Video Game Easter Eggs #13 (Just Cause 4, Daymare: 1998, Control & More)

hello and welcome to episode 13 of video
game Easter eggs the series where we uncover some of the best Easter eggs and
video games with the only rule being they cannot have been seen on my channel
before in today’s video we experiment with an abandoned nuclear bomb in Just
Cause 4 we are treated to a homemade music video in the fantastic control and
we discover yet another red balloon in Daymare 1998 if you think you know of an
easter egg that I’m yet to cover then the best place to let me know is on
Instagram Twitter or discord the links to all three are in the description oh
and if you do enjoy these videos then a like is hugely appreciated it really
does help a lot anyway without further delay let’s get started so first up
let’s start with a game I’m not sure many of you will have heard of Daymare 1998 is
a third-person survival horror game that aims to evoke the mood of the classic
survival horror titles of the 90s like Resident Evil and Silent Hill whilst it
doesn’t always achieve its goal puzzles are often confusing and make little to
no sense enemy design is a bit on the bland side and the less said about the
voice acting the better the Sacred Heart Hospital she’s going there and then
he’ll be there if you’re looking for a game to scratch that survival horror
itch before the Resident Evil three remake comes out you could do a lot
worse than Daymare 1998 when it comes to Easter eggs though it seems that the
Daymare developers followed the dummies guide to video game Easter eggs book to
a tee more on that in a bit first up at the
start of chapter 3 you wake up in an apartment upon further inspection you
can find several movie posters inspired by real-life films with classics like
face-on and dependence week in the next room we see that this is in fact the
workplace of invader studios the developers of Daymare 1998 along with
more movie posters my personal favorite being die soft you can also find a dead
invader studios employee so you know I mentioned that this game followed the
dummies guide to video game Easter eggs I meant that Daymare has two of the most
common references found in video games during chapter 2 you can find this surprise surprise a red balloon coming
from a drain so credit where it’s due the drain has a couple of rather creepy
looking eyes staring back at you along with the paper boat Georgie was seen
playing with in the 2017 film oh and if you shoot the balloon you also get the
what is it achievement the the final daymare 1998 Easter Egg well in this video
at least can be found during chapter three after restoring power to the gas
station head down to the garage and take a look inside so not only does this car
look incredibly similar to the DeLorean from the Back to the Future films but
next to the car you can find the flux capacitor which is used to power the
DeLorean in the films as if to hammer my point home even more this isn’t the
last that we’ll see of Back to the Future in this video right up next let’s
take a trip back to the gift that keeps on giving
gears 5 continued the Gears of War tradition of having great Easter eggs
but this next Easter egg is a little different if you load up the district
map in horde you can spot an arcade both entrances to the arcade are locked and
there seems to be no way in well if you shoot this sign a lot and I do mean a
lot it took nearly 400 bullets you will eventually hear this so it sounds like an arcade machine
every time you shoot the sign time to stock up on ammo and shoot the sign on
the other side to shoot that sign enough and this will happen so for some reason the doors on the arcade you blow up allowing you to enter this Easter eggs a
bit weird really after you’ve gained access to the arcade
there isn’t much you can do none of the machines can be interacted with and
there’s nothing of note in the room perhaps there’s more to this Easter Egg
than meets the eye up next is the brilliant control when the game launched
I rushed through it looking for Easter eggs meaning I didn’t really take the
time to appreciate just how good control actually is but it turns out after
going back and playing control over the Christmas break and enjoying it
immensely I missed quite a few Easter eggs on the first go-round the first of
which can be found at the very beginning of the game so on the surface of things this high
voltage sign may seem normal however it’s the 1.21 gigawatts that caught my
eye this is the required voltage for time travel in the backs of the future films up next a reference to one of the most iconic videogame characters ever in the black rock quarry you can find this so a crowbar pretty underwhelming just
because it’s a crowbar doesn’t mean it’s a reference to anything or anyone right
well if I told you that the name on the crowbar is freeman tools you know
who else uses a crowbar has a last name of freeman and is an iconic video game
character that’s right it’s big bird from Sesame Street no of course not this
is a nod to half-life protagonist Gordon Freeman and his trusty crowbar this
final control clip isn’t necessarily an easter egg but it’s something that a lot
of people might miss and it’s definitely worth sharing near the end of the game
you can enter a room in the motel and find this so that was a song about Jesse by dr.
darling the actor who played dr. darling in game Matthew poretta was
actually nominated for the best performance in video games at the 2019
game awards and control is full of tapes like this for players to find so last
year I made a video covering 15 Easter eggs in hunt showdown I thought I’d
covered all of the major discoveries in the game but it turned out I was wrong
near the Blanc binary you can find this so a lot of people believe this to be a
Bob Ross reference you know the famous American painter I mean it definitely
could be or it could just be a random man who decided to paint in the
wilderness who knows so the final game we’re taking a look at today is just
cause 4 again we’ve covered so many Easter eggs in Just Cause 4 but with
each update to the game comes more Easter eggs to find the first Easter Egg
can be found at this location and is going to take some explaining so somebody in a morphsuit dancing in a building under construction if you go
away and come back the color of the morphsuit will change but other than
that I have no idea what’s going on here this next Easter Egg is definitely a
contender for our saddest Easter eggs in video game series at this location
you can find this so I don’t really think this one needs
any explaining rest in peace Maddie the finally easter egg in today’s video will blow your socks off literally at this location you can find this So an abandoned nuclear bomb me being genius that I am I tried to shoot the bomb
but unfortunately nothing happened time to call in the big guns so after
shooting 25 missiles from an attack helicopter this happened even though we blew the bomb up if you
travel away from the area and it doesn’t need to be far away either the bomb will
respawn allowing you to blow it up again and again so that’s it for today’s video
if you enjoyed this video then a like is really appreciated if you are a fan of
Easter eggs and secrets in games then perhaps consider subscribing as that’s
what this channel is all about thank you all very much watching and I’ll speak to
you soon you

Sierra · February 1, 2020 at 6:46 pm

Vincent Phillips · February 1, 2020 at 6:54 pm

You forgot the ghost ship in just cause

Whispy Woodz · February 1, 2020 at 7:53 pm

It’s the green man from it’s always sunny in Philadelphia

Creed · February 1, 2020 at 8:30 pm

Idk if it was just me or if it’s even supposed to be there but for the Just cause one while going to find the dancing dude he passed by a blue chair in the ground? Idk if anyone can tell if that’s always there or if it’s just a byproduct of the environment but if it’s a permanent thing then it’s another Easter egg

Liam Gallatin · February 1, 2020 at 8:30 pm

I feel like in Daymare, the IT easter egg would have been much better without the big balloon.

Mr. OddBoi · February 1, 2020 at 8:44 pm

In this location, you can find this

*ad starts randomly playing

actingamer101 · February 1, 2020 at 11:51 pm

Never expected a castlevania reference from Gears of War

Lord-of-Roses · February 1, 2020 at 11:59 pm

I swear, some of these days you'll actually have to cover an easter egg about Big Bird and it'll be the funniest thing.

Tk-5748 · February 2, 2020 at 12:01 am

I love dogs too…

WEEZY WAITY UK · February 2, 2020 at 12:11 am

Husnain Naeem · February 2, 2020 at 4:34 am

Captain Eggcellent I know the just cause 4 easter egg the guy who is dancing in the mob with different colours is might be reference to Major Lazer light it up remix trust me I know about this Easter egg

E Mac · February 2, 2020 at 5:52 am

Insane what is IT

シュガー · February 2, 2020 at 6:22 am

2:48 that is closer to a Deluxo (GTA Online) than a DeLorean

Carson Givens · February 2, 2020 at 8:42 am

I mean daymare wants to evoke the same vibes as games like resident evil 1 and silent hill 1 and honestly there’s no better way to do that than convoluted puzzles and cheesy voice acting

Tony Robles · February 2, 2020 at 8:46 am

My favorite "Control" easter egg is the "Alan Wake" one

Pozitron724 · February 2, 2020 at 9:20 am

The painting in hunt down shadows the way it is painted with colors but not completed reminds me of the painting of Franklin D Roosevelt where In the middle of having him painting complained of headache later on passing away, with the painting incomplete since 1945. And the way the surrounding area with the trees looks somewhat similar to the surrounding trees in the little White House where the paint was still painting.

Rubentje · February 2, 2020 at 9:37 am

Congrats on reaching the 10 minute mark so you can squeeze more ads in your video

ImFatAndFunny · February 2, 2020 at 9:39 am

5. a secret science base will go straight to the Moon
6. Secret Memorial burial "Maddie"

chris.tres · February 2, 2020 at 6:25 pm

7:45 GREENMAN from its always sunny

TOO YOUNG 2 COME UP · February 2, 2020 at 6:29 pm

Am I the only one that noticed that in Daymare (1998) the red balloon was on Jackson street? Jackson street is the street where Georgie got his arm ripped off in IT (2017)

The Neon · February 2, 2020 at 7:05 pm

The pink morph suit is reference to filthy Frank show and pink guy

Just saying

gamer guy · February 2, 2020 at 7:40 pm

I think the one in gears 5 is the thrashball table hasn't appeared since gears of war 3 which then you could play it

Jared Payment · February 2, 2020 at 7:54 pm


Reaper Leviathan · February 2, 2020 at 9:04 pm

I think the nuclear bomb is supposed to be a reference to the M448 Rocket Launcher from the previous game since it has a sort of electric explosion to it, similar to the M488

Matt Hanson · February 2, 2020 at 9:31 pm

Daymare! Uhaaaaaaahhh

Dalton Storm · February 3, 2020 at 1:19 am

In Control there is another crowbar that is locked inside the panopticon

kilerseb117 · February 3, 2020 at 1:48 am

Blazinking · February 3, 2020 at 2:54 am

Pink guy and I idubbbz

Sxd-kid · February 3, 2020 at 4:07 am

Hey captain can you do sad Easter eggs

K Lee Spurlin · February 3, 2020 at 5:27 am

When I saw the crowbar I you didn't even need to say "Freeman"

Dr. Toboggan · February 3, 2020 at 8:11 am

That nuke was really underwhelming…

TJS_123 · February 3, 2020 at 8:56 am

In the first back to the future Easter egg in daymare you can see doc and Marty dead on the ground

Joel Virki · February 3, 2020 at 9:36 am

7:48 its the classic nobody!

Cønch Miller · February 3, 2020 at 12:11 pm

The last easter egg is for Fallout New Vegas.

Buraphon Sanguanthoi · February 3, 2020 at 12:18 pm

Me: what is daymar
My friend : is something in the day you have a nightmare so is daymare

The Keeper · February 3, 2020 at 3:24 pm

I think the pick person is pink guy and green guy is I dubs

Hayden · February 3, 2020 at 3:42 pm

Just cause Easter egg should be like Hitman's one… Where you can literally blew up the entire city (killing yourself in the process) by shooting the nuclear bomb.

Dean Smith · February 3, 2020 at 5:14 pm

That "Nuke" was very disappointing.

A-Pathetic Me · February 3, 2020 at 11:24 pm

And the whole time I thought I was the only believer in the theory that Gordon Freeman is really Big Bird….who knew?!

Rhonda Gray · February 3, 2020 at 11:24 pm

7:20 wait what about layers of fear the guy paints and he is scared of his own paintings.

Noah Shaw · February 4, 2020 at 12:52 am

Travis Scott?¿

Nut Bag · February 4, 2020 at 1:12 am

You missed the thermos from Alan Wake

Coheedfan1988 · February 4, 2020 at 1:43 am

Purple guy from 5 Nights at Freddy's on the wall at 2:35? 🤔

Velvet Aeon · February 4, 2020 at 3:35 am

The dancing guy is from 'it's always sunny in Philadelphia' the green man

matt · February 4, 2020 at 3:52 am

I think Back to the Future is THE movie with the most references in Video games.

Vahlok142 · February 4, 2020 at 4:05 am

I feel like the morph suit dancer is a reference potentially to Just Dance, where all the characters are mostly bright neon colors like that. I make that connection as well since it would be a pun; Just Cause , Just Dance ?

Ground Beef · February 4, 2020 at 6:41 am

You are able to move the bomb in jc4 don’t know how tho

GustaviusII · February 4, 2020 at 8:17 am

The mark on the nuke, it is cod: ghost sign

Demon Intellect · February 4, 2020 at 10:34 am

Lol "Daymare 1998 sets to recreate the feeling of horror survival games from the 90's, but doesnt always succeed. The puzzle are confusing and make little sense." So what you mean is it perfectly captures it. Resident evil games are the king of puzzles that make no sense.

Abyan Khalid · February 4, 2020 at 1:05 pm

I think that hunt showdown painting easter eggs is Mr Bean that episode I don't know what's episode called but its a Mr bean animated show easter eggs

ItsYuki · February 4, 2020 at 5:49 pm

R.I.P. Maddie

Lego Indiana Jones · February 6, 2020 at 1:00 am

Gamer moment

FOTOJADAMO · February 6, 2020 at 11:34 am

That power sign actually says "1.21 gigawarts" instead of "1.21 jigawatts".

Gary Jackson · February 7, 2020 at 9:20 pm


Chris Vela · February 8, 2020 at 1:12 am

I hope one day a Video Game company actually makes a Big Bird Easter Egg lol!!

Wolf Dreemurr · February 8, 2020 at 1:13 am

Jake MH · February 8, 2020 at 10:43 pm

EE:In Black ops 2 there is a hammer like Thores and there is lightning in the background it’s on the second mission

Jake MH · February 8, 2020 at 10:43 pm

Scott Byrne · February 9, 2020 at 1:00 am

Bl Ll · February 17, 2020 at 2:55 am

Hunter Mcrodgers · February 17, 2020 at 5:13 pm

4:38 those foosball tables can be found in Gears 3 on the ship when you have to gather up your crew

Justin Maddox · February 18, 2020 at 7:37 pm

Jumble Drops1029 · March 1, 2020 at 8:53 am

Only reason the DeLorean is in the shop is cause it's engine is underpowered and he needs to put an LS in it.
