Not flipping thru the comments but I feel like its probably been said. You can get all the bonds with gameshark. I heard they were going to put them in the game but didn't for whatever reason and I'm guessing data miners found code or whatever to put put them in with gameshark.

I'm just surprised that I haven't seen anyone say anything about him saying that native Americans hunted buffalos... Bison are from the Americas not buffalos lol

You should've mentioned that Notch actually trolled Minecraft players by adding "removed Herobrine" to one of the changelogs.

TIP FOR KIDS: Never, never ever ever ever, EVER, believe the lying kid at school that says he’s seen these secrets himself (or his older brother has). It’ll save you hundreds of hours of your precious childhood. (And for you triggered retards that think this is some form of self-projection, don’t be mad that you wasted your entire life on a lie)

they actually gathered the bond actors and let them play themselves in the game. That's what I heard anyway. So it is sort of true it was just an exclusive thing.

A glitch in the Pokemon games could actually allow you to get Mew. Just pointing it out there.

I fell for Herobrine but not the part where it was Notch's dead brother. I just thought maybe there had to be an arch nemisis type boss in the game (there was no Ender Dragon at the time) and it kinda made sense to me. Of couse I learned early on it was during the testing so I thought maybe it was cut but you would think maybe they just disabled it or something and the code was still there by a chance . At the time it made sense. Imagine if it was real...an ultimate boss that was basicly the rarest mob... anyway after trying a bunch of shit I realized it wasn't true...

Catch an Abra in Red or Blue. There's a trainer in the grass to the left of Cerulean Bridge. Step out in front of him and press start before he initiates a battle. Use Abra's Teleport. Go back along Cerulean bridge and find a trainer along to the right. Beat him. Teleport back to the Pokemon Centre. Walk back up Cerulean Bridge and it'll trigger a wild Pokemon battle. The Pokemon that appears depends on which trainer you beat, but you can use this technique as many times as you need until you run out of trainers to beat. Easy as that. Also, one of the Pokemon you'll encounter this way is a Cubone that can learn Water Gun via TM, so... There's that.

Always thought it'd be cool if a game like GTA, Fallout, or Skyrim where you have this massive open world that certain game copies (maybe 1 in every 1,000) would get this kind of 'bigfoot' type creature sighting. Just enough that people will flare up rumors but not enough of people doing the same thing to trigger the event or what have you. Or having games run on different timers to accomplish the same thing so the same time trigger for one doesn't necessarily work on another the same way, just to add some misdirection and confusion.

Not a huge one but the rumour that you could play as super Saiyan 4 goku in the original budokai was one I spent a good amount of time on. Also another obscure one trying to destroy the star destroyer in the final space battle in shadows of the empire.

Btw. You can get mew in Red and Blue. The exploit requires skipping a specific trainer north of cerulean (youngster w/slowpoke). Look it up.

Almost everything you said about pokemon was wrong I'm impressed the only thing right was the truck there actually is a bug to allow you to catch new and in the red/blue gold/silver fire red/leaf green hand books they all have a small little tip that says holding down on the d pad down button and tapping a and b was designed to make capture slightly ealsyer it is an internal thing to make it easy for younger players you can also battle prof oak through a bug and the ratacate was debunked Blue stopped using it because it had reached its limits for usefulness he had a few pokemon deping which game that where only temperarly on his team he him slef said so at the end of the game he talks about making multiple teams to find the strongest the player being Blue's rival only sees his strongest pokemon

Honorable mention to another EGM's hoax, Play as Akuma in Resident Evil 2. I wasn't familiar with the "April Fools Day" thing, and I didn't have the game to test it out, I was fooled for many many years and just recently realized it was a joke.

All Bonds were eventually released on Perfect Dark, however due to licensing issues, the dev team choose to name the characters "Dinner Jacket" instead of Connery, Moore and Dalton.
Paul Stephens (5 months ago)
whilst the mew under the truck was a hoax, you can get Mew in the original red and blue by performing the abra teleportation glitch right when a trainer spots you.

There was a legit way to get Mew eventually discovered, but it was even crazier. It was finally discovered in like 2008 or some shit

The all bond cheat is true...... I think you need a GameShark or its a button combination because there are a bunch of characters you can play as that is on the cartridge..... I know because me and my brother and cousins use to play this...... Maybe the cheat isn't available in the UK version but I know for a fact we had that.....

Yeah, totally forgot about that. There were apparently "ghosts" in Halo CE and Halo 2 as well though. This should've at least been an honorable mention.
