Mr. Purple Cat Esq. Hahahaha. Holy shit. Ive seen some of this guys videos about hacking 'impossible' features onto those early consoles, like demo-scene type stuff. I had no idea he was mental.
Redford I don't think this guy is mental just because he likes to hide godjesus in his video games.
boner I did find it funny that he got a lot of subscribers by talking about technical stuff and then out of the blue this Jesus stuff comes out.
boner The guy has some balls, you can get fired for stuff like this.
badideasinaction I don't think this guy is worried at all about his employment status at this point: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Burton
Chancho Heh, I've hidden shitloads of stuff in games. A few things would get me fired.
I did get caught trying to sneak something into a bit of graffiti on a wall. It was an inside joke about a particularly unique smelling fart made by a co-worker late one night. I didn't use the word fart but it was just weird so the producer yanked it.
I almost hid some Masonic stuff just for a laugh but I knew that would drive the kooks bonkers and bring too much heat.
Chicken the Did I'm with Disney with changing the message. Especially since no loving god had ANYTHING to do with the Toy Story games. Ugh.
Old_Zircon Man, game companies are uptight compared to other sorts of tech companies.
I know for a fact (from many people who work there) that the now-beloved Alesis Bitrman got its name because the other engineers didn't like the guy who wrote the code for it and named it after his personality.
And the hated Akai Rhythm Wolf got its name from an old friend of mine and a few other product testers and engineers having a running contest to see who could come up with the worst product names. That was the reigning champion and they ended up using it as a joke. The product is as bad as the name by most accounts.
And, I mean, those companies have had completely toxic workplaces for years but it couldn't be any worse than a lot of major game studios.
