on the 2600. I only found them once and didn't know how I did it, but was upset cause I was doing really good... untill recent years and learning about EEs I just thought my game froze up

    How about the fractal generation program in Chip's Challenge? There's also the "zit-popping contest" in Slime World. Those were pretty wierd ones.

    There is a hidden golf "driving range" on NBA Live 95 for the Genesis...

    And I think it's hidden somehow...but there is some kind of bowling game in Primal Rage that I always thought was just a bit bizarre...

    the 32X game cosmic carnage had the hidden japanese version in it with different players.
    Somebody once told me to get a life.

    I told them I sold it for money to buy video games.

    In some of the very first relased copies of Revenge of Shinobi for the Genesis.
    If you do the cart swap trick you will get Super Shinobi. How do you
    know if you have one of those carts...Does Godzilla in your game has his shin
    on ? If he does you have a 90% chance it might be.

    And Super Shinobi is a much better if not slightly harder version of the game

    How many different variations of Revenge/Super Shinobi are there?

    I used to play it WAY back when, and things of note were Spider Man, looked Like Spider Man, But when he was killed, a new guy came out, a guy who looked like a half bat/half man, but NOT Batman. he was hairy with the leaf nose and everything.
    And Godzilla looked like godzilla
    Then on the "Classics" re-release, it was the same, yet Godzilla never had any skin, he ALWAYS looked like a robot.
    Then I have RoS on my Genesis 6-Pak, and on THAT one, Godzilla once again never has skin, and "the bat man" is actually DC Comics Batman (yet there are no copyright/trademarks listings like there are for Spider-man.)

    And then there's Super Shinobi... which I'm guessing is the Japanese/European version of RoS. which has re-arranged music, and DC's Batman as a boss, but I don't remember what Godzilla is like on that version...

    NOW WHAT ONE SECOND....
    RoS at least the one I played and once own before a friend borrowed
    then lot the bloody thing. Was in fact purchased at Toys R Us.
    To give you all some facts. According to a Sega Game expert This odd
    version of RoS was ported from the Japanese release, and in fact the
    only reason it was changed was when the copy right holders of both
    Batman and Godzilla threatend to sue there pants off. To restate
    the facts this hidden Super Shinobi was only in the very first shipment of
    Ros to this country.

    I have the original Japanese release of Super Shinobi and it has Godzilla with skin, Spiderman Batman etc. If I use the Megadrive language switch mod to turn it into Revenge of Shinobi, then Godzilla turns into the robot version, but I think everything else stays the same.

    I'm not sure though, it's been a while since I've played it.

    In Outlaws, for the PC (an old west FPS) you can blow a hole in the bottom of an outhouse, swim down, and find a UFO in an underground cavern. When you look inside a window, you see an alien advancing on a cow, then another alien notices the open window and closes it... Shakespeare, visualized.

    I've always considered the Cadillac in Rouge Squadron for the N64 to be the oddest.
