    Oddheader is seriously the only Clip-Sharer that I know who actually covers stuff that I've never heard of

      The fact this man still has stuff to cover shows how much research he actually does.
      Mad respect.

      Even better is if you did know about it he usually covers how it was found/ how to find it or obscure facts like how yummer from that SpongeBob game was found in more than one level

    I have a theory for the buttons in the UBFunky game.
    It's just a tracker that developers like to have in their games, even if it's pointless. Kind of like how Dark Souls 2 has a global counter for deaths in the game and how websites used to have a tracker of how many "hits" they had.
    So it's likely just a thing the developers wanted to see, like "How many people would push this pointless button?" and then smile when they see the button has been pressed billions of times by millions of players.

      @__sweat boba tea__UWU Maybe? It might be interesting (or sad) to see what's the largest amount of times anyone pushed 'em.

      Zeallust Year ago +56

      DS2s global death count did have a purpose though, the team who made the game were obsessed with how hard Dark Souls was. And they wanted a way for people to see the gimmick of death. (I love ds2 btw, this isnt hate)

      it probably was intended to do something originally but then whatever it was intended to do got scrapped or never happened.

    The pool of forgetfulness was most likely gonna be for resetting all your stats. In Morrowind Multiplayer Nerevarine Prophecies they made it into a working reset tool.

      I found the halo reach elites having organs and flesh as a texture on top of the first person lower body model. I was exited and was eager to get it out there....took me months to get a Clip-Sharers attention to make the vid so it could be on Clip-Share.

    I remember when Oddheader was experimenting with hidden things in movies because he was running out of game-related content to show. Now he is the go-to channel for gaming mysteries and always shows us stuff no other channel has covered before.

    The Beaverhouse Year ago +133

    Regarding the No Man's Sky "mystery," I honestly see that one as a bit of a non-entry. Speaking as somebody who plays the game regularly, the Anomalous Number Station is just one of SEVERAL space anomalies that don't actually do anything and never have. Which in themselves are one of several random objects in the game that never served any real purpose beyond worldbuilding. My takeaway is that it's either just that, worldbuilding, or a feature that's only been partially implemented such as the Station Core. (Which actually has associated items given to you during expeditions that ALSO currently serve no purpose)

    • Raelexx
      Raelexx Year ago +8

      Yep. Tons of these things and whichever thing you get be it a giant space worm, a listening post or a destroyed freighter, there are many mysteries in the infinite.

    • grievousx
      grievousx Year ago +6

      Apparently, converting the numbers from the Anomalous Numbers Stations can be converted to hexadecimal codes, which can then be used on the Galactic Atlas site and converted to system coordinates. Has anyone found anything specific that they lead to? Nah. CAN they lead somewhere given some screwing around? Sure. In my opinion it's a good way to try and get you outside your comfort zone, I tend to stick to a cluster of systems and this would be a great way to get to a whole new part of a galaxy to explore.

    • The Beaverhouse
      The Beaverhouse Year ago

      Interesting. Do these lead to like.. valid systems in the portal network, or does it act like it does when you punch in a random address? Cause a portal will always take you SOMEWHERE, regardless of what you give it. It will however give you an error before doing so.

    • grievousx
      grievousx Year ago

      @The Beaverhouse I can't say for sure whether it leads to valid addresses or it just gives you the approximate address, I haven't tried it for myself. Next time I find a numbers station I'll try to remember to come back and let you know.

    • A Very Purple Ostrich
      A Very Purple Ostrich Year ago

      @grievousx you're thinking of the hyperspace navigation stations. And as far as I know, the coordinates just lead to a random nearby system.

      It’s crazy how well he landed into this niche which dominated old Clip-Share. It’s not even like he’s documenting old game myths, the community that latched onto this seems to find new ones all the time. It’s like a beacon for glitch hunters.

    Comment Year ago +615

    10:57 The author said that the book is named Ring due to way it spreads. Ring is not only the name of the virus. In the novel, the original film, and the remake, there were various things the word Ring related to. The phone "rings" for example.
    It seems pretty obvious that the silver ring is a joke. Especially since the description says it's Sadako's Ring.

    • Fatal Felix
      Fatal Felix Year ago +7

      I just wanted to add that the final book of the ring series "Loop" summarize that it really is a simulation so I think its all kinda related?

    • Mar Hawkman
      Mar Hawkman Year ago

      wait, the silver ring belonging to Sadako suddenly makes a lot more sense. It's just an easter egg, but as a useless item you can pick up.

    • k4rec4
      k4rec4 11 months ago +2

      I would've said that if you didn't... It seems 'The Ring' actually is a reference to a bunch of things related to the case: the small group of people involved, the sunbeam through the well's cover, and, specially, the phone's ring sound.

    Death Stranding is about beings passing into our world from a place called the beach, whilst the main character is trying to prevent an extinction level event, whilst trying to subdue said entities. This is probably the simplest way I can explain the story, without spoiling it too much.

    • L16htW4rr10r

      Im still confused why it was a beach though

      I just had to double check , I thought he was at 1.14m or something like that! I agree, great channel , def deserves all the subs he has

    • Thiago Meneghetti

      Im sure he will double it if he posted more often, but then I imagine the quality and depfht of information will be gone, anyway love this guy

    • Jim, the Curator
      Jim, the Curator Year ago

      Don't quote me here but I think when I subbed he was at like 20K subs. It's good to see this channel grow, he really deserves it. Quality content, concise runtimes, genuine humor, good BG music, covers mysteries I actually haven't heard of elsewhere. If he ever branches out beyond video game / lost media mysteries, I'm 100% down.

    The pause quit bug in cave story 3d is so fun to mess around with. You can actually get the beast fang many ways using that bug, the prefab house is just a simple one.

    • Silverizael
      Silverizael Year ago +62

      Which really does imply that, at least for 3D, the beast fang was just included as the error bug response if you break the game in some way. There's likely nothing deeper to it than that.

    • Miller Wright
      Miller Wright Year ago +69

      @Silverizael Well to be fair, the fang is actually in the exact same place as the original game. The pause quit bug just lets you apply the flags of one room to another, so you can put it "in bounds".

  • Firstname Lastname
    Firstname Lastname Year ago +307

    About the Golden Owl one:
    In the book being referenced, isn't finding the golden owl the objective?
    I'm pretty sure that means there is no other step in the game. The owl statue was the reward. Not sure why you'd think finding the owl statue would be the start of a scavenger hunt. That would be the exact opposite of what it's referencing.

      @nabil What the heck?!?! Are you a bot or something?

    • Mad Hatter

      Just what I was thinking. The owl is probably the prize at the end of a short hunt, not a clue at the beginning of a long one.

      @Chocov 123 Yes.

  • Wesley Files

    I think this Ring game is based on a Japan only novel from the franchise, where the curse is spread through a video game. So it's way more true to the source material than it seems.

    • Scary Stories At 2AM

    Interesting thing for those who dont know: the panties in Cave Story were actually given a purpose in Cave Story+. They unlock Curly Story, a retelling of the game but Curly and the protagonist are swapped. Dont know why they existed in the original release though, it's probably just a joke. Also, another item exists like that, if you sleep in the bed in Chako's House after interacting with her lit fireplace, you get her lipstick. Odd, but funny.

    The flesh blob on the ground in the Vr game might be a refrence to "Inside" by playdead, where at the end of the game you die on a field as a big flesh ball. Battery might be another hint as a secret ending in the game is where you basically unplug yourself from the game, knowing u were just a drone.

    • srs bness

    People were disappointed the mystery box contained warm socks, but just think about it. In a post apocalyptic world, they probably rely on fire for warmth, and fire as a heat source isn't exactly something you can just carry around anywhere. A pair of warm socks would be a godsend for situation where you're trapped in a snowy tundra where the cold penetrates your boots. You can't run and you can barely walk if you have frostbiten feet, so warm socks become as underrated as toilet paper or glasses cleaning solution in an apocalypse.

    Morrowind modder here; the pool of forgetfulness is just something we kinda never pay attention to.
    It's been used in a few quest mods but no attempt to look into its actual purpose has been made because there isn't much to go on.
    It's not mentioned in dialogue or any books, though there is evidence to suggest the player would have the opportunity to join the Sixth House so it might have been related to that.

    To be fair if you read the Ring Trilogy novel, The Ring is definitely a memetic death matrix thing that is also a virus.
    Although the novel describes Ring/Sadako as a virus, it spreads itself through media; the tapes and according to the sequel Spiral, the first novel "Ring" **and** all subsequent Ring adaptations. It is not the curse that killed people, but if I recall correctly a cardiac arrest where they found a lump of ring shaped tumor in the heart system.
    I don't know the plot of the game version of The Ring, but Sadako died after being r*p*d by a doctor / scientist who had smallpox and dumped into a well, where her vengeful psychic spirit, love for media / theatre, and the smallpox virus combined into a memetic virus.
    So maybe the ring is kept by the scientist responsible for the creation of Sadako?

    As an elder scrolls turbonerd, I can all but guess the meaning of the Pool Of Forgetfulness.
    Early in develop of Morrowind, House Dagoth was actually a joinable faction. You could become a dreamer and fight the tribunal and the empire, rather than work to unite Morrowind and stop Dagoth Ur. Given the constraints of the time period of the game's development, this was ultimately scrapped because of the logistics of having such a dramatically branching storyline.
    That said, there are a number of quests, interactions, dialogue, and even bits of code that serve as hints towards this early vision of the game. Most theorists believe the Pool of Forgetfulness was part of this early design (given Sharapli's location, ease of access, and the lack of high leveled 6th House agents like Ghouls or Vampires) where you would join the 6th House. Which would make sense that, as an early House Dagoth quest, it would have been one of the first things made before the plans were scrapped.
    Plus, people have asked Michael Kirkbride (the guy responsible for Morrowind's lore and much of its writings), and he doesn't remember. So lol.

    As a professional game dev myself, the radio thing is intriguing but the programming isn’t that weird. The only thing that raises an alarm for me is the use of the word “secret” to mark the event data. My guess is that it might be a leftover of a test feature. But weighted randomness is common when you’re showing an item from a list of random assets. You want to show the best takes more often.
    But even then, a feature goes through multiple iterations and you might end up with a system that’s no longer needed for the feature (e.g. weighted randomness)...and might just use it for the heck of it anyway.
    As for the game crashing when you take a radio somewhere else...I’ve seen that a lot. That’s probably a feature with faulty wiring for the dependencies. Probably something that didn’t come up in testing, or was in the backlog and I’d imagine there to be a lot more important bugs to fix near release.
    P.s. great stuff!

    The panties you can find, in cave story actually unlock a mode where you can play as Curly Brace rather then Quote. In the steam version at least. I think it even gives you an achievement.

    • NinjaKIngAce

    I adored UB Funkeys and remembered wondering about those buttons too! There was also a semi easter egg/cheat that would allow you to gain UB Funkeys in-game that you never purchased from a store. I only know this from this one gate in one of the worlds that required a absurd about of Funkeys to open.
    You had to lick any one of the smaller UB Funkeys that you had and place back on the larger base one.
    It gave me a headache and a strong metal taste in my mouth but eventually it really *worked*

It was crazy but I'm lucky to be alive with all the dumb stuff I've done haha

    I recently started playing Road 96. During one "level", I was with Alex in a restaurant. We went behind it into this smaller building. I was looking through one of the cardboard boxes and spotted a picture that looked eerily similar to he late Budd Dwyer. I googled it, and it is in fact Budd Dwyer. Has anyone else spotted this?

    Has anyone considered the Half-Life Alyx secret to be a cryptographic secret? It's believable to me that "A14", "D7", "B4" can be part of a hexadecimal string, the most common format for storing these

    • Gustavo Dutra
      Gustavo Dutra Year ago +2

      There must be an file in the game that when you search in that hexadecimal thing it shows a clue or something like that

    • Requiem for a Meme
      Requiem for a Meme 4 months ago

      I think it's a type of UTF encoding, however "A14" throws that for a loop sort of.
      In the transcriptions of the synthy_ID files, there are simple patterns being repeated if you plot the alphabet out. Some examples:
      synthy_01 ("SW TX UY"): Each first character moves 4 characters to the right (if S = W then V = Z for example).
      synthy_02 ("SPTQU"): The pattern is Left 3, Right 4. (Continuing this pattern leads to R as it is 3 Left from the letter U).
      I'll edit this post if I find anything, but I'm only going off an old Reddit post as the game itself makes me puke (motion sickness, I'd probably like the game).
      Edit: Think I figured it out. If you keep going with this pattern of logic you will get an instruction... or at least, a button.

    • rollanddev
      rollanddev 24 days ago

      "A14" breaks that hypothesis pretty hard. 14 is "E" in hex, not "14".

    • Art Kholodov
      Art Kholodov 24 days ago

      @rollanddev Not necessarily, A14 is a perfectly valid hexadecimal representation of a 12 bit number:
      A 1 4
      = 1010 0001 0100
      Combining the 3 constant sequences we get 28 bits of information total, which while uncommon in cryptography is seen in DES, which uses 2 28 bit keys individually as the basis of a key rotation schedule implementation.
      To be clear I highly doubt that's what's going on here, just wanted to point out it is not entirely outside the realm of possibility

    Love the content, always “Odd” and extremely interesting. I love HZD, I set about trying to platinum trophy the game not long after it came out. In my opinion it’s one of the easier ones to platinum trophy. In my quest for 100% I came upon a mysterious item known only as the “Warm Socks.” I was dumbfounded to say the least. No one knew what they were. Everyone online had no idea, and developers only said they wouldn’t comment on it. This was a little while before I and I’m pretty sure some other people knew that there was going to be a definitive DLC, and not just some minor content added. Then all of a sudden BAM!!! The new DLC is confirmed, and where was it set to take place? The Frozen Wilds baby!!! And I realized “huh, the developers actually foreshadowed their own DLC.” You can only access this item near the end of the main story. I felt like the developers were subtly telling the players “hey congratulations for all your hard work and taking the time to explore our game. Here’s a seemingly useless item that Aloy would need for where she’s going.” Cause I don’t know about most people, but if I’m going somewhere cold. I’m taking some damn warm socks. That’s just my opinion for what the purpose of the sock were for, and it’s honestly helped me sleep a little easier thinking that way. As for the Death Stranding. I believe that was partly an HZD Easter Egg with a funny nod to everyone’s frustration on the socks. And partly Kojima’s awkward foot fetish. Done ranting now. Thanks for awesome content and keep up the amazing work.

    The Accounting Plus creature is called “mother” it is related/inspired by the beached thing KOS from PS4 game Bloodborne. Also not sure if they were joking but Tree Guy and the Mother are the parents of King of VR.

    • TrixterBambi
      TrixterBambi Year ago +21

      Interestingly, the reason there's a baby carriage and the battery takes you to the main menu is because Kos is a mother whose baby (Orphan of Kos) crawls out of her to fight the player. Defeating the Orphan destroys the Hunter's Nightmare (the setting of the DLC) because it was created in the process of its inhabitants doing crazy shit to Kos. By taking the battery out, you take out what's powering the Nightmare. (BONUS: Throwing the seed in the planter is reminiscent of an Amygdala carrying you and dropping you into the Nightmare to begin the DLC)
      None of this has anything to do with Accounting, but Bloodborne is just an amazing game. Would love it if more games referenced FromSoft games besides the obvious bonfire.

    Something I find interesting with the Pool of Forgetfulness is that in the Elder Scrolls, water either is memories, or that memories take the form of water, or maybe the ocean is filled with memories... It's a bit unclear, but regardless, memory is directly linked with water.
    So a source of water that is linked to forgetfulness -- which I assume means that drinking or bathing in the water causes one to lose memories -- is certainly an interesting concept.

    The HL:A radios could be a nod to a similar mystery from HL2, that being the strange unplugged television in the chapter "Anticitizen One", that shows the G-Man standing on a rowboat with a crow on his shoulder, all while dissonant music plays.

    The NMS thing, if you mine asteroids, you can get a thing called an Anomaly Detector, and it's fairly easy to clone objects in the game. After using the detector probably an easy 50+ times, I've seen the number station only a handful of times. But it is an easier way to find the number station, along with a bunch of other weird things, including a containment chamber. The chamber seems to add new things into the empty spaces as well, bc after the recent Sand-Worm update, now one can be seen in said chamber. It's super helpful to get an Anomaly Detector.

    I ran into one of those bizarre number stations in No Man's Sky myself but like everyone else had no clue what its for! After some thought I believe its more of a nod to the lore. I dont want to spoil anything so all I'll say is I think its meant to be a way to send messages between Atlas and an important being to The Atlas, which is why there is never a reply. It only sends out a coded message. I dont think there will ever actually be something we do with it. Puzzles like that haven't ever been in No Man's Sky.
    Regardless, I'm assuming people have already bugged Sean Murray about it on Twitter? In case y'all didn't know, the emojis he uses in some of his Tweets have ended up being clues. If you see someone asking him about the number stations, take note if he replies with an emoji!

    Oh my God! UB Funkeys! I remember that! I used to have a few of the figurines, and I played it myself, until I lost the giant Hub connecter thing.... the Giant Funkey, ig. I loved this game. It's sad to hear that it went defunct in 2010 though. It seems like a lot of my favorite childhood games are shut down now. UB Funkeys, Super Hero Squad Online, Club Penguin. It's just sad. And TWO of those were shut down thanks to Disney! Dumb bastards. I'd honestly still give them my money to play SHSO again. I put so many hours into that game, from 2011 to 2015, it was insane. I had collected so many characters, had so much silver (until they replaced silver with fractals, which I ALSO had a lot of), and i was a member, so I was constantly getting gold as well! God, I miss that one the most! 😭💔

  • Mega Dick 6 Billion

    As for the beast fang, I think it was generally a joke referencing how you weren't supposed to get it, but as for why it's there, likely one of those cases in which they have it specifically to avoid you getting a crash or something similar over a null value. If I'm correct (and I very well might not be) the beast fang could be achieved through any other glitch that gives you an item value the game sees as null.

    I have a theory for the road 96 owl, in the original trail of the golden owl a bronze owl was buried were the clues all lead up to. If you return the bronze owl to Becker’s (the creator of the puzzle) legal protector, you will be declared the winner and receive the golden owl. I wonder if you take the owl in the game and give it to someone (if that is possible in the game ) than something will happen, or a second owl will spawn in.

    Also, the silver ring in the crazy Ring spinoff game says it apparently belonged to Sadako Yamamura, who is the OG Ring girl. So, pretty sure that's just a standard egg, referencing the origin of all Ring related fiction. It feels like a bit of a Japanese pun, too. You found Sadako's literal ring. That's funny to me, anyway.

    regarding the beast fang: cave story was originally a japanese game, and has two translations - the fanmade one for the original freeware game, and the one made by nicalis, the company who bought the rights. the beast fang event and inventory description were updated to reference its unused nature in the nicalis translation, if you manage to obtain it in any of the official ports, it will have that description - and it wasn't deliberately added to CS3D, it just uses the original scripts which contain both dialogue and events to obtain items
    as for the beast fang itself, it's most likely just a scrapped item that pixel didn't remove or null out for whatever reason, the game's full of things like that :P
    (tdlr: unused item with a self-aware description carried over from the original game due to how CS3D works internally)

      I'll share what I had found last week:
      While pulse driving, I had found one of those Civilization Shelter Pods, a pretty common anomaly encounter that doesn't really do anything besides give you some Portal glyph codes. Now, what was strange about this specific pod was that it had an entry point, similar to a space station's or the Nexus', that I was able to fly into.
      (My game instantly froze and crashed shortly after my ship had initiated the landing sequence.)
      I assume that it's just an unfinished function for the Station Override item.

    5:30 Wait… Horizon Zero Dawn is _one_ of your favorite recent games about a post apocalyptic Western United States where society has fallen and become overrrun by sentient robot beasts? Can you tell me what your top 5 are in that genre?

      I was about to say that you could add Nier Automata to that list. Then I remembered it canonically takes place in Japan

    7:54 Anyone notice how the UI says "ODDHEADER RULES" on the top left corner? I definitely agree with it, easter eggs are cool as hell.

      Whoever made Road 96 must've noticed him.

    If The Ring in The Ring Terrors Realm is a weird cyber matrix thing, then that's actually pretty close to the source material not the other way around, the books sequels dealt with the Ring virus expanding into a virtual space like that.
