Did You Know Gaming tackles Team Fortress 2

I've fallen off the Team Fortress 2 wagon in a big way; I used to play for at least 2-3 hours every day but the constant stream of updates and deluge of new items dulled my interest. Watching this latest episode of Did You K...

Pikmin 3 takes place 250 million years in Earth's future

Fun trivia for the day! There are plenty of clues in the Pikmin series to suggest that the Pikmin's planet is in fact Earth at a point when humans are no longer around. The most clear-cut evidence to support this theory is du...

Samus was almost naked in Super Metroid!?!? photo
Samus was almost naked in Super Metroid!?!?
by Tony Ponce

[Update: For more gaming trivia, visit Did You Know Gaming? directly or the brand new sister site just launched, VGFacts.]

Oh? Did I get your attention? Apparently, Samus' death animation in Super Metroid originally had her breaking out of her suit sans skivvies and letting loose a vocalized scream, but clothing was added to avoid controversy and the voice was removed for sounding too sexual. True story!

To the best of my knowledge, we haven't shared a single episode of Did You Know Gaming? on Dtoid before (and if we did, it completely passed me by). I myself only discovered it a couple months back, and I've been happily enjoying new videos since. For those unaware, Did You Know Gaming? is a videogame trivia show featuring a rotating cast of notable YouTube stars providing narration. Some of the information they discuss is extremely fascinating!

The latest installment focuses on Metroid, as you can see. I'm amazed by how many iconic design decisions in the earliest games were made around the limitations of the hardware. I'm also surprised to learn that Samus originally had distinct left- and right-facing sprites in her first outing.
