Prerelease Stuff

Stuff I'm aware of as being on this very Wiki.

Fun Audiovisual Stuff :)

  • From EarthBound Central, a "Happy 1995!" card from APE and Mother 2, using the game's art style to show a Wintertime Onett with quite a few custom sprites. Not sure if it'd count as prerelease material, but it's definitely worth a look. :)
  • Unseen 64 page on the tech demo of the unreleased Genesis Lufia & The Fortress of Doom port, which had been leaked by the port's programmer; said programmer was given just six months to make said port, and per him "there was no way in hell I could have done it since all the original SNES code was fucking indecipherable and the Japan programmers weren't any help." While the tech demo consists of the title screen and a testing dungeon, given what this site's turned up I wouldn't be surprised if there's some unused stuff just below the surface.
    • The port was originally scheduled for release in December 1994 (presumably alongside the localized SNES game), but was later pushed to Spring '95 before being canned.

Blog links

Huge sites (set aside some time for these)

  • Hardcore Gaming 101 (lots of game articles {individual games, franchises, companies, etc.}, book reviews, analysis...there's well over 1,000 pages here)
  • The Video Game Critic (reviews of a lot of video games ranging from the 1970s to today)
  • Chris Covell's website (lots of fun game- and Japan-related stuff, including scans and analysis of various Japanese gaming magazines from about 1986-93 {along with two children's picture books that involved the making of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Dragon Quest VI, respectively})

TAS-related stuff

  • TAS of Tetris (NES) by quad8 (specifically, "fastest 335 levels"; the game pieces start getting some weird color palettes after 1,380 lines are cleared)

YouTube videos/channels

  • Super Mario Bros. 3 Game Genie code to control the music using A, B, and the D-Pad (nensondubois; his channel's full of good stuff, but this is one that isn't exactly related to showing off unused content)
  • Xkeeper's YouTube channel (lots of fun stuff, mainly regarding game corruption and the weirdness that ensues)
  • Chris Covell's YouTube channel (Japanese video game tapes, mostly Famimaga and GTV/GameTV, from about 1988-92; all videos have informative descriptions and annotations, the latter usually noting differences between the early footage and released game {or, in some cases, if a featured game ended up not being released at all})
  • OKeijiDragon's YouTube channel (prototype game footage in really good quality {some recorded by him, others from various tapes}, plus videos showing off some glitches/oversights; the footage from various tapes includes Mother 2, Super Mario RPG, and Sonic Adventure)

16-bit Zelda II theme (from the SNES Burn-In Test Cart page, as it's been removed from there)
A 16-bit redo of the title screen music from The Adventure of Link, possibly the only remnant of Nintendo's planned BS-X Zelda II tech demo. Plays during the Burn-In Test and when the Sound Module Test is completed.

Interesting(?) note
From the "Unused Text" section of the Wheel of Fortune (PlayStation 2) page:

UI: The wheel is spinning. WHEEE!!

This reminds me, somewhat, of how Wheel host Edd "Kookie" Byrnes acted on one of his episodes (he did two pilots in 1974 at NBC's insistence, but ended up hosting while drunk and test audiences felt he didn't fit; he was replaced by Chuck Woolery when the network greenlit the series a few months later). Granted, I'm sure this wasn't a deliberate reference (the only Byrnes footage that had aired before this game's release - heck, the only Byrnes footage that's ever been aired - was on the ceremonial 3,000th nighttime Wheel in 1998), but I found it amusing. :)

Great Quotes

The users on this site and Jul have come up with some great one-liners. :) This section is for my favorites, as well as some instances of general oddness.

Other than the below, a lot of cleanup, fixing, adding/removal of "TOC" from pages (where they were needed and no longer needed, respectively), and rational speculation.

Notable Contributions

  • The Cutting Room Floor:Content to expand – alphabetized each console's game list on May 8, 2012 so the page would look less haphazardly made and be easier to navigate. On June 30, this was further altered to organize the console list in chronological order by manufacturer (themselves in alphabetical order), with odds-and-ends in roughly-chronological order under "Misc.".

Templates/Categories

Game series templates and/or categories that I've created.

Uploads

  • "Eternal Champions cftds - Unused Dark EC frames.png": A new version of the three unused Dark Eternal Champion sprites from Eternal Champions: Challenge From the Dark Side, which was simply me changing the background from green to white; cropping out excess space; and lining up the sprites to look proper in that regard.
  • "SMWTitleEarly2.png": Picture of the second preliminary Super Mario World US title screen, since replaced by a slightly cleaner/brighter video capture.
  • "WheelPS1'98 Master Wheel Layout.png" and "WheelPS1'98 Unused High Score Table.png": Two unused elements from Wheel of Fortune (PlayStation) that were kindly given to me by fellow BAV user "woffan2008".

Moved Pages

Precedent on this wiki has shown that multiplatform games should have the system mentioned in its title, just in case a page is needed for any of its other releases (and even if not, it avoids disambiguation and clears things up for the "Category" lists). There are several other reasons for moving pages, though.

  • Battletoads (NES): Moved from "Battletoads" due to the Amiga, CD-32, Game Boy, Game Gear, and Genesis versions.
  • Prerelease:Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter (Arcade): Moved from Notes due to only covering prerelease material.
  • Pac-in-Time (Game Boy): Moved from "Pac-in Time (Game Boy)" due to missing a hyphen that was clearly in the title screen.
  • Shadow the Hedgehog (GameCube): Moved from "Shadow the Hedgehog" due to the PS2 and Xbox versions.
  • Proto:Shadow Warrior (PC): Moved from "Shadow Warrior" due to only containing info on the Version 0.90 prototype. (Since deleted as said info was vague and only mentioned a prototype.)
  • Sonic Spinball (Genesis): Moved from "Sonic Spinball" due to the Master System and Game Gear versions. Similarly, Proto:Sonic Spinball (Genesis) was moved from "Proto:Sonic Spinball" due to the many Game Gear prototypes.
  • Proto:Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Genesis): Moved from "Proto:Sonic the Hedgehog 2" due to not showing up on the relevant main page. (Subpages were since moved to use "Prototype" instead of "Beta".)
  • Prerelease:Sword of Vermilion (SNES): Moved from Notes due to only covering prerelease material.
  • Wheel of Fortune (NES): Moved from "Wheel of Fortune" due to the myriad of other versions (Arcade, C64, DS, Game Boy, Game.Com, Game Gear, Genesis, N64, PC, PS1, PS2, PS3, Sega CD, SNES, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, and various mobile/online formats including Facebook and iOS).

Plus lots of other pages in regard to improper capitalization, spelling, and/or punctuation.
