James Rolfe may best be known as the Angry Video Game Nerd, but he also produces a variety of other content for his website Cinemassacre. One such video series, Mike's Game Glitches, is hosted by his best friend and AVGN collaborator Mike Matei. Mike digs up some crazy and often obscure tricks and glitches in older videogames, then he records himself triggering them in the actual games.
With Ocarina of Time 3D around the corner, it seemed an opportune time to game-break the N64 original. Of the bugs he showcases, I was only aware of the infinite Gold Skulltulas trick in the Hyrule Castle grotto. Did you know that you can "swim" on land? Or that you can reflect Ganon's magic using a bottle instead of the sword?
I would love to see some of these bug carry over into the remake. They sound incredibly fun!
