A long time ago, my old friend BMF54123 (whose you might recognize from some of my game translations - he helped me quite a bit with technical stuff) had a section on his web site called "The Cutting Room Floor". He wrote about all the unused stuff people found in games. He had quite a bit of content, but he didn't update the page very often - probably because he was too busy with real life. I ended up forgetting about the page for quite a few years, but I stumbled upon it fairly recently, only to find it wasn't a page anymore - it was now a wiki.
And I figured, BMF helped me a lot. So why not return the favor? And so, I have.
Some of the more interesting stuff I've contributed is the unused text in Yume Penguin Monogatari (as well as an explanation of the anti-piracy features, as explained to me by a hacker who never told me who he really was), unused music and sound effects in Art of Fighting (Neo-Geo), and how to play Jackal in Konami Collector's Series: Castlevania & Contra! Well, sorta. I still have no idea if there's a real code to play the games.
I'm currently working on a bombshell of an entry for The Punisher. Well, three entries. I originally found some unused stuff on the PC version, then I found some more stuff on the PS2 version, and then I found some really awesome stuff on the Xbox version. I'll post this content as soon as I'm finished.
Oh yeah, I was supposed to talk about comics too, wasn't I? Well... how about some Punisher stuff, since I'm already messing with the games?
