A Very Well Hidden Tease [Batman: Arkham Asylum]
Sometimes Easter eggs are just too well-hidden, and this ingenious tease hidden in Batman: Arkham Asylum proves that. Nobody was able to find this hidden room until the developers spilled the beans near the sequel’s release — and there’s a good reasons why nobody found it.
The room itself is a small area with a blueprint, showing off the map layout of Arkham City — the massive temporary prison where criminals are confined in the sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum. It’s a great tease, but to find it, you had to bomb a specific unmarked wall multiple times. Not just once! Unless you were going around bombing all the walls several times, nobody was every going to find this secret without some outside assistance.
Keep Playing After A Game Over [Super Mario Bros.]
Let’s start with something easy. In Super Mario Bros. for NES, if you hold [A Button] + [Start] you can immediately start from where you left off after a game over. This is something I had no idea about for the longest time — and apparently a lot of people like me were in the same boat. It’s an insanely powerful code, and it’s so easy! Why had we never heard about it?!
Some of us were just born too late. When Super Mario Bros. was originally released in 1985, Nintendo Power and other gaming magazines widely shared this code. But, if you were around during the dark days when internet wasn’t everywhere in the 90s, this is one secret a lot of us missed. We all played this game, we all know about the secret warps, but a simple continue code? I never knew!
