Left over assets and unused areas in Goldeneye's silo level indicate that at some point in development Goldeneye may have been intended to be a rail shooter, but Rare has never commented

Maybe it was confirmed. I'm not sure, I used to be really keen on reading into the Goldeneye mysteries during the mid 2000s but the scene mostly died and I lost interest, so I'm not really up to date.
In that case, one thing I do know that was never confirmed is the roof of this silo (couldn't find a better pic).
Switch from a gun to unarmed, or equip general ouromovs key and press B, and the roof of this silo will open...
You were probably meant to stop a missile launch at some point, but if that's the case why does the roof even open? That would make sense if you were supposed to launch the missile, but why would bond launch a missile?

Goldeneye is filled with really odd shit left over from the beta, and rareware so so ass-backwards secretive at the time that we'll probably never really know.

This mystery is pretty much solved. You'd go to the docks and take the green boat to the island to destroy the gun so that you could safely take off from the runway later on.
It was probably scrapped because it would have been too intense for a first level. You can still replicate it with gameshark codes and get the boat moving

That's not a mystery. It was supposed to be a super hard secret maze that possibly led players to a room that told them to call a number and say a word. If they did they would get a prize, but soon after the game came out hackers found a way to see all the sprites in the game and found it without actually completing the level so the competition was ultimately scrapped.

After watchin pannekoek's videos about textures and how the game handles camera angles, I noticed that was just the resting place for the fixed camera. It always starts at that height in the foyer.
Other areas with random/ weird walls protuding, ledges appearing or so on are also just camera spots. If you go on first person mode wherver there is a fixed camera and stare at it you can see the level takes on some odd geometry. Guess they just wanted to add some flavour to this one.

That makes sense. Tree meant to hint at wolves in the woods later gets removed for some reason and re-used on that little island. So many "mysteries" are little more than accidentally leaving in a prop from one level in a different one.
>>
>>5092928
yes... I think it was Aonuma that said they didn't believe that they could pull the "together".

There're a lot of patches in Ocarina of time... since the medallions used to be key items to enter dungeons and stuff... since they removed it, you had to play musics to open dungeons and stuff.

I'd love to play all of the betas, just to see how much it changed from the original vision/director...

Child Link wasn't supposed to be in the game, there's even one heart piece in Gerudo's... and that's why the Gerudos pass out, but don't die when you hit then with a bow... I deduced that they were supposed to be knocked down with the slingshot.

They do those "charity events" though, I'm sure some of them think that's actually doing something for some people. Keep in mind that the idea of "charity events" fools a lot of real adults in the respectable world - no, running a marathon does not help people in need, it's unrelated.

What the speed runners should do if they want to be taken seriously is first of all set aside an amount of time, let's say 30 hours a week, which you are not supposed to exceed. That's almost 4.5 hours a day, which is very generous to be devoting to any hobby, or you can do 9 hours every two days. While enforcement would be an issue, they could at least have the rules in place and the cheaters would know they were cheating. Because the way it is right now, it's all about pushing and incentivizing people to throw their lives away all for a little bit of attention, a little spot in the limelight. And you know these people don't have stellar social lives, it's basically the weakest people in society that are getting baited into this and before they know it they're 35 and have no discernible skills/accomplishments apart from a few world records on kirby and some japanese puzzle game noone ever heard of.

So a time limit would clean up their image quite a lot. Yes you can cheat, but it's a very loserly type of cheating. They might even take it further and insist that you must have employment or a steady source of income in the past 6 months to qualify but I don't know about this bit.
>>
>>5093250
they do speedruns and ask for donations and the donations go to cancer charities. is this not how agdq works?

so in a very and most incontrovertibly concrete way these guys *are* "doing something for some people".
>>
>>5093263
doesn't most of the money donated go to cost of running the event in the first place?
>>
>>5093263
But they're not doing anything directly for the charities, other people are donating to the charities. If they were donating to the players and then those players were giving to the charities in their own time then yes I guess you could say they are.

I not a great believer in doing something completely unrelated to to fundraise, like charity walks or the "ice bucket challenge", it doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

It brings in people to give money. No one is going to give $500k to a guy on YouTube for standing in a room talking about video games, barring ad revenue. Same thing with carnies, no one is going to give a carnie $10 unless they get to throw a bent dart at a balloon(or get a bag of weed from them). It's just a way to pay to get entertained, feel accomplished when they finally hand you a good dart/say they'll do something good with the money, and ultimately get to walk away with a fiberglass teddy bear or have your name mentioned in a video.

That being said I used to really like agdq, I got started watching them for that Mega Man X speed run. I was never into speed running before but I can blast through it in under an hour. I played that game every day after school between 94 and 96, eventually I ran out of paper to write my passwords for my current run on so I just started trying to beat the game in the hour and a half I had. I got it down so good I still had time to go out and throw a football through a tire swing. I honestly didn't even know people did things like that competitively til a few years ago. I can appreciate the effort and the techniques, the muscle memory. Fuck, I blogposted AND redditspaced.

>>5093312
Cancer charities are bullshit in general, how many middle men between Joe Citizen giving $5 and someone getting a cure? Even the final result after all "overheads" is still spent on some asshole professors BMW because even those noble, noble people gotta live in style.

Charities are bullshit in general anyway because people have a set dollar value on guilt, and if one charity takes that $ then the person doesnt feel the need to donate to some *other* charity. In other words, there is a certain amount that gets spent on charities every year, and them vying over it helps nobody.
>>

For the tree, as was mentioned earlier, it may have been a tree meant for the Lost Woods. It's also been thought that maybe it was meant to be something a different Water Temple boss may have done and it was just never fully fleshed out. The former is probably more likely though.

For the bird it kinda just makes sense that they wanted you to have a regular spot in Castle Town to check the time, or they wanted to teach you about the time cycle since it's early in the game.
>>
>>5094382
>>5094382
Yeah.

As far as I know at least half of the Shadow Temple is actually what Wind Temple used to be.

So the Forest Temple was never Wind temple, they just used the same medallion. I think that the Forest Temple was the place where the Master Sword was supposed to be sleeping. I don't think it used to be a dungeon at all.

That tree could be a mark that lead to the Master Sword and a Wolfos fight before acquiring it.

That would make sense with Zelda lore, the Master Sword is always in the florest...

And the Temple of Time was supposed to be the Light Temple... that Time Travel stuff was added after Miyamoto step in and changed the game for it to have Child Link.

So the Master Sword was never supposed to be on the Temple of Time (Light Temple).

Sure, I had a long description typed out for you but I got the captcha wrong and it was deleted so I'll be brief...

People once (maybe they still do, idk) postulated that there was a casino level in development, but scrapped before the creation of a level even took place.
Unused assets of interest include money and a gold bar. Both have to be gamesharked into your inventory, can not be picked up or interacted with. There is also the micro video camera, it's a little surveillance camera that you can gameshark into a level, then pick it up, equip it, and throw it like the tracker you throw onto the chopper in Frigate.
Also, Xenia's line in jungle is "This time the pleasure will be all mine"
>This time
You don't meet Xenia previous to the jungle yet she acts as if you have. Some guys thought that maybe you would meet her in casino and get video of her using the micro camera.
I'm not sure i even believe in the level, perhaps it was planned at some point, but I don't think the level was ever modelled or programmed into the game in any form

I looking for pictures... it appears to be removed... the remaster is very truthful to the source. So it was never supposed to be there...

It makes sense. The tree could be right in the middle of the first part of the meadow. There was no "locked door" and forced fight with the wolfos... but you could find them if you found the secret grotto.
>>
>>5099837
>Rainbow Room
I'm thinking more about it... there could be a Heart Piece inside the grotto. Also you could hookshot yourself to the top of the tree, giving access to the higher part of the level.

I SPENT SO MUCH FUCKING TIME SCOURING THE LEVEL TRYING TO FIND OUT HOW TO OPEN THIS
>>
>all of this Rare stuff
Why is everyone obsessed with Rare, and yet there's no content on Jet Force Gemini?

As a child I was always intrigued by the trees in the first level. I tried for hours to get into them, as they looked like they were openings into some kind of underground area.
And there was also that abandoned space station.

A lot of the game was kinda mysterious, now that I think back on it.

The control scheme for that game is the most mysterious of all.
>>
>>5093150
The thing is, you're not somebody's buddy just because you want to be and you're not a total asshole. Caveman put up with Chibi until his dopey reddit humor and observations started to get on his nerves, and started putting on the nonverbal warning signs of "you're annoying, buzz off." Chibi didn't get the picture from more subtle and face-saving rejection cues, so he had to just come out and tell him to shut up.

I feel like Chibi sympathizers are those kids who tried way too hard to ham-fistedly make people into their friends and could never understand why people didn't like them and see themselves in Chibi.
>>
>>5100371
You actually need to change the control scheme to "Expert" on the menu screen. It's actually game changing, since it lets you move in all 8 directions while you're in aim mode (in standard scheme, it only lets you move sideways, which is stupid and makes the game actually harder)
>>
>>5100461
Expert basically turns it into a twinstick FPS, where the left stick is the C-buttons.

As a child I played through the entire thing in standard mode. The aiming mode doesn't matter all that much, as ordinary gameplay can be done with 90% auto-aim and in boss fights you cannot move forward/backwards anyway.
>>
>>5100464
>The aiming mode doesn't matter all that much, as ordinary gameplay can be done with 90% auto-aim
Depends, there's many parts where you need to shoot a bunch of enemies from afar, auto-aim doesn't help, and being able to actually move around (to hid behind walls or dodge) makes the game a lot more playable than just being able to move sideways. You can toggle between aim-mode and normal mode to move around I guess, but it's better to just be able to move freely while on aiming.
I also played the game as a kid without knowing this though, it's doable, but less enjoyable.
>>
>>5100468
The only thing that drove me crazy as a kid was the part where you need to shoot the crystals so that the huge machine collects them.
I managed to do it once, then forgot to save because it took so much time.

As an adult I did it first try.

No longer a mystery, but i remember reading theories about "pika blue" before gen 2 pokemon came out. was pretty exciting.

the asking price for this damn game. why?

Pokegods are my childhood vidya mysteries.

If I was a jap and in charge of pkmn I would remake Gen1 and include the Pokegod shit but not tell anyone. Of course dataminers would find shit, but I think I could mitigate it.

It's not even THAT great of a game desu. It's fun for sure but it's piss easy so the replayability is pretty low.

What was the explanation?

which owl statue says this?

The explanation for this one is probably the same as the rest of the weird, odd shit in SoM: It was supposed to be a CD based game before the Sony/Nintendo deal fell through, and they had to cut a fuck ton of content.
>>
>>5101394
But there is no mystery or mystique there.

I think one near the swamp or the castle, can't remember exactly.

I spent countless hours at the library looking up shit like pikablu on old AngelFire websites. That and supposed Neopets cheats.
I did not spend my time wisely as a kid, but it sure was fun to read and try all that stuff. Missingno blew my mind and really got my imagination going regarding what kinds of secrets, glitches, and tricks could be hidden away inside video games, and it gave credence to all the more ridiculous theories.

Don't know if this counts as retro (I surely played it more than 18 years ago), but Tibia used to be full of those mysteries.
The community would go nuts investigating them, like this guy I remember that used the shovel in every single tile of the tutorial island (and got nothing to show for it), it was really fun. Too bad the rest of the game is shit

They used that line because she says the exact same line at that point in the movie.

However, it is plausible there were plans to use her earlier.

>>
>>5103864
Yeah I'm aware she uses the line in the movie... I was recalling the Goldeneye fanbases theory on the casino level and not what I personally think. My thoughts are that rare just used pre existing dialogue and didn't get caught up in the technicality that Xenia hadn't met bond previously.
However, 2005 was a different time and lots of us were pretty determined this casino level existed, lol

>>5100457
You're taking this way too seriously.
If you actually watch the video, both guys are awkward as fuck, if Caveman wasn't a turbo autismo, he could have find a way to deal with Chibi in a non-asshole way. However, we wouldn't have the meem now, so I'm glad the universe united the two of them so now we can have that moment recorded forever.

Non-autistic people
1. Don’t get irritated at a person’s lame attempt at humor, to the point of needing to verbalize it
2. Don’t express it in an emotionless, tone deaf, and completely direct manner
>>
>>5106089
I'm sorry that it triggered bad high school memories for you, but asking someone who's annoying you to leave you alone is not autistic.
>>
>>5106123
The manner in which he did so was very autistic.
>>
>>5106123
He's not wrong. He's not defending Chibi, but defending Caveman is the same.
Guy's way of communicating is cringeworthy. It's not just the "I'd prefer if you'd be quiet" line, most of the stuff he says sounds awkward and emotionless. Like he's trying to be a tough guy but he's just an autismo.
It's what makes the whole thing so funny though, the chemistry between these 2 autists.
>>
>>5092325
>>5092349
>>5093150
Thing is, if I recall correctly Chibbi (the left guy) wasn't even invited to sit on the couch. It was a late night run and he got away with just sitting down, grabbing a mic and doing unasked commentary on the game. He also went for the usual "twitch humor" at the time (X confirmed for Y, X Hype, etc) and cave was just not a fan of that. Instead of picking up that his "jokes" and comments weren't landing he just kept going hoping for a laugh, it's rather sad. Of course then viewers smelling the cringe potential started teasing him with comments until some mad lad got the idea to donate to make him do jumping jacks to annoy cave further.
And if anyone feels bad for him because he's just an autistic kid embarrassing himself on stream: Don't be. He was later found to cheat in his own speedruns and proceeded to lie about it when find out, until he was so cornered that he could do nothing but admit it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1BBiPeDXM0
