The Binding of Isaac Rebirth

Be the first to confirm this Super Mario 64 glitch, get $1,000

Recently, a video by twitch user DOTA_TeaBag was brought to my attention, in which he did an upwarp in Tick Tock Clock. I believe this is a new, unexplored glitch, but unfortunately I have been unsuccessful at recreating it myself. Thus, I'm putting a bounty of $1000 on the glitch. In other words, the first person to recreate the glitch and send it to me will earn $1000 from me.

The submission should be a .m64 and .st file, which when played perform the glitch. To submit, you can zip up these files, upload to TinyUpload.com, and then send me the link in a comment or private message. The bounty will hold until the first person successfully submits a recreation of the glitch, at which point I will add the word [CLAIMED] to the end of this video's title, and then no one else will be eligible for the prize.

More details on how hard creating Smash Bros. is on Sakurai

Coming from Nintendo's Chris Pranger...

Sakurai's outlook on the games is very dire. He gets really sad when he finds out how people are reacting and he gets sad whenever there's a leak, because he really wants to create. And he's an auteur in the most crazy sense. He's basically Vincent Van Gogh cutting off his own ear and we're sitting there going "Frick! Stop doing that!" And he's like "You don't get it, guys, my vision!"

Yo-Kai Watch - learning the origins behind some Yo-Kai

Whisper

- resembles a traditional ghost
- appears white and billow-y
- amorphous shape
- mischievous, but also something of a guide for players as they learn about Yo-Kai

Dulluma

- based on daruma dolls
- daruma good luck charms come with blank eyes
- fill in one when you set a goal for yourself, then the other when you’ve achieved it
- Dulluma’s eyes are blank, but maybe he’ll still be lucky for people who add him to their team

Walkappa

- aquatic yokai based upon the kappa
- kappa in mythology was a fearsome, river dwelling, beaked creature that loved cucumbers
- kappa had to keep water in a bowl on its head
- If the bowl dried out, the kappa would lose power and possibly die
- Walkappa has a similar bowl-shaped head, and also carries a bottle of water so he’ll never dry out

Zashiki-warashi

- Zashiki-warashi means it’s a mischievous house spirit that looks like a small person
- wide eyes and a smirk
