Capn_Ascii Posted February 12, 2013 Report Share Posted February 12, 2013 Alright, here's one that you guys might find interesting. I've been in e-mail communication for years now with an old friend of mine from the old era of the SQ fandom. He's requested that I not mention him by name, as he prefers to play the role of shadowy lurker in today's SQ community, but like me, he's both an avid SQ fan and a rabid gamer. Recently, both he and I played a little game called Retro City Rampage. The game is basically what Grand Theft Auto would have been if it had been made back in the glory days of the original NES - gorgeous 8-bit graphics, addictive square wave tunes, the whole shebang. B) Perhaps more importantly, the game was made by a lifetime gamer like us, and is thus chock-full of video game references ranging from the old-school arcade era all the way up to modern gaming. Anywho, as I was corresponding with my aforementioned friend, he pointed out to me a rather interesting object in the city junkyard: To the left, right next to the cartoon ACME rocket. Looks familiar, doesn't it? ;) Normally, I'd be tempted to write this off as a coincidence, but given the location (a junkyard) and that RCR is chock-full of other, more overt references to adventure gaming, I think it's pretty obvious that this one is intentional. It's always a treat when an old-school fan manages to sneak stuff like this into a game. :lol: MusicallyInspired 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
