Well, Just Cause 3 is my favorite game now. The open world blow’em-up from Avalanche Studios is jam packed with explosions, big air, and Easter eggs.
One of those, demonstrated by Arrekz Gaming in the video above, though, might be best Easter egg this year.
With some careful work, you can unlock Doge Mode. That doesn’t make you an Italian lord, as you may have guessed. Instead, it quickly starts applying the same sort of colorful superlatives to on-screen happenings that you see in images using the Doge image meme. If you’re not familiar, you can read up on it at Know Your Meme.
The meme has been around for some time, and this isn’t the first time it’s popped up in a game. Just recently, the new 3DS game Tri-Force Heroes and the indie darling Undertale both made references to it. This is the first instance I can think of, though, that actually incorporates the meme into gameplay, putting it a step above than a simple one-off reference. As dated as the reference is, Doge still cracks me up to this day, and I can’t wait to activate this mode.
