Twitter has a lot of useless knowledge about video gamesThank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
It’s right there in the Bible– ask and it shall be given to you. It’s also right there on Twitter for gaming, where the little gaming podcast Super Pod Saga poses innocent question on Jan. 15, and people showed up to answer in droves, “What’s the most useless video game knowledge you know?”
Apparently, there are a lot of people who think very useless thoughts about video games. Who knew? In the week and a half since posting, Super Pod Saga has received over ten thousand replies to its tweet. But many of them, I would say, are not necessarily useless, but they are essential.
Undertake this answer about action-adventure series Devil May Cry, for example: “Dante and Virgil have a crazy healing factor that essentially heals while the damage is being dealt, so there are no wounds or scars. Therefore, they are probably uncircumcised.
tell me honestly What should I have done if I had never read this? You never know if Dante and Virgil are circumcised or not? To be forced to wander the Earth, alone forever in my confusion? Can you even imagine that?
Or how about this: “Inside Xenoblade 3, all characters in the game files are listed with a gender number. Zero is male, One is female; however, the character Juniper is listed as two. In addition, in Xenoblade 2, the gender of the character Roc is listed as four. Thus there are at least five genders Xenoblade.” I mean, it’s just inspiring.
Ah, the whiff of femininity! Dinosaurs!
my city employees also stick to information about their own video game niche. I know this because I asked them to tell me in my quest for self-actualization.
“The li’l fire breathing dinosaur from Super Mario World is named after the Nine Inch Nails singer,” social media editor Jeb Bigart told me. “I feel pretty useless.”
Yes, great stuff. More, give me more.
“IN Halo 2 level Quarantine, Flood [parasitic creatures] can be seen driving around in Warthogs/tanks/etc. It is the only time in the series where they do that, and it’s really weird,” said staff writer Zach Zwiesen.
“The music on the NES Back to the Future, terribly unpleasant, featuring a recurring theme that bears no immediate resemblance to anything, is actually an extremely sped-up version of the hit song from the movie ‘The Power of Love’ by Huey Lewis and the News,” said Editor-in-Chief Carolyn Pettit. “Maybe because they programmed the music, but then they realized they didn’t have the rights to the song, so they just sped it up. I don’t know the reason for that.”
Thank you all. My strength is growing. My mind is expanding. My trivia senses are tingling.
Now, what’s your favorite piece of random video game knowledge? Let it go, it’s for my health.
