hello and welcome to episode 13 of video
game Easter eggs the series where we uncover some of the best Easter eggs and
video games with the only rule being they cannot have been seen on my channel
before in today’s video we experiment with an abandoned nuclear bomb in Just
Cause 4 we are treated to a homemade music video in the fantastic control and
we discover yet another red balloon in Daymare 1998 if you think you know of an
easter egg that I’m yet to cover then the best place to let me know is on
Instagram Twitter or discord the links to all three are in the description oh
and if you do enjoy these videos then a like is hugely appreciated it really
does help a lot anyway without further delay let’s get started so first up
let’s start with a game I’m not sure many of you will have heard of Daymare 1998 is
a third-person survival horror game that aims to evoke the mood of the classic
survival horror titles of the 90s like Resident Evil and Silent Hill whilst it
doesn’t always achieve its goal puzzles are often confusing and make little to
no sense enemy design is a bit on the bland side and the less said about the
voice acting the better the Sacred Heart Hospital she’s going there and then
he’ll be there if you’re looking for a game to scratch that survival horror
itch before the Resident Evil three remake comes out you could do a lot
worse than Daymare 1998 when it comes to Easter eggs though it seems that the
Daymare developers followed the dummies guide to video game Easter eggs book to
a tee more on that in a bit first up at the
start of chapter 3 you wake up in an apartment upon further inspection you
can find several movie posters inspired by real-life films with classics like
face-on and dependence week in the next room we see that this is in fact the
workplace of invader studios the developers of Daymare 1998 along with
more movie posters my personal favorite being die soft you can also find a dead
invader studios employee so you know I mentioned that this game followed the
dummies guide to video game Easter eggs I meant that Daymare has two of the most
common references found in video games during chapter 2 you can find this surprise surprise a red balloon coming
from a drain so credit where it’s due the drain has a couple of rather creepy
looking eyes staring back at you along with the paper boat Georgie was seen
playing with in the 2017 film oh and if you shoot the balloon you also get the
what is it achievement the the final daymare 1998 Easter Egg well in this video
at least can be found during chapter three after restoring power to the gas
station head down to the garage and take a look inside so not only does this car
look incredibly similar to the DeLorean from the Back to the Future films but
next to the car you can find the flux capacitor which is used to power the
DeLorean in the films as if to hammer my point home even more this isn’t the
last that we’ll see of Back to the Future in this video right up next let’s
take a trip back to the gift that keeps on giving
gears 5 continued the Gears of War tradition of having great Easter eggs
but this next Easter egg is a little different if you load up the district
map in horde you can spot an arcade both entrances to the arcade are locked and
there seems to be no way in well if you shoot this sign a lot and I do mean a
lot it took nearly 400 bullets you will eventually hear this so it sounds like an arcade machine
every time you shoot the sign time to stock up on ammo and shoot the sign on
the other side to shoot that sign enough and this will happen so for some reason the doors on the arcade you blow up allowing you to enter this Easter eggs a
bit weird really after you’ve gained access to the arcade
there isn’t much you can do none of the machines can be interacted with and
there’s nothing of note in the room perhaps there’s more to this Easter Egg
than meets the eye up next is the brilliant control when the game launched
I rushed through it looking for Easter eggs meaning I didn’t really take the
time to appreciate just how good control actually is but it turns out after
going back and playing control over the Christmas break and enjoying it
immensely I missed quite a few Easter eggs on the first go-round the first of
which can be found at the very beginning of the game so on the surface of things this high
voltage sign may seem normal however it’s the 1.21 gigawatts that caught my
eye this is the required voltage for time travel in the backs of the future films up next a reference to one of the most iconic videogame characters ever in the black rock quarry you can find this so a crowbar pretty underwhelming just
because it’s a crowbar doesn’t mean it’s a reference to anything or anyone right
well if I told you that the name on the crowbar is freeman tools you know
who else uses a crowbar has a last name of freeman and is an iconic video game
character that’s right it’s big bird from Sesame Street no of course not this
is a nod to half-life protagonist Gordon Freeman and his trusty crowbar this
final control clip isn’t necessarily an easter egg but it’s something that a lot
of people might miss and it’s definitely worth sharing near the end of the game
you can enter a room in the motel and find this so that was a song about Jesse by dr.
darling the actor who played dr. darling in game Matthew poretta was
actually nominated for the best performance in video games at the 2019
game awards and control is full of tapes like this for players to find so last
year I made a video covering 15 Easter eggs in hunt showdown I thought I’d
covered all of the major discoveries in the game but it turned out I was wrong
near the Blanc binary you can find this so a lot of people believe this to be a
Bob Ross reference you know the famous American painter I mean it definitely
could be or it could just be a random man who decided to paint in the
wilderness who knows so the final game we’re taking a look at today is just
cause 4 again we’ve covered so many Easter eggs in Just Cause 4 but with
each update to the game comes more Easter eggs to find the first Easter Egg
can be found at this location and is going to take some explaining so somebody in a morphsuit dancing in a building under construction if you go
away and come back the color of the morphsuit will change but other than
that I have no idea what’s going on here this next Easter Egg is definitely a
contender for our saddest Easter eggs in video game series at this location
you can find this so I don’t really think this one needs
any explaining rest in peace Maddie the finally easter egg in today’s video will blow your socks off literally at this location you can find this So an abandoned nuclear bomb me being genius that I am I tried to shoot the bomb
but unfortunately nothing happened time to call in the big guns so after
shooting 25 missiles from an attack helicopter this happened even though we blew the bomb up if you
travel away from the area and it doesn’t need to be far away either the bomb will
respawn allowing you to blow it up again and again so that’s it for today’s video
