Wow that actually blew my mind. I loved spacing out to that music when I was tired and stuff back when I had one. Shit that's pretty awesome.

WHaaaat?! That is the craziest shit I've even seen.
I thought this was going to be the hold Z secret, but this is far more awesome.

Okay, that's it.  I'm finally going to buy a GameCube after not wanting to all these years and play that second Paper Mario game.

This reminds me of like some time last year when a designer on Punch-Out came out with this crazy way to cheat the game and knock out King Hippo in one hit that nobody'd ever noticed.

A long while ago?  I'd like to have a link to that or something because, as far as I know, it was discovered 2 weeks ago and I first read up on it on NeoGAF.

Holy crap. That is one of the coolest Easter Eggs I've seen in a while. Mad props to Nintendo for this.

#29 Posted by Deusoma (3004 posts) -

God damn, that's friggin' sweet. I like to imagine some music guy at Nintendo, maybe even someone who doesn't work there anymore, just giggling himself to sleep every night for the last nine years and checking off another day that nobody found it.

#30 Posted by pause422 (6178 posts) -

That is awesome.

#31 Posted by Kyreo (4600 posts) -

OR.... Nintendo is just too lazy to make a new "NO DISK" jingle.

#32 Posted by Strongbadman47 (154 posts) -

I thought it was going to be one of those NINTENDO IS THE DEVIL things. But this is awesome!

#33 Posted by Fripplebubby (1027 posts) -

Actually... COINCIDENCE!

I was utterly disappointed when I heard that. I suppose it was kinda cool, but I thought it was going to be totaka's song. Now that would have been awesome.
