SEGA Pluto up to auction on eBay

7 May

SEGA Pluto prototype console ebay price

Do you remember the huge revelation about the two super-secret SEGA Pluto prototype consoles we told you a while ago? Good, because one of them is currently on eBay.

Yep, that was predictable. In the end it’s just two-of-a-kind so we’re not really surprised about that (saw that, at least, one of the owner didn’t even know what the hell it was).

The thing that wasn’t predictable is that the auction has already reached more than $8000 and it’s still 3 days to go. Yes, that’s an huge amount of money! But don’t get too excited, because the actual eBay auction says that the reserve price has not been met yet (you, greedy bastard!). For now we can just wait, we’ll keep you posted!

Check it by yourself!

Shakespeare on Bioshock Infinite

13 Apr

Possession is one of the most useful vigors in Bioshock Infinite and one of the most evocative as you get it for the first time. In fact it shows up as a beautiful ghost woman seducing whoever you use it against, with a strange melodic sound you couldn’t really understand… until now.
The guys at EveryClickCounts discovered that if you play the sound backwards the woman is saying these exact words:

“Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-browed night,

Give me my Romeo. And when I shall die,

Take him and cut him out in little stars,

And he will make the face of heaven so fine

That all the world will be in love with night

And pay no worship to the garish sun.”

Hackers find that F-Zero AX is fully playable within F-Zero GX on GameCube

f-zero ax gx

F-Zero GX is a masterpiece for the GameCube, a great collaboration between SEGA and Nintendo (and the first one, right after SEGA became a third party developer) that leaded to an awesome racing game. The game had also its counterpart in the arcades, indeed there was (and still is, but it is ridiculously rare to find) a cabinet version called F-Zero AX. The two games can exchange save data via GameCube memory cards in order to unlock some extra stuff, but recently, some hackers found that the two versions of the game have something else in common.

People at The Cutting Room Floor, a site dedicated to unearthing and researching unused and cut content from video games (from debug menus, to unused music, graphics, enemies, or levels, many games have content never meant to be seen by anybody but the developers), recently discovered that F-Zero GX contains the full version of F-Zero AX, and everybody can access the game through an Action Replay disc.

The unused content was a difficult find, as it was hidden for almost a decade (the GX version was released back in 2003). AX is unlockable in both PAL and NTSC version of the game, but obviously it is a bit buggy and contains some instances of Japanese text.

These are the two codes needed to unlock the arcade game in your GameCube version:



Aliens: Colonial Marines, all the pretty Easter Eggs

17 Feb

Everyone’s talking a lot about last Gearbox‘s title, Aliens: Colonial Marines, we are not here to discuss how bad or how good it is because we think in the end is up to you to judge.
Instead we decided to put together a short video with all the Easter Eggs you can find in game, some related to the Aliens movies, some related to OTHER movies (see: Space Balls) and some not related at all, but still funny and worth to watch.

Have fun!
