Battlefield 1 players looking to solve the depths of the game’s most elusive puzzle have hit pay-dirt. Translated morse code and a hunt to find hidden symbols yielded an underwhelming reward: a measly dog tag.
Donkey Kong 64 is packed to the brim with coins and bananas. Nearly two decades since the game’s release in 1999, a dedicated speedrunner has found a new coin for players to collect.
Bloodborne lore contains a group known as the Tomb Prospectors, who explore the labyrinth dungeon on behalf of the Healing Church. Months after release, that idea spawned a group of real-life Tomb Prospectors: players who endlessly scour Bloodborne’s dungeons, all in the hope of finding something no one is even sure…
Hidden deep in the world of Final Fantasy XV, there’s a dungeon unlike anything else in the game. Let me tell you how to find it—and why it’s so cool. (One tip: You can’t get there until you’ve finished the game.)
Built for speed and not exploration, racing games like Mario Kart like to keep players confined to a set track. Since developers always know what the player will be looking at, it’s easier to hide things away, until a YouTuber like Shesez starts using camera tricks to explore beyond track borders.
Doug “Rat Man” Rattmann is one of the most important characters in Portal, though he didn’t appear in either game. The message-scrawling scientist made his video game debut in Lego Dimensions’ Portal level pack, though he’s so well hidden it took more than a year to find him.
Sometimes, developers put stuff inside of a game that players are never supposed to see. Such was the case with the original Paper Mario, which apparently had a bunch of dialogue that was not discovered until very recently.
More players are dying in the depths of World of Warcaft’s Gnomeregan dungeon than there’ve been in years, thanks to the revelation of a ridiculously powerful new boss tucked away in its depths. Say hello to Endgineer Omegaplugg, and then goodbye very quickly.
The air is festive and steam-filled inside the cave of the northeastern coast of the Broken Isles, as the bodies of Horde and Alliance players alike form a pile around an orb that must be clicked to complete the Legion expansion’s recently-discovered secret world quest.
This is several dozen players battling a new World of Warcraft world boss named Kosumoth the Hungering. Players stumbled upon the zone-spanning steps needed to spawn him while searching for another World of Warcraft secret entirely.
Blood and Wine, the latest (and final) DLC pack for The Witcher 3, has an easter egg that I am frankly shocked anyone found at all. The secret is remarkably well-hidden, and not accessible through normal means.
The next Zelda game isn’t out yet, but eagle-eyed players are already finding all sorts of cool easter eggs.
The Commonwealth has been thoroughly mapped by intrepid adventurers already, but with the new DLC, Fallout 4 players now have an entirely new landmass to mine and explore.
Proving once more that scrappy hero of Punch-Out!! is actually a dirty cheater, Redditor midwesternhousewives shares the story of the bearded crowdmember whose nod tells Little Mac exactly when to knock out Piston Honda and Bald Bull the second time around.
Fallout 4 has a ridiculous number of terminals, most of which the average player will never see. One man, however, has actually spent over 25 hours poring through every computer in Fallout 4. It’s madness.
Pelican Town might seem like an idyllic countryside getaway, but don’t let that fool you. Stardew Valley is full of mysteries, some of which players may never see.
Prison Architect is a top-down prison management game that’s got some visual flair, but it’s definitely 2D. Tiny two-dimensional prisoners wander two-dimensional corridors, dreaming of two-dimensional freedom. Turns out, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Yesterday saw some Star Wars excitement as a video circulated suggesting one of The Force Awakens’ biggest unanswered questions was actually answered in Disney Infinity’s movie play set. Nah. Didn’t happen.
I am in awe that anybody managed to figure this out.
