Once, I picked up the turtle at the beginning and tossed it at a boulder. It bounced back at me, and I died from the force of the impact.

This is surprisingly easy to do with certain objects, such as tires. I've killed myself many times while trying to stack tires on top of other people.

Didn't you know that a banana is one of the most deadly weapons in Crysis?

Pretty much any object does a lot of damage if you toss it with maximum strength on.

The best one has to be the frying pan though. I love how your guy holds it.

 
Re: Bugs/glitches in games... funny ones preferably
My computer went through a stage of doing that with just about every game I played, problem was the graphics card overheating. Not sure what would cause it to happen with just one game though, that's a pretty nasty 'bug' if that is what it is.

In retrospect, I have seen a slight drop in compatibility between very early versions of Direct X and the most modern ones.
I'd suspect that too, if it weren't for the fact that Diablo 2 is a 2D game and thus shouldn't be using any more graphics power then drawing my desktop does, and of course I've been playing Bioshock, Mass Effect, etc for hours both prior to and after the Diablo 2 crash, with nary a hitch.  I haven't had a random crash of any sort in years, and the machine is pretty much the definition of stability (I spend entirely too much time tweaking it.  Cold booting it only takes 46 seconds to reach the desktop with everything loaded, and it shuts down in 2 seconds.  Yay.)

Other old 2D games like Fallout run just fine, so it's not likely to be some problem with my DirectDraw rendering, so I'm fairly certain Diablo 2 just hates me.
Everything is better with monkeys.  Even pie.

That is the best first post I have ever seen.

I'm sure that 16,572 Splinter Cell Chaos Theory players and a dog have already seen this at least three times, but five minutes ago I experienced it myself.



The perfect place to hide a body. And all I did was hit him once.

The best thing is one move you can perform in the first level. If you hang off the railing on the lighthouse and go close to the enemy guy, you can actually pull him over it and throw him down. I think this is the only place in the game where it can be done.

Ah, that one. Well, that is a "feature" and not a bug/glitch. But I've done it on the next level as well, somewhere between the bridge and the launch. Granted, the guy fell like, what, 4 feet, but luckily was still knocked out.

That's true. I just meant that it "hides" the body rather nicely.

And it's stylish. But I seem to remember that when I tried that once, the poor fellow died and, more importantly, my rank dropped.

Not much of a bug... just a fun AI.

I was playing Assassin's Creed the other day and I had to mug one target in order to get info from him. I followed him to a more deserted area of the city and began beating him up. There were some bystanders nearby though and when they noticed us fighting one female NPC got in panic. I thought she was going to run away screaming, but instead she began jumping betweeng walls and on top of a pillar like a ninja. She did that for a while and then leaped down to the street and began walking away like nothing ever happened. Cracked me up at the time.
Habeeb it...
