Aug 21

Whenever you have time, boot up Heroes of the Storm and check out this cute new Easter egg. It takes place in the Monk's splash screen following the latest patch, and allows you to play a small little game of Duck Hunt....

Batman: Arkham Knight has a Halloween-themed Easter egg


'Spoilers,' I guess
Jul 23
// Steven Hansen
I came home to my pal Kenny playing Batman: Arkham Knight. Unfortunately for him (and me), he spent most of this time doing the Cloudburst, stealth-tank fight, and swearing. I'm actually second-hand mad at the game all over ...

Fallout, Skyrim, and Quake!
May 06
// Jed Whitaker
The Wolfenstein series is no stranger to Easter eggs and the just-released Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is no exception. Captain Eggcellent shows us just a few of the eggs he has found in the first 45 minutes of gameplay, incl...

Ori has another homage to another great SMB


Paying tribute to The Brothers Mario
Apr 07
// Brett Makedonski
A few weeks back, we called attention to Ori and the Blind Forest giving a nod to a revered platformer: Super Meat Boy. Turns out that wasn't the only great platformer (or even the only "SMB") tucked away within the game...

There is a couch in Battlefield Hardline and you can drive it


No, seriously, there is
Mar 13
// Robert Summa
First-person shooters can feel pretty generic most of the time. You're handed your gun and objective and then proceed to shoot people that get in your way. You die, and start all over again. The ones that really stand out, h...

Battlefield Hardline's cops go nuts for donuts


Don't we all?
Feb 06
// Brett Makedonski
I'm not hip on police vernacular. Like, "donuts spotted!" for instance. That probably either means they found donuts, or "spotted" is a cheeky word for sprinkles. Whatever the case, these Battlefield Hardline cops are stoked that there are some frosted confectioneries around. Typical.

There is no princess in this castle
Feb 06
// Jason Faulkner

You sly dog
Jan 12
// Jordan Devore
Composer Kazumi Totaka has been hiding this tune in Nintendo games for over two decades now. While some of us will best recognize "Totaka's Song" from Mario Paint, it has turned up in titles like Link's Awakening, Luigi's Ma...

It sounds like there's another monster hiding in Battlefield 4


The mystery of Paracel Storm
Jan 08
// Jordan Devore
YouTube user JackFrags might just be on the trail of another hidden beast in Battlefield 4, and whatever it is, it sounds far scarier than a giant monster shark. Listen for yourself at 0:20. "I did a little snooping around i...

The New Nintendo 3DS -- out now in Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, and coming to the rest of the world presumably next year -- has an upgraded web browser with a neat little Easter egg. Now, I don't know how in the world ...

Why didn't anyone tell me you can become a cat in Grand Theft Auto V?


Stay the hell away from security guards
Nov 19
// Jordan Devore
Yesterday, I saw that Grand Theft Auto V video of Franklin consuming a peyote plant and hallucinating he was a chicken which, because this is a videogame, meant the player got to actually control a chicken. Hah. Nice one, Ro...

This one took three years to find
Nov 18
// Brett Makedonski
Across the Arkham titles, the developers have included at least two incredibly well-hidden easter eggs. Who could forget the one in Arkham Asylum that was so stashed away that Rocksteady itself had to reveal i...

// Darren Nakamura
There has been a bit of talk about an interesting legendary weapon in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel that is in plain sight, but unavailable at first. Excalibastard is stuck in a stone in the area Stanton's Liver, and only those...

Wolfenstein: The New Order is out today and that's all well and good. Instead of talking about what's new, let's take a look at this easter egg in which you take a nap and play through the first level of Wolfenstein 3D. It's...

MEGALODON!
Apr 04
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
Battlefield 4 has a ton of easter eggs. Such as the case with the Megalodon, which can be discovered in the Naval Strike DLC on the Nansha Strike map. And yes, you will die if you get caught underneath its jump.

After playing The Wonderful 101 back when it was Project P-100, I wasn't sure what to think. Thankfully, the newly released demo shows that the game's come a long way since then. While it's easy enough to breeze through on a...

This isn't really a spoiler, but you're probably better off avoiding whatever this is about anyway. I imagine we're going to be discovering a lot of hidden secrets in BioShock Infinite over the next few months. The latest di...

Feb 07

Yup, Visceral brought back the foam finger gun for Dead Space 3. Kind of was hoping for something different this time, but it's still a pretty badass weapon. Like before, it's pretty much a one-hit kill weapon, and Isaac wil...

Minor spoilers below, you've been warned
Oct 18

Borderlands 2's first DLC, Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, extends the original game's love for having as many Easter eggs as possible. The latest (I'd argue greatest), discovery is that there is a Big Daddy na...

Bethesda/Zenimax's legal team may be on the warpath, but the developers at Bethesda Soft bear no ill will toward Mojang Games, it would seem. Despite the Minecraft developer meeting Bethesda at court, a cute little reference ...

How to get Gears of War 3's chicken-firing Cluckshot


Sep 25
// Jordan Devore
Part of what makes this Gears of War 3 Easter egg so fun is that it's a stark contrast to how serious the series takes itself. The other part is that it's a gun which fires live, exploding chickens. The Cluckshot, a fowl-cen...

Like a lot of people, I love Pikmin. What appears to be a cute, relatively kid-feiendly game is actually a tale of potentially endless, unspeakable horrors. It's one of the few series that is simply too stressful for some pe...

I'm guessing the answer is "no", because I've been scouring the internet all morning for some source or report on this. Sadly, I can't find anything. All I have to go on is an email I got from Tyrone Rodriguez from Nicalis (...
