The largest N64 games were Resident Evil 2, Pokemon Stadium 2, and Conker's Bad Fur Day at 64 MB. Super Mario 64 was around 8 MB.

Because Final Fantasy III and V were not localized until much later, the first game released in the U.S. to feature Moogles was Secret of Mana.

Apparently Super Mario Odyssey has a lot of obscure call-backs to previous games. Such as this one with Pauline:
Spoiler.

(I don't think this really qualifies as a spoiler, but just being safe.)

In the German version of Yoshi's Island, the level "Touch Fuzzy, Get Dizzy" is named "Lustiges Sporen Drama".

Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell also founded Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza.

Taiko no Tatsujin V-Version is the only Taiko game for the Vita, and only the second entry in the series to release on a Sony platform after 2006. Although only one other song has even two versions unlocked from the start ("Senbonzakura") and no other game or anime has multiple versions, the game features no less than three covers of the Ridge Racer theme, two of which have the "RIIIIIDGE RAAACER" vocals. Coincidence?


(maybe Namco will bring Taiko to the West again if I talk about it more. Come on, guys - the handheld games were one thing, but how am I ever going to fit those Wii and Wii U kits in an airplane bag?)

Okay, you have me...

...you lost me. What do other games and animes have to do with what? What's the coincidence?

I left out a word. Meant to say that no no other game or anime song has multiple versions. Ridge Racer is the only time they repeat source material with the starter songs, and they repeat it three times.

As for the coincidence, Sony's 2006 E3 conference was this one:

RIIIIDGE RAAAACER



(And it's almost definitely just a coincidence, but a funny one from a Western perspective where that meme is much better known than RR itself)

Every time you collect a Power Moon in Super Mario Odyssey, Mario will randomly make a rock, paper, or scissors sign.

Sega of America was approached by Silicon Graphics (who ended up working with the n64) for its third generation console. Sega of America gave the idea to its Japan team, who rejected the idea out of jealousy with SOA's success. What came out of all this? The Sega Saturn of course, one of the biggest failures in the console market. So yeah, you can blame Sega's failure on pettiness and internal jealousy.
