Friday Night Fights: Easter eggs

Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday Everyone!

Since we are on the eve, of the eve, of Easter, I thought it would be fun to talk about and discuss some of our favorite Easter eggs hidden away in our favorite videogames.

I figure I'll get the party started, I have two favorite Easter eggs, the first is an oldie, but still pretty damn awesome.  Back in the day I was a HUGE point and click fan, I loved all the old Lucasarts games, two of my favorites were Maniac Mansion and Maniac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle. Did you know, while playing Day of the Tentacle, you can actually play the entire original Maniac Mansion game? While still in Day of the Tentacle?! It's true!

While playing as Bernard (Day of the Tentacle), visit Weird Ed's room. From here you can access his computer and play Maniac Mansion in its entirety! Neat!

My second favorite is the secret Cow Level in Diablo II. What started out as a joke and rumor, eventually found its way into the game itself. In order to get to the hellish landscape of the Cow Level, you would have to combine Wirt's Leg and a Tome of Town Portal using the Horadric Cube, and you had to do this in the Rogue Encampment. From there it was a bovine slaughter-fest, and it was glorious.

I would love to hear about all of your favorite Easter eggs, I know there are hundreds upon hundreds of them out there. Feel free to share in the comments below!

Alright, now that that's out of the way, let's get to the games!

Friday Night Fights

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members sign up to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, and I recap it all here on the front page to give it a bit more exposure.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! If you'd rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!

I'm pretty sure you guys know what game I'll be playing tomorrow. One of THE hottest games of the season. That's right, I'm talking about Lunch Truck Tychoon. Kojima ain't got shit on me, mukkas!

Playing Project Zero 2 on Wii. One should hope PZ5 got more sensible controls - twisting the Wiimote left/right to turn the camera does not make sense.

"When you are not playing the game or choose not to join the defense, your FOB will be defended automatically by your Security Team and security devices." Yeah, I think I'll just avoid the FOB functionality in MGS V

PSA: If you're picking up Phantom Pain tomorrow, put the kids down for a nap, turn off your phone and tell your partner to pipe down - the opening hour deserves your undivided attention. Enjoy!

Just read that SquareEnix have applied some weird mutation of crowdfunding mechanics to the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided preorder. I know the last blog I wrote mentioned how big publishers try to pervert these systems, but to think it's already this far gone.

First in line to grab MGS V tomorrow. Close to my house, so it looks like I can eat and sleep comfortably. No one else seems to be waiting at my mailbox. Neighbors are getting suspicious.

You know what, I'm just gonna come out and say it. I hope MGSV fails. It won't train wreck by any means, but I hope it's a huge financial failure. Nothing against Kojima, but #fuckonami

MGS V unlocks for me tomorrow at noon.

Since my blog using this is basically useless, I still wanted to share it. [img]http://i.imgur.com/a33WM5Q.png[/img] CAN YOU DIG IT!?

I don't think you should be able to say #Fuckonami if you are deciding to support their product anyways. I don't often agree with boycotting and am not condoning that, but get your story straight and show a little consistency.

When the band began to play the stars were shining bright. Now the milkman's on his way and it's too late to say good night. So, Good Morning! Good Morning!
IDrawOnTape avatarIDrawOnTape
I'm guessing all rock bands in the world must have stopped making music videos this year, since I read fall out boy's "Uma Thurman" won for rock video of the year. I can only assume there were no other nominees.that's the only rational explanation.
