    BeeJeez what a cryptic easter egg!

    No way, I mean no way would that have ever been discovered without picking apart the code!

    Let alone hard, it's pretty much pointless. They should have at least said something funny.

    ya, even if it some lame message, that might have made it a tad worthit but then again, even the coder mentioned that the easter egg is totally not worth it, so...

    They should have made that easter egg reference to the future like the n64 or something.

    While the easter egg isn't that great, I still think it's pretty awesome it was hidden for so many years. Makes you wonder how many other old games have easter eggs that have yet to be discovered.

    I'm 99% sure that even if I DID manage to achieve that easter egg by accident, I wouldn't even notice it [​IMG]

    This is when you have something like a nudie run across the screen shouting obscenities--not like the rating team would ever figure it out :3
